BaMidbar (Numbers)

 Westminster Leningrad Codex Wiki English Translation‎ / World English Bible
1וַיִּסְע֖וּ בְּנֵ֣י יִשְׂרָאֵ֑ל וַֽיַּחֲנוּ֙ בְּעַֽרְב֣וֹת מוֹאָ֔ב מֵעֵ֖בֶר לְיַרְדֵּ֥ן יְרֵחֽוֹ ׃ ס Nm 22:1
¶The children of Israel traveled, and encamped in the plains of Moab beyond the Jordan at Jericho.
2וַיַּ֥רְא בָּלָ֖ק בֶּן ־ צִפּ֑וֹר אֵ֛ת כָּל ־ אֲשֶׁר ־ עָשָׂ֥ה יִשְׂרָאֵ֖ל לָֽאֱמֹרִֽי ׃Nm 22:2
Balak the son of Zippor saw all that Israel had done to the Amorites.
3וַיָּ֨גָר מוֹאָ֜ב מִפְּנֵ֥י הָעָ֛ם מְאֹ֖ד כִּ֣י רַב ־ ה֑וּא וַיָּ֣קָץ מוֹאָ֔ב מִפְּנֵ֖י בְּנֵ֥י יִשְׂרָאֵֽל ׃Nm 22:3
Moab was very afraid of the people, because they were many: and Moab was distressed because of the children of Israel.
4וַיֹּ֨אמֶר מוֹאָ֜ב אֶל ־ זִקְנֵ֣י מִדְיָ֗ן עַתָּ֞ה יְלַחֲכ֤וּ הַקָּהָל֙ אֶת ־ כָּל ־ סְבִ֣יבֹתֵ֔ינוּ כִּלְחֹ֣ךְ הַשּׁ֔וֹר אֵ֖ת יֶ֣רֶק הַשָּׂדֶ֑ה וּבָלָ֧ק בֶּן ־ צִפּ֛וֹר מֶ֥לֶךְ לְמוֹאָ֖ב בָּעֵ֥ת הַהִֽוא ׃Nm 22:4
Moab said to the elders of Midian, “Now this multitude will lick up all that is around us, as the ox licks up the grass of the field.”
¶Balak the son of Zippor was king of Moab at that time.
5וַיִּשְׁלַ֨ח מַלְאָכִ֜ים אֶל ־ בִּלְעָ֣ם בֶּן ־ בְּע֗וֹר פְּ֠תוֹרָה אֲשֶׁ֧ר עַל ־ הַנָּהָ֛ר אֶ֥רֶץ בְּנֵי ־ עַמּ֖וֹ לִקְרֹא ־ ל֑וֹ לֵאמֹ֗ר הִ֠נֵּה עַ֣ם יָצָ֤א מִמִּצְרַ֙יִם֙ הִנֵּ֤ה כִסָּה֙ אֶת ־ עֵ֣ין הָאָ֔רֶץ וְה֥וּא יֹשֵׁ֖ב מִמֻּלִֽי ׃Nm 22:5
He sent messengers to Balaam the son of Beor, to Pethor, which is by the River, to the land of the children of his people, to call him, saying, “Behold, there is a people who came out from Egypt. Behold, they cover the surface of the earth, and they are staying opposite me.
6וְעַתָּה֩ לְכָה ־ נָּ֨א אָֽרָה ־ לִּ֜י אֶת ־ הָעָ֣ם הַזֶּ֗ה כִּֽי ־ עָצ֥וּם הוּא֙ מִמֶּ֔נִּי אוּלַ֤י אוּכַל֙ נַכֶּה ־ בּ֔וֹ וַאֲגָרְשֶׁ֖נּוּ מִן ־ הָאָ֑רֶץ כִּ֣י יָדַ֗עְתִּי אֵ֤ת אֲשֶׁר ־ תְּבָרֵךְ֙ מְבֹרָ֔ךְ וַאֲשֶׁ֥ר תָּאֹ֖ר יוּאָֽר ׃Nm 22:6
Please come now therefore curse me this people; for they are too mighty for me: perhaps I shall prevail, that we may strike them, and that I may drive them out of the land; for I know that he whom you bless is blessed, and he whom you curse is cursed.”
