Numbers 24

ESV 1 When Balaam saw that it pleased the LORD to bless Israel, he did not go, as at other times, to look for omens, but set his face toward the wilderness. NIV 1 Now when Balaam saw that it pleased the LORD to bless Israel, he did not resort to divination as at other times, but turned his face toward the wilderness. ESV 2 And Balaam lifted up his eyes and saw Israel camping tribe by tribe. And the Spirit of God came upon him, NIV 2 When Balaam looked out and saw Israel encamped tribe by tribe, the Spirit of God came on him ESV 3 and he took up his discourse and said, "The oracle of Balaam the son of Beor, the oracle of the man whose eye is opened, NIV 3 and he spoke his message: “The prophecy of Balaam son of Beor, the prophecy of one whose eye sees clearly, ESV 4 the oracle of him who hears the words of God, who sees the vision of the Almighty, falling down with his eyes uncovered: NIV 4 the prophecy of one who hears the words of God, who sees a vision from the Almighty,who falls prostrate, and whose eyes are opened: ESV 5 How lovely are your tents, O Jacob, your encampments, O Israel! NIV 5 “How beautiful are your tents, Jacob, your dwelling places, Israel! ESV 6 Like palm groves that stretch afar, like gardens beside a river, like aloes that the LORD has planted, like cedar trees beside the waters. NIV 6 “Like valleys they spread out, like gardens beside a river, like aloes planted by the LORD, like cedars beside the waters. ESV 7 Water shall flow from his buckets, and his seed shall be in many waters; his king shall be higher than Agag, and his kingdom shall be exalted. NIV 7 Water will flow from their buckets; their seed will have abundant water. “Their king will be greater than Agag; their kingdom will be exalted. ESV 8 God brings him out of Egypt and is for him like the horns of the wild ox; he shall eat up the nations, his adversaries, and shall break their bones in pieces and pierce them through with his arrows. NIV 8 “God brought them out of Egypt; they have the strength of a wild ox. They devour hostile nations and break their bones in pieces; with their arrows they pierce them. ESV 9 He crouched, he lay down like a lion and like a lioness; who will rouse him up? Blessed are those who bless you, and cursed are those who curse you." NIV 9 Like a lion they crouch and lie down, like a lioness—who dares to rouse them? “May those who bless you be blessed and those who curse you be cursed!” ESV 10 And Balak's anger was kindled against Balaam, and he struck his hands together. And Balak said to Balaam, "I called you to curse my enemies, and behold, you have blessed them these three times. NIV 10 Then Balak’s anger burned against Balaam. He struck his hands together and said to him, “I summoned you to curse my enemies, but you have blessed them these three times. ESV 11 Therefore now flee to your own place. I said, 'I will certainly honor you,' but the LORD has held you back from honor." NIV 11 Now leave at once and go home! I said I would reward you handsomely, but the LORD has kept you from being rewarded.” ESV 12 And Balaam said to Balak, "Did I not tell your messengers whom you sent to me, NIV 12 Balaam answered Balak, “Did I not tell the messengers you sent me, ESV 13 'If Balak should give me his house full of silver and gold, I would not be able to go beyond the word of the LORD, to do either good or bad of my own will. What the LORD speaks, that will I speak'? NIV 13 ‘Even if Balak gave me all the silver and gold in his palace, I could not do anything of my own accord, good or bad, to go beyond the command of the LORD—and I must say only what the LORD says’? ESV 14 And now, behold, I am going to my people. Come, I will let you know what this people will do to your people in the latter days." NIV 14 Now I am going back to my people, but come, let me warn you of what this people will do to your people in days to come.” ESV 15 And he took up his discourse and said, "The oracle of Balaam the son of Beor, the oracle of the man whose eye is opened, NIV 15 Then he spoke his message: “The prophecy of Balaam son of Beor, the prophecy of one whose eye sees clearly, ESV 16 the oracle of him who hears the words of God, and knows the knowledge of the Most High, who sees the vision of the Almighty, falling down with his eyes uncovered: NIV 16 the prophecy of one who hears the words of God, who has knowledge from the Most High, who sees a vision from the Almighty, who falls prostrate, and whose eyes are opened: ESV 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 forehead of Moab and break down all the sons of Sheth. NIV 17 “I see him, but not now; I behold him, but not near. A star will come out of Jacob; a scepter will rise out of Israel. He will crush the foreheads of Moab, the skulls of all the people of Sheth. ESV 18 Edom shall be dispossessed; Seir also, his enemies, shall be dispossessed. Israel is doing valiantly. NIV 18 Edom will be conquered; Seir, his enemy, will be conquered, but Israel will grow strong. ESV 19 And one from Jacob shall exercise dominion and destroy the survivors of cities!" NIV 19 A ruler will come out of Jacob and destroy the survivors of the city.” ESV 20 Then he looked on Amalek and took up his discourse and said, "Amalek was the first among the nations, but its end is utter destruction." NIV 20 Then Balaam saw Amalek and spoke his message: “Amalek was first among the nations, but their end will be utter destruction.” ESV 21 And he looked on the Kenite, and took up his discourse and said, "Enduring is your dwelling place, and your nest is set in the rock. NIV 21 Then he saw the Kenites and spoke his message: “Your dwelling place is secure, your nest is set in a rock; ESV 22 Nevertheless, Kain shall be burned when Asshur takes you away captive." NIV 22 yet you Kenites will be destroyed when Ashur takes you captive.” ESV 23 And he took up his discourse and said, "Alas, who shall live when God does this? NIV 23 Then he spoke his message: “Alas! Who can live when God does this? ESV 24 But ships shall come from Kittim and shall afflict Asshur and Eber; and he too shall come to utter destruction." NIV 24 Ships will come from the shores of Cyprus; they will subdue Ashur and Eber, but they too will come to ruin.” ESV 25 Then Balaam rose and went back to his place. And Balak also went his way. NIV 25 Then Balaam got up and returned home, and Balak went his own way.
