Gênesis

1. And Israel took his journey with all that he had, and came to Beer-sheba; and he offered sacrifices to the God of his father Isaac.

2. And God spoke to Israel in the visions of the night and said, Jacob, Jacob! And he said, Here am I.

3. And he said, I am *God, the God of thy father: fear not to go down to Egypt; for I will there make of thee a great nation.

4. I will go down with thee to Egypt, and I will also certainly bring thee up; and Joseph shall put his hand on thine eyes.

5. And Jacob rose up from Beer-sheba; and the sons of Israel carried Jacob their father, and their little ones, and their wives, on the waggons that Pharaoh had sent to carry him.

6. And they took their cattle, and their goods which they had acquired in the land of Canaan, and came to Egypt, Jacob and all his seed with him;

7. his sons and his sons' sons with him, his daughters and his sons' daughters and all his seed he brought with him to Egypt.

8. And these are the names of the sons of Israel who came into Egypt: Jacob and his sons. Jacob's firstborn, Reuben.

9. And the sons of Reuben: Enoch, and Phallu, and Hezron, and Carmi.

10. -And the sons of Simeon: Jemuel, and Jamin, and Ohad, and Jachin, and Zohar, and Saul the son of a Canaanitish woman.

11. -And the sons of Levi: Gershon, Kohath, and Merari.

12. -And the sons of Judah: Er, and Onan, and Shelah, and Pherez, and Zerah; but Er and Onan died in the land of Canaan. And the sons of Pherez were Hezron and Hamul.

13. -And the sons of Issachar: Tola, and Puah, and Job, and Shimron.

14. -And the sons of Zebulun: Sered, and Elon, and Jahleel.

15. -These are the sons of Leah, whom she bore to Jacob in Padan-Aram; and his daughter, Dinah. All the souls of his sons and his daughters were thirty-three.

16. And the sons of Gad: Ziphion and Haggi, Shuni and Ezbon, Eri, and Arodi, and Areli.

17. -And the sons of Asher: Jimnah, and Jishvah, and Jishvi, and Beriah; and Serah their sister; and the sons of Beriah: Heber and Malchiel.

18. -These are the sons of Zilpah, whom Laban gave to Leah his daughter; and she bore these to Jacob: sixteen souls.

19. The sons of Rachel Jacob's wife: Joseph and Benjamin.

20. And to Joseph in the land of Egypt were born Manasseh and Ephraim, whom Asnath bore to him, the daughter of Potipherah the priest in On.

21. -And the sons of Benjamin: Belah, and Becher, and Ashbel, Gera and Naaman, Ehi and Rosh, Muppim, and Huppim, and Ard.

22. -These are the sons of Rachel who were born to Jacob: all the souls were fourteen.

23. And the sons of Dan: Hushim.

24. -And the sons of Naphtali: Jahzeel, and Guni, and Jezer, and Shillem.

25. -These are the sons of Bilhah, whom Laban gave to Rachel his daughter; and she bore these to Jacob: all the souls were seven.

26. All the souls that came with Jacob to Egypt, that had come out of his loins, besides Jacob's sons' wives: all the souls were sixty-six.

27. And the sons of Joseph who were born to him in Egypt, were two souls. All the souls of the house of Jacob that came to Egypt were seventy.

28. And he sent Judah before him to Joseph, to give notice before he came to Goshen. And they came into the land of Goshen.

29. Then Joseph yoked his chariot, and went up to meet Israel his father, to Goshen, and he presented himself to him; and he fell on his neck, and wept on his neck a good while.

30. And Israel said to Joseph, Now let me die, after I have seen thy face, since thou still livest.

31. And Joseph said to his brethren and to his father's house, I will go up, and tell Pharaoh, and say to him, My brethren and my father's house, who were in the land of Canaan, are come to me;

32. and the men are shepherds, for they have been occupied with cattle; and they have brought their sheep, and their cattle, and all that they have.

33. And it shall come to pass that when Pharaoh shall call you and say, What is your occupation?

34. then ye shall say, Thy servants are men that have been occupied with cattle from our youth even until now, both we and our fathers; in order that ye may dwell in the land of Goshen; for every shepherd is an abomination to the Egyptians.

1. And Joseph came and told Pharaoh and said, My father and my brethren, and their sheep and their cattle, and all that they have, are come out of the land of Canaan; and behold, they are in the land of Goshen.

2. And he took from the whole number of his brethren, five men, and set them before Pharaoh.

3. And Pharaoh said to his brethren, What is your occupation? And they said to Pharaoh, Thy servants are shepherds, both we and our fathers.

