Jacob called his sons and said, “Gather round, that I may tell you what shall befall you in the days to come…. And Jacob finished…breathed his last, and was gathered to his kinfolk.  On some of his children Jacob is very tough, it’s as if he’s saved the worst to last. The harshest things he has held in until now, when he’s dying and he knows for sure, that this is his very last chance to speak. This is a great lesson: tomorrow we can still be tough and harsh on someone, so is it really necessary to speak that way to them today?
