"God came to Balaam at night and said to him, "If these men have come to call for you, arise and go with them, but the word I speak to you-that you shall do. In the morning Balaam arose, saddled his she-donkey and went with the Moabite dignitaries. God's wrath flared because he was going, and an angel of the Lord stationed himself on the road to thwart him."
Why did he get so angry, when he agreed for him to go with them? i came across this while reading the Torah portion this Shabbat and thought it was odd, so i thought i'd ask on here.
(unsure if they were princes, or officials or what, the thing i read it from said princes... i think)
