Commentary
Barnes' Notes on the Bible

Balak seems to hope that the prophet's words in Numbers 23:10 reflected the impression conveyed by the scene before him at the moment of the augury; and so that the sight of a mere few straggling Israelites in the utmost part of the camp might induce a different estimate of their resources and prospects.