4. And they said to Pharaoh, To sojourn in the land are we come; for there is no pasture for the sheep that thy servants have, for the famine is grievous in the land of Canaan; and now, we pray thee, let thy servants dwell in the land of Goshen.

5. And Pharaoh spoke to Joseph, saying, Thy father and thy brethren are come to thee.

6. The land of Egypt is before thee; in the best of the land settle thy father and thy brethren: let them dwell in the land of Goshen. And if thou knowest men of activity among them, then set them as overseers of cattle over what I have.

7. And Joseph brought Jacob his father, and set him before Pharaoh. And Jacob blessed Pharaoh.

8. And Pharaoh said to Jacob, How many are the days of the years of thy life?

9. And Jacob said to Pharaoh, The days of the years of my sojourning are a hundred and thirty years. Few and evil have been the days of the years of my life, and they do not attain to the days of the years of the life of my fathers, in the days of their sojourning.

10. And Jacob blessed Pharaoh, and went out from Pharaoh.

11. And Joseph settled his father and his brethren, and gave them a possession in the land of Egypt, in the best of the land, in the land of Rameses, as Pharaoh had commanded.

12. And Joseph maintained his father, and his brethren, and all his father's household, with bread, according to the number of the little ones.

13. And there was no bread in all the land; for the famine was very grievous; and the land of Egypt and the land of Canaan were exhausted through the famine.

14. And Joseph gathered up all the money that was found in the land of Egypt, and in the land of Canaan, for the grain which they bought; and Joseph brought the money into Pharaoh's house.

15. And when money came to an end in the land of Egypt and in the land of Canaan, all the Egyptians came to Joseph, saying, Give us bread! for why should we die before thee? for {our} money is all gone.

16. And Joseph said, Give your cattle, and I will give you for your cattle, if {your} money be all gone.

17. And they brought their cattle to Joseph; and Joseph gave them bread for horses, and for flocks of sheep, and for herds of cattle, and for asses; and he fed them with bread for all their cattle that year.

18. And that year ended; and they came to him the second year, and said to him, We will not hide {it} from my lord that since {our} money is come to an end, and the herds of cattle are in the possession of my lord, nothing is left before my lord but our bodies and our land.

19. Why should we die before thine eyes, both we and our land? Buy us and our land for bread, and we and our land will be bondmen to Pharaoh; and give seed, that we may live, and not die, and that the land be not desolate.

20. And Joseph bought all the soil of Egypt for Pharaoh; for the Egyptians sold every man his field, because the famine prevailed over them; and the land became Pharaoh's.

21. And as for the people, he removed them into the cities, from {one} end of the borders of Egypt even to the {other} end of it.

22. Only the land of the priests he did not buy; for the priests had an assigned portion from Pharaoh, and ate their assigned portion which Pharaoh had given them; so they did not sell their land.

23. And Joseph said to the people, Behold, I have bought you this day and your land for Pharaoh: lo, here is seed for you, and sow the land.

24. And it shall come to pass in the increase that ye shall give the fifth to Pharaoh, and the four parts shall be your own, for seed of the field, and for your food, and for them of your households, and for food for your little ones.

25. And they said, Thou hast saved us alive. Let us find favour in the eyes of my lord, and we will be Pharaoh's bondmen.

26. And Joseph made it a law over the land of Egypt to this day, {that} the fifth should be for Pharaoh, except the land of the priests: theirs alone did not become Pharaoh's.

27. And Israel dwelt in the land of Egypt, in the land of Goshen; and they had possessions in it, and were fruitful and multiplied exceedingly.

28. And Jacob lived in the land of Egypt seventeen years; and the days of Jacob, the years of his life, were a hundred and forty-seven years.

29. And the days of Israel approached that he should die. And he called his son Joseph, and said to him, If now I have found favour in thine eyes, put, I pray thee, thy hand under my thigh, and deal kindly and truly with me: bury me not, I pray thee, in Egypt;

30. but when I shall lie with my fathers, thou shalt carry me out of Egypt, and bury me in their sepulchre. And he said, I will do according to thy word.

31. And he said, Swear to me; and he swore to him. And Israel worshipped on the bed's head.

1. 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 is coming to thee. And Israel strengthened himself, and sat upon the bed.

3. And Jacob said to Joseph, The Almighty *God appeared to me at Luz in the land of Canaan, and blessed me,

4. and he said to me, Behold, I will make thee fruitful and multiply thee, and I will make of thee a company of peoples; and will give this land to thy seed after thee {for} an everlasting possession.

