The Death of Israel

1 Then Joseph fell on his father's face, and wept over him and kissed him. 2 Joseph commanded his servants the physicians to embalm his father. So the physicians embalmed R1449 Israel. 3 Now forty days were required F1036 for it, F1037 for such F1038 is the period required for embalming. And the Egyptians wept R1450 for him seventy days.

4 When the days of mourning F1039 for him were past, Joseph spoke to the household of Pharaoh, saying, "If now I have found favor in your sight, please speak to F1040 Pharaoh, saying, 5 `My R1451 father made me swear, saying, "Behold, I am about to die; in my grave which R1452 I dug for myself in the land of Canaan, there you shall bury me." Now therefore, please let me go up and bury my father; then I will return.' " 6 Pharaoh said, "Go up and bury your father, as he made you swear."

7 So Joseph went up to bury his father, and with him went up all the servants of Pharaoh, the elders of his household and all the elders of the land of Egypt, 8 and all the household of Joseph and his brothers and his father's household; they left only their little ones and their flocks and their herds in the land of Goshen. 9 There also went up with him both chariots and horsemen; and it was a very great company. 10 When they came to the threshing F1041 floor of Atad, which is beyond the Jordan, they lamented R1453 there with a very great and sorrowful F1042 lamentation; and he observed F1043 seven days mourning for his father. 11 Now when the inhabitants of the land, the Canaanites, saw the mourning at the F1044 threshing floor of Atad, they said, "This is a grievous F1045 mourning F1046 for the Egyptians." Therefore it was named Abel-mizraim, F1047 which is beyond the Jordan.

Burial at Machpelah

12 Thus his sons did for him as he had charged them; 13 for his sons carried him to the land of Canaan and buried him in the R1454 cave of the field of Machpelah before Mamre, which Abraham had bought along with the field for a burial F1048 site from Ephron the Hittite. 14 After he had buried his father, Joseph returned to Egypt, he and his brothers, and all who had gone up with him to bury his father.

15 When Joseph's brothers saw that their father was dead, they said, "What R1455 if Joseph bears a grudge against us and pays us back in full for all the wrong which we did to him!" 16 So they sent F1049 a message to Joseph, saying, "Your father charged before he died, saying, 17 `Thus you shall say to Joseph, "Please forgive, I beg you, the transgression of your brothers and their sin, for they did you wrong."' And now, please forgive the transgression of the servants of the God of your father." And Joseph wept when they spoke to him. 18 Then his brothers also came and fell R1456 down before him and said, "Behold, we are your servants." 19 But Joseph said to them, "Do not be afraid, for am I in God's place? 20 "As for you, you R1457 meant evil against me, but God meant it for good in order to bring about this F1050 present result, to preserve many people alive. 21 "So therefore, do not be afraid; I R1458 will provide for you and your little ones." So he comforted them and spoke kindly F1051 to them.

Death of Joseph

22 Now Joseph stayed in Egypt, he and his father's household, and Joseph lived one hundred and ten years. 23 Joseph saw the third generation of Ephraim's sons; also the sons of Machir, the son of Manasseh, were born R1459 on Joseph's knees. 24 Joseph said to his brothers, "I R1460 am about to die, but God will surely take F1052 care of you and bring you up from this land to the land which He promised F1053 on oath to Abraham, R1461 to Isaac R1462 and to Jacob." R1463 25 Then Joseph made the sons of Israel swear, saying, "God will surely take F1054 care of you, and you R1464 shall carry my bones up from here." 26 So Joseph died at the age of one hundred and ten years; and he F1055 was embalmed R1465 and placed in a coffin in Egypt.
