Genesis 49:22-26  Joseph is a fruitful bough, even a fruitful bough by a well; whose branches run over the wall:
23  The archers have sorely grieved him, and shot at him, and hated him:
24  But his bow abode in strength, and the arms of his hands were made strong by the hands of the mighty God of Jacob; (from thence is the shepherd, the stone of Israel:)
25  Even by the God of thy father, who shall help thee; and by the Almighty, who shall bless thee with blessings of heaven above, blessings of the deep that lieth under, blessings of the breasts, and of the womb:
26  The blessings of thy father have prevailed above the blessings of my progenitors unto the utmost bound of the everlasting hills: they shall be on the head of Joseph, and on the crown of the head of him that was separate from his brethren.

Precept to Genesis 49:23:
Genesis 37:23-24  And it came to pass, when Joseph was come unto his brethren, that they stript Joseph out of his coat, his coat of many colours that was on him;
24  And they took him, and cast him into a pit: and the pit was empty, there was no water in it.

Precept to Genesis 49:24:
Job 29:20  My glory was fresh in me, and my bow was renewed in my hand.

Psalms 132:1-5  A Song of degrees. LORD, remember David, and all his afflictions:
2  How he sware unto the LORD, and vowed unto the mighty God of Jacob;
3  Surely I will not come into the tabernacle of my house, nor go up into my bed;
4  I will not give sleep to mine eyes, or slumber to mine eyelids,
5  Until I find out a place for the LORD, an habitation for the mighty God of Jacob.

Psalms 80:1  (To the chief Musician upon Shoshannimeduth, A Psalm of Asaph.) Give ear, O Shepherd of Israel, thou that leadest Joseph like a flock; thou that dwellest between the cherubims, shine forth.

Isaiah 28:15-16  Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves:
16  Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure
foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste.

Precept to Genesis 49:25:
Deuteronomy 33:13-16  And of Joseph he said, Blessed of the LORD be his land, for the precious things of heaven, for the dew, and for the deep that coucheth beneath,
14  And for the precious fruits brought forth by the sun, and for the precious things put forth by the moon,
15  And for the chief things of the ancient mountains, and for the precious things of the lasting hills,
16  And for the precious things of the earth and fulness thereof, and for the good will of him that dwelt in the bush: let the blessing come upon the
head of Joseph, and upon the top of the head of him that was separated from his brethren.

(Joseph, son of Jacob, bore two sons during his time in Egypt please read Genesis 41:50-52 and Genesis 46:20. Ephraim and Manasseh received the blessing of Reuben if you read 1 Chronociles 5:1-2, which in turn caused them to be adopted as one of the son of Jacob read Genesis the 48th chapter. The archers who grieved the children of Joseph are Spaniards and conquistadors who through genocide wiped out a large portion of Ephraim’s population. Ephraim and Manasseh, like many of their brethren were bless with fertile, tropical land.)
