A Blessing Instead of a Curse

Reading of the prosecution of Christian Scientists from time to time by those who call upon the courts to fasten some grave charge or criminal act on them, one is reminded of Balak, king of Moab, (Numbers, chapters 22-24), who calls upon Balaam, "Come now therefore, I pray thee, curse me this people; for they are too mighty for me;" . . . "Come now, curse me them; peradventure I shall be able to overcome them, and drive them out." But Balaam says, "How shall I curse, whom God has not cursed? how shall I defy, whom God has not defied?"

Again Balak persists, "Come, I pray thee, I will bring thee unto another place; peradventure it will please God that thou mayest curse me them from thence."
