Genesis 49:2-28: “Gather together and hear, you sons of Jacob, and listen to Israel your father. “Reuben, you are my firstborn, my might and the beginning of my strength, the excellency of dignity and the excellency of power. […] “Simeon and Levi are brothers; instruments of cruelty are in their dwelling place. […] “Judah, you are he whom your brothers shall praise; your hand shall be on the neck of your enemies; your father’s children shall bow down before you. […] “Zebulun shall dwell by the haven of the sea; he shall become a haven for ships, and his border shall adjoin Sidon. “Issachar is a strong donkey, lying down between two burdens; […] “Dan shall judge his people as one of the tribes of Israel. […] “Gad, a troop shall tramp upon him, but he shall triumph at last. “Bread from Asher shall be rich, and he shall yield royal dainties. “Naphtali is a deer let loose; he uses beautiful words. “Joseph is a fruitful bough, a fruitful bough by a well; his branches run over the wall. […] “Benjamin is a ravenous wolf; in the morning he shall devour the prey, and at night he shall divide the spoil.” All these are the twelve tribes of Israel, and this is what their father spoke to them. And he blessed them; he blessed each one according to his own blessing.

Revelation 7:4-8: And I heard the number of those who were sealed. One hundred and forty-four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel were sealed: of the tribe of Judah twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Reuben twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Gad twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Asher twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Naphtali twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Manasseh twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Simeon twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Levi twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Issachar twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Zebulun twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Joseph twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Benjamin twelve thousand were sealed.

Genesis says that the twelve tribes of Israel contains Dan but not Manasseh, but Revelation says that the twelve tribes of Israel contains Manasseh but not Dan.
