These are the names of the sons of Israel1 who went to Egypt with Jacob, each with his family:
Reuben, Simeon, Levi and Judah;
Issachar, Zebulun and Benjamin;
Dan and Naphtali; Gad and Asher.25
The descendants of Jacob numbered seventya in all;3 Joseph was already in Egypt.
Now Joseph and all his brothers and all that generation died,47
but the Israelites were exceedingly fruitful; they multiplied greatly, increased in numbers5 and became so numerous that the land was filled with them.
