Genesis 46

1 And Yisrael took his journey with all that he had, and came to Beer-Sheva, and offered sacrifices unto the God (Elohim) of his father Isaac (Yitschaq).

2 And God (Elohim) spake unto Yisrael in the visions of the night, and said, “Jacob (Yaaqov), Jacob (Yaaqov).” And he said, “Here am I.”

3 And He said, “I am the 5aMighty One (El), God (Elohim) of your father; fear not to go down into Egypt (Mitsrayim), for I will there make of you a great nation;

4 I will go down with you into Egypt (Mitsrayim); and I will also surely bring you up again; and Joseph (Yosef) shall put his hand upon your eyes.”

5 And Jacob (Yaaqov) rose up from Beer-Sheva; and the sons of Yisrael carried Jacob (Yaaqov) their father, and their little ones, and their wives, in the wagons which Pharaoh (Paroh) had sent to carry him.

6 And they took their cattle, and their goods, which they had gotten in the land of Canaan, and came into Egypt (Mitsrayim), Jacob (Yaaqov), and all his seed with him.

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 (Mitsrayim).

8 And these are the names of the children of Yisrael, which came into Egypt (Mitsrayim), Jacob (Yaaqov) and his sons: Reuven, Jacob (Yaaqov)’s firstborn.

9 And the sons of Reuven: Hanoch, and Phallu, and Hezron, and Carmi.

10 And the sons of Shimon: Yemuel, and Yamin, and Ohad, and Yakhin, and Zohar, and Shaul the son of a Canaanitish woman.

11 And the sons of Lewi: Gershon, Kohath, and Merari.

12 And the sons of Judah (Yehudah): Er, and Onan, and Shelah, and Pharez, and Zerah; but Er and Onan died in the land of Canaan. And the sons of Pharez were Hezron and Hamul.

13 And the sons of Yissaskhar: Tola, and Phuvah, and Job (Iyyov), and Shimron.

14 And the sons of Zevulun: Sered, and Elon, and Yahleel.

15 These be the sons of Leah, which she bare unto Jacob (Yaaqov) in Padanaram, with his daughter Dinah; all the souls of his sons and his daughters were thirty-three.

16 And the sons of Gad: Ziphion, and Haggi, Shuni, and Ezbon, Eri, and Arodi, and Areli.

17 And the sons of Asher: Yimnah, and Ishuah, and Isui, and Beriyah, and Serah their sister: and the sons of Beriyah: Heber, and Malchiel.

18 These are the sons of Zilpah, whom Lavan gave to Leah his daughter, and these she bare unto Jacob (Yaaqov), even sixteen souls.

19 The sons of Rachel Jacob (Yaaqov)’s wife: Joseph (Yosef), and Binyamin.

20 And unto Joseph (Yosef) in the land of Egypt (Mitsrayim) were born N26Menashsheh and N27Efrayim, which Asenath the daughter of Potipherah priest (kohen) of On bare unto him.

21 And the sons of Binyamin were Belah, and Becher, and Ashbel, Gera, and Naaman, Ehi, and Rosh, Muppim, and Huppim, and Ard.

22 These are the sons of Rachel, which were born to Jacob (Yaaqov); all the souls were fourteen.

23 And the sons of Dan: Hushim.

24 And the sons of Naftali: Yahzeel, and Guni, and Yezer, and Shillem.

25 These are the sons of Bilhah, which Lavan gave unto Rachel his daughter, and she bare these unto Jacob (Yaaqov); all the souls were seven.

26 All the souls that came with Jacob (Yaaqov) into Egypt (Mitsrayim), which came out of his loins, besides Jacob (Yaaqov)’s sons’ wives, all the souls were threescore and six.

27 And the sons of Joseph (Yosef), which were born him in Egypt (Mitsrayim), were two souls; all the souls of the house of Jacob (Yaaqov), which came into Egypt (Mitsrayim), were threescore and ten.

28 And he sent Judah (Yehudah) before him unto Joseph (Yosef), to direct his face unto Goshen; and they came into the land of Goshen.

29 And Joseph (Yosef) made ready his chariot, and went up to meet Yisrael his father, to Goshen, and presented himself unto him; and he fell on his neck, and wept on his neck a good while.

30 And Yisrael said unto Joseph (Yosef), “Now let me die, since I have seen your face, because you are yet alive.”

31 And Joseph (Yosef) said unto his brethren, and unto his father’s house, “I will go up, and shew Pharaoh (Paroh), and say unto him, ‘My brethren, and my father’s house, who were in the land of Canaan, are come unto me;

32 And the men are shepherds, for their trade hath been to feed cattle; and they have brought their flocks, and their herds, and all that they have.’

33 And it shall come to pass, when Pharaoh (Paroh) shall call you, and shall say, ‘What is your occupation?’

34 That you shall say, ‘Your servants’ trade hath been about cattle from our youth even until now, both we, and also our fathers,’ that you may dwell in the land of Goshen; for every shepherd is an abomination unto the Egyptians (Mitsrayim).”
