12 His eyes shall be more cheering than wine, and his teeth whiter than milk. 13 Zabulon shall dwell on the coast, and he [shall be] by a haven of ships, and shall extend to Sidon. 14 Issachar has desired that which is good; resting between the inheritances. 15 And having seen the resting place that it was good, and the land that it was fertile, he subjected his shoulder to labour, and became a husbandman. 16 Dan shall judge his people, as one tribe too in Israel. 17 And let Dan be a serpent in the way, besetting the path, biting the heel of the horse (and the rider shall fall backward), 18 waiting for the salvation of the Lord. 19 Gad, a plundering troop shall plunder him; but he shall plunder him, [pursuing him] closely. 20 Aser, his bread [shall be] fat; and he shall yield dainties to princes. 21 Nephthalim is a spreading stem, bestowing beauty on its fruit. 22 Joseph is a son increased; my dearly loved son is increased; my youngest son, turn to me. 23 Against whom men taking evil counsel reproached [him], and the archers pressed hard upon him. 24 But their bow and arrows were mightily consumed, and the sinews of their arms were slackened by the hand of the mighty one of Jacob; thence is he that strengthened Israel from the God of thy father; 25 and my God helped thee, and he blessed the with the blessing of heaven from above, and the blessing of the earth possessing all things, because of the blessing of the breasts and of the womb, 26 the blessings of thy father and thy mother-- it has prevailed above the blessing of the lasting mountains, and beyond the blessings of the everlasting hills; they shall be upon the head of Joseph, and upon the head of the brothers of whom he took the lead.

12 χαροποιοὶ οἱ ὀφθαλμοὶ αὐτοῦ ἀπὸ οἴνου, καὶ λευκοὶ οἱ ὀδόντες αὐτοῦ ἢ γάλα. 13 Ζαβουλὼν παράλιος κατοικήσει, καὶ αὐτὸς παρ᾿ ὅρμον πλοίων, καὶ παρατενεῖ ἕως Σιδῶνος. 14 ᾿Ισσάχαρ τὸ καλὸν ἐπεθύμησεν ἀναπαυόμενος ἀνὰ μέσον τῶν κλήρων· 15 καὶ ἰδὼν τὴν ἀνάπαυσιν ὅτι καλή, καὶ τὴν γῆν ὅτι πίων, ὑπέθηκε τὸν ὦμον αὐτοῦ εἰς τὸ πονεῖν καὶ ἐγενήθη ἀνὴρ γεωργός. 16 Δὰν κρινεῖ τὸ λαὸν αὐτοῦ, ὡσεὶ καὶ μία φυλὴ ἐν ᾿Ισραήλ. 17 καὶ γενηθήτω Δὰν ὄφις ἐφ᾿ ὁδοῦ, ἐγκαθήμενος ἐπὶ τρίβου, δάκνων πτέρναν ἵππου, καὶ πεσεῖται ὁ ἱππεὺς εἰς τὰ ὀπίσω, 18 τὴν σωτηρίαν περιμένων Κυρίου. 19 Γάδ, πειρατήριον πειρατεύσει αὐτόν, αὐτὸς δὲ πειρατεύσει αὐτὸν κατὰ πόδας. 20 ᾿Ασήρ, πίων αὐτοῦ ὁ ἄρτος, καὶ αὐτὸς δώσει τρυφὴν ἄρχουσι. 21 Νεφθαλεὶμ στέλεχος ἀνειμένον, ἐπιδιδοὺς ἐν τῷ γεννήματι κάλλος. 22 υἱὸς ηὐξημένος ᾿Ιωσήφ, υἱὸς ηὐξημένος μου ζηλωτός, υἱός μου νεώτατος· πρός με ἀνάστρεψον. 23 εἰς ὃν διαβουλευόμενοι ἐλοιδόρουν, καὶ ἐνεῖχον αὐτῷ κύριοι τοξευμάτων· 24 καὶ συνετρίβη μετὰ κράτους τὰ τόξα αὐτῶν, καὶ ἐξελύθη τὰ νεῦρα βραχιόνων χειρὸς αὐτῶν διά χεῖρα δυνάστου ᾿Ιακώβ, ἐκεῖθεν ὁ κατισχύσας ᾿Ισραήλ· παρὰ Θεοῦ τοῦ πατρός σου, 25 καὶ ἐβοήθησέ σοι ὁ Θεὸς ὁ ἐμὸς καὶ εὐλόγησέ σε εὐλογίαν οὐρανοῦ ἄνωθεν καὶ εὐλογίαν γῆς ἐχούσης πάντα· εἵνεκεν εὐλογίας μαστῶν καὶ μήτρας, 26 εὐλογίας πατρός σου καὶ μητρός σου· ὑπερίσχυσεν ὑπὲρ εὐλογίας ὀρέων μονίμων καὶ ἐπ᾿ εὐλογίαις θινῶν ἀενάων· ἔσονται ἐπὶ κεφαλὴν ᾿Ιωσὴφ καὶ ἐπὶ κορυφῆς ὧν ἡγήσατο ἀδελφῶν.
