Deuteronomy 33:16-18 Common English Bible (CEB)

16         with the gifts of the earth and all that fills it,
    and the favor of the one who lives on Sinai.[a]
I pray that all these rest on Joseph’s head,
    on the crown of that prince among brothers.
17 A firstborn bull[b]—that’s how majestic he is!
    A wild ox’s horns—those are his horns!
        With them he gores all peoples
        completely, to the far ends of the earth!
His horns[c] are Ephraim’s tens of thousands.
    His horns are Manasseh’s thousands.”
18 Then he told Zebulun:
“Zebulun: celebrate when you are out and about;
    Issachar: celebrate when you are at home in your tents!

Deuteronomy 33:16-18 New International Version (NIV)

16 with the best gifts of the earth and its fullness
    and the favor of him who dwelt in the burning bush.
Let all these rest on the head of Joseph,
    on the brow of the prince among[a] his brothers.
17 In majesty he is like a firstborn bull;
    his horns are the horns of a wild ox.
With them he will gore the nations,
    even those at the ends of the earth.
Such are the ten thousands of Ephraim;
    such are the thousands of Manasseh.

18 About Zebulun he said:

“Rejoice, Zebulun, in your going out,
    and you, Issachar, in your tents.
