Genesis 49:8-12

8 "Judah, your brothers shall praise you; Your hand shall be on the neck of your enemies; 1Your father's sons shall bow down to you.
9 "Judah is a 2lion's whelp; From the prey, my son, you have gone up. 3He couches, he lies down as a lion, And as a lion, who dares rouse him up?
10 "4The scepter shall not depart from Judah, Nor the ruler's staff from between his feet, Until * Shiloh comes, And 5to him shall be the obedience of the peoples.
11 "6He ties his foal to the vine, And his donkey's colt to the choice vine; 7He washes his garments in wine, And his robes in the blood of grapes.
12 "His eyes are dull from wine, And his teeth white from milk.
