1 And this [is] the blessing with which Moses the man of God blessed the children of Israel before his death. 2 And he said, The Lord is come from Sina, and has appeared from Seir to us, and has hasted out of the mount of Pharan, with the ten thousands of Cades; on his right hand [were] his angels with him. 3 And he spared his people, and all his sanctified ones [are] under thy hands; and they are under thee; and he received of his words 4 the law which Moses charged us, an inheritance to the assemblies of Jacob. 5 And he shall be prince with the beloved one, when the princes of the people are gathered together with the tribes of Israel. 6 Let Ruben live, and not die; and let him be many in number. 7 And this [is the blessing] of Juda; Hear, Lord, the voice of Juda, and do thou visit his people: his hands shall contend for him, and thou shalt be a help from his enemies. 8 And to Levi he said, Give to Levi his manifestations, and his truth to the holy man, whom they tempted in the temptation; they reviled him at the water of strife. 9 Who says to his father and mother, I have not seen thee; and he knew not his brethren, and he refused to know his sons: he kept thine oracles, and observed thy covenant. 10 They shall declare thine ordinances to Jacob, and thy law to Israel: they shall place incense in [the time of] thy wrath continually upon thine altar. 11 Bless, Lord, his strength, and accept the works of his hands; break the loins of his enemies that have risen up against him, and let not them that hate him rise up. 12 And to Benjamin he said, The beloved of the Lord shall dwell in confidence, and God overshadows him always, and he rested between his shoulders. 13 And to Joseph he said, His land [is] of the blessing of the Lord, of the seasons of sky and dew, and of the deeps of wells below, 14 and of the fruits of the changes of the sun in season, and of the produce of the months, 15 from the top of the ancient mountains, and from the top of the everlasting hills, 16 and of the fullness of the land in season: and let the things pleasing to him that dwelt [ὀφθέντι: was seen] in the bush come on the head of Joseph, and on the crown [of him who was] glorified above his brethren. 17 His beauty [is as] the firstling of his bull, his horns [are] the horns of a unicorn; with them he shall thrust the nations at once, even from the end of the earth: these [are] the ten thousands of Ephraim, and these [are] the thousands of Manasse. 18 And to Zabulon he said, Rejoice, Zabulon, in thy going out, and Issachar in his tents. 