1 Daarna het die kinders van Israel weggetrek en laer opgeslaan in die vlaktes van Moab, oos van die Jordaan van Jérigo.

2 Toe Balak, die seun van Sippor, sien alles wat Israel die Amoriete aangedoen het,

3 het Moab baie bang geword vir die volk, want hulle was talryk; en Moab het beangs geword vanweë die kinders van Israel.

4 Toe Moab vir die oudstes van Mídian: Nou sal hierdie menigte opeet alles wat rondom ons is, soos 'n bees die groenigheid van die veld opeet. En Balak, die seun van Sippor, was dié tyd koning van Moab.

5 Daarop het hy boodskappers gestuur na Bíleam, die seun van Beor, in Petor wat by die Eufraat is, in die land van die kinders van sy volk, om hom te roep en te : Kyk, daar het 'n volk uit Egipte getrek; kyk, hulle het die oppervlakte van die land oordek en staan gelaer teenoor my.

6 Kom dan tog nou, vervloek hierdie volk vir my, want hulle is magtiger as ek. Miskien sal ek onder hulle 'n slag kan slaan en hulle uit die land verdrywe. Want ek weet, die een wat jy seën, is geseënd; en die een wat jy vervloek, is vervloek.

7 Toe het die oudstes van Moab en die oudstes van Mídian gegaan met waarsêersloon by hulle en by Bíleam gekom en hom die woorde van Balak meegedeel.

8 Daarop antwoord hy hulle: Bly vannag hier oor; dan sal ek julle berig bring soos die HERE aan my sal . Toe het die vorste van Moab by Bíleam gebly.

9 En God het na Bíleam gekom en gesê: Wie is die manne daar by jou?

10 En Bíleam het God geantwoord: Balak, die seun van Sippor, die koning van Moab, laat my weet:

11 Kyk, daar het 'n volk uit Egipte getrek en hulle het die oppervlakte van die land oordek. Kom nou, vervloek hulle vir my; miskien sal ek hulle kan beveg en hulle verdrywe.

12 Toe God vir Bíleam: Jy mag nie saam met hulle trek nie, jy mag die volk nie vloek nie, want hulle is geseënd.

13 Toe staan Bíleam die môre op, en hy aan die vorste van Balak: Gaan na julle land, want die HERE het geweier om my saam met julle te laat gaan.

14 En die vorste van Moab het klaargemaak en by Balak gekom en gesê: Bíleam het geweier om saam met ons te gaan.

15 Daarop stuur Balak nog weer vorste wat meer en aansienliker was as die ander;

16 en hulle het by Bíleam gekom en aan hom gesê: So spreek Balak, die seun van Sippor: Laat jou tog nie terughou om na my te kom nie.

17 Want ek sal jou baie hoog vereer en alles wat jy my , sal ek doen; daarom kom tog, vervloek hierdie volk vir my.

18 Toe antwoord Bíleam en aan die dienaars van Balak: Al gee Balak my sy huis vol silwer en goud, ek kan die bevel van die HERE my God nie oortree om klein of groot te doen nie.

19 Nou dan, bly julle tog ook vannag hier, dat ek mag weet wat die HERE verder aan my sal .

20 En God het in die nag na Bíleam gekom en aan hom gesê: As die manne gekom het om jou te roep, staan dan op, gaan met hulle saam; maar net wat Ek jou , dit moet jy doen.

21 Toe maak Bíleam die môre klaar en saal sy eselin op, en hy het weggetrek saam met die vorste van Moab.

22 Maar die toorn van God het ontvlam, omdat hy weggetrek het; en die Engel van die HERE het gaan staan in die pad as sy teëparty, terwyl hy op sy esel ry en sy twee dienaars by hom was.

23 En die esel het die Engel van die HERE in die pad sien staan, met sy ontblote swaard in sy hand; daarom het die esel uit die pad uitgedraai en die veld ingeloop. Maar Bíleam het die esel geslaan om haar na die pad te stuur.

24 Daarop gaan die Engel van die HERE in 'n hol pad tussen die wingerde staan--'n muur duskant en 'n muur anderkant.

25 En toe die esel die Engel van die HERE sien, druk sy haarself teen die muur en druk ook Bíleam se voet teen die muur; daarom het hy haar weer geslaan.

