28. Rabbi Yosi says, If so, Balak was a wise man, SINCE HE WAS AWARE THAT THE SATAN TRANSFORMS INTO THE FORM OF AN OX. He said to him most certainly HE WAS WISE. Similarly, he needed to know all the habits of that ox and if he had not been familiar with them, he would not have been able to perform his witchcraft and magic. Rabbi Yosi said, That is certainly so, and you spoke well. The might of that ox is, when they proclaim about the grain crops... (SOMETHING MISSING) ...all these days that are being proclaimed, and all the days that they proclaim about spirits of people. They are the days of Nissan and the days of Tishrei, as we have already learned.
