1 H1109 And Balaam H559 said H1111 unto Balak, H1129 Build H7651 me here seven H4196 altars, H3559 and prepare H7651 me here seven H6499 bullocks H7651 and seven H352 rams.
2 H1111 And Balak H6213 did H1109 as Balaam H1696 had spoken; H1111 and Balak H1109 and Balaam H5927 offered H4196 on every altar H6499 a bullock H352 and a ram.
3 H1109 And Balaam H559 said H1111 unto Balak, H3320 Stand H5930 by thy burnt-offering, H3212 and I will go: H3068 peradventure Jehovah H7136 will come H7125 to meet H1697 me; and whatsoever H7200 he showeth H5046 me I will tell H3212 thee. And he went H8205 to a bare height.
4 H430 And God H7136 met H1109 Balaam: H559 and he said H6186 unto him, I have prepared H7651 the seven H4196 altars, H5927 and I have offered H6499 up a bullock H352 and a ram H4196 on every altar.
5 H3068 And Jehovah H7760 put H1697 a word H1109 in Balaam's H6310 mouth, H559 and said, H7725 Return H1111 unto Balak, H1696 and thus thou shalt speak.
6 H7725 And he returned H5324 unto him, and, lo, he was standing H5930 by his burnt-offering, H8269 he, and all the princes H4124 of Moab.
7 H5375 And he took up H4912 his parable, H559 and said, H758 From Aram H1111 hath Balak H5148 brought H4428 me, The king H4124 of Moab H2042 from the mountains H6924 of the East: H3212 Come, H779 curse H3290 me Jacob, H3212 And come, H2194 defy H3478 Israel.
8 H4100 How H5344 shall I curse, H410 whom God H6895 hath not cursed? H2194 And how shall I defy, H3068 whom Jehovah H2194 hath not defied?
9 H7218 For from the top H6697 of the rocks H7200 I see H1389 him, And from the hills H7789 I behold H5971 him: lo, it is a people H7931 that dwelleth H910 alone, H2803 And shall not be reckoned H1471 among the nations.
10 H4487 Who can count H6083 the dust H3290 of Jacob, H4557 Or number H7255 the fourth H3478 part of Israel? H4191 Let me die H4194 the death H3477 of the righteous, H319 And let my last end be like his!
11 H1111 And Balak H559 said H1109 unto Balaam, H6213 What hast thou done H3947 unto me? I took H6895 thee to curse H341 mine enemies, H1288 and, behold, thou hast blessed H1288 them altogether.
12 H6030 And he answered H559 and said, H8104 Must I not take heed H1696 to speak H3068 that which Jehovah H7760 putteth H6310 in my mouth?
13 H1111 And Balak H559 said H3212 unto him, Come, H312 I pray thee, with me unto another H4725 place, H7200 from whence thou mayest see H7200 them; thou shalt see H657 but H7097 the utmost H7200 part of them, and shalt not see H6895 them all: and curse me them from thence.
14 H3947 And he took H7704 him into the field H6839 of Zophim, H7218 to the top H6449 of Pisgah, H1129 and built H7651 seven H4196 altars, H5927 and offered H6499 up a bullock H352 and a ram H4196 on every altar.
15 H559 And he said H1111 unto Balak, H3320 Stand H3541 here H5930 by thy burnt-offering, H7136 while I meet H3541 Jehovah yonder.
16 H3068 And Jehovah H7136 met H1109 Balaam, H7760 and put H1697 a word H6310 in his mouth, H559 and said, H7725 Return H1111 unto Balak, H1696 and thus shalt thou speak.
17 H935 And he came H5324 to him, and, lo, he was standing H5930 by his burnt-offering, H8269 and the princes H4124 of Moab H1111 with him. And Balak H559 said H3068 unto him, What hath Jehovah H1696 spoken?
18 H5375 And he took up H4912 his parable, H559 and said, H6965 Rise up, H1111 Balak, H8085 and hear; H238 Hearken H1121 unto me, thou son H6834 of Zippor:
19 H410 God H376 is not a man, H3576 that he should lie, H1121 Neither the son H120 of man, H5162 that he should repent: H559 Hath he said, H6213 and will he not do H1696 it? Or hath he spoken, H6965 and will he not make it good?
20 H3947 Behold, I have received H1288 commandment to bless: H1288 And he hath blessed, H7725 and I cannot reverse it.
21 H5027 He hath not beheld H205 iniquity H3290 in Jacob; H7200 Neither hath he seen H5999 perverseness H3478 in Israel: H3068 Jehovah H430 his God H8643 is with him, And the shout H4428 of a king is among them.
22 H410 God H3318 bringeth them forth H4714 out of Egypt; H8443 He hath as it were the strength H7214 of the wild-ox.
23 H5173 Surely there is no enchantment H3290 with Jacob; H7081 Neither is there any divination H3478 with Israel: H6256 Now H559 shalt it be said H3290 of Jacob H3478 and of Israel, H410 What hath God H6466 wrought!
24 H5971 Behold, the people H6965 riseth up H3833 as a lioness, H3833 And as a lion H5375 doth he lift himself up: H7901 He shall not lie down H398 until he eat H2964 of the prey, H8354 And drink H1818 the blood H2491 of the slain.
25 H1111 And Balak H559 said H1109 unto Balaam, H5344 Neither curse H6895 them at all, H1288 nor bless H1288 them at all.
26 H1109 But Balaam H6030 answered H559 and said H1111 unto Balak, H1696 Told H559 not I thee, saying, H3068 All that Jehovah H1696 speaketh, H6213 that I must do?
27 H1111 And Balak H559 said H1109 unto Balaam, H3212 Come H3947 now, I will take H312 thee unto another H4725 place; H3474 peradventure it will please H430 God H6895 that thou mayest curse me them from thence.
28 H1111 And Balak H3947 took H1109 Balaam H7218 unto the top H6465 of Peor, H8259 that looketh H6440 down H3452 upon the desert.
29 H1109 And Balaam H559 said H1111 unto Balak, H1129 Build H7651 me here seven H4196 altars, H3559 and prepare H7651 me here seven H6499 bullocks H7651 and seven H352 rams.
