GENESIS 49:1 JPS 49:1 And Jacob called unto his sons, and said: 'Gather yourselves together, that I may tell you that which shall befall you in the end of days. ONK 49:1 And Jacob called his sons, and said, Gather together, and I will show you what will befall you in the end of the days; PAL 49:1 And Jakob called his sons and said to them, Purify yourselves from uncleanness, and I will show you the hidden mysteries, the ends concealed, the recompense of reward for the righteous, the retribution of the wicked, and the bower of Eden, what it is. And the twelve tribes of Israel gathered themselves together around the golden bed whereon he reclined, and where was revealed to him the Shekina of the Lord, (though) the end for which the king Meshiha is to come had been concealed from him. Then said he, Come, and I will declare to you what shall befall you at the end of the days. JER 49:1 And our father Jakob called his sons, and said to them, Gather together, and I will teach you the concealed end, the secret mysteries, the recompense of reward for the just, and the punishment of the wicked, and the blessedness of Eden, what it is. And the twelve tribes of Jakob assembled and surrounded the golden bed whereon our father Jakob lay, desiring that he should teach them (at the) end in benediction and consolation. Then was revealed to him the secret that had been hidden from him, and then was opened the door which had been shut to him. Our father Jakob turned therefore and blessed his sons, every man according to his good did he bless him. GENESIS 49:2 JPS 49:2 Assemble yourselves, and hear, ye sons of Jacob;
And hearken unto Israel your father.
ONK 49:2 assemble, and hearken, O sons of Jakob, and receive instruction from Israel your father, PAL 49:2 Gather yourselves together and hear, ye sons of Jakob, and receive instruction from Israel your father. JER 49:2 When the twelve tribes of Jakob were assembled, and surrounded the golden bed whereon our father Jakob lay, they expected that he would make known to them the order of blessing and consolation: but they were hidden from him. Our father Jakob answered and said to them: From Abraham my father's father arose the profane Ishmael and all the sons of Keturah; and from Izhak my father arose the profane Esau, my brother; and I am afraid lest there should be among you a man whose heart is separated from his brethren to go and worship before strange idols. The twelve tribes of Jakob answered all together, and said, HEAR US, ISRAEL OUR FATHER! THE LORD OUR GOD IS ONE LORD! And Jakob our father answered, and said, May His Great Name be blessed for ever and ever! GENESIS 49:3 JPS 49:3 Reuben, thou art my first-born,
My might, and the first-fruits of my strength;
The excellency of dignity, and the excellency of power.
ONK 49:3 Reuben, thou art my first-born, my strength, and the beginning of my power.(239) 239. Samaritan Version, "the beginning of my time." Thine should it have been taking to take the three portions,the birthright, the priesthood, and the kingdom: but because thou hast proceeded perversely,(240) 240. Or, "proceeded deceitfully." Azalta lakabel appeka. PAL 49:3 Reuben, thou art my firstborn, the beginning of the strength of my generation, and the chief event of my thoughts; To thee belonged the birthright, and the high priesthood, and the kingdom: JER 49:3 Reuben, my firstborn art thou, my strength, and the beginning of my sorrow. To thee my son Reuben would it have pertained to receive three portions above thy brethren, birthright, priesthood, kingdom: GENESIS 49:4 JPS 49:4 Unstable as water, have not thou the excellency;
Because thou wentest up to thy father's bed;
Then defiledst thou it—he went up to my couch.
