The Talking Donkey in the Bible

Maybe you thought Disney's Eeyore from Winnie The Pooh or even DreamWork's Donkey from Shrek was one of the first talking donkeys right? Well ... You may want to look again. The Bible shows us there was a talking donkey long before Eeyore or Donkey came out. #Donkey #Eeyore

Numbers 22:28-30 NKJV

28 Then the Lord opened the mouth of the donkey, and she said to Balaam, “What have I done to you, that you have struck me these three times?”

29 And Balaam said to the donkey, “Because you have abused me. I wish there were a sword in my hand, for now I would kill you!”

30 So the donkey said to Balaam, “Am I not your donkey on which you have ridden, ever since I became yours, to this day? Was I ever disposed to do this to you?”

And he said, “No.”

God used the donkey to talk to Balaam. If you read on in this chapter, you will see that just after that, the Lord opened Balaam’s eyes. He had an Angel of the Lord appear to Balaam and asked why he struck his donkey. The Angel of the Lord said the donkey saw me, and was turning aside, but you struck it three times. If the donkey didn’t turn away, then I would have killed you. Then Balaam knew he sinned and repented.

The Angel of the Lord, was usually meaning an appearance of God Himself.

To see the whole story read Numbers chapter 22 through 25.
