B'resheet (Gen) 46

1Isra’el took everything he owned with him on his journey. He arrived at Be’er-Sheva and offered sacrifices to the God of his father Yitz’chak. 2In a vision at night God called to Isra’el, “Ya‘akov! Ya‘akov!” He answered, “Here I am.” 3He said, “I am God, the God of your father. Don’t be afraid to go down to Egypt. It is there that I will make you into a great nation. 4Not only will I go down with you to Egypt; but I will also bring you back here again, after Yosef has closed your eyes.”
5So Ya‘akov left Be’er-Sheva; the sons of Isra’el brought Ya‘akov their father, their little ones and their wives in the wagons Pharaoh had sent to carry them. 6They took their cattle and their possessions which they had acquired in the land of Kena‘an and arrived in Egypt, Ya‘akov and all his descendants with him — 7his sons, grandsons, daughters, granddaughters and all his descendants he brought with him into Egypt.
8These are the names of Isra’el’s children who came into Egypt, Ya‘akov and his sons: Re’uven Ya‘akov’s firstborn; 9and the sons of Re’uven — Hanokh, Pallu, Hetzron and Karmi.
10The sons of Shim‘on: Y’mu’el, Yamin, Ohad, Yakhin, Tzochar and Sha’ul the son of a Kena‘ani woman.
11The sons of Levi: Gershon, K’hat and M’rari.
12The sons of Y’hudah: ‘Er, Onan, Shelah, Peretz and Zerach; but ‘Er and Onan died in the land of Kena‘an. The sons of Peretz were Hetzron and Hamul.
13The sons of Yissakhar: Tola, Puvah, Yov and Shimron.
14The sons of Z’vulun: Sered, Elon and Yachle’el.
15These were the children of Le’ah whom she bore to Ya‘akov in Paddan-Aram, with his daughter Dinah. In sum, his sons and daughters numbered thirty-three.
16The sons of Gad: Tzifyon, Haggi, Shuni, Etzbon, ‘Eri, Arodi and Ar’eli.
17The children of Asher: Yimnah, Yishvah, Yishvi, B’ri‘ah, and their sister Serach. The sons of B’ri‘ah were Hever and Malki’el.
18These were the children of Zilpah, whom Lavan gave to Le’ah his daughter; she bore them to Ya‘akov — sixteen people.
19The sons of Rachel Ya‘akov’s wife: Yosef and Binyamin.
20To Yosef in the land of Egypt were born M’nasheh and Efrayim, whom Osnat the daughter of Poti-Fera priest of On bore to him.
21The sons of Binyamin: Bela, Bekher, Ashbel, Gera, Na‘aman, Echi, Rosh, Mupim, Hupim and Ard.
22These were the children of Rachel who were born to Ya‘akov — in sum, fourteen people.
23The sons of Dan: Hushim.
24The sons of Naftali: Yachtze’el, Guni, Yetzer and Shillem.
25These were the sons of Bilhah, whom Lavan gave to Rachel his daughter; she bore them to Ya‘akov — in sum, seven people.
26All the people belonging to Ya‘akov coming into Egypt, his direct descendants (not counting Ya‘akov’s sons’ wives), totaled sixty-six. 27The sons of Yosef, born to him in Egypt, were two in number. Thus all the people in Ya‘akov’s family who entered Egypt numbered seventy.
(vi) 28Ya‘akov sent Y’hudah ahead of him to Yosef, so that the latter might guide him on the road to Goshen; thus they arrived in the land of Goshen. 29Yosef prepared his chariot and went up to Goshen to meet Isra’el his father. He presented himself to him, embraced him and wept on his neck for a long time. 30Then Isra’el said to Yosef, “Now I can die, because I have seen your face and seen that you are still alive.”
31Yosef said to his brothers and his father’s family, “I’m going up to tell Pharaoh. I’ll say to him, ‘My brothers and my father’s family, who were in the land of Kena‘an, have come to me. 32The men are shepherds and keepers of livestock; they have brought their flocks, their herds and all their possessions.’ 33Now when Pharaoh summons you and asks, ‘What is your occupation?’ 34tell him, ‘Your servants have been keepers of livestock from our youth until now, both we and our ancestors.’ This will ensure that you will live in the land of Goshen — for any shepherd is abhorrent to the Egyptians.”

Joseph Brings His Family to Egypt
1So Israel took his journey with all that he had and came to #ch. 21:31, 33; 26:33; 28:10 Beersheba, and offered sacrifices #ch. 26:24, 25; 28:13; 31:42to the God of his father Isaac. 2And God spoke to Israel #ch. 15:1; Job 33:14, 15in visions of the night and said, “Jacob, Jacob.” And he said, “Here I am.” 3Then he said, “I am God, #ch. 28:13 the God of your father. Do not be afraid to go down to Egypt, for there I will #ch. 35:11; [ch. 12:2; Ex. 1:7, 9; Deut. 26:5]make you into a great nation. 4I myself will go down with you to Egypt, and I will also #ch. 15:16; 28:15; 48:21; 50:24; Ex. 3:8 bring you up again, and #ch. 50:1Joseph’s hand shall close your eyes.”

Jacob and Joseph Reunited
28He had sent Judah ahead of him to Joseph to show the way before him in Goshen, and they came #See ch. 45:10into the land of Goshen. 29Then Joseph prepared his chariot and went up to meet Israel his father in Goshen. He presented himself to him and #[ch. 45:14]fell on his neck and wept on his neck a good while. 30Israel said to Joseph, #[Luke 2:29, 30]“Now let me die, since I have seen your face and know that you are still alive.” 31Joseph said to his brothers and to his father’s household, #ch. 47:1“I will go up and tell Pharaoh and will say to him, ‘My brothers and my father’s household, who were in the land of Canaan, have come to me. 32#ch. 47:3And the men are shepherds, for they have been keepers of livestock, and they have brought their flocks and their herds and all that they have.’ 33When Pharaoh calls you and says, #[See ver. 32 above]‘What is your occupation?’ 34you shall say, #[See ver. 32 above] ‘Your servants have been keepers of livestock #ch. 37:12 from our youth even until now, both we and our fathers,’ in order that you may dwell #ver. 28 in the land of Goshen, for every shepherd is #ch. 43:32; Ex. 8:26an abomination to the Egyptians.”
