Bible: Num 24:15-25
Balaam Prophesies a Fourth Time
24:15 Then he uttered this oracle: 1
“The oracle of Balaam son of Beor;
the oracle of the man whose eyes are open;
24:16 the oracle of the one who hears the words of God,
and who knows the knowledge of the Most High,
who sees a vision from the Almighty,
although falling flat on the ground with eyes open:
24:17 ‘I see him, but not now;
I behold him, but not close at hand. 2
and a scepter 5 will rise out of Israel.
He will crush the skulls 6 of Moab,
24:18 Edom will be a possession,
Seir, 9 his enemies, will also be a possession;
but Israel will act valiantly.
24:19 A ruler will be established from Jacob;
he will destroy the remains of the city.’” 10
Balaam’s Final Prophecies
“Amalek was the first 13 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 nest 14 is set on a rocky cliff.
24:22 Nevertheless the Kenite will be consumed. 15
How long will Asshur take you away captive?”
24:23 Then he uttered this oracle:
“O, who will survive when God does this! 16
24:24 Ships will come from the coast of Kittim, 17
and will afflict Asshur, 18 and will afflict Eber,
and he will also perish forever.” 19
24:25 Balaam got up and departed and returned to his home, 20 and Balak also went his way.
