 katapi NEW STUDY BIBLE<< Deuteronomy:33 >>Biblia Hebraica (Stuttgartensia) | BHS (pdf - 3.5mb)  

1 This is the blessing with which Moses the man of God blessed the children of Israel before his death. Moses blesses the people of Israel. Dt.33.1-29וְזֹאת הַבְּרָכָה אֲשֶׁר בֵּרַךְ מֹשֶׁה אִישׁ הָאֱלֹהִים אֶת־בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל לִפְנֵי מֹותֹו׃
2 He said,

"Yahweh came from Sinai, and dawned from Seir upon us;
he shone forth from Mount Paran,
he came from the ten thousands of holy ones,
with flaming fire at his right hand.

 וַיֹּאמַר יְהוָה מִסִּינַי בָּא וְזָרַח מִשֵּׂעִיר לָמֹו הֹופִיעַ מֵהַר פָּארָן וְאָתָה מֵרִבְבֹת קֹדֶשׁ מִימִינֹו {כ= אֵשְׁדָּת} {ק= אֵשׁ} {ק= דָּת} לָמֹו׃
3 Yea, he loved his people;
all those consecrated to him were in his hand;
so they followed in your steps,
receiving direction from you,
 אַף חֹבֵב עַמִּים כָּל־קְדֹשָׁיו בְּיָדֶךָ וְהֵם תֻּכּוּ לְרַגְלֶךָ יִשָּׂא מִדַּבְּרֹתֶיךָ׃
4 when Moses commanded us a law,
as a possession for the assembly of Jacob.
 תֹּורָה צִוָּה־לָנוּ מֹשֶׁה מֹורָשָׁה קְהִלַּת יַעֲקֹב׃
5 Thus Yahweh became king in Jeshurun,
when the heads of the people were gathered,
all the tribes of Israel together.
 וַיְהִי בִישֻׁרוּן מֶלֶךְ בְּהִתְאַסֵּף רָאשֵׁי עָם יַחַד שִׁבְטֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל׃
6 "Let Reuben live, and not die,
nor let his men be few."
 יְחִי רְאוּבֵן וְאַל־יָמֹת וִיהִי מְתָיו מִסְפָּר׃ ס
7 And this he said of Judah:

"Hear, O Yahweh, the voice of Judah,
and bring him in to his people.
With your hands contend for him,
and be a help against his adversaries."

 וְזֹאת לִיהוּדָה וַיֹּאמַר שְׁמַע יְהוָה קֹול יְהוּדָה וְאֶל־עַמֹּו תְּבִיאֶנּוּ יָדָיו רָב לֹו וְעֵזֶר מִצָּרָיו תִּהְיֶה׃ ס
8 And of Levi he said,

"Give to Levi your Thummim,
and your Urim to your godly one,
whom you tested at Massah,
with whom you contended at the waters of Meribah;

 וּלְלֵוִי אָמַר תֻּמֶּיךָ וְאוּרֶיךָ לְאִישׁ חֲסִידֶךָ אֲשֶׁר נִסִּיתֹו בְּמַסָּה תְּרִיבֵהוּ עַל־מֵי מְרִיבָה׃
9 who said of his father and mother, 'I regard them not';
he disowned his brothers, and ignored his children.
For they observed your word, and kept your covenant.
 הָאֹמֵר לְאָבִיו וּלְאִמֹּו לֹא רְאִיתִיו וְאֶת־אֶחָיו לֹא הִכִּיר וְאֶת־{כ= בָּנֹו} {ק= בָּנָיו} לֹא יָדָע כִּי שָׁמְרוּ אִמְרָתֶךָ וּבְרִיתְךָ יִנְצֹרוּ׃
10 They shall teach Jacob your ordinances,
and Israel your law;
they shall put incense before you,
and whole burnt offering upon your altar.
 יֹורוּ מִשְׁפָּטֶיךָ לְיַעֲקֹב וְתֹורָתְךָ לְיִשְׂרָאֵל יָשִׂימוּ קְטֹורָה בְּאַפֶּךָ וְכָלִיל עַל־מִזְבְּחֶךָ׃
11 Bless, O Yahweh, his substance,
and accept the work of his hands;
crush the loins of his adversaries,
of those that hate him,
that they rise not again."
 בָּרֵךְ יְהוָה חֵילֹו וּפֹעַל יָדָיו תִּרְצֶה מְחַץ מָתְנַיִם קָמָיו וּמְשַׂנְאָיו מִן־יְקוּמוּן׃ ס
12 Of Benjamin he said,

"The beloved of Yahweh, he dwells in safety by him;
he encompasses him all the day long,
and makes his dwelling between his shoulders."

