25 Your father’s God helps you.
    God Almighty blesses you.
He blesses you with ·rain [L blessings] from above,
    with ·water from springs below [L the blessings of the deep that crouches below],
with ·many babies born to your wives
    and many young ones born to your animals [L the blessings of breasts and womb]
26 The blessings of your father are greater
    than the blessings of the ·oldest [or eternal] mountains,
    greater than the ·good things [delight] of the long-lasting hills.
May these blessings rest on the head of Joseph,
    on the forehead of the one who was ·separated from [or prince among] his brothers [C Ephraim would become the dominant tribe in northern Israel].

27 “Benjamin is like a hungry wolf.
    In the morning he eats ·what he has caught [prey],
    and in the evening he divides ·what he has taken [the plunder].”
