Balak

 23:30
 24:1
24:1 When Balaam realized that God desired to bless Israel, he did not seek out the occult forces as he had done before. Instead, he set his gaze toward the desert.
Vayar Bil'am ki tov be'eyney Adonay levarech et-Yisra'el velo-halach kefa'am-befa'am likrat nechashim vayashet el-hamidbar panav.



Commentary:

desert
  Some say the Western Plains of Moab (Chizzkuni). It is also possible that he stood contemplating the Syrian Desert, which would have been visible toward the east.
