Genesis 50 ©
The mourning for Jacob. Joseph getteth leave of Pharaoh to go to bury him. The funeral. Joseph returneth to Egypt with his brethren. They appeal to him for pardon of the wrong they had done him; he comforteth them. His age: he seeth the third generation of his sons, he prophesieth unto his brethren of their return, and taketh an oath of them concerning his bones. He dieth, and is put into a coffin.
And forty days were fulfilled for him; for so are fulfilled the days of those which are embalmed: and the Egyptians 1mourned for him threescore and ten days.
And when the days of his mourning were past, Joseph cspake unto the house of Pharaoh, saying, If now I have dfound grace in your eyes, speak, I pray you, in the ears of Pharaoh, saying,
My efather made me swear, saying, Lo, I die: in my grave which I have fdigged for me in the land of Canaan, there shalt thou gbury me. Now therefore let me go up, I pray thee, and bury my father, and I will come again.
And Pharaoh said, Go up, and bury thy father, according as he made thee swear.
¶And Joseph went up to bury his father: and with him went up all the servants of Pharaoh, the elders of his house, and all the elders of the land of Egypt,
And all the house of Joseph, and his brethren, and his father's house: only their little ones, and their flocks, and their herds, they left hin the land of Goshen.
And there went up with him both chariots and horsemen: and it was a very great company.
¶And Joseph returned into Egypt, he, and his brethren, and all that went up with him to bury his father, after he had buried his father.
And they 3sent a messenger unto Joseph, saying, Thy father did command before he died, saying,
So shall ye say unto Joseph, pForgive, I pray thee now, the *trespass of thy brethren, and their sin; for they did unto thee evil: and now, we pray thee, forgive the trespass of the qservants of the God of thy father. And Joseph wept when they spake unto him.
¶And Joseph dwelt in Egypt, he, and his father's house: and Joseph lived an hundred and ten years.
And Joseph said unto his brethren, xI die: and yGod will surely visit you, and bring you out of this land unto the land which he zsware to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob.
So Joseph died, being an hundred and ten years old: and they bembalmed him, and he was put in a coffin in Egypt.
