because of the God of your father, who will help you, 1 because of the sovereign God, 2 who will bless you 3 with blessings from the sky above, blessings from the deep that lies below, and blessings of the breasts and womb. 4

1 tn Heb “and he will help you.”
2 tn Heb “Shaddai.” See the note on the title “sovereign God” in Gen 17:1. The preposition אֵת (’et) in the Hebrew text should probably be emended to אֵל (’el, “God”).
3 tn Heb “and he will bless you.”
4 sn Jacob envisions God imparting both agricultural (blessings from the sky above, blessings from the deep that lies below) and human fertility (blessings of the breasts and womb) to Joseph and his family.
