Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Numbers 23:21

_ _ He hath not beheld iniquity in Jacob — Many sins were observed and punished in this people. But no such universal and hopeless apostasy had as yet appeared, to induce God to abandon or destroy them.

_ _ the Lord his God is with him — has a favor for them.

_ _ and the shout of a king is among them — such joyful acclamations as of a people rejoicing in the presence of a victorious prince.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Numbers 23:13-30.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Numbers 23:21

Iniquity — Not such as in the Canaanites: Such as he will punish with a curse, with utter destruction. The Lord is with him — He hath a favour for this people, and will defend and save them. The shout of a king — That is, such joyful and triumphant shouts as those wherewith a people congratulate the approach and presence of their King: when he appears among them upon some solemn occasion, or when he returns from battle with victory. This expression implies God's being their King and ruler, and their abundant security and confidence in him.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

He hath not beheld iniquity in Jacob, neither hath he seen perverseness in Israel: the LORD his God [is] with him, and the (i) shout of a king [is] among them.
