The New Testament quote, "the dumb ass speaking with man's voice forbad the madness of the prophet" (2 Peter 2:16) confirms that this was an actual miracle of God. The omnipotent Lord miraculously enabled the ass to speak. In addition to the immediate reason of rebuking the prophet, this miracle perhaps is intended to give us an insight into God's care and concern for "dumb" animals. They also are "living souls" and have "the breath of life" (Genesis 1:21; 7:22).
