29Then he commanded them and said to them, "I am to be(A) gathered to my people;(B) bury me with my fathers(C) in the cave that is in the field of Ephron the Hittite, 30in the cave that is in the field at Machpelah, to the east of Mamre, in the land of Canaan,(D) which Abraham bought with the field from Ephron the Hittite to possess as a burying place. 31(E) There they buried Abraham and Sarah his wife. There(F) they buried Isaac and Rebekah his wife, and there I buried Leah— 32the field and the cave that is in it were bought from the Hittites." 33When Jacob finished commanding his sons, he drew up his feet into the bed and breathed his last and(G) was gathered to his people.1Then Joseph(H) fell on his father’s face and wept over him and kissed him. 2And Joseph commanded his servants the physicians to(I) embalm his father. So the physicians embalmed Israel. 3Forty days were required for it, for that is how many are required for embalming. And the Egyptians(J) wept for him seventy days. 4And when the days of weeping for him were past, Joseph spoke to the household of Pharaoh, saying,(K) "If now I have found favor in your eyes, please speak in the ears of Pharaoh, saying, 5My father made me swear, saying, 'I am about to die: in my tomb(L) that I hewed out for myself in the land of Canaan, there shall you bury me.' Now therefore, let me please go up and bury my father. Then I will return." 6And Pharaoh answered, "Go up, and bury your father, as he made you swear." 7So Joseph went up to bury his father. With him went up all the servants of Pharaoh, the elders of his household, and all the elders of the land of Egypt, English Standard Version (ESV) The Holy Bible, English Standard Version Copyright © 2001 by Crossway Bibles, a division of Good News Publishers.
