Genesis 46 ©
Jacob, going down to Egypt with all his family and substance, is strengthened of God at Beer-sheba, by renewing of the promises, vs. 1, etc. He comes into Egypt with all his own, whose names are recounted, 6. He sends Judah before him unto Joseph, who goes to meet him in Goshen, where they receive one another with much affection, 28. Joseph communes with his brethren what he shall intimate to Pharaoh, and what they, coming before him, shall have to say, 31.
AND Israel 1took his journey with all that he had, and came to 2Beer-sheba, and offered sacrifices 3unto the God of his father Isaac.
And God spake unto Israel 4in the visions of the night, and said, 5Jacob, Jacob. And he said, 6Here am I.
And he said, Iaam God, the God of thy father: 7fear not to go down into Egypt; forb I will there make of thee a great nation:
Ic will 8go down with thee into Egypt; and 9I will also surely bring thee up again: 10and Joseph shall put his hand upon thine eyes.

And Israel said unto Joseph, 43Now let me die, since I have seen thy face, 44because thou art yet alive.
And Joseph said unto his brethren, and unto his father's house, I will go up, and shew Pharaoh, and say unto him, My brethren, and my father's house, which were in the land of Canaan, are come unto me;
And the men are shepherds, for their 45trade hath been to feed cattle; and they have brought their flocks, and their herds, and all that they have.
And it shall come to pass, when Pharaoh shall call you, and shall say, What is your occupation?
That ye shall say, Thy servants' trade 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; forr every shepherd is 46an abomination unto the Egyptians.
