Bible: Genesis 47:27-31

47:27 Israel settled in the land of Egypt, in the land of Goshen, and they owned land there. They were fruitful and increased rapidly in number.

47:28 Jacob lived in the land of Egypt seventeen years; the years 1  of Jacob’s life were 147 in all. 47:29 The time 2  for Israel to die approached, so he called for his son Joseph and said to him, “If now I have found favor in your sight, put your hand under my thigh 3  and show me kindness and faithfulness. 4  Do not bury me in Egypt, 47:30 but when I rest 5  with my fathers, carry me out of Egypt and bury me in their burial place.” Joseph 6  said, “I will do as you say.”

47:31 Jacob 7  said, “Swear to me that you will do so.” 8  So Joseph 9  gave him his word. 10  Then Israel bowed down 11  at the head of his bed. 12
