Bible: Numbers 24:20-25

Balaam’s Final Prophecies

24:20 Then Balaam 1  looked on Amalek and delivered this oracle: 2 

“Amalek was the first 3  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 4  is set on a rocky cliff.

24:22 Nevertheless the Kenite will be consumed. 5 

How long will Asshur take you away captive?

24:23 Then he uttered this oracle:

“O, who will survive when God does this! 6 

24:24 Ships will come from the coast of Kittim, 7 

and will afflict Asshur, 8  and will afflict Eber,

and he will also perish forever.” 9 

24:25 Balaam got up and departed and returned to his home, 10  and Balak also went his way.
