Genesis 46

46
1So Israel left for Egypt with everything he had. When he arrived at Beersheba he offered sacrifices to the God of his father Isaac. 2During the night God spoke to Israel in a vision. “Jacob! Jacob!” he called.
“I'm here,” he replied.
3“I am God, the God of your father! Don't be afraid to go to Egypt, because I will turn you and your descendants#46:3. “And your descendants”: supplied for clarity. into a great nation. 4I will go to Egypt with you, and I promise to bring you back again. And Joseph will personally close your eyes when you die.”
5Then Jacob left Beersheba. His sons took him, their children, and their wives to Egypt using the wagons Pharaoh had sent. 6They also took with them all their livestock and all the personal belongings they had accumulated in the country of Canaan.
So Jacob and everyone in his extended family went to Egypt, 7including all his sons and grandsons, daughters and granddaughters.
8The following is the genealogy of Israel and his sons who went to Egypt: Reuben, Jacob's firstborn.
9The sons of Reuben: Hanoch, Pallu, Hezron, and Carmi.
10The sons of Simeon: Jemuel, Jamin, Ohad, Jachin, Zohar, and Shaul the son of a woman from Canaan.
11The sons of Levi: Gershon, Kohath, and Merari.
12The sons of Judah: Er, Onan, Shelah, Perez, and Zerah. However, Er and Onan died in Canaan.
The sons of Perez: Hezron and Hamul.
13The sons of Issachar: Tola, Puvah, Job,#46:13. “Job” is given as “Jashub” in Numbers 26:24 and 1 Chronicles 7:1. and Shimron.
14The sons of Zebulun: Sered, Elon, and Jahleel.
15These are the sons Leah had for Jacob in Paddan-aram, as well as his daughter Dinah. The total number of sons and daughters and grandchildren was thirty-three.
16The sons of Gad: Ziphion, Haggi, Shuni, Ezbon, Eri, Arodi, and Areli.
17The sons of Asher: Imnah, Ishvah, Ishvi, Beriah, and their sister Serah.
The sons of Beriah: Heber and Malchiel.
18These are the sons of Jacob Zilpah had, the servant given by Laban to his daughter Leah, a total of sixteen children and grandchildren.
19The sons of Jacob's wife Rachel: Joseph and Benjamin.
20The sons Joseph had in the land of Egypt by Asenath, daughter of Potiphera, priest of On: Manasseh and Ephraim.
21The sons of Benjamin: Bela, Becher, Ashbel, Gera, Naaman, Ehi, Rosh, Muppim, Huppim, and Ard. 22These are the sons that Rachel had for Jacob, a total of fourteen children and grandchildren.
23The son of Dan: Hushim.
24The sons of Naphtali: Jahzeel, Guni, Jezer, and Shillem.
25These are the sons of Jacob that Bilhah had, the servant given by Laban to his daughter Rachel, a total of seven children and grandchildren.
26All those who were part of Jacob's family who came to Egypt (his blood relatives, apart from wives of Jacob's sons) totaled sixty-six. 27Including the two sons Joseph had in Egypt, the total number of Jacob's family who were in Egypt was seventy.
28Jacob sent Judah on ahead to meet Joseph and find out the way to Goshen. When they arrived in Goshen, 29Joseph ordered his chariot made ready and went to meet his father Israel there. As soon as he arrived, he hugged his father and wept for a long time.
30“Now I can die in peace because I have seen your face again and know you're still alive,” Israel told Joseph.
31Joseph told his brothers and his father's household, “I'm going to go and report to Pharaoh and tell him, ‘My brothers and my father's household have arrived from the country of Canaan to join me. 32They are shepherds and keep livestock. They have brought with them their flocks and herds and all their possessions.’
33When Pharaoh calls for you and asks you, ‘What work do you do?’ 34tell him, ‘Your servants have looked after livestock since we were children, both us and our fathers before us.’ That way you'll be able to live here in Goshen, because Egyptians look down on shepherds.”

