Hi Steven. I'm unsure whether this verse is what you're looking for - it's the only one I could think of.

Numbers 24:21,22: "And he looked on the Kenites, and took up his parable, and said, Strong is thy dwellingplace, and thou puttest thy nest in a rock. Nevertheless the Kenite shall be wasted, until Asshur shall carry thee away captive."

This is Balaam speaking after receiving a vision & hearing the following words from God (v4: "(who) heard the words of God, which saw the vision of the Almighty, falling into a trance, but having his eyes open"). When we get to the part concerning the Kenites, Balaam took up this parable (parable here, according to the Hebrew lexicon & specific to these words from Balaam is, 'a prophetic figurative discourse'). For the same Hebrew word ('mashal'), has a variety of definitions, but particular applications.

So verse 22, seems to be the prophetic utterance by God through Balaam about the dismal end of the Kenites.