ONK 49:4 behold, as water outpoured thou wilt not prosper, neither wilt thou receive the excellent portion; because thou wentest up to thy father's place of sleep: then, my son, didst thou become profane, when thou wentest up to my bed. PAL 49:4 but because thou hast sinned, my son, the birthright is given to Joseph, and the kingdom to Jehuda, and the priesthood to Levi. I will liken thee to a little garden in the midst of which there enter torrents swift and strong, which it cannot bear, but is overwhelmed. Be repentant then, Reuben my son, for thou hast sinned, and add not; that wherein thou hast sinned it may be forgiven thee; for it is reckoned to thee as if thou wentest in to have to do with the wife of thy father at the time that thou didst confound my bed upon which thou wentest up. JER 49:4 but because thou hast sinned, Reuben, my son, the birthright is given unto Joseph, the kingdom to Jehuda, and the high priesthood to the tribe of Levi. I will liken thee, my son Reuben, to a little garden into the midst of which there enter rapid torrents, which it cannot bear, but is carried away before them. Be repentant then, my son Reuben, with good works, for thou hast sinned; and sin no more, that that which thou hast sinned may be forgiven thee. GENESIS 49:5 JPS 49:5 Simeon and Levi are brethren;
Weapons of violence their kinship.
ONK 49:5 Shimeon and Levi are brothers; mighty men in the land of their sojourning, they did mightily.(241) 241. Samaritan Version, "they accomplished the fraud of their covenant." PAL 49:5 Shimeon and Levi are brothers of the womb;(124) 124. Achin telamin, "fratres uterini".Castel, 3903. their thoughts are of sharp weapons for rapine. JER 49:5 Shimeon and Levi are brothers of the womb, men who are masters of sharp weapons; they made war from their youth; in the land of their adversary they wrought out the triumphs of war. GENESIS 49:6 JPS 49:6 Let my soul not come into their council;
Unto their assembly let my glory not be united;
For in their anger they slew men,
And in their self-will they houghed oxen.
ONK 49:6 My soul was not in their secret; into their company to come I would not have descended from mine honour. For in their anger they slew a slaughter, and in their wilfulness they razed the wall of their enemy. PAL 49:6 In their counsel my soul hath not had pleasure, and in their gathering against Shekem to destroy it mine honour was not united; for in their anger they slew the prince and his ruler, and in their ill will they demolished the wall(125) 125. Or, "destroyed the oxen." of their adversary. JER 49:6 In their counsels my soul found no pleasure; and in their gathering together at the city of Shekem to destroy it, they were not favourable to my honour; for in their anger they slew kings with princes, and in their wilfulness they sold Joseph their brother, who is compared to the ox. GENESIS 49:7 JPS 49:7 Cursed be their anger, for it was fierce,
And their wrath, for it was cruel;
I will divide them in Jacob,
And scatter them in Israel.
ONK 49:7 Accursed(242) 242. Samaritan Version, "proud." was their anger, for it was strong, and their wrath, for it was relentless. I will divide them in Jakob, and I will scatter them in Israel. PAL 49:7 And Jakob said, Accursed was the town of Shekem when they entered within it to destroy it in their violent wrath; and their hatred against Joseph, for it was relentless. If, said Jakob, they dwell together, no king nor ruler may stand before them. Therefore will I divide the inheritance of the sons of Shimeon into two portions; one part shall come to them out of the inheritance of the sons of Jehuda, and one part from among the rest of the tribes of Jakob; and the tribe of Levi I will disperse among all the tribes of Israel. JER 49:7 Accursed was the town of Shekem when Shimeon and Levi entered to destroy it in their wrath, for it was strong, and in their anger, for it was cruel. And Jakob our father said, If these remain together, no people or kingdom can stand before them. I will divide the tribe of Shimeon, that they may become preachers and teachers of the law in the congregation of Jakob; and I will disperse the tribe of Levi in the houses of instruction for the sons of Israel, GENESIS 49:8 JPS 49:8 Judah, thee shall thy brethren praise;
Thy hand shall be on the neck of thine enemies;
Thy father's sons shall bow down before thee.
