Genesis 48, 1 – 5 „Some time afterward, Joseph was informed, Your father is failing. So he took along with him his two sons, Manasseh and Ephraim. 2When Jacob was told, Your son Joseph has come to you, Israel rallied his strength and sat up in bed. 3Jacob then said to Joseph: God Almighty appeared to me at Luz in the land of Canaan, and blessing me, 4he said, ‘I will make you fertile and multiply you and make you into an assembly of peoples, and I will give this land to your descendants after you as a permanent possession.’ 5So now your two sons who were born to you in the land of Egypt before I joined you here, shall be mine; Ephraim and Manasseh shall be mine as much as Reuben and Simeon are mine”.
