Genesis 46
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1And Israel picked up, he and all that he had, and he came to Beersheba and offered a sacrifice to the God of his father Isaaq. 2And God spoke to Israel in a vision of the night and said, “Yaquuv, Yaquuv”, and he said, “Here I am.” 3And he said to him, “I AM Eil, the God of your father; do not fear to go down to Egypt, because I shall make you there a great people: 4I shall go down with you and I shall bring you up, and Yoseph will lay his hands on your eyes.”

5And Yaquuv arose from Beersheba, and Yaquuv took the sons of Israel, their father, and their little ones, and their wives in the wagons that Pharaoh had sent to carry him. 6And they drove their cattle and their possessions that they had acquired in the land of Canaan, and they came to Egypt, Yaquuv and all his seed with him: 7His sons and the sons of his sons with him, his daughters and the daughters of his sons, and all his seed he brought with him to Egypt.

8And these are the names of the sons of Israel who entered Egypt: Yaquuv and his sons, the first born of Yaquuv, Rubil. 9The sons of Rubil: Khenook and Palu and Khetsroon and Karmi. 10And the sons of Shemon: Yemuyel and Yamin and Ahar and Yakeen and Tsakhar and Shawal son of a Canaanitess. 11And the sons of Levi: Gershoon and Qahath and Merari. 12And the sons of Yehuda: Eyr and Unaan and Shela and Pharets and Zarakh; and Eyr and Unaan died in the land of Canaan, and the sons of Pharets were Khetsruun and Khamuul. 13And the sons of Isakaar: Tula and Phua and Uyab and Shemroon. 14And the sons of Zabalaun: Sadar and Aluun and Nakhlayel. 15These are the sons of Leah that she bore to Yaquuv in Padan of Aram plus Dinah his daughter; all the souls of his sons and of his daughters were thirty and three. 16And the sons of Gad: Zephioon and Khagi and Shooni and Atsboon and Adi and Arood and Adri. 17And the sons of Asheer: Yamna and Yashwa and Ishwi and Bria and Sarakh their sister; and the sons of Bria: Khaber and Malkeel. 18These are the children of Zelpha whom Laban gave to Leah his daughter, and she bore these sixteen souls to Yaquuv. 19And the sons of Rakhil, the wife of Yaquuv: Yoseph and Benjamin. 20And Menasheh and Aphreim were born to Yoseph in the land of Egypt, to whom Asyath daughter of Putiphra, Priest of Oun, had given birth by him. 21And the sons of Benyamin: Baala and Akbar and Ashkuul and Gaara and Naaman and Akhi and Aruush and Mapheem and Khapheem and Edar. 22These are the sons of Rakhil who had borne fourteen souls to Yaquuv. 23And the sons of Dan: Khushim. 24And the sons of Naphtali: Nakhtsayel and Guni and Yatsar and Khatsar and Shalim. 25These are the sons of Balha, whom Laban gave to Rakhil his daughter, and she bore all these seven souls to Yaquuv. 26All the souls that entered with Yaquuv into Egypt, that came out from his loins, apart from the wives of the children of Yaquuv, all the souls were sixty and six; 27And the sons of Yoseph that were born to him in Egypt were two souls; all the souls of the house of Yaquuv who entered into Egypt were seventy.

28And he sent Yehuda before him to Yoseph to appear before him to Geshan, and he came to the land of Geshan. 29And Yoseph harnessed his chariots and he came up for the meeting of Israel his father, to Geshan, and he was seen by him and he fell on his neck and was weeping on his neck repeatedly. 30And Israel said to Yoseph, “I may die therefore after I have seen your face, my son, for you are still living.” 31And Yoseph said to his brothers and to the house of his father, “I shall go up; I shall tell Pharaoh and say to him, ‘My brothers and the house of my father who were in the land of Canaan have come to me; 32And the men are Shepherds of sheep, because the men are owners of cattle, and they have brought their flocks and their oxen and everything that they have. 33And when Pharaoh will call you and he will say to you, ‘What is your work?.’ 34Say to him, ‘My Lord, your Servants have been cattle men from their youth until now, also we and also our fathers’, because you will dwell in the land of Geshan because Egyptians despise all Shepherds of sheep.’”
