YOSĔPH 20 (Joseph 20)

1 For I know that after my death the Mitsrites will oppress you, but Elohim will work vengeance on your behalf, and will lead you into the promises made to your fathers.

2 You shall carry my bones along with you, for when you are taking my bones up there, 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 will be with you in the light, while Beliar will be with the Mitsrites in the dark.

3 Take Asenath, your mother, and bury her by the hippodrome, near Raḥĕl, your grandmother.

4 And when he had said this he stretched out his feet and fell into a beautiful sleep.

5 And all Yisra’ĕl and all Mitsrayim mourned with great lamentation.

6 And at the departure of the sons of Yisra’ĕl from Mitsrayim, they took along Yosĕph’s bones and buried him in Ḥeḇron with his fathers. The years of his life were one hundred ten.
