This is my blessing for the multitudes of Ephraim
and the thousands of Manasseh.”

may you be secure all your days.”

Unchecked Copy BoxDeu 33:26 - “There is no one like the God of Israel.[fn]
He rides across the heavens to help you,
across the skies in majestic splendor.

Unchecked Copy BoxDeu 33:27 - The eternal God is your refuge,
and his everlasting arms are under you.
He drives out the enemy before you;
he cries out, ‘Destroy them!’

Unchecked Copy BoxDeu 33:28 - So Israel will live in safety,
prosperous Jacob in security,
in a land of grain and new wine,
while the heavens drop down dew.

Your enemies will cringe before you,
and you will stomp on their backs!”