CHAPTER 46
1And Israel went forth with all things that he had, and he came to the well of oath or Beersheba; and when sacrifices were slain there to [the] God of his father Isaac,
2he heard God by a vision in that night calling to him, and saying to him, Jacob! Jacob! To whom he answered, Lo! I am present.
3God said to him, I am the full strong God of thy father; do not thou dread, go down into Egypt, for I shall make thee there into a great folk;
4I shall go down thither with thee, and I shall bring thee turning again from thence, and Joseph shall set his hand on thine eyes.
5Jacob rose from the well of oath, and his sons took him, with their little children, and wives, in the wains which Pharaoh had sent to bear the eld [or old] man,
6and all things which he wielded in the land of Canaan; and he came into Egypt with [all] his seed,
7his sons, and their sons, and daughters, and all the generations together.
8Forsooth these be the names of the sons of Israel, that entered into Egypt; Jacob with his free children. The first begotten is Reuben;
9the sons of Reuben; Hanoch, and Phallu, and Hezron, and Carmi.
10The sons of Simeon; Jemuel, and Jamin, and Ohad, and Jachin, and Zohar, and Shaul, the son of a woman of Canaan.
11The sons of Levi; Gershon, Kohath, and Merari.
12The sons of Judah; Er, and Onan, and Shelah, and Perez, and Zarah. Forsooth Er and Onan died in the land of Canaan; and the sons of Perez were born, Hezron, and Hamul.
13The sons of Issachar; Tola, and Phuvah, and Job, and Shimron.
14The sons of Zebulun; Sered, and Elon, and Jahleel.
15These be the sons of Leah, which she childed to Jacob in Mesopotamia of Syria, with Dinah, her daughter; all the souls of his sons and daughters by Leah, three and thirty.
16The sons of Gad; Ziphion, and Haggi, Shuni, and Ezbon, Eri, and Arodi, and Areli.
17The sons of Asher; Jimnah, and Ishuah, and Isui, and Beriah; and Serah, the sister of them. The sons of Beriah; Heber, and Malchiel.
18These were the sons of Zilpah, whom Laban gave to Leah, his daughter, and through whom Jacob begat these sixteen persons.
19The sons of Rachel, Jacob’s wife, were Joseph and Benjamin.
20And two sons were born to Joseph in the land of Egypt, Manasseh and Ephraim, which Asenath, [the] daughter of Potipherah, priest of Heliopolis, childed to him.
21The sons of Benjamin were Belah, and Becher, and Ashbel, Gera, and Naaman, and Ehi, and Rosh, and Muppim, and Huppim, and Ard.
22These were the sons of Rachel, the which Jacob begat through her; all the persons were fourteen.
23The son of Dan; Hushim.
24The sons of Naphtali; Jahzeel, and Guni, and Jezer, and Shillem.
25These were the sons of Bilhah, whom Laban gave to Rachel his daughter. And Jacob begat these through Bilhah; all the souls were seven.
26And all the men that entered with Jacob into Egypt, and went out of his thigh, without his sons’ wives, were sixty and six.
27Forsooth the sons of Joseph, that were born to him in the land of Egypt, were two men. All the souls of the house of Jacob, that entered into Egypt, were seventy.
28Forsooth Jacob sent Judah before him to Joseph, that he should tell to him, and he meet with them in Goshen. And when Jacob had come thither,
29Joseph went up in his chariot to meet his father at the same place. And he saw Jacob, and felled on his neck, and wept betwixt embraces.
30And the father said to Joseph, Now I shall die joyful, for I have seen thy face, and I leave thee living.
31And Joseph spake to his brethren, and to all his father’s household, I shall go up, and tell to Pharaoh, and I shall say to him, My brethren, and the household of my father, that were in the land of Canaan, be come to me,
32and they be men keepers of sheep, and have busyness of flocks to be fed; they brought with them their sheep, and great beasts, and all things which they might have.
33And when Pharaoh shall call you, and shall say, What is your work?
34ye shall answer, We be thy servants, men shepherds, from our childhood till into this present time, both we and our fathers. Soothly ye shall say these things, that ye may dwell in the land of Goshen, for Egyptians loathe all keepers of sheep.
