The acrostic's introduction: (Genesis 49:1-3)
(Last letter of every consecutive word.)
"The excess (of speech) is valid. (Note:
The letter "Tav" is overlapped.) They are flawless! But due to its redundancy, the excess was scrambled (into the rest of
the text) by Me, the One excelling (in honor and power)"---(sub-acrostic) "For I will show myself flawless!" (Click here for this riddle explained.)
Body of acrostic begins:
First letter of every consecutive word
from Reuben to Benjamin: (Genesis 49:3-28)
(Reuben, Simeon, and Levi) (Genesis 49:3-6)
"Jesus, You shall fly! With you will be a people!" (letter-space)
(Note parallel text Deut. 33:2, 26)
"O my brother Esau (i.e., Jacob's vengeful brother), surely wrath is
coming --- A Jackal is coming --- But the light of the oppressor will be
or dissolved like a moth!"
(Or may read: "Oh my brother Esau (Edom), surely in heat (anger) you
came --- you prophesied, "A star! Behold! --- and the constellation of the Great bear!" (Or
perhaps, "Leo," See Num 24.)
(Judah) (Genesis 49:8-12)
(Words in light-purple
are implied. Click here
for literal reading.)
"O enemy, a Great Leader is
coming --- a mighty Ram, you arrogant ones! On that day you will be cut off as unclean. But who are they that belong to me? Desolate, Jesus will shepherd you with
his scepter!" (Jesus is Shiloh!)
Sub-acrostic: "I desire the territory of my Prince!"
Sub-sub-acrostic: "I will draw near!" "I will take (it) by force!"
continues to read:
"I will drink deeply and stutter like a drunk! And they, too, will drink the blood of the grapes. For He comes to bind them
to the vine and to trample down the grapes!"
(Zebulun and Issachar) (Genesis 49:13-15)
"To be burdened down with a load like a donkey is my constellation (destiny)! (Today,
this constellation is 'Cancer', the crab).
He became exhausted, as well as the trees used for the great festival at the feast of Tabernacles. Alas, O' impoverished one!"
"And always be ready for Shiloh
(to return)!" (Compare next verse,
vs.17 with vs.10 in Hebrew. Note how the acrostic links Shiloh with Yeshua. See Dan next
for alternative reading of sentence about Shiloh.)
(Dan) means, "judging." (Genesis 49:16-17)
(Note: About 100,000 black-skinned Danites returned from a 2700-year exile from Ethiopia in 1985 and 1991. The reference to dark skin in association with blindness is not a slur, but is just a simile, as
in Jer. 13:23, "Can an Ethiopian change his skin? and a leopard his spots? Then neither can you change your evil ways." For "Gog" [Russia] see Ezek. 38-39.)
"Thus, Shiloh smote Israel. As my witness, (the skin of) the Ethiopians of Dan is proof of
blindness, that He allowed
him to be trampled down like grapes.
I will plague Gog! (Or perhaps,
"I will have Gog's blood licked up like a dog!") "'The valley of Gog'--- (acrostic
briefly reverses) is 'The Valley of the Burning of Russia'."
(Sub-acrostic for Judah to Dan)
"I desire the territory of my
Prince. I desire you, even my people! For the Ruler, the One speaking in riddles, is angry,
and for good reason --- a Lamb!"
"I will draw near (judicially) to darken Cush, (that is, Ethiopia)!"
(Gad, Asher, and Naphtali) (Genesis 49:18-21)
"Therefore, Shiloh bears the burden, (that is, the Ruler, the One speaking riddles). Levi (the priest) selects a Lamb for the fire! I will return!"
Sub-acrostic: "For it concerns a burden!" (or, "...a prophecy!")
See 'bull/ox' of Deut. 33:17 and Genesis 27:40.) (This part of acrostic intentionally overlaps two letters ---Aleph and Tav--- i.e., "Alpha and Omega." It reads slightly different without overlap.)

that nail a horn as you deceitfully give your brother a hug!
You are like a menacing wild bull!
-- Another horn! (nail) --
Yet, as you return to attack, there you will be cut to pieces.
