CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
22:20 If the men come - On this condition he was to go.
But stay here one more night, and I will see if the LORD has anything else to say to me."
But the angel of the LORD told Balaam, "Go with these men, but say only what I tell you to say." So Balaam went on with Balak's officials.
The LORD gave Balaam a message for King Balak. Then he said, "Go back to Balak and give him my message."
But Balaam replied, "I will speak only the message that the LORD puts in my mouth."
And the LORD met Balaam and gave him a message. Then he said, "Go back to Balak and give him my message."
the message of one who hears the words of God, who sees a vision from the Almighty, who bows down with eyes wide open:
'Even if Balak were to give me his palace filled with silver and gold, I would be powerless to do anything against the will of the LORD.' I told you that I could say only what the LORD says!
