Balaam's Fourth Oracle

15 Then he proclaimed his poem: The oracle of Balaam son of Beor, the oracle of the man whose eyes are opened;a 16 the oracle of one who hears the sayings of God and has knowledge from the Most High, who sees a vision from the Almighty, who falls [into a trance] with [his] eyes uncovered:b 17 I see him,c but not now; I perceive him,d but not near. A star will come from Jacob, and a scepter will arise from Israel.e He will smash the foreheadf of Moab and strike downg all the Shethites.h 18 Edom will become a possession; Seiri will become a possession of its enemies, but Israel will be triumphant. 19 One who comes from Jacob will rule; he will destroy the city's survivors. 20 Then Balaam saw Amalek and proclaimed his poem: Amalek was first among the nations,j but his future is destruction. 21 Next he saw the Kenites and proclaimed his poem: Your dwelling place is enduring; your nest is set in the cliffs. 22 Kain will be destroyed when Asshur takes you captive. 23 Once more he proclaimed his poem: Ah, who can live when God does this? 24 Ships will come from the coast of Kittim;k they will afflict Asshur and Eber,l but they too will come to destruction. 25 Balaam then arose and went back to his homeland, and Balak also went his way.
