Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Numbers 23:18-19

_ _ Rise up — As Balak was already standing (Numbers 23:17), this expression is equivalent to “now attend to me.” The counsels and promises of God respecting Israel are unchangeable; and no attempt to prevail on Him to reverse them will succeed, as they may with a man.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Numbers 23:13-30.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Numbers 23:18

Rise up — This word implies the diligent attention required; rouse up thyself and carefully mind what I say.
