Joseph named the firstborn
Manasseh, “For,” he said, “God has made me forget all my trouble and all my father’s household.”
Now to Joseph in the land of Egypt were born Manasseh and Ephraim, whom Asenath, the daughter of Potiphera, priest of On, bore to him.
Now your two sons, who were born to you in the land of Egypt before I came to you in Egypt, are mine;
Ephraim and Manasseh shall be mine, as Reuben and Simeon are.
