50:1 Joseph fell on his father`s face, wept on him, and kissed him.
50:2 Joseph commanded his servants, the physicians, to embalm his father; and the physicians embalmed Israel.
50:3 Forty days were fulfilled for him, for that is how many the days it takes to embalm. The Egyptians wept for him for seventy days.
50:4 When the days of weeping for him were past, Joseph spoke to the house of Pharaoh, saying, "If now I have found favor in your eyes, please speak in the ears of Pharaoh, saying,
50:5 `My father made me swear, saying, "Behold, I am dying. Bury me in my grave which I have dug for myself in the land of Canaan." Now therefore, please let me go up and bury my father, and I will come again.`"
50:6 Pharaoh said, "Go up, and bury your father, just like he made you swear."
50:7 Joseph went up to bury his father; and with him went up all the servants of Pharaoh, the elders of his house, all the elders of the land of Egypt,
50:9 There went up with him both chariots and horsemen. It was a very great company.
50:11 When the inhabitants of the land, the Canaanites, saw the mourning in the floor of Atad, they said, "This is a grievous mourning by the Egyptians." Therefore, the name of it was called Abel-mizraim, which is beyond the Jordan.
50:12 His sons did to him just as he commanded them,
50:13 for his sons carried him into the land of Canaan, and buried him in the cave of the field of Machpelah, which Abraham bought with the field, for a possession of a burying-place, from Ephron the Hittite, before Mamre.
50:14 Joseph returned into Egypt - he, and his brothers, and all that went up with him to bury his father, after he had buried his father.
50:15 When Joseph`s brothers saw that their father was dead, they said, "It may be that Joseph will hate us, and will fully pay us back for all of the evil which we did to him.
50:16 They sent a message to Joseph, saying, "Your father commanded before he died, saying,
50:17 So will you tell Joseph, `Now please forgive the disobedience of your brothers, and their sin, because they did evil to you.` Now, please forgive the disobedience of the servants of the God of your father." Joseph wept when they spoke to him.
50:18 His brothers also went and fell down before his face; and they said, "Behold, we are your servants."
50:21 Now therefore don`t be afraid. I will nourish you and your little ones." He comforted them, and spoke kindly to them.
50:22 Joseph lived in Egypt, he, and his father`s house. Joseph lived one hundred ten years.
50:26 So Joseph died, being one hundred ten years old, and they embalmed him, and he was put in a coffin in Egypt.
