Genesis 46


46:1 And Israel took his journey with all that he had, and came
 to Beer-sheba, and offered sacrifices to the God of his father
 Isaac.
46:2 And God spoke to Israel in the visions of the night, and
 said, Jacob, Jacob: and he said, Here [am] I.
46:3 And he said, I [am] God, the God of thy father: fear not to
 go down into Egypt; for I will there make of thee a great
 nation:
46:4 I will go down with thee into Egypt; and I will also surely
 bring thee up [again]: and Joseph shall put his hand upon thine
 eyes.
46:5 And Jacob rose up from Beer-sheba: and the sons of Israel
 carried Jacob their father, and their little ones, and their
 wives, in the wagons which Pharaoh had sent to carry him.
46:6 And they took their cattle, and their goods which they had
 acquired in the land of Canaan, and came into Egypt, Jacob, and
 all his seed with him:
46:7 His sons, and his sons' sons with him, his daughters, and
 his sons' daughters, and all his seed brought he with him into
 Egypt.
46:8 And these [are] the names of the children of Israel, who
 came into Egypt, Jacob and his sons: Reuben, Jacob's
 first-born.
46:9 And the sons of Reuben; Hanoch, and Phallu, and Hezron, and
 Carmi.
46:10 And the sons of Simeon; Jemuel, and Jamin, and Ohad, and

46:11 And the sons of Levi; Gershon, Kohath, and Merari.

 Shimron.
46:14 And the sons of Zebulun; Sered, and Elon, and Jahleel.

 and his daughters [were] thirty and three.
46:16 And the sons of Gad; Ziphion, and Haggai, Shuni, and
 Ezbon, Eri, and Arodi, and Areli.
46:17 And the sons of Asher; Jimnah, and Ishuah, and Isui, and
 Beriah, and Serah their sister. And the sons of Beriah; Heber,
 and Malchiel.
46:18 These [are] the sons of Zilpah, whom Laban gave to Leah
 his daughter: and these she bore to Jacob, [even] sixteen
 souls.
46:19 The sons of Rachel Jacob's wife; Joseph, and Benjamin.
46:20 And to Joseph in the land of Egypt were born Manasseh and
 Ephraim, whom Asenath the daughter of Poti-pherah priest of On
 bore to him.
46:21 And the sons of Benjamin [were] Belah, and Becher, and
 Ashbel, Gera, and Naaman, Ehi, and Rosh, Muppim, and Huppim,
 and Ard.

 all the souls [were] fourteen.
46:23 And the sons of Dan; Hushim.
46:24 And the sons of Naphtali; Jahzeel, and Guni, and Jezer,
 and Shillem.
46:25 These [are] the sons of Bilhah, whom Laban gave to Rachel
 his daughter, and she bore these to Jacob: all the souls [were]
 seven.
46:26 All the souls that came with Jacob into Egypt, who came
 out of his loins, besides Jacob's sons' wives, all the souls
 [were] sixty and six.
46:27 And the sons of Joseph who were born to him in Egypt,
 [were] two souls: all the souls of the house of Jacob, who came
 into Egypt, [were] seventy.
46:28 And he sent Judah before him to Joseph, to direct his face
 to Goshen; and they came into the land of Goshen.
46:29 And Joseph made ready his chariot, and went to meet Israel
 his father to Goshen; and presented himself to him: and he fell
 on his neck, and wept on his neck a good while.
46:30 And Israel said to Joseph, Now let me die, since I have
 seen thy face, because thou [art] yet alive.
46:31 And Joseph said to his brethren, and to his father's
 house, I will go up, and show Pharaoh, and say to him, My
 brethren, and my father's house, who [were] in the land of
 Canaan are come to me.
46:32 And the men [are] shepherds, for their employment hath
 been to feed cattle; and they have brought their flocks, and
 their herds, and all that they have.
46:33 And it shall come to pass, when Pharaoh shall call you,
 and shall say, What [is] your occupation?
46:34 That ye shall say, The occupation of thy servants hath
 been about cattle from our youth even until now, both we, [and]
 also our fathers: that ye may dwell in the land of Goshen; for
 every shepherd [is] an abomination to the Egyptians.
