• Genesis 48:14-20
    Then Israel stretched out his right hand and laid it on Ephraim's head, who was the younger, and his left hand on Manasseh's head, guiding his hands knowingly, for Manasseh was the firstborn. And he blessed Joseph, and said:
    “God, before whom my fathers Abraham and Isaac walked,
    The God who has fed me all my life long to this day, The Angel who has redeemed me from all evil,
    Bless the lads;
    Let my name be named upon them,
    And the name of my fathers Abraham and Isaac;
    And let them grow into a multitude in the midst of the earth." Now when Joseph saw that his father laid his right hand on the head of Ephraim, it displeased him; so he took hold of his father's hand to remove it from Ephraim's head to Manasseh's head. And Joseph said to his father, 'Not so, my father, for this one is the firstborn; put your right hand on his head.' But his father refused and said, 'I know, my son, I know. He also shall become a people, and he also shall be great; but truly his younger brother shall be greater than he, and his descendants shall become a multitude of nations.' So he blessed them that day, saying, “By you Israel will bless, saying, ‘May God make you as Ephraim and as Manasseh!’” And thus he set Ephraim before Manasseh.

  • Deuteronomy 33:13-17
    And of Joseph he said:
    " Blessed of the LORD is his land,
    With the precious things of heaven, with the dew,
    And the deep lying beneath, With the precious fruits of the sun,
    With the precious produce of the months, With the best things of the ancient mountains,
    With the precious things of the everlasting hills, With the precious things of the earth and its fullness,
    And the favor of Him who dwelt in the bush.
    Let the blessing come "on the head of Joseph,
    And on the crown of the head of him who was separate from his brothers." His glory is like a firstborn bull,
    And his horns like the horns of the wild ox;
    Together with them
    He shall push the peoples
    To the ends of the earth;
    They are the ten thousands of Ephraim,
    And they are the thousands of Manasseh."