5. And now thy two sons, who were born to thee in the land of Egypt before I came to thee into Egypt, shall be mine: Ephraim and Manasseh shall be mine, as Reuben and Simeon.

6. And thy family which thou hast begotten after them shall be thine: they shall be called after the name of their brethren in their inheritance.

7. And as for me, when I came from Padan, Rachel died by me in the land of Canaan on the way, when there was yet a certain distance to come to Ephrath; and I buried her there on the way to Ephrath, that is, Bethlehem.

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

9. And Joseph said to his father, They are my sons, whom God has given me here. And he said, Bring them, I pray thee, to me, that I may bless them.

10. But the eyes of Israel were heavy from age: he could not see. And he brought them nearer to him; and he kissed them, and embraced them.

11. And Israel said to Joseph, I had not thought to see thy face; and behold, God has let me see also thy seed.

12. And Joseph brought them out from his knees, and bowed down 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 Israel's right hand, and brought {them} near to him.

14. But Israel stretched out his right hand, and laid {it} on Ephraim's head-now he was the younger-and his left hand on Manasseh's head; guiding his hands intelligently, for Manasseh was the firstborn.

15. And he blessed Joseph, and said, The God before whom my fathers Abraham and Isaac walked, the God that shepherded me all my life long to this day,

16. the Angel that redeemed me from all evil, bless the lads; and let my name be named upon them, and the name of my fathers Abraham and Isaac; and let them grow into a multitude in the midst of the land!

17. When Joseph saw that his father laid his right hand on the head of Ephraim, it was evil in his eyes; and he took hold of his father's hand to remove it from Ephraim's head to Manasseh's head.

18. And Joseph said to his father, Not so, my father, for this is the firstborn: put thy right hand on his head.

19. But his father refused and said, I know, my son, I know: he also will become a people, and he also will be great; but truly his younger brother will be greater than he; and his seed will become the fulness of nations.

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

21. And Israel said to Joseph, Behold, I die; and God will be with you, and bring you again to the land of your fathers.

22. And *I* have given to thee one tract {of land} above thy brethren, which I took out of the hand of the Amorite with my sword and with my bow.

1. And Jacob called his sons, and said, Gather yourselves together, and I will tell you what will befall you at the end of days.

2. Assemble yourselves, and hear, ye sons of Jacob, And listen to Israel your father.

3. Reuben, thou art my firstborn, My might, and the firstfruits of my vigour: Excellency of dignity, and excellency of strength.

4. Impetuous as the waters, thou shalt have no pre-eminence; Because thou wentest up to thy father's couch: Then defiledst thou {it}: he went up to my bed.

5. Simeon and Levi are brethren: Instruments of violence their swords.

6. My soul, come not into their council; Mine honour, be not united with their assembly; For in their anger they slew men, And in their wantonness houghed oxen.

7. Cursed be their anger, for it {was} violent; And their rage, for it {was} cruel! I will divide them in Jacob, And scatter them in Israel.

8. Judah-{as to} thee, thy brethren will praise thee; Thy hand will be upon the neck of thine enemies; Thy father's children will bow down to thee.

9. Judah is a young lion; From the prey, my son, thou art gone up. He stoopeth, he layeth himself down as a lion, And as a lioness: who will rouse him up?

10. The sceptre will not depart from Judah, Nor the lawgiver from between his feet, Until Shiloh come, And to him will be the obedience of peoples.

11. He bindeth his foal to the vine, And his ass's colt to the choice vine; He washeth his dress in wine, And his garment in the blood of grapes.

12. The eyes are red with wine, And the teeth {are} white with milk.

13. Zebulun will dwell at the shore of the seas; Yea, he will be at the shore of the ships, And his side {toucheth} upon Sidon.

14. Issachar is a bony ass, Crouching down between two hurdles.

15. And he saw the rest that it was good, And the land that it was pleasant; And he bowed his shoulder to bear, And was a tributary servant.

16. Dan will judge his people, As another of the tribes of Israel.

17. Dan will be a serpent on the way, A horned snake on the path, Which biteth the horse's heels, So that the rider falleth backwards.

18. I wait for thy salvation, O Jehovah.

19. Gad-troops will rush upon him; But he will rush upon the heel.

20. Out of Asher, his bread shall be fat, And he will give royal dainties.

21. Naphtali is a hind let loose; He giveth goodly words.

22. Joseph is a fruitful bough; A fruitful bough by a well; {His} branches shoot over the wall.

23. The archers have provoked him, And shot at, and hated him;

24. But his bow abideth firm, And the arms of his hands are supple By the hands of the Mighty One of Jacob. From thence is the shepherd, the stone of Israel:

25. From the *God of thy father, and he will help thee; And from the Almighty, and he will bless thee-With blessings of heaven from above, With blessings of the deep that lieth under, With blessings of the breast and of the womb.

