Deuteronomy 33

1 This is the blessing, with which Moshe the man of God blessed the children of Yisra'el before his death.
2 He said, The LORD came from Sinai, Rose from Se`ir to them; He shined forth from Mount Paran, He came from the ten thousands of holy ones: At his right hand was a fiery law for them.
3 Yes, he loves the people; All his holy ones are in your hand: They sat down at your feet; [Everyone] shall receive of your words.
4 Moshe commanded us a law, An inheritance for the assembly of Ya`akov.
5 He was king in Yeshurun, When the heads of the people were gathered, All the tribes of Yisra'el together.
6 Let Re'uven live, and not die; Nor let his men be few.
7 This is [the blessing] of Yehudah: and he said, Hear, LORD, the voice of Yehudah, Bring him in to his people. With his hands he contended for himself; You shall be a help against his adversaries.
8 Of Levi he said, Your Tummim and your Urim are with your godly one, Whom you did prove at Massah, With whom you did strive at the waters of Merivah;
9 Who said of his father, and of his mother, I have not seen him; Neither did he acknowledge his brothers, Nor knew he his own children: For they have observed your word, Keep your covenant.
10 They shall teach Ya`akov your ordinances, Yisra'el your law: They shall put incense before you, Whole burnt offering on your altar.
11 Bless, LORD, his substance, Accept the work of his hands: Smite through the loins of those who rise up against him, Of those who hate him, that they not rise again.
12 Of Binyamin he said, The beloved of the LORD shall dwell in safety by him; He covers him all the day long, He dwells between his shoulders.
13 Of Yosef he said, Blessed of the LORD be his land, For the precious things of the heavens, for the dew, For the deep that couches beneath,
14 For the precious things of the fruits of the sun, For the precious things of the growth of the moons,
15 For the chief things of the ancient mountains, For the precious things of the everlasting hills,
16 For the precious things of the eretz and the fullness of it, The good will of him who lived in the bush. Let [the blessing] come on the head of Yosef, On the crown of the head of him who was separate from his brothers.
17 The firstborn of his herd, majesty is his; His horns are the horns of the wild-ox: With them he shall push the peoples all of them, [even] the ends of the eretz: They are the ten thousands of Efrayim, They are the thousands of Menashsheh.
18 Of Zevulun he said, Rejoice, Zevulun, in your going out; Yissakhar, in your tents.
19 They shall call the peoples to the mountain; There shall they offer sacrifices of righteousness: For they shall suck the abundance of the seas, The hidden treasures of the sand.
20 Of Gad he said, Blessed be he who enlarges Gad: He dwells as a lioness, Tears the arm, yes, the crown of the head.
21 He provided the first part for himself, For there was the lawgiver's portion reserved; He came [with] the heads of the people; He executed the righteousness of the LORD, His ordinances with Yisra'el.
22 Of Dan he said, Dan is a lion's whelp, That leaps forth from Bashan.
23 Of Naftali he said, Naftali, satisfied with favor, Full with the blessing of the LORD, Possess you the west and the south.
24 Of Asher he said, Blessed be Asher with children; Let him be acceptable to his brothers, Let him dip his foot in oil.
25 Your bars shall be iron and brass; As your days, so shall your strength be.
26 There is none like God, Yeshurun, Who rides on the heavens for your help, In his excellency on the skies.
27 The eternal God is [your] dwelling-place, Underneath are the everlasting arms. He thrust out the enemy from before you, Said, Destroy.
28 Yisra'el dwells in safety, The fountain of Ya`akov alone, In a land of grain and new wine; Yes, his heavens drop down dew.
29 Happy are you, Yisra'el: Who is like you, a people saved by the LORD, The shield of your help, The sword of your excellency! Your enemies shall submit themselves to you; You shall tread on their high places.
