"I see him, but not now; I behold him, but not near.1 A star will come out of Jacob;2 a scepter will rise out of Israel.3 He will crush the foreheads of Moab,4 the skullsa5 ofb all the sons of Sheth.c18
Edom6 will be conquered; Seir,7 his enemy, will be conquered,8 but Israel9 will grow strong.
A ruler will come out of Jacob10 and destroy the survivors of the city."
Then Balaam saw Amalek11 and uttered his oracle: "Amalek was first among the nations, but he will come to ruin at last."1221
Then he saw the Kenites13 and uttered his oracle: "Your dwelling place is secure,14 your nest is set in a rock;
yet you Kenites will be destroyed when Asshur15 takes you captive."
Then he uttered his oracle: "Ah, who can live when God does this?d24
Ships will come from the shores of Kittim;16 they will subdue Asshur17 and Eber,18 but they too will come to ruin.19"
