CHAP. XLVIII.

1 Joseph with his sons visiteth his sick father. 2 Jacob
'strengtheneth himself to bless them. 3 He repeateth
the promise. 5 He taketh Ephrahn and Manasseh as
his own. 7 He telleth Joseph of his inother's grave.
9 He blesseth Ephraim and Manasseh. 17 He pre-
fer reth the younger before the elder. 21 He prophesieth
their return to Canaan.

AND it came to pass after these things,
that one told Joseph, Behold, thy father
is sick : and he took with him his two sons,
Manasseh and Ephraim.

2 And one told Jacob, and said, Behold,
thy son Joseph cometh unto thee : and Is-
rael strengthened himself, and sat upon the
bed.

3 And Jacob said unto Joseph, God
Almighty appeared unto me at "^Luz in the
land of Canaan, and blessed me,

4 And said unto me. Behold, I will make
thee fruitful, and multiply thee, and I will
make of thee a multitude of people ; and
will give this land to thy seed after thee, ^for
an everlasting possession.

Simeon, they shall be mine.

6 And thy issue, which thou begettest
after them, shall be thine, and shall be called
after the name of their brethren in their
inheritance.

7 And as for me, when I came from Pa-
dan, ''Rachel died by me in the land of
Canaan, in the way, when yet there was but
a little way to come unto Ephrath : and 1
buried her there in the way of Ephrath,
the same is Beth-lehem.

8 And Israel beheld Joseph's sons, and
said. Who are these ?

9 And Joseph said unto his father, ^They
are my sons, whom God hath given me in
this place. And he said, Bring them, I pray
thee, unto me, and '"I will bless them.

10 (Now ethe eyes of Israel were fdim
for age, so that he could not see :) and he
brought them near unto him ; and ''he kissed
them, and embraced them.

11 And Israel said unto Joseph, 'I had
not thought to see thy face : and lo, God
hath shewed me also thy seed.

12 And Joseph brought them out from
between his knees, and he bowed himself
with his face to the earth.

13 And Joseph took them both, Ephraim
in his right hand toward Israel's left hand,
and Manasseh in his left hand toward Is-
rael's right hand, and brought them near
unto him.

14 And Israel stretched out his right hand,
and laid it upon Ephraim's head, who was
the younger, and his left hand upon Ma-
nasseh's head, ■'guiding his hands wittingly;
for Manasseh was the first-born.

ISlTAnd'he blessed Joseph, and said, God,
■"before whom my fathers Abraham and
Isaac did walk, the God which fed me all
my life long unto this day,

16 The Angel "which redeemed me from
air evil, bless the lads ; and let " my name
be named on them, and the name of my
fathers Abraham and Isaac : and let them
t grow into a multitude in the midst of the
earth.

17 And when Joseph saw that his father
p laid his right hand upon the head of Eph-
raim, it II displeased him : and he held up his
father's hand, to remove it from Ephraim's
head unto Manasseh's head.

18 And Joseph said unto his father. Not
so, my father : for this is the first-born ; put
thy right hand upon his head.

19 And his father refused, and said, il
know it, my son, I know it : he also shall be-
come a people, and he also shall be great:
but truly "^ his younger brother shall be greater

49



Jacob blesseth his sons, and

than he, and his seed shall become a t multi-
tude of nations.

20 And he blessed them that day, saying,
"In thee shall Israel bless, saying, God make
thee as Ephraim and as Manasseh : and he
set Ephraim before Manasseh.

21 And Israel said unto Joseph, Behold,
I die; but 'God shall be with you, and bring
you again unto the land of your fathers.

22 Moreover " I have given to thee one
portion above thy brethren, which I took
out of the hand ^ of the Amorite with my
sword and with my bow.

CHAP. XLIX.

1 Jacob calleth Ms sons to bless them. 3 Their blessing

AND Jacob called unto his sons, and
said, Gather yourselves together, that
I may =" tell you that which shall befall you
'' in the last days.

2 Gather yourselves together, and hear,
ye sons of Jacob ; and " hearken unto Israel
your father.

3 ^ Reuben, thou art "^my first-born, my
might, ''and the beginning of my strength,
the excellency of dignity, and the excel-
lency of power :

4 Unstable as water, t'^thou shalt not
excel ; because thou ^wentest up to thy fa-
ther's bed ; then defiledst thou it : \\ he went
up to my couch.

