NKJV 1 Then Balaam said to Balak, "Build seven altars for me here, and prepare for me here seven bulls and seven rams."

NIV 2 Balak did as Balaam said, and the two of them offered a bull and a ram on each altar. NKJV 3 Then Balaam 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." So he went to a desolate height. NIV 3 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. NKJV 4 And God met Balaam, and he said to Him, "I have prepared the seven altars, and I have offered on each altar a bull and a ram. NIV 4 God met with him, and Balaam said, “I have prepared seven altars, and on each altar I have offered a bull and a ram.” NKJV 5 Then the Lord put a word in Balaam's mouth, and said, "Return to Balak, and thus you shall speak." NIV 5 The LORD put a word in Balaam’s mouth and said, “Go back to Balak and give him this word.” NKJV 6 So he returned to him, and there he was, standing by his burnt offering, he and all the princes of Moab.

NKJV 7 And he took up his oracle and said: "Balak the king of Moab has brought me from Aram, From the mountains of the east. 'Come, curse Jacob for me, And come, denounce Israel!' NIV 7 Then Balaam spoke his message: “Balak brought me from Aram, the king of Moab from the eastern mountains. ‘Come,’ he said, ‘curse Jacob for me; come, denounce Israel.’ NKJV 8 "How shall I curse whom God has not cursed? And how shall I denounce whom the Lord has not denounced? NIV 8 How can I curse those whom God has not cursed? How can I denounce those whom the LORD has not denounced? NKJV 9 For from the top of the rocks I see him, And from the hills I behold him; There! A people dwelling alone, Not reckoning itself among the nations. NIV 9 From the rocky peaks I see them, from the heights I view them. I see a people who live apart and do not consider themselves one of the nations. NKJV 10 "Who can count the dust of Jacob, Or number one-fourth of Israel? Let me die the death of the righteous, And let my end be like his!" NIV 10 Who can count the dust of Jacob or number even a fourth of Israel? Let me die the death of the righteous, and may my final end be like theirs!” NKJV 11 Then Balak said to Balaam, "What have you done to me? I took you to curse my enemies, and look, you have blessed them bountifully!" NIV 11 Balak said to Balaam, “What have you done to me? I brought you to curse my enemies, but you have done nothing but bless them!” NKJV 12 So he answered and said, "Must I not take heed to speak what the Lord has put in my mouth?" NIV 12 He answered, “Must I not speak what the LORD puts in my mouth?” NKJV 13 Then Balak said to him, "Please come with me to another place from which you may see them; you shall see only the outer part of them, and shall not see them all; curse them for me from there." NIV 13 Then Balak said to him, “Come with me to another place where you can see them; you will not see them all but only the outskirts of their camp.

Has He said, and will He not do? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good NIV 19 God is not human, that he should lie, not a human being, that he should change his mind.
