Jacob blesses Joseph's sons and places Ephraim before firstborn Manasseh (Genesis 47:28 - 48:22) - Bible Blender
In these verses, we see the story of Jacob and Joseph jump ahead 17 years. The famine has passed, and Jacob is now 147 years old and preparing to die. He begins delivering his blessing upon his sons, starting with Joseph’s line. The blessing is simple – they will carry on Jacob’s name and increase greatly in number. They will become power nations.
