And it cameH1961 to pass afterH310 theseH428 things,H1697 that one toldH559 Joseph,H3130 Behold,H2009 your fatherH1 is sick:H2470 and he tookH3947 with him his twoH8147 sons,H1121 ManassehH4519 and Ephraim.H669
And one toldH5046 Jacob,H3290 and said,H559 Behold,H2009 your sonH1121 JosephH3130 comesH935 to you: and IsraelH3478 strengthenedH2388 himself, and satH3427 on the bed.H4296
And JacobH3290 saidH559 to Joseph,H3130 GodH410 AlmightyH7706 appearedH7200 to me at LuzH3870 in the landH776 of Canaan,H3667 and blessedH1288 me,
And saidH559 to me, Behold,H2005 I will make you fruitful,H6509 and multiplyH7235 you, and I will makeH5414 of you a multitudeH6951 of people;H5971 and will giveH5414 thisH2063 landH776 to your seedH2233 afterH310 you for an everlastingH5769 possession.H272
And nowH6258 your twoH8147 sons,H1121 EphraimH669 and Manasseh,H4519 which were bornH3205 to you in the landH776 of EgyptH4714 beforeH5704 I cameH935 to you into Egypt,H4714 are mine; as ReubenH7205 and Simeon,H8095 they shall be mine.
And your issue,H4138 whichH834 you begetH3205 afterH310 them, shall be yours, and shall be calledH7121 afterH5921 the nameH8034 of their brothersH251 in their inheritance.H5159
And as for me, when I cameH935 from Padan,H6307 RachelH7354 diedH4191 by me in the landH776 of CanaanH3667 in the way,H1870 whenH5750 yetH5750 there was but a littleH3530 wayH776 to comeH935 to Ephrath:H672 and I buriedH6912 her thereH8033 in the wayH1870 of Ephrath;H672 the sameH1931 is Bethlehem.H1035
And IsraelH3478 beheldH7200 Joseph'sH3130 sons,H1121 and said,H559 WhoH4310 are these?H428
And JosephH3130 saidH559 to his father,H1 They are my sons,H1121 whomH834 GodH430 has givenH5414 me in thisH2088 place. And he said,H559 BringH3947 them, I prayH4994 you, to me, and I will blessH1288 them.
Now the eyesH5869 of IsraelH3478 were dimH3513 for age,H2207 so that he couldH3201 not see.H7200 And he broughtH5066 them nearH5066 to him; and he kissedH5401 them, and embracedH2263 them.
And IsraelH3478 saidH559 to Joseph,H3130 I had not thoughtH6419 to seeH7200 your face:H6440 and, see,H2009 GodH430 has showedH7200 me alsoH1571 your seed.H2233
And JosephH3130 broughtH3318 them out from betweenH5973 his knees,H1290 and he bowedH7812 himself with his faceH639 to the earth.H776
And JosephH3130 tookH3947 them both,H8147 EphraimH669 in his rightH3225 handH3225 toward Israel'sH3478 leftH8040 hand,H8040 and ManassehH4519 in his leftH8040 handH8040 toward Israel'sH3478 rightH3225 hand,H3225 and broughtH5066 them nearH5066 to him.
And IsraelH3478 stretchedH7971 out his rightH3225 hand,H3225 and laidH7896 it on Ephraim'sH669 head,H7218 whoH1931 was the younger,H6810 and his leftH8040 handH8040 on Manasseh'sH4519 head,H7218 guiding his handsH3027 wittingly;H7919 for ManassehH4519 was the firstborn.H1060
And he blessedH1288 Joseph,H3130 and said,H559 God,H430 beforeH6440 whomH834 my fathersH1 AbrahamH85 and IsaacH3327 did walk,H1980 the GodH430 which fedH7462 me all my life longH5750 to thisH2088 day,H3117
The AngelH4397 which redeemedH1350 me from allH3605 evil,H7451 blessH1288 the lads;H5288 and let my nameH8034 be namedH7121 on them, and the nameH8034 of my fathersH1 AbrahamH85 and Isaac;H3327 and let them growH1711 into a multitudeH7230 in the middleH7130 of the earth.H776
And when JosephH3130 sawH7200 that his fatherH1 laidH7896 his rightH3225 handH3027 on the headH7218 of Ephraim,H669 it displeasedH7489 H5869 him: and he heldH8551 up his father'sH1 hand,H3027 to removeH5493 it from Ephraim'sH669 headH7218 to Manasseh'sH4519 head.H7218
And JosephH3130 saidH559 to his father,H1 Not so,H3651 my father:H1 for thisH2088 is the firstborn;H1060 putH7760 your rightH3225 handH3225 on his head.H7218
And his fatherH1 refused,H3985 and said,H559 I knowH3045 it, my son,H1121 I knowH3045 it: he alsoH1571 shall becomeH1961 a people,H5971 and he alsoH1571 shall be great:H1431 but trulyH199 his youngerH6996 brotherH251 shall be greaterH1431 than he, and his seedH2233 shall becomeH1961 a multitudeH4393 of nations.H1471
And he blessedH1288 them that day,H3117 saying,H559 In you shall IsraelH3478 bless,H1288 saying,H559 GodH430 makeH6213 you as EphraimH669 and as Manasseh:H4519 and he setH7760 EphraimH669 beforeH6440 Manasseh.H4519
And IsraelH3478 saidH559 to Joseph,H3130 Behold,H2009 I die:H4191 but GodH430 shall be with you, and bringH7725 you againH7725 to the landH776 of your fathers.H1
Moreover I have givenH5414 to you oneH259 portionH7926 aboveH5921 your brothers,H251 whichH834 I tookH3947 out of the handH3027 of the AmoriteH567 with my swordH2719 and with my bow.H7198
