What ever happened to Balak after the Bil'am affair? Bil'am is referred to often as Bil'am HaRasha' (the wicked), and he is blamed for the entire encounter as well as the Ba'al Pe'or incident. But wasn't Balak to blame for conceiving of the idea of cursing Bnei Yisrael? I thought the Ba'al Pe'or idea was the Plan B of that effort, which I'd think would at least give him a share of the blame there as well. Did he repent? Do we know anything of his descendants?
