Deuteronomy 33:22-25 (JDV)

Deuteronomy 33:22 He said about Dan: Dan is a young lion, leaping out of Bashan.
Deuteronomy 33:23 He said about Naphtali: Naphtali, enjoying approval, full of Yahveh’s empowerment, take possession of it west and the south.
Deuteronomy 33:24 He said about Asher: May Asher be the most empowered of the sons; may he be the most favored among his brothers and dip his foot in olive oil.
Deuteronomy 33:25 May the bolts of your gate be iron and bronze, and your strength last as long as you live.

Oil was used as a means of cleansing and protecting the head and feet. But it was used sparingly. If anyone had enough oil that they dared to dip their feet into it, it would have been considered either a huge waste, or a sign of extreme wealth. Moses’ prediction that Asher would dip his foot in olive oil suggested a future of untold wealth.

God wants to bless those who are in covenant with him, and his resources are unlimited. But not everyone that he blesses will end up with an oil foot bath. His grace is sufficient.

Lord, we trust you and thank you for the blessing you have appointed for us.

    How RICH we are! I just checked our cabinet…. We currently have 7 bottles of pure virgin olive oil, imported from such places as Portugal, Spain, Italy, Tunisia and Argentina. I could easily afford to fill a basin with it and soak my feet any time I want to. Yet I am not even classified as “average income level” (based on per capita GDP) by American standards….
