NRS 1 Then Joseph threw himself on his father's face and wept over him and kissed him. CEB 1 Joseph fell across his father's body, wept over him, and kissed him. NRS 2 Joseph commanded the physicians in his service to embalm his father. So the physicians embalmed Israel; CEB 2 Joseph then ordered the physicians in his service to embalm his father, and the physicians embalmed Israel. NRS 3 they spent forty days in doing this, for that is the time required for embalming. And the Egyptians wept for him seventy days. CEB 3 They mourned for him forty days because that is the period required for embalming. Then the Egyptians mourned him for seventy days. NRS 4 When the days of weeping for him were past, Joseph addressed the household of Pharaoh, "If now I have found favor with you, please speak to Pharaoh as follows: CEB 4 After the period of mourning had passed, Joseph spoke to Pharaoh's household: "If you approve my request, give Pharaoh this message: NRS 5 My father made me swear an oath; he said, "I am about to die. In the tomb that I hewed out for myself in the land of Canaan, there you shall bury me.' Now therefore let me go up, so that I may bury my father; then I will return." CEB 5 My father made me promise, telling me, ‘I'm about to die. You must bury me in the tomb I dug for myself in the land of Canaan.' Now, let me leave and let me bury my father, and then I will return." NRS 6 Pharaoh answered, "Go up, and bury your father, as he made you swear to do." CEB 6 Pharaoh replied, "Go, bury your father as you promised." NRS 7 So Joseph went up to bury his father. With him went up all the servants of Pharaoh, the elders of his household, and all the elders of the land of Egypt, CEB 7 So Joseph left to bury his father. All of Pharaoh's servants went with him, together with the elder statesmen in his household and all of the elder statesmen in the land of Egypt, NRS 8 as well as all the household of Joseph, his brothers, and his father's household. Only their children, their flocks, and their herds were left in the land of Goshen. CEB 8 Joseph's entire household, his brothers, and his father's household. Only the children, flocks, and cattle remained in the land of Goshen. NRS 9 Both chariots and charioteers went up with him. It was a very great company. CEB 9 Even chariots and horsemen went with him; it was a huge collection of people. NRS 10 When they came to the threshing floor of Atad, which is beyond the Jordan, they held there a very great and sorrowful lamentation; and he observed a time of mourning for his father seven days. CEB 10 When they arrived at the threshing floor of Atad on the other side of the Jordan River, they observed a solemn, deeply sorrowful period of mourning. He grieved seven days for his father. NRS 11 When the Canaanite inhabitants of the land saw the mourning on the threshing floor of Atad, they said, "This is a grievous mourning on the part of the Egyptians." Therefore the place was named Abel-mizraim; it is beyond the Jordan. CEB 11 When the Canaanites who lived in the land saw the observance of grief on Atad's threshing floor, they said, "This is a solemn observance of grief by the Egyptians." Therefore, its name is Abel-mizraim. It is on the other side of the Jordan River. NRS 12 Thus his sons did for him as he had instructed them. CEB 12 Israel's sons did for him just as he had ordered. NRS 13 They carried him to the land of Canaan and buried him in the cave of the field at Machpelah, the field near Mamre, which Abraham bought as a burial site from Ephron the Hittite. CEB 13 His sons carried him to the land of Canaan and buried him in the cave in the field of Machpelah near Mamre, which Abraham had purchased as burial property from Ephron the Hittite. NRS 14 After he had buried his father, Joseph returned to Egypt with his brothers and all who had gone up with him to bury his father. CEB 14 Then Joseph returned to Egypt, he, his brothers, and everyone who left with him to bury his father. NRS 15 Realizing that their father was dead, Joseph's brothers said, "What if Joseph still bears a grudge against us and pays us back in full for all the wrong that we did to him?" CEB 15 When Joseph's brothers realized that their father was now dead, they said, "What if Joseph bears a grudge against us, and wants to pay us back seriously for all of the terrible things we did to him?" NRS 16 So they approached Joseph, saying, "Your father gave this instruction before he died, CEB 16 So they approached Joseph and said, "Your father gave orders before he died, telling us, NRS 17 "Say to Joseph: I beg you, forgive the crime of your brothers and the wrong they did in harming you.' Now therefore please forgive the crime of the servants of the God of your father." Joseph wept when they spoke to him. CEB 17 ‘This is what you should say to Joseph. 'Please, forgive your brothers' sins and misdeeds, for they did terrible things to you. Now, please forgive the sins of the servants of your father's God.''" Joseph wept when they spoke to him. NRS 18 Then his brothers also wept, fell down before him, and said, "We are here as your slaves." CEB 18 His brothers wept too, fell down in front of him, and said, "We're here as your slaves." NRS 19 But Joseph said to them, "Do not be afraid! Am I in the place of God? CEB 19 But Joseph said to them, "Don't be afraid. Am I God? NRS 20 Even though you intended to do harm to me, God intended it for good, in order to preserve a numerous people, as he is doing today. CEB 20 You planned something bad for me, but God produced something good from it, in order to save the lives of many people, just as he's doing today. NRS 21 So have no fear; I myself will provide for you and your little ones." In this way he reassured them, speaking kindly to them. CEB 21 Now, don't be afraid. I will take care of you and your children." So he put them at ease and spoke reassuringly to them. NRS 22 So Joseph remained in Egypt, he and his father's household; and Joseph lived one hundred ten years. CEB 22 Thus Joseph lived in Egypt, he and his father's household. Joseph lived 110 years NRS 23 Joseph saw Ephraim's children of the third generation; the children of Machir son of Manasseh were also born on Joseph's knees. CEB 23 and saw Ephraim's grandchildren. The children of Machir, Manasseh's son, were also born on Joseph's knees. NRS 24 Then Joseph said to his brothers, "I am about to die; but God will surely come to you, and bring you up out of this land to the land that he swore to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob." CEB 24 Joseph said to his brothers, "I'm about to die. God will certainly take care of you and bring you out of this land to the land he promised to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob." NRS 25 So Joseph made the Israelites swear, saying, "When God comes to you, you shall carry up my bones from here." CEB 25 Joseph made Israel's sons promise, "When God takes care of you, you must bring up my bones out of here." NRS 26 And Joseph died, being one hundred ten years old; he was embalmed and placed in a coffin in Egypt. CEB 26 Joseph died when he was 110 years old. They embalmed him and placed him in a coffin in Egypt.
