SAA Notes

Manasseh and Ephraim are at least between 7 years of age and their early teens, when Jacob blesses them. Jacob acts as God’s prophet with his two grandsons. He makes no mistake when he blesses Ephraim, the second born with the first-born blessing. Notice that Jacob is the first to use the phrase: “the LORD is my shepherd.” (48:15)
