Ki Tetse

  
BackForward
 23:5
23:5 This is because they did not greet you with bread and water when you were on the way out of Egypt, and also because they hired Balaam son of Beor from Pethor in Aram Naharaim to curse you.
Al-devar asher lo-kidmu etchem balechem uvamayim baderech betsetchem miMitsrayim va'asher sachar aleycha et-Bil'am ben-Be'or miPtor Aram Naharayim lekaleleka.

Balaam...
  Numbers 22:5.

Pethor
  Ibid.

Aram Naharaim
