Unchecked Copy BoxNum 22:6 - “Therefore please come at once, curse this people for me, for they are too mighty for me. Perhaps I shall be able to 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 diviner’s fee in their hand, and they came to Balaam and spoke to him the words of Balak.

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

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 22:11 - ‘Look, a people has come out of Egypt, and they cover the face of the earth. Come now, curse them for me; perhaps I shall be able to overpower them and drive them out.’ ”

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 22:12 - And God said to Balaam, “You shall not go with them; you shall not curse the people, for they are blessed.”

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 22:13 - So Balaam rose in the morning and said to the princes of Balak, “Go back to your land, for the LORD has refused to give me permission to go with you.”

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 22:17 - ‘for I will certainly honor you greatly, and I will do whatever you say to me. Therefore please come, curse this people for me.’ ”

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 22:18 - Then Balaam answered and said to the servants of Balak, “Though Balak were to give me his house full of silver and gold, I could not go beyond the word of the LORD my God, to do less or more.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 22:23 - Now the donkey saw the Angel of the LORD standing in the way with His drawn sword in His hand, and the donkey turned aside out of the way and went into the field. So Balaam struck the donkey to turn her back onto the road.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 22:24 - Then the Angel of the LORD stood in a narrow path between the vineyards, with a wall on this side and a wall on that side.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 22:25 - And when the donkey saw the Angel of the LORD, she pushed herself against the wall and crushed Balaam’s foot against the wall; so he struck her again.
