8 “Judah, hyour brothers shall praise you;
iyour hand shall be on the neck of your enemies;
jyour father’s sons shall bow down before you.
9 Judah is ka lion’s cub;
from the prey, my son, you have gone up.
lHe stooped down; he crouched as a lion
and as a lioness; who dares rouse him?
10 The mscepter shall not depart from Judah,
nor the ruler’s staff nfrom between his feet,
until tribute comes to him;1
and to him shall be the obedience of the peoples.
