Genesis 46


1
And Israel went on his journey with all he had, and came to Beer-sheba, where he made offerings to the God of his father Isaac.
2
And God said to Israel in a night-vision, Jacob, Jacob. And he said, Here am I.
3
And he said, I am God, the God of your father: go down to Egypt without fear, for I will make a great nation of you there:
4
I will go down with you to Egypt, and I will see that you come back again, and at your death Joseph will put his hands on your eyes.
5
Then Jacob went on from Beer-sheba and the sons of Jacob took their father and their little ones and their wives in the carts which Pharaoh had sent for them.
6
And they took their cattle and all the goods which they had got in the land of Canaan, and came to Egypt, even Jacob and all his seed:
7
His sons and his sons' sons, his daughters and his daughters' sons and all his family he took with him into Egypt.
8
And these are the names of the children of Israel who came into Egypt, even Jacob and all his sons: Reuben, Jacob's oldest son
9
And the sons of Reuben: Hanoch and Pallu and Hezron and Carmi
10
And the sons of Simeon: Jemuel and Jamin and Ohad and Jachin and Zohar and Shaul, the son of a woman of Canaan
11
And the sons of Levi: Gershon, Kohath, and Merari
12
And the sons of Judah: Er and Onan and Shelah and Perez and Zerah: but Er and Onan had come to their death in the land of Canaan and the sons of Perez were Hezron and Hamul.
13
And the sons of Issachar: Tola and Puah and Job and Shimron
14
And the sons of Zebulun: Sered and Elon and Jahleel
15
All these, together with his daughter Dinah, were the children of Leah, whom Jacob had by her in Paddan-aram they were thirty-three in number.
16
And the sons of Gad: Ziphion and Haggi, Shuni and Ezbon, Eri and Arodi and Areli
17
And the sons of Asher: Jimnah and Ishvah and Ishvi and Beriah, and Sarah, their sister and the sons of Beriah: Heber and Malchiel.
18
These are the children of Zilpah, whom Laban gave to his daughter Leah, and Jacob had these sixteen children by her.
19
The sons of Jacob's wife Rachel: Joseph and Benjamin.
20
And Joseph had Manasseh and Ephraim in the land of Egypt, by Asenath, the daughter of Poti-phera, priest of On.
21
And the sons of Benjamin were Belah and Becher and Ashbel, Gera and Naaman, Ehi and Rosh, Muppim and Huppim and Ard.
22
All these were the children of Rachel whom Jacob had by her, fourteen persons.
23
And the son of Dan was Hushim.
24
And the sons of Naphtali: Jahzeel and Guni and Jezer and Shillem.
25
These were the children of Bilhah, whom Laban gave to his daughter Rachel, seven persons.
26
All the persons who came with Jacob into Egypt, the offspring of his body, were sixty-six, without taking into account the wives of Jacob's sons.
27
And the sons of Joseph whom he had in Egypt were two. Seventy persons of the family of Jacob came into Egypt.
28
Now he had sent Judah before him to Goshen, to get word from Joseph and so they came to the land of Goshen.
29
And Joseph got his carriage ready and went to Goshen for the meeting with his father and when he came before him, he put his arms round his neck, weeping.
30
And Israel said to Joseph, Now that I have seen you living again, I am ready for death.
31
And Joseph said to his brothers and to his father's people, I will go and give the news to Pharaoh, and say to him, My brothers and my father's people, from the land of Canaan, have come to me
32
And these men are keepers of sheep and owners of cattle, and have with them their flocks and their herds and all they have.
33
Now when Pharaoh sends for you and says, What is your business?
34
You are to say, Your servants have been keepers of cattle from our early days up to now, like our fathers in this way you will be able to have the land of Goshen for yourselves because keepers of sheep are unclean in the eyes of the Egyptians.

