• Genesis 48:19
    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.'
     
  • Genesis 27:28-29
    Therefore may God give you
    Of the dew of heaven,
    Of the fatness of the earth,
    And plenty of grain and wine. Let peoples serve you,
    And nations bow down to you.
    Be master over your brethren,
    And let your mother"s sons bow down to you.
    Cursed be everyone who curses you,
    And blessed be those who bless you!"
     
  • 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."
