Benjamin Tribe


About Benjamin Moses said: "The beloved of the Lord shall dwell in safety by him, who shelters him all the day long; and he shall dwell between his shoulders". (Deuteronomy 33:12)

Benjamin was the twelfth and youngest son of Jacob. His mother was Rachel, Jacob's wife. Benjamin was born during the journey that Jacob and his family took from Padan Aram to Canaan. Originally named Ben-oni, or "son of my affliction" by his mother as she lay dying in labor, his name was later changed to Benjamin, meaning "son of my right hand" (Genesis 48:14)

Next to Joseph, he was Jacob's favorite son. Benjamin was born after Joseph was sold into slavery. Jacob later blessed Benjamin while on his deathbed.

Benjamin's banner (flag) was a mixture of all colors. His emblem was a ravening wolf. His gem was jasper. The large circle in the center of the window symbolizes unity. Saul of the tribe of Benjamin, the first king of eh entire Israel, united the separate tribes (the smaller circles) into one kingdom. The animal at the bottom is of the ravening wolf devouring his prey.


Benjamin is a ravening wolf; in the morning he shall devour the prey, and at night he shall divide the spoil." (Genesis 49:27)
