View In My Bible
15 And the brethren of Joseph see that their father is dead, and say, `Peradventure Joseph doth hate us, and doth certainly return to us all the evil which we did with him.' 16 And they give a charge for Joseph, saying, `Thy father commanded before his death, saying, 17 Thus ye do say to Joseph, I pray thee, bear, I pray thee, with the transgression of thy brethren, and their sin, for they have done thee evil; and now, bear, we pray thee, with the transgression of the servants of the God of thy father;' and Joseph weepeth in their speaking unto him. 18 And his brethren also go and fall before him, and say, `Lo, we [are] to thee for servants.' 19 And Joseph saith unto them, `Fear not, for [am] I in the place of God? 20 As for you, ye devised against me evil -- God devised it for good, in order to do as [at] this day, to keep alive a numerous people; 21 and now, fear not: I do nourish you and your infants;' and he comforteth them, and speaketh unto their heart. 22 And Joseph dwelleth in Egypt, he and the house of his father, and Joseph liveth a hundred and ten years, 23 and Joseph looketh on Ephraim's sons of the third [generation]; sons also of Machir, son of Manasseh, have been born on the knees of Joseph. 24 And Joseph saith unto his brethren, `I am dying, and God doth certainly inspect you, and hath caused you to go up from this land, unto the land which He hath sworn to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob.' 25 And Joseph causeth the sons of Israel to swear, saying, `God doth certainly inspect you, and ye have brought up my bones from this [place].' 26 And Joseph dieth, a son of an hundred and ten years, and they embalm him, and he is put into a coffin in Egypt.
