Christian Standard Bible
18 Balaam proclaimed his poem:
Balak, get up and listen;
son of Zippor, pay attention to what I say!
19 God is not a man, that he might lie,
or a son of man, that he might change his mind.(A)
Does he speak and not act,
or promise and not fulfill?(B)
20 I have indeed received a command to bless;
since he has blessed,[a] I cannot change it.
- 23:20 Sam, LXX read since I will bless
