10 And they came to the threshing-floor of Atad, which is beyond Jordan; and they bewailed him with a great and very sore lamentation; and he made a mourning for his father seven days. 11 And the inhabitants of the land of Chanaan saw the mourning at the floor of Atad, and said, This is a great mourning to the Egyptians; therefore he called its name, The mourning of Egypt, which is beyond Jordan. 12 And thus his sons did to him. 13 So his sons carried him up into the land of Chanaan, and buried him in the double cave, which cave Abraam bought for possession of a burying place, of Ephrom the Chettite, before Mambre. 14 And Joseph returned to Egypt, he and his brethren, and those that had gone up with him to bury his father. 15 And when the brethren of Joseph saw that their father was dead, they said, [Let us take heed], lest at any time Joseph remember evil against us, and recompense to us all the evils which we have done against him. 16 And they came to Joseph, and said, Thy father adjured [us] before his death, saying, 17 Thus say ye to Joseph, Forgive them their injustice and their sin, forasmuch as they have done thee evil; and now pardon the injustice of the servants of the God of thy father. And Joseph wept while they spoke to him.

10 καὶ παρεγένοντο εἰς ἅλωνα ᾿Ατάδ, ὅ ἐστι πέραν τοῦ ᾿Ιορδάνου, καὶ ἐκόψαντο αὐτὸν κοπετὸν μέγαν καὶ ἰσχυρὸν σφόδρα· καὶ ἐποίησε τὸ πένθος τῷ πατρὶ αὐτοῦ ἑπτὰ ἡμέρας. 11 καὶ εἶδον οἱ κάτοικοι τῆς γῆς Χαναὰν τὸ πένθος ἐπὶ ἅλωνι ᾿Ατὰδ καὶ εἶπαν· πένθος μέγα τοῦτό ἐστι τοῖς Αἰγυπτίοις· διὰ τοῦτο ἐκάλεσε τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ Πένθος Αἰγύπτου, ὅ ἐστι πέραν τοῦ ᾿Ιορδάνου. 12 καὶ ἐποίησαν αὐτῷ οὕτως οἱ υἱοὶ αὐτοῦ 13 καὶ ἀνέλαβον αὐτὸν οἱ υἱοὶ αὐτοῦ εἰς γῆν Χαναὰν καὶ ἔθαψαν αὐτὸν εἰς τὸ σπήλαιον τὸ διπλοῦν, ὃ ἐκτήσατο ῾Αβραὰμ τὸ σπήλαιον ἐν κτήσει μνημείου παρὰ ᾿Εφρὼν τοῦ Χετταίου, κατέναντι Μαμβρῆ. 14 καὶ ὑπέστρεψεν ᾿Ιωσὴφ εἰς Αἴγυπτον, αὐτὸς καὶ οἱ ἀδελφοὶ αὐτοῦ καὶ οἱ συναναβάντες θάψαι τὸν πατέρα αὐτοῦ. 15 ᾿Ιδόντες δὲ οἱ ἀδελφοὶ ᾿Ιωσὴφ ὅτι τέθνηκεν ὁ πατὴρ αὐτῶν, εἶπαν· μή ποτε μνησικακήσῃ ἡμῖν ᾿Ιωσὴφ καὶ ἀνταπόδομα ἀνταποδῷ ἡμῖν πάντα τὰ κακά, ἃ ἐνεδειξάμεθα εἰς αὐτόν. 16 καὶ παραγενόμενοι πρὸς ᾿Ιωσὴφ εἶπαν· ὁ πατήρ σου ὥρκισε πρὸ τοῦ τελευτῆσαι αὐτὸν λέγων· 17 οὕτως εἴπατε ᾿Ιωσήφ· ἄφες αὐτοῖς τὴν ἀδικίαν καί τὴν ἁμαρτίαν αὐτῶν, ὅτι πονηρά σοι ἐνεδείξαντο· καὶ νῦν δέξαι τὴν ἀδικίαν τῶν θεραπόντων τοῦ Θεοῦ τοῦ πατρός σου. καὶ ἔκλαυσεν ᾿Ιωσὴφ λαλούντων αὐτῶν πρὸς αὐτόν.
