Genesis 50:1-6 GNT

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
