New International Version
8 “Judah,[a](A) your brothers will praise you;
your hand will be on the neck(B) of your enemies;
your father’s sons will bow down to you.(C)
9 You are a lion’s(D) cub,(E) Judah;(F)
you return from the prey,(G) 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,(H)
nor the ruler’s staff from between his feet,[b]
until he to whom it belongs[c] shall come(I)
and the obedience of the nations shall be his.(J)
