Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Numbers 22:34-35

_ _ I have sinned ... if it displease thee, I will get me back again — Notwithstanding this confession, he evinced no spirit of penitence, as he speaks of desisting only from the outward act. The words “go with the men” was a mere withdrawal of further restraint, but the terms in which leave was given are more absolute and peremptory than those in Numbers 22:20.

Matthew Henry's Commentary
