The Lord had said to Abram go from your country your people and your father's house to the land that I will show you, I will make you a great nation and I will bless you I will make your name great and you will be a blessing I will bless those who bless you and whoever curses you I will curse him and all the people of the earth will be blessed through you so Abram went as the Lord had told him and The Lot was with him Abram was 75 years old when he left for Heron, he took his wife Sarai his nephew, he cast lots all the possessions that they had accumulated and the people that they had acquired in Heron and they left for the land of Canaan and arrived there.
Abram traveled through the land to where he saw the great Murray tree at Shechem. At that time the Canaanites were in the land. The Lord appeared to Abram and said to your descendants: "I will give you this land," so he built an altar there to the Lord who had appeared to him from there, went to the hills east of Bethel and pitched his tent with Bethel to the west and I to the east, there he built an altar to the Lord and called on the name of the Lord that Abrams put. He left and continued towards the Negev now there was famine in the land and Abram went down to Egypt to live there for a while because the famine was severe when he was about to enter Egypt he said to his wife Sarai I know what a beautiful woman . you are when the Egyptians see you they will say that this is their wife then they will kill me but they will let you live say that you are my sister so that they will treat me well for you and my life will be saved thanks to you when Abram When they arrived in Egypt, the Egyptians saw that Sarai was a very beautiful woman and when Pharaoh's officials saw her, they praised her before Pharaoh and took her to his palace.
He treated Abram well out of love for her and Abram acquired sheep and cows, males and donkeys, males and female servants. and camels, but the Lord inflicted serious illnesses on Pharaoh and his house because of Sarai, Abram's wife, so Pharaoh called Abram, what have you done to me? He said: why didn't you tell me she was your wife? Why did you say she is my wife? sister so I took her to be my wife now so here is your wife take her and go then Pharaoh gave orders about Abram to his men and they sent him with his wife and everything he had Genesis chapter 13.
Then Abram went up from Egypt to the Negev with his wife and everything he had and the lot was with him Abram had become very rich in livestock and in silver and gold from the Negev he went from one place to another until he came to Bethel to the place between Bethel and Yo, where before there was His tent had been and where he had first built an altar, there Abram called on the name of the Lord. Now Lot, who walked with Abram, also had flocks, herds, and tents, but the land could not support them as long as they remained together. because their possessions were so large that they could not stay together and a quarrel arose between Abram's shepherds and Lotes, the Canaanites and the parasites also lived in the land at that time, so Abram said to Lot: Do not have any quarrels between you and I or between your shepherds and mine because we are close relatives it is not the whole land before we separate if you go to the left I will go to the right if you go to the right I will go to the left many looked around and saw that all the plain of Jordan towards zor was well watered like the garden of the Lord like the land of Egypt this was before the Lord destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah so Lot shows the entire plain of Jordan and heads east the two men They separated.
Abram lived in the land of Canaan while Lot lived among the cities of the plain and pitched his tents near Sodom. Now the people of Sodom were wicked and sinning greatly against the Lord, the Lord told Abram after Lot had separated. From it look around you from where you are to the North and the South to the east and to the west all the land that you see I will give to you and your Offspring forever I will make your Offspring like the dust of the earth so that if anyone could count Then Abram went to live near the great trees of Mamrei in Hebron, where he pitched his tents and there he built an altar to the Lord Genesis chapter 14.
At the time when Amra fell he was king of Shannar Ariach king of Elisar Loimar king of Ilam and tadal king of these kings went to war against a bara king of Sodom beersha king of Gomorrah shanab king of adma shamabur king of zebollium and the king of Bela which is Zoar all these last kings joined forces in the valley of siddim which is the Dead Sea valley for 12 years they had been subject to Keto Lamar but in the year 13 they rebelled in the year 14 Kenner Lamar and the The kings allied with him went out and defeated the Rephites at Ashtaroth Karnaeem, the Zazites at Ham, a the Emites and Chávez Kiryathaim and the Horites in the mountainous region of the seers as far as El Paran, near the desert, then they returned and went to n mishpat which is Kadesh and conquered all the territory of the Amalekites as well as the Amorites who lived in Hazazan Tamar then the king of Sodom the king of Gomorrah the king of Admah the king of Zeboyam and the king of Bela that is Zoar marched and drew their lines of battle in the valley of Siddim against Cato leomar king of Elam tadal king of and Raphael king of Shinar and Ariak king of Elisar Four kings against five Now the valley of Siddim was full of tar pits and when the kings of Sodom and Gomorrah fled some of the men fell into them and the rest fled to the hills the Four Kings took over of all the goods of Sodom and Gomorrah and all their food then they left, they also took Abram's nephew in his possessions since he lived in Sodom, a man who had escaped, came and reported this to Abram the Hebrew.
Now Abram lived near the great trees of Mama Ray the Amorite, a brother of Eschkol and Aynor, all of whom were allied with Abram when Abram heard that his relative had been taken captive. He called the 318 trained men born in his house and went in pursuit to Dan during the night. Abram divided his men to attack them and defeated them, pursuing them as far as Hoba, north of Damascus, which he recovered all of his property and brought back. their relative fate in their possessions along with the women and the rest of the people after Abram returned from defeating Kedor Leomar and the king's allies with him, the king of Sodom went out to meet him in the valley of Chavez, which is the valley of the king, then Melchizedek king of Salem brought out the Bread and Wine, he was Priest of the Most High God and blessed Abram saying Blessed be Abram by the Most High God creator of Heaven and Earth and praise be to the Most High God who gave your enemies in your hand, then Abram gave him the tenth. of all the king of Sodom said to Abram, give me the people and keep the goods for yourself, but Abram said to the king of Sodom with his hand raised, I have sworn an oath to the Lord God most high creator of Heaven and Earth that I will accept nothing from you or not even a thread nor the strap of a sandal so that you can never say I made Abram rich I will not accept more than what my men have eaten and I will leave the share that corresponds to the men who went with me to Aynor ishkal and momre let them have their share Genesis 15.
After this the word of the Lord came to Abram in a vision do not be afraid Abram I am your Shield your reward is very great but Abram said Sovereign Lord what can you give me now I am left without children and the one who will inherit my property is Eliezer of Damascus and Abram said you have not given me children then a servant of my house will be my heir then the word of the Lord came to him this man will not be your heir but a son who is of your own flesh and blood will be your heir.
He took him outside and said to him: look at the sky and count the stars, if you can truly count them, then he said to him: this is how your descendants will be. Abram believed the Lord and attributed it to Him as righteousness and also said to him: I am the Lord who brought you out of UR of the Chaldeans to give you this land to take possession of it, but Abram said Sovereign Lord, how can I know that I will get possession of it? Then the Lord said to him: Bring me a heifer, a goat and a ram each of three years old, along with a dove and a young pigeon.
Abram brought him all this, cut them up and arranged the birds facing each other, but he did not Cut them in half, then birds of prey descended on the corpses, but Abram drove them away when the sun was setting. Abram fell into a deep

sleep

and a thick and terrible darkness took hold of him. Then the Lord told him to know for sure that for 400 years. your descendants will be foreigners in a country that is not theirs and they will be enslaved and mistreated there, but I will punish the nation they serve as slaves and then they will leave with great possessions, but you will go to your ancestors in peace and you will be buried in a good old age in the fourth generation, your descendants will return here because the sin of the Amorites has not yet reached its fullness when the sun had set in darkness a sheath of smoking fire had fallen with a burning torch appeared and passed among the pieces on that day Jehovah made a covenant with Abram and said to your descendants I give this land from the Wadi of Egypt to the Great River the Euphrates the land of the Keynites Kennezides Katamonites Hittites parasites Referites Amorites Canaanites Gurgeshites and Jebusites Genesis chapter 16 Now the wife of Sarai Abram had not borne him children, but she had an Egyptian slave named Hagar, so she told Abram that the Lord has prevented me from having children.
Go sleep with my slave, maybe I can start a family through her. Abram agreed with what Sarai said. so after Abram had been living in Canaan 10 years Sarai his wife took his Egyptian slave Hagar and gave her to her husband to be his wife he slept with Hagar and she conceived when he found out she was pregnant he began to despise to her mistress then Sarai said to Abram you are responsible for the evil that I am suffering I put my slave in your arms and now that she knows that she is pregnant she despises me that the lord judges between you and me your slave is in your hands Abram said do with her whatever you want I think it's better then Sarai mistreated Hagar and she ran away from her.
