Numbers 23:1-4 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

Balaam’s Oracles

23 Then Balaam said to Balak, “Build me seven altars here and prepare seven bulls and seven rams for me.” So Balak did as Balaam directed, and they offered a bull and a ram on each altar. Balaam said to Balak, “Stay here by your burnt offering while I am gone. Maybe the Lord[a] will meet with me. I will tell you whatever He reveals to me.” So he went to a barren hill.

God[b] met with him and Balaam said to Him, “I have arranged seven altars and offered a bull and a ram on each altar.”
