GEN 49:6 O my soul, come not thou into their secret; unto their
assembly, mine honour, be not thou united: for in their anger they slew
a man, and in their selfwill they digged down a wall.
GEN 49:7 Cursed be their anger, for it was fierce; and their wrath, for
it was cruel: I will divide them in Jacob, and scatter them in Israel.
GEN 49:8 Judah, thou art he whom thy brethren shall praise: thy hand
shall be in the neck of thine enemies; thy father's children shall bow
down before thee.
GEN 49:9 Judah is a lion's whelp: from the prey, my son, thou art gone
up: he stooped down, he couched as a lion, and as an old lion; who shall
rouse him up?
