16 “Why did you sit among the sheepfolds,
To hear the piping for the flocks?
Among the divisions of Reuben
There were great searchings of heart.

And why did Dan stay in ships?
Asher sat at the seashore,
And remained by its landings.
18 Zebulun was a people who despised their lives even to death,
And Naphtali also, on the high places of the field.
