“(Now the eyes of Israel were dimme for age, so that he could not see,) and hee brought them neere vnto him, and he kissed them, and imbraced them.”
King James Version (KJV)
7. And as for me, when I came from Padan, Rachel died by me in the land of Canaan, in the way, when yet there was but a little way to come vnto Ephrath: and I buried her there in the way of Ephrath, the same is Bethlehem. 8. And Israel behelde Iosephs sonnes, and said, Who are these? 9. And Ioseph said vnto his father, They are my sonnes, whom God hath giuen me in this place: and he said, Bring them, I pray thee, vnto me, and I will blesse them. 10. (Now the eyes of Israel were dimme for age, so that he could not see,) and hee brought them neere vnto him, and he kissed them, and imbraced them. 11. And Israel said vnto Ioseph, I had not thought to see thy face: and loe, God hath shewed me also thy seed. 12. And Ioseph brought them out from betweene his knees, and hee bowed himselfe with his face to the earth. 13. And Ioseph tooke them both, Ephraim in his right hand, toward Israels left hand, and Manasseh in his left hand towards Israels right hand, and brought them neere vnto him.
