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

NIV 2 Balak did as Balaam said, and the two of them offered a bull and a ram on each altar. NAS 3 Then Balaam said to Balak, "Stand beside 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 bare hill. 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. NAS 4 Now God met Balaam, and he said to Him, "I have set up the seven altars, and I have offered up a bull and a ram on each altar. 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.” NAS 5 Then the LORD put a word in Balaam's mouth and said, "Return to Balak, and you shall speak thus." NIV 5 The LORD put a word in Balaam’s mouth and said, “Go back to Balak and give him this word.” NAS 6 So he returned to him, and behold, he was standing beside his burnt offering, he and all the leaders of Moab. NIV 6 So he went back to him and found him standing beside his offering, with all the Moabite officials. NAS 7 He took up his discourse and said, "From Aram Balak has brought me, Moab's king 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.’ NAS 8 "How shall I curse whom God has not cursed? And how can 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? NAS 9 "As I see him from the top of the rocks, And I look at him from the hills; Behold, a people who dwells apart, And will not be reckoned 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. NAS 10 "Who can count the dust of Jacob, Or number the fourth part of Israel? Let me die the death of the upright, 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!” NAS 11 Then Balak said to Balaam, "What have you done to me? I took you to curse my enemies, but behold, you have actually blessed them!" 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!” NAS 12 He replied, "Must I not be careful to speak what the LORD puts in my mouth?" NIV 12 He answered, “Must I not speak what the LORD puts in my mouth?” NAS 13 Then Balak said to him, "Please come with me to another place from where you may see them, although you will only see the extreme end of them and will not see all of them; and 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. And from there, curse them for me.” NAS 14 So he took him to the field of Zophim, to the top of Pisgah, and built seven altars and offered a bull and a ram on each altar NIV 14 So he took him to the field of Zophim on the top of Pisgah, and there he built seven altars and offered a bull and a ram on each altar.

NIV 18 Then he spoke his message: “Arise, Balak, and listen; hear me, son of Zippor.

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. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill? NAS 20 "Behold, I have received a command to bless; When He has blessed, then I cannot revoke it. NIV 20 I have received a command to bless; he has blessed, and I cannot change it. NAS 21 "He has not observed misfortune in Jacob; Nor has He seen trouble in Israel; The LORD his God is with him, And the shout of a king is among them NIV 21 “No misfortune is seen in Jacob, no misery observed in Israel. The LORD their God is with them; the shout of the King is among them. NAS 22 "God brings them out of Egypt, He is for them like the horns of the wild ox. NIV 22 God brought them out of Egypt; they have the strength of a wild ox. NAS 23 "For there is no omen against Jacob, Nor is there any divination against Israel; At the proper time it shall be said to Jacob And to Israel, what God has done! NIV 23 There is no divination against Jacob, no evil omens against Israel. It will now be said of Jacob and of Israel, ‘See what God has done!’ NAS 24 "Behold, a people rises like a lioness, And as a lion it lifts itself; It will not lie down until it devours the prey, And drinks the blood of the slain." NIV 24 The people rise like a lioness; they rouse themselves like a lion that does not rest till it devours its prey and drinks the blood of its victims.” NAS 25 Then Balak said to Balaam, "Do not curse them at all nor bless them at all!" NIV 25 Then Balak said to Balaam, “Neither curse them at all nor bless them at all!” NAS 26 But Balaam replied to Balak, "Did I not tell you, 'Whatever the LORD speaks, that I must do '?" NIV 26 Balaam answered, “Did I not tell you I must do whatever the LORD says?” NAS 27 Then Balak said to Balaam, "Please come, I will take you to another place; perhaps it will be agreeable with God that you curse them for me from there."
