Hebrew translation:

457. רַבִּי אַבָּא אָמַר, וַיִּקָּר – כְּמוֹ שֶׁנֶּאֱמַר (תהלים קמז) לִפְנֵי קָרָתוֹ מִי יַעֲמֹד. הוּא הָיָה עָתִיד שֶׁבְּאוֹתוֹ דּוֹרוֹן יוּכַל לְיִשְׂרָאֵל. מַה כָּתוּב? וַיִּקָּר אֱלֹהִים. קֵרֵר עַצְמוֹ מִמַּה שֶּׁהָיָה חוֹשֵׁב, וַיִּקָּר אֱלֹהִים, כְּמוֹ שֶׁנִּתְבָּאֵר, שֶׁהִתְעוֹרֵר עָלָיו מִצַּד הַטֻּמְאָה.
458. רַבִּי אֶלְעָזָר אָמַר, וַיִּקָּר – בִּלְעָם חָשַׁב שֶׁבְּאוֹתוֹ דּוֹרוֹן יִכָּנֵס לְהַזִּיק אֶת יִשְׂרָאֵל, וְהַקָּדוֹשׁ בָּרוּךְ הוּא עָקַר אוֹתוֹ מִלִּפְנֵי אוֹתוֹ דּוֹרוֹן. וְעָקַר אֶת בִּלְעָם מִמַּה שֶּׁחָשַׁב, וְעָקַר (אוֹתוֹ מֵאוֹתָהּ דַּרְגָּה) אֶת אוֹתָהּ דַּרְגָּה. זֶהוּ שֶׁכָּתוּב וַיִּקָּר, כְּמוֹ שֶׁנֶּאֱמַר (משלי ל) יִקְּרוּהָ עֹרְבֵי נַחַל. אָמַר לוֹ: רָשָׁע! אֵינְךָ כְּדַאי לְהִתְקַשֵּׁר אֵלַי וּלְהִכָּנֵס לְפָנַי. דּוֹרוֹנְךָ נִמְסָר לַכְּלָבִים.


Zohar Balak
Continued from previous DZ
Psalm 147:17
“מַשְׁלִיךְ קַרְחוֹ כְפִתִּים לִפְנֵי קָרָתוֹ מִי יַעֲמֹד.”
“He casts out His hail like morsels; Who can stand before His cold (קָרָתוֹ)?”
Balaam was confident that his gift would give him an opening to go against Israel. Rabbi Aba says that “his cold” “קָרָתוֹ” and “וַיִּקָּר” are related. In addition to the side of impurity that comes from Balaam, God made Balaam’s gift ‘cold,’ meaning without spiritual influence.

Rabbi Elazar said “וַיִּקָּר” means that Balaam thought that with that gift, he could harm Israel, and the Holy One Blessed be He uprooted that gift from before him. And uprooted Balaam from what he thought. He uprooted him from that level. This is what is said,
Proverbs 30:17
“עַיִן תִּלְעַג לְאָב וְתָבוּז לִיקֲּהַת אֵם יִקְּרוּהָ עֹרְבֵי נַחַל וְיֹאכְלוּהָ בְנֵי נָשֶׁר.”
“The eye that mocks his father, And scorns obedience to his mother, The ravens of the valley will pick it out (יִקְּרוּהָ), And the young eagles will eat it.”
Balaam was rejected from connecting to Hashem, and his gift was given to animals.
