Then Balaam(A) spoke his message:(B)

“Balak brought me from Aram,(C)
    the king of Moab from the eastern mountains.(D)
‘Come,’ he said, ‘curse Jacob for me;
    come, denounce Israel.’(E)
How can I curse
    those whom God has not cursed?(F)
How can I denounce
    those whom the Lord has not denounced?(G)
From the rocky peaks I see them,
    from the heights I view them.(H)
I see a people who live apart
    and do not consider themselves one of the nations.(I)
10 Who can count the dust of Jacob(J)
    or number even a fourth of Israel?
Let me die the death of the righteous,(K)
    and may my final end be like theirs!(L)
