Genesis 50:15-26 (Douay-Rheims)

View In My Bible
15 Now he being dead, his brethren were afraid, and talked one with another: Lest perhaps he should remember the wrong he suffered, and requite us all the evil that we did to him. 16 And they sent a message to him, saying: Thy father commanded us before he died, 17 That we should say thus much to thee from him: I beseech thee to forget the wickedness of thy brethren, and the sin and malice they practised against thee: we also pray thee, to forgive the servants of the God of thy father this wickedness. And when Joseph heard this, he wept. 18 And his brethren came to him; and worshipping prostrate on the ground, they said: We are thy servants. 19 And he answered them: Fear not: can we resist the will of God? 20 You thought evil against me: but God turned it into good, that he might exalt me, as at present you see, and might save many people. 21 Fear not: I will feed you and your children. And he comforted them, and spoke gently and mildly. 22 And he dwelt in Egypt with all his father’s house; and lived a hundred and ten years. 23 (50-22) And he saw the children of Ephraim to the third generation. The children also of Machir, the sons of Manasses, were born on Joseph’s knees. 24 (50-23) After which he told his brethren: God will visit you after my death, and will make you go up out of this land, to the land which he swore to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. 25 (50-24) And he made them swear to him, saying: God will visit you, carry my bones with you out of this place: 26 (50-25) And he died, being a hundred and ten years old. And being embalmed, he was laid in a coffin in Egypt.
