Genesis 48

  1 H310 And it came to pass after H1697 these things, H559 [H8799] that one told H3130 Joseph, H1 Behold, thy father H2470 [H8802] is sick: H3947 [H8799] and he took H8147 with him his two H1121 sons, H4519 Manasseh H669 and Ephraim.
  2 H5046 [H8686] And one told H3290 Jacob, H559 [H8799] and said, H1121 Behold, thy son H3130 Joseph H935 [H8802] cometh H3478 to thee: and Israel H2388 [H8691] strengthened H3427 [H8799] himself, and sat H4296 upon the bed.
  3 H3290 And Jacob H559 [H8799] said H3130 to Joseph, H410 God H7706 Almighty H7200 [H8738] appeared H3870 to me at Luz H776 in the land H3667 of Canaan, H1288 [H8762] and blessed me,
  4 H559 [H8799] And said H6509 [H8688] to me, Behold, I will make thee fruitful, H7235 [H8689] and multiply H5414 [H8804] thee, and I will make H6951 of thee a congregation H5971 of people; H5414 [H8804] and will give H776 this land H2233 to thy seed H310 after thee H5769 for an everlasting H272 possession.
  5 H8147 And now thy two H1121 sons, H669 Ephraim H4519 and Manasseh, H3205 [H8737] who were born H776 to thee in the land H4714 of Egypt H5704 before H935 [H8800] I came H4714 to thee into Egypt, H7205 are mine; as Reuben H8095 and Simeon, they shall be mine.
  6 H4138 And thy issue, H3205 [H8689] which thou begettest H310 after H7121 [H8735] them, shall be thine, and shall be called H5921 after H8034 the name H251 of their brethren H5159 in their inheritance.
  7 H935 [H8800] And as for me, when I came H6307 from Padan, H7354 Rachel H4191 [H8804] died H776 by me in the land H3667 of Canaan H1870 in the way, H5750 when H3530 yet there was but a little H776 way H935 [H8800] to come H672 to Ephrath: H6912 [H8799] and I buried her H1870 there in the way H672 of Ephrath; H1035 the same is Bethlehem.
  8 H3478 And Israel H7200 [H8799] beheld H3130 Joseph's H1121 sons, H559 [H8799] and said, Who are these?
  9 H3130 And Joseph H559 [H8799] said H1 to his father, H1121 They are my sons, H430 whom God H5414 [H8804] hath given H559 [H8799] me in this place. And he said, H3947 [H8798] Bring them, H1288 [H8762] I pray thee, to me, and I will bless them.
  10 H5869 Now the eyes H3478 of Israel H3513 [H8804] were dim H2207 for age, H3201 [H8799] so that he could H7200 [H8800] not see. H5066 [H8686] And he brought them near H5401 [H8799] to him; and he kissed H2263 [H8762] them, and embraced them.
  11 H3478 And Israel H559 [H8799] said H3130 to Joseph, H6419 [H8765] I had not thought H7200 [H8800] to see H6440 thy face: H430 and, lo, God H7200 [H8689] hath shown H2233 me also thy seed.
  12 H3130 And Joseph H3318 [H8686] brought them out H5973 from between H1290 his knees, H7812 [H8691] and he bowed H639 himself with his nose H776 to the earth.
  13 H3130 And Joseph H3947 [H8799] took H8147 them both, H669 Ephraim H3225 in his right hand H3478 toward Israel's H8040 left hand, H4519 and Manasseh H8040 in his left hand H3478 toward Israel's H3225 right hand, H5066 [H8686] and brought them near to him.
  14 H3478 And Israel H7971 [H8799] stretched out H3225 his right hand, H7896 [H8799] and laid H669 it upon Ephraim's H7218 head, H6810 who was the younger, H8040 and his left hand H4519 upon Manasseh's H7218 head, H7919 0 guiding H3027 his hands H7919 [H8765] knowingly; H4519 for Manasseh H1060 was the firstborn.
  15 H1288 [H8762] And he blessed H3130 Joseph, H559 [H8799] and said, H430 God, H6440 at the face of H1 whom my fathers H85 Abraham H3327 and Isaac H1980 [H8694] did walk, H430 the God H7462 [H8802] who hath fed H5750 me all my life long H3117 to this day,
  16 H4397 The Messenger H1350 [H8802] who hath redeemed H7451 me from all evil, H1288 [H8762] bless H5288 the lads; H8034 and let my name H7121 [H8735] be named H8034 on them, and the name H1 of my fathers H85 Abraham H3327 and Isaac; H1711 [H8799] and let them grow H7230 into an abundance H7130 in the midst H776 of the earth.
  17 H3130 And when Joseph H7200 [H8799] saw H1 that his father H7896 [H8799] laid H3225 his right H3027 hand H7218 upon the head H669 of Ephraim, H3415 H5869 [H8799] it displeased H8551 [H8799] him: and he lifted H1 his father's H3027 hand, H5493 [H8687] to remove H669 it from Ephraim's H7218 head H4519 to Manasseh's H7218 head.
  18 H3130 And Joseph H559 [H8799] said H1 to his father, H1 Not so, my father: H1060 for this is the firstborn; H7760 [H8798] put H3225 thy right hand H7218 upon his head.
  19 H1 And his father H3985 [H8762] refused, H559 [H8799] and said, H3045 [H8804] I know H1121 it, my son, H3045 [H8804] I know H5971 it: he also shall become a people, H1431 [H8799] and he also shall be great: H199 but truly H6996 his younger H251 brother H1431 [H8799] shall be greater H2233 than he, and his seed H4393 shall become a multitude H1471 of nations.
  20 H1288 [H8762] And he blessed H3117 them that day, H559 [H8800] saying, H3478 In thee shall Israel H1288 [H8762] bless, H559 [H8800] saying, H430 God H7760 [H8799] make H669 thee as Ephraim H4519 and as Manasseh: H7760 [H8799] and he set H669 Ephraim H6440 at the face of H4519 Manasseh.
  21 H3478 And Israel H559 [H8799] said H3130 to Joseph, H4191 [H8801] Behold, I die: H430 but God H7725 [H8689] shall be with you, and bring you again H776 to the land H1 of your fathers.
  22 H5414 [H8804] Moreover I have given H259 to thee one H7926 portion H251 above thy brethren, H3947 [H8804] which I took H3027 out of the hand H567 of the Amorite H2719 with my sword H7198 and with my bow.
