Bible: Genesis 49:22-26

49:22 Joseph is a fruitful bough, 1 

a fruitful bough near a spring

whose branches 2  climb over the wall.

49:23 The archers will attack him, 3 

they will shoot at him and oppose him.

49:24 But his bow will remain steady,

and his hands 4  will be skillful;

because of the hands of the Mighty One of Jacob,

because of 5  the Shepherd, the Rock 6  of Israel,

49:25 because of the God of your father,

who will help you, 7 

because of the sovereign God, 8 

who will bless you 9 

with blessings from the sky above,

blessings from the deep that lies below,

and blessings of the breasts and womb. 10 

49:26 The blessings of your father are greater

than 11  the blessings of the eternal mountains 12 

or the desirable things of the age-old hills.

They will be on the head of Joseph

and on the brow of the prince of his brothers. 13
