ESV Verse of the Day
Verse of the Day
“9 Judah is a lion’s cub; from the prey, my son, you have gone up. He stooped down; he crouched as a lion and as a lioness; who dares rouse him? 10 The scepter shall not depart from Judah, nor the ruler’s staff from between his feet, until tribute comes to him; and to him shall be the obedience of the peoples.”
Read Genesis 49
*Here Judah is the sceptre or “ruler”, note too verse 24, with verse 28, noting also Gen. 49: 1… And of these show that the prophecy (verse 1) and the “blessing” (verse 28) extends to, and embraces the days of Messiah, and His first and second advents. Read from verses 1 thru 28… “the twelve tribes of Israel”!
