Description: This chapter is the conversation between Jacob and his son Joseph. When Jacob became sick, he called out his son, who was missed at childhood. He called his son and his grandchildren to bless them. He blessed his grandchildren by putting his right hand on Manasseh’s head and his left hand on Ephraim’s head and blessed them by saying, “ they shall become the nations and shall be great.”
And he put his hand on Joseph, and he said the God who is with Abraham, Issac. He will be with us and guides us. He has fed me until my birth to old age. He will never leave us. He brought us alive in the hands of the enemy so that he will bless you too.
Jacob had been a shepherd boy who looked after his sheep at his father in law’s house. So he compared the relationship between him and God as that of shepherd and sheep. The shepherd will care for the sheep from birth to old age and guides it day and night. David also a shepherd boy; he too compared the relationship of God as that of sheep and shepherd.
In Hebrews 11:21, Jacob, when dying, according to his faith, blessed each of the sons of Joseph. He said that they would make nations and be a multitude. The firstborn will be blessed with greatness, and the younger one will be blessed more than his brother.

The book of Psalms 80:1 says that “Please listen, O Shepherd of Israel, you who lead Joseph’s descendants like a flock. O God, enthroned above the cherubim, display your radiant glory.” In psalms, 78:52 says that he made his people walk in his ways and guided them like sheep.
