24 But his bow remained steady,(A)
    his strong arms(B) stayed[a] limber,
because of the hand of the Mighty One of Jacob,(C)
    because of the Shepherd,(D) the Rock of Israel,(E)
25 because of your father’s God,(F) who helps(G) you,
    because of the Almighty,[b](H) who blesses you
with blessings of the skies above,
    blessings of the deep springs below,(I)
    blessings of the breast(J) and womb.(K)
26 Your father’s blessings are greater
    than the blessings of the ancient mountains,
    than[c] the bounty of the age-old hills.(L)
Let all these rest on the head of Joseph,(M)
    on the brow of the prince among[d] his brothers.(N)
