Bible: Num 22:4-6

22:4 So the Moabites said to the elders of Midian, “Now this mass of people 1  will lick up everything around us, as the bull devours the grass of the field. Now Balak son of Zippor was king of the Moabites at this time. 22:5 And he sent messengers to Balaam 2  son of Beor at Pethor, which is by the Euphrates River 3  in the land of Amaw, 4  to summon him, saying, “Look, a nation has come out of Egypt. They cover the face 5  of the earth, and they are settling next to me. 22:6 So 6  now, please come and curse this nation 7  for me, for they are too powerful for me. Perhaps I will prevail so that we may conquer them 8  and drive them out of the land. For I know that whoever you bless is blessed, 9  and whoever you curse is cursed.”
