Balak

When one attempts to curse a blessed entity, the blessed remains blessed and the cursed remains cursed.

Balak, a Moabite king, hires Balaam, a wizard par-excellence, on retainer to curse the Jewish people. Balaam’s ride, his donkey, tells him that going down this path is not a very good idea. Three times, the prophet Balaam tries to cure the people, and three times he ends up blessing them. Some of the deepest prophecies and blessings, like the coming of the redemption, are issued from Balaam’s mouth. The Israelites are enticed by the daughters of Moab, idolizing immoral impurities. Pinchas slays a statesmen who publicly undermined the Jewish people and their purpose.
