Bible: Deut 33:8-11

Blessing on Levi

33:8 Of Levi he said:

Your Thummim and Urim 1  belong to your godly one, 2 

whose authority you challenged at Massah, 3 

and with whom you argued at the waters of Meribah. 4 

33:9 He said to his father and mother, “I have not seen him,” 5 

and he did not acknowledge his own brothers

or know his own children,

for they kept your word,

and guarded your covenant.

33:10 They will teach Jacob your ordinances

and Israel your law;

they will offer incense as a pleasant odor,

and a whole offering on your altar.

33:11 Bless, O Lord, his goods,

and be pleased with his efforts;

undercut the legs 6  of any who attack him,

and of those who hate him, so that they cannot stand.
