blessed, and he whom you curse is cursed.”

Zippor, ‘Please let nothing hinder you from coming to me:

me I will do. Please come therefore, and curse this people for me.’”
18Nm 22:1818καὶ ἀπεκρίθη Βαλααμ καὶ εἶπεν τοῖς ἄρχουσιν Βαλακ ἐὰν δῷ μοι Βαλακ πλήρη τὸν οἶκον αὐτοῦ ἀργυρίου καὶ χρυσίου οὐ δυνήσομαι παραβῆναι τὸ ῥῆμα κυρίου τοῦ θεοῦ ποιῆσαι αὐτὸ μικρὸν ἢ μέγα ἐν τῇ διανοίᾳ μουNm 22:18¶Balaam answered the servants of Balak, “If Balak would give me his

placed himself in the way for an adversary against him. Now he was riding
on his donkey, and his two servants were with him.
23Nm 22:2323καὶ ἰδοῦσα ἡ ὄνος τὸν ἄγγελον τοῦ θεοῦ ἀνθεστηκότα ἐν τῇ ὁδῷ καὶ τὴν ῥομφαίαν ἐσπασμένην ἐν τῇ χειρὶ αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐξέκλινεν ἡ ὄνος ἐκ τῆς ὁδοῦ καὶ ἐπορεύετο εἰς τὸ πεδίον καὶ ἐπάταξεν τὴν ὄνον τῇ ῥάβδῳ τοῦ εὐθῦναι αὐτὴν ἐν τῇ ὁδῷNm 22:23The donkey saw the angel of Yahweh standing in the way, with his
sword drawn in his hand; and the donkey turned aside out of the way, and

vineyards, a wall being on this side, and a wall on that side.
25Nm 22:2525καὶ ἰδοῦσα ἡ ὄνος τὸν ἄγγελον τοῦ θεοῦ προσέθλιψεν ἑαυτὴν πρὸς τὸν τοῖχον καὶ ἀπέθλιψεν τὸν πόδα Βαλααμ καὶ προσέθετο ἔτι μαστίξαι αὐτήνNm 22:25The donkey saw the angel of Yahweh, and she thrust herself to the
wall, and crushed Balaam’s foot against the wall: and he struck her again.
26Nm 22:2626καὶ προσέθετο ὁ ἄγγελος τοῦ θεοῦ καὶ ἀπελθὼν ὑπέστη ἐν τόπῳ στενῷ εἰς ὃν οὐκ ἦν ἐκκλῖναι δεξιὰν οὐδὲ ἀριστεράνNm 22:26¶The angel of Yahweh went further, and stood in a narrow place, where
there was no way to turn either to the right hand or to the left.
27Nm 22:2727καὶ ἰδοῦσα ἡ ὄνος τὸν ἄγγελον τοῦ θεοῦ συνεκάθισεν ὑποκάτω Βαλααμ καὶ ἐθυμώθη Βαλααμ καὶ ἔτυπτεν τὴν ὄνον τῇ ῥάβδῳNm 22:27The donkey saw the angel of Yahweh, and she lay down under Balaam:
and Balaam’s anger was kindled, and he struck the donkey with his staff.

have I done to you, that you have struck me these three times?”
29Nm 22:2929καὶ εἶπεν Βαλααμ τῇ ὄνῳ ὅτι ἐμπέπαιχάς μοι καὶ εἰ εἶχον μάχαιραν ἐν τῇ χειρί μου ἤδη ἂν ἐξεκέντησά σεNm 22:29¶Balaam said to the donkey, “Because you have mocked me, I wish there
were a sword in my hand, for now I would have killed you.”
30Nm 22:3030καὶ λέγει ἡ ὄνος τῷ Βαλααμ οὐκ ἐγὼ ἡ ὄνος σου ἐφ’ ἧς ἐπέβαινες ἀπὸ νεότητός σου ἕως τῆς σήμερον ἡμέρας μὴ ὑπεροράσει ὑπεριδοῦσα ἐποίησά σοι οὕτως ὁ δὲ εἶπεν οὐχίNm 22:30¶The donkey said to Balaam, “Am I not your donkey, on which you have
ridden all your life long to this day? Was I ever in the habit of doing so
to you?”¶He said, “No.”
31Nm 22:3131ἀπεκάλυψεν δὲ ὁ θεὸς τοὺς ὀφθαλμοὺς Βαλααμ καὶ ὁρᾷ τὸν ἄγγελον κυρίου ἀνθεστηκότα ἐν τῇ ὁδῷ καὶ τὴν μάχαιραν ἐσπασμένην ἐν τῇ χειρὶ αὐτοῦ καὶ κύψας προσεκύνησεν τῷ προσώπῳ αὐτοῦNm 22:31¶Then Yahweh opened the eyes of Balaam, and he saw the angel of
Yahweh standing in the way, with his sword drawn in his hand; and he bowed

these three times? Behold, I have come forth as an adversary, because your
way is perverse before me:
33Nm 22:3333καὶ ἰδοῦσά με ἡ ὄνος ἐξέκλινεν ἀπ’ ἐμοῦ τρίτον τοῦτο καὶ εἰ μὴ ἐξέκλινεν νῦν οὖν σὲ μὲν ἀπέκτεινα ἐκείνην δὲ περιεποιησάμηνNm 22:33and the donkey saw me, and turned aside before me these three times.
Unless she had turned aside from me, surely now I would have killed you,
and saved her alive.”
34Nm 22:3434καὶ εἶπεν Βαλααμ τῷ ἀγγέλῳ κυρίου ἡμάρτηκα οὐ γὰρ ἠπιστάμην ὅτι σύ μοι ἀνθέστηκας ἐν τῇ ὁδῷ εἰς συνάντησιν καὶ νῦν εἰ μή σοι ἀρέσκει ἀποστραφήσομαιNm 22:34¶Balaam said to the angel of Yahweh, “I have sinned; for I didn’t
know that you stood in the way against me. Now therefore, if it displeases
you, I will go back again.”
35Nm 22:3535καὶ εἶπεν ὁ ἄγγελος τοῦ θεοῦ πρὸς Βαλααμ συμπορεύθητι μετὰ τῶν ἀνθρώπων πλὴν τὸ ῥῆμα ὃ ἐὰν εἴπω πρὸς σέ τοῦτο φυλάξῃ λαλῆσαι καὶ ἐπορεύθη Βαλααμ μετὰ τῶν ἀρχόντων ΒαλακNm 22:35¶The angel of Yahweh said to Balaam, “Go with the men; but only the
word that I shall speak to you, that you shall speak.”¶So Balaam

37Nm 22:3737καὶ εἶπεν Βαλακ πρὸς Βαλααμ οὐχὶ ἀπέστειλα πρὸς σὲ καλέσαι σε διὰ τί οὐκ ἤρχου πρός με ὄντως οὐ δυνήσομαι τιμῆσαί σεNm 22:37Balak said to Balaam, “Didn’t I earnestly send to you to call you?
Why didn’t you come to me? Am I not able indeed to promote you to honor?”
38Nm 22:3838καὶ εἶπεν Βαλααμ πρὸς Βαλακ ἰδοὺ ἥκω πρὸς σέ νῦν δυνατὸς ἔσομαι λαλῆσαί τι τὸ ῥῆμα ὃ ἐὰν βάλῃ ὁ θεὸς εἰς τὸ στόμα μου τοῦτο λαλήσωNm 22:38¶Balaam said to Balak, “Behold, I have come to you: have I now any

up into the high places of Baal; and he saw from there the utmost part of