The angel of the LordThey will die early the next morning. Abimelech called all of his officials and when he told them everything that had happened, they were very afraid. Then Abimelech called Abraham and said to him: Have you done to us how have I wronged you that you have brought such great guilt upon Me? In My Kingdom you have done things to me that should never be done and Abimelech asked Abraham what your reason was for doing this. Abraham responded. I told myself. surely there is no fear of God in this place and they will kill me because of my wife, besides she really is my sister, my father's daughter, although not my mother's, and she became my wife and when God had me, I left my father's house.
I told him that this is how you can show me your love wherever we go, say about me that he is my brother. Then Abimelech brought sheep, cattle, male and female slaves and gave them to Abraham and he returned to him his and Abimelech's wife Sarah. He said my land is before you live wherever you want to Sarah he said I will give your brother a thousand shekels of silver this is to cover the offense against you in front of all those who are with you you are completely vindicated so Abraham prayed to God and God healed Abimelech his wife and his slaves so that they could have children again because the Lord had prevented all the women in the house of Abimelech from conceiving because of Abraham's wife, Sarah Genesis chapter 21.
Now the Lord was merciful to Sarah as he had said and the Lord He did for Sara what he had promised her. Sara became pregnant and gave birth. his son to Abraham in his old age, at the same time that God had promised him Abraham gave the name Isaac to the son that Sarah gave him when his son Isaac was eight days old Abraham circumcised him as God had commanded Abraham was one hundred years old when his A son was born to Isaac. Sara said that God has made me laugh and everyone who hears this will laugh with me and added who would have told Abraham that Sarah would breastfeed children and I have given her a son in her old age.
He grew up and was weaned, and on the day Isaac was weaned, Abraham celebrated a great feast, but Sarah saw that the son that Hagar the Egyptian had given Abraham was mocking, and she said to Abraham, Get rid of that slave girl and her son. for that woman's son. I will never share the inheritance with my son Isaac. The matter distressed Abraham greatly because it involved his son. Do not be so distressed about the child and your slave listen to everything that Sara tells you because it is through Isaac that your descendants will be told to you.
He will make the son of the slave a nation also because he is your offspring. Early the next morning, Abraham took some food in a waterskin and gave it to Hagar, put it on her shoulders, and then sent her away with the child. He went on his way and wandered in the desert of Beersheba when the water in the skin ran out, he put the child under one of the bushes, then he went away and sat down a bow's shot away or thought: I cannot see the child die. and as she sat there she began to sob God heard the child crying and the angel of God called to Hagar from heaven and said to her what's wrong Hagar, don't be afraid God has heard the child crying while he lies there pick up the child and take him. he by the hand because I will make him a great nation then God opened her eyes and she saw a well of water so she went and filled the skin with water and gave the child a drink God was with the child while she was growing up.
He lived in the desert and became an archer while living in the desert of Perin his mother got him a wife from Egypt at that time Abimelech and Ficol the commander of his forces told Abraham God is with you in everything you do now swear to me here before God that you will not make lies with me or with my children or with my descendant show me and the country where you now reside as a foreigner the same kindness that I have shown you Abraham said I swear it then Abraham complained to Abimelech about a well of water that Abimelech's servants had taken but Abimelech said I don't know who did this you didn't tell me and I only found out today so Abraham brought sheep and cattle and gave them to Abimelech and the two men made a treaty Abraham set aside seven Lambs from the flock and Abimelech asked Abraham what is the meaning of these seven Lambs that you yourselves have set apart he answered except these seven Lambs from my hand as a testimony that I dug this well for that place was called Beersheba because the two men swore there after the treaty had been made at Beersheba.
Abimelech and Phaicol the commander of his forces returned to the land of the Philistines. Abraham planted a tamarisk tree in Beersheba and there he called on the name of the Lord the Eternal God and Abraham stayed in the land of the Philistines for a long time Genesis chapter 22. Some time later God tested Abraham and Abraham said to him here I am he responded then God said Take your son, your only son, whom you love, Isaac, and go to the region of Mary and offer him there as a burnt offering on a mountain. I will show you that early in the morning, Abraham got up and loaded his donkey, he took with him two of his servants and his son Isaac, when he cut enough wood for the burnt offering he set it for the place that God had told him on the third day.
Abraham looked up and saw the place in the distance, he said to his servants, stay here with the donkey while I and the boy go there, we will worship and then we will return to you. Abraham took the wood for the burnt offering and gave it to his son Isaac and he himself carried the fire and the knife while the two went together Isaac spoke and said to his father Abraham father yes my son Abraham answered the fire and the wood are here Isaac said but where is the Lamb for the burnt offering Abraham answered God himself will provide the lamb for the burnt offering my son when they arrived at the place that God had told him about Abraham built an altar there and arranged the wood on it, he tied his son Isaac and put him on the altar on top of the wood, then he spread his hand and took the knife to kill his son, but the angel of the Lord called Abraham Abraham from heaven. here I am he answered don't put your hand on the child he said don't do anything to him now I know that you fear God because you have not denied me your son your only son Abraham looked up and there in a thicket he saw a ram caught by its horns he approached and he took the ram and sacrificed it as a burnt offering in place of his son so Abraham called that place the Lord will provide and to this day it is said on the mountain of the Lord it will be provided The angel of the Lord called Abraham from heaven by second time and said to him: I swear by myself, declares the Lord, that because you have done this and have not withheld your son, your only son, I will surely bless you and make your descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and as the sand on the ground. shore of the sea your descendants will take possession of the cities of their enemies and through your descendants all the nations of the Earth will be blessed because you have obeyed me then Abraham returned with his servants and they set out together for Beersheba and Abraham stayed in Beersheba some time later. , Abraham was told that milka is also a mother, she has given children to your brother nacor like the firstborn Buzz, his brother hemuel, the father of Aram, kessed hasso pill Dash jidlaf and bethuel bethul became the father of Rebecca milka bore. these eight Children of Abraham's brother, Nahor his concubine whose name was Ruma also had Children and Maca Genesis chapter 23.
Sarah lived to be 127 years old she died in Kiriath Arba which is Hebron in the land of Canaan and Abraham went to mourn Sarah and he wept over her, then Abraham stood beside his dead wife and spoke to the Hittites, he said: I am a foreigner and a stranger among you, sell me property for a burial place here so that I can bury my dead. The Hittites responded to Abraham, Lord, listen to us. You are a mighty prince among us, bury your dead in the choicest of our tombs, none of us will deny you his grave for burying your dead, then Abraham stood up and bowed before the people of the land, the Hittites, to them.
He said if they are willing. Let me marry my dead, then listen to me and intercede with Ephrem son of Zohar on my behalf so that he can sell me the Machpella cave that belongs to him and is at the end of his field. Ask him to sell it to me for the full price as a burial place. among you Ephrem the Hittite was sitting among his people and answered Abraham in the ears of all the Hittites who had come to the gate of his city no my Lord said listen to me I give you the field and I give you the cave that is in it I give it to you In the presence of my people, rebury your dead.
Abraham bowed before the people of the land and said to Ephrem when he heard me, listen to me if you want. Pay the price of the field, accept it from me so I can bury my dead there Ephrem answered Abraham, listen to me my Lord, the land is worth 400 shekels of silver but what is that between you and me bury your dead Abraham accepted Ephrem's terms and weighed for him the price which he had set in the presence of the Hittites, 400 shekels of silver according to the current weight among the merchants, so that the field of Ephron and markipella near mamre, both the field and the cave in it and all the trees in it of the boundaries of the field was given to Abraham as his property and the presence of all the Hittites who had arrived at the gate of the city after Abraham buried his wife Sarah in the cave in the field of Machpella near Mamrei which is Hebron in the land of Canaan, thus The field in the cave was given to Abraham by the Hittites as a burial place Genesis chapter 24.
Abraham was already very old and the Lord had blessed him in everything, he said to the eldest servant of his house, He who was in charge of everything had put your hand under my thigh, I want you to swear by the Lord, god of heaven and god of the earth, that you will not get a wife for my son from the daughters of the Canaanites among whom I live, but that you will take it. Go to my country and my own relatives and find a wife for my son Isaac. The servant asked him: What happens if the woman does not want to return with me to this land?
Should I take your child back to the country where you come from? Make sure that you do not take my son there Abraham said the Lord God of heaven who brought me out of my father's house in my native land and who spoke to me and promised me under oath saying to your descendants I will give this land he will send his Angel before you so that you can get a wife for my son from there, if the woman does not want to return to you, then you will be released from this oath of mine, only do not take my son there, so the servant put his hand under . the thigh of his master Abraham and made him an oath on this matter, then the servant left, taking with him 10 camels of his masters loaded with all kinds of his master's goods, he left for Aram naharain and headed to the city. from nehor he made the camels kneel near the well outside the city it was towards evening when the women went out to draw water then he prayed Lord God of my master Abraham make me successful today and show kindness to my master Abraham look at me standing next to this spring and the daughters of the townspeople are going out to draw water.
