24:20 Then Balaam40 looked on Amalek and delivered this oracle:41
“Amalek was the first42 of the nations,
but his end will be that he will perish.”
24:21 Then he looked on the Kenites and uttered this oracle:
“Your dwelling place seems strong,
and your nest43 is set on a rocky cliff.
24:22 Nevertheless the Kenite will be consumed.44
How long will Asshur take you away captive?”
24:23 Then he uttered this oracle:
“O, who will survive when God does this!45
24:24 Ships will come from the coast of Kittim,46
and will afflict Asshur,47 and will afflict Eber,
and he will also perish forever.”48
24:25 Balaam got up and departed and returned to his home,49 and Balak also went his way.