ONK 49:8 Jehuda, thou art praise and not shame; thy brethren shall praise thee;(243) 243. Samaritan Version, "love thee." thy hand shall prevail against thine adversaries, thine enemies shall be dispersed; they will be turned backward before thee, and the sons of thy father will come before thee with salutations. PAL 49:8 Jehuda, thou didst make confession in the matter of Tamar: therefore shall thy brethren confess(126) 126. Or, "praise." thee, and shall be called Jehudain from thy name. Thy hand shall avenge thee of thy adversaries, in throwing arrows upon them when they turn their backs before thee; and the sons of thy fathers shall come before thee with salutations. JER 49:8 Jehuda, thee shall all thy brethren praise, and from thy name shall all be called Jehudaee; thy hand shall avenge thee of thy adversaries; all the sons of thy father shall come before thee with salutation. GENESIS 49:9 JPS 49:9 Judah is a lion's whelp;
From the prey, my son, thou art gone up.
He stooped down, he couched as a lion,
And as a lioness; who shall rouse him up?
ONK 49:9 The dominion shall be (thine) in the beginning, and in the end the kingdom shall be increased from the house of Jehuda, because from the judgment of death, my son, hast thou withdrawn.(244) 244. Or, "gone up." He shall repose, and abide in strength as a lion, and as a lioness, there shall be no king that may cut him off. PAL 49:9 I will liken thee, my son Jehuda, to a whelp, the young of a lion; for from the killing of Joseph my son thou didst uplift thy soul, and from the judgment of Tamar thou wast free. He dwelleth quietly and in strength, as a lion; and as an old lion when he reposeth, who may stir him up? JER 49:9 I will liken thee, my son Jehuda, to a whelp the son of a lion: from the slaying of Joseph thou wast free, from the judgment of Tamar thou, my son, wast acquitted. He remaineth tranquil in the midst of war, as the lion and as the lioness; nor is there people or kingdom that can stand against thee. GENESIS 49:10 JPS 49:10 The sceptre shall not depart from Judah,
Nor the ruler's staff from between his feet,
As long as men come to Shiloh;
And unto him shall the obedience of the peoples be.
ONK 49:10 He who exerciseth dominion shall not pass away from the house of Jehuda, nor the saphra from his children's children for ever, until the Meshiha come, whose is the kingdom, and unto whom shall be the obedience of the nations (or, whom the peoples shall obey). PAL 49:10 Kings shall not cease, nor rulers, from the house of Jehuda, nor sapherim teaching the law from his seed, till the time that the King, the Meshiha, shall come, the youngest of his sons; and on account of him shall the peoples flow together. How beauteous is the King, the Meshiha who will arise from the house of Jehuda! He hath girded his loins, and descended, and arrayed the battle against his adversaries, slaying kings with their rulers; neither is there any king or ruler who shall stand before him. JER 49:10 Kings shall not cease from the house of Jehuda, nor sapherim teaching the law from his children's children, until the time that the King Meshiha shall come, whose is the kingdom, and to whom all the kingdoms of the earth shall be obedient. GENESIS 49:11 JPS 49:11 Binding his foal unto the vine,
And his ass's colt unto the choice vine;
He washeth his garments in wine,
And his vesture in the blood of grapes;
ONK 49:11 Israel shall pass round about in his cities; the people shall build his temple, they will be righteous round about him, and be doers of the law through his doctrine. Of goodly purple will be his raiment, and his vesture of crimson wool with colours.(245) 245. Or, "wool dyed bright with colours." PAL 49:11 The mountains become red with the blood of their slain; his garments, dipped in blood, are like the outpressed juice of grapes. JER 49:11 How beauteous is the King Meshiha, who is to arise from the house of Jehuda!
Binding his loins, and going forth to war against them that hate him, he will slay kings with princes, and make the rivers red with the blood of their slain, and his hills white with the fat of their mighty ones; his garments will be dipped in blood, and he himself be like the juice of the winepress.
GENESIS 49:12 JPS 49:12 His eyes shall be red with wine,
And his teeth white with milk.
