Numbers 22:1-6 (New Living Translation)

View In My Bible
1 Then the people of Israel traveled to the plains of Moab and camped east of the Jordan River, across from Jericho. 2 Balak son of Zippor, the Moabite king, knew what the Israelites had done to the Amorites. 3 And when they saw how many Israelites there were, he and his people were terrified. 4 The king of Moab said to the leaders of Midian, "This mob will devour everything in sight, like an ox devours grass!" So Balak, king of Moab, 5 sent messengers to Balaam son of Beor, who was living in his native land of Pethor a near the Euphrates River. b He sent this message to request that Balaam come to help him: "A vast horde of people has arrived from Egypt. They cover the face of the earth and are threatening me. 6 Please come and curse them for me because they are so numerous. Then perhaps I will be able to conquer them and drive them from the land. I know that blessings fall on the people you bless. I also know that the people you curse are doomed."
