22:36 When Balak heard that Balaam was coming, he went out to meet him at a city of Moab which was on the border of the Arnon at the boundary of his territory. 22:37 Balak said to Balaam, “Did I not send again and again51 to you to summon you? Why did you not come to me? Am I not able to honor you?”52 22:38 Balaam said to Balak, “Look, I have come to you. Now, am I able53 to speak54 just anything? I must speak55 only the word that God puts in my mouth.” 22:39 So Balaam went with Balak, and they came to Kiriath-huzoth. 22:40 And Balak sacrificed bulls and sheep, and sent some56 to Balaam, and to the princes who were with him. 22:41 Then on the next morning Balak took Balaam, and brought him up to Bamoth Baal.57 From there he saw the extent of the nation.
