46 So Israel set out with all that he had, and came to Beersheba, and offered sacrifices to the God of his father Isaac.2 God spoke to Israel [a]in visions of the night and said, “Jacob, Jacob.” And he said, “Here I am.”3 He said, “I am God, the God of your father; do not be afraid to go down to Egypt, for I will make you a great nation there.4 I will go down with you to Egypt, and I will also surely bring you up again; and Joseph will [b]close your eyes.”
5 Then Jacob arose from Beersheba; and the sons of Israel carried their father Jacob and their little ones and their wives in the wagons which Pharaoh had sent to carry him.6 They took their livestock and their property, which they had acquired in the land of Canaan, and came to Egypt, Jacob and all his [c]descendants with him:7 his sons and his grandsons with him, his daughters and his granddaughters, and all his [d]descendants he brought with him to Egypt.
Those Who Came to Egypt
8 Now these are the names of the sons of Israel, Jacob and his sons, who went to Egypt: Reuben, Jacob’s firstborn.9 The sons of Reuben: Hanoch and Pallu and Hezron and Carmi.10 The sons of Simeon: [e]Jemuel and Jamin and Ohad and [f]Jachin and [g]Zohar and Shaul the son of a Canaanite woman.11 The sons of Levi: [h]Gershon, Kohath, and Merari.12 The sons of Judah: Er and Onan and Shelah and Perez and Zerah (but Er and Onan died in the land of Canaan). And the sons of Perez were Hezron and Hamul.13 The sons of Issachar: Tola and [i]Puvvah and [j]Iob and Shimron.14 The sons of Zebulun: Sered and Elon and Jahleel.15 These are the sons of Leah, whom she bore to Jacob in Paddan-aram, with his daughter Dinah; [k]all his sons and his daughters numbered thirty-three.16 The sons of Gad: [l]Ziphion and Haggi, Shuni and [m]Ezbon, Eri and [n]Arodi and Areli.17 The sons of Asher: Imnah and Ishvah and Ishvi and Beriah and their sister Serah. And the sons of Beriah: Heber and Malchiel.18 These are the sons of Zilpah, whom Laban gave to his daughter Leah; and she bore to Jacob these sixteen persons.19 The sons of Jacob’s wife Rachel: Joseph and Benjamin.20 Now to Joseph in the land of Egypt were born Manasseh and Ephraim, whom Asenath, the daughter of Potiphera, priest of On, bore to him.21 The sons of Benjamin: Bela and Becher and Ashbel, Gera and Naaman, [o]Ehi and Rosh, [p]Muppim and [q]Huppim and Ard.22 These are the sons of Rachel, who were born to Jacob; there were fourteen persons in all.23 The sons of Dan: [r]Hushim.24 The sons of Naphtali: [s]Jahzeel and Guni and Jezer and [t]Shillem.25 These are the sons of Bilhah, whom Laban gave to his daughter Rachel, and she bore these to Jacob; there were seven persons in all.26 All the persons belonging to Jacob, who came to Egypt, [u]his direct descendants, not including the wives of Jacob’s sons, were sixty-six persons in all,27 and the sons of Joseph, who were born to him in Egypt were [v]two; all the persons of the house of Jacob, who came to Egypt, were seventy.
28 Now he sent Judah before him to Joseph, to point out the way before him to Goshen; and they came into the land of Goshen.