26 En die Engel van die HERE het weer verder gegaan en bly staan op 'n nou plek waar geen pad was om regs of links uit te draai nie.

27 Toe die esel die Engel van die HERE sien, gaan sy onder Bíleam lê. Daarop het Bíleam baie kwaad geword en die esel met 'n stok geslaan.

28 Maar die HERE het die bek van die esel geopen, en sy vir Bíleam: Wat het ek jou gedoen, dat jy my nou al drie maal geslaan het?

29 Daarop antwoord Bíleam die esel: Omdat jy die spot met my drywe. Was daar net 'n swaard in my hand--dan het ek jou sekerlik doodgeslaan.

30 En die esel vir Bíleam: Is ek nie jou esel waar jy jou lewe lank op gery het tot vandag toe nie? Was dit ooit my gewoonte om so met jou te doen? En hy antwoord: Nee.

31 Toe open die HERE die van Bíleam, sodat hy die Engel van die HERE in die pad sien staan met sy ontblote swaard in sy hand, en hy het gebuig en op sy aangesig neergeval.

32 En die Engel van die HERE vra hom: Waarom het jy jou esel nou al drie maal geslaan? Kyk, Ek self het uitgegaan as 'n teëparty, want jou weg loop gevaarlik steil in my oog!

33 Maar die esel het My gesien en nou al drie maal voor My uitgedraai. As sy nie voor My uitgedraai het nie--dan het Ek jou alte seker gedood en haar laat lewe.

34 Toe antwoord Bíleam die Engel van die HERE: Ek het gesondig, want ek het nie geweet dat U teenoor my in die pad gestaan het nie. Maar nou, as dit verkeerd is in u , sal ek teruggaan.

35 En die Engel van die HERE vir Bíleam: Gaan saam met die manne, maar net die woord wat Ek jou , dit moet jy spreek. So het Bíleam dan met die vorste van Balak saamgegaan.

36 Toe Balak hoor dat Bíleam kom, het hy uitgetrek hom tegemoet na Ir-Moab wat by die grens van die Arnon lê, by die uiteinde van die grondgebied.

37 En Balak vir Bíleam: Het ek nie herhaaldelik na jou gestuur om jou te laat roep nie? Waarom het jy nie na my gekom nie? Is ek werklik nie in staat om jou te vereer nie?

38 En Bíleam het Balak geantwoord: Hier het ek na jou gekom. Is ek nou wel in staat om iets te spreek? Die woord wat God in my mond lê, dit sal ek spreek.

39 Bíleam het toe saam met Balak gegaan, en hulle het by Kirjat-Husot gekom.

40 En Balak het beeste en kleinvee geoffer en daarvan aan Bíleam gestuur en aan die vorste wat by hom was.

41 En in die môre het Balak Bíleam geneem en hom op die hoogtes van Baäl laat opklim vanwaar hy die kant van die volk kon sien.

Explanation of Numbers 22      

Napsal(a) Henry MacLagan

Verse 1. The man of the church comes into a state of the adulteration of good externally.

Verses 2-4. But those who are internally in such a state fear genuine spiritual truths.

Verses 5-7. And hence they consult falsity derived from evil, which interprets the Word from selfish love.

Verses 8-14. The false teacher, however, is forbidden to cause aversion from the Lord in the truly spiritual man, and, outwardly, he is constrained to submit.

Verses 15-21. But he is now more strongly tempted by evil, inwardly desiring to comply with its promptings, notwithstanding his knowledge of the truth; and hence he is permitted to go forward in the path of error.

Verse 22. And yet Divine Truth is really opposed to him, while, by means of his rational powers he endeavours to carry out his purposes.

Verse 23. But even natural reason recognizes Divine Truth, and is afraid of it, being thereby diverted from error and urgent for the cultivation of good, while evil is persistent, and therefore injures the Rational.

Verses 24-25. Again, the progress of error is impeded by the opposition of the truth in an accommodated form, yet still the false teacher persists, the natural affections are injured, and the Rational is further perverted.

Verses 26-35. And, thirdly, Divine Truth opposes error in the state where falsity is confirmed, and the Rational is therefore prostrated, but still has power to speak, from the Lord, convincing truths; and reproof from Divine Truth Itself follows, producing repentance, but only outwardly.

Verses 36-41.And therefore the false teacher is permitted to continue his career and to come into communication with adulterated good.
