Vayechi – Hamalach Hagoeil I

“May the angel who redeems me from all evil bless the lads, and may my name be declared upon them, and the names of my forefathers Abraham and Isaac, and may they proliferate abundantly like fish within the land.” (Genesis 48:16)

Jacob referred to any word of God, which He issues to or on behalf of those who love Him as Malach – Angel. This is analogous to Psalms 29:7: “The voice of God kindles flames of fire.” Jacob expressed the hope that God’s word would always come to the assistance of Joseph’s sons and bless them. (Or Hachaim HaKadosh)
