Bible: Numbers 22:5-6

22:5 And he sent messengers to Balaam 1  son of Beor at Pethor, which is by the Euphrates River 2  in the land of Amaw, 3  to summon him, saying, “Look, a nation has come out of Egypt. They cover the face 4  of the earth, and they are settling next to me. 22:6 So 5  now, please come and curse this nation 6  for me, for they are too powerful for me. Perhaps I will prevail so that we may conquer them 7  and drive them out of the land. For I know that whoever you bless is blessed, 8  and whoever you curse is cursed.”
