Unchecked Copy BoxNum 22:6 - “Now, therefore, please come, curse this people for me since they are too [fn]mighty for me; perhaps I may be able to [fn]defeat them and drive them out of the land. For I know that he whom you bless is blessed, and he whom you curse is cursed.”

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 22:7 - So the elders of Moab and the elders of Midian departed with the fees for divination in their hand; and they came to Balaam and [fn]repeated Balak’s words to him.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 22:8 - He said to them, “Spend the night here, and I will bring word back to you as the LORD may speak to me.” And the leaders of Moab stayed with Balaam.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 22:10 - Balaam said to God, “Balak the son of Zippor, king of Moab, has sent word to me,

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 22:18 - Balaam replied to the servants of Balak, “Though Balak were to give me his house full of silver and gold, I could not do anything, either small or great, contrary to the [fn]command of the LORD my God.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 22:25 - When the donkey saw the angel of the LORD, she pressed herself to the wall and pressed Balaam’s foot against the wall, so he struck her again.
