Bible: Num 23:7-10

23:7 Then Balaam 1  uttered 2  his oracle, saying,

Balak, the king of Moab, brought me 3  from Aram,

out of the mountains of the east, saying,

‘Come, pronounce a curse on Jacob for me;

come, denounce Israel.’ 4 

23:8 How 5  can I curse 6  one whom God has not cursed,

or how can I denounce one whom the Lord has not denounced?

23:9 For from the top of the rocks I see them; 7 

from the hills I watch them. 8 

Indeed, a nation that lives alone,

and it will not be reckoned 9  among the nations.

23:10 Who 10  can count 11  the dust 12  of Jacob,

Or number 13  the fourth part of Israel?

Let me 14  die the death of the upright, 15 

and let the end of my life 16  be like theirs.” 17