It may be that when I say to a young woman please lower your jug ​​so she can drink and she tells me drink and I will also water your camels. Let her be the one you have chosen for your servant Isaac, so I will know that you have shown kindness to my master before he finished praying. Rebekah came out with her pitcher on her shoulder, she was the daughter of both of them, fuel, the son of Milka, who was the wife of Abraham's brother Nehor, the woman was very beautiful, a virgin, no man had ever slept with her, she went down to the spring, filled her jar and came up again.
The servant hurried to meet her and said please give me some water from your jar, drink my Lord, he said and quickly lowered the jar to her hands and gave her a drink. After having given her a drink, he said: Me too. I will draw water for your camels until they have enough to drink, so she quickly emptied her jar into the trough she ran back to the well to draw more water and drew enough for all her camels without saying a word the man watched her carefully to see if the Lord had his journey been successful or not when the camels finished drinking the man took out a gold nose ring weighing a Becca and two gold bracelets weighing 10 shekels, then he asked whose daughter are you, please tell me, Is there room in your father's house for us to spend the night?
She answered him: I am the daughter of Bethuel, the son who milks one bored nehor and she added: we have plenty of straw and fodder, as well as space for you to spend the night. Then the man bowed down and worshiped the Lord, saying: Praise the Lord, the god of my lord Abraham, who has not forsaken his goodness! and faithfulness to my master, since the Lord has guided me on the journey to the house of my Master's relatives, the young woman ran and told these things to her mother's house. Now Rebecca had a brother named Laban and he hurried to the man at the spring, as soon as he saw the ring in the nose and the bracelets on his sister's arms and heard Rebecca tell what the man told her, He went out to the man and found him standing by the camels near the spring, come, bless you.
For the Lord said why are you standing here? I prepared the house in a place for the camels so the man went to the house and they unloaded the camels straw and fodder for the camels and water for him and his men to wash his feet, then they put food in front of him, but he said: no I will eat until I have told you what I have to say, then tell us. Laban said, then he said: I am Abraham's servant, the Lord has blessed meI love abundantly and have become rich. He has given him sheep and herds, silver and gold, male and female servants, camels and donkeys.
Sarah, my master's wife, has borne him a son in his old age and has given him everything he owns and my master made me swear and said: I must not get a wife for my son from the daughters of the Canaanites in whose land alive, but to go to my father's family in my own clan and get a wife for my son. Then I asked my master what happens if the woman does not return with him. He replied: The Lord whom I have walked faithfully before will send his angel with you and make your journey a success so that you can get a wife for my son from my own clan and from my father's family.
You will be free from my oath if when you go to my clan they refuse to give it to you then you will be free from my oath when I arrived at the spring today I said Lord God of my master Abraham if you please grant success to the journey I have come on Look, I am standing next to this spring, if a young woman comes out to draw water and I say please let me drink some water from your jug ​​and if she says to me, drink and I will draw water for your camels too. she is the one that the Lord has chosen for my son I love before I finished praying in my heart Rebecca came out with her pitcher on her shoulder she went down to the spring and drew water and I said please give me a drink she quickly lowered her pitcher from her shoulder and she said, drink and I will water your camels too, so I drank and she watered the camels.
I also asked her whose daughter are you, she said, daughter bethuel Son of Nahor who miscarried her so I put the ring in her nose and the bracelets on her arms and I bowed down and worshiped the Lord I praised the Lord the god of my lord Abraham who had guided me on the right path to get my master's brother's granddaughter for his son now if you show kindness and faithfulness to my master tell me and if not, tell me so I know where to go Laban and Bethuel answered this is from the Lord no we can tell her nothing.
One way or another, here is Rebekah, take her and go and let her become the wife of your master's son, as the Lord has commanded. When Abraham's servant heard what they were saying, he prostrated himself on the ground before the Lord and then the servant took out gold. and silver jewelry and clothing and gave them to Rebekah, he also gave expensive gifts to his brother and his mother, then he and the men who were with him ate and drank and spent the night there when they got up in the morning Next, he said send me on my way to my master but his brother and mother replied let the girl stay with us for about 10 days or so then you can go but he told them don't stop me now that the Lord has granted success to me. trip Send Me on my way so I can go to my teacher, then they said let's call the young girl and ask her about it, so they called Rebecca and asked her if you will go with this man.
I'll go, he said, so they sent her sister Rebecca with her. walked along with her nurse and Abraham's servant and his men and blessed Rebekah and said to her: our sister, may you increase to thousands and thousands, may your descendants possess the cities of their enemies, then Rebekah and her entourage prepared themselves, they mounted on the camels and left. She returned to the man, so the servant took Rebecca and left. Now Isaac had come from Beer Lahai. Roy, because he lived in the Negev, went out to the field one afternoon to meditate and when he looked up he saw camels approaching.
Rebecca also looked up and saw Isaac, she got off her camel and asked the servant who is that man in the field who is coming to meet us, he is my lord, the servant replied, then she took her veil and covered herself. , then the servant told Isaac everything he had done. Isaac brought her. in his mother Sarah's tent and married Rebekah, so she became his wife and he loved her and Isaac was comforted after his mother's death Genesis chapter 25. Abraham had taken another wife whose name was Katura her gave birth to him Zimran jack Shan Medan Midian ishbach and shua jackshan was the father of Sheba and Dadan the descendants of Dedan were the Asherites the Lechuceites and Eliomites the sons of Midian were IFA effer hanok Abita and Elda all these were descendants of Keturah Abraham le He left everything he owned to Isaac but while he was still alive he gave gifts to the children of his concubines and sent them away from his son Isaac to the land of the East Abraham lived 175 years then Abraham breathed his last and died at a good old age being a an old man and full of years and he was gathered his people his sons Isaac and Ishmael buried him in the cave of Machpelah near Mamrei in the field of Ephrem son of Nahor the Hittite the field that Abraham had bought from the Hittites there Abraham was buried with his wife Sarah after the death of Abraham God blessed his son Isaac who then lived near La Hai Roy beer This is the account of the family line of Ishmael, Abraham's son, who Sarah's slave Hagar the Egyptian , gave to Abraham these are the names of the sons of Ishmael listed in the order of their birth the firstborn of Ishmael Kadar adbiel mibsum mishma Duma Masa Haddad timah jaitour nafish and kedima these were the sons of Ishmael and these are the names of the 12 tribal rulers according to their settlements and camps.
Ishmael lived 137 years, breathed his last and died and was gathered into his village, his descendants settled in the area from Havilah to the coast near the eastern border of Egypt as you go towards the coast and lived in hostility towards all the tribes related to them. This is the account of the family line of Isaac, the son of Abraham. Abraham became the father of Isaac and Isaac was 40 years old when he married Rebekah daughter of Bethuel the Aramean of Patton arum and sister of Laban the Aramean Isaac prayed to the Lord for his wife because she had no children the Lord answered his prayer and His wife Rebekah became pregnant the babies were pushing inside her and she said why is this happening to me so she went to consult the Lord the Lord told her two nations are in your womb and two peoples from within you will be separated one people will be stronger that the other and the older one will serve the younger one.
When the time came for her to give birth, there were twins in her womb. The first one that came out was red and her whole body was like a hairy dress. That's why they called him Esau. In honor of this, his brother came out. with his hand grasping Esau's heel that is why they called him Jacob Isaac was 60 years old when Rebekah gave birth to them the children grew up and Esau became a skilled hunter a man of the open field while Jacob was content to stay at home among the stores Isaac, who liked hunting, loved Esau, but Rebekah loved Jacob.
Once, when Jacob was cooking a stew, Esau came from the field hungry and said to Jacob, quick, let me eat some of that red stew. . I'm hungry. that's why he was also called Edom Jacob responded first sell me your birthright look I'm about to die Esau said what's the use of the birthright but Jacob said swear to me first so he swore an oath by selling his birthright to Jacob so Jacob gave Esau some of bread and a stew of lentils which he ate and drank and then got up and left, so Esau despised his birthright Genesis chapter 26.
