Numbers 22:29 Parallel
CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
22:29 Balaam said - Balaam was not much terrified with the ass's speaking, because perhaps he was accustomed to converse with evil spirits, who appeared to him and discoursed with him in the shape of such creatures. Perhaps he was so blinded by passion, that he did not consider the strangeness of the thing.
For from the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, all sexual immorality, theft, lying, and slander.
"But I am the same donkey you have ridden all your life," the donkey answered. "Have I ever done anything like this before?" "No," Balaam admitted.
The godly care for their animals, but the wicked are always cruel.
