Deuteronomy 33:5-7 Evangelical Heritage Version (EHV)

The Lord was King in Jeshurun,[a]
when the heads of the people gathered
together with the tribes of Israel.

May Reuben live and not die,
but may his men be few in number.[b]

Concerning Judah he said this:
Hear, O Lord, the voice of Judah,
and bring him to his people.
With his own hands he fights for them,
and you will be a help against his enemies.


  1. Deuteronomy 33:5 Jeshurun is another name for Israel. It means the Upright One.
  2. Deuteronomy 33:6 Or nor let his men be few. This translation in the footnote applies the negative from the first line of the parallelism also to the second line, a phenomenon not too uncommon in Hebrew poetry.
