Genesis 49:2Modern English Version (MEV)
2 Gather yourselves together and hear, sons of Jacob,
and listen to your father Israel.
Genesis 49:8-10Modern English Version (MEV)
8 Judah, your brothers shall praise you;
your hand shall be on the neck of your enemies;
your father’s sons will bow down before you.
9 Judah is a lion’s cub;
from the prey, my son, you have gone up.
He crouches and lies down like a lion;
and as a lion, who dares rouse him?
10 The scepter shall not depart from Judah,
nor a lawgiver from between his feet,
until Shiloh comes;
and to him will be the obedience of the people.
