Numbers 22:3-5 Lexham English Bible (LEB)
3 and Moab was very terrified in the presence of the people because they[a] were numerous; and Moab dreaded the presence of the Israelites.[b] 4 And Moab said to the elders of Midian, “Now the crowd will lick up all around us, like a bull devours the grass of the field.” And Balak son of Zippor was king of Moab at that time. 5 He sent messengers to Balaam son of Beor at Pethor, which is by the river,[c] in the land of the children of his people, to summon him, saying, “Look! A people went out from Egypt. Look! They cover the surface of the land;[d] they are about to dwell opposite me.
