Ephraim and Manasseh
Jacob was ill.
Joseph took his two sons to see Jacob.
They were called Ephraim and Manasseh.
Jacob told Joseph how God had blessed him.
God would make him and his family great.
Jacob blessed Joseph.
Then he blessed Ephraim and Manasseh.
Joseph was cross because Jacob blessed Ephraim first.
Ephraim was the youngest son.
Jacob said he knew this.
He said Ephraim would be greater than Manasseh.
He said God would be with Joseph.
He would go back to his own land.
He would be greater than all his brothers.
