1: And this [is] the with which Moses, the man of God, blessed the children of Israel before his death. 2: And he said, the LORD came from Sinai, and rose up from Seir to them; he shined forth from mount Paran, and he came with ten thousands of saints: from his right hand [went] a fiery law for them. 3: Yea, he loved the people; all his saints [are] in thy hand: and they sat down at thy feet; [every one] shall receive of thy words. 4: Moses commanded us a law; [even] the inheritance of the congregation of Jacob. 5: And he was king in Jeshurun, when the heads of the people [and] the tribes of Israel were assembled. 6: Let Reuben live, and not die; and let [not] his men be few. 7: And this [is the blessing] of Judah: and he said, Hear, LORD, the voice of Judah, and bring him to his people: let his hands be sufficient for him, and be thou a help [to him] from his enemies. 8: And of Levi he said, [Let] thy Thummim and thy Urim [be] with thy holy one, whom thou didst prove at Massah, [and with] whom thou didst strive at the waters of Meribah; 9: Who said to his father and to his mother, I have not seen him, neither did he acknowledge his brethren, nor know his own children: for they have observed thy word, and kept thy covenant. 10: They shall teach Jacob thy judgments, and Israel thy law; they shall put incense before thee, and whole burnt sacrifice upon thy altar. 11: Bless, LORD, his substance, and accept the work of his hands: smite through the loins of them that rise against him, and of them that hate him, that they rise not again. 12: [And] of Benjamin he said, The beloved of the LORD shall dwell in safety by him; [and the LORD] shall cover him all the day long, and he shall dwell between his shoulders. 13: And of Joseph he said, Blessed of the LORD [be] his land, for the precious things of heaven, for the dew, and for the deep that coucheth 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 fullness of it, and [for] the good will of him that dwelt in the bush; let [the blessing] come 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 push 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, Rejoice, Zebulun, in thy going out; and Issachar, in thy tents. 19: They shall call the people to the mountain; there they shall offer sacrifices of righteousness: for they shall suck [of] the abundance of the seas, and [of] treasures hid in the sand. 20: And of Gad he said: Blessed [be] he that enlargeth Gad: he dwelleth as a lion, and teareth the arm with the crown of the head. 21: And he provided the first part for himself, because there, [in] a portion of the lawgiver, [was he] seated: and he came with the heads of the people, he executed the justice of the LORD, and his judgments with Israel. 22: And of Dan he said, Dan [is] a lion's whelp: he shall leap from Bashan. 23: And of Naphtali he said, O Naphtali, satisfied with favor, and full with the blessing of the LORD: possess thou the west and the south. 24: And of Asher he said, [Let] Asher [be] blessed with children; let him be acceptable to his brethren, and let him dip his foot in oil. 25: Thy shoes [shall be] iron and brass; and as thy days, [so shall] thy strength [be]. 26: [There is] none like to the God of Jeshurun, [who] rideth upon the heaven in thy help, and in his excellence on the sky. 27: The eternal God [is thy] refuge, and underneath [are] the everlasting arms: and he shall thrust out the enemy from before thee, and shall say, Destroy [them]. 28: Israel then shall dwell in safety alone; the fountain of Jacob [shall be] upon a land of corn and wine, also his heavens shall drop down dew. 29: Happy [art] thou, O Israel: who [is] like to thee, O people saved by the LORD, the shield of thy help, and who [is] the sword of thy excellence! and thy enemies shall be found liars to thee; and thou shalt tread upon their high places.
