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.
