Then Balaam said to Balak, "Build me seven altars here and prepare seven bulls and seven rams for me."
Numbers 23:1 In-Context
Balaam said, “Build me seven altars here, and prepare seven bulls and seven rams for me.”
Balak did as Balaam said, and the two of them offered a bull and a ram on each altar.
Then Balaam said to Balak, “Stay here beside your offering while I go aside. Perhaps the LORD will come to meet with me. Whatever he reveals to me I will tell you.” Then he went off to a barren height.
God met with him, and Balaam said, “I have prepared seven altars, and on each altar I have offered a bull and a ram.”
The LORD put a word in Balaam’s mouth and said, “Go back to Balak and give him this word.”
