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.

(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.)
