Leah Reuben! my first-born thou, My power, and beginning of my strength,

The abundance of exaltation, And the abundance of strength;
Unstable as water, thou art not abundant;
For thou hast gone up thy father's bed;
Then thou hast polluted: My couch he went up!

31 And Jehovah seeth that Leah [is] the hated one, and He openeth her womb, and Rachel [is] barren;

32 and Leah conceiveth, and beareth a son, and calleth his name Reuben, for she said, `Because Jehovah hath looked on mine affliction; because now doth my husband love me.'

33 And she conceiveth again, and beareth a son, and saith, `Because Jehovah hath heard that I [am] the hated one, He also giveth to me even this [one];' and she calleth his name Simeon.

34 And she conceiveth again, and beareth a son, and saith, `Now [is] the time, my husband is joined unto me, because I have born to him three sons,' therefore hath [one] called his name Levi.

35 And she conceiveth again, and beareth a son, and saith this time, `I praise Jehovah;' therefore hath she called his name Judah; and she ceaseth from bearing.

Simeon and Levi [are] brethren! Instruments of violence -- their espousals!

Into their secret, come not, O my soul!
Unto their assembly be not united, O mine honour;
For in their anger they slew a man, And in their self-will eradicated a prince.
Cursed [is] their anger, for [it is] fierce, And their wrath, for [it is] sharp;
I divide them in Jacob, And I scatter them in Israel.

Judah! thou -- thy brethren praise thee!

Thy hand [is] on the neck of thine enemies,
Sons of thy father bow themselves to thee.
A lion's whelp [is] Judah, For prey, my son, thou hast gone up;
He hath bent, he hath crouched as a lion, And as a lioness; who causeth him to arise?
The sceptre turneth not aside from Judah, And a lawgiver from between his feet,
Till his Seed come; And his [is] the obedience of peoples.
Binding to the vine his ass, And to the choice vine the colt of his ass,
He hath washed in wine his clothing, And in the blood of grapes his covering;
Red [are] eyes with wine, And white [are] teeth with milk!

Leah Issacher [is] a strong ass, Crouching between the two folds;

And he seeth rest that [it is] good, And the land that [it is] pleasant,
And he inclineth his shoulder to bear, And is to tribute a servant.

17 And God hearkeneth unto Leah, and she conceiveth, and beareth to Jacob a son, a fifth,

18 and Leah saith, `God hath given my hire, because I have given my maid-servant to my husband;' and she calleth his name Issachar.

19 And conceive again doth Leah, and she beareth a sixth son to Jacob,

20 and Leah saith, `God hath endowed me -- a good dowry; this time doth my husband dwell with me, for I have borne to him six sons;' and she calleth his name Zebulun;

21 and afterwards hath she born a daughter, and calleth her name Dinah.

Zebulun at a haven of the seas doth dwell, And he [is] for a haven of ships;

And his side [is] unto Zidon.

Zilpah Gad! a troop assaulteth him, But he assaulteth last.

9 And Leah seeth that she hath ceased from bearing, and she taketh Zilpah her maid-servant, and giveth her to Jacob for a wife;

10 and Zilpah, Leah's maid-servant, beareth to Jacob a son,

11 and Leah saith, `A troop is coming;' and she calleth his name Gad.

12 And Zilpah, Leah's maid-servant, beareth a second son to Jacob,

13 and Leah saith, `Because of my happiness, for daughters have pronounced me happy;' and she calleth his name Asher.

14 And Reuben goeth in the days of wheat-harvest, and findeth love-apples in the field, and bringeth them in unto Leah, his mother, and Rachel saith unto Leah, `Give to me, I pray thee, of the love-apples of thy son.'

15 And she saith to her, `Is thy taking my husband a little thing, that thou hast taken also the love-apples of my son?' and Rachel saith, `Therefore doth he lie with thee to-night, for thy son's love-apples.'

16 And Jacob cometh in from the field at evening; and Leah goeth to meet him, and saith, `Unto me dost thou come in, for hiring I have hired thee with my son's love-apples;' and he lieth with her during that night.

Out of Asher his bread [is] fat; And he giveth dainties of a king.
Rachel Joseph [is] a fruitful son; A fruitful son by a fountain, Daughters step over the wall;

And embitter him -- yea, they have striven, Yea, hate him do archers;
And his bow abideth in strength, And strengthened are the arms of his hands By the hands of the Mighty One of Jacob,
Whence is a shepherd, a son of Israel.
By the God of thy father who helpeth thee, And the Mighty One who blesseth thee,
Blessings of the heavens from above, Blessings of the deep lying under, Blessings of breasts and womb; --
Thy father's blessings have been mighty Above the blessings of my progenitors,
Unto the limit of the heights age-during They are for the head of Joseph,
And for the crown of the one Separate [from] his brethren.

22 And God remembereth Rachel, and God hearkeneth unto her, and openeth her womb,

23 and she conceiveth and beareth a son, and saith, `God hath gathered up my reproach;'

24 and she calleth his name Joseph, saying, `Jehovah is adding to me another son.'

Benjamin! a wolf teareth; In the morning he eateth prey, And at evening he apportioneth spoil.'
Bilhah Dan doth judge his people, As one of the tribes of Israel;

Dan is a serpent by the way, An adder by the path,
Which is biting the horse's heels, And its rider falleth backward.
For Thy salvation I have waited, Jehovah!


1And Rachel seeth that she hath not borne to Jacob, and Rachel is envious of her sister, and saith unto Jacob, `Give me sons, and if there is none -- I die.'

2 And Jacob's anger burneth against Rachel, and he saith, `Am I in stead of God who hath withheld from thee the fruit of the womb?'

3 And she saith, `Lo, my handmaid Bilhah, go in unto her, and she doth bear on my knees, and I am built up, even I, from her;'

4 and she giveth to him Bilhah her maid-servant for a wife, and Jacob goeth in unto her;

5 and Bilhah conceiveth, and beareth to Jacob a son,

6 and Rachel saith, `God hath decided for me, and also hath hearkened to my voice, and giveth to me a son;' therefore hath she called his name Dan.

7 And Bilhah, Rachel's maid-servant, conceiveth again, and beareth a second son to Jacob,

8 and Rachel saith, `With wrestlings of God I have wrestled with my sister, yea, I have prevailed;' and she calleth his name Napthali.

Naphtali [is] a hind sent away, Who is giving beauteous young ones.