5 1[ '' Simeon and Levi are ' brethren ;
[| ^ instruments of cruelty are in their habi-
tations.

6 O my soul, ' come not thou into their
secret ; ""unto their assembly, "mine honour,
be not thou united ! for "in their anger they
slew a man, and in their self-will they || digged
down a wall.

7 Cursed be their anger, for it was fierce :
and their wrath, for it was cruel : p I will
divide them in Jacob, and scatter them in
Israel.

8 IT'iJudah, thou art he whom thy bre-
thren shall praise ; ''thy h^nA shall he in the
neck of thine enemies ; nhy father's children
shall bow down before thee.

9 Judah is *a lion's whelp ; from the prey,
my son, thou art gone up : "he stooped down,
he couched as a lion, and as an old lion :
who shall rouse him up ?

10 ^The sceptre shall not depart from Ju-
dah, nor ya lawgiver ^from between his feet,
^ until Shiloh come: ''and unto him shall
the gathering of the people be.

mourning to the Egyptians : wherefore the
name of it was called || Abel-mizraim, which
is beyond Jordan.

12 And his sons did unto him accordmg

13 For ''his sons carried him into the land
of Canaan, and buried him in the cave of
the field of Machpelah, which Abraham
'bought with the field for a possession of a
burying-place of Ephron the Hittite, before
Mamre.

14 IT 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.

15 IT And when Joseph's brethren saw that
their father was dead, "they said, Joseph will
peradventure hate us, and will certainly re-
quite us all the evil which we did unto him.

16 And they f sent a messenger unto Jo-
seph, saying, Thy father did command before
he died, saying,

17 So shall ye say unto Joseph, Forgive, 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 servants of "the God of thy father. And
Joseph wept when they spake unto him.

18 And his brethren also went and pfell
down before his face : and they said. Behold,
we he thy servants.

19 And Joseph said unto them, ^Fear
not : 'for am I in the place of God?

20 'But as for you, ye thought evil
against me; hut *God meant it unto good,
to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save
much people alive.

21 Now therefore fear ye not : " I will
nourish you, and your little ones. And he
comforted them,and spakefkindly unto them.

22 H And Joseph dwelt in Egypt, he, and
his father's house : and Joseph lived an hun-
dred and ten years.

23 And Joseph saw Ephraim's children
^ of the third generation: ^the children also
of Machir, the son of Manasseh, ^were
t brought up upon Joseph's knees.

24 And Joseph said unto his brethren,
I die ; and " God will surely visit you, and
bring you out of this land, unto the land
'' which he sware to Abraham, to Isaac, and
to Jacob.

25 And "= Joseph took an oath of the
children of Israel, saying, God will surely

from hence.

26 So Joseph died, 6eiw§- an hundred
and ten years old : and they "' embalmed him,
and he was put in a coffin in Egypt.

CHAP. I.

1 The children of Israel, after Joseph's death, do multi-
ply. 8 The more they are oppressed by a new king,
the tnore they multiply. 15 The godliness of the mid-
mvesyin saving the men-children alive. 22 Pharaoh
commandeth the male-childreri to be cast into the river.

"VrOW ''these are the names of the chil-
XM dren of Israel, which came into Egypt ;
every man and his household came with
Jacob.

2 Reuben, Simeon, Levi, and Judah,

3 Issachar, Zebulun, and Benjamin,

4 Dan, and Naphtali, Gad, and Asher.

5 And all the souls that came out of the
t loins of Jacob were '' seventy souls : for
Joseph was in Egypt already.

6 And -Joseph died, and all his brethren,
and all that generation.

7 H "^And the children of Israel were fruit-
ful, and increased abundantly, and multi-
plied, and waxed exceeding mighty ; and
the land was filled with them.

8 Now there ^ arose up a new king over
Egypt, which knew not Joseph.

9 And he said unto his people. Behold,
*"the people of the children of Israel are
more and mightier than we.

10 eCome on, let us •'deal wisely with
them, lest they multiply, and it come to
pass, that, when there falleth out any war,
they join also unto our enemies, and fight
against us, and so get them up out of the
land.

