In Genesis 48, Jacob is ill and Joseph comes to visit his father with his two sons Manasseh and Ephraim.  Jacob adopts Joseph's two sons.  Manasseh was the first born and Ephraim was the second son of Joseph.  Jacob reaches out to pronouce the blesssings of God on Ephraim as if Ephraim was the first born son.   Joseph seeks to correct Jacob's actions by telling his father that he has touched the youngest sibling, Ephraim, instead of Manasseh.  Jacob proceeds, even given Joseph's admonitions, and blesses Ephraim ahead of Manasseh.  Therefore, Manasseh still prospered, but not with the blessings of a first born child.
