 24:13
24:11 Now go home as fast as you can! I promised to honor you, but God won't let you get any honor!'
Ve'atah vrach-lecha el-mekomecha amarti kabed achabedcha vehineh mena'acha Adonay mikavod.
24:12 Balaam said to Balak, 'My exact words to the messengers you sent me were,
Vayomer Bil'am el-Balak halo gam el-mal'acheycha asher-shalachta elay dibarti lemor.
24:13 'Even if Balak gives me his whole palace full of gold and silver, I cannot do anything good or bad on my own that would violate God's word.' Isn't that true? I must proclaim whatever God declares.
Im-yiten-li Valak melo veyto kesef vezahav lo uchal la'avor et-pi Adonay la'asot tovah o ra'ah milibi asher-yedaber Adonay oto adaber.



Commentary:

Now go home...
