And Yahweh put a word into the mouth of Balaam, - and said - Return unto Balak, and, thus, shalt thou speak.
A prophet, will I raise up unto them, out of the midst of their brethren, like unto thee, - and I will put my words in his mouth, so shall he speak unto them whatsoever I shall command him.
Then Yahweh put forth his hand, and touched my mouth, - and Yahweh said unto me, Lo! I have put my words in thy mouth.
And Yahweh met Balaam, and put a word into his mouth, - and said - Return unto Balak and thus shalt thou speak.
Therefore have I put my words in thy mouth, And with the shadow of my hand, have I covered thee, - To plant the heavens, and To lay the foundations of the earth, and To say unto Zion My people, thou art!
And as for me, this, shall be my covenant with them, Saith Yahweh: My spirit that is upon thee, And my words which I have put in thy mouth, - Shall not he taken out of thy mouth - Nor out of the mouth of thy seed. Nor out of the mouth of thy seeds seed, Saith Yahweh, From henceforth even unto times age-abiding.
And God came in unto Balaam, by night, and said unto him - If, to call thee, the men have come in, arise go with them, - But only, the thing that I shall speak unto thee, that, shalt thou do.
And the messenger of Yahweh said unto Balaam - Go with the men: Only the word that I shall speak unto thee, that, shalt thou speak. So Balaam went his way with the princes of Balak.
To man, belong the preparations of the heart, but, from Yahweh, cometh the answer of the tongue.
A man's heart, deviseth his way, but, Yahweh, directeth his steps.
