Chapter 22

  1. 1. And the children
    H1121
    of Israel
    H3478
    set forward,
    H5265
    and pitched
    H2583
    in the plains
    H6160
    of Moab
    H4124
    on this side
    H5676
    Jordan
    H3383
    by Jericho.
    H3405
  2. 2. And Balak
    H1111
    the son
    H1121
    of Zippor
    H6834
    saw
    H7200
    all that Israel
    H3478
    had done
    H6213
    to the Amorites.
    H567
  3. 3. And Moab
    H4124
    was sore
    H3966
    afraid
    H1481
    of
    H6440
    the people,
    H5971
    because they were many:
    H7227
    and Moab
    H4124
    was distressed
    H6973
    because of
    H6440
    the children
    H1121
    of Israel.
    H3478
  4. 4. And Moab
    H4124
    said
    H559
    unto the elders
    H2205
    of Midian,
    H4080
    Now shall this company
    H6951
    lick up
    H3897
    all that are round about
    H5439
    us, as the ox
    H7794
    licketh up
    H3897
    the grass
    H3418
    of the field.
    H7704
    And Balak
    H1111
    the son
    H1121
    of Zippor
    H6834
    was king
    H4428
    of the Moabites
    H4124
    at that time.
    H6256
  5. 5. He sent
    H7971
    messengers
    H4397
    therefore unto Balaam
    H1109
    the son
    H1121
    of Beor
    H1160
    to Pethor,
    H6604
    which is by the river
    H5104
    of the land
    H776
    of the children
    H1121
    of his people,
    H5971
    to call
    H7121
    him, saying,
    H559
    Behold, there is a people
    H5971
    come out
    H3318
    from Egypt:
    H4714
    behold, they cover
    H3680
    the face
    H5869
    of the earth,
    H776
    and they abide
    H3427
    over against
    H4136
    me:
  6. 6. Come
    H3212
    now therefore, I pray thee, curse
    H779
    me this people;
    H5971
    for they are too mighty
    H6099
    for me: peradventure I shall prevail,
    H3201
    that we may smite
    H5221
    them, and that I may drive them out
    H1644
    of the land:
    H776
    for I wot
    H3045
    that he whom thou blessest
    H1288
    is blessed,
    H1288
    and he whom thou cursest
    H779
    is cursed.
    H779
  7. 7. And the elders
    H2205
    of Moab
    H4124
    and the elders
    H2205
    of Midian
    H4080
    departed
    H3212
    with the rewards of divination
    H7081
    in their hand;
    H3027
    and they came
    H935
    unto Balaam,
    H1109
    and spake
    H1696
    unto him the words
    H1697
    of Balak.
    H1111
  8. 8. And he said
    H559
    unto them, Lodge
    H3885
    here this night,
    H3915
    and I will bring
    H7725
    you word
    H1697
    again,
    H7725
    as the LORD
    H3068
    shall speak
    H1696
    unto me: and the princes
    H8269
    of Moab
    H4124
    abode
    H3427
    with Balaam.
    H1109
  9. 9. And God
    H430
    came
    H935
    unto Balaam,
    H1109
    and said,
    H559
    What men
    H582
    are these with thee?
  10. 10. And Balaam
    H1109
    said
    H559
    unto God,
    H430
    Balak
    H1111
    the son
    H1121
    of Zippor,
    H6834
    king
    H4428
    of Moab,
    H4124
    hath sent
    H7971
    unto me, saying,
  11. 11. Behold, there is a people
    H5971
    come out
    H3318
    of Egypt,
    H4714
    which covereth
    H3680
    the face
    H5869
    of the earth:
    H776
    come
    H3212
    now, curse
    H6895
    me them; peradventure I shall be able
    H3201
    to overcome
    H3898
    them, and drive them out.
    H1644
  12. 12. And God
    H430
    said
    H559
    unto Balaam,
    H1109
    Thou shalt not go
    H3212
    with them; thou shalt not curse
    H779
    the people:
    H5971
    for they are blessed.
    H1288
  13. 13. And Balaam
    H1109
    rose up
    H6965
    in the morning,
    H1242
    and said
    H559
    unto the princes
    H8269
    of Balak,
    H1111
    Get
    H3212
    you into your land:
    H776
    for the LORD
    H3068
    refuseth
    H3985
    to give me leave
    H5414
    to go
    H1980
    with you.
