Deuteronomy 33 (WEBP)

[1] This is the blessing with which Moses the man of God blessed the children of Israel before his death.
[2] He said, “Yahweh came from Sinai, and rose from Seir to them. He shone from Mount Paran. He came from the ten thousands of holy ones. At his right hand was a fiery law for them.°
[3] Yes, he loves the people. All his saints are in your hand. They sat down at your feet. Each receives your words.
[4] Moses commanded us a law, an inheritance for the assembly of Jacob.
[5] He was king in Jeshurun, when the heads of the people were gathered, all the tribes of Israel together.
[6] “Let Reuben live, and not die; Nor let his men be few.”
[7] This is for Judah. He said, “Hear, Yahweh, the voice of Judah. Bring him in to his people. With his hands he contended for himself. You shall be a help against his adversaries.”
[8] About Levi he said, “Your Thummim and your Urim are with your godly one, whom you proved at Massah, with whom you contended at the waters of Meribah.
[9] He said of his father, and of his mother, ‘I have not seen him.’ He didn’t acknowledge his brothers, nor did he know his own children; for they have observed your word, and keep your covenant.
[10] They shall teach Jacob your ordinances, and Israel your law. They shall put incense before you, and whole burnt offering on your altar.
[11] Yahweh, bless his skills. Accept the work of his hands. Strike through the hips of those who rise up against him, of those who hate him, that they not rise again.”
[12] About Benjamin he said, “The beloved of Yahweh will dwell in safety by him. He covers him all day long. He dwells between his shoulders.”
[13] About Joseph he said, “His land is blessed by Yahweh, for the precious things of the heavens, for the dew, for the deep that couches beneath,
[14] for the precious things of the fruits of the sun, for the precious things that the moon can yield,
[15] for the best things of the ancient mountains, for the precious things of the everlasting hills,
[16] for the precious things of the earth and its fullness, the good will of him who lived in the bush.° Let this come on the head of Joseph, on the crown of the head of him who was separated from his brothers.
[17] Majesty belongs to the firstborn of his herd. His horns are the horns of the wild ox. With them he will push all the peoples to the ends of the earth. They are the ten thousands of Ephraim. They are the thousands of Manasseh.”
[18] About Zebulun he said, “Rejoice, Zebulun, in your going out; and Issachar, in your tents.
[19] They will call the peoples to the mountain. There they will offer sacrifices of righteousness, for they will draw out the abundance of the seas, the hidden treasures of the sand.”
[20] About Gad he said, “He who enlarges Gad is blessed. He dwells as a lioness, and tears the arm and the crown of the head.
[21] He provided the first part for himself, for the lawgiver’s portion was reserved for him. He came with the heads of the people. He executed the righteousness of Yahweh, His ordinances with Israel.”
[22] About Dan he said, “Dan is a lion’s cub that leaps out of Bashan.”
[23] About Naphtali he said, “Naphtali, satisfied with favor, full of Yahweh’s blessing, Possess the west and the south.”
[24] About Asher he said, “Asher is blessed with children. Let him be acceptable to his brothers. Let him dip his foot in oil.
[25] Your bars will be iron and bronze. As your days, so your strength will be.
[26] “There is no one like God, Jeshurun, who rides on the heavens for your help, in his excellency on the skies.
[27] The eternal God is your dwelling place. Underneath are the everlasting arms. He thrust out the enemy from before you, and said, ‘Destroy!’
[28] Israel dwells in safety, the fountain of Jacob alone, In a land of grain and new wine. Yes, his heavens drop down dew.
[29] You are happy, Israel! Who is like you, a people saved by Yahweh, the shield of your help, the sword of your excellency? Your enemies will submit themselves to you. You will tread on their high places.”

Deuteronomy 33:2 another manuscript reads “He came with myriads of holy ones from the south, from his mountain slopes.”

Deuteronomy 33 (KJVS)