ONK 49:12 His mountains shall be red with his vine-yards, and his hills be dropping with wine; his valleys shall be white with corn, and with flocks of sheep. PAL 49:12 How beautiful are the eyes of the king Meshiha, as the pure wine! He cannot look upon what is unclean, nor on the shedding of the blood of the innocent; and his teeth, purer than milk, cannot eat that which is stolen or torn; and therefore his mountains are red with wine, and his hills white with corn, and with the cotes of flocks. JER 49:12 More beautiful are the eyes of the king Meshiha to behold than pure wine; they will not look upon that which is unclean, or the shedding of the blood of the innocent. His teeth are employed according to the precept rather than in eating the things of violence and rapine; his mountains shall be red with vines, and his presses with his wine, and his hills be white with much corn and with flocks of sheep. GENESIS 49:13 JPS 49:13 Zebulun shall dwell at the shore of the sea,
And he shall be a shore for ships,
And his flank shall be upon Zidon.
ONK 49:13 Zebulon will dwell nigh the haven of the sea; he will subdue provinces with ships, and will eat the good of the sea, and his boundary shall come unto Sidon. PAL 49:13 Zebulon shall dwell upon the banks of the sea, and have dominion over the havens; he will surmount the breakers of the sea with ships, and his border will extend unto Zidon. GENESIS 49:14 JPS 49:14 Issachar is a large-boned ass,
Couching down between the sheep-folds.
ONK 49:14 Issakar,(246) 246. Samaritan Version, "Issakar, an ass sojourning, lying down between two burdens." rich in substance, will have his heritage between the boundaries; PAL 49:14 Issakar is an ass in the law; a strong tribe, knowing the order(127) 127. Or, "intention." of the times; and he lieth down between the limits of his brethren. JER 49:14 Issakar is a strong tribe, and his limits shall be in the midst between two boundaries. GENESIS 49:15 JPS 49:15 For he saw a resting-place that it was good,
And the land that it was pleasant;
And he bowed his shoulder to bear,
And became a servant under task-work.
ONK 49:15 and he, seeing his portion that it is good, and the land that it is fruit-bearing,(247) 247. Samaritan Version, "fat." will subdue the provinces of the people, and disperse their inhabitants, and they who remain of them will become servants to him and bringers of tribute. PAL 49:15 And he saw the rest of the world to come that it is good, and the portion of the land of Israel that it is pleasant; therefore bowed he his shoulders to labour in the law, and unto him shali come his brethren bearing presents. JER 49:15 And he saw the house of the sanctuary, which is called Quietness,(130) 130. Menucha. that it is good, and the land that its fruits are rich; and bared his shoulders to labour in the law, and to him shall be all his brethren bringing tribute. GENESIS 49:16 JPS 49:16 Dan shall judge his people,
As one of the tribes of Israel.
ONK 49:16 From the house of Dan will be chosen and will arise a man in whose days his people shall be delivered, and in whose years the tribes of Israel have rest together. PAL 49:16 From the house of Dan there is to arise a man who will judge his people with the judgment of truth. All the tribes of Israel will hearken to him together. GENESIS 49:17 JPS 49:17 Dan shall be a serpent in the way,
A horned snake in the path,
That biteth the horse's heels,
So that his rider falleth backward.
ONK 49:17 A chosen man will arise from the house of Dan, the terror of whom shall fall upon the peoples; (a man) who will smite the Philistines with strength, as the serpent, the deadly serpent,(248) 248. Churman: "species serpentis ad cujus morsum nulla est medicina."Castel. Root, charem, "to devote to destruction." lurking(249) 249. Samaritan Version, "erecting itself." by the way, he will slay the mighty of the Philistines' host, the horsemen with the foot; he will weaken (loosen) the horses and chariots, and throw their riders backward. PAL 49:17 A chosen man shall arise from the house of Dan, like the basilisk which lieth at the dividing of the way, and the serpent's head which lurketh by the way, that biteth the horse in his heel, and the master from his terror is thrown backward. Even thus will Shimshon bar Manovach slay all the heroes of Philistia, the horsemen and the foot; he will hamstring their horses and hurl their riders backwards. JER 49:17 (Of Dan) He will be the deliverer who is to arise, strong will he be and elevated above all kingdoms. And he will be like the serpent that lieth in the way, and the basilisk which lurketh at the dividing of the road, which striketh the horse in his heel, and thinketh by the terror of him to throw his rider backward. He is Shimshon bar Manovach, who will be a terror upon his adversaries, and a fear upon them that hate him, and who will slay kings with princes. GENESIS 49:18 JPS 49:18 I wait for Thy salvation, O Lord. ONK 49:18 For thy salvation have I waited, Lord! PAL 49:18 When Jakob saw Gideon bar Joash and Shimshon bar Manovach, who were established to be deliverers, he said, I expect not the salvation of Gideon, nor look I for the salvation of Shimshon; for their salvation will be the salvation of an hour; but for Thy salvation have I waited, and will look for, Lord; for Thy salvation is the salvation of eternity. JER 49:18 Our father Jakob said, My soul hath not waited for the redemption of Gideon bar Joash which is for an hour, nor for the redemption of Shimshon which is a creature redemption, but for the Redemption which Thou hast said in Thy Word shall come for Thy people the sons of Israel, for this Thy Redemption my soul hath waited. GENESIS 49:19 JPS 49:19 Gad, a troop shall troop upon him;
But he shall troop upon their heel.
