Numbers 23

RHE 1 And Balaam said to Balac: Build me here seven altars, and prepare as many calves, and the same number of rams. NIV 1 Balaam said, “Build me seven altars here, and prepare seven bulls and seven rams for me.” RHE 2 And when he had done according to the word of Balaam, they laid together a calf and a ram upon every altar. NIV 2 Balak did as Balaam said, and the two of them offered a bull and a ram on each altar. RHE 3 And Balaam said to Balac: Stand a while by thy burnt offering, until I go, to see if perhaps the Lord will meet me, and whatsoever he shall command, I will speak to thee. 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. RHE 4 And when he was gone with speed, God met him. And Balaam speaking to him, said: I have erected seven altars, and have laid on everyone a calf 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.” RHE 5 And the Lord put the word in his mouth, and said: Return to Balac, and thus shalt thou speak. NIV 5 The LORD put a word in Balaam’s mouth and said, “Go back to Balak and give him this word.” RHE 6 Returning he found Balac standing by his burnt offering, with all the princes of the Moabites: NIV 6 So he went back to him and found him standing beside his offering, with all the Moabite officials. RHE 7 And taking up his parable, he said: Balac king of the Moabites hath brought me from Aram, from the mountains of the east: Come, said he, and curse Jacob: make haste and detest 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.’ RHE 8 How shall I curse him, whom God hath not cursed? By what means should I detest him, whom the Lord detesteth not? NIV 8 How can I curse those whom God has not cursed? How can I denounce those whom the LORD has not denounced? RHE 9 I shall see him from the tops of the rocks, and shall consider him from the hills. This people shall dwell alone, and shall 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. RHE 10 Who can count the dust of Jacob, and know the number of the stock of Israel? Let my soul die the death of the just, and my last end be like to them. 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!” RHE 11 And Balac said to Balaam: What is this that thou dost? I sent for thee to curse my enemies: and thou contrariwise blessest 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!” RHE 12 He answered him: Can I speak any thing else but what the Lord commandeth? NIV 12 He answered, “Must I not speak what the LORD puts in my mouth?” RHE 13 Balac therefore said: Come with me to another place from whence thou mayest see part of Israel, and canst not see them all: curse them from thence. 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.” RHE 14 And when he had brought him to a high place, upon the top of mount Phasga, Balaam built seven altars, and laying on every one a calf and a ram 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. RHE 15 He said to Balac: Stand here by thy burnt offering while I go to meet him. NIV 15 Balaam said to Balak, “Stay here beside your offering while I meet with him over there.” RHE 16 And when the Lord had met him, and had put the word in his mouth, he said: Return to Balac, and thus shalt thou say to him. NIV 16 The LORD met with Balaam and put a word in his mouth and said, “Go back to Balak and give him this word.” RHE 17 Returning he found him standing by his burnt sacrifice, and the princes of the Moabites with him. And Balac said to him: What hath the Lord spoken? NIV 17 So he went to him and found him standing beside his offering, with the Moabite officials. Balak asked him, “What did the LORD say?” RHE 18 But he taking up his parable, said: Stand, O Balac, and give ear: hear, thou son of Sephor: NIV 18 Then he spoke his message: “Arise, Balak, and listen; hear me, son of Zippor. RHE 19 God is not a man, that he should lie, nor is the son of man, that he should be changed. Hath he said then, and will he not do? hath he spoken, and will he not fulfil 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? RHE 20 I was brought to bless, the blessing I am not able to hinder. NIV 20 I have received a command to bless; he has blessed, and I cannot change it. RHE 21 There is no idol in Jacob, neither is there an image god to be seen in Israel. The Lord his God is with him, and the sound of the victory of the king in him 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. RHE 22 God hath brought him out of Egypt, whose strength is like to the rhinoceros. NIV 22 God brought them out of Egypt; they have the strength of a wild ox. RHE 23 There is no soothsaying in Jacob, nor divination in Israel. In their times it shall be told to Jacob and to Israel what God hath wrought. 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!’ RHE 24 Behold the people shall rise up as a lioness, and shall lift itself up as a lion: it shall not lie down till it devour the prey, and drink 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.” RHE 25 And Balac said to Balaam: Neither curse, nor bless him. NIV 25 Then Balak said to Balaam, “Neither curse them at all nor bless them at all!” RHE 26 And he said: Did I not tell thee, that whatsoever God should command me, that I would do? NIV 26 Balaam answered, “Did I not tell you I must do whatever the LORD says?” RHE 27 And Balac said to him: Come and I will bring thee to another place; if peradventure it please God that thou mayest curse them from thence. NIV 27 Then Balak said to Balaam, “Come, let me take you to another place. Perhaps it will please God to let you curse them for me from there.” RHE 28 And when he had brought him upon the top of mount Phogor, which looketh towards the wilderness, NIV 28 And Balak took Balaam to the top of Peor, overlooking the wasteland. RHE 29 Balaam said to him: Build me here seven altars, and prepare as many calves, and the same number of rams. NIV 29 Balaam said, “Build me seven altars here, and prepare seven bulls and seven rams for me.” RHE 30 Balac did as Balaam had said: and he laid on every altar, a calf and a ram. NIV 30 Balak did as Balaam had said, and offered a bull and a ram on each altar.
