48:11 'I never even hoped to see your face,' said Israel to Joseph. 'But now God has even let me see your children.'
Vayomer Yisra'el el-Yosef re'oh faneycha lo filalti vehineh her'ah oti Elohim gam et-zar'echa.
48:12 Joseph took [the boys] from near his [father's] lap, and he bowed down to the ground.
Vayotse Yosef otam me'im birkav vayishtachu le'apav artsah.



Commentary:

his father's lap
  (Sekhel Tov; Sforno). Or, 'from between his [own] knees' (Radak; Hirsch. Cf. Lekach Tov; Sh'muel ben Chofni Gaon).
