Perhaps I will be able to attack them and drive them out." 12 God said to Balaam, "You will not go with them; you will not curse the people, because they [are] blessed." 13 Balaam got up in the morning, and he said to the princes of Balak, "Go to your land, because Yahweh refused to allow me to go with you."
