Genesis 46:26-34

GNTA 26 The total number of the direct descendants of Jacob who went to Egypt was sixty-six, not including his sons' wives. NIV 26 All those who went to Egypt with Jacob—those who were his direct descendants, not counting his sons’ wives—numbered sixty-six persons. GNTA 27 Two sons were born to Joseph in Egypt, bringing to seventy the total number of Jacob's family who went there. NIV 27 With the two sons who had been born to Joseph in Egypt, the members of Jacob’s family, which went to Egypt, were seventy in all. GNTA 28 Jacob sent Judah ahead to ask Joseph to meet them in Goshen. When they arrived, NIV 28 Now Jacob sent Judah ahead of him to Joseph to get directions to Goshen. When they arrived in the region of Goshen, GNTA 29 Joseph got in his chariot and went to Goshen to meet his father. When they met, Joseph threw his arms around his father's neck and cried for a long time. NIV 29 Joseph had his chariot made ready and went to Goshen to meet his father Israel. As soon as Joseph appeared before him, he threw his arms around his father and wept for a long time. GNTA 30 Jacob said to Joseph, "I am ready to die, now that I have seen you and know that you are still alive." NIV 30 Israel said to Joseph, “Now I am ready to die, since I have seen for myself that you are still alive.” GNTA 31 Then Joseph said to his brothers and the rest of his father's family, "I must go and tell the king that my brothers and all my father's family, who were living in Canaan, have come to me. NIV 31 Then Joseph said to his brothers and to his father’s household, “I will go up and speak to Pharaoh and will say to him, ‘My brothers and my father’s household, who were living in the land of Canaan, have come to me. GNTA 32 I will tell him that you are shepherds and take care of livestock and that you have brought your flocks and herds and everything else that belongs to you. NIV 32 The men are shepherds; they tend livestock, and they have brought along their flocks and herds and everything they own.’ GNTA 33 When the king calls for you and asks what your occupation is, NIV 33 When Pharaoh calls you in and asks, ‘What is your occupation?’ GNTA 34 be sure to tell him that you have taken care of livestock all your lives, just as your ancestors did. In this way he will let you live in the region of Goshen." Joseph said this because Egyptians will have nothing to do with shepherds. NIV 34 you should answer, ‘Your servants have tended livestock from our boyhood on, just as our fathers did.’ Then you will be allowed to settle in the region of Goshen, for all shepherds are detestable to the Egyptians.”
