O my people, remember, now, what Balak, King of Moab, consulted,
and what Balaam, the son of Beor, answered him, from Shittim
unto Gilgal ; that ye may know the righteousness of the Lord.
Wherewith shall I come before the Lord, and bow myself before
the most high God ? Shall I come before him with burnt-offerings,
Will the Lord be pleased with thou-

my first-born for my transgression ; the fruit of my body for the
sin of my soul ?-Micah vi. 5–7.
