The Prophecy from Peor1When Balaam saw that it ▼
▼ Lit was good in the eyes ofpleased the Lord to bless Israel, he did not go as at other times to ▼
▼ Lit encounterseek c omens but he set his face toward the d wilderness. 2And Balaam lifted up his eyes and saw Israel ▼
▼ Lit dwellingcamping tribe by tribe; and f the Spirit of God came upon him. 3He took up his ▼
▼ Lit parable, and so throughout the chdiscourse and said, h “The oracle of Balaam the son of Beor,
And the oracle of the man whose eye is opened;
4The oracle of him who i hears the ▼
▼ Lit sayingswords of God,
Who sees the k vision of ▼
▼ Heb Shaddaithe Almighty,
Falling down, yet having his eyes uncovered,
5How fair are your tents, O Jacob,
Your dwellings, O Israel!
▼ Or possibly palm treesvalleys that stretch out,
Like gardens beside the river,
Like n aloes planted by the Lord,
Like o cedars beside the waters.
7“Water will flow from his buckets,
And his seed will be by many waters,
And his king shall be higher than p Agag,
q And his kingdom shall be exalted.
8 r “God brings him out of Egypt,
He is for him like the horns of the wild ox.
s He will devour the nations who are his adversaries,
And will crush their bones in pieces,
And shatter them with his t arrows.
9 u “He ▼
▼ Lit bows downcouches, he lies down as a lion,
And as a ▼
▼ Or lionesslion, who ▼
▼ Lit shalldares rouse him?
y Blessed is everyone who blesses you,
And cursed is everyone who curses you.”
10Then Balak’s anger burned against Balaam, and he struck his ▼
▼ Lit palmshands together; and Balak said to Balaam, “I called you to curse my enemies, but behold, you have persisted in blessing them these three times! 11“Therefore, ▼
▼ Lit flee for yourselfflee to your place now. I said I would honor you greatly, but behold, the Lord has held you back from honor.” 12Balaam said to Balak ab “Did I not tell your messengers whom you had sent to me, saying, 13‘Though Balak were to give me his house full of silver and gold, I could not do anything contrary to the ▼
▼ Lit mouthcommand of the Lord, either good or bad, ad of my own ▼
▼ Lit heartaccord. af What the Lord speaks, that I will speak’? 14“And now, behold, ag I am going to my people; come, and I will advise you what this people will do to your people in the ▼
▼ Lit end of the daysdays to come.” 15He took up his discourse and said, ai “The oracle of Balaam the son of Beor,
And the oracle of the man whose eye is opened,
16The oracle of him who hears the ▼
▼ Lit sayingswords of God,
And knows the knowledge of the ▼
▼ Heb ElyonMost High,
Who sees the vision of ▼
▼ Heb Shaddaithe Almighty,
Falling down, yet having his eyes uncovered.
17“I see him, but not now;
I behold him, but not near;
A star shall come forth from Jacob,
am A scepter shall rise from Israel,
an And shall crush through the ▼
▼ Lit cornersforehead of Moab,
▼ Another reading is the crown of the head oftear down all the sons of ▼
▼ I.e. tumultSheth.
18 ar “Edom shall be a possession,
as Seir, its enemies, also will be a possession,
While Israel performs valiantly.
19“One from Jacob shall have dominion,
And will destroy the remnant from the city.”
20And he looked at Amalek and took up his discourse and said, “Amalek was the first of the nations,
at But his end shall be ▼
▼ Lit to destroyingdestruction.”
21And he looked at the av Kenite, and took up his discourse and said, “Your dwelling place is enduring,
And your nest is set in the cliff.
22“Nevertheless Kain will be consumed;
How long will aw Asshur ▼
▼ Lit takekeep you captive?”
23Then he took up his discourse and said, “Alas, who can live except God has ordained it?
24“But ships shall come from the coast of ay Kittim,
And they shall afflict Asshur and will afflict az Eber;
ba So they also will come to destruction.”
25Then Balaam arose and departed and returned to bb his place, and Balak also went his way.
