Deuteronomy 33:8-11

8-11Levi:

"Let your Thummim and Urim

belong to your loyal saint;

The one you tested at Massah,

whom you fought with at the Waters of Meribah,

Who said of his father and mother,

'I no longer recognize them.'

He turned his back on his brothers

and neglected his children,

Because he was guarding your sayings

and watching over your Covenant.

Let him teach your rules to Jacob

and your Revelation to Israel,

Let him keep the incense rising to your nostrils

and the Whole-Burnt-Offerings on your Altar.

God bless his commitment,

stamp your seal of approval on what he does;

Disable the loins of those who defy him,

make sure we've heard the last from those who hate him."

12Benjamin:

"God's beloved;

God's permanent residence.

Encircled by God all day long,

within whom God is at home."