  14. 14. And the princes
    H8269
    of Moab
    H4124
    rose up,
    H6965
    and they went
    H935
    unto Balak,
    H1111
    and said,
    H559
    Balaam
    H1109
    refuseth
    H3985
    to come
    H1980
    with us.
  15. 15. And Balak
    H1111
    sent
    H7971
    yet again
    H3254
    princes,
    H8269
    more,
    H7227
    and more honourable
    H3513
    than they.
  16. 16. And they came
    H935
    to Balaam,
    H1109
    and said
    H559
    to him, Thus saith
    H559
    Balak
    H1111
    the son
    H1121
    of Zippor,
    H6834
    Let nothing, I pray thee, hinder
    H4513
    thee from coming
    H1980
    unto me:
  17. 17. For I will promote
    H3513
    thee unto very
    H3966
    great
    H3513
    honour,
    H3513
    and I will do
    H6213
    whatsoever thou sayest
    H559
    unto me: come
    H3212
    therefore, I pray thee, curse
    H6895
    me this people.
    H5971
  18. 18. And Balaam
    H1109
    answered
    H6030
    and said
    H559
    unto the servants
    H5650
    of Balak,
    H1111
    If Balak
    H1111
    would give
    H5414
    me his house
    H1004
    full
    H4393
    of silver
    H3701
    and gold,
    H2091
    I cannot
    H3201
    go beyond
    H5674
    the word
    H6310
    of the LORD
    H3068
    my God,
    H430
    to do
    H6213
    less
    H6996
    or more.
    H1419
  19. 19. Now therefore, I pray you, tarry
    H3427
    ye also here this night,
    H3915
    that I may know
    H3045
    what the LORD
    H3068
    will say
    H1696
    unto me more.
    H3254
  20. 20. And God
    H430
    came
    H935
    unto Balaam
    H1109
    at night,
    H3915
    and said
    H559
    unto him, If the men
    H582
    come
    H935
    to call
    H7121
    thee, rise up,
    H6965
    and go
    H3212
    with them; but yet
    H389
    the word
    H1697
    which I shall say
    H1696
    unto thee, that shalt thou do.
    H6213
  21. 21. And Balaam
    H1109
    rose up
    H6965
    in the morning,
    H1242
    and saddled
    H2280
    his ass,
    H860
    and went
    H3212
    with the princes
    H8269
    of Moab.
    H4124
  22. 22. And God's
    H430
    anger
    H639
    was kindled
    H2734
    because he went:
    H1980
    and the angel
    H4397
    of the LORD
    H3068
    stood
    H3320
    in the way
    H1870
    for an adversary
    H7854
    against him. Now he was riding
    H7392
    upon his ass,
    H860
    and his two
    H8147
    servants
    H5288
    were with him.
  23. 23. And the ass
    H860
    saw
    H7200
    the angel
    H4397
    of the LORD
    H3068
    standing
    H5324
    in the way,
    H1870
    and his sword
    H2719
    drawn
    H8025
    in his hand:
    H3027
    and the ass
    H860
    turned aside
    H5186
    out of the way,
    H1870
    and went
    H3212
    into the field:
    H7704
    and Balaam
    H1109
    smote
    H5221
    the ass,
    H860
    to turn
    H5186
    her into the way.
    H1870
  24. 24. But the angel
    H4397
    of the LORD
    H3068
    stood
    H5975
    in a path
    H4934
    of the vineyards,
    H3754
    a wall
    H1447
    being on this side, and a wall
    H1447
    on that side.
  25. 25. And when the ass
    H860
    saw
    H7200
    the angel
    H4397
    of the LORD,
    H3068
    she thrust
    H3905
    herself unto the wall,
    H7023
    and crushed
    H3905
    Balaam's
    H1109
    foot
    H7272
    against the wall:
    H7023
    and he smote
    H5221
    her again.
    H3254
  26. 26. And the angel
    H4397
    of the LORD
    H3068
    went
    H5674
    further,
    H3254
    and stood
    H5975
    in a narrow
    H6862
    place,
    H4725
    where was no way
    H1870
    to turn
    H5186
    either to the right hand
    H3225
    or to the left.
    H8040
  27. 27. And when the ass
    H860
    saw
    H7200
    the angel
    H4397
    of the LORD,
    H3068
    she fell down
    H7257
    under Balaam:
    H1109
    and Balaam's
    H1109
    anger
    H639
    was kindled,
    H2734
    and he smote
    H5221
    the ass
    H860
    with a staff.
