  And He came from dthe IImidst of ten thousand holy ones;
  eAt His right hand there was IIIflashing lightning for them.
  3aIndeed, He loves Ithe people;
  bAll IIYour holy ones are in Your hand,
  cAnd they IIIfollowed in Your steps;
  [Everyone] receives of Your words.
  4aMoses charged us with a law,
  bA possession for the assembly of Jacob.
  5aAnd He was king in Jeshurun,
  When the heads of the people were gathered,
  The tribes of Israel together.

The majesty of God.

1 ¶ And this [is] the blessing, wherewith Moses the man of God blessed the children of Israel before his death. 2 And he said, The LORD came from Sinai, and rose up from Seir unto them; he shined forth from mount Paran, and he came with ten thousands of saints: from his right hand [went] a fiery law for them. 3 Yea, he loved the people; all his saints [are] in thy hand: and they sat down at thy feet; [every one] shall receive of thy words. 4 Moses commanded us a law, [even] the inheritance of the congregation of Jacob. 5 And he was king in Jeshurun, when the heads of the people [and] the tribes of Israel were gathered together.
