1 H1109 And Balaam H559 [H8799] said H1111 to Balak H1129 [H8798] , Build H7651 me here seven H4196 altars H3559 [H8685] , and prepare H7651 me here seven H6499 oxen H7651 and seven H352 rams.
2 H1111 And Balak H6213 [H8799] did H1109 as Balaam H1696 [H8765] had spoken H1111 ; and Balak H1109 and Balaam H5927 [H8686] offered H4196 on every altar H6499 a bull H352 and a ram.
3 H1109 And Balaam H559 [H8799] said H1111 to Balak H3320 [H8690] , Stand H5930 by thy burnt offering H3212 [H8799] , and I will go H3068 : perhaps the LORD H7136 [H8735] will come H7125 [H8800] to meet H1697 me: and whatever H7200 [H8686] he showeth H5046 [H8689] me I will tell H3212 [H8799] thee. And he went H8205 to an high place.
4 H430 And God H7136 [H8735] met H1109 Balaam H559 [H8799] : and he said H6186 [H8804] to him, I have prepared H7651 seven H4196 altars H5927 [H8686] , and I have offered H4196 upon every altar H6499 a bull H352 and a ram.
5 H3068 And the LORD H7760 [H8799] put H1697 a word H1109 in Balaam's H6310 mouth H559 [H8799] , and said H7725 [H8798] , Return H1111 to Balak H1696 [H8762] , and thus thou shalt speak.
6 H7725 [H8799] And he returned H5324 [H8737] to him, and, lo, he stood H5930 by his burnt sacrifice H8269 , he, and all the princes H4124 of Moab.
7 H5375 [H8799] And he took up H4912 his parable H559 [H8799] , and said H1111 , Balak H4428 the king H4124 of Moab H5148 [H8686] hath brought H758 me from Aram H2042 , out of the mountains H6924 of the east H3212 [H8798] , saying, Come H779 [H8798] , curse H3290 Jacob H3212 [H8798] for me, and come H2194 [H8798] , defy H3478 Israel.
8 H4100 How H5344 [H8799] shall I curse H410 , whom God H6895 [H8804] hath not cursed H2194 [H8799] ? or how shall I defy H3068 , whom the LORD H2194 [H8804] hath not defied?
9 H7218 For from the top H6697 of the rocks H7200 [H8799] I see H1389 him, and from the hills H7789 [H8799] I behold H5971 him: lo, the people H7931 [H8799] shall dwell H910 alone H2803 [H8691] , and shall not be reckoned H1471 among the nations.
10 H4487 [H8804] Who can count H6083 the dust H3290 of Jacob H4557 , and the number H7255 of the fourth H3478 part of Israel H4191 H5315 [H8799] ? Let me die H4194 the death H3477 of the righteous H319 , and let my last end be like his!
11 H1111 And Balak H559 [H8799] said H1109 to Balaam H6213 [H8804] , What hast thou done H3947 [H8804] to me? I took H6895 [H8800] thee to curse H341 [H8802] my enemies H1288 [H8765] , and, behold, thou hast blessed H1288 [H8763] them altogether.
12 H6030 [H8799] And he answered H559 [H8799] and said H8104 [H8799] , Must I not take heed H1696 [H8763] to speak H3068 that which the LORD H7760 [H8799] hath put H6310 in my mouth?
13 H1111 And Balak H559 [H8799] said H3212 [H8798] to him, Come H312 , I pray thee, with me to another H4725 place H7200 [H8799] , from which thou mayest see H7200 [H8799] them: thou shalt see H657 but H7097 the utmost H7200 [H8799] part of them, and shalt not see H6895 [H8798] them all: and from there curse them for me.
14 H3947 [H8799] And he brought H7704 him into the field H6839 H6822 [H8677] of Zophim H7218 , to the top H6449 of Pisgah H1129 [H8799] , and built H7651 seven H4196 altars H5927 [H8686] , and offered H6499 a bull H352 and a ram H4196 on every altar.
15 H559 [H8799] And he said H1111 to Balak H3320 [H8690] , Stand H3541 here H5930 by thy burnt offering H7136 [H8735] , while I meet H3541 the LORD yonder.
16 H3068 And the LORD H7136 [H8735] met H1109 Balaam H7760 [H8799] , and put H1697 a word H6310 in his mouth H559 [H8799] , and said H7725 [H8798] , Go again H1111 to Balak H1696 [H8762] , and say thus.
17 H935 [H8799] And when he came H5324 [H8737] to him, behold, he stood H5930 by his burnt offering H8269 , and the princes H4124 of Moab H1111 with him. And Balak H559 [H8799] said H3068 to him, What hath the LORD H1696 [H8765] spoken?
18 H5375 [H8799] And he took up H4912 his parable H559 [H8799] , and said H6965 [H8798] , Rise H1111 , Balak H8085 [H8798] , and hear H238 [H8685] ; hearken H1121 to me, thou son H6834 of Zippor:
19 H410 God H376 is not a man H3576 [H8762] , that he should lie H1121 ; neither the son H120 of man H5162 [H8691] , that he should repent H559 [H8804] : hath he said H6213 [H8799] , and shall he not do H1696 [H8765] it? or hath he spoken H6965 [H8686] , and shall he not make it good?
20 H3947 [H8804] Behold, I have received H1288 [H8763] commandment to bless H1288 [H8765] : and he hath blessed H7725 [H8686] ; and I cannot reverse it.
21 H5027 [H8689] He hath not beheld H205 iniquity H3290 in Jacob H7200 [H8804] , neither hath he seen H5999 perverseness H3478 in Israel H3068 : the LORD H430 his God H8643 is with him, and the shout H4428 of a king is among them.
22 H410 God H3318 [H8688] brought them out H4714 of Egypt H8443 ; he hath as it were the strength H7214 of an unicorn.
23 H5173 Surely there is no enchantment H3290 against Jacob H7081 , neither is there any divination H3478 against Israel H6256 : according to this time H559 [H8735] it shall be said H3290 of Jacob H3478 and of Israel H410 , What hath God H6466 [H8804] wrought!
24 H5971 Behold, the people H6965 [H8799] shall rise up H3833 as a great lion H5375 [H8691] , and lift up H738 himself as a young lion H7901 [H8799] : he shall not lie down H398 [H8799] until he shall eat H2964 of the prey H8354 [H8799] , and drink H1818 the blood H2491 of the slain.
25 H1111 And Balak H559 [H8799] said H1109 to Balaam H5344 [H8799] , Neither curse H6895 [H8800] them at all H1288 [H8762] , nor bless H1288 [H8763] them at all.
26 H1109 But Balaam H6030 [H8799] answered H559 [H8799] and said H1111 to Balak H1696 [H8765] , Did I not tell H559 [H8800] thee, saying H3068 , All that the LORD H1696 [H8762] speaketh H6213 [H8799] , that I must do?
27 H1111 And Balak H559 [H8799] said H1109 to Balaam H3212 [H8798] , Come H3947 [H8799] , I pray thee, I will bring H312 thee to another H4725 place H3474 H5869 [H8799] ; perhaps it will please H430 God H6895 [H8804] that thou mayest from there curse them for me.
28 H1111 And Balak H3947 [H8799] brought H1109 Balaam H7218 to the top H6465 of Peor H8259 [H8737] , that looketh H6440 toward H3452 Jeshimon.
29 H1109 And Balaam H559 [H8799] said H1111 to Balak H1129 [H8798] , Build H7651 me here seven H4196 altars H3559 [H8685] , and prepare H7651 me here seven H6499 bulls H7651 and seven H352 rams.
