14 And Israel putteth out his right hand, and placeth 'it' upon the head of Ephraim, who 'is' the younger, and his left hand upon the head of Manasseh; he hath guided his hands wisely, for Manasseh 'is' the first-born.
15 And he blesseth Joseph, and saith, 'God, before whom my fathers Abraham and Isaac walked habitually: God who is feeding me from my being unto this day:
16 the Messenger who is redeeming me from all evil doth bless the youths, and my name is called upon them, and the name of my fathers Abraham and Isaac; and they increase into a multitude in the midst of the land.'
17 And Joseph seeth that his father setteth his right hand on the head of Ephraim, and it is wrong in his eyes, and he supporteth the hand of his father to turn it aside from off the head of Ephraim to the head of Manasseh;
18 and Joseph saith unto his father, 'Not so, my father, for this 'is' the first-born; set thy right hand on his head.'
