Numbers 23
NMV
23
1And Bil’am [Not of the People] said unto Balak [Devastator], Build me here seven altars, and prepare me here seven oxen and seven rams.
2And Balak [Devastator] did as Bil’am [Not of the People] had spoken; and Balak [Devastator] and Bil’am [Not of the People] offered on [every] altar a bullock and a ram.
3And Bil’am [Not of the People] said unto Balak [Devastator], Stand by youi burnt offering, and I will go: perhaps the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) will come to meet me: and whatsoever he shows me I will tell youi. And he went to an high place.
4And God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered] met Bil’am [Not of the People]: and he said unto him, I have prepared seven altars, and I have offered upon [every] altar a bullock and a ram.
5And the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) put a word in Bil’am [Not of the People]’s mouth, and said, Return unto Balak [Devastator], and thus youi shall speak.
6And he returned unto him, and, lo, he stood by his burnt sacrifice, he, and all the princes of Mo’av [Seed of my Father].
7And he took up his parable, and said, Balak [Devastator] the king of Mo’av [Seed of my Father] has brought me from Aram, out of the mountains of the east, [saying], Come, curse me Ya’akov [Heal of God], and come, defy Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God].
8How shall I curse, whom God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered] has not cursed? or how shall I defy, [whom] the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) has not defied?
9For from the top of the rocks I see him, and from the hills I behold him: lo, the people shall dwell alone, and shall not be reckoned among the nations.
10Who can count the dust of Ya’akov [Heal of God], and the number of the fourth [part] of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God]? Let me die the death of the righteous, and let my last end be like his!
11And Balak [Devastator] said unto Bil’am [Not of the People], What have youi done unto me? I took youi to curse my enemies, and, behold, youi have Blessed (Favored by God; happy; prosperous) [them] altogether.
12And he answered and said, Must I not take heed to speak that which the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) has put in my mouth?
13And Balak [Devastator] said unto him, Come, I pray youi, with me unto another place, from what place youi may see them: youi shall see but the utmost part of them, and shall not see them all: and curse me them from there.
14And he brought him into the field of Tzofim [Watchers], to the top of Pisgah [Cleft (split hoof; an opening, break or split) Mountain Range], and built seven altars, and offered a bullock and a ram on [every] altar.
15And he said unto Balak [Devastator], Stand here by youi burnt offering, while I meet [the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate)] yonder.
16And the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) met Bil’am [Not of the People], and put a word in his mouth, and said, Go again unto Balak [Devastator], and say thus.
17And when he came to him, behold, he stood by his burnt offering, and the princes of Mo’av [Seed of my Father] with him. And Balak [Devastator] said unto him, What has the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) spoken?
18And he took up his parable, and said, Rise up, Balak [Devastator], and hear; hearken unto me, youi son of Zippor [Sparrow]:
19God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered] [is] not a man, that he should lie; neither the Son of man, that he should repent: has he said, and shall he not do [it]? or has he spoken, and shall he not make it good?
20Behold, I have received [commandment] to bless: and he has Blessed (Favored by God; happy; prosperous); and I cannot reverse it.
21He has not beheld iniquity in Ya’akov [Heal of God], neither has he seen perverseness in Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God]: the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) his God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered] [is] with him, and the shout of a king [is] among them.
22God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered] brought them out of Mitzrayim [Egypt - The Narrow Place]; he has as it were the strength of an unicorn.
23Surely [there is] no enchantment against Ya’akov [Heal of God], neither [is there] any divination against Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God]: according to this time it shall be said of Ya’akov [Heal of God] and of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God], What has God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered] wrought!
24Behold, the people shall rise up as a great lion, and lift up himself as a young lion: he shall not lie down until he eat [of] the prey, and drink the blood of the slain.
25And Balak [Devastator] said unto Bil’am [Not of the People], Neither curse them at all, nor bless them at all.
26But Bil’am [Not of the People] answered and said unto Balak [Devastator], Told not I youi, saying, All that the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) speaks, that I must do?
27And Balak [Devastator] said unto Bil’am [Not of the People], Come, I pray youi, I will bring youi unto another place; perhaps it will please God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered] that youi may curse me them from there.
28And Balak [Devastator] brought Bil’am [Not of the People] unto the top of P’or [Cleft (split hoof; an opening, break or split)], that looks toward Y’shim’on [Wasteland].
29And Bil’am [Not of the People] said unto Balak [Devastator], Build me here seven altars, and prepare me here seven bullocks and seven rams.
30And Balak [Devastator] did as Bil’am [Not of the People] had said, and offered a bullock and a ram on [every] altar.
