Genesis 46


Jacob and His Family Move to Egypt

[3departing 1And 2Israel], and all of his, he came upon the Well of the Oath. And he sacrificed a sacrifice to the God of his father Isaac. [3said 1And 2God] to Israel in a vision in the night, saying, Jacob, Jacob! And he said, What is it? And he says to him, I am the God of your fathers; do not fear to go down into Egypt! [4into 1For 6nation 5a great 2I will make 3you] there. And I will go down with you into Egypt. And I will transport you to the end. And Joseph will put his hands upon your eyes. [3rose up 1And 2Jacob] from the Well of the Oath. And [4took up 1the 2sons 3of Israel] Jacob their father, and the belongings, and their wives upon the wagons which Joseph sent to carry him. And taking up their possessions, and all the property which they acquired in the land of Canaan, they entered into Egypt -- Jacob and all his seed with him. Sons, and sons of his sons with him; daughters, and daughters of his daughters, and all his seed he led into Egypt.

Joseph Reunites with Jacob

28  And he sent Judah in front of him to Joseph, to meet him near Heropolis, in the land of Rameses. 29 [3teaming up 1And 2Joseph] his chariots, ascended to meet Israel his father at Heropolis. And seeing him, he fell upon his neck. And he wept weeping greatly. 30 And Israel said to Joseph, I will gladly die from now on, since I have seen your face, for still you live. 31 [3said 1And 2Joseph] to his brothers, In ascending, I will report to Pharaoh. And I will say to him, My brothers, and the house of my father, who were in the land of Canaan, have come to me. 32 And the men are shepherds, [3men 1for 4grazing cattle 2they were]. And the cattle, and the oxen, and all their things, they have brought. 33 If then [2should call 3you 1Pharaoh], and he should say, What [2your work 1is]? 34 You shall say, [3men 4grazing cattle 1We are 2your servants], from child hood until the present, even we and our fathers; that you may dwell in the land of Goshen of Arabia.
