katapi HOME Genesis 46:1-27 - Jacob's family goes to Egypt.  Gn.46.1-27

46 1 So Israel took his journey with all that he had, and came to Beer-sheba, and offered sacrifices to the God of his father Isaac. 46 2 And God spoke to Israel in visions of the night, and said, "Jacob, Jacob." And he said, "Here am I." 46 3 Then he said, "I am God, the God of your father; do not be afraid to go down to Egypt; for I will there make of you a great nation. 46 4 I will go down with you to Egypt, and I will also bring you up again; and Joseph's hand shall close your eyes." 46 5 Then Jacob set out from Beer-sheba; and the sons of Israel carried Jacob their father, their little ones, and their wives, in the wagons which Pharaoh had sent to carry him. 46 6 They also took their cattle and their goods, which they had gained in the land of Canaan, and came into Egypt, Jacob and all his offspring with him, 46 7 his sons, and his sons' sons with him, his daughters, and his sons' daughters; all his offspring he brought with him into Egypt.

46 8 Now these are the names of the descendants of Israel, who came into Egypt, Jacob and his sons. Reuben, Jacob's first-born, 46 9 and the sons of Reuben: Hanoch, Pallu, Hezron, and Carmi. 46 10 The sons of Simeon: Jemuel, Jamin, Ohad, Jachin, Zohar, and Shaul, the son of a Canaanitish woman. 46 11 The sons of Levi: Gershon, Kohath, and Merari. 46 12 The sons of Judah: Er, Onan, Shelah, Perez, and Zerah (but Er and Onan died in the land of Canaan); and the sons of Perez were Hezron and Hamul. 46 13 The sons of Issachar: Tola, Puvah, Iob, and Shimron. 46 14 The sons of Zebulun: Sered, Elon, and Jahleel 46 15 (these are the sons of Leah, whom she bore to Jacob in Paddan-aram, together with his daughter Dinah; altogether his sons and his daughters numbered thirty-three). 46 16 The sons of Gad: Ziphion, Haggi, Shuni, Ezbon, Eri, Arodi, and Areli. 46 17 The sons of Asher: Imnah, Ishvah, Ishvi, Beriah, with Serah their sister.
