29, Genesis 48-50

Genesis 48

1 And it came to pass after these things, that one told Joseph, Behold, thy father is sick: and he took with him his two sons, Manasseh and Ephraim. 11 I View Tool
2 And one told Jacob, and said, Behold, thy son Joseph cometh unto thee: and Israel strengthened himself, and sat upon the bed. 10 I View Tool
3 And Jacob said unto Joseph, God Almighty appeared unto me at Luz in the land of Canaan, and blessed me, 10 I View Tool
4 And said unto me, Behold, I will make thee fruitful, and multiply thee, and I will make of thee a multitude of people; and will give this land to thy seed after thee for an everlasting possession. 10 I View Tool
5 And now thy two sons, Ephraim and Manasseh, which were born unto thee in the land of Egypt before I came unto thee into Egypt, are mine; as Reuben and Simeon, they shall be mine. 10 I View Tool
6 And thy issue, which thou begettest after them, shall be thine, and shall be called after the name of their brethren in their inheritance. 10 I View Tool
7 And as for me, when I came from Padan, Rachel died by me in the land of Canaan in the way, when yet there was but a little way to come unto Ephrath: and I buried her there in the way of Ephrath; the same is Bethlehem. 10 I View Tool
8 And Israel beheld Joseph’s sons, and said, Who are these? 10 I View Tool
9 And Joseph said unto his father, They are my sons, whom God hath given me in this place. And he said, Bring them, I pray thee, unto me, and I will bless them. 10 I View Tool
10 Now the eyes of Israel were dim for age, so that he could not see. And he brought them near unto him; and he kissed them, and embraced them. 10 I View Tool
11 And Israel said unto Joseph, I had not thought to see thy face: and, lo, God hath shewed me also thy seed. 10 I View Tool
12 And Joseph brought them out from between his knees, and he bowed himself with his face to the earth. 9 I View Tool
13 And Joseph took them both, Ephraim in his right hand toward Israel’s left hand, and Manasseh in his left hand toward Israel’s right hand, and brought them near unto him. 10 I View Tool
14 And Israel stretched out his right hand, and laid it upon Ephraim’s head, who was the younger, and his left hand upon Manasseh’s head, guiding his hands wittingly; for Manasseh was the firstborn. 10 I View Tool
15 And he blessed Joseph, and said, God, before whom my fathers Abraham and Isaac did walk, the God which fed me all my life long unto this day, 12 I View Tool
16 The Angel which redeemed me from all evil, bless the lads; and let my name be named on them, and the name of my fathers Abraham and Isaac; and let them grow into a multitude in the midst of the earth. 10 I View Tool
17 And when Joseph saw that his father laid his right hand upon the head of Ephraim, it displeased him: and he held up his father’s hand, to remove it from Ephraim’s head unto Manasseh’s head. 10 I View Tool
18 And Joseph said unto his father, Not so, my father: for this is the firstborn; put thy right hand upon his head. 10 I View Tool
19 And his father refused, and said, I know it, my son, I know it: he also shall become a people, and he also shall be great: but truly his younger brother shall be greater than he, and his seed shall become a multitude of nations. 10 I View Tool
20 And he blessed them that day, saying, In thee shall Israel bless, saying, God make thee as Ephraim and as Manasseh: and he set Ephraim before Manasseh. 10 I View Tool
21 And Israel said unto Joseph, Behold, I die: but God shall be with you, and bring you again unto the land of your fathers. 10 I View Tool
22 Moreover I have given to thee one portion above thy brethren, which I took out of the hand of the Amorite with my sword and with my bow. 10 I View Tool

 

Genesis 49

1 And Jacob called unto his sons, and said, Gather yourselves together, that I may tell you that which shall befall you in the last days. 10 I View Tool
2 Gather yourselves together, and hear, ye sons of Jacob; and hearken unto Israel your father. 10 I View Tool
3 Reuben, thou art my firstborn, my might, and the beginning of my strength, the excellency of dignity, and the excellency of power: 10 I View Tool
4 Unstable as water, thou shalt not excel; because thou wentest up to thy father’s bed; then defiledst thou it: he went up to my couch. 10 I View Tool
5 Simeon and Levi are brethren; instruments of cruelty are in their habitations. 10 I View Tool
6 O my soul, come not thou into their secret; unto their assembly, mine honour, be not thou united: for in their anger they slew a man, and in their selfwill they digged down a wall. 10 I View Tool
7 Cursed be their anger, for it was fierce; and their wrath, for it was cruel: I will divide them in Jacob, and scatter them in Israel. 10 I View Tool
8 Judah, thou art he whom thy brethren shall praise: thy hand shall be in the neck of thine enemies; thy father’s children shall bow down before thee. 10 I View Tool
9 Judah is a lion’s whelp: from the prey, my son, thou art gone up: he stooped down, he couched as a lion, and as an old lion; who shall rouse him up? 10 I View Tool
10 The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be. 10 I View Tool
11 Binding his foal unto the vine, and his ass’s colt unto the choice vine; he washed his garments in wine, and his clothes in the blood of grapes: 10 I View Tool
12 His eyes shall be red with wine, and his teeth white with milk. 10 I View Tool
13 Zebulun shall dwell at the haven of the sea; and he shall be for an haven of ships; and his border shall be unto Zidon. 10 I View Tool
14 Issachar is a strong ass couching down between two burdens: 10 I View Tool
15 And he saw that rest was good, and the land that it was pleasant; and bowed his shoulder to bear, and became a servant unto tribute. 10 I View Tool
16 Dan shall judge his people, as one of the tribes of Israel. 10 I View Tool
17 Dan shall be a serpent by the way, an adder in the path, that biteth the horse heels, so that his rider shall fall backward. 10 I View Tool
18 I have waited for thy salvation, O Lord. 16 I View Tool
19 Gad, a troop shall overcome him: but he shall overcome at the last. 10 I View Tool
20 Out of Asher his bread shall be fat, and he shall yield royal dainties. 10 I View Tool
21 Naphtali is a hind let loose: he giveth goodly words. 10 I View Tool
22 Joseph is a fruitful bough, even a fruitful bough by a well; whose branches run over the wall: 10 I View Tool
23 The archers have sorely grieved him, and shot at him, and hated him: 10 I View Tool
24 But his bow abode in strength, and the arms of his hands were made strong by the hands of the mighty God of Jacob; (from thence is the shepherd, the stone of Israel:) 10 I View Tool
25 Even by the God of thy father, who shall help thee; and by the Almighty, who shall bless thee with blessings of heaven above, blessings of the deep that lieth under, blessings of the breasts, and of the womb: 12 I View Tool
26 The blessings of thy father have prevailed above the blessings of my progenitors unto the utmost bound of the everlasting hills: they shall be on the head of Joseph, and on the crown of the head of him that was separate from his brethren. 10 I View Tool
27 Benjamin shall ravin as a wolf: in the morning he shall devour the prey, and at night he shall divide the spoil. 10 I View Tool
28 All these are the twelve tribes of Israel: and this is it that their father spake unto them, and blessed them; every one according to his blessing he blessed them. 10 I View Tool
29 And he charged them, and said unto them, I am to be gathered unto my people: bury me with my fathers in the cave that is in the field of Ephron the Hittite, 10 I View Tool
30 In the cave that is in the field of Machpelah, which is before Mamre, in the land of Canaan, which Abraham bought with the field of Ephron the Hittite for a possession of a buryingplace. 10 I View Tool
31 There they buried Abraham and Sarah his wife; there they buried Isaac and Rebekah his wife; and there I buried Leah. 10 I View Tool
32 The purchase of the field and of the cave that is therein was from the children of Heth. 10 I View Tool
33 And when Jacob had made an end of commanding his sons, he gathered up his feet into the bed, and yielded up the ghost, and was gathered unto his people. 10 I View Tool

