The sons of Rachel were Joseph and Benjamin. The sons of Bilhah were Dan and Asher. The sons of Zilpah were Gad and Naphtali. He had 12 sons and 1 daughter. His 12 sons were Reuben, Simeon, Levi, Judah, Issachar, Zebulun, Dan, Asher, Gad, Naphtali, Joseph and Benjamin. His daughter was Dinah. The 12 sons of Jacob form the 12 tribes of Israel.

The tribe of Joseph is formed by his 2 sons including Ephraim and Manasseh. Jacob was the one who stole Esau, his elder twin brother’s blessing. God determined that Jacob will inherit the promised land of Canaan promised to Abraham and Isaac.

Jacob promised to give a tenth of all he earned if God bring him back safely and God did fulfilled that promise to him.

Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings. Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed me, even this whole nation. Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it. And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the LORD of hosts. And all nations shall call you blessed: for ye shall be a delightsome land, saith the LORD of hosts. (Malachi 3:8-12 KJV)
