Orietur stella ex Jacob,
et exsurget homo de Israel,
et confringet omnes duces alienigenarum,
et erit omnis terra possessio ejus,
et adorabunt eum omnes reges terrae,
omnes gentes servient ei.

A star shall come out of Jacob
and a man shall arise out of Israel;
and he shall destroy all the leaders of the enemies,
and the whole earth shall be his possession;
and all the kings of the earth shall adore him;
all nations shall serve him.
