22 “Joseph is a fruitful vine, a fruitful vine near a spring, whose branches climb over a wall.[a] 23 With bitterness archers attacked him; they shot at him with hostility. 24 But his bow remained steady, his strong arms stayed[b] limber, because of the hand of the Mighty One of Jacob, because of the Shepherd, the Rock of Israel, 25 because of your father’s God, who helps you, because of the Almighty,[c] who blesses you with blessings of the skies above, blessings of the deep springs below, blessings of the breast and womb. 26 Your father’s blessings are greater than the blessings of the ancient mountains, than[d] the bounty of the age-old hills. Let all these rest on the head of Joseph, on the brow of the prince among[e] his brothers.
Genesis 49:22Or Joseph is a wild colt, / a wild colt near a spring, / a wild donkey on a terraced hill
