Numbers 24:21-25

Balaam’s Sixth Message

Then he saw the Kenites and spoke his message:

“Your dwelling place is secure,
    your nest is set in a rock;
yet you Kenites will be destroyed
    when Ashur takes you captive.”

Balaam’s Seventh Message

Then he spoke his message:

“Alas! Who can live when God does this?[a]
    Ships will come from the shores of Cyprus;
they will subdue Ashur and Eber,
    but they too will come to ruin.”

Then Balaam got up and returned home, and Balak went his own way.
