Genesis 49:25-27 English Standard Version (ESV)

25 by the God of your father who will help you,
    by the Almighty[a] who will bless you
    with blessings of heaven above,
blessings of the deep that crouches beneath,
    blessings of the breasts and of the womb.
26 The blessings of your father
    are mighty beyond the blessings of my parents,
    up to the bounties of the everlasting hills.[b]
May they be on the head of Joseph,
    and on the brow of him who was set apart from his brothers.

27 “Benjamin is a ravenous wolf,
    in the morning devouring the prey
    and at evening dividing the spoil.”

Genesis 49:25-27 New International Version (NIV)

25 because of your father’s God, who helps you,
    because of the Almighty,[a] 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[b] the bounty of the age-old hills.
Let all these rest on the head of Joseph,
    on the brow of the prince among[c] his brothers.

27 “Benjamin is a ravenous wolf;
    in the morning he devours the prey,
    in the evening he divides the plunder.”
