יהודה יעלה. שבט יהודה יעלה תחלה לכבוש את גורלו: Let Yehudah go up. Let the tribe of Yehudah go up first2The tribesmen of Yehudah were first in many instances; they entered the water first at the splitting of the sea, their banner was the first to proceed when the Yisroelites journeyed in the wilderness, they went up first in the Book of Shoftim. Indeed, at the coming redemption, their tribesman Dovid will reign as the first of his countrymen. (Yalkut, 37:a. See Yalkut to Beshalach, 234) to conquer their alloted territory.
