Moses’ Blessings

33 This is the blessing that Moses, the man of God, gave the Israelites before his death. He said:

The Lord came from Sinai
and appeared to them from Seir;
He shone on them from Mount Paran
and came with ten thousand holy ones,[a]
with lightning[b] from His right hand[c] for them.
Indeed He loves the people.[d]
All Your[e] holy ones[f] are in Your hand,
and they assemble[g] at Your feet.
Each receives Your words.
Moses gave us instruction,
a possession for the assembly of Jacob.
So He became King in Jeshurun[h]
when the leaders of the people gathered
with the tribes of Israel.
