And the remnant of Jacob will be among the nations, in the midst of many peoples, like a lion among the beasts of the forest, like a young lion among the flocks of sheep, which if he passes through, treads down and tears in pieces, and there is no deliverer.
balak “Balak son of Zippur”
Numbers 22:2 – 25:9
Zimri, one of the tribe of Shimon (whose color is green), challenged Moses’ authority by having intercourse brazenly in front of the Tabernacle with a Midianite woman who practiced idol worship which included defecation before the statue. Pinchas of the tribe of Levi, incensed by this sacrilege, speared both of them, but miraculously no blood was spilled (keeping this from becoming a revenge crime.)
Above them is the sorcerer priest Balaam who had sent the Midianite women to seduce the Hebrews and had also been hired by Balak, their king, to curse the Hebrews with his magic. When he set out under the morning star, Balaam’s she-ass balked seeing an angel blocking the tight stone path with a flaming sword (ten flames for each Kabbalisitic Sefirot) and then the she-ass spoke out loud, chastising Balaam whose avarice was misleading him to curse the Hebrews.
