Parashah 54: V’Zot HaBrachah (This is the blessing)

33 This is the blessing that Moshe, the man of God, spoke over the people of Isra’el before his death:

   2 Adonai came from Sinai;
from Se‘ir he dawned on his people,
shone forth from Mount Pa’ran;
and with him were myriads of holy ones;
at his right hand
was a fiery law for them.
   3 He truly loves the peoples —
all his holy ones are in your hand;
sitting at your feet,
they receive your instruction,
   4 the Torah Moshe commanded us
as an inheritance for the community of Ya‘akov.
   5 Then a king arose in Yeshurun
when the leaders of the people were gathered,
all the tribes of Isra’el together.

   6 “Let Re’uven live and not die out,
even though his numbers grow few.”

Of Y’hudah he said:

“Hear, Adonai, the cry of Y’hudah!
Bring him in to his people,
let his own hands defend him;
but you, help him against his enemies.”