 לְבִנְיָמִן אָמַר יְדִיד יְהֹוָה יִשְׁכֹּן לָבֶטַח עָלָיו חֹףֵף עָלָיו כָּל־הַיֹּום וּבֵין כְּתֵיפָיו שָׁכֵן׃ ס
13 And of Joseph he said,

"Blessed by Yahweh be his land,
with the choicest gifts of heaven above,
and of the deep that couches beneath,

 וּלְיֹוסֵף אָמַר מְבֹרֶכֶת יְהֹוָה אַרְצֹו מִמֶּגֶד שָׁמַיִם מִטָּל וּמִתְּהֹום רֹבֶצֶת תָּחַת׃
14 with the choicest fruits of the sun,
and the rich yield of the months,
 וּמִמֶּגֶד תְּבוּאֹת שָׁמֶשׁ וּמִמֶּגֶד גֶּרֶשׁ יְרָחִים׃
15 with the finest produce of the ancient mountains,
and the abundance of the everlasting hills,
 וּמֵרֹאשׁ הַרְרֵי־קֶדֶם וּמִמֶּגֶד גִּבְעֹות עֹולָם׃
16 with the best gifts of the earth and its fulness,
and the favour of him that dwelt in the bush.
Let these come upon the head of Joseph,
and upon the crown of the head of him
that is prince among his brothers.
 וּמִמֶּגֶד אֶרֶץ וּמְלֹאָהּ וּרְצֹון שֹׁכְנִי סְנֶה תָּבֹואתָה לְרֹאשׁ יֹוסֵף וּלְקָדְקֹד נְזִיר אֶחָיו׃
17 His firstling bull has majesty,
and his horns are the horns of a wild ox;
with them he shall push the peoples,
all of them, to the ends of the earth;
such are the ten thousands of Ephraim,
and such are the thousands of Manasseh."
 בְּכֹור שֹׁורֹו הָדָר לֹו וְקַרְנֵי רְאֵם קַרְנָיו בָּהֶם עַמִּים יְנַגַּח יַחְדָּו אַפְסֵי־אָרֶץ וְהֵם רִבְבֹות אֶפְרַיִם וְהֵם אַלְפֵי מְנַשֶּׁה׃ ס
18 And of Zebulun he said,

"Rejoice, Zebulun, in your going out;
and Issachar, in your tents.

 וְלִזְבוּלֻן אָמַר שְׂמַח זְבוּלֻן בְּצֵאתֶךָ וְיִשָּׂשכָר בְּאֹהָלֶיךָ׃
19 They shall call peoples to their mountain;
there they offer right sacrifices;
for they suck the affluence of the seas
and the hidden treasures of the sand."
 עַמִּים הַר־יִקְרָאוּ שָׁם יִזְבְּחוּ זִבְחֵי־צֶדֶק כִּי שֶׁפַע יַמִּים יִינָקוּ וּשְׂפוּנֵי טְמוּנֵי חֹול׃ ס
20 And of Gad he said,

"Blessed be he who enlarges Gad!
Gad couches like a lion,
he tears the arm, and the crown of the head.

 וּלְגָד אָמַר בָּרוּךְ מַרְחִיב גָּד כְּלָבִיא שָׁכֵן וְטָרַף זְרֹועַ אַף־קָדְקֹד׃
21 He chose the best of the land for himself,
for there a commander's portion was reserved;
and he came to the heads of the people,
with Israel he executed the commands
and just decrees of Yahweh."
 וַיַּרְא רֵאשִׁית לֹו כִּי־שָׁם חֶלְקַת מְחֹקֵק סָפוּן וַיֵּתֵא רָאשֵׁי עָם צִדְקַת יְהוָה עָשָׂה וּמִשְׁפָּטָיו עִם־יִשְׂרָאֵל׃ ס
22 And of Dan he said,

"Dan is a lion's whelp,
that leaps forth from Bashan."

