New International Version
9 You are a lion’s(A) cub,(B) Judah;(C)
you return from the prey,(D) my son.
Like a lion he crouches and lies down,
like a lioness—who dares to rouse him?
10 The scepter will not depart from Judah,(E)
nor the ruler’s staff from between his feet,[a]
until he to whom it belongs[b] shall come(F)
and the obedience of the nations shall be his.(G)
11 He will tether his donkey(H) to a vine,
his colt to the choicest branch;(I)
he will wash his garments in wine,
his robes in the blood of grapes.(J)
