 23:6
 23:7
23:6 Of course, God did not consent to listen to Balaam, and God your Lord transformed the curse into a blessing for you, since God your Lord loves you.
Velo-avah Adonay Eloheycha lishmoa el-Bil'am vayahafoch Adonay Eloheycha lecha et-hakelalah livrachah ki ahevcha Adonay Eloheycha.
23:7 You must never seek peace or anything good [with these nations], as long as you exist.
Lo-tidrosh shlomam vetovatam kol-yameycha le'olam.



Commentary:

You must never seek peace
  Even when encountering them in battle, as in Deuteronomy 20:10 (Sifri).
