1 Poi i figliuoli d’Israele partirono e si accamparono nelle pianure di Moab, oltre il Giordano di Gerico.

2 Or Balak, figliuolo di Tsippor, vide tutto quello che Israele avea fatto agli Amorei;

3 e Moab ebbe grande paura di questo popolo, ch’era così numeroso; Moab fu preso d’angoscia a cagione de’ figliuoli d’Israele.

4 Onde Moab disse agli anziani di Madian: "Ora questa moltitudine divorerà tutto ciò ch’è dintorno a noi, come il bue divora l’erba dei campi". Or Balak, figliuolo di Tsippor era, in quel tempo, re di Moab.

5 Egli mandò ambasciatori a Balaam, figliuolo di Beor, a Pethor che sta sul fiume, nel paese de’ figliuoli del suo popolo per chiamarlo e dirgli: "Ecco un popolo è uscito d’Egitto; esso ricopre la faccia della terra, e si è stabilito dirimpetto a me;

6 or dunque vieni, te ne prego, e maledicimi questo popolo; poiché è troppo potente per me; forse così riusciremo a sconfiggerlo, e potrò cacciarlo dal paese; poiché so che chi tu benedici è benedetto, e chi tu maledici è maledetto".

7 Gli anziani di Moab e gli anziani di Madian partirono portando in mano la mercede dell’indovino; e, arrivati da Balaam, gli riferirono le parole di Balak.

8 E Balaam disse loro: "Alloggiate qui stanotte; e vi darò la risposta secondo che mi dirà l’Eterno". E i principi di Moab stettero da Balaam.

9 Or Dio venne a Balaam e gli disse: "Chi sono questi uomini che stanno da te?"

10 E Balaam rispose a Dio: "Balak, figliuolo di Tsippor, re di Moab, mi ha mandato a dire:

11 Ecco, il popolo ch’è uscito d’Egitto ricopre la faccia della terra; or vieni a maledirmelo; forse riuscirò così a batterlo e potrò cacciarlo".

12 E Dio disse a Balaam: "Tu non andrai con loro, non maledirai quel popolo, perché egli è benedetto".

13 Balaam si levò, la mattina, e disse ai principi di Balak: "Andatevene al vostro paese, perché l’Eterno m’ha rifiutato il permesso di andare con voi".

14 E i principi di Moab si levarono, tornarono da Balak e dissero: "Balaam ha rifiutato di venir con noi".

15 Allora Balak mandò di nuovo de’ principi, in maggior numero e più ragguardevoli che que’ di prima.

16 I quali vennero da Balaam e gli dissero: "Così dice Balak, figliuolo di Tsippor: Deh, nulla ti trattenga dal venire da me;

17 poiché io ti ricolmerò di onori farò tutto ciò che mi dirai; vieni dunque, te ne prego, e maledicimi questo popolo".

18 Ma Balaam rispose e disse ai servi di Balak: "Quand’anche Balak mi desse la sua casa piena d’argento e d’oro, non potrei trasgredire l’ordine dell’Eterno, del mio Dio, per fare cosa piccola o grande che fosse.

19 Nondimeno, trattenetevi qui, anche voi, stanotte, ond’io sappia ciò che l’Eterno mi dirà ancora".

20 E Dio venne la notte a Balaam e gli disse: "Se quegli uomini son venuti a chiamarti, lèvati e va’ con loro; soltanto, farai ciò che io ti dirò".

21 Balaam quindi si levò la mattina, sellò la sua asina, e se ne andò coi principi di Moab.

22 Ma l’ira di Dio s’accese perché egli se n’era andato; e l’angelo dell’Eterno si pose sulla strada per fargli ostacolo. Or egli cavalcava la sua asina e avea seco due servitori.

23 L’asina, vedendo l’angelo dell’Eterno che stava sulla strada con la sua spada sguainata in mano, uscì di via e cominciava ad andare per i campi. Balaam percosse l’asina per rimetterla sulla strada.

24 Allora l’angelo dell’Eterno si fermò in un sentiero incavato che passava tra le vigne e aveva un muro di qua e un muro di là.

25 L’asina vide l’angelo dell’Eterno; si serrò al muro e strinse il piede di Balaam al muro; e Balaam la percosse di nuovo.

26 L’angelo dell’Eterno passò di nuovo oltre, e si fermò in un luogo stretto dove non c’era modo di volgersi né a destra né a sinistra.

27 L’asina vide l’angelo dell’Eterno e si sdraiò sotto Balaam; l’ira di Balaam s’accese, ed egli percosse l’asina con un bastone.

28 Allora l’Eterno aprì la bocca all’asina, che disse a Balaam: "Che t’ho io fatto che tu mi percuoti già per la terza volta?"

29 E Balaam rispose all’asina: "Perché ti sei fatta beffe di me. Ah se avessi una spada in mano! t’ammazzerei sull’attimo".

30 L’asina disse a Balaam: "Non son io la tua asina che hai sempre cavalcata fino a quest’oggi? Sono io solita farti così?" Ed egli rispose: "No".

31 Allora l’Eterno aprì gli occhi a Balaam, ed egli vide l’angelo dell’Eterno che stava sulla strada, con la sua spada sguainata. Balaam s’inchinò e si prostrò con la faccia in terra.

32 L’angelo dell’Eterno gli disse: "Perché hai percosso la tua asina già tre volte? Ecco, io sono uscito per farti ostacolo, perché la via che batti è contraria al voler mio;

33 e l’asina m’ha visto ed è uscita di strada davanti a me queste tre volte; se non fosse uscita di strada davanti a me, certo io avrei già ucciso te e lasciato in vita lei".

34 Allora Balaam disse all’angelo dell’Eterno: "Io ho peccato, perché non sapevo che tu ti fossi posto contro di me sulla strada; e ora, se questo ti dispiace, io me ne ritornerò".

35 E l’angelo dell’Eterno disse a Balaam: "Va’ pure con quegli uomini; ma dirai soltanto quello che io ti dirò". E Balaam se ne andò coi principi di Balak.

36 Quando Balak udì che Balaam arrivava, gli andò incontro a Jr-Moab che è sul confine segnato dall’Arnon, alla frontiera estrema.

37 E Balak disse a Balaam: "Non t’ho io mandato con insistenza a chiamare? perché non sei venuto da me? non son io proprio i grado di farti onore?"

38 E Balaam rispose a Balak: "Ecco, son venuto da te; ma posso io adesso dire qualsiasi cosa? la parola che Dio mi metterà in bocca, quella dirò".

39 Balaam andò con Balak, e giunsero a Kiriath-Hutsoth.

40 E Balak sacrificò buoi e pecore e mandò parte delle carni a Balaam e ai principi ch’eran con lui.

41 La mattina Balak prese Balaam e lo fece salire a Bamoth Baal, donde Balaam vide l’estremità del campo d’Israele.

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.
