Ante-Nicene Fathers, Vol I:
IRENÆUS: XXV.

Early Church Fathers  Index     

XXV.

“To inflict vengeance from the Lord on Midian.” 4837 For this man (Balaam), when he speaks no longer in the Spirit of God, but contrary to God’s law, by setting up a different law with regard to fornication, 4838 is certainly not then to be counted as a prophet, but as a soothsayer. For he who did not keep to the commandment of God, received the just recompense of his own evil devices. 4839
