Behold, I have received commandment to bless: and he has blessed; and I cannot reverse it.
Read Chapter 23
George Leo Haydock
To bless, not by my own intention, or by that of Balac, but by God, who hath only suffered me to proceed on my journey, on condition that I would declare his will, chap. xxii. 35. (Haydock)
Hebrew, "Behold, I have received an order to bless "or, with the Septuagint, "I have been chosen to pronounce a blessing; I will bless, and will not revoke it, or leave off. "(Calmet)
