Deuteronomy 33:12 AMP
Of Benjamin he said, “May the beloved of the Lord dwell in safety by Him; He shields and covers him all the day long,
And he dwells between His shoulders.”

From Biblegateway Dt 33:12

* The temple in Jerusalem was located almost between the ridges of the territory of Benjamin, suggesting “between his shoulders” (see also Josh 15:8). Moses saw it as a symbol of the Lord’s presence covering Benjamin continually.

From Strange Scriptures That Perplex the Western Mind
By Barbara M. Bowen

This scripture refers to the Bible Land’s hammock or cradle, … It is a hammock … carried on the mother’s shoulders, with cords passing across her forehead. … How often we have seen a small hammock on the shoulders of a young mother, with a tiny face peeking out, or more often with a sleeping baby and a little foot or a small hand showing at the side of the hammock. When the mother carries the child, she will draw a part of her large white veil over the hammock as a protection against the hot sun, either partly or completely covering it. This is the common picture referred to in Deut. 33:12.

Psalm 4:8 AMPC … In peace I will both lie down and sleep, for You, Lord, alone make me dwell in safety and confident trust.