Now there was a famine in the land in addition to the previous famine in the time of Abraham and Isaac went to the king Abimelech. of the Philistines in garage the Lord appeared to Isaac and said do not go down to Egypt live in the land where I tell you to live stay in this land for a while and I will be with you and I will bless you for you and your Offspring I will give all these lands and I will confirm the oath I swore to your father Abraham. I will make your descendants as numerous as the stars of heaven and I will give them all these lands and through your descendants all the nations of the Earth will be blessed because Abraham obeyed me and did everything I asked him, keeping my commandments, my decrees and my instructions.
That's why Isaac stayed in garar when the men of that place asked him about his wife. He said that she is my sister because he was afraid to say that she is my wife. He thought that the men of this place could kill me because of Rebekah because she is beautiful when Isaac It had been there for a long time. Abimelech The king of the Philistines looked out of a window and saw Isaac caressing his wife Rebekah, so Abimelech called Isaac and said to him. She is really your wife why did you say she is my sister Isaac replied because I thought I could lose my life because of her then Abimelech said what is this that you have done to us one of the men could very well have slept with your wife and you would have brought guilt upon us then Abimelech gave orders to all the people anyone who harms this man or his wife will surely be executed Isaac planted crops in that land and the same year he harvested a hundred times more because the Lord blessed him The Man became rich and his wealth continued Growing until he became very rich, he had so many sheep and cattle and servants that the Philistines envied him, so that all the wells that his father's servant had dug in the time of his father Abraham, the Philistines covered them up, filling them with water.
Then the land Abimelech said to Isaac. get away from us you have become too powerful for us so Isaac left there and camped in the valley of garar where he settled Isaac reopened the wells that had been dug in the time of his father Abraham which the Philistines had stopped after Abraham's death and he gave them the same names that their father had given them. Isaac's servants dug in the valley and discovered a well of fresh water there, but the shepherds of Garar quarreled with Isaac's and said that the water is ours. He called the well essec because they argued with it, then they dug another well, but they also fought over that one, so he called it sitna, he moved on from there and dug another well and no one argued over it.
He called it Rehoboth, now saying the Lord. He has given us a place and we will flourish in the land from there he went up to Beersheba that night the Lord appeared to him and said I am the god of your father Abraham do not be afraid for I am with you I will bless you and I will increase the number of your descendants by love to my servant Abraham Isaac built there an altar and called on the name of the Lord there he pitched his tent and there his servants dug a well while Abimelech had come to him from garar with ahazath his staff The counselor and fikal, the commander of his forces, Isaac asked them why you came to me if you were hostile to me and sent me away.
They replied that we saw clearly that the Lord was with you, so we said that there should be a sworn agreement between us. between us and you, let us make a treaty with you that you will not do us any harm, just as we did not harm you, but we always treated you well and bid you farewell in peace and now you are blessed by the Lord Isaac, then we had a party to they. and they ate and drank early the next morning the men swore to each other so Isaac sent them away and they left peacefully that day Isaac's servants came and told him about the well they had dug they said we had found water he called it Sheba and To this day the name of the town has been Beersheba when Esau was 40 years old he married Judith daughter of Birai the Hittite and also the mathematical base daughter of Elon the Hittite were a source of pain for Isaac and Rebekah Genesis chapter 27. when Isaac He was old and his eyes were so weak that he could no longer see.
He called Esau his eldest son and said to him, "My son, here I am." Isaac replied, "I am already an old man and I do not know the day of my death. Now, take your equipment, your quiver and your bow and go out into the open field and hunt me some game, prepare me the kind of tasty food that I like and bring it to me to eat and I will give it to you. my blessing before I die now Rebecca was

listening

as Isaac spoke to her son Esau when Esau went to the open field to hunt and bring him back Rebecca said to her son Jacob look, I heard your father say to your brother Esau, bring me some hunting and prepare a delicious meal for me to eat so that I can give you my blessing in the presence of the Lord before I die now my son, listen carefully and do as I tell you, go out to the flock and bring me two chosen goats so that I can prepare a delicious food for your father just the way he likes it and then take it to your father so he can eat it and give you his blessing before he dies.
Jacob said to Rebekah his mother, but my brother Esau is a hairy man, while I have. soft skin and if my father touched me it would seem like I was cheating on him and he would bring a curse on me instead of a blessing his mother told him my son let the curse fall on me just do as I say go and bring them Then he went to looked for them and brought them to his mother and she prepared a delicious meal just the way his father liked it. Then Rebekah took the best clothes of Esau, her eldest son, that she had in the house and put them on her youngest son.
Jacob she also covered her hands on the smooth part of his neck with the goat skins then she gave her son Jacob the tasty food and the bread that she had made he went to his father and said my father yes my son he answered who is Jacob said to his father I am Esau your firstborn I have done as you told me please sit down and eat my game so that you can give me your blessing Isaac asked his son how did you find him so soon my son the Lord your God gave me success responded then Isaac said to Jacob come closer so I can touch you my son to know if you are really my son Esau or not Jacob approached his father Isaac who touched him and said the voice is the voice of Jacob but the hands are the hands of Esau he did not recognize him because hissilver that he bought for his children. of Hamor father of Shechem the land where he pitched his tent there he built an altar and called it El Elway Israel Genesis chapter 34.
Now Dinah the daughter that Leah had given to Jacob went out to visit the women of the land when Shechem son of Hamur The Hivite, the ruler of that area, saw her, took her and raped her. His heart was drawn to Dinah, daughter of Jacob. He loved the young woman and spoke to her tenderly. Shechem said to his father, Hamor, bring this girl to Me as My wife. When Jacob heard that his daughter Dinah had been defiled, his sons were in the field with their cattle, so he did nothing about it until they returned home. Then Hamor, Shechem's father, went out to talk to Jacob while Jacob's sons had returned from the fields.
As soon as they found out what had happened they were shocked and angry because Shechem had done an atrocity in Israel by sleeping with Jacob's daughter, something that should not be done, he told them: "My son Shechem has his heart set on your daughter, please give her." to him as his wife enter Mary with us give us your daughters and take our daughters for yourself you can settle among us the land is open for you live in it trade in it and acquire property in it then Shechem said to the father and brothers of Dina, let them leave, I will find favor in your eyes and I will give you everything you ask of me, make the bride price and the gift that I must bring as big as you want and I will pay you whatever you ask of me, just give me the young woman as a wife because her sister Dina He had defiled himself.
The sons of Jacob responded deceitfully while speaking to Shechem and their father Hemor told them we cannot do such a thing. We cannot give our sister to a man who is not circumcised. That would be a shame for us. We will make an agreement with you with the only one. provided that you be like us by circumcising all your males, then we will give you our daughters and we will take your daughters for ourselves, we will settle among you and we will be one people with you. But if you do not agree to circumcise, we will take our sister and leave.
His proposal seemed good to Hamor and his son Shechem, the young man who was the most honest of all his father's family, did not take long to do what they said because he was delighted with the daughter. of Jacob, so Hamor and his son Shechem went to the gate of their city to speak with the men of their city. These men are friendly to us and said: let them live in our land and trade in it. The earth has a lot of space. for them we can marry their daughters and they can marry ours, but the men will agree to live with us as one people only on the condition that our men are circumcised like themselves, not their cattle will be their property and all their others Animals will become ours, so let us accept their terms and they will settle among us.
All the men who came out of the city gate agreed with him or with his son Shechem and every male in the city was circumcised three days later, while all of them were still in pain, two of Jacob's sons, Simeon and Levi, Dinah's brothers, took their swords and attacked the unprepared city, killing all the men. They put Hamor and his son Shechem to the sword and took Dinah from the house of Shechem and left the sons of Jacob. They came over the corpses and looted the city where their sister had been desecrated. They seized their flocks in herds and donkeys and all the rest of them in the city and in the field.
They took all their wealth and all their women and children, leading us to plunder everything that was in the houses. Then Jacob said to Simeon and Levi. you have brought trouble upon me. By making me unpleasant to the Canaanites and the parasites, the people who live in this land are few and if they join forces against me and attack me, I and my house will be destroyed, but they responded that if I had treated our sister like a prostitute. Genesis chapter 35 then God said to Jacob go up to Bethel and settle there and build there an altar to the God who appeared to you when you were fleeing from your brother Esau then Jacob said to his household and to all who were with him, get rid of the Gods You have strangers with you and purify yourselves and change your clothes, then come, let us go up to Bethel or I will build an altar to the God who answered me in the day of my trouble and who has been with me wherever I have gone so that he gave Jacob all the gods foreigners who had and the rings in their ears and Jacob buried them under the oak in Shechem then they left and the terror of God fell on the people around them so that no one would pursue them Jacob and all the people.
