10 Now kthe eyes of Israel were †dim for age, so that he could not see. And he brought them near unto him; and lhe kissed them, and embraced them. 11 And Israel said unto Joseph, I had not thought to see thy face: and, lo, God hath shewed me also thy seed. 12 And Joseph brought them out mfrom between his knees, and he bowed himself with his face to the earth. 13 And Joseph took them both, Ephraim in his right hand toward Israel’s left hand, and Manasseh in his left hand toward Israel’s right hand, and brought them near unto him. 14 And Israel stretched out his right hand, and laid it upon Ephraim’s head, who was the younger, and his left hand upon Manasseh’s head, nguiding his hands wittingly; for Manasseh was the firstborn. 15 And he blessed Joseph, and said, God, obefore whom my fathers Abraham and Isaac did walk, the God which fed me all my life long unto this day, 16 pThe Angel which qredeemed me from all evil, bless the lads; and let rmy name be named on them, and the name of my fathers Abraham and Isaac; and let them †grow into a multitude in the midst of the earth.
