Genesis 50

50
1And Yosef (Increaser; May God the Powerful One add [Yah]) fell upon his father’s face, and wept upon him, and kissed him.
2And Yosef commanded his servants the physicians to embalm his father: and the physicians embalmed Isra’el (he who holds onto God-The Creator).
3And forty days were fulfilled for him; for so are fulfilled the days of those which are embalmed: and the Mitzrayimot [Egyptians] (People of the Black Land) mourned for him threescore and ten days.
4And when the days of his mourning were past, Yosef spoke unto the house of Pharaoh, saying, If now I have found grace in youri eyes, speak, I pray you, in the ears of Pharaoh, saying,
5My father made me swear, saying, Lo, I die: in my grave which I have dug for me in the land of Kena’an (merchant; trader; or that humbles and subdues), there shall youi bury me. Now therefore let me go up, I pray youi, and bury my father, and I will come again.
6And Pharaoh (Great House) said, Go up, and bury youri father, according as he made youi swear.
7And Yosef (Increaser; May God the Powerful One add [Yah]) 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 Mitzrayim [Egypt],
8And all the house of Yosef, and his brethren, and his father’s house: only their little ones, and their flocks, and their herds, they left in the land of Goshen [Drawing Near] (approaching; drawing near).
9And there went up with him both chariots and horsemen: and it was a very great company.
10And they came to the threshing floor of Atad (a thorn), which [is] beyond Yarden (The Descender, Descending), and there they mourned with a great and very sore lamentation: and he made a mourning for his father seven days.
11And when the inhabitants of the land, the Kena’ani (low/humbled ones; merchants), saw the mourning in the floor of Atad (a thorn), they said, This [is] a grievous mourning to the Mitzrayimot [Egyptians] (People of the Black Land): For what reason the name of it was called Avel-Mitzrayim [Egypt] (meadow of the Double Distress or Double Stronghold, Black Land [Mitzrayim] [Egypt] which [is] beyond Yarden [The Descender, Descending]).
12And his sons did unto him according as he commanded them:
13For his sons carried him into the land of Kena’an (merchant; trader; or that humbles and subdues), and buried him in the cave of the field of Makhpelah (portion; double cave), which Avraham [exalted father/Fly They Will] bought with the field for a possession of a burying place of ‘Efron (fawn-like) the Hitti (terrorists), before Mamre (firmness; fatling (fat cattle) offering).
14And Yosef (Increaser; May God the Powerful One add [Yah]) returned into Mitzrayim [Egypt] (Double Distress or Double Stronghold, Black Land), he, and his brethren, and all that went up with him to bury his father, after he had buried his father.
15And when Yosef’s brethren saw that their father was dead, they said, Yosef will perhaps hate us, and will certainly requite (repay) us all the evil which we did unto him.
16And they sent a messenger unto Yosef, saying, youri father did command before he died, saying,
17So shall youf say unto Yosef, Forgive, I pray youi now, the trespass of youri brethren, and their sin; for they did unto youi evil: and now, we pray youi, forgive the trespass of the servants of the God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered] of youri father. And Yosef wept when they spoke unto him.
18And his brethren also went and fell down before his face; and they said, Behold, we [be] youri servants.
19And Yosef said unto them, Fear not: for [am] I in the place of God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered]?
20But as for you, youf thought evil against me; [but] God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered] meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as [it is] this day, to save much people alive.
21Now therefore fear youf not: I will nourish youi, and youri little ones. And he comforted them, and spoke kindly unto them.
22And Yosef dwelt in Mitzrayim [Egypt], he, and his father’s house: and Yosef lived an hundred and ten years.
23And Yosef saw Efrayim’s children of the third [generation]: the children also of Makhir (sold; selling) the son of M’nasheh (causing to forget; from a debt) were brought up upon Yosef’s (Increaser; May God the Powerful One add [Yah]) knees.
24And Yosef (Increaser; May God the Powerful One add [Yah]) said unto his brethren, I die: and God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered] will surely visit you, and bring youi out of this land unto the land which he swore to Avraham [exalted father/Fly They Will], to Yitz’chak [Laughter], and to Ya’akov (he who holds onto the heel of).
25And Yosef took an oath of the children of Isra’el (he who holds onto God-The Creator), saying, God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered] will surely visit you, and youf shall carry up my bones from hence.
26So Yosef (Increaser; May God the Powerful One add [Yah]) died, [being] an hundred and ten years old: and they embalmed him, and he was put in a coffin in Mitzrayim [Egypt] (Double Distress or Double Stronghold, Black Land).

1 Joseph, realizing this, fell upon his father's face, weeping and kissing him.
2 And he instructed his servant physicians to embalm his father with aromatics.
3 And while they were fulfilling his orders, forty days passed. For this was the method of embalming dead bodies. And Egypt wept for him for seventy days.
4 And when the time for mourning was fulfilled, Joseph spoke to the family of Pharaoh: "If I have found favor in your sight, speak to the ears of Pharaoh.
5 For my father made me swear, saying: 'See, I am dying. You shall bury me in my sepulcher which I dug for myself in the land of Canaan.' Therefore, I shall go up and bury my father, and then return."
6 And Pharaoh said to him, "Go up and bury your father, just as he made you swear."
7 So as he went up, all the elders of the house of Pharaoh went with him, along with every patriarch in the land of Egypt,
8 and the house of Joseph with his brothers, except their little ones and flocks and also the herds, which they left behind in the land of Goshen.
9 Likewise, he had in his company chariots and horsemen. And it became a crowd without restraint.
10 And they arrived at the threshing place of Atad, which is situated beyond the Jordan. There they spent seven full days celebrating the funeral rites with a great and vehement lamentation.
11 And when the inhabitants of the land of Canaan had seen this, they said, "This is a great Lamentation for the Egyptians." And for this reason, the name of that place was called, "The Lamentation of Egypt."
12 And so, the sons of Jacob did just as he had instructed them.
13 And carrying him into the land of Canaan, they buried him in the double cave, which Abraham had bought along with its field, from Ephron the Hittite, as a possession for burial, opposite Mamre.
14 And Joseph returned into Egypt with his brothers and all those of his company, having buried his father.
15 Now that he was dead, his brothers were afraid, and they said to one another: "Perhaps now he may remember the injury that he suffered and requite us for all the evil that we did to him."
16 So they sent a message to him, saying: "Your father instructed us before he died,
17 that we should say these words to you from him: 'I beg you to forget the wickedness of your brothers, and the sin and malice that they practiced against you.' Likewise, we petition you to release the servants of the God of your father from this iniquity." Hearing this, Joseph wept.
18 And his brothers went to him. And reverencing prostrate on the ground, they said, "We are your servants."
19 And he answered them: "Do not be afraid. Are we able to resist the will of God?
20 You devised evil against me. But God turned it into good, so that he might exalt me, just as you presently discern, and so that he might bring about the salvation of many peoples.
21 Do not be afraid. I will pasture you and your little ones." And he consoled them, and he spoke mildly and leniently.
22 And he lived in Egypt with all his father's house; and he survived for one hundred and ten years. And he saw the sons of Ephraim to the third generation. Likewise, the sons of Machir, the son of Manasseh, were born onto Joseph's knees.
23 After these things happened, he said to his brothers: "God will visit you after my death, and he will make you ascend from this land into the land which he swore to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob."
24 And when he had made them swear and had said, "God will visit you; carry my bones with you from this place,"
25 he died, having completed one hundred and ten years of his life. And having been embalmed with aromatics, he was laid to rest in a coffin in Egypt.
