Animals can talk?  Bible Bits at

Oh come on now. Animals talking? What fantasy world am I living in? The next thing you know, I will be talking about unicorns coming to life.

Well, it’s true. Not about the unicorns, but yes, the Bible does reference an animal speaking.

Numbers 22:28-33

28 Then the Lord opened the mouth of the donkey, and she [the donkey] said to Balaam, “What have I done to you that you have struck me these three times?

29 And Balaam said to the donkey, “Because you have abused me. I wish there were a sword in my hand, for now I would kill you.”

30 So the donkey said to Balaam, “Am I not your donkey on which you have ridden, ever since I became yours, to this day? Was I ever disposed to do this to you?” And he said, “No.”

31 Then the Lord opened Balaam’s eyes, and he saw the Angel of the Lord standing in the way with His drawn sword in His hand; and he bowed his head and fell flat on his face.

32 And the Angel of the Lord said to him “Why have you struck your donkey these three times? Behold, I have come out to stand against you, because your way is perverse before Me.

33 The donkey saw Me and turned aside from Me these three times. If she had not turned aside from Me, surely I would also have killed you by now, and let her live.”

Isn’t the Bible fascinating?
