Manasseh Son of Joseph

A grandson of Jacob and a tribe of Israel

Manasseh was the eldest son of Joseph. His brother was Ephraim.  Joseph’s father Jacob blessed Manasseh and Ephraim before his death, and their names were given to two of the tribes of Israel.  The tribe of Manasseh settled in the central part of Canaan on both the eastern and western sides of the Jordan river.
