* I shall see him.
The Targum of Onkelos translates this passage in the following
manner: "I shall see him, but not now; I shall behold him,
but he is not near. When a king shall arise from the house of
Jacob, and the Messiah be anointed from the house of Israel;
he shall slay the princes of Moab, and rule over all the
children of men." The marginal references will direct the
reader to the fulfilment of these remarkable prophecies.
