And Jehovah opened the mouth of the ass, and she said unto Balaam, What have I done unto thee, that thou hast smitten me these three times?
but he was rebuked for his own transgression: a dumb ass spake with man's voice and stayed the madness of the prophet.
And Jehovah said unto him, Who hath made man's mouth? Or who maketh a man dumb, or deaf, or seeing, or blind? Is it not I, Jehovah?
For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, And the discernment of the discerning will I bring to nought.
