O my people, remember now what Balak king of Moab consulted and what Balaam the son of Beor answered him from Shittim unto Gilgal: that ye may know the righteousness of the LORD.
And Israel abode in Shittim, and the people began to fornicate with the daughters of Moab,
And the LORD said unto Joshua, Today I have rolled away the reproach of Egypt from off you. Therefore, the name of the place is called Gilgal unto this day.
Because of the noise of archers, taken from among those that draw water, there they shall retell the righteousnesses of the LORD, even the righteousnesses of his villages in Israel. Now shall the people of the LORD go down to the gates.
And the people came up out of the Jordan on the tenth day of the first month and camped in Gilgal, on the east side of Jericho.
And the sons of Israel set forward and pitched in the plains of Moab on this side Jordan in front of Jericho.
And on the next day, Balak took Balaam and brought him up into the high places of Baal, and from there he saw the utmost part of the people.
And Balak said unto him, Come, I pray thee, with me unto another place, from which thou may see them; thou hast seen but the utmost part of them and hast not seen them all; and from there thou shalt curse them for me.
And Balak said unto Balaam, Come, I pray thee, I will bring thee unto another place; peradventure it will please God that thou may curse them for me from there.
And they also slew the kings of Midian among the rest of those that were slain: namely, Evi and Rekem and Zur and Hur and Reba, five kings of Midian; they also slew Balaam, the son of Beor, with the sword.
Behold, these caused the sons of Israel through the counsel of Balaam to commit trespass against the LORD in the matter of Peor for which there was a plague among the congregation of the LORD.
Finally they pitched by the Jordan, from Bethjesimoth even unto Abelshittim in the plains of Moab.
And thou shalt remember all the way by which the LORD thy God led thee these forty years in the wilderness to afflict thee and to prove thee to know what was in thine heart, whether thou would keep his commandments, or not.
But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God, for it is he that gives thee the power to get wealth that he may confirm his covenant which he swore unto thy fathers, as it is this day.
Remember, and forget not, how thou hast provoked the LORD thy God to wrath in the wilderness; from the day that thou didst depart out of the land of Egypt until ye came unto this place, ye have been rebellious against the LORD.
Thou shalt eat no leavened bread with it; seven days shalt thou eat unleavened bread therewith, even the bread of affliction; for thou didst come forth out of the land of Egypt in haste; that thou may remember the day when thou didst come forth out of the land of Egypt all the days of thy life.
because they did not meet you with bread and with water in the way when ye came forth out of Egypt and because they hired against thee Balaam, the son of Beor of Pethor of Mesopotamia, to curse thee.
All these kings and their lands Joshua took at one time because the LORD God of Israel fought for Israel.
Then Balak, the son of Zippor, king of the Moabites, arose and warred against Israel and sent and called Balaam, the son of Beor, to curse you.
Now, therefore, stand still that I may contend with you before the LORD of all the righteousnesses of the LORD which he did to you and to your fathers.
Extend thy mercy unto those that know thee and thy righteousness to the upright in heart.
My mouth shall show forth thy righteousness and thy salvation all the day, for I know not the numbers thereof.
and thy righteousness, O God, unto excellence because thou hast done great things; O God, who is like unto thee!
Bless the LORD, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless the name of his holiness.
Zain He has made his wonderful works to be remembered; Cheth The LORD is gracious and merciful.
By thy name, O LORD, thou shalt give me life; by thy righteousness thou shalt bring my soul out of trouble.
whom God purposed for reconciliation through faith in his blood for the manifestation of his righteousness, for the remission of sins that are past, by the patience of God,
Therefore remember that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who were called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh, which is made by hands,
who forsaking the right way have erred, having followed the way of Balaam the son of Beor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness,
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward and perished in the gainsaying of Core.
But I have a few things against thee because thou hast there those that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumblingblock before the sons of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols and to commit fornication.