[1] And this [is] the blessing H1293, wherewith Moses H4872 the man H376 of God H430 blessed H1288 (8765) the children H1121 of Israel H3478 before H6440 his death H4194.
[2] And he said H559 (8799), The LORD H3068 came H935 (8804) from Sinai H5514, and rose up H2224 (8804) from Seir H8165 unto them; he shined forth H3313 (8689) from mount H2022 Paran H6290, and he came H857 (8804) with ten thousands H7233 of saints H6944: from his right hand H3225 [went] a fiery H799 (8676) H784 law H1881 for them.
[3] Yea H637, he loved H2245 (8801) the people H5971; all his saints H6918 [are] in thy hand H3027: and they sat down H8497 (8795) at thy feet H7272; [every one] shall receive H5375 (8799) of thy words H1703.
[4] Moses H4872 commanded H6680 (8765) us a law H8451, [even] the inheritance H4181 of the congregation H6952 of Jacob H3290.
[5] And he was king H4428 in Jeshurun H3484, when the heads H7218 of the people H5971 [and] the tribes H7626 of Israel H3478 were gathered H622 (8692) together H3162.
[6] Let Reuben H7205 live H2421 (8799), and not die H4191 (8799); and let [not] his men H4962 be few H4557.
[7] And this [is the blessing] of Judah H3063: and he said H559 (8799), Hear H8085 (8798), LORD H3068, the voice H6963 of Judah H3063, and bring H935 (8686) him unto his people H5971: let his hands H3027 be sufficient H7227 for him; and be thou an help H5828 [to him] from his enemies H6862.
[8] And of Levi H3878 he said H559 (8804), [Let] thy Thummim H8550 and thy Urim H224 [be] with thy holy H2623 one H376, whom thou didst prove H5254 (8765) at Massah H4532, [and with] whom thou didst strive H7378 (8799) at the waters H4325 of Meribah H4809;
[9] Who said H559 (8802) unto his father H1 and to his mother H517, I have not seen H7200 (8804) him; neither did he acknowledge H5234 (8689) his brethren H251, nor knew H3045 (8804) his own children H1121: for they have observed H8104 (8804) thy word H565, and kept H5341 (8799) thy covenant H1285.
[10] They shall teach H3384 (8686) Jacob H3290 thy judgments H4941, and Israel H3478 thy law H8451: they shall put H7760 (8799) incense H6988 before H639 thee, and whole burnt sacrifice H3632 upon thine altar H4196.
[11] Bless H1288 (8761), LORD H3068, his substance H2428, and accept H7521 (8799) the work H6467 of his hands H3027: smite H4272 (8798) through the loins H4975 of them that rise H6965 (8801) against him, and of them that hate H8130 (8764) him, that they rise H6965 not H4480 again H6965 (8799).
[12] [And] of Benjamin H1144 he said H559 (8804), The beloved H3039 of the LORD H3068 shall dwell H7931 (8799) in safety H983 by him; [and the LORD] shall cover H2653 (8802) him all the day H3117 long, and he shall dwell H7931 (8804) between his shoulders H3802.
[13] And of Joseph H3130 he said H559 (8804), Blessed H1288 (8794) of the LORD H3068 [be] his land H776, for the precious things H4022 of heaven H8064, for the dew H2919, and for the deep H8415 that coucheth beneath H7257 (8802),
[14] And for the precious H4022 fruits H8393 [brought forth] by the sun H8121, and for the precious things H4022 put forth H1645 by the moon H3391,
[15] And for the chief things H7218 of the ancient H6924 mountains H2042, and for the precious things H4022 of the lasting H5769 hills H1389,
[16] And for the precious things H4022 of the earth H776 and fulness H4393 thereof, and [for] the good will H7522 of him that dwelt H7931 (8802) in the bush H5572: let [the blessing] come H935 (8799) upon the head H7218 of Joseph H3130, and upon the top of the head H6936 of him [that was] separated H5139 from his brethren H251.
[17] His glory H1926 [is like] the firstling H1060 of his bullock H7794, and his horns H7161 [are like] the horns H7161 of unicorns H7214: with them he shall push H5055 (8762) the people H5971 together H3162 to the ends H657 of the earth H776: and they [are] the ten thousands H7233 of Ephraim H669, and they [are] the thousands H505 of Manasseh H4519.
[18] And of Zebulun H2074 he said H559 (8804), Rejoice H8055 (8798), Zebulun H2074, in thy going out H3318 (8800); and, Issachar H3485, in thy tents H168.
[19] They shall call H7121 (8799) the people H5971 unto the mountain H2022; there they shall offer H2076 (8799) sacrifices H2077 of righteousness H6664: for they shall suck H3243 (8799) [of] the abundance H8228 of the seas H3220, and [of] treasures H8226 (8803) hid H2934 (8803) in the sand H2344.
[20] And of Gad H1410 he said H559 (8804), Blessed H1288 (8803) [be] he that enlargeth H7337 (8688) Gad H1410: he dwelleth H7931 (8804) as a lion H3833, and teareth H2963 (8804) the arm H2220 with H637 the crown of the head H6936.
[21] And he provided H7200 (8799) the first part H7225 for himself, because there, [in] a portion H2513 of the lawgiver H2710 (8781), [was he] seated H5603 (8803); and he came H857 (8799) with the heads H7218 of the people H5971, he executed H6213 (8804) the justice H6666 of the LORD H3068, and his judgments H4941 with Israel H3478.
[22] And of Dan H1835 he said H559 (8804), Dan H1835 [is] a lion’s H738 whelp H1482: he shall leap H2187 (8762) from Bashan H1316.
[23] And of Naphtali H5321 he said H559 (8804), O Naphtali H5321, satisfied H7649 with favour H7522, and full H4392 with the blessing H1293 of the LORD H3068: possess H3423 (8798) thou the west H3220 and the south H1864.
[24] And of Asher H836 he said H559 (8804), [Let] Asher H836 [be] blessed H1288 (8803) with children H1121; let him be acceptable H7521 (8803) to his brethren H251, and let him dip H2881 (8802) his foot H7272 in oil H8081.
[25] Thy shoes H4515 [shall be] iron H1270 and brass H5178; and as thy days H3117, [so shall] thy strength H1679 [be].
[26] [There is] none like unto the God H410 of Jeshurun H3484, [who] rideth H7392 (8802) upon the heaven H8064 in thy help H5828, and in his excellency H1346 on the sky H7834.
[27] The eternal H6924 God H430 [is thy] refuge H4585, and underneath [are] the everlasting H5769 arms H2220: and he shall thrust out H1644 (8762) the enemy H341 (8802) from before H6440 thee; and shall say H559 (8799), Destroy H8045 (8685) [them].
[28] Israel H3478 then shall dwell H7931 (8799) in safety H983 alone H910: the fountain H5869 of Jacob H3290 [shall be] upon a land H776 of corn H1715 and wine H8492; also his heavens H8064 shall drop down H6201 (8799) dew H2919.
[29] Happy H835 [art] thou, O Israel H3478: who [is] like unto thee, O people H5971 saved H3467 (8737) by the LORD H3068, the shield H4043 of thy help H5828, and who [is] the sword H2719 of thy excellency H1346! and thine enemies H341 (8802) shall be found liars H3584 (8735) unto thee; and thou shalt tread H1869 (8799) upon their high places H1116.

