View In My Bible
1 Bil`am said to Balak, Build me here seven altars, and prepare me here seven bulls and seven rams. 2 Balak did as Bil`am had spoken; and Balak and Bil`am offered on every altar a bull and a ram. 3 Bil`am said to Balak, Stand by your burnt offering, and I will go: perhaps the LORD will come to meet me; and whatever he shows me I will tell you. He went to a bare height. 4 God met Bil`am: and he said to him, I have prepared the seven altars, and I have offered up a bull and a ram on every altar 5 The LORD put a word in Bil`am's mouth, and said, Return to Balak, and thus you shall speak. 6 He returned to him, and, behold, he was standing by his burnt- offering, he, and all the princes of Mo'av. 7 He took up his parable, and said, From Aram has Balak brought me, The king of Mo'av from the mountains of the East: Come, curse me Ya`akov, Come, defy Yisra'el. 8 How shall I curse, whom God has not cursed? How shall I defy, whom the LORD has not defied? 9 For from the top of the rocks I see him, From the hills I see him: behold, it is a people that dwells alone, And shall not be reckoned among the nations. 10 Who can count the dust of Ya`akov, Or number the fourth part of Yisra'el? Let me die the death of the righteous, Let my last end be like his! 11 Balak said to Bil`am, What have you done to me? I took you to curse my enemies, and, behold, you have blessed them altogether. 12 He answered and said, Must I not take heed to speak that which the LORD puts in my mouth? 13 Balak said to him, Please come with me to another place, from whence you may see them; you shall see but the utmost part of them, and shall not see them all: and curse me them from there. 14 He took him into the field of Zophim, to the top of Pisgah, and built seven altars, and offered up a bull and a ram on every altar 15 He said to Balak, Stand here by your burnt offering, while I meet [the LORD] yonder. 16 The LORD met Bil`am, and put a word in his mouth, and said, Return to Balak, and thus shall you speak. 17 He came to him, and, behold, he was standing by his burnt offering, and the princes of Mo'av with him. Balak said to him, What has the LORD spoken? 18 He took up his parable, and said, Rise up, Balak, and hear; Listen to me, you son of Tzippor: 19 God is not a man, that he should lie, Neither the son of man, that he should repent: Has he said, and will he not do it? Or has he spoken, and will he not make it good 20 Behold, I have received [mitzvah] to bless: He has blessed, and I can't reverse it. 21 He has not saw iniquity in Ya`akov; Neither has he seen perverseness in Yisra'el: The LORD his God is with him, The shout of a king is among them 22 God brings them forth out of Mitzrayim; He has as it were the strength of the wild-ox. 23 Surely there is no enchantment with Ya`akov; Neither is there any divination with Yisra'el: Now shall it be said of Ya`akov and of Yisra'el, What has God done! 24 Behold, the people rises up as a lioness, As a lion does he lift himself up: He shall not lie down until he eat of the prey, Drink the blood of the slain. 25 Balak said to Bil`am, Neither curse them at all, nor bless them at all. 26 But Bil`am answered Balak, Didn't I tell you, saying, All that the LORD speaks, that I must do? 27 Balak said to Bil`am, Come now, I will take you to another place; peradventure it will please God that you may curse me them from there. 28 Balak took Bil`am to the top of Pe`or, that looks down on the desert. 29 Bil`am said to Balak, Build me here seven altars, and prepare me here seven bulls and seven rams. 30 Balak did as Bil`am had said, and offered up a bull and a ram on every altar.