ONK 49:19 From the house of Gad will armed hosts go over the Jardena before their brethren to the battle; and with much substance will they return unto their land. PAL 49:19 The tribe of Gad with the rest of the tribes will, armed, pass over the streams of Arnona, and subdue before them the pillars of the earth, and armed will they return into their limits with much substance, and dwell in peace beyond the passage of Jardena; for so will they choose, and it shall be to them to receive their inheritance. JER 49:19 From the house of Gad will go forth hosts arrayed in arms. They will bring Israel over Jardena; put them in possession of the land of Kenaan, and afterwards return in peace to their tabernacles. GENESIS 49:20 JPS 49:20 As for Asher, his bread shall be fat,
And he shall yield royal dainties.
ONK 49:20 The land of Asher will be good; and he shall be nourished with the dainties of kings. PAL 49:20 Happy is Asher, whose fruitage is plenteous, and whose land aboundeth in balsams and costly perfumes. JER 49:20 Of happy Asher, how fertile is the land! His land shall satisfy with dainties the kings of the sons of Israel. GENESIS 49:21 JPS 49:21 Naphtali is a hind let loose:
He giveth goodly words.
ONK 49:21 In a good land will the lot of Naphtali be cast, and his inheritance be fruitful; over them will they give praise and benediction.(250) 250. Samaritan Version, "Naphtali is a hind sent forth, giving words of freedom." PAL 49:21 Naphtali is a swift messenger, like a hind that runneth on the tops of the mountains, bringing good tidings: he it was who announced that Joseph was living; he it was who hasteneth to go into Mizraim, and bring the contract of the double field in which Esau had no portion;(128) 128. See the next chapter. and when he shall open his mouth in the congregation of Israel to give praise, he shall be the chosen of all tongues. JER 49:21 Naphtali is a swift messenger declaring good tidings. He first declared to our father Jakob that Joseph was yet in life, and he went down to Mizraimin a little time, and brought the contract of the Double Field from the palace of Joseph. And when he openeth his mouth in the congregation of Jakob, his tongue is sweet as honey. GENESIS 49:22 JPS 49:22 Joseph is a fruitful vine,
A fruitful vine by a fountain;
Its branches run over the wall.
