You probably thought that I forgot my favourite part of Numbers that I was running as a series before Christmas. Well, actually I did, but I remembered, so here's the concluding part:
And now beholde, I goe vnto my people: come therefore, and I will aduertise thee, what this people shall doe to thy people in the latter dayes.
And hee tooke vp his parable, and said, Balaam the sonne of Beor hath said and the man eyes are open hath said:
He hath said which heard the words of God, and knewe the knowledge of the most High, sawe the vision of the Almightie, falling into a trance, but hauing his eyes open.
I shall see him, but not now: I shall behold him, but not nigh: There shall come a starre out of Iacob, and a Scepter shall rise out of Israel, and shall smite the corners of Moab and destroy all the children of Sheth.
And Edom shall bee a possession, Seir also shall be a possession for his enemies, and Israel shall doe valiantly.
Out of Iacob shall come he that shall haue dominion, and shall destroy him that remaineth of the citie.
And when he looked on Amalek, he tooke vp his parable, and sayd Amalek the first of the nations, but his latter end that hee perish for euer.
And hee looked on the Kenites, and tooke vp his parable, and saide, Strong is thy dwelling place, and thou puttest thy nest in a rocke: Neuertheless, Kain shall be wasted, vntil Asshur shal carie thee away captiue. And he tooke vp his parable, and said, Alas! Who shall liue when God doeth this?
And shippes from the coast of Chittim, and shal afflict Asshur, and shall afflict Eber, and hee also shall perish for euer.
And Balaam rose vp, and went and returned to his place: and Balak also went his way.
