Jacob Blesses His Twelve Sons

26 The blessings of thy father surpass the blessings of my ancestors, Unto the bounds of the everlasting hills: They shall be on the head of Joseph, And on the crown of the head of him that was separated from his brethren. 27 Benjamin as a wolf will he tear to pieces; In the morning he will devour the prey, And in the evening he will divide the booty. 28 All these are the twelve tribes of Israel, and this is what their father spoke to them; and he blessed them: every one according to his blessing he blessed them.
