1 And again after the seven months I saw our father, Ya’aqoḇ, standing by the sea at Yamnia and we, his sons, were with him.

2 And behold a ship came sailing past full of dried fish, without sailor or pilot.

3 Inscribed on it was ‘The Ship of Ya’aqoḇ.’ So our father said to us, Get into the boat.

4 As we boarded it, a violent tempest arose, a great windstorm, and our father, who had been holding us on course, was snatched away from us.

5 After being tossed by the storm, the boat was filled with water and carried along on the waves until it broke apart.

6 Yosĕph escaped in a light boat while we were scattered about on ten planks; Lĕwi and Yahuḏah were on the same one.

7 Thus we were dispersed, even to the ends of the earth.

8 Lĕwi, putting on sack cloth, prayed to 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 on behalf of all of us.

9 When the storm ceased, the ship reached the land, as it were in peace.

10 Then Ya’aqoḇ, our father, approached, and we all rejoiced with one accord.
