“Joseph is like a ·grapevine that produces much fruit [or fruitful bough/tree; or foal of a wild donkey] a ·healthy vine [or fruitful bough/tree; or foal of a wild donkey] ·watered by [L by] a spring, ·whose branches grow over the wall [or a wild donkey on a hillside].
Naphtali is a deer running free that gives birth to lovely fawns. Joseph is a wild donkey, a wild donkey by a spring, spirited donkeys on a hill. The archers with malice attacked, shooting their hate-tipped arrows; But he held steady under fire, his bow firm, his arms limber, With the backing of the Champion of Jacob, the Shepherd, the Rock of Israel. The God of your father—may he help you! And may The Strong God—may he give you his blessings, Blessings tumbling out of the skies, blessings bursting up from the Earth— blessings of breasts and womb. May the blessings of your father exceed the blessings of the ancient mountains, surpass the delights of the eternal hills; May they rest on the head of Joseph, on the brow of the one consecrated among his brothers.
