Genesis 46:24-34 (English Standard Version)

View In My Bible
24 1The sons of Naphtali: Jahzeel, Guni, Jezer, and Shillem. 25 2These are the sons of Bilhah, 3whom Laban gave to Rachel his daughter, and these she bore to Jacob--seven persons in all. 26 All the persons belonging to Jacob who came into Egypt, who were his own descendants, not including Jacob's sons' wives, were sixty-six persons in all. 27 And the sons of Joseph, who were born to him in Egypt, were two. 4All the persons of the house of Jacob who came into Egypt were seventy.

Jacob and Joseph Reunited

28 He had sent Judah ahead of him to Joseph to show the way before him in Goshen, and they came 5into the land of Goshen. 29 Then Joseph prepared his chariot and went up to meet Israel his father in Goshen. He presented himself to him and 6fell on his neck and wept on his neck a good while. 30 Israel said to Joseph, 7"Now let me die, since I have seen your face and know that you are still alive." 31 Joseph said to his brothers and to his father's household, 8"I will go up and tell Pharaoh and will say to him, 'My brothers and my father's household, who were in the land of Canaan, have come to me. 32 9And the men are shepherds, for they have been keepers of livestock, and they have brought their flocks and their herds and all that they have.' 33 When Pharaoh calls you and says, 10'What is your occupation?' 34 you shall say, 11'Your servants have been keepers of livestock 12from our youth even until now, both we and our fathers,' in order that you may dwell 13in the land of Goshen, for every shepherd is 14an abomination to the Egyptians."
