Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Genesis 48:22

_ _ moreover I have given to thee one portion above thy brethren — This was near Shechem (Genesis 33:18; John 4:5; also Joshua 16:1; Joshua 20:7). And it is probable that the Amorites, having seized upon it during one of his frequent absences, the patriarch, with the united forces of his tribe, recovered it from them by his sword and his bow.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Genesis 48:8-22.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Genesis 48:22

He bestowed one portion upon him above his brethren. The lands bequeathed are described to be those which he took out of the hand of the Amorite with his sword and with his bow. He purchased them first, Joshua 24:32, and it seems was afterwards disseized of them by the Amorites, but retook them by the sword, repelling force by force, and recovering his right by violence when he could not otherwise recover it. These lands he settled upon Joseph. Mention is made of this grant, John 4:5. Pursuant to it, this parcel of ground was given to the tribe of Ephraim as their right, and the lot was never cast upon it: and in it Joseph's bones were buried, which perhaps Jacob had an eye to as much as to any thing in this settlement. It may sometimes be both just and prudent to give some children portions above the rest: but a grave is that which we can most count upon as our own in this earth.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Genesis 48:22

Moreover I have given to thee one portion above thy brethren, which (k) I took out of the hand of the Amorite with my sword and with my bow.

(k) By my children whom God spared for my sake.
