The Unchangeableness of God
"Now, therefore, please come, curse this people for me since they are too mighty for me; perhaps I may be able to defeat them and drive them out of the land. For I know that he whom you bless is blessed, and he whom you curse is cursed."
God said to Balaam, "Do not go with them; you shall not curse the people, for they are blessed."
He took up his discourse and said, "From Aram Balak has brought me, Moab's king from the mountains of the East, 'Come curse Jacob for me, And come, denounce Israel!'
Like a sparrow in its flitting, like a swallow in its flying, So a curse without cause does not alight.
