World English Bible
19 God is not a man, that he should lie,
nor a son of man, that he should repent.
Has he said, and he won’t do it?
Or has he spoken, and he won’t make it good?
20 Behold, I have received a command to bless.
He has blessed, and I can’t reverse it.
21 He has not seen iniquity in Jacob.
Neither has he seen perverseness in Israel.
Yahweh his God is with him.
The shout of a king is 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