 וּלְדָן אָמַר דָּן גּוּר אַרְיֵה יְזַנֵּק מִן־הַבָּשָׁן׃
23 And of Naphtali he said,

"O Naphtali, satisfied with favour,
and full of the blessing of Yahweh,
possess the lake and the south."

 וּלְנַפְתָּלִי אָמַר נַפְתָּלִי שְׂבַע רָצֹון וּמָלֵא בִּרְכַּת יְהוָה יָם וְדָרֹום יְרָשָׁה׃ ס
24 And of Asher he said,

"Blessed above sons be Asher;
let him be the favourite of his brothers,
and let him dip his foot in oil.

 וּלְאָשֵׁר אָמַר בָּרוּךְ מִבָּנִים אָשֵׁר יְהִי רְצוּי אֶחָיו וְטֹבֵל בַּשֶּׁמֶן רַגְלֹו׃
25 Your bars shall be iron and bronze;
and as your days, so shall your strength be.
 בַּרְזֶל וּנְחֹשֶׁת מִנְעָלֶיךָ וּכְיָמֶיךָ דָּבְאֶךָ׃
26 "There is none like God, O Jeshurun,
who rides through the heavens to your help,
and in his majesty through the skies.
 אֵין כָּאֵל יְשֻׁרוּן רֹכֵב שָׁמַיִם בְעֶזְרֶךָ וּבְגַאֲוָתֹו שְׁחָקִים׃
27 The eternal God is your dwelling place,
and underneath are the everlasting arms.
And he thrust out the enemy before you,
and said, Destroy.
 מְעֹנָה אֱלֹהֵי קֶדֶם וּמִתַּחַת זְרֹעֹת עֹולָם וַיְגָרֶשׁ מִפָּנֶיךָ אֹויֵב וַיֹּאמֶר הַשְׁמֵד׃
28 So Israel dwelt in safety,
the fountain of Jacob alone,
in a land of grain and wine;
yea, his heavens drop down dew.
 וַיִּשְׁכֹּן יִשְׂרָאֵל בֶּטַח בָּדָד עֵין יַעֲקֹב אֶל־אֶרֶץ דָּגָן וְתִירֹושׁ אַף־שָׁמָיו יַעַרְפוּ טָל׃
29 Happy are you, O Israel!
Who is like you, a people saved by Yahweh,
the shield of your help, and the sword of your triumph!
Your enemies shall come fawning to you;
and you shall tread upon their high places."
 אַשְׁרֶיךָ יִשְׂרָאֵל מִי כָמֹוךָ עַם נֹושַׁע בַּיהוָה מָגֵן עֶזְרֶךָ וַאֲשֶׁר־חֶרֶב גַּאֲוָתֶךָ וְיִכָּחֲשׁוּ אֹיְבֶיךָ לָךְ וְאַתָּה עַל־בָּמֹותֵימֹו תִדְרֹךְ׃ ס

Notes: This webpage enables you to select-a-version from the Bible versions held on the katapi bible database.
The katapi NEW STUDY BIBLE is a very light revision of the RSV. The changes are: (1) In places where 'the LORD', 'O LORD' occurs in the RSV, (it represents the tetragrammaton - YHWH - which is in the hebrew text), I have printed 'YHWH' in black. The later vowel sounds I have shown in the colour gray;
(2) I have removed the quotation marks and hyphens that were used in so many names in the RSV as an aid to correct pronunciation. This now brings it in line with all other English versions, and makes any word-search more accurate.
(3) I have changed all (I hope!) of the RSV archaic language sections to modern.

The katapi New Study Bible reference section displays links to parallel passages, and to direct quotations by New Testament authors to Old Testament passages. Quotations of OT passages by NT authors can in most cases be viewed within their context of the OT passage as a whole, with the quoted text displayed, against a subdued background.
