Genesis 50:1-6 (Good News Translation)

View In My Bible
1 Joseph threw himself on his father, crying and kissing his face. 2 Then Joseph gave orders to embalm his father's body. 3 It took forty days, the normal time for embalming. The Egyptians mourned for him seventy days. 4 When the time of mourning was over, Joseph said to the king's officials, "Please take this message to the king: 5 "When my father was about to die, he made me promise him that I would bury him in the tomb which he had prepared in the land of Canaan. So please let me go and bury my father, and then I will come back.' " 1 6 The king answered, "Go and bury your father, as you promised you would."
