25 by the God of your father who will help you,
    by God Almighty[a] who will bless you
    with blessings of heaven above,
blessings of the deep that couches beneath,
    blessings of the breasts and of the womb.
26 The blessings of your father
    are mighty beyond the blessings of the eternal mountains,[b]
    the bounties of the everlasting hills;
may they be on the head of Joseph,
    and on the brow of him who was separate from his brothers.

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