Numbers 24:22 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

Balaam's fourth and last prophecy is distinguished from the previous ones by the fact that, according to the announcement in Numbers 24:14, it is occupied exclusively with the future, and foretells the victorious supremacy of Israel over all its foes, and the destruction of all the powers of the world. This prophecy is divided into four different prophecies by the fourfold repetition of the words, "he took up his parable" (Numbers 24:15, Numbers 24:20, Numbers 24:21, and Numbers 24:23). The first of these refers to the two nations that were related to Israel, viz., Edom and Moab (Numbers 24:17-19); the second to Amalek, the arch-enemy of Israel (Numbers 24:20); the third to the Kenites, who were allied to Israel (Numbers 24:21 and Numbers 24:22); and the fourth proclaims the overthrow of the great powers of the world (Numbers 24:23 and Numbers 24:24). - The introduction in Numbers 24:15 and Numbers 24:16 is the same as that of the previous prophecy in Numbers 24:3 and Numbers 24:4, except that the words, "he which knew the knowledge of the Most High," are added to the expression, "he that heard the words of God," to show that Balaam possessed the knowledge of the Most High, i.e., that the word of God about to be announced had already been communicated to him, and was not made known to him now for the first time; though without implying that he had received the divine revelation about to be uttered at the same time as those which he had uttered before.
