18 And they came to him and said, We, these [persons], are thy servants. 19 And Joseph said to them, Fear not, for I am God's. 20 Ye took counsel against me for evil, but God took counsel for me for good, that [the matter] might be as [it is] to-day, and much people might be fed. 21 And he said to them, Fear not, I will maintain you, and your families: and he comforted them, and spoke kindly to them. 22 And Joseph dwelt in Egypt, he and his brethren, and all the family of his father; and Joseph lived a hundred and ten years. 23 And Joseph saw the children of Ephraim to the third generation; and the sons of Machir the son of Manasse were borne on the sides of Joseph. 24 And Joseph spoke to his brethren, saying, I die, and God will surely visit you, and will bring you out of this land to the land concerning which God sware to our fathers, Abraam, Isaac, and Jacob. 25 And Joseph adjured the sons of Israel, saying, At the visitation with which God shall visit you, then ye shall carry up my bones hence with you. 26 And Joseph died, aged an hundred and ten years; and they prepared his corpse, and put him in a coffin in Egypt.

18 καὶ ἐλθόντες πρὸς αὐτὸν εἶπαν· οἵδε ἡμεῖς σοὶ ἱκέται. 19 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτοῖς ᾿Ιωσήφ· μὴ φοβεῖσθε, τοῦ γὰρ Θεοῦ εἰμι ἐγώ. 20 ὑμεῖς ἐβουλεύσασθε κατ᾿ ἐμοῦ εἰς πονηρά, ὁ δὲ Θεὸς ἐβουλεύσατο περὶ ἐμοῦ εἰς ἀγαθά, ὅπως ἂν γενηθῇ ὡς σήμερον καὶ τραφῇ λαὸς πολύς. 21 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτοῖς· μὴ φοβεῖσθε· ἐγὼ διαθρέψω ὑμᾶς καὶ τὰς οἰκίας ὑμῶν. καὶ παρεκάλεσεν αὐτοὺς καὶ ἐλάλησεν αὐτῶν εἰς τὴν καρδίαν. 22 Καὶ κατῴκησεν ᾿Ιωσὴφ ἐν Αἰγύπτῳ, αὐτὸς καὶ οἱ ἀδελφοὶ αὐτοῦ καὶ πᾶσα ἡ πανοικία τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ. καὶ ἔζησεν ᾿Ιωσὴφ ἔτη ἑκατὸν δέκα. 23 καὶ εἶδεν ᾿Ιωσὴφ ᾿Εφραΐμ παιδία ἕως τρίτης γενεᾶς, καὶ οἱ υἱοὶ Μαχεὶρ τοῦ υἱοῦ Μανασσῆ ἐτέχθησαν ἐπὶ μηρῶν ᾿Ιωσήφ. 24 καὶ εἶπεν ᾿Ιωσήφ τοῖς ἀδελφοῖς αὐτοῦ λέγων· ἐγὼ ἀποθνήσκω· ἐπισκοπῇ δὲ ἐπισκέψεται ὁ Θεὸς ὑμᾶς καὶ ἀνάξει ὑμᾶς ἐκ τῆς γῆς ταύτης εἰς τὴν γῆν, ἣν ὤμοσεν ὁ Θεὸς τοῖς πατράσιν ἡμῶν, ῾Αβραάμ, ᾿Ισαὰκ καὶ ᾿Ιακώβ. 25 καὶ ὥρκισεν ᾿Ιωσὴφ τοὺς υἱοὺς ᾿Ισραὴλ λέγων· ἐν τῇ ἐπισκοπῇ, ᾗ ἐπισκέψηται ὁ Θεὸς ὑμᾶς, καὶ συνανοίσετε τὰ ὀστᾶ μου ἐντεῦθεν μεθ᾿ ὑμῶν. 26 καὶ ἐτελεύτησεν ᾿Ιωσὴφ ἐτῶν ἑκατὸν δέκα· καὶ ἔθαψαν αὐτὸν καὶ ἔθηκαν ἐν τῇ σορῷ ἐν Αἰγύπτῳ.
