The First Book of Moses, called Genesis

Chapter 50

1

And Joseph fell4 upon his father's face, and wept4 upon him, and kissed4 him.

2

And Joseph commanded17 his servants the physicians6 to embalm2 his father: and the physicians6 embalmed4 Israel.

3

And forty days were fulfilled4 for him; for so are fulfilled4 the days of those which are embalmed:7 and the Egyptians mourned4 for him threescore and ten days.

4

And when the days of his mourning were past,4 Joseph spake17 unto the house of Pharaoh, saying,2 If now I have found1 grace in your eyes, speak,16 I pray you, in the ears of Pharaoh, saying,2

5

My father made me swear,52 saying,2 Lo, I die:5 in my grave which I have digged1 for me in the land of Canaan, there shalt thou bury4 me. Now therefore let me go up,4 I pray thee, and bury4 my father, and I will come again.4

6

And Pharaoh said,4 Go up,3 and bury3 thy father, according as he made thee swear.52

7

And Joseph went up4 to bury2 his father: and with him went up4 all the servants of Pharaoh, the elders of his house, and all the elders of the land of Egypt,

8

And all the house of Joseph, and his brethren, and his father's house: only their little ones, and their flocks, and their herds, they left1 in the land of Goshen.

9

And there went up4 with him both chariots and horsemen: and it was a very great company.

10

And they came4 to the threshingfloor of Atad, which [is] beyond Jordan, and there they mourned4 with a great and very sore lamentation: and he made4 a mourning for his father seven days.

11

And when the inhabitants6 of the land, the Canaanites, saw4 the mourning in the floor of Atad, they said,4 This [is] a grievous mourning to the Egyptians: wherefore the name of it was called1 Abelmizraim, which [is] beyond Jordan.

12

And his sons did4 unto him according as he commanded14 them:

13

For his sons carried4 him into the land of Canaan, and buried4 him in the cave of the field of Machpelah, which Abraham bought1 with the field for a possession of a buryingplace of Ephron the Hittite, before Mamre.

14

And Joseph returned4 into Egypt, he, and his brethren, and all that went up6 with him to bury2 his father, after he had buried2 his father.

15

And when Joseph's brethren saw4 that their father was dead,1 they said,4 Joseph will peradventure hate4 us, and will certainly53 requite55 us all the evil which we did1 unto him.

16

And they sent a messenger17 unto Joseph, saying,2 Thy father did command14 before he died, saying,2

17

So shall ye say4 unto Joseph, Forgive,3 I pray thee now, the trespass of thy brethren, and their sin; for they did1 unto thee evil: and now, we pray thee, forgive3 the trespass of the servants of the God of thy father. And Joseph wept4 when they spake15 unto him.

18

And his brethren also went4 and fell down4 before his face; and they said,4 Behold, we [be] thy servants.

19

And Joseph said4 unto them, Fear4 not: for [am] I in the place of God?

20

But as for you, ye thought1 evil against me; [but] God meant it1 unto good, to bring to pass,2 as [it is] this day, to save much people alive.53

21

Now therefore fear4 ye not: I will nourish46 you, and your little ones. And he comforted17 them, and spake17 kindly unto them.

22

And Joseph dwelt4 in Egypt, he, and his father's house: and Joseph lived4 an hundred and ten years.

23

And Joseph saw4 Ephraim's children of the third [generation]: the children also of Machir the son of Manasseh were brought up27 upon Joseph's knees.

24

And Joseph said4 unto his brethren, I die:5 and God will surely2 visit4 you, and bring52 you out of this land unto the land which he sware8 to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob.

25

And Joseph took an oath55 of the children of Israel, saying,2 God will surely2 visit4 you, and ye shall carry up52 my bones from hence.

26

So Joseph died,4 [being] an hundred and ten years old: and they embalmed4 him, and he was put4 in a coffin in Egypt.