19 They shall utterly destroy the nations, and ye shall call [men] there, and there offer the sacrifice of righteousness; for the wealth of the sea shall suckle thee, and so shall the marts of them that dwell by the sea-coast. 20 And to Gad he said, Blessed [be] he that enlarges Gad: as a lion he rested, having broken the arm and the ruler. 21 And he saw his first-fruits, that there the land of the princes gathered with the chiefs of the people was divided; the Lord wrought righteousness, and his judgment with Israel. 22 And to Dan he said, Dan [is] a lion’s whelp, and shall leap out of Basan. 23 And to Nephthali he said, Nephthali [has] the fulness of good things; and let him be filled with blessing from the Lord: he shall inherit the west and the south. 24 And to Aser he said, Aser [is] blessed with children; and he shall be acceptable to his brethren: he shall dip his foot in oil. 25 His sandal shall be iron and brass; as thy days, so [shall be] thy strength. 26 There is not [any such] as the God of the beloved; he who rides upon the heaven [is] thy helper, and the magnificent One of the firmament. 27 And the rule of God shall protect thee, and [that] under the strength of the everlasting arms; and he shall cast forth the enemy from before thy face, saying, Perish. 28 And Israel shall dwell in confidence alone on the land of Jacob, with corn and wine; and the sky [shall be] misty with dew upon thee. 29 Blessed [art] thou, O Israel; who [is] like to thee, O people saved by the Lord? thy helper shall hold his shield over thee, and [his] sword [is] thy boast; and thine enemies shall speak falsely to thee, and thou shalt tread upon their neck. ΚΑΙ αὕτη ἡ εὐλογία ἣν ηὐλόγησε Μωυσῆς ἄνθρωπος τοῦ Θεοῦ τοὺς υἱοὺς ᾿Ισραὴλ πρὸ τῆς τελευτῆς αὐτοῦ· 2 καὶ εἶπε· Κύριος ἐκ Σινὰ ἥκει καὶ ἐπέφανεν ἐκ Σηεὶρ ἡμῖν καὶ κατέσπευσεν ἐξ ὄρους Φαρὰν σὺν μυριάσι Κάδης, ἐκ δεξιῶν αὐτοῦ ἄγγελοι μετ᾿ αὐτοῦ. 3 καὶ ἐφείσατο τοῦ λαοῦ αὐτοῦ, καὶ πάντες οἱ ἡγιασμένοι ὑπὸ τὰς χεῖράς σου· καὶ οὗτοι ὑπὸ σέ εἰσι, καὶ ἐδέξατο ἀπὸ τῶν λόγων αὐτοῦ 4 νόμον, ὃν ἐνετείλατο ἡμῖν Μωυσῆς, κληρονομίαν συναγωγαῖς ᾿Ιακώβ. 5 καὶ ἔσται ἐν τῷ ἠγαπημένῳ ἄρχων, συναχθέντων ἀρχόντων λαῶν ἅμα φυλαῖς ᾿Ισραήλ. 6 ζήτω Ῥουβὴν καὶ μὴ ἀποθανέτω καὶ ἔστω πολὺς ἐν ἀριθμῷ. 7 καὶ αὕτη ᾿Ιούδα. εἰσάκουσον, Κύριε, φωνῆς ᾿Ιούδα, καὶ εἰς τὸν λαὸν αὐτοῦ εἰσέλθοισαν· αἱ χεῖρες αὐτοῦ διακρινοῦσιν αὐτῷ, καὶ βοηθὸς ἐκ τῶν ἐχθρῶν αὐτοῦ ἔσῃ. 8 καὶ τῷ Λευὶ εἶπε· δότε Λευὶ δήλους αὐτοῦ καὶ ἀλήθειαν αὐτοῦ, τῷ ἀνδρὶ τῷ ὁσίῳ, ὃν ἐπείρασαν αὐτὸν ἐν πείρᾳ, ἐλοιδόρησαν αὐτὸν ἐπὶ ὕδατος ἀντιλογίας· 9 ὁ λέγων τῷ πατρὶ καὶ τῇ μητρί· οὐχ ἑώρακά σε, καὶ τοὺς ἀδελφοὺς αὐτοῦ οὐκ ἐπέγνω καὶ τοὺς υἱοὺς αὐτοῦ ἀπέγνω· ἐφύλαξε τὰ λόγιά σου καὶ τὴν διαθήκην σου διετήρησε. 