Bible: Num 22:15-21

Balaam Accompanies the Moabite Princes

22:15 Balak again sent princes, 1  more numerous and more distinguished than the first. 2  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 coming 3  to me. 22:17 For I will honor you greatly, 4  and whatever you tell me I will do. So come, put a curse on this nation for me.’

22:18 Balaam replied 5  to the servants of Balak, “Even if Balak would give me his palace full of silver and gold, I could not transgress the commandment 6  of the Lord my God 7  to do less or more. 22:19 Now therefore, please stay 8  the night here also, that I may know what more the Lord might say to me.” 9  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.
