Genesis 48:6-8 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Progeny born to you after them shall remain yours; but their heritage shall be recorded in the names of their brothers.

Footnotes:

  1. 48:7 Since her early death prevented Rachel from bearing more than two sons, Jacob feels justified in treating her two grandsons as if they were her own offspring.
