Less or more: Numbers 22.18 VOTD

“Balaam replied to the servants of Balak, ‘Even if Balak would give me his palace full of silver and gold, I could not transgress the commandment of the Lord my God to do less or more.'”

Numbers 22.18

Balaam understood well his limits, but he wound up going with Balak, perhaps in hope of finding a way to receive the king’s riches.

In the restriction of God’s command is the freedom to reject wrong motivations.
