He said about Levi:

Your Thummim and Urim belong to Your faithful one;[a]
You tested him at Massah
and contended with him at the waters of Meribah.(A)
He said about his father and mother,
“I do not regard them.”
He disregarded his brothers
and didn’t acknowledge his sons,
for they kept Your word
and maintained Your covenant.(B)
10 They will teach Your ordinances to Jacob
and Your instruction to Israel;(C)
they will set incense before You
and whole burnt offerings on Your altar.
11 Lord, bless his possessions,[b]
and accept the work of his hands.
Smash the loins of his adversaries and enemies,
so that they cannot rise again.