With him he came to covet what is Bethel in the land of Canaan there he built an altar and called The Place Bethel because it was there where God revealed Himself to him when he was fleeing from his brother now Deborah, Rebekah's nurse died and was buried under the yoke outside from Bethel, which is why he was called Alan Bakhuff after Jacob returned from Patton Arum. God appeared to him again and blessed him. God told him: your name is Jacob, but you will no longer be called Jacob, your name will be Israel, so he called him.
Israel and God said to him: I am God Almighty, be fruitful and increase in number. A nation and a community of nations will come from you, and there will be kings among your descendants. The land that I gave to Abraham and Isaac I also give to you and will give it to you. give this land to your descendants after you, then God went up from him to the place where he had spoken with him. Jacob set up a pillar of stone in the place where God had spoken with him and poured a drink offering on it and also poured oil on it.
Then Jacob called the place where God had spoken with him Bethel. Then they left Bethel when there was still some distance away. Ephrathah Rachel began to give birth and had great difficulty and as she had great difficulty giving birth the Midwife said to her do not despair because you have another son while she breathed her last because she was dying she called her son Ben onai but her father named him Benjamin then Rachel died and was buried on the road to Ephrathah which is Bethlehem over her tomb Jacob erected a pillar and to this day that pillar marks Rachel's tomb.
Israel went ahead and set up shop beyond McDowell Eater while Israel lived in that region. Reuben went in and slept with his father's concubine, Bilhah, and Israel found out. Jacob had 12 sons. the sons of Leah Reuben the firstborn of Jacob Simeon Levi Judah Issachar and Zebulun the sons of Rachel Joseph and Benjamin the sons of Rachel's handmaid Bilha Dan and Naphtali the sons of Leah's handmaid Zilpah Gad and Asher these were the sons of Jacob who were born to him in Patton arum Jacob returned home to his father Isaac and his mother Ray near Kiryat Arba, which is Hebron, where Abraham and Isaac had stayed.

Jacob lived in the land where his father had remained the land of Canaan this is the account of the family lineage of Jacob Joseph a young man of 17 years old he was tending the flocks with his brothers, the sons of Bilhah and the sons of Zilpah, his father's wives, and he brought his father a bad report about them. Now Israel loved Joseph more than any of his other sons because he was born to him in his old age and he made him an ornate cloak. When his brothers saw that their father loved him more than any of them, they hated him and could not address him. kind word.
Joseph had a dream and when he told it to his brothers, they hated him even more. He told them: listen to this dream I had. We were tying sheaves of grain in the field when suddenly my sheaf rose and stood while her sheaves gathered around mine and bowed before her. His brother said to him: do you intend to reign? We, well, actually rule us and they hated him even more because of his dream and what he had said. Then he had another dream and told it to his brothers. Listen, he said. I had another dream and this time the sun and the moon and the stars bowed before me when he said to his father and his brothers his father rebuked him and said: what is this dream that You saw?
Well, your mother, I and your brothers actually came and prostrated ourselves on the ground before you, his brothers were jealous. from him but his father had the matter in mind now his brothers had gone to graze their father's flocks near Shechem and Israel said to Joseph how do you know that your brothers are grazing the flocks near Shechem come I will send you to them very well he answered and said to him: go and see if everything is well with your brothers and with the flocks and tell me and then he sent him away from the valley of Hebron when Joseph arrived at Shechem a man found him wandering in the fields and asked him what are you doing? searching, he answered: I am looking for my brothers, can you tell me where their flocks graze?
They have moved from here. The man responded. I heard them say, let's go to Dothan, so Joseph went after his brothers and they found them near Dothan but they saw him in the distance and before he reached them they planned to kill him here comes that dreamer they said to each other come now let's kill him and throw him into one of the these cisterns and let's say that a ferocious animal devoured him then we will see what comes from his dreams when Rubén heard this he tried to rescue him from their hands let's not take his life he said don't spill blood throw him into this cistern here in the desert and no Rubén put him He put his hand on it and said this to rescue him from them and take him back to his father, so when Joseph came to his brothers, they stripped him of his cloak, they were Nate, the cloak he was wearing and they took it and threw it into the sea. cistern the cistern was empty there was no water in it when they sat down to eat they looked up and saw a caravan of Ishmaelites coming from Gilead their camels were loaded with spices, balm and myrrh and they were on their way to take them down to Egypt Judas saidforgotten and famine will ravage the land, abundance in the land will not be remembered because the famine that will follow will be so severe that The dream given to Pharaoh in two forms is that the matter has been firmly decided by God and God He will do it soon and now let Pharaoh find a prudent and wise man and put him in charge of the land of Egypt, let Pharaoh appoint Commissioners over the land to take a fifth of the Harvest of Egypt during the seven years of plenty.
Collect all the food of these good years to come and store the grain under the authority of Pharaoh to be kept in the cities for food. This food must be kept in reserve so that the country can be used during the seven years of famine that will come upon Egypt. so that the country is not ruined by famine. The plan seemed good to Pharaoh and all of his officials, so Pharaoh asked them: Can we? find someone like this man, one in whom the spirit of God is, then Pharaoh said to Joseph, since God has made all this known to you, there is no one as Discerning and wise as you, you should be in charge of my Palace and all my people are to submit to your orders only with respect to the throne I will be greater than you, then Pharaoh said to Joseph.
I hereby put you in charge of the entire land of Egypt, then Pharaoh took the ring from his finger and put it on Joseph's finger. He dressed him in fine linen robes and put a gold chain around his neck. He made him ride in a chariot as his second-in-command and the people shouted in front of him. So he put him in charge of the entire land of Egypt. Then Pharaoh said. To Joseph I am Pharaoh but without your word no one will lift hand or foot in all Egypt Pharaoh gave Joseph the name Zephanath Panea and gave him Aznath daughter of Potiphera priest of On to be his wife and Joseph went throughout the land of Egypt Joseph was 30 years old when he entered the service of Pharaoh king of Egypt and Joseph left Pharaoh's presence and traveled throughout Egypt during the seven years of plenty the land produced in abundance Joseph collected all the food produced in those seven years of plenty in Egypt and stored in the cities of each city he put the food grown in the surrounding fields.
Joseph stored up enormous quantities of grain like the sand of the sea, it was so much that he stopped keeping records because it was incalculable before the years of famine. Two sons came who were born to Joseph from Azanat. Daughter of Potiphera, Joseph's priest named his firstborn Manasseh and said it is because God has made me forget all my problems and all my father's house. The second son named him Ephraim and said that It is because God has made me fruitful in the land of my suffering the seven years of plenty in Egypt came to an end and the seven years of famine began just as Joseph had said that there was famine in all other lands but in all the land of Egypt had food when all of Egypt began to feel hungry the people cried out to Pharaoh for food then Pharaoh told all the Egyptians to go to Joseph and do what he tells you when the famine had spread throughout the country Joseph opened the warehouses and he sold grain to the Egyptians because the famine was severe throughout Egypt and everyone came to Egypt to buy grain from Joseph because the famine was severe everywhere Genesis chapter 42.
When Jacob knew that there was grain in Egypt he told his children why do you keep looking at each other he continued, I have heard that there is grain in Egypt, go down there and buy some for us so that we can live and not die, then 10 of Joseph's brothers went down to buy grain from Egypt, but Jacob did not He sent Benjamin's brother Joseph. with the others because he was afraid that harm might happen to him. Then the children of Israel were among those who went to buy grain because there was a famine in the land of Canaan.
Furthermore, now Joseph was the governor of the land, the person who sold grain to all his people. people so when Joseph's brothers arrived they bowed before him with their faces to the ground, as soon as Joseph saw his brothers he recognized them but he pretended to be a stranger and spoke harshly to them where are you from he asked from the land of Canaan they answered to buy food, although Joseph recognized his brothers, they did not recognize him, so he remembered his dreams about them and told them, you are spies, come and see where our land is unprotected, no, my lord, your servants responded, they have come to buy food, we are all children of one man, your servants are honest men, not spies, he did not tell them, you have come to see where our land is unprotected, but they responded that his servants were 12 brothers, the sons of a man who lives in the land of Canaan, the youngest is now with our father. and one is no longer there Joseph told them it is just as I told you, you are spies and this is how You will be tested as surely as Pharaoh lives.
You will not leave this place unless your younger brother comes here. Send one of your people to find your brother. The rest of you will be held in prison so that your words will be tested to see if you are telling the truth, if you are not, as sure as Pharaoh lives, you are spies and he put you all in custody for three days, on the third day Joseph told them: do this and you will live because I fear God if you are honest men. Let one of your brothers stay here in prison while the rest of you go and bring grain to your hungry homes, but you must bring his younger brother to me so that your words may be verified and so that you do not die.
