Genesis 49:19-26

19 “Gad [troop]— a troop will troop on him,
but he will troop on their heel.

20 “Asher’s food is rich —
he will provide food fit for a king.

21 “Naftali is a doe set free
that bears beautiful fawns.

22 “Yosef is a fruitful plant,
a fruitful plant by a spring,
with branches climbing over the wall.

23 The archers attacked him fiercely,
shooting at him and pressing him hard;

24 but his bow remained taut;
and his arms were made nimble
by the hands of the Mighty One of Ya‘akov,
from there, from the Shepherd, the Stone of Isra’el,

25 by the God of your father, who will help you,
by El Shaddai, who will bless you
with blessings from heaven above,
blessings from the deep, lying below,
blessings from the breasts and the womb.

26 The blessings of your father are more powerful
than the blessings of my parents,
extending to the farthest of the everlasting hills;
they will be on the head of Yosef,
on the brow of the prince among his brothers.
