“as a lion.” The lion eventually became the symbol of the kingdom of Judah.

Gen 49:11

“will wash.” The Hebrew is an example of the prophetic perfect idiom, speaking of a future event as if it was past. That “Judah” would wash his garments in “the blood of grapes” is a picture of abundance, but also almost certainly of the coming Messiah’s conquest of the earth. The Battle of Armageddon is referred to as the “winepress” because of all the blood that is spilled in that battle. There will be millions of people killed at that time, and their blood will splash onto Christ’s garments (Isa. 63:3; cp. Rev. 19:13). The Battle of Armageddon is also referred to as “the winepress” in Jeremiah 63:2-3; Joel 3:13 and Revelation 14:19-20; 19:15 (see commentary on Rev. 19:15).

Gen 49:12

“his eyes—darker than wine.” The meaning of this verse is disputed. Eyes darker than wine and teeth whiter than milk describe ideal beauty in the ancient biblical culture. On the other hand, “eyes dark with wine and teeth white with milk” can indicate abundance—that Judah would have an abundance of good things. The REV follows most modern interpreters.

“campfires.” The meaning of the Hebrew word is debated. For “campfires,” see Word Biblical Commentary for Judges 5:16, the only other place this Hebrew word is used.