11 Therefore they did set over them task-
masters, 'to afflict them with their ■'burdens.
And they built for Pharaoh treasure-cities,
Pithom, 'and Raamses.

12 t But the more they afflicted them,
the more they multiplied and grew. And
they were grieved because of the children
of Israel.

13 And the Egyptians made the children
of Israel to serve with rigour.

14 And they ■"made their lives bitter with
hard bondage, "in mortar, and in brick, and
in all manner of service in the field : all
their service wherein they made them serve
was with rigour.

16 And he said. When ye do the office
of a midwife to the Hebrew women, and
see them upon the stools ; if it he a son, then
ye shall kill him ; but if it he a daughter,
then she shall live.

17 But the midwives "feared God, and
did not Pas the king of Egypt commanded
them, but saved the men-children ahve.

18 And the king of Egypt called for the
midwives, and said unto them, Why have
ye done this thing, and have saved the men-
children alive?

19 And ithe midwives said unto Pharaoh,
Because the Hebrew women are not as the
Egyptian women; for they are lively, and
are delivered ere the midwives come in unto
them.

20 'Therefore God dealt well with the
midwives : and the people multiplied, and
waxed very mighty,

21 And it came to pass, because the
midwives feared God, *that he made them
houses.

22 And Pharaoh charged all his people,
saying, 'Every son that is born ye shall cast
into the river, and every daughter ye shall
save alive.

the Israelites'' cry.

AND there went a "man of the house of
Levi, and took to wife a daughter of
Levi.

2 And the woman conceived and bare
a son: and '■when she saw him that he
was a goodly child, she hid him three
months.

3 And when she could not longer hide
him, she took for him an ark of bulrushes,
and daubed it with slime and with pitch,
and put the child therein ; and she laid it in
the flags by the river^s brink.

4 "And his sister stood afar off, to wit
what would be done to him.

Moses slayeth an Egyptian.

5 IT And the ^daughter of Pharaoh came
down to wash herself at the river ; and her
maidens walked along by the river's side:
and when she saw the ark among the flags,
she sent her maid to fetch it.

6 And when she had opened it, she saw
the child : and behold, the babe wept. And
she had compassion on him, and said, This
is one of the Hebrews' children.

7 Then said his sister to Pharaoh's daugh-
ter, Shall I go, and call to thee a nurse of the
Hebrew women, that she may nurse the
child for thee ?

8 And Pharaoh's daughter said to her.
Go. And the maid went and called the
child's mother.

. 9 And Pharaoh's daughter said unto her.
Take this child away and nurse it for me
and I will give thee thy wages. And the
woman took the child and nursed it.

10 And the child grew, and she brought
him unto Pharaoh's daughter, and .he be-
came ^her son. And she called his name
II Moses : and she said. Because I drew him
out of the water.

11 IT And it came to pass in those days,
^when Moses was grown, that he went out
unto his brethren, and looked on their ^ bur-
dens : and he spied an Egyptian smiting an
Hebrew, one of his brethren.

12 And he looked this way and that way,
and when he saw that there was no man,
he ''slew the Egyptian, and hid him in the
sand.

13 And 'when he went out the second day,
behold, two men of the Hebrews strove toge-
ther : and he said to him that did the wrong.
Wherefore smitest thou thy fellow ?

14 And he said, ^ Who made thee t a.
prince and a judge over us ? intendest thou
to kill me, as thou killedst the Egyptian ?
And Moses feared, and said. Surely this
thing is known.

15 Now when Pharaoh heard this thing,
he sought to slay Moses. But 'Moses fled
from the face of Pharaoh, and dwelt in the
land of Midian : and he sat down by ""a
well.

16 "-Novp^ the II priest of Midian had
seven daughters : °and they came and drew
water, and filled the troughs to water their
father's flock.

17 And the shepherds came and drove
them away : but Moses stood up and helped
them, and p watered their flock.

18 And when they came to, "jReuel their
father, he said, How is it that ye are come
so soon to-day ?

19 And they said, An Egyptian delivered
us out of the hand of the shepherds, and
