NET © Notes

tn Heb “he”; the referent (Balaam) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

tn Heb “and he lifted up his oracle and said.” So also in vv. 21, 23.

sn This probably means that it held first place, or it thought that it was “the first of the nations.” It was not the first, either in order or greatness.
