Deuteronomy 33:16-18 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

16 with the choice gifts of the land
and everything in it;
and with the favor of Him
who appeared[a] in the burning bush.
May these rest on the head of Joseph,
on the crown of the prince of his brothers.
17 His firstborn bull has[b] splendor,
and horns like[c] those of a wild ox;
he gores all the peoples with them
to the ends of the earth.
Such are the ten thousands of Ephraim,
and such are the thousands of Manasseh.

18 He said about Zebulun:

Rejoice, Zebulun, in your journeys,
and Issachar, 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.
