Numbers 22:5; Numbers 22:7; Deuteronomy 23:4; Nehemiah 13:2; Jude 11; Revelation 2:14

msent messengers to Balaam the son of Beor nat Pethor, which is near the River1 in the land of the people of Amaw,2 to call him, saying, Behold, a people has come out of Egypt. They cover the face of the earth, and they are dwelling opposite me.


So the elders of Moab and lthe elders of Midian departed with pthe fees for divination in their hand. And they came to Balaam and gave him Balak's message.


lbecause they did not meet you with bread and with water on the way, when you came out of Egypt, and because they mhired against you Balaam the son of Beor from Pethor of nMesopotamia, to curse you.


for they did not meet the people of Israel with bread and water, but hired Balaam against them to curse themyet our God turned the curse into a blessing.


11 Woe to them! For they walked in zthe way of Cain and abandoned themselves for the sake of gain ato Balaam's error and bperished in Korah's rebellion.


14 But I have a few things against you: you have some there who hold the teaching of iBalaam, who taught Balak to put a stumbling block before the sons of Israel, so that they might jeat food sacrificed to idols and kpractice sexual immorality.
