“And Israel said vnto Ioseph, I had not thought to see thy face: and loe, God hath shewed me also thy seed.”
King James Version (KJV)
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. 14. And Israel stretched out his right hand, and layd it vpon Ephraims head who was the yonger; and his left hand vpon Manassehs head, guiding his hands wittingly: for Manasseh was the first borne.
