"Judah, thou ‭art he‭ whom thy brethren shall praise: thy hand ‭shall be‭ in the neck of thine enemies; thy father’s children shall bow down before thee.‭ Judah ‭is‭ a lion’s whelp: from the prey, my son, thou art gone up: he stooped down, he couched as a lion, and as an old lion; who shall rouse him up?‭ ‭‭The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him ‭shall‭ the gathering of the people ‭be‭.‭"
Genesis 49:8-10, KJV

Blessed ‭is‭ he that blesseth thee, and cursed ‭is‭ he that curseth thee.‭"

Deuteronomy 33:20-22, KJV

"Moreover take thou up a lamentation for the princes of Israel,‭ And say, What ‭is‭ thy mother? A lioness: she lay down among lions, she nourished her whelps among young lions.‭ And she brought up one of her whelps: it became a young lion, and it learned to catch the prey; it devoured men.‭ The nations also heard of him; he was taken in their pit, and they brought him with chains unto the land of Egypt.‭ ‭‭Now when she saw that she had waited, ‭and‭ her hope was lost, then she took another of her whelps, ‭and‭ made him a young lion.‭ And he went up and down among the lions, he became a young lion, and learned to catch the prey, ‭and‭ devoured men.‭ And he knew their desolate palaces, and he laid waste their cities; and the land was desolate, and the fulness thereof, by the noise of his roaring.‭ Then the nations set against him on every side from the provinces, and spread their net over him: he was taken in their pit.‭ And they put him in ward in chains, and brought him to the king of Babylon: they brought him into holds, that his voice should no more be heard upon the mountains of Israel.‭"

"‭‭For I ‭will be‭ unto Ephraim as a lion, and as a young lion to the house of Judah: I, ‭even‭ I, will tear and go away; I will take away, and none shall rescue ‭him‭.‭ I will go ‭and‭ return to my place, till they acknowledge their offence, and seek my face: in their affliction they will seek me early.‭"
Hosea 5:14-15, KJV

"And my people are bent to backsliding from me: though they called them to the most High, none at all would exalt ‭him‭.‭ How shall I give thee up, Ephraim? ‭how‭ shall I deliver thee, Israel? how shall I make thee as Admah? ‭how‭ shall I set thee as Zeboim? mine heart is turned within me, my repentings are kindled together.‭ I will not execute the fierceness of mine anger, I will not return to destroy Ephraim: for I ‭am‭ God, and not man; the Holy One in the midst of thee: and I will not enter into the city.‭ ‭‭They shall walk after the LORD: he shall roar like a lion: when he shall roar, then the children shall tremble from the west.‭"
Hosea 11:7-10, KJV

"Yet I ‭am‭ the LORD thy God from the land of Egypt, and thou shalt know no god but me: for ‭there is‭ no saviour beside me.‭ I did know thee in the wilderness, in the land of great drought.‭ According to their pasture, so were they filled; they were filled, and their heart was exalted; therefore have they forgotten me.‭ Therefore I will be unto them as a lion: as a leopard by the way will I observe ‭them‭:‭ I will meet them as a bear ‭that is‭ bereaved ‭of her whelps‭, and will rend the caul of their heart, and there will I devour them like a lion: the wild beast shall tear them.‭ O Israel, thou hast destroyed thyself; but in me ‭is‭ thine help.‭"
Hosea 13:4-9, KJV
