The Gemmorah claims that Bilam was given as a prophet to the nations comparable to Moses.
I, however see some unfairness in this choice:
Moses was born good - he was already circumsized and the whole house was filled with light (apparently everybody recognized that).
Bilam was agreeably a greedy sinner (acc. to practically all the interpreters)
How was this choice fair? How the selection of a sinner to represent the nations can be compared to the selection of Moses?
