He gives beautiful words

Zebulun shall dwell at the seashore; and he shall be a haven for ships, and his flank shall be toward Sidon. (vs 13) For Thy salvation I wait, Oh Lord. (vs 18)

Naphtali is a doe let loose, he gives beautiful words.  (vs 21)

Joseph is a fruitful bough [son], a fruitful bough by a spring; its branches [daughters] run over a wall. The archers bitterly attacked him, and shot at him and harassed him; but his bow remained firm [in an unyielding position], and his arms were agile. From the hands of the Mighty One of Jacob (from there is the Shepherd, the Stone of Israel), from the God of your Father who helps you, and by the Almighty who blesses you with blessings of heaven above, blessings of the deep that lies beneath, blessings of the breasts and of the womb. The blessings of your father have surpassed the blessings of my ancestors up to the utmost bound [limit or desire] of the everlasting hills; may they be on the head of Joseph, and on the crown of the head of the one distinguished among his brothers. (vs 22-16)

This is what their father said to them when he blessed them. He blessed them, every one with the blessing appropriate to him. (vs 28)