When returning, I will low like a bull against her for a time, and she will low too!
(O cow), "Hang the bull up raw!" (or, "Saddle him please!")
Sub-acrostic: "Enquire along with them! He returns, coming against a bull-calf (and against the calf's father!)" Sub-sub acrostic:
"Against (the bull's) son about whom they enquired."
(Note about "Gog" [Ezekiel 38].
The following about "Gog," leads into the special end-of-word acrostic that follows.)
(The text briefly
reads backward at the very place where actual text reads, "the horses' rider falls backward..." Genesis 49:17.)
I will plague---Gog! (or, "I will lick up Gog['s blood like a dog]).
"'"The valley of Gog"---(reverses) is "The Valley of the Burning of

Last letter of every consecutive word
from Gad to Benjamin: (Genesis 49:17-28)
"There is indeed a shout like one treading grapes, for I myself have conquered him! And like the Lord, behold, Israel (lit. "he")
will shout joyfully with tambourine!" ---(one-letter break)---
"You mourned! (Or, "You rejoiced!") Did they shoot nails at a Son? Were the nails intended for me when they were shot at
him like arrows? Was
He wailed for by you, O clan of mine? He was hammered to death! Gold will be beaten down with hammer until pure! (Or,
'A clan will be hammered to pieces.') You are circumcised to the point of death! You are complete in death! Strength is spent! At the twilight of the age you are finished (or, perfected)!"
(The phrase, "O Clan, gold will be beaten down with hammer until pure/finished!" ... contains a striking play on sounds. Two letters are overlapped, but reads much the same without overlap. See Daniel 12.)
"For the bull grew into an swift bear charging toward her." (Or, "For the bull grew into an swift bear that caused them to wail (howl)." Or, "For the
bull prospered into a bear of burnished metal (that) rips in pieces." Or, "For the bull grew into an accursed bear." Or, economically speaking: "For the prosperous bull (market)
became a weak bear (market) that makes them wail," [See Genesis 41:17-21].)
Sub-acrostic: "They became darkened. Indeed, you were changed into a wasteland. You struck him with a
nail, the One they killed --- when you wandered (from me), falling away quickly!"
(Benjamin) (and conclusion) (Genesis 49:27-28)
"My plunder is with me, (letter-space) and His salvation bites like fire!"
Sub-acrostic: "When I come!"
(Compare the "Benjamin" code with
the actual text of Gen. 49:27 that reads: "Benjamin is a ravenous wolf.
In the morning he devours his prey. In the evening he divides the
stretching from Judah to Benjamin: (Genesis 49:8-27)
"I desire the territory of my
Prince. I desire you, even my people! For the Ruler (the One speaking in riddles) is angry with good
reason --- a Lamb! Moreover, ask about the meaning of the prophecy
'burden') that concerns them. He returns, coming against a bull-calf (and against the calf's
father!) --- when I come!"
Sub-sub-acrostic: (Genesis 49:8-27)
"I will draw near to darken Cush (Ethiopia)! And (I will draw near) in a Son as He returns on darkening clouds!"
("Cush," the son of Ham [meaning, "burnt"] and
father of Nimrod, who built Babylon, was the brother of Egypt, Put [Libya], and Canaan, Genesis 10:6-12. Cush here appears to represent all nations in rebellion. It has nothing to do with racism anymore than this verse: "Can the Ethiopian [Cushite] change his skin or the
leopard his spots? Neither can you do good who are accustomed to doing evil. I will scatter you..." Jer. 13:23. Skin color is simply a
simile --- nothing more!)
Note: Also see "The record
and their prophecy," as explained by two picture bible codes and this acrostic!
(Also see, "Comet
Lion Bible Code
In the above image,
the tail of the comet reads: "The scepter/comet of man is among
them!" The star reads, "His star" 4x, and the Lion, in part,
reads, "' "I AM" (is) the Lion of God!", "...of Judah" (5x). The head
reads, "The scepter". The legs read, from right to left,
"Judah, His Son, Levi, Judah", etc...
