Numbers 24:16-18 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

16 I heard this message from God.
    I learned what God Most High taught me.
I saw what God All-Powerful showed me.
    I humbly tell what I clearly see.

17 “I see him coming, but not now.
    I see him coming, but not soon.
A star will come from the family of Jacob.
    A new ruler will come from the Israelites.
He will smash the heads of the Moabites
    and crush the heads of all the sons of Sheth.[a]
18 Israel will grow strong!
    He will get the land of Edom.
    He will get the land of Seir,[b] his enemy.
