The Talking donkey

 

(Numbers 22-24)     

Then to his astonishment, Balaam heard a voice that nobody had ever heard before or since! The Lord opened the mouth of the ass & she spoke!

-"What I have done unto

thee that though has smitten me three times?"

-"Because you behaved badly. If I had a sword in my hand, I'd kill you right now."

-"Kill me? But why? Am I not your ass upon which you have ridden ever since I was yours until this day? Have I ever done you any wrong before?"

Suddenly the Lord opened Balaam's eyes in the Spirit, & he could see what his poor donkey has seen all the time.
