Numbers 23:13-30 [ Verse 24 in Original: Hebrew / Greek ]
             [ Read Chapter | Discuss these Verses ]
13 Then Balak said to him, "Please come with me to another place from where you may see them, although you will only see the extreme end of them and will not see all of them; and curse them for me from there." 14 So he took him to the field of Zophim, to the top of Pisgah, and built seven altars and offered a bull and a ram on each altar. 15 And he said to Balak, "Stand here beside your burnt offering while I myself meet the LORD over there." 16 Then the LORD met Balaam and put R690 a word in his mouth and said, "Return to Balak, and thus you shall speak." 17 He came to him, and behold, he was standing beside his burnt offering, and the leaders of Moab with him. And Balak said to him, "What has the LORD spoken?" 18 Then he took up his discourse F337 and said, "Arise, O Balak, and hear; Give ear to me, O son of Zippor! 19 "God R691 is not a man, that He should lie, Nor a son of man, that He should repent; Has R692 He said, and will He not do it? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good? 20 "Behold, I have received a command to bless; When R693 He has blessed, then I R694 cannot revoke it. 21 "He R695 has not observed misfortune F338 in Jacob; Nor R696 has He seen trouble in Israel; The R697 LORD his God is with him, And R698 the shout of a king is among them. 22 "God R699 brings them out of Egypt, He is for them like the horns R700 of the wild ox. 23 "For R701 there is no omen against Jacob, Nor is there any divination against Israel; At the proper time it shall be said to Jacob And to Israel, what God has done! 24 "Behold, R702 a people rises like a lioness, And as a lion it lifts itself; It will not lie down until it devours the prey, And drinks the blood of the slain." 25 Then Balak said to Balaam, "Do not curse them at all nor bless them at all!" 26 But Balaam replied to Balak, "Did I not tell you, `Whatever R703 F339 the LORD speaks, that I must do'?" 27 Then Balak said to Balaam, "Please come, I will take you to another place; perhaps it will be agreeable F340 with God that you curse them for me from there." 28 So Balak took Balaam to the top of Peor which overlooks the wasteland. F341 29 Balaam said to Balak, "Build seven altars for me here and prepare seven bulls and seven rams for me here." 30 Balak did just as Balaam had said, and offered up a bull and a ram on each altar.
