Moses Blesses the People

33This is the blessing that Moses, the man of God, gave to the people of Israel before his death.H1293H4872H376H430H1288H1121H3478H6440H4194 2"The LORD came from Mount Sinai and dawned upon us from Mount Seir; he shone forth from Mount Paran and came from Meribah-kadesh with flaming fire at his right hand.H559H3068H935H5514H2224H8165H3313H2022H6290H857H7233H6944H3225H799H784H1881 3Indeed, he loves his people; all his holy ones are in his hands. They follow in his steps and accept his teaching.H637H2245H5971H6918H3027H8497H7272H5375H1703 4Moses gave us the LORD's instruction, the special possession of the people of Israel.H4872H6680H8451H4181H6952H3290 5The LORD became king in Israel—when the leaders of the people assembled, when the tribes of Israel gathered as one."H4428H3484H7218H5971H7626H3478H622H3162 6Moses said this about the tribe of Reuben. "Let the tribe of Reuben live and not die out, though they are few in number."H7205H2421H4191H4962H4557 7Moses said this about the tribe of Judah: "O LORD, hear the cry of Judah and bring them together as a people. Give them strength to defend their cause; help them against their enemies!"H3063H559H8085H3068H6963H3063H935H5971H3027H7227H5828H6862 8Moses said this about the tribe of Levi: "O LORD, you have given your Thummim and Urim—the sacred lots—to your faithful servants the Levites. You put them to the test at Massah and struggled with them at the waters of Meribah.H3878H559H8550H224H2623H376H5254H4532H7378H4325H4809 9The Levites obeyed your word and guarded your covenant. They were more loyal to you than to their own parents. They ignored their relatives and did not acknowledge their own children.H559H1H517H7200H5234H251H3045H1121H8104H565H5341H1285 10They teach your regulations to Jacob; they give your instructions to Israel. They present incense before you and offer whole burnt offerings on the altar.H3384H3290H4941H3478H8451H7760H6988H639H3632H4196 11Bless the ministry of the Levites, O LORD, and accept all the work of their hands. Hit their enemies where it hurts the most; strike down their foes so they never rise again."H1288H3068H2428H7521H6467H3027H4272H4975H6965H8130H6965H4480H6965 12Moses said this about the tribe of Benjamin: "The people of Benjamin are loved by the LORD and live in safety beside him. He surrounds them continuously and preserves them from every harm."H1144H559H3039H3068H7931H983H2653H3117H7931H3802 13Moses said this about the tribes of Joseph: "May their land be blessed by the LORD with the precious gift of dew from the heavens and water from beneath the earth;H3130H559H1288H3068H776H4022H8064H2919H8415H7257 14with the rich fruit that grows in the sun, and the rich harvest produced each month;H4022H8393H8121H4022H1645H3391 15with the finest crops of the ancient mountains, and the abundance from the everlasting hills;H7218H6924H2042H4022H5769H1389 16with the best gifts of the earth and its bounty, and the favor of the one who appeared in the burning bush. May these blessings rest on Joseph's head, crowning the brow of the prince among his brothers.H4022H776H4393H7522H7931H5572H935H7218H3130H6936H5139H251 17Joseph has the majesty of a young bull; he has the horns of a wild ox. He will gore distant nations, driving them to the ends of the earth. This is my blessing for the multitudes of Ephraim and the thousands of Manasseh."H1926H1060H7794H7161H7161H7214H5055H5971H3162H657H776H7233H669H505H4519 18Moses said this about the tribes of Zebulun and Issachar: "May the people of Zebulun prosper in their travels. May the people of Issachar prosper at home in their tents.H2074H559H8055H2074H3318H3485H168 19They summon the people to the mountain to offer proper sacrifices there. They benefit from the riches of the sea and the hidden treasures in the sand."H7121H5971H2022H2076H2077H6664H3243H8228H3220H8226H2934H2344 20Moses said this about the tribe of Gad: "Blessed is the one who enlarges Gad's territory! Gad is poised there like a lion to tear off an arm or a head.H1410H559H1288H7337H1410H7931H3833H2963H2220H637H6936 21The people of Gad took the best land for themselves; a leader's share was assigned to them. When the leaders of the people were assembled, they carried out the LORD's justice and obeyed his regulations for Israel."H7200H7225H2513H2710H5603H857H7218H5971H6213H6666H3068H4941H3478 22Moses said this about the tribe of Dan: "Dan is a lion's cub, leaping out from Bashan."H1835H559H1835H738H1482H2187H1316 23Moses said this about the tribe of Naphtali: "O Naphtali, you are rich in favor and full of the LORD's blessings; may you possess the west and the south."H5321H559H5321H7649H7522H4392H1293H3068H3423H3220H1864 24Moses said this about the tribe of Asher: "May Asher be blessed above other sons; may he be esteemed by his brothers; may he bathe his feet in olive oil.H836H559H836H1288H1121H7521H251H2881H7272H8081 25May the bolts of your gates be of iron and bronze; may you be secure all your days."H4515H1270H5178H3117H1679 26"There is no one like the God of Israel. He rides across the heavens to help you, across the skies in majestic splendor.H410H3484H7392H8064H5828H1346H7834 27The eternal God is your refuge, and his everlasting arms are under you. He drives out the enemy before you; he cries out, 'Destroy them!'H6924H430H4585H5769H2220H1644H341H6440H559H8045 28So Israel will live in safety, prosperous Jacob in security, in a land of grain and new wine, while the heavens drop down dew.H3478H7931H983H910H5869H3290H776H1715H8492H8064H6201H2919 29How blessed you are, O Israel! Who else is like you, a people saved by the LORD? He is your protecting shield and your triumphant sword! Your enemies will cringe before you, and you will stomp on their backs!"H835H3478H5971H3467H3068H4043H5828H2719H1346H341H3584H1869H1116