Deuteronomy 33 (YLT)

[1] And this is the blessing with which Moses the man of God blessed the sons of Israel before his death,
[2] and he saith:- ‘Jehovah from Sinai hath come, And hath risen from Seir for them; He hath shone from mount Paran, And hath come with myriads of holy ones; At His right hand are springs for them.
[3] Also He is loving the peoples; All His holy ones are in thy hand, And they-they sat down at thy foot, Each He lifteth up at thy words.
[4] A law hath Moses commanded us, A possession of the assembly of Jacob.
[5] And he is in Jeshurun king, In the heads of the people gathering together, The tribes of Israel!
[6] Let Reuben live, and not die, And let his men be a number.
[7] And this is for Judah; and he saith:- Hear, O Jehovah, the voice of Judah, And unto his people do Thou bring him in; His hand hath striven for him, And an help from his adversaries art Thou.
[8] And of Levi he said:- Thy Thummim and thy Urim are for thy pious one, Whom Thou hast tried in Massah, Thou dost strive with Him at the waters of Meribah;
[9] Who is saying of his father and his mother, I have not seen him; And his brethren he hath not discerned, And his sons he hath not known; For they have observed Thy saying, And Thy covenant they keep.
[10] They teach Thy judgments to Jacob, And Thy law to Israel; They put perfume in Thy nose, And whole burnt-offering on Thine altar.
[11] Bless, O Jehovah, his strength, And the work of his hands Thou acceptest, Smite the loins of his withstanders, And of those hating him-that they rise not!
[12] Of Benjamin he said:- The beloved of Jehovah doth tabernacle confidently by him, Covering him over all the day; Yea, between his shoulders He doth tabernacle.
[13] And of Joseph he said:- Blessed of Jehovah is his land, By precious things of the heavens, By dew, and by the deep crouching beneath,
[14] And by precious things-fruits of the sun, And by precious things-cast forth by the moons,
[15] And by chief things-of the ancient mountains, And by precious things-of the age-during heights,
[16] And by precious things-of earth and its fulness, And the good pleasure Of Him who is dwelling in the bush, -Let it come for the head of Joseph, And for the crown of him Who is separate from his brethren.
[17] His honour is a firstling of his ox, And his horns are horns of a reem; By them peoples he doth push together To the ends of earth; And they are the myriads of Ephraim, And they are the thousands of Manasseh.
[18] And of Zebulun he said:- Rejoice, O Zebulun, in thy going out, And, O Issachar, in thy tents;
[19] Peoples to the mountain they call, There they sacrifice righteous sacrifices; For the abundance of the seas they suck, And hidden things hidden in the sand.
[20] And of Gad he said:- Blessed of the Enlarger is Gad, As a lioness he doth tabernacle, And hath torn the arm-also the crown!
[21] And he provideth the first part for himself, For there the portion of the lawgiver is covered, And he cometh with the heads of the people; The righteousness of Jehovah he hath done, And His judgments with Israel.
[22] And of Dan he said:- Dan is a lion’s whelp; he doth leap from Bashan.
[23] And of Naphtali he said:- O Naphtali, satisfied with pleasure, And full of the blessing of Jehovah, West and south possess thou.
[24] And of Asher he said:- Blessed with sons is Asher, Let him be accepted by his brethren, And dipping in oil his foot.
[25] Iron and brass are thy shoes, And as thy days-thy strength.
[26] There is none like the God of Jeshurun, Riding the heavens in thy help, And in His excellency the skies.
[27] A habitation is the eternal God, And beneath are arms age-during. And He casteth out from thy presence the enemy, and saith, ‘Destroy!’
[28] And Israel doth tabernacle in confidence alone; The eye of Jacob is unto a land of corn and wine; Also His heavens drop down dew.
[29] O thy happiness, O Israel! who is like thee? A people saved by Jehovah, The shield of thy help, And He who is the sword of thine excellency: And thine enemies are subdued for thee, And thou on their high places dost tread.’
