ND Israel departed, he and all that he had, and came to the well of the oath; and he offered sacrifice to the God of his father Isaac. 2 And God spoke to Israel in a night vision, saying, Jacob, Jacob; and he said, What is it? 3 And he says to him, I am the God of thy fathers; fear not to go down into Egypt, for I will make thee there a great nation. 4 And I will go down with thee into Egypt, and I will bring thee up at the end; and Joseph shall put his hands on thine eyes. 5 And Jacob rose up from the well of the oath; and the sons of Israel took up their father, and the baggage, and their wives on the wagons, which Joseph sent to take them. 6 And they took up their goods, and all their property, which they had gotten in the land of Chanaan; they came into the land of Egypt, Jacob, and all his seed with him. 7 The sons, and the sons of his sons with him; [his] daughters, and the daughters of his daughters; and he brought all his seed into Egypt. 8 And these are the names of the sons of Israel that went into Egypt with their father Jacob-- Jacob and his sons. The first-born of Jacob, Ruben. 9 And the sons of Ruben; Enoch, and Phallus, Asron, and Charmi. 10 and the sons of Symeon; Jemuel, and Jamin, and Aod, and Achin, and Saar, and Saul, the son of a Chananitish woman. 11 And the sons of Levi; Gerson, Cath, and Merari.

ΑΠΑΡΑΣ δὲ ᾿Ισραήλ, αὐτὸς καὶ πάντα τὰ αὐτοῦ, ἦλθεν ἐπὶ τὸ φρέαρ τοῦ ὅρκου καὶ ἔθυσε θυσίαν τῷ Θεῷ τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ ᾿Ισαάκ. 2 εἶπε δὲ ὁ Θεὸς τῷ ᾿Ισραὴλ ἐν ὁράματι τῆς νυκτός, εἰπών· ᾿Ιακώβ, ᾿Ιακώβ, ὁ δὲ εἶπε· τί ἐστιν; 3 ὁ δὲ λέγει αὐτῷ· ἐγώ εἰμι ὁ Θεὸς τῶν πατέρων σου· μὴ φοβοῦ καταβῆναι εἰς Αἴγυπτον· εἰς γὰρ ἔθνος μέγα ποιήσω σε ἐκεῖ, 4 καὶ ἐγὼ καταβήσομαι μετὰ σοῦ εἰς Αἴγυπτον, καὶ ἐγὼ ἀναβιβάσω σε εἰς τέλος, καὶ ᾿Ιωσὴφ ἐπιβαλεῖ τὰς χεῖρας αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ τοὺς ὀφθαλμούς σου. 5 ἀνέστη δὲ ᾿Ιακὼβ ἀπὸ τοῦ φρέατος τοῦ ὅρκου, καὶ ἀνέλαβον οἱ υἱοὶ ᾿Ισραὴλ τὸν πατέρα αὐτῶν καὶ τὴν ἀποσκευὴν καὶ τὰς γυναῖκας αὐτῶν ἐπὶ τὰς ἁμάξας ἃς ἀπέστειλεν ᾿Ιωσὴφ ἆραι αὐτόν, 6 καὶ ἀναλαβόντες τὰ ὑπάρχοντα αὐτῶν καὶ πᾶσαν τὴν κτῆσιν, ἣν ἐκτήσαντο ἐν γῇ Χαναάν, εἰσῆλθον εἰς Αἴγυπτον, ᾿Ιακὼβ καὶ πᾶν τὸ σπέρμα αὐτοῦ μετ᾿ αὐτοῦ, 7 υἱοὶ καὶ υἱοὶ τῶν υἱῶν αὐτοῦ μετ᾿ αὐτοῦ, θυγατέρες καὶ θυγατέρες τῶν θυγατέρων αὐτοῦ· καὶ πᾶν τὸ σπέρμα αὐτοῦ ἤγαγεν εἰς Αἴγυπτον. 8 Ταῦτα δὲ τὰ ὀνόματα τῶν υἱῶν ᾿Ισραὴλ τῶν εἰσελθόντων εἰς Αἴγυπτον ἅμα ᾿Ιακὼβ τῷ πατρὶ αὐτῶν. ᾿Ιακὼβ καὶ υἱοὶ αὐτοῦ· πρωτότοκος ᾿Ιακὼβ Ρουβήν. 9 υἱοὶ δὲ Ρουβήν· ᾿Ενὼχ καὶ Φαλλούς, ᾿Ασρὼν καὶ Χαρμί. 10 υἱοὶ δὲ Συμεών· ᾿Ιεμουὴλ καὶ ᾿Ιαμεὶν καὶ ᾿Αὼδ καὶ ᾿Ιαχεὶν καὶ Σαὰρ καὶ Σαοὺλ υἱὸς τῆς Χανανίτιδος. 11 υἱοὶ δὲ Λευΐ· Γηρσών, Καὰθ καὶ Μεραρί.