ONK 49:22 Joseph is my son who shall increase, my son who shall be blessed, as a vine planted by a fountain of waters. Two tribes will come forth from his sons, and they shall receive a portion and inheritance. PAL 49:22 Joseph, my son, thou hast become great; Joseph, my son, thou hast become great and mighty; the end (determined) on thee was (that thou shouldst) be mighty, because thou didst subdue thy inclination in the matter of thy mistress, and in the work of thy brethren. Thee will I liken to a vine planted by fountains of water, which sendeth forth her roots, and overrunneth the ridges of stone, and covereth by her branches all unfruitful trees; even so didst thou my son Joseph subject by thy wisdom and thy good works all the magicians of Mizraim; and when, celebrating thy praises, the daughters of princes walking on the high places cast before thee bracelets and chains of gold, that thou shouldst lift up thine eyes upon them, thine eyes thou wouldst not lift up on one of them, to become guilty in the great day of judgment. JER 49:22 My son who hast become great, Joseph, my son, who hast become great, and waxed mighty, that thou wouldst become mighty was foreseen. Thee, Joseph, my son, will I liken to a vine planted by fountains of water, which sendeth her roots into the depth and striketh the ridges of the rocks, uplifting herself on high and surmounting all the trees. So hast thou, O Joseph my son, risen by thy wisdom above all the magicians of Mizraim, and all the wise men who were there, what time thou didst ride in the second chariot of Pharoh, and they proclaimed before thee and said, This is the father of the king, Long live the father of the king, Great in wisdom, though few in years. And the daughters of kings and of princes danced before thee at the windows, and beheld thee from the balconies, and scattered before thee bracelets, rings, collars, necklaces, and all ornaments of gold, in hope thou wouldst uplift thine eyes and regard one of them. But thou my son Joseph wast far from lifting thine eyes on any one of them, though the daughters of kings and of princes spake one to another, This is the holy man Joseph, who walks not after the sight of his eyes nor after the imagination of his heart; because the sight of the eyes and the imagination of his heart make the son of woman to perish from the world. Therefore will arise from thee the two tribes Menasheh and Ephraim, who shall receive portion and inheritance with their brethren in the dividing of the land. GENESIS 49:23 JPS 49:23 The archers have dealt bitterly with him,
And shot at him, and hated him;
ONK 49:23 The mighty men, the men of division, were bitter against him; they afflicted him and sorely grieved him; and his prophecy shall be fulfilled in them, because he was faithful to the law in secret, and set his confidence firmly. PAL 49:23 And all the magicians of Mizraim were bitter and angry against him, and brought accusations against him before Pharoh, expecting to bring him down from his honour. They spake against him with the slanderous tongue(129) 129. "With triple tongue." Compare the Targum on Psalm 101:5, Psalm 140:11, Ecclesiastes 10:11; and our Introduction. which is severe as arrows. JER 49:23 The magicians of Mizraim and all the wise men spake against him, but could not prevail over him; they spake evil of him before his lord, they accused him before Pharoh king of Mizraim, to bring him down from his dignity; they spake against him in the palace of Pharoh with a slanderous tongue severe as arrows. GENESIS 49:24 JPS 49:24 But his bow abode firm,
And the arms of his hands were made supple,
By the hands of the Mighty One of Jacob,
From thence, from the Shepherd, the Stone of Israel
ONK 49:24 Therefore was gold laid upon his arm, and the kingdom was strengthened and confirmed. This was to him from the mighty God of Jacob, who by His Word pastureth the fathers and the children of the seed of Israel. PAL 49:24 But he returned to abide in his early strength, and would not yield himself unto sin, and subdued his inclinations by the strong discipline he had received from Jakob, and thence became worthy of being a ruler, and of being joined in the engraving of the names upon the stones of Israel. JER 49:24 But the strength of his confidence(131) 131. Or, "fidelity." remained in both his hands and his arms, and he sought mercy from the strength of his father Jakob, under the arms of whose power the tribes of Israel are led, and do come. GENESIS 49:25 JPS 49:25 Even by the God of thy father, who shall help thee,
And by the Almighty, who shall bless thee,
With blessings of heaven above,
Blessings of the deep that coucheth beneath,
Blessings of the breasts, and of the womb.
