Biblical Character
    Born in Saudi Arabia
    Pagan prophet mentioned in the Old Testament
    Hired by a Midianite king to curse the <4471>Israelites
    He was a prophet for hire and gave blessings, curses, and predictions to whoever paid him. Just like today's televangelists.
    He was hired by the Midianite king to curse Israel, but instead, he called a blessing upon them because God told him to.
    The Koran hammers him, comparing him to a dog.
    Even though he knew better, he advised the Midianites to try to overcome the Israelites with sex, parties, and converting them to the worship of Baal.
    His name means either foreigner or glutton.
    He told the truth in his dealings with the Israelites.
    He had a talking donkey.
    He was stoned, burned, beheaded, and strangled by the Israelites.
    He serves as an excellent warning against and about prophets who are out for money.
    He was blind in one eye and lame in one foot.
