The [one] saying of his father and of his mother, 'I have not regarded them,' and his brothers he [did] not acknowledge, and his children [he did] not know, but [rather] they observed your word, and your covenant they kept. They taught your regulations to Jacob, and your law to Israel; they placed incense smoke {before you}, and whole burnt offerings on your altar. Bless, O Yahweh, his substance, and with the work of his hands you must be pleased; smite the loins of those who attack him, and those hating him, {so that they cannot arise}." Of Benjamin he said, "The beloved of Yahweh dwells {securely}, the Most High shields [all] around him, all the day, and between his shoulders he dwells." And of Joseph he said, "Blessed by Yahweh [is] his land, with the choice things of heaven, with dew, and with the deep lying down beneath, and with [the] choice things of [the] fruits of the [the] sun, and with the choice things of [the] yield of [the] {seasons}, and with the finest things of [the] ancient mountains, and with [the] choice things of [the] {eternal hills}, and with the choice things of [the] earth and its fullness, and the favor of [the one] {who dwelt} in [the] bush.

And of Gad he said, "Blessed [be] {the one who enlarges Gad}; like a lion he dwells, and he tears an arm as well as a scalp. And he selected [the] best [part] for himself, for there [the] portion of a ruler [is] included, and he came [with the] heads of [the] people; he did the righteousness of Yahweh, and his regulations for Israel." And of Dan he said, "Dan [is] a cub of lion; he leaps from Bashan." And of Naphtali, he said, "Oh, Naphtali, sated of favor, and full of the blessing of Yahweh; take possession of [the] lake, and [the land to the] south." And of Asher he said, "Blessed {more than sons} [is] Asher; {may he be the favorite} of his brothers, {dipping his feet in the oil}. Your bars [are] iron and bronze, and as your days, [so is] your strength." "There is no [one] like God, O, Jeshurun, who rides [through] the heavens to your help, and with his majesty [through the] skies. The God of {ancient time} [is] a hiding place, and underneath [are] [the] arms of eternity, and he drove out {from before} you your enemy, and he said, 'Destroy [them]!' So Israel dwells alone [and] carefree, the spring of Jacob in a land of grain and wine; his heavens even drip dew. Blessed [are] you, O Israel. Who is like you, a people who [is] saved by Yahweh, the shield of your help, and who [is] the sword of your triumph, and your enemies, they shall fawn before you, and you shall tread on their backs."
