Genesis 49:24-26 Tree of Life Version (TLV)

24 Yet his bow was always filled,
    and his arms quick-moving—
    by the hands of the Mighty One of Jacob.
From there a Shepherd,
    the Stone of Israel,[a]
25 from the God of your father
    who helps you,
    and Shaddai who blesses you,
    with blessings of heavens above,
    blessings of the deep that lies below,
    blessings of breasts and womb.
26 The blessings of your father surpassed
        the blessings of the ancient mountains,
        the desire of the everlasting hills.
    May they be upon Joseph’s head,
        upon the crown of the one set apart from his brothers.

Genesis 49:24-26 New International Version (NIV)

24 But his bow remained steady,
    his strong arms stayed[a] limber,
because of the hand of the Mighty One of Jacob,
    because of the Shepherd, the Rock of Israel,
25 because of your father’s God, who helps you,
    because of the Almighty,[b] who blesses you
with blessings of the skies above,
    blessings of the deep springs below,
    blessings of the breast and womb.
26 Your father’s blessings are greater
    than the blessings of the ancient mountains,
    than[c] the bounty of the age-old hills.
Let all these rest on the head of Joseph,
    on the brow of the prince among[d] his brothers.
