Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

God then expressly forbade him to go with the messengers to curse the Israelites, as the people was blessed; and Balaam was compelled to send back the messengers without attaining their object, because Jehovah had refused him permission to go with them. קבה־לּי, Numbers 22:11, imper. of נקב equals קבב (see at Leviticus 24:11).
