Deuteronomy 33

CEB 1 This is the blessing that Moses the man of God gave the Israelites before he died. NIV 1 This is the blessing that Moses the man of God pronounced on the Israelites before his death. CEB 2 He said: The LORD came from Sinai: from Seir he shone like the dawn on us, from Paran Mountain he beamed down. Thousands of holy ones were with him; his warriors were next to him, ready. NIV 2 He said: “The LORD came from Sinai and dawned over them from Seir; he shone forth from Mount Paran. He came with myriads of holy ones from the south, from his mountain slopes. CEB 3 Yes, those who love the nations— all his holy ones—were at your command; they followed your footsteps; they got moving when you said so. NIV 3 Surely it is you who love the people; all the holy ones are in your hand. At your feet they all bow down, and from you receive instruction, CEB 4 Moses gave the Instruction to us— it's the prized possession of Jacob's assembly. NIV 4 the law that Moses gave us, the possession of the assembly of Jacob. CEB 5 A king came to rule in Jeshurun, when the people's leaders gathered together, when Israel's tribes were one. NIV 5 He was king over Jeshurun when the leaders of the people assembled, along with the tribes of Israel. CEB 6 "I pray that Reuben lives, doesn't die, though his numbers are so few." NIV 6 “Let Reuben live and not die, nor his people be few.” CEB 7 Moses said this to Judah: "LORD, listen to Judah's voice! Bring him back to his own people, strengthen his hands; be his help against every enemy." NIV 7 And this he said about Judah: “Hear, LORD, the cry of Judah; bring him to his people. With his own hands he defends his cause. Oh, be his help against his foes!” CEB 8 Then he told Levi: "Give your Thummim to Levi, your Urim to your faithful one— the one you tested at Massah, the one you challenged by Meribah's waters; NIV 8 About Levi he said: “Your Thummim and Urim belong to your faithful servant. You tested him at Massah; you contended with him at the waters of Meribah. CEB 9 the one who said of his own mother and father: ‘I don't consider them as such'; of their siblings: ‘I don't recognize them'; of their own children, ‘I don't know them'— but who obeyed your words and who guarded your covenant! NIV 9 He said of his father and mother, ‘I have no regard for them.’ He did not recognize his brothers or acknowledge his own children, but he watched over your word and guarded your covenant. CEB 10 They teach your case laws to Jacob, your Instruction to Israel. They hold sweet incense to your nose; put the entirely burned offering on your altar. NIV 10 He teaches your precepts to Jacob and your law to Israel. He offers incense before you and whole burnt offerings on your altar. CEB 11 I pray that the LORD blesses Levi's strength, favors his hard work, and crushes the insides of his enemies so that those who hate him can't fight anymore." NIV 11 Bless all his skills, LORD, and be pleased with the work of his hands. Strike down those who rise against him, his foes till they rise no more.” CEB 12 He said to Benjamin: "The LORD's dearest one rests safely on him. The Lord always shields him; he rests on God's chest." NIV 12 About Benjamin he said: “Let the beloved of the LORD rest secure in him, for he shields him all day long, and the one the LORD loves rests between his shoulders.” CEB 13 Then he told Joseph: "I pray that his land is blessed by God: with heaven's gifts from above, with the deep waters stretching out underneath; NIV 13 About Joseph he said: “May the LORD bless his land with the precious dew from heaven above and with the deep waters that lie below; CEB 14 with the gifts produced by the sun, with the gifts generated by the moon; NIV 14 with the best the sun brings forth and the finest the moon can yield; CEB 15 with the best fruit from ancient mountains, with the gifts of eternal hills; NIV 15 with the choicest gifts of the ancient mountains and the fruitfulness of the everlasting hills; CEB 16 with the gifts of the earth and all that fills it, and the favor of the one who lives on Sinai. I pray that all these rest on Joseph's head, on the crown of that prince among brothers. NIV 16 with the best gifts of the earth and its fullness and the favor of him who dwelt in the burning bush. Let all these rest on the head of Joseph, on the brow of the prince among his brothers. CEB 17 A firstborn bull—that's how majestic he is! A wild ox's horns—those are his horns! With them he gores all peoples completely, to the far ends of the earth! His horns are Ephraim's tens of thousands. His horns are Manasseh's thousands." NIV 17 In majesty he is like a firstborn bull; his horns are the horns of a wild ox. With them he will gore the nations, even those at the ends of the earth. Such are the ten thousands of Ephraim; such are the thousands of Manasseh.” CEB 18 Then he told Zebulun: "Zebulun: celebrate when you are out and about; Issachar: celebrate when you are at home in your tents! NIV 18 About Zebulun he said: “Rejoice, Zebulun, in your going out, and you, Issachar, in your tents. CEB 19 They call all sorts of people to the mountain, where they offer right sacrifices. It's true: They're nourished on the sea's abundance; they are nourished on buried treasures in the sand." NIV 19 They will summon peoples to the mountain and there offer the sacrifices of the righteous; they will feast on the abundance of the seas, on the treasures hidden in the sand.” CEB 20 Then he told Gad: "May Gad's broad lands be blessed! He lives like a lion: he rips an arm, even a head! NIV 20 About Gad he said: “Blessed is he who enlarges Gad’s domain! Gad lives there like a lion, tearing at arm or head. CEB 21 He chose the best part for himself because there, where the commander's portion was, the leaders of the people gathered together. Gad executed the LORD's justice and the Lord's judgments for Israel." NIV 21 He chose the best land for himself; the leader’s portion was kept for him. When the heads of the people assembled, he carried out the LORD’s righteous will, and his judgments concerning Israel.” CEB 22 Then he told Dan: "Dan is a lion cub. He jumps up from Bashan." NIV 22 About Dan he said: “Dan is a lion’s cub, springing out of Bashan.” CEB 23 Then he told Naphtali: "Naphtali—you are full of favor, overflowing with the LORD's blessing— go possess the west and the south!" NIV 23 About Naphtali he said: “Naphtali is abounding with the favor of the LORDand is full of his blessing; he will inherit southward to the lake.” CEB 24 Finally, he told Asher: "Asher is the most blessed of sons. I pray that he's his brothers' favorite— one who dips his foot in fine oil. NIV 24 About Asher he said: “Most blessed of sons is Asher; let him be favored by his brothers, and let him bathe his feet in oil. CEB 25 I pray that your dead bolts are iron and copper, and that your strength lasts all your days." NIV 25 The bolts of your gates will be iron and bronze, and your strength will equal your days. CEB 26 Jeshurun! No one compares to God! He rides through heaven to help you, rides majestically through the clouds. NIV 26 “There is no one like the God of Jeshurun, who rides across the heavens to help you and on the clouds in his majesty. CEB 27 The most ancient God is a place of safety; the eternal arms are a support. He drove out the enemy before you. He commanded: "Destroy them!" NIV 27 The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms. He will drive out your enemies before you, saying, ‘Destroy them!’ CEB 28 So Israel now lives in safety— Jacob's residence is secure— in a land full of grain and wine, where the heavens drip dew. NIV 28 So Israel will live in safety; Jacob will dwell secure in a land of grain and new wine, where the heavens drop dew. CEB 29 Happy are you, Israel! Who is like you? You are a people saved by the LORD! He's the shield that helps you, your majestic sword! Your enemies will come crawling on their knees to you, but you will stomp on their backs! NIV 29 Blessed are you, Israel! Who is like you, a people saved by the LORD? He is your shield and helper and your glorious sword. Your enemies will cower before you, and you will tread on their heights.”