This they proceeded to do. They said to each other, surely we are being punished because of our brother. We saw how distressed he was when he begged us for his life, but we didn't listen to him, that's why this anguish has come to us. Ruben responded, didn't I tell you? sin against the child but you did not want to listen now we must account for his blood they did not realize that Joseph could understand them since he was using an interpreter he walked away from them and began to cry but then he returned and spoke He again had Simeon taken away from them and tie him in front of his eyes.
Joseph gave orders to fill their bags with grain, put each man's money in his sack, and give them provisions for their journey. After this was done, they loaded their grain. on their donkeys and went to the place where they stopped to spend the night, one of them opened his sack to get food for his donkey and saw his silver in the mouth of his sack. My money has been returned. He said to his brothers. Here it is. in my sack their hearts sank and they turned to each other trembling and said what is this that God has done to us when they came to their father Jacob in the land of Canaan they told him everything that had happened to them the man said that he was Lord He spoke harshly to us about the land and treated us as if we were spying on the land, but we told him we are honest men, we are not spies, we were twelve brothers, sons of one father, one is no longer here and the youngest is now with our father in Canaan, so the man who was Lord of the land told us this is how I will know if you are honest men, leave one of your brothers here with me and take food for your hungry families and go, but bring your younger brother. to me so that I know that you are not spies but honest men then I will return your brother to you and you can trade in the land while they emptied their sacks there and each man's sack was his bag of silver when they and their father saw the bags of money they were scared their father Jacob told them you have deprived me of my children Joseph no longer exists and Simeon no longer exists and now you want to take Benjamin everything is against me so Reuben told his father can you put My two sons will die if you don't I bring them, entrust him to my care and I will bring him back, but Jacob said my son will not go there with you, his brother is dead and he is the only one left if it comes to his worst on the journey you are taking, you will bring my gray head to the Grave with sadness.
Genesis chapter 43. Now the famine was still severe in the land, so when they had eaten all the grain that they had brought from Egypt to their father. He told them to go back and buy us some more food but Judas told him the man solemnly warned us you will not see my face again unless your brother is with you if you send our brother with us we will go down and buy food for you, but if not you send, we will not go down because the man told us: you will not see my face again unless your brother is with you.
Israel asked why you brought this problem to me by telling the man that you had another brother they said the man questioned us in detail about us and our family is that your father is still alive he asked us if you have another brother we simply answered his questions how are we going to know him I would say bring your brother here then Judah said to Israel His father send the child with me and we will leave immediately so that we, you and our children may live and not die. I myself will guarantee his safety. You can hold me personally responsible for it if I don't bring it to you. and put it here before you I will bear the guilt before you all my life as it is if we had not delayed we could have gone and returned twice so their father Israel told them if it must be then do this put some of the best products of the land in your bags and take them as a gift to the man a little balm and a little honey some spices and myrrh some pistachios and almonds take with you double the amount of silver because you must return the silver that was put back into the mouth of your sacks maybe it was a mistake take your brother too and return to the man immediately and may God Almighty grant you Mercy before the man to let your other brother and Benjamin return to you as for me, if I am heartbroken, I am heartbroken , then the men took the gifts and doubled the amount of silver and Benjamin also hurried down to Egypt and presented themselves to Joseph when Joseph saw Benjamin with him, he told the steward of his house to take these men. to my house to sacrifice an animal and prepare a meal they are going to eat with me at noon the man did what Joseph told him and took the men to Joseph's house now the men were scared when they took them to his house they thought they had brought us here because of the money that they put back in our sacks the first time, they want to attack us and dominate us and take us as slaves and take away our donkeys, so they approached Joseph's steward and spoke to him at the entrance of the house, we beg for Your forgiveness, Sir, they said that we came here the first time to buy food, but at the place where we stopped to spend the night we opened our sacks and each of us found his silver of the exact weight in the mouth of his sack, so we brought. return it to us we have also brought additional money to buy food we don't know who put our money in our bags okay he said don't be afraid your God your father's god has given you a treasure in your sex I received your money then he took Simeon the butler out to them He took the men to Joseph's house, gave them water to wash their feet, and gave them fodder for their donkeys.
They prepared their gifts for Joseph's arrival at noon because they heard that they were going to eat there. When Joseph arrived home, they presented the gifts to him. which they had brought into the house and bowed before him to the ground. He asked them how they were and then said: How was his old father that you told me about? Is he still alive? They answered: Our father's servant is still alive and well and they bowed prostratingly before him while he looked around and saw his brother Benjamin, his own mother's son, he asked: Is this your younger brother, of whom you told me? and he said may God have mercy on you.
My son, deeply moved when he saw his brother Joseph, hurriedly left and looked for a place to cry. He entered his private room and there he cried after washing his face. He came out with control. He said, Serve the food. Only the brothers alone and the Egyptians who ate with him served him. alone because the Egyptians could not eat with the Hebrews because that is detestable to the Egyptians. The men had sat before him in order of age from the oldest to the youngest and looked at each other. others in amazement when they were served portions from Joseph's table, Benjamin's portion was five times larger than that of the others, so they ate and drank generously with him Genesis chapter 44.
Now Joseph gave these instructions to the steward of his house , I filled the men's sacks with as much food as they could carry and I put each man's silver in the mouth of his sack then I put my silver cup in the mouth of the youngest sack along with the silver for his grain and did the same. What Joseph said at dawn on The men were sent out with their donkeys, they had not gone far from the city when Joseph said to a steward, go immediately after those men and when you catch up with him, tell them why you have repaid good with evil, its not this? the cup that my master drinks from and that he also uses to divine this is an evil thing that you have done when you reached them he repeated these words to them but they told him why does my Lord say such things far from your servants do something like that, we even brought you from the land of Canaan the silver that we find inside the mouths of our sacks, so why would we steal silver or gold from the house of your Lord?
If any of your servants has found a habit, he will die and the rest of us will be slaves of my Lord. Very well, then he said, let it be as you say, whoever is found to have it will become my slave. The rest will be free of guilt. Each one quickly went down. his sack to the ground andThen he opened the steward and proceeded to search, beginning with the eldest and ending with the youngest, and the cup was found in Benjamin's sack. Before this, they tore their clothes, then they all loaded their donkeys and returned to the city.
Joseph was still in the house when Judah and His brothers came in and threw themselves on the ground in front of him. Joseph told them what this is that you have done. Don't you know that a man like me can find out things by divination? What can we tell my lord? Judah answered what? we can say how we can prove our innocence God has discovered the guilt of your servant now we are slaves of my Lord ourselves and the one who had the cup that Joseph said far be it from me to do such a thing only the man who was found to have the cup will become in my slave the rest of you return to your father in peace then Judah came to him and said: forgive your servant, my Lord, let me speak a word to my Lord, although do not be angry with your servant.
You are equal to Pharaoh himself, my Lord asked his servants if you have a father or a brother and we answered that we have an elderly father and a young son was born to him in his old age, his brother is dead and he is the only one of his sons. mother left and his father loves him so you told your servants to bring him to me so that I can see for myself and we told my Lord the boy cannot leave his father if he leaves him his father will die but you told them your servants unless your younger brother comes down with you you will not see my face again when we returned to your servant my father we told him what my Lord had said then our father said go back and buy some more food but we said we can't go down alone if our younger brother is with us we will go we cannot see the man's face unless our younger brother is with us your servant my father told us you know my wife gave me two sons one of them left me and I said: surely they have torn to pieces and I have not seen him since, if you take this one from me too and harm happens to him, you will bring my gray head to the grave in misery, so now, if the child is gone. with us when he returns with your servant my father and if my father, whose life is closely linked to the life of the child, sees that the child is not there, he will die, your servants will bring the gray head of our father to the grave. and pity, your servant guaranteed the safety of the child to my father.
I said that if I don't bring him back to you, I will bear the blame before you, my father, all my life. Then please let your servant remain here as my Lord's slave instead of him. child and let the child return to his brothers how can I return to my father if the child is not with me no, do not let me see the misery that would come upon my father Genesis chapter 45. then Joseph can no longer control himself before all his attendance and He shouted for everyone to get out of my presence although there was no one with Joseph when he made himself known to his brothers and he cried so loudly that the Egyptians heard him in Pharaoh's house and they found out.
