“And God met Balaam, and he said vnto him, I haue prepared seuen altars, and I haue offered vpon euery altar a bullocke and a ramme.”
King James Version (KJV)
1. And Balaam saide vnto Balak, Build me here seuen Altars, and prepare mee here seuen oxen, and seuen rammes. 2. And Balak did as Balaam had spoken, and Balak & Balaam offered on euery altar a bullocke and a ramme. 3. And Balaam said vnto Balak, Stand by thy burnt offring, and I wil goe: peraduenture the Lord will come to meete mee; and whatsoeuer he sheweth me, I will tell thee. And he went to an high place. 4. And God met Balaam, and he said vnto him, I haue prepared seuen altars, and I haue offered vpon euery altar a bullocke and a ramme. 5. And the Lord put a word in Balaams mouth, and said, Returne vnto Balak, & thus thou shalt speake. 6. And he returned vnto him, and loe, he stood by his burnt sacrifice, hee, and all the Princes of Moab. 7. And he tooke vp his parable, and said, Balak the King of Moab hath brought mee from Aram, out of the mountaines of the East, saying, Come, curse me Iacob, and come, defie Israel.