7וַיֵּ֨לְכ֜וּ זִקְנֵ֤י מוֹאָב֙ וְזִקְנֵ֣י מִדְיָ֔ן וּקְסָמִ֖ים בְּיָדָ֑ם וַיָּבֹ֙אוּ֙ אֶל ־ בִּלְעָ֔ם וַיְדַבְּר֥וּ אֵלָ֖יו דִּבְרֵ֥י בָלָֽק ׃Nm 22:7
¶The elders of Moab and the elders of Midian departed with the rewards of divination in their hand; and they came to Balaam, and spoke to him the words of Balak.
8וַיֹּ֣אמֶר אֲלֵיהֶ֗ם לִ֤ינוּ פֹה֙ הַלַּ֔יְלָה וַהֲשִׁבֹתִ֤י אֶתְכֶם֙ דָּבָ֔ר כַּאֲשֶׁ֛ר יְדַבֵּ֥ר יְהוָ֖ה אֵלָ֑י וַיֵּשְׁב֥וּ שָׂרֵֽי ־ מוֹאָ֖ב עִם ־ בִּלְעָֽם ׃Nm 22:8
He said to them, “Lodge here this night, and I will bring you word again, as Yahweh shall speak to me.” The princes of Moab stayed with Balaam.
9וַיָּבֹ֥א אֱלֹהִ֖ים אֶל ־ בִּלְעָ֑ם וַיֹּ֕אמֶר מִ֛י הָאֲנָשִׁ֥ים הָאֵ֖לֶּה עִמָּֽךְ ׃Nm 22:9
God came to Balaam, and said, “Who are these men with you?”
10וַיֹּ֥אמֶר בִּלְעָ֖ם אֶל ־ הָאֱלֹהִ֑ים בָּלָ֧ק בֶּן ־ צִפֹּ֛ר מֶ֥לֶךְ מוֹאָ֖ב שָׁלַ֥ח אֵלָֽי ׃Nm 22:10
Balaam said to God, “Balak the son of Zippor, king of Moab, has sent to me, saying,
11הִנֵּ֤ה הָעָם֙ הַיֹּצֵ֣א מִמִּצְרַ֔יִם וַיְכַ֖ס אֶת ־ עֵ֣ין הָאָ֑רֶץ עַתָּ֗ה לְכָ֤ה קָֽבָה ־ לִּי֙ אֹת֔וֹ אוּלַ֥י אוּכַ֛ל לְהִלָּ֥חֶם בּ֖וֹ וְגֵרַשְׁתִּֽיו ׃Nm 22:11
‘Behold, the people that is come out of Egypt, it covers the surface of the earth: now, come curse me them; perhaps I shall be able to fight against them, and shall drive them out.’”
12וַיֹּ֤אמֶר אֱלֹהִים֙ אֶל ־ בִּלְעָ֔ם לֹ֥א תֵלֵ֖ךְ עִמָּהֶ֑ם לֹ֤א תָאֹר֙ אֶת ־ הָעָ֔ם כִּ֥י בָר֖וּךְ הֽוּא ׃Nm 22:12
¶God said to Balaam, “You shall not go with them. You shall not curse the people; for they are blessed.”
13וַיָּ֤קָם בִּלְעָם֙ בַּבֹּ֔קֶר וַיֹּ֙אמֶר֙ אֶל ־ שָׂרֵ֣י בָלָ֔ק לְכ֖וּ אֶֽל ־ אַרְצְכֶ֑ם כִּ֚י מֵאֵ֣ן יְהוָ֔ה לְתִתִּ֖י לַהֲלֹ֥ךְ עִמָּכֶֽם ׃Nm 22:13
¶Balaam rose up in the morning, and said to the princes of Balak, “Go to your land; for Yahweh refuses to permit me to go with you.”
