49:1 Jacob called to his sons, and said: "Gather yourselves together, that I may tell you that which will happen to you in the days to come.
49:2 Assemble yourselves, and hear, you sons of Jacob; Listen to Israel, your father.
49:7 Cursed be their anger, for it was fierce; Their wrath, for it was cruel. I will divide them in Jacob, Scatter them in Israel.
49:9 Judah is a lion`s whelp. From the prey, my son, you have gone up. He stooped down, he couched as a lion, As a lioness. Who will rouse him up?
49:10 The scepter will not depart from Judah, Nor the ruler`s staff from between his feet, Until Shiloh comes. To him will the obedience of the peoples be.

49:18 I have waited for your salvation, Yahweh.

49:26 The blessings of your father Have prevailed above the blessings of the ancient mountains, Than the bounty of the age-old hills. They will be on the head of Joseph, On the crown of the head of him who is separated from his brothers.
49:28 All these are the twelve tribes of Israel, and this is what their father spoke to them and blessed them. He blessed everyone according to his blessing.
49:31 There they buried Abraham and Sarah, his wife. There they buried Isaac and Rebekah, his wife, and there I buried Leah:
