ND Joseph fell upon his father's face, and wept on him, and kissed him. 2 And Joseph commanded his servants the embalmers to embalm his father; and the embalmers embalmed Israel. 3 And they fulfilled forty days for him, for so are the days of embalming numbered; and Egypt mourned for him seventy days. 4 And when the days of mourning were past, Joseph spoke to the princes of Pharao, saying, If I have found favour in your sight, speak concerning me in the ears of Pharao, saying, 5 My father adjured me, saying, In the sepulchre which I dug for myself in the land of Chanaan, there thou shalt bury me; now then I will go up and bury my father, and return again. 6 And Pharao said to Joseph, Go up, bury thy father, as he constrained thee to swear. 7 So Joseph went up to bury his father; and all the servants of Pharao went up with him, and the elders of his house, and all the elders of the land of Egypt. 8 And all the household of Joseph, and his brethren, and all the house of his father, and his kindred; and they left behind the sheep and the oxen in the land of Gesem. 9 And there went up with him also chariots and horsemen; and there was a very great company.

ΚΑΙ ἐπιπεσὼν ᾿Ιωσὴφ ἐπὶ πρόσωπον τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ, ἔκλαυσεν αὐτὸν καὶ ἐφίλησεν αὐτόν. 2 καὶ προσέταξεν ᾿Ιωσὴφ τοῖς παισὶν αὐτοῦ τοῖς ἐνταφιασταῖς ἐνταφιάσαι τὸν πατέρα αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἐνεταφίασαν οἱ ἐνταφιασταὶ τὸν ᾿Ισραήλ. 3 καὶ ἐπλήρωσαν αὐτοῦ τεσσαράκοντα ἡμέρας· οὕτω γὰρ καταριθμοῦνται αἱ ἡμέραι τῆς ταφῆς. καὶ ἐπένθησεν αὐτὸν Αἴγυπτος ἑβδομήκοντα ἡμέρας. 4 ᾿Επεὶ δὲ παρῆλθον αἱ ἡμέραι τοῦ πένθους, ἐλάλησεν ᾿Ιωσὴφ πρὸς τοὺς δυνάστας Φαραὼ λέγων· εἰ εὗρον χάριν ἐναντίον ὑμῶν λαλήσατε περὶ ἐμοῦ εἰς τὰ ὦτα Φαραὼ λέγοντες· 5 ὁ πατήρ μου ὥρκισέ με λέγων· ἐν τῷ μνημείῳ ᾧ ὤρυξα ἐμαυτῷ ἐν γῇ Χαναάν, ἐκεῖ με θάψεις· νῦν οὖν ἀναβὰς θάψω τὸν πατέρα μου καὶ ἐπανελεύσομαι. 6 καὶ εἶπε Φαραὼ τῷ ᾿Ιωσήφ· ἀνάβηθι, θάψον τὸν πατέρα σου, καθάπερ ὥρκισέ σε. 7 καὶ ἀνέβη ᾿Ιωσὴφ θάψαι τὸν πατέρα αὐτοῦ, καὶ συνανέβησαν μετ᾿ αὐτοῦ πάντες οἱ παῖδες Φαραὼ καὶ οἱ πρεσβύτεροι τοῦ οἴκου αὐτοῦ καὶ πάντες οἱ πρεσβύτεροι τῆς γῆς Αἰγύπτου. 8 καὶ πᾶσα ἡ πανοικία ᾿Ιωσὴφ καὶ οἱ ἀδελφοὶ αὐτοῦ καὶ πᾶσα ἡ οἰκία ἡ πατρικὴ αὐτοῦ, καὶ τὴν συγγένειαν αὐτοῦ καὶ τὰ πρόβατα καὶ τοὺς βόας ὑπελίποντο ἐν γῇ Γεσέμ. 9 καὶ συνανέβησαν μετ᾿ αὐτοῦ καὶ ἅρματα καὶ ἱππεῖς, καὶ ἐγένετο ἡ παρεμβολὴ μεγάλη σφόδρα.