14וַיָּק֙וּמוּ֙ שָׂרֵ֣י מוֹאָ֔ב וַיָּבֹ֖אוּ אֶל ־ בָּלָ֑ק וַיֹּ֣אמְר֔וּ מֵאֵ֥ן בִּלְעָ֖ם הֲלֹ֥ךְ עִמָּֽנוּ ׃Nm 22:14
¶The princes of Moab rose up, and they went to Balak, and said, “Balaam refuses to come with us.”
15וַיֹּ֥סֶף ע֖וֹד בָּלָ֑ק שְׁלֹ֣חַ שָׂרִ֔ים רַבִּ֥ים וְנִכְבָּדִ֖ים מֵאֵֽלֶּה ׃Nm 22:15
¶Balak sent yet again princes, more, and more honorable than they.
16וַיָּבֹ֖אוּ אֶל ־ בִּלְעָ֑ם וַיֹּ֣אמְרוּ ל֗וֹ כֹּ֤ה אָמַר֙ בָּלָ֣ק בֶּן ־ צִפּ֔וֹר אַל ־ נָ֥א תִמָּנַ֖ע מֵהֲלֹ֥ךְ אֵלָֽי ׃Nm 22:16
They came to Balaam, and said to him, “Thus says Balak the son of Zippor, ‘Please let nothing hinder you from coming to me:
17כִּֽי ־ כַבֵּ֤ד אֲכַבֶּדְךָ֙ מְאֹ֔ד וְכֹ֛ל אֲשֶׁר ־ תֹּאמַ֥ר אֵלַ֖י אֶֽעֱשֶׂ֑ה וּלְכָה ־ נָּא֙ קָֽבָה ־ לִּ֔י אֵ֖ת הָעָ֥ם הַזֶּֽה ׃Nm 22:17
for I will promote you to very great honor, and whatever you say to me I will do. Please come therefore, and curse this people for me.’”
18וַיַּ֣עַן בִּלְעָ֗ם וַיֹּ֙אמֶר֙ אֶל ־ עַבְדֵ֣י בָלָ֔ק אִם ־ יִתֶּן ־ לִ֥י בָלָ֛ק מְלֹ֥א בֵית֖וֹ כֶּ֣סֶף וְזָהָ֑ב לֹ֣א אוּכַ֗ל לַעֲבֹר֙ אֶת ־ פִּי֙ יְהוָ֣ה אֱלֹהָ֔י לַעֲשׂ֥וֹת קְטַנָּ֖ה א֥וֹ גְדוֹלָֽה ׃Nm 22:18
¶Balaam answered the servants of Balak, “If Balak would give me his house full of silver and gold, I can’t go beyond the word of Yahweh my God, to do less or more.
19וְעַתָּ֗ה שְׁב֨וּ נָ֥א בָזֶ֛ה גַּם ־ אַתֶּ֖ם הַלָּ֑יְלָה וְאֵ֣דְעָ֔ה מַה ־ יֹּסֵ֥ף יְהוָ֖ה דַּבֵּ֥ר עִמִּֽי ׃Nm 22:19
Now therefore, please wait also here this night, that I may know what Yahweh will speak to me more.”
20וַיָּבֹ֨א אֱלֹהִ֥ים ׀ אֶל ־ בִּלְעָם֮ לַיְלָה֒ וַיֹּ֣אמֶר ל֗וֹ אִם ־ לִקְרֹ֤א לְךָ֙ בָּ֣אוּ הָאֲנָשִׁ֔ים ק֖וּם לֵ֣ךְ אִתָּ֑ם וְאַ֗ךְ אֶת ־ הַדָּבָ֛ר אֲשֶׁר ־ אֲדַבֵּ֥ר אֵלֶ֖יךָ אֹת֥וֹ תַעֲשֶֽׂה ׃Nm 22:20
¶God came to Balaam at night, and said to him, “If the men have come to call you, rise up, go with them; but only the word which I speak to you, that you shall do.”
