Jacob had given Judah the pre-eminence in his prophetic blessing; and that tribe was to have the precedence in the encampments of Israel; accordingly God had increased them more than any of their brethren. Ephraim and Manasseh, according to the same prophecy, were numbered as distinct tribes, Ephraim having the superiority, as it was foretold; and Joseph indeed appears 'a fruitful bough.'