10 δηλώσουσι τὰ δικαιώματά σου τῷ ᾿Ιακὼβ καὶ τὸν νόμον σου τῷ ᾿Ισραήλ· ἐπιθήσουσι θυμίαμα ἐν ὀργῇ σου διὰ παντὸς ἐπὶ τὸ θυσιαστήριόν σου. 11 εὐλόγησον, Κύριε, τὴν ἰσχὺν αὐτοῦ καὶ τά ἔργα τῶν χειρῶν αὐτοῦ δέξαι· κάταξον ὀσφὺν ἐχθρῶν ἐπανεστηκότων αὐτῷ, καὶ οἱ μισοῦντες αὐτὸν μὴ ἀναστήτωσαν. 12 καὶ τῷ Βενιαμὶν εἶπεν· ἠγαπημένος ὑπὸ Κυρίου κατασκηνώσει πεποιθώς, καὶ ὁ Θεὸς σκιάζει ἐπ᾿ αὐτῷ πάσας τὰς ἡμέρας, καὶ ἀνὰ μέσον τῶν ὤμων αὐτοῦ κατέπαυσε. 13 καὶ τῷ ᾿Ιωσὴφ εἶπεν· ἀπ᾿ εὐλογίας Κυρίου ἡ γῆ αὐτοῦ, ἀπὸ ὡρῶν οὐρανοῦ καὶ δρόσου καὶ ἀπὸ ἀβύσσων πηγῶν κάτωθεν 14 καὶ καθ᾿ ὥραν γενημάτων ἡλίου τροπῶν καὶ ἀπὸ συνόδων μηνῶν, 15 ἀπὸ κορυφῆς ὀρέων ἀρχῆς καὶ ἀπὸ κορυφῆς βουνῶν ἀενάων 16 καὶ καθ᾿ ὥραν γῆς πληρώσεως. καὶ τὰ δεκτὰ τῷ ὀφθέντι ἐν τῇ βάτῳ ἔλθοισαν ἐπὶ κεφαλὴν ᾿Ιωσήφ, καὶ ἐπὶ κορυφῆς δοξασθεὶς ἐπ᾿ ἀδελφοῖς. 17 πρωτότοκος ταύρου τὸ κάλλος αὐτοῦ, κέρατα μονοκέρωτος τὰ κέρατα αὐτοῦ· ἐν αὐτοῖς ἔθνη κερατιεῖ ἅμα ἕως ἀπ᾿ ἄκρου γῆς. αὗται μυριάδες ᾿Εφραΐμ, καὶ αὗται χιλιάδες Μανασσῆ. 18 καὶ τῷ Ζαβουλὼν εἶπεν· εὐφράνθητι, Ζαβουλών, ἐν ἐξοδίᾳ σου καὶ ᾿Ισσάχαρ ἐν τοῖς σκηνώμασιν αὐτοῦ. 19 ἔθνη ἐξολοθρεύσουσι, καὶ ἐπικαλέσεσθε ἐκεῖ καὶ θύσετε ἐκεῖ θυσίαν δικαιοσύνης, ὅτι πλοῦτος θαλάσσης θηλάσει σε καὶ ἐμπόρια παράλιον κατοικούντων. 20 καὶ τῷ Γὰδ εἶπεν· εὐλογημένος ἐμπλατύνων Γάδ· ὡς λέων ἐνεπαύσατο, συντρίψας βραχίονα καὶ ἄρχοντα. 21 καὶ εἶδεν ἀπαρχὴν αὐτοῦ, ὅτι ἐκεῖ ἐμερίσθη γῆ ἀρχόντων συνηγμένων ἅμα ἀρχηγοῖς λαῶν· δικαιοσύνην Κύριος ἐποίησε καὶ κρίσιν αὐτοῦ μετὰ ᾿Ισραήλ. 22 καὶ τῷ Δὰν εἶπε· Δὰν σκύμνος λέοντος καὶ ἐκπηδήσεται ἐκ τοῦ Βασάν. 23 καὶ τῷ Νεφθαλὶ εἶπε· Νεφθαλὶ πλησμονὴ δεκτῶν καὶ ἐμπλησθήτω εὐλογίας παρὰ Κυρίου· θάλασσαν καὶ λίβα κληρονομήσει. 24 καὶ τῷ ᾿Ασὴρ εἶπεν· εὐλογημένος ἀπὸ τέκνων ᾿Ασὴρ καὶ ἔσται δεκτὸς τοῖς ἀδελφοῖς αὐτοῦ. βάψει ἐν ἐλαίῳ τὸν πόδα αὐτοῦ· 25 σίδηρος καὶ χαλκὸς τὸ ὑπόδημα αὐτοῦ ἔσται, ὡς αἱ ἡμέραι σου ἡ ἰσχύς σου. 26 οὔκ ἐστιν ὥσπερ ὁ Θεὸς τοῦ ἠγαπημένου· ὁ ἐπιβαίνων ἐπὶ τὸν οὐρανὸν βοηθός σου καὶ ὁ μεγαλοπρεπὴς τοῦ στερεώματος. 27 καὶ σκεπάσει σε Θεοῦ ἀρχὴ καὶ ὑπὸ ἰσχὺ βραχιόνων ἀενάων καὶ ἐκβαλεῖ ἀπὸ προσώπου σου ἐχθρὸν λέγων· ἀπόλοιο. 28 καὶ κατασκηνώσει ᾿Ισραὴλ πεποιθὼς μόνος ἐπὶ γῆς ᾿Ιακώβ, ἐπὶ σίτῳ καὶ οἴνῳ, καὶ ὁ οὐρανὸς αὐτῷ συνεφφὴς δρόσῳ. 29 μακάριος σύ, ᾿Ισραήλ· τίς ὅμοιός σοι λαὸς σωζόμενος ὑπὸ Κυρίου; ὑπερασπιεῖ ὁ βοηθός σου, καὶ ἡ μάχαιρα καύχημά σου· καὶ ψεύσονταί σε οἱ ἐχθροί σου, καὶ σὺ ἐπὶ τὸν τράχηλον αὐτῶν ἐπιβήσῃ.
