New International Version
17 When Joseph saw his father placing his right hand(A) on Ephraim’s head(B) he was displeased; so he took hold of his father’s hand to move it from Ephraim’s head to Manasseh’s head. 18 Joseph said to him, “No, my father, this one is the firstborn; put your right hand on his head.”(C)
19 But his father refused and said, “I know, my son, I know. He too will become a people, and he too will become great.(D) Nevertheless, his younger brother will be greater than he,(E) and his descendants will become a group of nations.(F)” 20 He blessed(G) them that day(H) and said,
So he put Ephraim ahead of Manasseh.
21 Then Israel said to Joseph, “I am about to die, but God will be with you[b](M) and take you[c] back to the land of your[d] fathers.(N) 22 And to you I give one more ridge of land[e](O) than to your brothers,(P) the ridge I took from the Amorites with my sword(Q) and my bow.”
