    because of the Almighty,[a](C) who blesses you
with blessings of the skies above,
    blessings of the deep springs below,(D)

    than the blessings of the ancient mountains,
    than[b] the bounty of the age-old hills.(G)
Let all these rest on the head of Joseph,(H)
    on the brow of the prince among[c] his brothers.(I)

27 “Benjamin(J) is a ravenous wolf;(K)
    in the morning he devours the prey,(L)
    in the evening he divides the plunder.”(M)
