Deuteronomy 33:16

Context

33:16 with the harvest of the earth and its fullness

and the pleasure of him who resided in the burning bush. 1 

May blessing rest on Joseph’s head,

and on the top of the head of the one set apart 2  from his brothers.

1 tn The expression “him who resided in the bush” is frequently understood as a reference to the appearance of the Lord to Moses at Sinai from a burning bush (so NIV, NCV, TEV, CEV, NLT; cf. Exod 2:2-6; 3:2, 4). To make this reference clear the word “burning” is supplied in the translation.

2 sn This apparently refers to Joseph’s special status among his brothers as a result of his being chosen by God to save the family from the famine and to lead Egypt.
