Death of Joseph

22 Now Joseph stayed in Egypt, he and his father’s household, and Joseph lived 110 years. 23 Joseph saw the third generation of Ephraim’s sons; also the sons of Machir, the son of Manasseh, were (A)born on Joseph’s knees. 24 Joseph said to his brothers, “(B)I am about to die, but God will assuredly [a]take care of you and bring you up from this land to the land which He [b]promised on oath to (C)Abraham, to (D)Isaac, and to (E)Jacob.” 25 Then Joseph made the sons of Israel swear, saying, “God will assuredly [c]take care of you, and (F)you shall carry my bones up from here.” 26 So Joseph died at the age of 110 years; and they (G)embalmed him and placed him in a coffin in Egypt.
