Genesis 50


50:1 And Joseph fell upon his father's face, and wept upon him,
 and kissed him.
50:2 And Joseph commanded his servants the physicians to embalm
 his father: and the physicians embalmed Israel.
50:3 And forty days were fulfilled for him; (for so are
 fulfilled the days of those who are embalmed:) and the
 Egyptians mourned for him seventy days.
50:4 And when the days of his mourning were past, Joseph spoke
 to the house of Pharaoh, saying, If now I have found grace in
 your eyes, speak, I pray you, in the ears of Pharaoh, saying,
50:5 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, I pray thee, and bury my
 father, and I will come again.
50:6 And Pharaoh said, Go up, and bury thy father, according as
 he made thee swear.
50:7 And Joseph went up to bury his father: and with him went
 all the servants of Pharaoh, the elders of his house, and all
 the elders of the land of Egypt,
50:8 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.
50:9 And there went with him both chariots and horsemen: and it
 was a very great company.
50:10 And they came to the threshing-floor 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.
50:11 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 Abel-mizraim, which [is] beyond Jordan.
50:12 And his sons did to him according as he commanded them:
50:13 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 burying-place of
 Ephron the Hittite, before Mamre.
50:14 And Joseph returned to Egypt, he and his brethren, and all
 that went up with him to bury his father, after he had buried
 his father.
50:15 And when Joseph's brethren saw that their father was dead,
 they said, Joseph will perhaps hate us, and will certainly
 requite us all the evil which we did to him.
50:16 And they sent messengers to Joseph, saying, Thy father
 commanded before he died, saying,
50:17 So shall ye say to Joseph, Forgive, I pray thee now, the
 trespass of thy brethren, and their sin; for they did to thee
 evil: and now, we pray thee, forgive the trespass of the
 servants of the God of thy father. And Joseph wept when they
 spoke to him.
50:18 And his brethren also went and fell down before his face:
 and they said, Behold, we [are] thy servants.
50:19 And Joseph said to them, Fear not: for [am] I in the place
 of God?
50:20 But as for you, ye thought evil against me; [but] God
 meant it for good, to bring to pass, as [it is] this day, to
 save many people alive.
50:21 Now therefore fear ye not: I will nourish you, and your
 little ones. And he comforted them, and spoke kindly to them.
50:22 And Joseph dwelt in Egypt, he, and his father's house: and
 Joseph lived a hundred and ten years.
50:23 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.
50:24 And Joseph said to his brethren, I die: and God will
 surely visit you, and bring you out of this land, to the land
 which he swore to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob.
50:25 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.
50:26 So Joseph died, [being] a hundred and ten years old: and
 they embalmed him, and he was put in a coffin in Egypt.
