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

Early Church Fathers  Index     

XLV.

“And 4889 Balaam the son of Beor they slew with the sword.” 4890 For, speaking no longer by the Spirit of God, but setting up another law of fornication contrary to the law of God, 4891 this man shall no longer be reckoned as a prophet, but as a soothsayer. For, as he did not continue in the commandment of God, he received the just reward of his evil devices.
