创世记 49

雅各的预言

1雅各把他的儿子们都叫来,对他们说:“你们到我身边来,我要把你们将来的遭遇告诉你们。

“雅各的儿子们啊,
你们都来听,
听你们父亲以色列的话。
吕便啊,你是我的长子,
是我年轻力壮时生的,
比众弟兄更有尊荣和力量。
可是,你必不再居首位,
因为你放纵情欲,
如沸腾不止的水,
你上了你父亲的床,
玷污了我的榻。

“西缅和利未串通一气,
依仗刀剑,残暴不仁。
我的灵啊,不要与他们同谋。
我的心啊,不要与他们联合。
他们泄愤杀人,
随意砍断牛腿的筋。
他们狂暴凶残,该受咒诅!
我要使他们分散在雅各的子孙中,
散居在以色列各地。

“犹大啊,你的兄弟们必赞美你,
你必制服你的仇敌,
你父亲的儿子必向你下拜。
我儿犹大是头小狮子,
他猎食回来,躺卧如雄狮,
蹲伏如母狮,谁敢惊扰他?
10 王权必不离犹大,
御杖必伴他左右,
直到那位执掌王权的来到,
万民都必归顺他。

11 “他把小驴拴在葡萄树旁,
把驴驹拴在上好的葡萄树旁;
他在葡萄酒中洗衣服,
在葡萄汁中洗外袍。
12 他的眼睛比酒乌润,
牙齿比奶洁白。

13 “西布伦必安居在海滨,
成为泊船的港口,
他的疆界必伸展到西顿。

14 “以萨迦是头壮驴,
卧在羊圈中。
15 他见那地方好作安身之处,
地土肥美,就垂下肩头,
做了奴隶。

16 “但必治理他的人民,
作以色列的一个支派。
17 他必成为路边的蛇,
道旁的毒蛇,
咬伤马蹄,使骑马的人坠落。

18 “耶和华啊,
我切切等候你的拯救。

19 “迦得必被强盗劫掠,
他却要反败为胜追赶他们。

20 “亚设必有丰美的出产和供君王享用的美味。

21 “拿弗他利是头自由的母鹿,
养育美丽的小鹿[a]

22 “约瑟是多结果子的枝条,
长在水泉旁,
他的枝条探出墙外。
23 弓箭手凶猛地攻击他,
恶狠狠地射他。
24 但他手持强弓,
双臂稳健有力,
因为雅各的大能者——以色列的牧者和磐石帮助他。
25 你父亲的上帝必帮助你,
全能者必赐你天上的恩泽、
地上的百福,
使你子孙兴旺、牛羊满圈。
26 你父亲的祝福高过亘古永存的峰峦,
多如绵延无尽的群山,
愿这一切的祝福都临到约瑟头上,
临到这超越众弟兄的人身上。

27 “便雅悯是匹贪婪的狼,
早晨吞吃猎物,
晚上瓜分战利品。”

28 以上是以色列的十二支派,他们的父亲按着他们不同的福分给他们祝福。 29 雅各又嘱咐他们说:“我要离世了,你们要把我葬在赫人以弗仑田间的洞里,让我与祖先在一起。 30 那洞穴在迦南幔利附近的麦比拉田间,是亚伯拉罕向赫人以弗仑买来作坟地的。 31 亚伯拉罕和他的妻子撒拉,以撒和他的妻子利百加都葬在那里,我把利亚也葬在了那里。 32 那块田和田间的洞穴是向赫人买的。” 33 雅各嘱咐完众子,在床上躺下,咽了气,去他祖先那里了。

King James Version

Genesis 49

1And Jacob called unto his sons, and said, Gather yourselves together, that I may tell you that which shall befall you in the last days.

Gather yourselves together, and hear, ye sons of Jacob; and hearken unto Israel your father.

Reuben, thou art my firstborn, my might, and the beginning of my strength, the excellency of dignity, and the excellency of power:

Unstable as water, thou shalt not excel; because thou wentest up to thy father's bed; then defiledst thou it: he went up to my couch.

Simeon and Levi are brethren; instruments of cruelty are in their habitations.

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.

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.

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.

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?

10 The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be.

11 Binding his foal unto the vine, and his ass's colt unto the choice vine; he washed his garments in wine, and his clothes in the blood of grapes:

12 His eyes shall be red with wine, and his teeth white with milk.

13 Zebulun shall dwell at the haven of the sea; and he shall be for an haven of ships; and his border shall be unto Zidon.

14 Issachar is a strong ass couching down between two burdens:

15 And he saw that rest was good, and the land that it was pleasant; and bowed his shoulder to bear, and became a servant unto tribute.

16 Dan shall judge his people, as one of the tribes of Israel.

17 Dan shall be a serpent by the way, an adder in the path, that biteth the horse heels, so that his rider shall fall backward.

18 I have waited for thy salvation, O Lord.

19 Gad, a troop shall overcome him: but he shall overcome at the last.

20 Out of Asher his bread shall be fat, and he shall yield royal dainties.

21 Naphtali is a hind let loose: he giveth goodly words.

22 Joseph is a fruitful bough, even a fruitful bough by a well; whose branches run over the wall:

23 The archers have sorely grieved him, and shot at him, and hated him:

24 But his bow abode in strength, and the arms of his hands were made strong by the hands of the mighty God of Jacob; (from thence is the shepherd, the stone of Israel:)

25 Even by the God of thy father, who shall help thee; and by the Almighty, who shall bless thee with blessings of heaven above, blessings of the deep that lieth under, blessings of the breasts, and of the womb:

26 The blessings of thy father have prevailed above the blessings of my progenitors unto the utmost bound of the everlasting hills: they shall be on the head of Joseph, and on the crown of the head of him that was separate from his brethren.

27 Benjamin shall ravin as a wolf: in the morning he shall devour the prey, and at night he shall divide the spoil.

28 All these are the twelve tribes of Israel: and this is it that their father spake unto them, and blessed them; every one according to his blessing he blessed them.

29 And he charged them, and said unto them, I am to be gathered unto my people: bury me with my fathers in the cave that is in the field of Ephron the Hittite,

30 In the cave that is in the field of Machpelah, which is before Mamre, in the land of Canaan, which Abraham bought with the field of Ephron the Hittite for a possession of a buryingplace.

31 There they buried Abraham and Sarah his wife; there they buried Isaac and Rebekah his wife; and there I buried Leah.

32 The purchase of the field and of the cave that is therein was from the children of Heth.

33 And when Jacob had made an end of commanding his sons, he gathered up his feet into the bed, and yielded up the ghost, and was gathered unto his people.
