View In My Bible
15 So he uttered his oracle, saying: "The oracle of Balaam son of Beor, the oracle of the man whose eye is clear, a 16 the oracle of one who hears the words of God, and knows the knowledge of the Most High, b who sees the vision of the Almighty, c who falls down, but with his eyes uncovered: 17 I see him, but not now; I behold him, but not near— a star shall come out of Jacob, and a scepter shall rise out of Israel; it shall crush the borderlands d of Moab, and the territory e of all the Shethites. 18 Edom will become a possession, Seir a possession of its enemies, f while Israel does valiantly. 19 One out of Jacob shall rule, and destroy the survivors of Ir." 20 Then he looked on Amalek, and uttered his oracle, saying: "First among the nations was Amalek, but its end is to perish forever." 21 Then he looked on the Kenite, and uttered his oracle, saying: "Enduring is your dwelling place, and your nest is set in the rock; 22 yet Kain is destined for burning. How long shall Asshur take you away captive?" 23 Again he uttered his oracle, saying: "Alas, who shall live when God does this? 24 But ships shall come from Kittim and shall afflict Asshur and Eber; and he also shall perish forever." 25 Then Balaam got up and went back to his place, and Balak also went his way.
