Gen 41:51–52

41:51, 52 See text notes. As the names of his sons indicate, Joseph was ever mindful of God’s hand upon him. The first commemorates God’s preservation through great hardship (v. 51), the second memorializes the divine favor with echoes of the Abrahamic blessing (v. 52; cf. 17:6, 20; 28:3; 48:4; cf. Ps. 105:23, 24).
