“Give ear to me, O cursing son of wrath:
The LORD is not a man that He should lie

“Give ear to me, O cursing son of wrath:

The LORD is not a man that He should lie

Nor like a son of man who shifts his path.

What He has spoken will He not apply?

The LORD has blessed, He thus my lips commands:

No wickedness may crown their head with thorns,

For God has brought them out of Egypt’s lands;

The LORD, their king, gives ox-like strength and horns.

There is no sorcery ‘gainst Israel

And divination certainly will fail;

This lioness defies the gates of Hell –

Like lions, Jacob’s children will prevail.

For, as the jungle’s king, they need no rest

‘Til they devour their prey. Thus God has blest!”

Balaam’s 2nd Oracle (Numbers 23:18-24)