Joseph said to his brothers, I am Joseph, he is my father, he is still alive. But his brothers could not answer him because they were terrified of his presence, so Joseph said to his brothers, come to me when they had done so, he said, I am your brother Joseph, the one you sold to Egypt, and now do not be distressed or angry with yourselves for selling me here. because it was to save lives that God sent me before you for two years there has been a famine in the land and for the next five years there will be no plowing or harvesting, but God sent me before you to preserve for you a Remnant in the Land and save your lives through a great Liberation, then it was not you who sent me here, but God, made me father of Pharaoh, Lord of all his life. family in ruler of all Egypt now hurry and return to my father and tell him this is what your son Joseph says God has made me Lord of all Egypt, come to me, do not delay, you will live in the region of Goshen and you will be near.
I, you, your children and grandchildren, your flocks and cows and everything you have, I will provide for you there because there are still five years of famine, otherwise you, your house and all those who belong to you will remain in misery, You can see it for yourself and so on. Can my brother Benjamin, who is really the one speaking to you, tell my father all the honors that have been granted to me in Egypt and everything that you have seen and bring my father here quickly and then he hugged his brother Benjamin and cried and Benjamin cried.
He weptly hugged and kissed all his brothers and wept over them afterwards his brothers talked to him when the news reached Pharaoh's Palace that Joseph's brothers had come to Barrow and all his officials were happy Barrow said to Joseph, tell your brothers Do this, load your animals and return to the land of Canaan and bring your father and your families back to me. I will give you the best of the land of Egypt and you will be able to enjoy the wealth of the land. They are also ordered to tell them what to do. this take some chariots from Egypt for your sons and your wives and bring your father and come, do not worry about your belongings because the best of all Egypt will be yours so the children of Israel did this Joseph gave them chariots as Pharaoh had ordered and he also gave them provisions for their journey, to each of them he gave new clothes, but to Benjamin he gave 300 shekels of silver and five sets of clothes, and this was what he sent to his father ten donkeys loaded with the best things from Egypt. 10 donkeys loaded with grain and bread and other provisions for their journey then he said goodbye to his brothers and when they were leaving he told them not to fight on the road so they went up from Egypt and came to their father Jacob in the land of Canaan they told him that Joseph He is still alive, in fact, he is the ruler of all Egypt.
Jacob was astonished, he did not believe them that when they told him everything that Joseph had told them and when he saw the cards that Joseph had sent to take him back, the spirit of his father Jacob revived and Israel said: I am convinced that my son Joseph He is still alive. I'll go see him before I die. Genesis chapter 46. Then Israel set out with all that was his and when he arrived at Beersheba he offered sacrifices. to the god of his father Isaac and God spoke to Israel in a dream at night and said Jacob Jacob here I am he answered I am God the god of your father said do not be afraid to go down to Egypt because I will make you a great nation there I will go down to Egypt with you and I will certainly make you return and Joseph's own hand will close your eyes then Jacob left Beersheba and the children of Israel took their father Jacob and his sons and their wives in the chariots that Pharaoh had sent to transport him so Jacob with all his descendants went to Egypt taking with them their livestock in the possessions they had acquired in Canaan Jacob brought with him to Egypt his sons and grandsons and his daughters and granddaughters all his descendants these are the names of the children of Israel Jacob and his descendants who Reuben the firstborn of Jacob the sons of Reuben went to Egypt hanuk palu hezron and Carmi the sons of Simeon jamuel Jamin Ohad Joachim Zohar and shaol the son of a Canaanite woman the sons of Levi Gershon kolhoth and murari the sons of Judah ER Onan Sheila Pérez and Zara but Er and Onan had died in the land of Canaan the sons of Paris hezron and hamul the sons of issachar Tola Pua jashab and shimran the sons of zebulun zared Elon and Khalil these were the sons that Leah gave to Jacob in patanaram also of his daughter Dinah, these sons and daughters of his were 33 in all the children of God zefan haggai shunai esbon arai erodai and aralai the children of Asher imna ishiba ishvi and baraya their sister was Sarah the children of baraya Heber and malkiel these were the children who were born to Jacob by zilpah that Laban had given to his daughter Leah 16 in all the children of Rachel Jacob's wife Joseph and Benjamin in Egypt Manasseh and Ephraim were born to Joseph by asnat Daughter of potaphera priest of Benjamin's own children Bella Baker ashbel jarah Naman and Ard these were the sons of Rachel who were born to Jacob 14 in all the son of Dan Hashim the sons of Naphtali jaziel gunai jezer and shilam these were the sons born to Jacob by bilha whom Laban had given to his daughter Rachel seven and all those who went to Egypt with Jacob those who were his direct descendants without counting his son's wives were 66 people with the two sons who had been born to Joseph in Egypt the members of Jacob's family who were to Egypt they were 70 in all now Jacob sent Judah ahead of him to Joseph to get directions to Goshen when they arrived in the region of Goshen Joseph had his chariot ready and went to Goshen to meet his father Israel as soon as Joseph appeared before him , threw hugged his father and cried for a long time Israel said to Joseph now I am ready to die since I have seen for myself that you are still alive and Joseph said to his brothers in his father's house I will go up and talk to Pharaoh and I will tell him that my brothers and my father's house who lived in the land of Canaan have come to me, the men are shepherds, they take care of the livestock and have brought their sheep and herds and everything they own, when Pharaoh calls you and I asked you.
What is your occupation? You must respond. Your servants have tended the livestock from our childhood onwards just as our fathers did. Then you will be allowed to settle in the region of Goshen or all the shepherds are detestable to the Egyptians. Genesis chapter 47. Joseph went and told Pharaoh. My father and my brothers with their flocks and herds and everything they possess have come from the land of Canaan and are now in Goshen. He chose five of his brothers and presented them before Pharaoh. Pharaoh asked the brothers what their occupation is. His servants are shepherds. They answered Pharaoh just as their parents were.
They also told him that we have come to live here for a while because the famine is severe in Canaan and the flocks of your servants do not have pastures like this. now please let your servants settle in Goshen Barrow said to Joseph your father and your brothers have come to you in the land of Egypt is before you settle your father and your brothers in the best part of the land let them live in Goshen and if you know of any among them with special ability put him in charge of my own livestock then Joseph brought his father Jacob and presented him before Pharaoh after Jacob blessed Pharaoh.
Pharaoh asked him how old you are and Jacob told Pharaoh the years of my pilgrimage are 130. My years have been few and difficult and they are not equal. During the years of my parents' pilgrimage, Jacob blessed Pharaoh and left his presence, so Joseph settled his father and brothers in Egypt and gave them property in the best part of the land, the district of Ramses, such as the Pharaoh ordered, Joseph also provided his father and his brothers throughout his father's house with food according to the number of his sons, there was no food, however, in the entire region because the famine was severe, both Egypt and Canaan They were consumed because of hunger, Joseph collected all the money that was found in Egypt and Canaan in payment for the grain they were buying and took it to Pharaoh's Palace when the money of the people of Egypt and Canaan ran out, all of Egypt came to Joseph and said: Give us food, why should we die before your eyes?
We ran out of all the money, so bring your cattle, said José. I will sell you food in exchange for your livestock, since your money is gone, so they took their livestock to Joseph and he gave them food in exchange for their horses, their sheep and goats, their cattle and donkeys and he brought them during that year with food in exchange for all his livestock when that year was over, they came to him the next year and told him that we cannot hide from our Lord the fact that since our money is gone and our livestock belongs to you there is nothing but for our Lord except our bodies and our land, why must we perish before your eyes? us in our land also for us and our land in exchange for food and we with our land will be slaves of Pharaoh, give us seed so that we may live and not die and that the land will not be desolate, so Joseph bought all the land in Egypt for Pharaoh, the Egyptians one and all sold their fields because the famine was too severe for them, the land became Pharaohs and Joseph reduced the people. to bondage from one end of Egypt to the other, however, he did not buy the land from the priests because they received a regular allocation from Pharaoh and had enough food from the allocation that Pharaoh gave them, so they did not sell their land.
The people, now that I have bought you and your land today for Pharaoh, here is seed so that you can plant the land, but when the harvest comes, give one fifth to Pharaoh and the other four fifths you can keep as seed for the fields. and as food for you, your homes and your children, you have saved Our Lives. They said, "We can find favor in the eyes of Our Lord. We will be slaves to Pharaoh, so Joseph established it as a law over the land in Egypt that is still in effect today." that one fifth of the produce belongs to Pharaoh it was only the land of the priests who did not become Pharaohs now the Israelites settled in Egypt in the region of Goshen they acquired property there and were fruitful and increased greatly in number Jacob lived in Egypt 17 years and the years of his life were 147.
