CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
For the seed shall be peace - o"Your seed shall be peace and a blessing, so that they will call it 'a seed of peace.'"

These shall possess these spiritual goods, which I promise now, under the image of temporal." As our Lord said, "He that overcometh shall inherit all things, and I will be his God, and he shall be My son" Revelation 21:7.

The Ninth Commandment
Now may God give you of the dew of heaven, And of the fatness of the earth, And an abundance of grain and new wine;

Of Joseph he said, "Blessed of the LORD be his land, With the choice things of heaven, with the dew, And from the deep lying beneath,
"So Israel dwells in security, The fountain of Jacob secluded, In a land of grain and new wine; His heavens also drop down dew.
The earth has yielded its produce; God, our God, blesses us.
Indeed, the LORD will give what is good, And our land will yield its produce.
Instead of your shame you will have a double portion, And instead of humiliation they will shout for joy over their portion. Therefore they will possess a double portion in their land, Everlasting joy will be theirs.
