Similarly, you may ask, how many times are donkeys mentioned in the Bible?
In Numbers 22, three times it is recorded that the angel of the Lord stood in the way of Balaam and his donkey. Three times it is recorded that the donkey saw the angel of the Lord and redirected the path.
what does the donkey symbolize in the Bible? Therefore, what we can then see from this story is that “the donkey” represents: “the authority of God's word”. Meaning, without “the authority” and “base of support” provided by God's word: A prophet would have no power; a king could not rule and the Bible would just be another book.
Secondly, when did God speak through a donkey?
At first, the angel is seen only by the donkey Balaam is riding, which tries to avoid the angel. After Balaam starts punishing the donkey for refusing to move, it is miraculously given the power to speak to Balaam (Numbers 22:28), and it complains about Balaam's treatment.
What is the story of Balaam?
Balaam was a pagan prophet; he worshiped the gods of the land. People believed that when Balaam cursed or blessed someone, it would be so. Balak, king of Moab, called on Balaam to curse the Israelites because he was afraid they would overtake him and his land. Balak offered a reward to Balaam for his services.
