8 Judah, thou art he whom thy brethren shall praise: thy hand shall be in the neck of thine enemies; thy father's children shall bow down before thee.
8 "Judah, your brothers shall praise you; your hand shall be on the neck of your enemies; your father's sons shall bow down before you.
8 You, Judah, your brothers will praise you: Your fingers on your enemies' throat, while your brothers honor you.
8 "Judah, you are he whom your brothers shall praise; Your hand shall be on the neck of your enemies; Your father's children shall bow down before you.
8 "Judah, your brothers will praise you. You will grasp your enemies by the neck. All your relatives will bow before you.
