Numbers 22:5-6

5 asent messengers to Balaam the son of Beor bat Pethor, which is near the River in the land of the people of Amaw
Or  the people of his kindred
to call him, saying, “Behold, a people has come out of Egypt. They cover the face of the earth, and they are dwelling opposite me.
6 dCome now, curse this people for me, since they are too mighty for me. Perhaps I shall be able to defeat them and drive them from the land, for I know that he whom you bless is blessed, and he whom you curse is cursed.”
