Balaam Accompanies the Moabite Princes
22:15 Balak again sent princes,24 more numerous and more distinguished than the first.25 22:16 And they came to Balaam and said to him, “Thus says Balak son of Zippor: ‘Please do not let anything hinder you from coming26 to me. 22:17 For I will honor you greatly,27 and whatever you tell me I will do. So come, put a curse on this nation for me.’ ”
22:18 Balaam replied28 to the servants of Balak, “Even if Balak would give me his palace full of silver and gold, I could not transgress the commandment29 of the Lord my God30 to do less or more. 22:19 Now therefore, please stay31 the night here also, that I may know what more the Lord might say to me.”32 22:20 God came to Balaam that night, and said to him, “If the men have come to call you, get up and go with them; but the word that I will say to you, that you must do.” 22:21 So Balaam got up in the morning, saddled his donkey, and went with the princes of Moab.