When the time of Israel's death approached, he called his son Joseph and said to him: If I have found favor in your eyes, put your hand under my thigh and promise to give it to me. you will show. goodness and faithfulness do not bury me in Egypt butWhen I rest with my parents marry me outside of Egypt and bury me where they are buried I will do what you say he said swear to me he said then Joseph swore to him and Israel worshiped how he leaned on the top of his staff Genesis chapter 48. some time later they told Joseph that your father is sick, so he took his two sons Manasseh and Ephraim with him when they told Jacob that your son Joseph had come to you.
Israel gathered his strength and sat on the bed Jacob said to Joseph God Almighty appeared to me in Luz in the land of Canaan and there he blessed me and said to me I will make you fruitful and multiply in number I will make you a community of peoples and I will give this land in eternal possession to your descendants after you. Now your two sons who were born to you in Egypt before I came to you here will be counted as mine. Ephraim and Manasseh will be mine, just as Reuben and Simeon are mine every day.
The children born to you after them will be yours and the territory they inherit will be counted in the names of their brothers. When I was returning from Padén, with sadness, Rachel died in the land of Canaan, while we were still on our way a short distance away. from Ephrat so I buried her there next to the road to Ephrat which is Bethlehem when Israel saw Joseph's children he asked who are these are the children that God has given me here Joseph said to his father then Israel said bring them to me so that I bless them now Israel's eyes were failing due to old age and he could barely see so Joseph brought his children close to him and their father kissed and hugged them.
Israel told Joseph he never expected to see his face again and now God has allowed it. I too to see your sons then Joseph took them from Israel's knees and bowed down with his face to the ground and Joseph took them both Ephraim on his right towards the left hand of Israel in Manasseh on his left towards the right hand of Israel and He approached them but Israel extended his right hand and put it on Ephraim's head although he was the youngest and crossing his arms he put his left hand on Manasseh's head although Manasseh was the firstborn.
Then he blessed Joseph and said: May the god before whom my fathers Abraham and Isaac walked faithfully The God who has been my shepherd all my life until this day the angel who has delivered me from all evil may he bless these children that they may be called by my name in the names of Abraham and Isaac of my father and they increase greatly in the land when Joseph saw his father placing his right hand on the head of Ephraim, he was disgusted and took his father's hand to move it from the head of Ephraim to the head of Manasseh.
Joseph said no, my father, this is the firstborn. put your right hand on his head while his father refused and said I know my son, I know that he will also become a people and he will also become great however his younger brother will be older than him and his offspring will become a group of Nations blessed them that day and said in your name Israel will pronounce this blessing that God make you like Ephraim and Manasseh then he put Ephraim before Manasseh then Israel said to Joseph I am about to die but God will be with you and will take you away. return to the land of your fathers and I give you a crag of land more than your brothers the crag that I took from the Amorites with my sword and my bow thank you Genesis chapter 49 then Jacob called his sons and said gather around like this I can tell you what will happen to you in the days to come, gather together and listen, sons of Jacob, listen to your father Israel Reuben, you are my firstborn, my power, the first sign of my strength, excellent in honor, excellent in power, turbulent as the waters, you will not.
No longer Excel because you climbed into your father's bed, into my bed, and desecrated it. Simeon and Levi are brothers, their swords are weapons of violence, do not let me enter his council, do not let me join his assembly because in his anger they have killed men and hamstrung oxen. as they wanted, cursed by their wrath so fierce and their fury so cruel I will scatter them in Jacob and I will scatter them in Israel Judah your brothers will praise you your hand will be on the neck of your enemies your father's children will bow before you you are a lion's cub Judah, you return from the prey, my son, like a lion, he crouches and lies down like a lioness who dares to wake him up.
The scepter will not be removed from Judah, nor the staff of command from between his feet, until he to whom it belongs come and the obedience of the nations will be his, he will tie his donkey to a vine, his worship to the choicest branch, he will wash his clothes and wine his clothes in the blood of grapes his eyes will be darker than wine his teeth whiter than milk Zebulon will live on the seashore and will become a refuge for ships. His border will extend toward Sidon. Issachar is a raw-boned donkey lying among the chickens, when he sees how good his resting place is and how pleasant his land is, he will bend his shoulder. to the burden and undergo forced labor Dan will provide Justice for his people as one of the tribes of Israel Dan will be a snake on the roadside a viper on the road that bites the horse's heels so that its rider falls backwards I await your deliverance Lord God will be attacked by a band of raiders but he will attack them on their heels the food of Asher will be rich he will provide delicacies fit for a Naphtali king it is a released dose that produces beautiful fawns Joseph is a fruitful vine a fruitful vine near a spring whose branches climb a wall with bitterness the archers attacked him they shot him with hostility but his bow remained firm his strong arms remained agile by the hand of the mighty of Jacob by the shepherd the rock of Israel by the God of your father who helps thanks to the almighty who blesses you with the blessings of the heavens above, the blessings of the deep springs, below, the blessings of the breast and the womb, the blessings of your father are greater than the blessings of the ancient mountains, then the bounty of the ancient hills allows all these to rest on the head of Joseph on the forehead of the prince among his brothers Benjamin is a ravenous wolf in the morning he devours the prey in the afternoon he distributes the spoils all these are the 12 tribes of Israel and this is what he said their father to them when he blessed them giving each one the blessing that corresponded to him then he gave them these instructions I am about to be gathered to my people bury me with my parents in the cave in the field of Ephraim the Hittite the cave in the field of macapella near Mamrei in Canaan, which Abraham bought along with the field for burial of Ephraim the Hittite, there Abraham and his wife Sarah were buried, Isaac and his wife Rebekah were buried there and I buried Leah there, from where the field was purchased and the cave that was in it. the Hittites when Jacob finished giving instructions to his children, put his feet in bed, breathed his last and was reunited with his people Genesis chapter 50.
Joseph threw himself on his father, wept over him and kissed him, then Joseph directed to the doctors. in his service to embalm his father Israel, then the doctors embalmed him taking 40 full days because that was the time required to embalm and the Egyptians mourned for him 70 days when the days of mourning had passed, Joseph told the court of Pharaoh if I have found favor in your eyes talk to Pharaoh for me tell him that my father made me take an oath and said that I am about to die bury me in the Tomb that I dug for me in the land of Canaan now let me go up and bury my father then I will return Pharaoh said go up and bury your father as he made you swear that you would do Joseph went up to bury his father all of Pharaoh's officials accompanied him the dignitaries of his court and all the dignitaries of Egypt in addition to all the members of The house of Joseph and his brothers and those of his father's house only his sons and their flocks and herds remained in the chariots of Goshen and also horsemen went up with him.
It was a very large company when they arrived at the threshing floor of a Todd near the Jordan lamented loudly and bitterly and there Joseph observed a seven-day period of mourning for his father when the Canaanites who lived there saw the morning on the threshing floor of a Todd said the Egyptians are holding a solemn ceremony of mourning for that That place near the Jordan is called Abel mizrahim and the sons of Jacob rose up as he had commanded them. They took him to the land of Canaan and buried him in the cave in the field of Machpelah near Mamrei that Abraham had bought along with the field as a burial place for Ephraim the Hittite.
After burying his father Joseph returned to Egypt along with his brothers. And all the others who had gone with him to bury his father, when Joseph's brother saw that his father was dead, said: What if Joseph holds a grudge against us and pays us all the money? evils that we did to him, so they sent a message to Joseph telling him that your father left these instructions before he died. This is what you should tell José. I ask you to forgive your brothers for the sins and mistakes they made by treating you so badly. Now please. forgive the sins of the Servants of your father's god when his message came to him Joseph cried his brothers then they came and prostrated themselves before him we are your slaves they said but Joseph told them don't be afraid am I in the place of God you intended to harm me But God planned it for good to achieve what is now happening, the salvation of many lives, so do not be afraid, I will provide for you and your children, and he calmed them down and spoke kindly to them.
Joseph stayed in Egypt along with his father's entire family, he lived 110 years and saw the third generation of the children of Ephraim, also the children of Makir, son of Manasseh, were placed at birth on Joseph's knees, so Joseph said to his brothers, I am about to die but God will surely come to your aid and take you out of this land to the land that he promised under oath to Abraham Isaac and Jacob Joseph made the Israelites take an oath and said that God will surely come to your aid and then you must carry my bones He went up from this place and Joseph died at the age of 110.
And after they embalmed him, they placed him in a coffin in Egypt.