21וַיָּ֤קָם בִּלְעָם֙ בַּבֹּ֔קֶר וַֽיַּחֲבֹ֖שׁ אֶת ־ אֲתֹנ֑וֹ וַיֵּ֖לֶךְ עִם ־ שָׂרֵ֥י מוֹאָֽב ׃Nm 22:21
¶Balaam rose up in the morning, and saddled his donkey, and went with the princes of Moab.
22וַיִּֽחַר ־ אַ֣ף אֱלֹהִים֮ כִּֽי ־ הוֹלֵ֣ךְ הוּא֒ וַיִּתְיַצֵּ֞ב מַלְאַ֧ךְ יְהוָ֛ה בַּדֶּ֖רֶךְ לְשָׂטָ֣ן ל֑וֹ וְהוּא֙ רֹכֵ֣ב עַל ־ אֲתֹנ֔וֹ וּשְׁנֵ֥י נְעָרָ֖יו עִמּֽוֹ ׃Nm 22:22
God’s anger was kindled because he went; and the angel of Yahweh placed himself in the way for an adversary against him. Now he was riding on his donkey, and his two servants were with him.
23וַתֵּ֣רֶא הָאָתוֹן֩ אֶת ־ מַלְאַ֨ךְ יְהוָ֜ה נִצָּ֣ב בַּדֶּ֗רֶךְ וְחַרְבּ֤וֹ שְׁלוּפָה֙ בְּיָד֔וֹ וַתֵּ֤ט הָֽאָתוֹן֙ מִן ־ הַדֶּ֔רֶךְ וַתֵּ֖לֶךְ בַּשָּׂדֶ֑ה וַיַּ֤ךְ בִּלְעָם֙ אֶת ־ הָ֣אָת֔וֹן לְהַטֹּתָ֖הּ הַדָּֽרֶךְ ׃Nm 22:23
The 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 went into the field: and Balaam struck the donkey, to turn her into the way.
24וַֽיַּעֲמֹד֙ מַלְאַ֣ךְ יְהוָ֔ה בְּמִשְׁע֖וֹל הַכְּרָמִ֑ים גָּדֵ֥ר מִזֶּ֖ה וְגָדֵ֥ר מִזֶּֽה ׃Nm 22:24
Then the angel of Yahweh stood in a narrow path between the vineyards, a wall being on this side, and a wall on that side.
25וַתֵּ֨רֶא הָאָת֜וֹן אֶת ־ מַלְאַ֣ךְ יְהוָ֗ה וַתִּלָּחֵץ֙ אֶל ־ הַקִּ֔יר וַתִּלְחַ֛ץ אֶת ־ רֶ֥גֶל בִּלְעָ֖ם אֶל ־ הַקִּ֑יר וַיֹּ֖סֶף לְהַכֹּתָֽהּ ׃Nm 22:25
The 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.
26וַיּ֥וֹסֶף מַלְאַךְ ־ יְהוָ֖ה עֲב֑וֹר וַֽיַּעֲמֹד֙ בְּמָק֣וֹם צָ֔ר אֲשֶׁ֛ר אֵֽין ־ דֶּ֥רֶךְ לִנְט֖וֹת יָמִ֥ין וּשְׂמֹֽאול ׃Nm 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.
27וַתֵּ֤רֶא הָֽאָתוֹן֙ אֶת ־ מַלְאַ֣ךְ יְהוָ֔ה וַתִּרְבַּ֖ץ תַּ֣חַת בִּלְעָ֑ם וַיִּֽחַר ־ אַ֣ף בִּלְעָ֔ם וַיַּ֥ךְ אֶת ־ הָאָת֖וֹן בַּמַּקֵּֽל ׃Nm 22:27
The 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.
