NUM 24:1 When Balaam saw that it pleased Yahweh to bless Israel, he didn't go, as at the other times, to meet with enchantments, but he set his face toward the wilderness.
NUM 24:2 Balaam lifted up his eyes, and he saw Israel dwelling according to their tribes; and the Spirit of God came on him.
NUM 24:3 He took up his parable, and said, Balaam the son of Beor says, The man whose eye was closed says;
NUM 24:4 He says, who hears the words of God, Who sees the vision of the Almighty, Falling down, and having his eyes open:
NUM 24:5 How goodly are your tents, Jacob, Your tents, Israel!
NUM 24:6 As valleys are they spread forth, As gardens by the river-side, As lign-aloes which Yahweh has planted, As cedar trees beside the waters.
NUM 24:7 Water shall flow from his buckets, His seed shall be in many waters, His king shall be higher than Agag, His kingdom shall be exalted.
NUM 24:8 God brings him forth out of Egypt; He has as it were the strength of the wild-ox: He shall eat up the nations his adversaries, Shall break their bones in pieces, Smite [them] through with his arrows.
NUM 24:9 He couched, he lay down as a lion, As a lioness; who shall rouse him up? Blessed be everyone who blesses you, Cursed be everyone who curses you.
NUM 24:10 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 altogether blessed them these three times.
NUM 24:11 Therefore now flee you to your place: I thought to promote you to great honor; but, behold, Yahweh has kept you back from honor.
NUM 24:12 Balaam said to Balak, Didn't I also tell your messengers who you sent to me, saying,
NUM 24:13 If Balak would give me his house full of silver and gold, I can't go beyond the word of Yahweh, to do either good or bad of my own mind; what Yahweh speaks, that will I speak?
NUM 24:14 Now, behold, I go to my people: come, [and] I will advertise you what this people shall do to your people in the latter days.
NUM 24:15 He took up his parable, and said, Balaam the son of Beor says, The man whose eye was closed says;
NUM 24:16 He says, who hears the words of God, Knows the knowledge of the Most High, Who sees the vision of the Almighty, Falling down, and having his eyes open:
NUM 24:17 I see him, but not now; I see him, but not near: There shall come forth a star out of Jacob, A scepter shall rise out of Israel, Shall strike through the corners of Moab, Break down all the sons of tumult.
NUM 24:18 Edom shall be a possession, Seir also shall be a possession, [who were] his enemies; While Israel does valiantly.
NUM 24:19 Out of Jacob shall one have dominion, Shall destroy the remnant from the city.
NUM 24:20 He looked at Amalek, and took up his parable, and said, Amalek was the first of the nations; But his latter end shall come to destruction.
NUM 24:21 He looked at the Kenite, and took up his parable, and said, Strong is your dwelling-place, Your nest is set in the rock.
NUM 24:22 Nevertheless Kain shall be wasted, Until Asshur shall carry you away captive.
NUM 24:23 He took up his parable, and said, Alas, who shall live when God does this?
NUM 24:24 But ships [shall come] from the coast of Kittim, They shall afflict Asshur, and shall afflict Eber; He also shall come to destruction.
NUM 24:25 Balaam rose up, and went and returned to his place; and Balak also went his way.
