u And Balaam role up in the morning, and saddled his al's, and went with the princes of Moab.
22 ij And Clod's anger was kindled because he went: and the angel of the Lor n stood in the way for an adversary against him. Now he was riding upon his al's, and his two servant! inert with him.
23 And the ass saw the angel of the Lor D standing in the way, and his l'word drawn in his hand: and the al's turned aside out of the way, and went into the field: and Balaam smote the al's, to turn her into the way.
l+Butthe angel of the Lor D stood in a path of tile vineyards, a wall being on this side, and a wall on that side.
15 And when the al's law the angel of the Lord, Hie thrust herself unto the wall, and crushed Balaam's foot against the wall: and he smote her again.
x6 And the angel os the Lord went further, and stood in a narrow place, where was no way to turn either to the right hand or to the lest.
27 And when the als saw the angel of the Lo R D, she fell down under Balaam: and Baalani's anger was kindled, and he lmote the al's with a staff.
28 And the Lord opened the mouth of the als, and Hie sold unto Balaam, What have I done unto thee, that thou hast smitten me these three times?

32 And the angel of the Lord said unto him, Wherefore halt thou smitten thine ass these three times? behold, I went out to withstand thee, because thy way is perverse before me:
33 And the ass saw me, and turned from me these three times: unless (he had turned from me, surely now also I had slain thee, and saved her alive.

38 And Balaam said unto Balak, Lo, I am come unto thee: have I now any power at all to say any thing? the word that God putteth in my mouth, that shall I speak.
