Numbers 23:1 And Balaam sayde vnto Balac: Buylde me here seuen altares, and prouyde me here seuen bullockes, and seue rammes. Numbers 23:2 Balac dyd as Balaam sayde. And both Balac and Balaam offred, on euery altare a bullocke & a ramme. Numbers 23:3 And Balaam sayde vnto Balac: Stonde thou by yi burntofferynge, I wil go, yf happly the LORDE wil mete me, & call me, yt I maye tell the, what so euer he sheweth me. And he wente his waye, as he sayde. Numbers 23:4 And ye LORDE mett Balaam. And Balaam saide vnto him: Seuen altares haue I prepared, and offred on euery altare a bullocke and a ramme. Numbers 23:5 The LORDE put ye worde in Balaams mouth, and sayde: Go agayne vnto Balac, and saye on this wise. Numbers 23:6 And whan he came agayne vnto him, beholde, he stode by his burntofferynge, with all ye prynces of the Moabites.
Numbers 23:7 Then toke he vp his parable, & sayde: Balac the kynge of the Moabites hath caused to fet me out of Syria from the moutaynes towarde the East, (& sayde:) Come, curse me Iacob: come, defye me Israel. Numbers 23:8 How shall I curse, whom God curseth not? How shal I defye, whom ye LORDE defyeth not? Numbers 23:9 For fro ye toppe of ye stonye rockes I se him, & from the hilles I beholde him. Beholde, ye people shal dwell by theselues, & shal not be rekened amoge the Heithe. Numbers 23:10 Who can tell the dust of Iacob, & the nombre of the fourth parte of Israel? My soule die ye death of ye righteous, and my ende be as the ende of these. Numbers 23:11 The saide Balac vnto Balaam: What doest thou vnto me? I caused to set ye for to curse myne enemies, & beholde, thou blessest the. Numbers 23:12 He answered & saide: Must I not kepe & speake yt, which the LORDE putteth in to me mouth?
Numbers 23:13 Balac saide vnto him: Come wt me yet vnto another place, fro whence thou mayest se ye vttemost parte of them, & not se them all, and curse me them there.
Numbers 23:14 And he toke him vp to a fre place, eue vnto the toppe of Pisga, & buylded seuen altares, and offered on euery altare a bullocke & a ramme. Numbers 23:15 And he sayde vnto Balac: Stonde so by thy burntoffrynge, whyle I go yonder. Numbers 23:16 And the LORDE mett Balaam, & put the worde in his mouth, & sayde: Go agayne vnto Balac, & saye on this wyse. Numbers 23:17 And whan he came to him agayne, beholde, he stode by his burntofferynge with the prynces of the Moabites. And Balac sayde vnto him: What hath the LORDE sayde?
Numbers 23:18 And he toke vp his parable, & sayde: Ryse vp Balac & heare, marke my testimony wt thine eares thou sonne of Ziphor. Numbers 23:19 God is not a man yt he shulde lye, ner a mans childe yt eny thinge shulde repente him. Shulde he saye and not do? Shulde he speake & not make it good? Numbers 23:20 Beholde, I am brought hither to blesse, I blesse, & can not go backe there fro. Numbers 23:21 There is no weerynesse sene in Iacob, nether eny laboure in Israel. The LORDE his God is wt him, & the kynges trompet is amoge the. Numbers 23:22 God hath brought the out of Egipte, his stregth is as of an Vnicorne. Numbers 23:23 For there is no Sorcerye in Iacob, & no Soyth sayer in Israel. Whan the tyme cometh, it shalbe saide vnto Iacob, & to Israel, what God doth. Numbers 23:24 Beholde, the people shall ryse vp as a Lyonesse, & heue vp him self as a Lyon. He shal not lye downe, tyll he eate of the pray, and drynke the bloude of the slayne.
Numbers 23:25 Then sayde Balac vnto Balaam: Thou shalt nether curse him ner blesse him. Numbers 23:26 Balaam answered, & sayde vnto Balac: Haue I not tolde the: All yt the LORDE speaketh, yt must I do?
Numbers 23:27 Balac saide vnto him: Oh come, I wil brynge ye to another place, yf it maye happly please God, yt thou mayest curse the there.
Numbers 23:28 And he brought him vp to the toppe of mount Peor, yt boweth towarde the wyldernesse. Numbers 23:29 And Balaam sayde vnto Balac: Buylde me here seuen altares, and prouyde me seuen bullockes and seuen rammes. Numbers 23:30 Balac dyd as Balaam sayde, and offered on euery altare a bullocke vnd a ramme.
