And the LORD met Balaam, and put a word in his mouth, and said, Go again unto Balak, and say thus.
And the LORD put a word in Balaam's mouth, and said, "Return to Balak, and thus you shall speak."
And the angel of the LORD said to Balaam, "Go with the men; but only the word which I bid you, that shall you speak." So Balaam went on with the princes of Balak.
When Balaam saw that it pleased the LORD to bless Israel, he did not go, as at other times, to look for omens, but set his face toward the wilderness.
