Numbers 24:15–19

Balaam’s Fourth Prophecy

15 So he took up his oracle and said:

“The utterance of Balaam the son of Beor,

And the utterance of the man whose eyes are opened;

16 The utterance of him who hears the words of God,

And has the knowledge of the Most High,

Who sees the vision of the Almighty,

Who falls down, with eyes wide open:

17 “I vsee Him, but not now;

I behold Him, but not near;

wA Star shall come out of Jacob;

xA Scepter shall rise out of Israel,

And 2batter the brow of Moab,

And destroy all the sons of 3tumult.

18 “And yEdom shall be a possession;

Seir also, his enemies, shall be a possession,

While Israel does 4valiantly.

19 zOut of Jacob One 5shall have dominion,

And destroy the remains of the city.”
