25 The God of your father, who helps you,[a]
    God Almighty, who blesses you,
With the blessings of the heavens above,
    the blessings of the abyss that crouches below,
The blessings of breasts and womb,
26     the blessings of fresh grain and blossoms,
    the blessings of the everlasting mountains,
    the delights of the eternal hills.
May they rest on the head of Joseph,
    on the brow of the prince among his brothers.

27 “Benjamin is a ravenous wolf;
    mornings he devours the prey,
    and evenings he distributes the spoils.”
