John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Genesis 48:11

I had not thought to see thy face, (having many years given him up for lost) and lo God hath shewed me also thy seed? — See here, How these two good men own God in their comforts. Joseph saith, They are my sons whom God has given me — And to magnify the favour he adds, in this place of my banishment, slavery and imprisonment. Jacob saith here, God hath shewed me thy seed — Our comforts are then doubly sweet to us, when we see them coming from God's hand.
