Genesis 49:12

Context
NETBible

His eyes will be dark from wine, and his teeth white from milk. 1 

XREF

Pr 23:29

NET © Notes

tn Some translate these as comparatives, “darker than wine…whiter than milk,” and so a reference to his appearance (so NEB, NIV, NRSV). But if it is in the age of abundance, symbolized by wine and milk, then the dark (i.e., red or perhaps dull) eyes would be from drinking wine, and the white teeth from drinking milk.
