Then Balak the son of Zippor, king of Moab, arose and fought against Israel: he sent and called Balaam the son of Beor to curse you, Bible

“Then Balak the son of Zippor, king of Moab.” The army of Israel traveled around Moab and then conquered the territories north of it; the Amorite kingdoms of Sihon and Og. Then they turned south again and camped just east of the Jordan River and across from Jericho in the plains of Moab (Num. 22:1).

“arose and fought against Israel: he sent.” Balak “fought against Israel,” but initially the fighting was in the spiritual world; curses against Israel.

“called Balaam the son of Beor to curse you.” This record starts in Numbers 22:1-6.
