Abraham and Isaac did walk, the God which fed me all my life long unto

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.

the head of Ephraim, it displeased him: and he held up his father's

is the firstborn; put thy right hand upon his head.
