Song of Solomon 4:2 King James Version (KJV)
2 Thy teeth are like a flock of sheep that are even shorn, which came up from the washing; whereof every one bear twins, and none is barren among them.

Gen. 26:34 "And Esau was forty years old when he took to wife Judith the daughter of Beeri the Hittite, and Bashemath the daughter of Elon the Hittite:"

Later in Gen. 28:9, he marries Mahalath the daughter of Ishmael Abraham's son. Three with their names in bold. :)

To which son of Joseph did Jacob give the preeminent blessing?
The promises given to Abraham was two-fold most people miss.

The spiritual promises—the promises of the “one seed,” Christ,
and of salvation through Him—the Bible calls the scepter promise.

If we are Christ’s we are Abraham’s children (Galatians 3:29)
Jesus Christ was born of the house of David and the tribe of Judah.
Grace the scepter—the promise of Christ and of grace—was passed on
to the Jews! “Salvation,” Jesus said, “is of the Jews”! (John 4:22).

“The gospel of Christ,” wrote Paul, “is the power of God unto salvation to every
one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek” (Romans 1:16).


But the material and national promises relating to many nations, national wealth,
prosperity and power, and possession of the Holy Land, the Bible calls the birthright.

Both the birthright and the scepter were repromised by the Eternal
to Abraham and Isaac and to Jacob, whose name was changed to Israel

The sceptre shall not depart from Judah …” (Genesis 49:10).
But the birthright was Joseph’s” (1 Chronicles 5:2).

For Judah prevailed above his brethren, and of him came the chief ruler;
but the birthright was Joseph’s.”

So at this point the two divisions of the Abrahamic promises the birthright,
involving material and national promises,and the scepter, including the kingly
and spiritual promises were separated.

The next legal inheritor of the birthright was Reuben, firstbornson of Israel,
by his first wife, Leah. But Reuben, like Esau, lost it. And Joseph, 11th-born
of Jacob, but firstborn of Rachel, his second and truly loved wife, received it.

The birthright belonged, legally, to Reuben, not Joseph. It is related in
1 Chronicles 5:1-2 how it fell to Joseph.
-

At the time of Jacob’s death, he and his sons were living in Egypt.
51And Joseph called the name of the firstborn Manasseh: For God,
said he, hath made me forget all my toil, and all my father's house.

52And the name of the second called he Ephraim: For God hath
caused me to be fruitful in the land of my affliction
And Jacob said unto Joseph, God Almighty appeared unto me
at Luz in the land of Canaan, and blessed me, And said unto me,

Behold, I will make thee fruitful, and multiply thee, and I will
make of thee a multitude of people; and will give this land to thy
seed after thee for an everlasting possession” (Genesis 48:2-4).

These promises are those of the birthright. These promises are of multiple
seed—a multitude of people—and possession of the Promised Land.

“And now thy two sons, Ephraim and Manasseh, which were born unto thee
in the land of Egypt before I came unto thee into Egypt, are mine; as Reuben
and Simeon, they shall be mine”(verse 5).

Manasseh’s name is mentioned first, because Manasseh was the elder.
But old Jacob now mentioned the name of Ephraim first.

Here we see supernatural guidance!

and let my name be named on them, and the name of my fathers
Abraham and Isaac; and let them grow into a multitude in the
midst of the earth” (verses 14-16).

Israel did not confer this blessing on just one, but on both—
“Bless the lads,” he said. This blessing went upon them jointly.

“Let my name be named on them” was part of this blessing. His name was Israel.
Hence, it was the descendants of these lads, not the descendants of Judah,
or the Jews, who were named Israel. the name Israel was to be indelibly
stamped on Ephraim and Manasseh!

Ephraim and Manasseh together received the right to the name Israel.
It was to become the national name of their descendants.

Manasseh becoming a great nation, and Ephraim a still greater company of nations.

And their descendants were never Jews!


Isaiah 45:11 (KJV)
Thus saith the Lord, the Holy One of Israel, and his Maker, Ask me of things
to come concerning my sons, and concerning the work of my hands command ye me.

This is so true. I think the devil is behind those folks using the name Israel for their new country in 1948. They are Judah. The following is Jacob's prophecy describing Joseph's sons in the last days.

Gen. 49:22-26, 28
"Joseph is a fruitful bough, even a fruitful bough by a well; whose branches run over the wall: The archers have sorely grieved him, and shot at him, and hated him: 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:] 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: 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. All these are the twelve tribes of Israel: and this is it that their father spake unto them, and blessed them; every one according to his blessing he blessed them." :cool:

What exactly is happening in the passage about the circumcision of Moses' son in Exodus 4:24-26?
The answer lies in the previous text...

The Lord said to Moses, "When you go back to Egypt see that you perform before Pharaoh all the wonders which I have put in your power; but I will harden his heart so that he will not let the people go. Then you shall say to Pharaoh, 'Thus says the Lord , "Israel is My son, My firstborn. So I said to you, 'Let My son go that he may serve Me'; but you have refused to let him go. Behold, I will kill your son, your firstborn."'"
Exodus 4:21‭-‬23 NASB
https://bible.com/bible/100/exo.4.21-23.NASB

It was Pharaohs son He wanted to kill,

Now it came about at the lodging place on the way that the Lord met him and sought to put him to death. Then Zipporah took a flint and cut off her son's foreskin and threw it at Moses' feet, and she said, "You are indeed a bridegroom of blood to me." So He let him alone. At that time she said, " You are a bridegroom of blood"-because of the circumcision.
Exodus 4:24‭-‬26 NASB
https://bible.com/bible/100/exo.4.24-26.NASB

The "him" is not Moses but Pharaoh's first born if He did not let His first born, Isreal, go.

I have to go to work now, but if I am right, then later I shall find a question.
