Genesis 49:13-18 New International Version

13  "Zebulun will live by the seashore and become a haven for ships; his border will extend toward Sidon. 14  "Issachar is a rawboned[1] donkey lying down among the sheep pens.[2] 15  When he sees how good is his resting place and how pleasant is his land, he will bend his shoulder to the burden and submit to forced labor. 16  "Dan[3] will provide justice for his people as one of the tribes of Israel. 17  Dan will be a snake by the roadside, a viper along the path, that bites the horse's heels so that its rider tumbles backward. 18  "I look for your deliverance, Lord.
