Numbers 22:12–21

12God said to Balaam, ‘You shall not go with them; you shall not curse the people, for they are blessed.’ 13So Balaam rose in the morning, and said to the officials of Balak, ‘Go to your own land, for the Lord has refused to let me go with you.’ 14So the officials of Moab rose and went to Balak, and said, ‘Balaam refuses to come with us.’

15 Once again Balak sent officials, more numerous and more distinguished than these. 16They came to Balaam and said to him, ‘Thus says Balak son of Zippor: “Do not let anything hinder you from coming to me; 17for I will surely do you great honour, and whatever you say to me I will do; come, curse this people for me.” 18But Balaam replied to the servants of Balak, ‘Although Balak were to give me his house full of silver and gold, I could not go beyond the command of the Lord my God, to do less or more. 19You remain here, as the others did, so that I may learn what more the Lord may say to me.’ 20That night God came to Balaam and said to him, ‘If the men have come to summon you, get up and go with them; but do only what I tell you to do.’ 21So Balaam got up in the morning, saddled his donkey, and went with the officials of Moab.