 

Genesis 50

1 And Joseph fell upon his father’s face, and wept upon him, and kissed him. 10 I View Tool
2 And Joseph commanded his servants the physicians to embalm his father: and the physicians embalmed Israel. 10 I View Tool
3 And forty days were fulfilled for him; for so are fulfilled the days of those which are embalmed: and the Egyptians mourned for him threescore and ten days. 10 I View Tool
4 And when the days of his mourning were past, Joseph spake unto the house of Pharaoh, saying, If now I have found grace in your eyes, speak, I pray you, in the ears of Pharaoh, saying, 10 I View Tool
5 My father made me swear, saying, Lo, I die: in my grave which I have digged for me in the land of Canaan, there shalt thou bury me. Now therefore let me go up, I pray thee, and bury my father, and I will come again. 10 I View Tool
6 And Pharaoh said, Go up, and bury thy father, according as he made thee swear. 10 I View Tool
7 And Joseph went up to bury his father: and with him went up all the servants of Pharaoh, the elders of his house, and all the elders of the land of Egypt, 9 I View Tool
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 left in the land of Goshen. 10 I View Tool
9 And there went up with him both chariots and horsemen: and it was a very great company. 10 I View Tool
10 And they came to the threshingfloor of Atad, which is beyond Jordan, and there they mourned with a great and very sore lamentation: and he made a mourning for his father seven days. 10 I View Tool
11 And when the inhabitants of the land, the Canaanites, saw the mourning in the floor of Atad, they said, This is a grievous mourning to the Egyptians: wherefore the name of it was called Abelmizraim, which is beyond Jordan. 10 I View Tool
12 And his sons did unto him according as he commanded them: 10 I View Tool
13 For his sons carried him into the land of Canaan, and buried him in the cave of the field of Machpelah, which Abraham bought with the field for a possession of a buryingplace of Ephron the Hittite, before Mamre. 10 I View Tool
14 And Joseph returned into Egypt, he, and his brethren, and all that went up with him to bury his father, after he had buried his father. 10 I View Tool
15 And when Joseph’s brethren saw that their father was dead, they said, Joseph will peradventure hate us, and will certainly requite us all the evil which we did unto him. 10 I View Tool
16 And they sent a messenger unto Joseph, saying, Thy father did command before he died, saying, 10 I View Tool
17 So shall ye say unto Joseph, Forgive, I pray thee now, the trespass of thy brethren, and their sin; for they did unto thee evil: and now, we pray thee, forgive the trespass of the servants of the God of thy father. And Joseph wept when they spake unto him. 10 I View Tool
18 And his brethren also went and fell down before his face; and they said, Behold, we be thy servants. 10 I View Tool
19 And Joseph said unto them, Fear not: for am I in the place of God? 10 I View Tool
20 But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive. 18 I View Tool
21 Now therefore fear ye not: I will nourish you, and your little ones. And he comforted them, and spake kindly unto them. 10 I View Tool
22 And Joseph dwelt in Egypt, he, and his father’s house: and Joseph lived an hundred and ten years. 10 I View Tool
23 And Joseph saw Ephraim’s children of the third generation: the children also of Machir the son of Manasseh were brought up upon Joseph’s knees. 10 I View Tool
24 And Joseph said unto his brethren, I die: and God will surely visit you, and bring you out of this land unto the land which he sware to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob. 12 I View Tool
25 And Joseph took an oath of the children of Israel, saying, God will surely visit you, and ye shall carry up my bones from hence. 10 I View Tool
26 So Joseph died, being an hundred and ten years old: and they embalmed him, and he was put in a coffin in Egypt. 12 I View Tool
