Who Is God

 Jacob Blesses His Sons
P   T   4                   T 3
Israel said to Joseph, “I am about to die, but God
will be with you and take
you back to the land of your fathers. 
22And to you I give one
more ridge of land than
to your brothers, the ridge I took from the
Amorites with my sword
and my bow.”
1Then Jacob called for
his sons and said: 
“Gather around so I can tell you what will happen
to you in days to come.
2“Assemble and listen,
sons of Jacob; to your
father Israel.

3“Reuben, you are my
firstborn, my might, the
first sign of my strength,
excelling in honor,
excelling in power.
4Turbulent as the waters,
you will no longer excel,
for you went up onto your father’s bed, onto
my couch and defiled it.
5“Simeon and Levi are
brothers—their swords are weapons of violence.
6Let me not enter their council, let me not join
their assembly, for they have killed men in their
anger and hamstrung oxen as they pleased.

7Cursed be their anger, so fierce, and their fury,
so cruel! I will scatter them in Jacob and disperse them in Israel.

8“Judah, your brothers
will praise you; your hand will be on the neck
of your enemies; your father’s sons will bow down to you.

9You are a lion’s cub,
Judah; you return from the prey, my son. Like a
lion he crouches and lies
down, like a lioness—
who dares to rouse him?

10The scepter will not depart from Judah, nor the ruler’s staff from between his feet, until he
to whom it belongs shall
come and the obedience of the nations shall be
11He will tether his donkey to a vine, his colt
to the choicest branch; he
will wash his garments in
wine, his robes in the blood of grapes.

12His eyes will be darker
than wine, his teeth
whiter than milk.
13“Zebulun will live by the seashore and become
a haven for ships; his border will extend toward Sidon.

14“Issachar is a rawboned donkey lying down among the sheep pens.
15When he sees how good is his resting place
and how pleasant is his land, he will bend his shoulder to the burden and submit to forced

16“Dan will provide justice for his people as
one of the tribes of Israel.
17Dan will be a snake by
the roadside, a viper along the path, that bites
the horse’s heels so that
its rider tumbles backward.
18“I look for your deliverance, Lord.
------------------------------19“Gad will be attacked
by a band of raiders, but
he will attack them at their heels.
20“Asher’s food will be
rich; he will provide delicacies fit for a king.
21“Naphtali is a doe set free that bears beautiful
22“Joseph is a fruitful
vine, a fruitful vine near
a spring, whose branches
climb over a wall.
23With bitterness archers
attacked him; they shot at
him with hostility.
24But his bow remained
steady, his strong arms stayed limber, because of
the hand of the Mighty One of Jacob, because of
the Shepherd, the Rock of Israel,
25because of your
father’s God, who helps
you, because of the Almighty, who blesses you with blessings of the
skies above, blessings of the deep springs below,
blessings of the breast
and womb.
26Your father’s blessings
are greater than the blessings of the ancient mountains, than the bounty of the age-old hills. Let all these rest on
the head of Joseph, on the brow of the prince among his brothers.
27“Benjamin is a ravenous wolf; in the morning he devours the prey, in the evening he divides the plunder.”

28All these are the twelve tribes of Israel, and this is what their father said to them when he blessed them, giving
each the blessing appropriate to him.
God promises is sure

God promise to Abraham
was fulfilled by his son
Jacob, who brought forth
the twelve tribes of  Israel; which still exist
to this very day.
