So, here’s what really went down.  God told him directly to not curse Israel, but he blatantly disobeyed, even with his own donkey verbally arguing with him.  Please…don’t be like Balaam, hahaha!

When this goofy guy eventually tried to curse the people, his own words turned on him, spewing out blessings instead.  So, he tried something else and finally succeeded in troubling the nation somehow.  What did he do to finally accomplish his mission?

-Nothing, he never succeeded.-

-He died trying.-

-He caused Israel to sin, cursing themselves.-

-They just attacked them.-
