Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Genesis 41:50-52

_ _ unto Joseph were born two sons — These domestic events, which increased his temporal happiness, develop the piety of his character in the names conferred upon his children.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Genesis 41:46-57.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Genesis 41:50

Two sons — In the names he gave them, he owned the divine Providence giving this happy turn to his affairs. He was made to forget his misery, but could he be so unnatural as to forget all his father's house? And he was made fruitful in the land of his affliction. It had been the land of his affliction, and, in some sense, it was still so, for his distance from his father was still his affliction. Ephraim signifies fruitfulness, and Manasseh forgetfulness.
