Reading the future?
There is a people that dwells apart,
Not reckoned among the nations . . .
What the Hell — you hired a hitman to curse me?
The Book of Numbers 22–25 (also known as “In the Wilderness”) presents an intricate and carefully crafted story about Balak, the king of Moab, who seeks out the services of a well-known soothsayer, Balaam, to curse the Israelites. Balaam does not curse them, but instead blesses them and curses their enemies. The story ends with Balak and Balaam each returning to their homes (24:25).
But is that the end of the story?
Hardly . . .