28וַיִּפְתַּ֥ח יְהוָ֖ה אֶת ־ פִּ֣י הָאָת֑וֹן וַתֹּ֤אמֶר לְבִלְעָם֙ מֶה ־ עָשִׂ֣יתִֽי לְךָ֔ כִּ֣י הִכִּיתַ֔נִי זֶ֖ה שָׁלֹ֥שׁ רְגָלִֽים ׃Nm 22:28
¶Yahweh opened the mouth of the donkey, and she said to Balaam, “What have I done to you, that you have struck me these three times?”
29וַיֹּ֤אמֶר בִּלְעָם֙ לָֽאָת֔וֹן כִּ֥י הִתְעַלַּ֖לְתְּ בִּ֑י ל֤וּ יֶשׁ ־ חֶ֙רֶב֙ בְּיָדִ֔י כִּ֥י עַתָּ֖ה הֲרַגְתִּֽיךְ ׃Nm 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.”
30וַתֹּ֨אמֶר הָאָת֜וֹן אֶל ־ בִּלְעָ֗ם הֲלוֹא֩ אָנֹכִ֨י אֲתֹֽנְךָ֜ אֲשֶׁר ־ רָכַ֣בְתָּ עָלַ֗י מֵעֽוֹדְךָ֙ עַד ־ הַיּ֣וֹם הַזֶּ֔ה הַֽהַסְכֵּ֣ן הִסְכַּ֔נְתִּי לַעֲשׂ֥וֹת לְךָ֖ כֹּ֑ה וַיֹּ֖אמֶר לֹֽא ׃Nm 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.”
31וַיְגַ֣ל יְהוָה֮ אֶת ־ עֵינֵ֣י בִלְעָם֒ וַיַּ֞רְא אֶת ־ מַלְאַ֤ךְ יְהוָה֙ נִצָּ֣ב בַּדֶּ֔רֶךְ וְחַרְבּ֥וֹ שְׁלֻפָ֖ה בְּיָד֑וֹ וַיִּקֹּ֥ד וַיִּשְׁתַּ֖חוּ לְאַפָּֽיו ׃Nm 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 his head, and fell on his face.
32וַיֹּ֤אמֶר אֵלָיו֙ מַלְאַ֣ךְ יְהוָ֔ה עַל ־ מָ֗ה הִכִּ֙יתָ֙ אֶת ־ אֲתֹ֣נְךָ֔ זֶ֖ה שָׁל֣וֹשׁ רְגָלִ֑ים הִנֵּ֤ה אָנֹכִי֙ יָצָ֣אתִי לְשָׂטָ֔ן כִּֽי ־ יָרַ֥ט הַדֶּ֖רֶךְ לְנֶגְדִּֽי ׃Nm 22:32
The angel of Yahweh said to him, “Why have you struck your donkey these three times? Behold, I have come forth as an adversary, because your way is perverse before me:
33וַתִּרְאַ֙נִי֙ הָֽאָת֔וֹן וַתֵּ֣ט לְפָנַ֔י זֶ֖ה שָׁלֹ֣שׁ רְגָלִ֑ים אוּלַי֙ נָטְתָ֣ה מִפָּנַ֔י כִּ֥י עַתָּ֛ה גַּם ־ אֹתְכָ֥ה הָרַ֖גְתִּי וְאוֹתָ֥הּ הֶחֱיֵֽיתִי ׃Nm 22:33
and 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.”
34וַיֹּ֨אמֶר בִּלְעָ֜ם אֶל ־ מַלְאַ֤ךְ יְהוָה֙ חָטָ֔אתִי כִּ֚י לֹ֣א יָדַ֔עְתִּי כִּ֥י אַתָּ֛ה נִצָּ֥ב לִקְרָאתִ֖י בַּדָּ֑רֶךְ וְעַתָּ֛ה אִם ־ רַ֥ע בְּעֵינֶ֖יךָ אָשׁ֥וּבָה לִּֽי ׃Nm 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.”
