He saith, who heareth the words of God, And knoweth the knowledge of the Most High, Who seeth the vision of the Almighty, Falling down, and having his eyes open:
17I see him, but not now; I behold him, but not nigh: There shall come forth a star out of Jacob, And a sceptre shall rise out of Israel, And shall smite through the corners of Moab, And break down all the sons of tumult.
18And Edom shall be a possession, Seir also shall be a possession, who were his enemies; While Israel doeth valiantly.
19And out of Jacob shall one have dominion, And shall destroy the remnant from the city.
20And he looked on Amalek, and took up his parable, and said, Amalek was the first of the nations; But his latter end shall come to destruction.
21And he looked on the Kenite, and took up his parable, and said, Strong is thy dwelling-place, And thy nest is set in the rock.
22Nevertheless Kain shall be wasted, Until Asshur shall carry thee away captive.
23And he took up his parable, and said, Alas, who shall live when God doeth this?
24But ships'shall come from the coast of Kittim, And they shall afflict Asshur, and shall afflict Eber; And he also shall come to destruction.
25And Balaam rose up, and went and returned to his place; and Balak also went his way.
