Genesis 48 – 49 “The Blessings”

Jacob vividly remembered the outstanding encounter with the LORD at Bethel; he adopts Joseph’s sons as his own, remembered Rachel’s death, blesses the younger more than the older and prays upon them…the son of the right hand received a greater proportion of the blessing.

“Jacob’s testimony was a testimony of grace, not personal merit. He was not saying how faithful he was to God, but how faithful God was to him.”