35וַיֹּאמֶר֩ מַלְאַ֨ךְ יְהוָ֜ה אֶל ־ בִּלְעָ֗ם לֵ֚ךְ עִם ־ הָ֣אֲנָשִׁ֔ים וְאֶ֗פֶס אֶת ־ הַדָּבָ֛ר אֲשֶׁר ־ אֲדַבֵּ֥ר אֵלֶ֖יךָ אֹת֣וֹ תְדַבֵּ֑ר וַיֵּ֥לֶךְ בִּלְעָ֖ם עִם ־ שָׂרֵ֥י בָלָֽק ׃Nm 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 went with the princes of Balak.
36וַיִּשְׁמַ֥ע בָּלָ֖ק כִּ֣י בָ֣א בִלְעָ֑ם וַיֵּצֵ֨א לִקְרָאת֜וֹ אֶל ־ עִ֣יר מוֹאָ֗ב אֲשֶׁר֙ עַל ־ גְּב֣וּל אַרְנֹ֔ן אֲשֶׁ֖ר בִּקְצֵ֥ה הַגְּבֽוּל ׃Nm 22:36
When Balak heard that Balaam had come, he went out to meet him to the City of Moab, which is on the border of the Arnon, which is in the utmost part of the border.
37וַיֹּ֨אמֶר בָּלָ֜ק אֶל ־ בִּלְעָ֗ם הֲלֹא֩ שָׁלֹ֨חַ שָׁלַ֤חְתִּי אֵלֶ֙יךָ֙ לִקְרֹא ־ לָ֔ךְ לָ֥מָּה לֹא ־ הָלַ֖כְתָּ אֵלָ֑י הַֽאֻמְנָ֔ם לֹ֥א אוּכַ֖ל כַּבְּדֶֽךָ ׃Nm 22:37
Balak 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?”
38וַיֹּ֨אמֶר בִּלְעָ֜ם אֶל ־ בָּלָ֗ק הִֽנֵּה ־ בָ֙אתִי֙ אֵלֶ֔יךָ עַתָּ֕ה הֲיָכ֥וֹל אוּכַ֖ל דַּבֵּ֣ר מְא֑וּמָה הַדָּבָ֗ר אֲשֶׁ֨ר יָשִׂ֧ים אֱלֹהִ֛ים בְּפִ֖י אֹת֥וֹ אֲדַבֵּֽר ׃Nm 22:38
¶Balaam said to Balak, “Behold, I have come to you: have I now any power at all to speak anything? The word that God puts in my mouth, that shall I speak.”
39וַיֵּ֥לֶךְ בִּלְעָ֖ם עִם ־ בָּלָ֑ק וַיָּבֹ֖אוּ קִרְיַ֥ת חֻצֽוֹת ׃Nm 22:39
¶Balaam went with Balak, and they came to Kiriath Huzoth.
40וַיִּזְבַּ֥ח בָּלָ֖ק בָּקָ֣ר וָצֹ֑אן וַיְשַׁלַּ֣ח לְבִלְעָ֔ם וְלַשָּׂרִ֖ים אֲשֶׁ֥ר אִתּֽוֹ ׃Nm 22:40
Balak sacrificed cattle and sheep, and sent to Balaam, and to the princes who were with him.
41וַיְהִ֣י בַבֹּ֔קֶר וַיִּקַּ֤ח בָּלָק֙ אֶת ־ בִּלְעָ֔ם וַֽיַּעֲלֵ֖הוּ בָּמ֣וֹת בָּ֑עַל וַיַּ֥רְא מִשָּׁ֖ם קְצֵ֥ה הָעָֽם ׃Nm 22:41
It happened in the morning, that Balak took Balaam, and brought him up into the high places of Baal; and he saw from there the utmost part of the people.
