1 Profectique castrametati sunt in campestribus Moab, ubi trans Jordanem Jericho sita est.

2 Videns autem Balac filius Sephor omnia quæ fecerat Israël Amorrhæo,

3 et quod pertimuissent eum Moabitæ, et impetum ejus ferre non possent,

4 dixit ad majores natu Madian : Ita delebit hic populus omnes, qui in nostris finibus commorantur, quomodo solet bos herbas usque ad radices carpere. Ipse erat eo tempore rex in Moab.

5 Misit ergo nuntios ad Balaam filium Beor ariolum, qui habitabat super flumen terræ filiorum Ammon, ut vocarent eum, et dicerent : Ecce egressus est populus ex Ægypto, qui operuit superficiem terræ, sedens contra me.

6 Veni igitur, et maledic populo huic, quia fortior me est : si quomodo possim percutere et ejicere eum de terra mea. Novi enim quod benedictus sit cui benedixeris, et maledictus in quem maledicta congesseris.

7 Perrexeruntque seniores Moab, et majores natu Madian, habentes divinationis pretium in manibus. Cumque venissent ad Balaam, et narrassent ei omnia verba Balac,

8 ille respondit : Manete hic nocte, et respondebo quidquid mihi dixerit Dominus. Manentibus illis apud Balaam, venit Deus, et ait ad eum :

9 Quid sibi volunt homines isti apud te ?

10 Respondit : Balac filius Sephor rex Moabitarum misit ad me,

11 dicens : Ecce populus qui egressus est de Ægypto, operuit superficiem terræ : veni, et maledic ei, si quomodo possim pugnans abigere eum.

12 Dixitque Deus ad Balaam : Noli ire cum eis, neque maledicas populo : quia benedictus est.

13 Qui mane consurgens dixit ad principes : Ite in terram vestram, quia prohibuit me Dominus venire vobiscum.

14 Reversi principes dixerunt ad Balac : Noluit Balaam venire nobiscum.

15 Rursum ille multo plures et nobiliores quam ante miserat, misit.

16 Qui cum venissent ad Balaam, dixerunt : Sic dicit Balac filius Sephor : Ne cuncteris venire ad me :

17 paratus sum honorare te, et quidquid volueris, dabo tibi : veni, et maledic populo isti.

18 Respondit Balaam : Si dederit mihi Balac plenam domum suam argenti et auri, non potero immutare verbum Domini Dei mei, ut vel plus, vel minus loquar.

19 Obsecro ut hic maneatis etiam hac nocte, et scire queam quid mihi rursum respondeat Dominus.

20 Venit ergo Deus ad Balaam nocte, et ait ei : Si vocare te venerunt homines isti, surge, et vade cum eis : ita dumtaxat, ut quod tibi præcepero, facias.

21 Surrexit Balaam mane, et strata asina sua profectus est cum eis.

22 Et iratus est Deus. Stetitque angelus Domini in via contra Balaam, qui insidebat asinæ, et duos pueros habebat secum.

23 Cernens asina angelum stantem in via, evaginato gladio, avertit se de itinere, et ibat per agrum. Quam cum verberaret Balaam, et vellet ad semitam reducere,

24 stetit angelus in angustiis duarum maceriarum, quibus vineæ cingebantur.

25 Quem videns asina, junxit se parieti, et attrivit sedentis pedem. At ille iterum verberabat eam :

26 et nihilominus angelus ad locum angustum transiens, ubi nec ad dexteram, nec ad sinistram poterat deviare, obvius stetit.

27 Cumque vidisset asina stantem angelum, concidit sub pedibus sedentis : qui iratus, vehementius cædebat fuste latera ejus.

28 Aperuitque Dominus os asinæ, et locuta est : Quid feci tibi ? cur percutis me ecce jam tertio ?

29 Respondit Balaam : Quia commeruisti, et illusisti mihi : utinam haberem gladium, ut te percuterem !

30 Dixit asina : Nonne animal tuum sum, cui semper sedere consuevisti usque in præsentem diem ? dic quid simile umquam fecerim tibi. At ille ait : Numquam.

31 Protinus aperuit Dominus oculos Balaam, et vidit angelum stantem in via, evaginato gladio, adoravitque eum pronus in terram.

32 Cui angelus : Cur, inquit, tertio verberas asinam tuam ? ego veni ut adversarer tibi, quia perversa est via tua, mihique contraria :

33 et nisi asina declinasset de via, dans locum resistenti, te occidissem, et illa viveret.

34 Dixit Balaam : Peccavi, nesciens quod tu stares contra me : et nunc si displicet tibi ut vadam, revertar.

35 Ait angelus : Vade cum istis, et cave ne aliud quam præcepero tibi loquaris. Ivit igitur cum principibus.

36 Quod cum audisset Balac, egressus est in occursum ejus in oppido Moabitarum, quod situm est in extremis finibus Arnon.

37 Dixitque ad Balaam : Misi nuntios ut vocarent te : cur non statim venisti ad me ? an quia mercedem adventui tuo reddere nequeo ?

38 Cui ille respondit : Ecce adsum : numquid loqui potero aliud, nisi quod Deus posuerit in ore meo ?

39 Perrexerunt ergo simul, et venerunt in urbem, quæ in extremis regni ejus finibus erat.

40 Cumque occidisset Balac boves et oves, misit ad Balaam, et principes qui cum eo erant, munera.

41 Mane autem facto, duxit eum ad excelsa Baal, et intuitus est extremam partem populi.

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.
