Moses said about the tribe of Reuben:

“May Reuben never die out,
Although their people are few.”

About the tribe of Judah he said:

Lord, listen to their cry for help;
Unite them again with the other tribes.
Fight for them, Lord,
And help them against their enemies.”[a]

(A)About the tribe of Levi he said:

“You, Lord, reveal your will by the Urim and Thummim[b]
Through your faithful servants, the Levites;
You put them to the test at Massah
And proved them true at the waters of Meribah.
