Summary of Today's Chumash
In the second aliyah Bilam sends word with Balak's messengers that G-d doesn't give him permission to go with them. Actually, Rashi says that Bilam hinted that he would go with messengers who were more honorable than those sent the first time. Balak then sends more honorable messengers to Bilam and promises him fancy rewards. Bilam discusses the matter again with G-d, and now G-d says that he may go, but only to speak such words that G-d tells him to.
