Unless, perhaps, thou art better than Balac, the son of Sephor, king of Moab: or canst shew that he strove against Israel, and fought against him,

Meinest du, daß du besser Recht habest denn Balak, der Sohn Zipors, der Moabiter König? Hat derselbe auch je gerechtet oder gestritten wider Israel,
nisi forte melior es Balac filio Sepphor rege Moab aut docere potes quod iurgatus sit contra Israhel et pugnaverit contra eum
