Parallel Verses
New American Standard Bible
So he sent messengers to Balaam the son of Beor, at Pethor, which is near the River, in the land of the sons of his people, to call him, saying, "Behold, a people came out of Egypt; behold, they cover the surface of the land, and they are living opposite me.

King James Bible
He sent messengers therefore unto Balaam the son of Beor to Pethor, which is by the river of the land of the children of his people, to call him, saying, Behold, there is a people come out from Egypt: behold, they cover the face of the earth, and they abide over against me:

Holman Christian Standard Bible
he sent messengers to Balaam son of Beor at Pethor, which is by the Euphrates in the land of his people. Balak said to him: "Look, a people has come out of Egypt; they cover the surface of the land and are living right across from me.

Pethor. Dr. Kennicott justly remarks, that the description now given of Balaam's residence, instead of being particular, agrees with any place, in any country where there is a river; for he lived by `Pethor, which is by the river of the land of his people.' But was Petor, then, near the Nile in Egypt? Or in Canaan, near Jordan? Or in Mesopotamia, near the Euphrates, and belonging to the Ammonites? This last was in fact the case; and therefore, it is well that twelve Hebrews MSS.(with two of De Rossi's) confirm the Samaritan text here, in reading instead of Ammo, his people,' Ammon, with the Syriac and the Syriac and Vulgate versions. Houbigant justly contends for this reading; and necessity urges the propriety of adopting it: and it thus agrees with
