God is Not a Man - Numbers 23

Numbers 23:1 And Balaam said unto Balak, Build me here seven  altars, and prepare me here seven oxen and seven rams.  

Numbers 23:2 And Balak did as Balaam had spoken; and Balak  and Balaam offered on every altar a bullock and a ram.  

Numbers 23:3 And Balaam said unto Balak, Stand by thy burnt  offering, and I will go: peradventure the LORD will come  to meet me: and whatsoever he sheweth me I will tell thee.  And he went to an high place. 

Numbers 23:4 And God met  Balaam: and he said unto him, I have prepared seven altars,  and I have offered upon every altar a bullock and a ram.  

Numbers 23:5 And the LORD put a word in Balaam’s mouth, and  said, Return unto Balak, and thus thou shalt speak. 

Numbers 23:6  And he returned unto him, and, lo, he stood by his burnt  sacrifice, he, and all the princes of Moab. 

Numbers 23:7 And he  took up his parable, and said, Balak the king of Moab hath  brought me from Aram, out of the mountains of the east,  saying, Come, curse me Jacob, and come, defy Israel.  

Numbers 23:8 How shall I curse, whom God hath not cursed? or  how shall I defy, whom the LORD hath not defied?  

Numbers 23:9 For 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. 

Numbers 23:10 Who can count  the dust of Jacob, and the number of the fourth part of  Israel? Let me die the death of the righteous, and let my last  end be like his! 

Numbers 23:11 And Balak said unto Balaam, What  hast thou done unto me? I took thee to curse mine enemies,  and, behold, thou hast blessed them altogether. 

Numbers 23:12  And he answered and said, Must I not take heed to speak  that which the LORD hath put in my mouth? 

Numbers 23:13 And  Balak said unto him, Come, I pray thee, with me unto  another place, from whence thou mayest see them: thou  shalt see but the utmost part of them, and shalt not see them  all: and curse me them from thence.  

Numbers 23:14 And he brought him into the field of Zophim, to  the top of Pisgah, and built seven altars, and offered a  bullock and a ram on every altar. 

Numbers 23:15 And he said  unto Balak, Stand here by thy burnt offering, while I meet  the LORD yonder. 

Numbers 23:16 And the LORD met Balaam,  and put a word in his mouth, and said, Go again unto Balak,  and say thus. 

Numbers 23:17 And when he came to him, behold, he  stood by his burnt offering, and the princes of Moab with  him. And Balak said unto him, What hath the LORD  spoken? 

Numbers 23:18 And he took up his parable, and said, Rise  up, Balak, and hear; hearken unto me, thou son of Zippor:  

Numbers 23:19 God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the  son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he  not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it  good? 

Numbers 23:20 Behold, I have received commandment to  bless: and he hath blessed; and I cannot reverse it. 

Numbers 23:21  He hath not beheld iniquity in Jacob, neither hath he seen  perverseness in Israel: the LORD his God is with him, and  the shout of a king is among them. 

Numbers 23:22 God brought  them out of Egypt; he hath as it were the strength of an  unicorn. 

Numbers 23:23 Surely there is no enchantment against Jacob, neither is there any divination against Israel:  according to this time it shall be said of Jacob and of Israel,  What hath God wrought! 

Numbers 23:24 Behold, 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.   

Numbers 23:25 And Balak said unto Balaam, Neither curse them  at all, nor bless them at all. 

Numbers 23:26 But Balaam answered  and said unto Balak, Told not I thee, saying, All that the  LORD speaketh, that I must do?  

Numbers 23:27 And Balak said unto Balaam, Come, I pray thee,  I will bring thee unto another place; peradventure it will  please God that thou mayest curse me them from thence.  

Numbers 23:28 And Balak brought Balaam unto the top of Peor,  that looketh toward Jeshimon. 

Numbers 23:29 And Balaam said  unto Balak, Build me here seven altars, and prepare me here  seven bullocks and seven rams. 

Numbers 23:30 And Balak did as  Balaam had said, and offered a bullock and a ram on every  altar.
