Complete Jewish Bible
19 “God is not a human who lies
or a mortal who changes his mind.
When he says something, he will do it;
when he makes a promise, he will fulfill it.
20 Look, I am ordered to bless;
when he blesses, I can’t reverse it.
21 “No one has seen guilt in Ya‘akov,
or perceived perversity in Isra’el;
Adonai their God is with them
and acclaimed as king among them.
New International Version
19 God is not human,(A) that he should lie,(B)
not a human being, that he should change his mind.(C)
Does he speak and then not act?
Does he promise(D) and not fulfill?
20 I have received a command to bless;(E)
he has blessed,(F) and I cannot change it.(G)
- Numbers 23:21 Or He has not looked on Jacob’s offenses / or on the wrongs found