26. The blessings of thy father surpass the blessings of my ancestors, Unto the bounds of the everlasting hills: They shall be on the head of Joseph, And on the crown of the head of him that was separated from his brethren.

27. Benjamin-{as} a wolf will he tear to pieces; In the morning he will devour the prey, And in the evening he will divide the booty.

28. All these are the twelve tribes of Israel, and this is what their father spoke to them; and he blessed them: every one according to his blessing he blessed them.

29. And he charged them, and said to them, I am gathered to my people: bury me with my fathers in the cave that is in the field of Ephron the Hittite,

30. in the cave that is in the field of Machpelah, which is opposite to Mamre, in the land of Canaan, which Abraham bought of Ephron the Hittite along with the field for a possession of a sepulchre.

31. There they buried Abraham and Sarah his wife; there they buried Isaac and Rebecca his wife; and there I buried Leah.

32. The purchase of the field, and of the cave that is in it, was from the children of Heth.

33. And when Jacob had made an end of commanding his sons, he gathered his feet into the bed, and expired, and was gathered to his peoples.

1. And Joseph fell upon his father's face, and wept upon him, and kissed him.

2. And Joseph commanded his servants the physicians to embalm his father. And the physicians embalmed Israel.

3. And forty days were fulfilled for him; for so are fulfilled the days of those who are embalmed. And the Egyptians mourned for him seventy days.

4. And when the days of his mourning were past, Joseph spoke to the house of Pharaoh, saying, If now I have found favour in your eyes, speak, I pray you, in the ears of Pharaoh, saying,

5. My father made me swear, saying, Behold, I die; in my grave which I have dug myself in the land of Canaan, there shalt thou bury me. And now, let me go up, I pray thee, that I may bury my father; and I will come again.

6. And Pharaoh said, Go up and bury thy father, according as he made thee swear.

7. And Joseph went up to bury his father; and with him went up all the bondmen of Pharaoh, the elders of his house, and all the elders of the land of Egypt,

8. and all the house of Joseph, 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.

9. And there went up with him both chariots and horsemen; and the camp was very great.

10. And they came to the threshing-floor of Atad, which is beyond the Jordan; and there they lamented with a great and very grievous lamentation; and he made a mourning for his father of seven days.

11. And the inhabitants of the land, the Canaanites, saw the mourning at the threshing-floor of Atad, and they said, This is a grievous mourning of the Egyptians. Therefore the name of it was called Abel-Mizraim, which is beyond the Jordan.

12. And his sons did to him according as he had commanded them;

13. and his sons carried him into the land of Canaan, and buried him in the cave of the field of Machpelah which Abraham had bought along with the field, for a possession of a sepulchre, of Ephron the Hittite, opposite to Mamre.

14. And, after he had buried his father, Joseph returned to Egypt, he and his brethren, and all that had gone up with him to bury his father.

15. And when Joseph's brethren saw that their father was dead, they said, If now Joseph should be hostile to us, and should indeed requite us all the evil that we did to him!

16. And they sent a messenger to Joseph, saying, Thy father commanded before he died, saying,

17. Thus shall ye speak to Joseph: Oh forgive, I pray thee, the transgression of thy brethren, and their sin! for they did evil to thee. And now, we pray thee, forgive the transgression of the servants of the God of thy father. And Joseph wept when they spoke to him.

18. And his brethren also went and fell down before his face, and said, Behold, we are thy bondmen.

19. And Joseph said to them, Fear not: am I then in the place of God?

20. Ye indeed meant evil against me: God meant it for good, in order that he might do as {it is} this day, to save a great people alive.

21. And now, fear not: I will maintain you and your little ones. And he comforted them, and spoke consolingly to them.

22. And Joseph dwelt in Egypt, he and his father's house; and Joseph lived a hundred and ten years.

23. And Joseph saw Ephraim's children of the third {generation}; the sons also of Machir the son of Manasseh were born on Joseph's knees.

24. And Joseph said to his brethren, I die; and God will certainly visit you, and bring you up out of this land, into the land that he swore unto Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob.

25. And Joseph took an oath of the children of Israel, saying, God will certainly visit you; and ye shall carry up my bones hence.

26. And Joseph died, a hundred and ten years old; and they embalmed him; and he was put in a coffin in Egypt.
