Ephra-im


E’phra-im (double fruitfulness), the second son of Joseph by his wife Asenath. (b.c. 1715–1708.) The first indication we have of that ascendency over his elder brother Manasseh which at a later period the tribe of Ephraim so unmistakably possessed is in the blessing of the children by Jacob. Gen. 48.
