Deuteronomy 33:5-7 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

A king arose[a] in Jeshurun
    when the chiefs of the people assembled,
    and the tribes of Israel united.

May Reuben live and not die out,
    but let his numbers be few.

Of Judah he said this:

Hear, Lord, the voice of Judah,
    and bring him to his people.[b]
His own hands defend his cause;
    be a help against his foes.


  1. 33:5 A king arose: it is unclear whether this refers to divine kingship or the beginning of the monarchy in Israel. Jeshurun: see note on 32:15.
  2. 33:7 Bring him to his people: this probably refers to the isolated position of the tribe of Judah (cf. Jgs 1:17–19); according to some commentators the reference is to the divided kingdom.
