I perceive him, but far in the distant future. A star will rise from Jacob; a scepter will emerge from Israel.”
  32. Baal, represented by a bull, was the principle god in Canaan. In Num. 25, how did the Moabites deceive and entice the Israelite men into the worship of Baal? Sexual lust (probably temple prostitutes, the idea of Balaam according to 31:16)
