Genesis 50:15-25

GNT 15 After the death of their father, Joseph's brothers said, "What if Joseph still hates us and plans to pay us back for all the harm we did to him?" NIV 15 When Joseph’s brothers saw that their father was dead, they said, “What if Joseph holds a grudge against us and pays us back for all the wrongs we did to him?” GNT 16 So they sent a message to Joseph: "Before our father died, NIV 16 So they sent word to Joseph, saying, “Your father left these instructions before he died: GNT 17 he told us to ask you, "Please forgive the crime your brothers committed when they wronged you.' Now please forgive us the wrong that we, the servants of your father's God, have done." Joseph cried when he received this message. NIV 17 ‘This is what you are to say to Joseph: I ask you to forgive your brothers the sins and the wrongs they committed in treating you so badly.’ Now please forgive the sins of the servants of the God of your father.” When their message came to him, Joseph wept. GNT 18 Then his brothers themselves came and bowed down before him. "Here we are before you as your slaves," they said. NIV 18 His brothers then came and threw themselves down before him. “We are your slaves,” they said. GNT 19 But Joseph said to them, "Don't be afraid; I can't put myself in the place of God. NIV 19 But Joseph said to them, “Don’t be afraid. Am I in the place of God? GNT 20 You plotted evil against me, but God turned it into good, in order to preserve the lives of many people who are alive today because of what happened. NIV 20 You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives. GNT 21 You have nothing to fear. I will take care of you and your children." So he reassured them with kind words that touched their hearts. NIV 21 So then, don’t be afraid. I will provide for you and your children.” And he reassured them and spoke kindly to them. GNT 22 Joseph continued to live in Egypt with his father's family; he was a hundred and ten years old when he died. NIV 22 Joseph stayed in Egypt, along with all his father’s family. He lived a hundred and ten years GNT 23 He lived to see Ephraim's children and grandchildren. He also lived to receive the children of Machir son of Manasseh into the family. NIV 23 and saw the third generation of Ephraim’s children. Also the children of Makir son of Manasseh were placed at birth on Joseph’s knees. GNT 24 He said to his brothers, "I am about to die, but God will certainly take care of you and lead you out of this land to the land he solemnly promised to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob." NIV 24 Then Joseph said to his brothers, “I am about to die. But God will surely come to your aid and take you up out of this land to the land he promised on oath to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.” GNT 25 Then Joseph asked his people to make a vow. "Promise me," he said, "that when God leads you to that land, you will take my body with you." NIV 25 And Joseph made the Israelites swear an oath and said, “God will surely come to your aid, and then you must carry my bones up from this place.”
