Why did Bil'am change from "Arah li!" (which is what Balak said) to "Kabah li!"

Rashi: Because "Kabah" is a stronger expression of curse than "Arah"

2)

Why did Bil'am change from "Min ha'Aretz!" (which is what Balak said) to "Vegerashtiv!"

1.

Rashi: Because "Vegerashtiv!" which means 'I will destroy them from the world', is a stronger expression that "Va'agorshenu min ha'Aretz", which means merely that he will drive them out of the land. 1
