22 “Joseph is a fruitful bough,
A fruitful bough by a well;
His branches run over the wall.
23 The archers have (A)bitterly grieved him,
Shot at him and hated him.
24 But his (B)bow remained in strength,
And the arms of his hands were [a]made strong
By the hands of (C)the Mighty God of Jacob
(D)(From there (E)is the Shepherd, (F)the Stone of Israel),
25 (G)By the God of your father who will help you,
(H)And by the Almighty (I)who will bless you
With blessings of heaven above,
Blessings of the deep that lies beneath,
Blessings of the breasts and of the womb.
26 The blessings of your father
Have excelled the blessings of my ancestors,
(J)Up to the utmost bound of the everlasting hills.
(K)They shall be on the head of Joseph,
And on the crown of the head of him who was separate from his brothers.
