View In My Bible
18 His brothers then came and threw themselves down before him.1 "We are your slaves,"2 they said. 19 But Joseph said to them, "Don't be afraid. Am I in the place of God?3 20 You intended to harm me,4 but God intended5 it for good6 to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.7 21 So then, don't be afraid. I will provide for you and your children.8" And he reassured them and spoke kindly9 to them.

The Death of Joseph

22 Joseph stayed in Egypt, along with all his father's family. He lived a hundred and ten years10 23 and saw the third generation11 of Ephraim's12 children.13 Also the children of Makir14 son of Manasseh15 were placed at birth on Joseph's knees.a16 24 Then Joseph said to his brothers, "I am about to die.17 But God will surely come to your aid18 and take you up out of this land to the land19 he promised on oath to Abraham,20 Isaac21 and Jacob."22 25 And Joseph made the sons of Israel swear an oath23 and said, "God will surely come to your aid, and then you must carry my bones24 up from this place."25 26 So Joseph died26 at the age of a hundred and ten.27 And after they embalmed him,28 he was placed in a coffin in Egypt.
