When Yosef's brothers saw that their father was dead, they said, "It may be that Yosef will hate us, and will fully pay us back for all of the evil which we did to him.
They sent a message to Yosef, saying, "Your father commanded before he died, saying,
"So will you tell Yosef, 'Now please forgive the disobedience of your brothers, and their sin, because they did evil to you.' Now, please forgive the disobedience of the servants of the God of your father." Yosef wept when they spoke to him.
His brothers also went and fell down before his face; and they said, "Behold, we are your servants."
Yosef said to them, "Don't be afraid, for am I in the place of God?
As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save many people alive.
Now therefore don't be afraid. I will nourish you and your little ones." He comforted them, and spoke kindly to them.
Yosef lived in Mitzrayim, he, and his father's house. Yosef lived one hundred ten years.
Yosef saw Efrayim's children to the third generation. The children also of Makhir, the son of Menashsheh, were born on Yosef's knees.
Yosef said to his brothers, "I am dying, but God will surely visit you, and bring you up out of this land to the land which he swore to Avraham, to Yitzchak, and to Ya`akov."
Yosef took an oath of the children of Yisra'el, saying, "God will surely visit you, and you shall carry up my bones from here."
So Yosef died, being one hundred ten years old, and they embalmed him, and he was put in a coffin in Mitzrayim.
