Chapter 33

1

And this [is] the blessing, wherewith Moses the man of God blessed14 the children of Israel before his death.

2

And he said,4 The LORD came1 from Sinai, and rose up1 from Seir unto them; he shined forth52 from mount Paran, and he came1 with ten thousands of saints: from his right hand [went] a fiery law 1881 799 for them.

3

Yea, he loved5 the people; all his saints [are] in thy hand: and they sat down27 at thy feet; [every one] shall receive4 of thy words.

7

And this [is the blessing] of Judah: and he said,4 Hear,3 LORD, the voice of Judah, and bring55 him unto his people: let his hands be sufficient for him; and be thou an help [to him] from his enemies.

8

And of Levi he said,1 [Let] thy Thummim and thy Urim [be] with thy holy one, whom thou didst prove14 at Massah, [and with] whom thou didst strive4 at the waters of Meribah;

9

Who said6 unto his father and to his mother, I have not seen1 him; neither did he acknowledge52 his brethren, nor knew1 his own children: for they have observed1 thy word, and kept4 thy covenant.

10

They shall teach55 Jacob thy judgments, and Israel thy law: they shall put4 incense before thee, and whole burnt sacrifice upon thine altar.

11

Bless,16 LORD, his substance, and accept4 the work of his hands: smite3 through the loins of them that rise5 against him, and of them that hate18 him, that they rise4 not again.

12

[And] of Benjamin he said,1 The beloved of the LORD shall dwell4 in safety by him; [and the LORD] shall cover6 him all the day long, and he shall dwell1 between his shoulders.

13

And of Joseph he said,1 Blessed30 of the LORD [be] his land, for the precious things of heaven, for the dew, and for the deep that coucheth6 beneath,

14

And for the precious fruits [brought forth] by the sun, and for the precious things put forth by the moon,

15

And for the chief things of the ancient mountains, and for the precious things of the lasting hills,

16

And for the precious things of the earth and fulness thereof, and [for] the good will of him that dwelt6 in the bush: let [the blessing] come4 upon the head of Joseph, and upon the top of the head of him [that was] separated from his brethren.

17

His glory [is like] the firstling of his bullock, and his horns [are like] the horns of unicorns: with them he shall push17 the people together to the ends of the earth: and they [are] the ten thousands of Ephraim, and they [are] the thousands of Manasseh.

18

And of Zebulun he said,1 Rejoice,3 Zebulun, in thy going out;2 and, Issachar, in thy tents.

19

They shall call4 the people unto the mountain; there they shall offer4 sacrifices of righteousness: for they shall suck4 [of] the abundance of the seas, and [of] treasures7 hid7 in the sand.

20

And of Gad he said,1 Blessed7 [be] he that enlargeth56 Gad: he dwelleth1 as a lion, and teareth1 the arm with the crown of the head.

21

And he provided4 the first part for himself, because there, [in] a portion of the lawgiver,26 [was he] seated;7 and he came4 with the heads of the people, he executed1 the justice of the LORD, and his judgments with Israel.

22

And of Dan he said,1 Dan [is] a lion's whelp: he shall leap17 from Bashan.

25

Thy shoes [shall be] iron and brass; and as thy days, [so shall] thy strength [be].

26

[There is] none like unto the God of Jeshurun, [who] rideth6 upon the heaven in thy help, and in his excellency on the sky.

27

The eternal God [is thy] refuge, and underneath [are] the everlasting arms: and he shall thrust out17 the enemy6 from before thee; and shall say,4 Destroy54 [them].

28

Israel then shall dwell4 in safety alone: the fountain of Jacob [shall be] upon a land of corn and wine; also his heavens shall drop down4 dew.

29

Happy [art] thou, O Israel: who [is] like unto thee, O people saved12 by the LORD, the shield of thy help, and who [is] the sword of thy excellency! and thine enemies6 shall be found liars11 unto thee; and thou shalt tread4 upon their high places.
