Benjamin was the last born of Israel's twelve sons (see Children of Jacob), the younger of the two children by Rachel (Genesis 35:24). He was born on the road between Bethlehem and Bethel, the only of Jacob's sons to be born in what is today Israel. Tragically, Rachel died in giving him birth (Genesis 35:16-20). Her last words were to name the infant Benoni, meaning son of my sorrow, which was changed by Jacob to Benjamin, meaning son of my right hand.
