Rabbi David Sperling

Sivan 13, 5782
Question
you said "Balaam said to him: You shall not seek their peace or their welfare all the days (see Deuteronomy 23:7)" ^why did Balaam say this? If Balaam was dead, why would he still say this? Has his soul been completely destroyed though or, where is Bilaam now? Is he gone forever? thank you
Answer
Shalom, Thanks for writing back. In order to gain more understanding of the piece of Talmud we sent you, I suggest you try to learn it “inside”. There are many websites with commentaries in English on the Talmud. Enjoy. The simple reading of the Talmud we quoted implies that Bilaim’s soul is still being punished in the spiritual worlds beyond this physical world we live in. Blessings.
