katapi HOME Genesis 47:27-31 - Jacob's last request.  Gn.47.27-31

47 27 Thus Israel settled in Egypt, in Goshen; there they acquired land, and were fruitful and increased greatly. 47 28 Jacob stayed in Egypt for seventeen years and lived to be a hundred and forty-seven years old.

47 29 When the time of his death drew near, he summoned his son Joseph and said to him, 'If I may now claim this favour from you, put your hand under my thigh and swear by the LORD that you will deal loyally and truly with me and not bury me in Egypt. 47 30 When I die like my forefathers, you shall carry me from Egypt and bury me in their grave.' He answered, 'I will do as you say'; 47 31 but Jacob said, 'Swear it.' So he swore the oath, and Israel sank down over the end of the bed.
