Jacob’s prophecy, “Benjamin shall ravin” “as a wolf” (Gen. 49:27), represents the warlike character of” that tribe (see Judg. 19-21). Isaiah represents the peace of “Messiah’s kingdom by the words, “The wolf also shall dwell with” “the lamb” (Isa. 11:6). The habits of the wolf are described in” Jer. 5:6; Hab. 1:8; Zeph. 3:3; Ezek. 22:27; Matt. 7:15; 10:16; “Acts 20:29. Wolves are still sometimes found in Palestine, and” “are the dread of shepherds, as of old.”
