Jacob Moves to Egypt
1So Israel set out with all that he had, and came to Beersheba, and offered sacrifices to the God of his father Isaac. 2And God spoke to Israel #Lit in the visionsin visions of the night and said, “Jacob, Jacob.” And he said, “Here I am.” 3Then He said, “I am God, the God of your father; do not be afraid to go down to Egypt, for I will make you into a great nation there. 4I will go down with you to Egypt, and I will also assuredly bring you up again; and Joseph will #Lit put his hand onclose your eyes.”
5Then Jacob left Beersheba, and the sons of Israel carried their father Jacob and their little ones and their wives in the wagons which Pharaoh had sent to carry him. 6They also took their livestock and their possessions, which they had acquired in the land of Canaan, and came to Egypt, Jacob and all his #Lit seeddescendants with him: 7his sons and his grandsons with him, his daughters and his granddaughters, and all his #Lit seeddescendants he brought with him to Egypt.
