Blessings of Zebulun, Issachar, Gad, Dan, Naftali and Asher

Sep 27, 2015

Next, Moses blesses Zebulun and Issachar together, the former in their travels and the latter in their tents. He praises Gad for ‘executing God’s righteousness’, recognizing God for enlarging the tribe. He compares Dan to a leaping lion. He offers Naftali prosperity on the sea and in the south. He blesses Asher with oil and valuable metals.

 

After turning to each of the tribes individually, Moses offers his final words to the nation as a whole. Praising God, he notes that the Israelites should rejoice in being His chosen people, and appreciate that they have God to fight for them.