    H4731
  28. 28. And the LORD
    H3068
    opened
    H6605
    the mouth
    H6310
    of the ass,
    H860
    and she said
    H559
    unto Balaam,
    H1109
    What have I done
    H6213
    unto thee, that thou hast smitten
    H5221
    me these three
    H7969
    times?
    H7272
  29. 29. And Balaam
    H1109
    said
    H559
    unto the ass,
    H860
    Because thou hast mocked
    H5953
    me: I would
    H3863
    there were
    H3426
    a sword
    H2719
    in mine hand,
    H3027
    for now would I kill
    H2026
    thee.
  30. 30. And the ass
    H860
    said
    H559
    unto Balaam,
    H1109
    Am not I thine ass,
    H860
    upon which thou hast ridden
    H7392
    ever since I was thine unto this day?
    H3117
    was I ever
    H5532
    wont
    H5532
    to do so
    H6213
    unto thee? And he said,
    H559
    Nay.
  31. 31. Then the LORD
    H3068
    opened
    H1540
    the eyes
    H5869
    of Balaam,
    H1109
    and he saw
    H7200
    the angel
    H4397
    of the LORD
    H3068
    standing
    H5324
    in the way,
    H1870
    and his sword
    H2719
    drawn
    H8025
    in his hand:
    H3027
    and he bowed down
    H6915
    his head, and fell flat
    H7812
    on his face.
    H639
  32. 32. And the angel
    H4397
    of the LORD
    H3068
    said
    H559
    unto him, Wherefore hast thou smitten
    H5221
    thine ass
    H860
    these three
    H7969
    times?
    H7272
    behold, I went out
    H3318
    to withstand
    H7854
    thee, because thy way
    H1870
    is perverse
    H3399
    before me:
  33. 33. And the ass
    H860
    saw
    H7200
    me, and turned
    H5186
    from me
    H6440
    these three
    H7969
    times:
    H7272
    unless
    H194
    she had turned
    H5186
    from me,
    H6440
    surely now also I had slain
    H2026
    thee, and saved her alive.
    H2421
  34. 34. And Balaam
    H1109
    said
    H559
    unto the angel
    H4397
    of the LORD,
    H3068
    I have sinned;
    H2398
    for I knew
    H3045
    not that thou stoodest
    H5324
    in the way
    H1870
    against
    H7125
    me: now therefore, if it displease thee,
    H7489
    H5869
    I will get me back again.
    H7725
  35. 35. And the angel
    H4397
    of the LORD
    H3068
    said
    H559
    unto Balaam,
    H1109
    Go
    H3212
    with the men:
    H582
    but only
    H657
    the word
    H1697
    that I shall speak
    H1696
    unto thee, that thou shalt speak.
    H1696
    So Balaam
    H1109
    went
    H3212
    with the princes
    H8269
    of Balak.
    H1111
  36. 36. And when Balak
    H1111
    heard
    H8085
    that Balaam
    H1109
    was come,
    H935
    he went out
    H3318
    to meet
    H7125
    him unto a city
    H5892
    of Moab,
    H4124
    which is in the border
    H1366
    of Arnon,
    H769
    which is in the utmost
    H7097
    coast.
    H1366
  37. 37. And Balak
    H1111
    said
    H559
    unto Balaam,
    H1109
    Did I not earnestly
    H7971
    send
    H7971
    unto thee to call
    H7121
    thee? wherefore camest
    H1980
    thou not unto me? am I not able
    H3201
    indeed
    H552
    to promote thee to honour?
    H3513
  38. 38. And Balaam
    H1109
    said
    H559
    unto Balak,
    H1111
    Lo, I am come
    H935
    unto thee: have I now any power
    H3201
    at all
    H3201
    to say
    H1696
    any thing?
    H3972
    the word
    H1697
    that God
    H430
    putteth
    H7760
    in my mouth,
    H6310
    that shall I speak.
    H1696
  39. 39. And Balaam
    H1109
    went
    H3212
    with Balak,
    H1111
    and they came
    H935
    unto Kirjathhuzoth.
    H7155
    H2351
  40. 40. And Balak
    H1111
    offered
    H2076
    oxen
    H1241
    and sheep,
    H6629
