Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Genesis 48:3-4

_ _ God Almighty appeared unto me at Luz — The object of Jacob, in thus reverting to the memorable vision at Beth-el [Genesis 28:10-15] — one of the great landmarks in his history — was to point out the splendid promises in reserve for his posterity — to engage Joseph’s interest and preserve his continued connection with the people of God, rather than with the Egyptians.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Genesis 48:1-7.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Genesis 48:3

God blessed me — And let that blessing be entailed upon them. God had promised him two things, a numerous issue, and Canaan for an inheritance. And Joseph's sons, pursuant hereunto, should each of them multiply into a tribe, and each of them have a distinct lot in Canaan, equal with Jacob's own sons. See how he blessed them by faith in that which God had said to him Hebrews 11:21.
