"How beautiful are your tents,1 O Jacob, your dwelling places, O Israel!
"Like valleys they spread out, like gardens beside a river,2 like aloes3 planted by the LORD, like cedars beside the waters.47
Water will flow from their buckets; their seed will have abundant water. "Their king will be greater than Agag;5 their kingdom will be exalted.68
"God brought them out of Egypt; they have the strength of a wild ox. They devour hostile nations and break their bones in pieces;7 with their arrows they pierce them.89
Like a lion they crouch and lie down, like a lioness9--who dares to rouse them? "May those who bless you be blessed10 and those who curse you be cursed!"11