ONK 49:25 The Word of the God of thy father shall be thy Helper, and the All-Sufficient shall bless thee, with the blessings of the dew that descends from the heavens above, with the blessings that spring from the depths of the earth beneath, with the blessings of thy father and of thy mother. PAL 49:25 From the Word of the Lord shall be thy help; and He who is called the All-Sufficient shall bless thee with the blessings which descend with the dew of heaven from above, and with the good blessing of the fountains of the deep which ascend and clothe the herbage from beneath. The breasts are blessed at which thou wast suckled, and the womb in which thou didst lie. JER 49:25 Blessed are the breasts that suckled thee, and the womb in which thou didst lie. GENESIS 49:26 JPS 49:26 The blessings of thy father
Are mighty beyond the blessings of my progenitors
Unto the utmost bound of the everlasting hills;
They shall be on the head of Joseph,
And on the crown of the head of the prince among his brethren.
ONK 49:26 The blessing of thy father shall be added upon the blessing with which my fathers blessed me; which the princes who are of the world have desired: all of them shall be upon the head of Joseph, and upon the man who was separated from his brethren. PAL 49:26 The blessings of thy father be added to the blessings wherewith my fathers Abraham and Izhak have blessed me, and which the princes of the world Ishmael and Esau and all the sons of Keturah have desired:let all these blessings be united, and form a diadem of majesty for the head of Joseph, and for the brow of the man who became chief and ruler in Mizraim, and the brightness of the glory of his brethren. JER 49:26 The blessing of thy father be added upon thee, upon the blessings wherewith thy fathers Abraham and Izhak who are like mountains blessed thee, and upon the blessing of the four mothers, Sarah, Rivekah, Rahel, and Leah, who are like hills; let all these blessings come, and make a diadem of majesty upon the head of Joseph, and upon the crown of the man who became a chief and ruler in the land of Mizraim, and the brightness of the glory of his brethren. GENESIS 49:27 JPS 49:27 Benjamin is a wolf that raveneth;
In the morning he devoureth the prey,
And at even he divideth the spoil.'
ONK 49:27 Benjamin: in his land will dwell the Shekina, and in his possession will the sanctuary be builded. In the morning and evening(251) 251. Pania. Conf. the Ethiopic in Castel, under panu, co. 3021. will the priests offer the oblation, and at eventime divide the remaining portions of the residue of the sacred things. PAL 49:27 Benjamin is a strong tribe, (like) the wolf (with) his prey. In his land will dwell the Shekina of the Lord of the world, and the house of the sanctuary be builded in his inheritance. In the morning will the priests offer the lamb continually until the fourth hour, and between the evenings the second lamb, and at eventide will they divide the residue remaining of the offering, and eat, every man, his portion. JER 49:27 (Of Benjamin) I will liken him to a ravening wolf. In his limits will the sanctuary be builded, and in his inheritance the glory of the Shekina of the Lord will dwell. In the morning will the priests offer the continual lamb and its oblations, and at the going down of the sun will the priests offer the continual lamb and its oblations, and at evening divide the offerings of the sons of Israel. GENESIS 49:28 JPS 49:28 All these are the twelve tribes of Israel, and this is it that their father spoke unto them and blessed them; every one according to his blessing he blessed them. ONK 49:28 All these the tribes of Israel are twelve; and this it is which their father spake to them, and blessed them; according to the blessing of each man, blessed he them. PAL 49:28 All these Tribes of Israel are twelve: they are all righteous together, and this it is which their father spake to them, and blessed them; according to his blessing blessed he each man. GENESIS 49:29 JPS 49:29 And be charged them, and said unto them: 'I am to be gathered unto my people; bury me with my fathers in the cave that is in the field of Ephron the Hittite, ONK 49:29 And he commanded them, and said to them, I am to be gathered unto my people; bury me with my fathers in the cavern which is in the field of Ephron the Hitaah; PAL 49:29 And he commanded them and said to them, I am to be gathered to my people; bury me with my fathers in the cavern which is in the field of Ephron the Hitah, GENESIS 49:30 JPS 49:30 in the cave that is in the field of Machpelah, which is before Mamre, in the land of Canaan, which Abraham bought with the field from Ephron the Hittite for a possession of a burying-place. ONK 49:30 in the cavern which is in the double field over against Mamre, in the land of Kenaan, which field Abraham bought of Ephron the Hitaah for an inheritance-sepulchre.
