Gen 48:1-7, (LITV)
|1 ||And after these things it happened, one said to Joseph, Behold, your father is sick. And he took his two sons with him, Manasseh and Ephraim.|
|2 ||And one spoke to Jacob and said, Behold, your son Joseph has come to you. And Israel took strength and sat on the bed.|
|3 ||And Jacob said to Joseph, God Almighty appeared to me in Luz in the land of Canaan and blessed me,|
|4 ||and said to me, Behold, I will make you fruitful and will multiply you, and will make you a multitude of peoples. And I will give this land to your seed after you as a continual possession.|
|5 ||And now your two sons, those born to you in the land of Egypt before my coming to you in Egypt, are mine, Ephraim and Manasseh, like Reuben and Simeon, even they shall be mine.|
|6 ||And your offspring which you father after them, they shall be yours. According to the name of their brothers they shall be called in their inheritance.|
|7 ||And I, when I came from Padan, Rachel died on me in the land of Canaan in the way, with only a little way to come to Ephrath. And I buried her there in the way to Ephrath, it being Bethlehem.|