Genesis 47


1
Then Joseph went to Pharaoh, and said, My father and my brothers with their flocks and their herds and all they have, are come from Canaan, and are now in the land of Goshen.
2
And he took five of his brothers to Pharaoh.
3
And Pharaoh said to them, What is your business? And they said, Your servants are keepers of sheep, as our fathers were before us.
4
And they said to Pharaoh, We have come to make a living in this land, because we have no grass for our flocks in the land of Canaan so now let your servants make a place for themselves in the land of Goshen.
5
And Pharaoh said to Joseph, Let them have the land of Goshen and if there are any able men among them, put them over my cattle.
6
And Jacob and his sons came to Joseph in Egypt, and when word of it came to the ears of Pharaoh, king of Egypt, he said to Joseph, Your father and brothers have come to you all the land of Egypt is before you let your father and your brothers have the best of the land for their resting-place.
7
Then Joseph made his father Jacob come before Pharaoh, and Jacob gave him his blessing.
8
And Pharaoh said to him, How old are you?
9
And Jacob said, The years of my wanderings have been a hundred and thirty small in number and full of sorrow have been the years of my life, and less than the years of the wanderings of my fathers.
10
And Jacob gave Pharaoh his blessing, and went out from before him.
11
And Joseph made a place for his father and his brothers, and gave them a heritage in the land of Egypt, in the best of the land, the land of Rameses, as Pharaoh had given orders.
12
And Joseph took care of his father and his brothers and all his father's people, giving them food for the needs of their families.
13
Now there was no food to be had in all the land, so that all Egypt and Canaan were wasted from need of food.
14
And all the money in Egypt and in the land of Canaan which had been given for grain, came into the hands of Joseph: and he put it in Pharaoh's house.
15
And when all the money in Egypt and Canaan was gone, the Egyptians came to Joseph, and said, Give us bread would you have us come to destruction before your eyes? for we have no more money.
16
And Joseph said, Give me your cattle I will give you grain in exchange for your cattle if your money is all gone.
17
So they took their cattle to Joseph and he gave them bread in exchange for their horses and flocks and herds and asses, so all that year he gave them food in exchange for their cattle.
18
And when that year was ended, they came to him in the second year, and said, We may not keep it from our lord's knowledge that all our money is gone, and all the herds of cattle are my lord's there is nothing more to give my lord but our bodies and our land
19
Are we to come to destruction before your eyes, we and our land? take us and our land and give us bread and we and our land will be servants to Pharaoh and give us seed so that we may have life and the land may not become waste.
20
So Joseph got all the land in Egypt for Pharaoh for every Egyptian gave up his land in exchange for food, because of their great need so all the land became Pharaoh's.
21
And as for the people, he made servants of them, town by town, from one end of Egypt to the other.
22
Only he did not take the land of the priests, for the priests had their food given them by Pharaoh, and having what Pharaoh gave them, they had no need to give up their land.
23
Then Joseph said to the people, I have made you and your land this day the property of Pharaoh here is seed for you to put in your fields.
24
And when the grain is cut, you are to give a fifth part to Pharaoh, and four parts will be yours for seed and food, and for your families and your little ones.
25
And they said to him, Truly you have kept us from death may we have grace in your eyes, and we will be Pharaoh's servants.
26
Then Joseph made a law which is in force to this day, that Pharaoh was to have the fifth part only the land of the priests did not become his.
27
And so Israel was living among the Egyptians in the land of Goshen and they got property there, and became very great in numbers and in wealth.
28
And Jacob was living in the land of Goshen for seventeen years so the years of his life were a hundred and forty-seven.
29
And the time of his death came near, and he sent for his son Joseph and said to him, If now I am dear to you, put your hand under my leg and take an oath that you will not put me to rest in Egypt
30
But when I go to my fathers, you are to take me out of Egypt and put me to rest in their last resting-place. And he said, I will do so.
31
And he said, Take an oath to me and he took an oath to him: and Israel gave worship on the bed's head.

Genesis 48


1
Now after these things, word came to Joseph that his father was ill: and he took with him his sons Manasseh and Ephraim.
2
And when they said to Jacob, Your son Joseph is coming to see you: then Israel, getting all his strength together, had himself lifted up in his bed.
3
And Jacob said to Joseph, God, the Ruler of all, came to me in a vision at Luz in the land of Canaan, and gave me his blessing,
4
And said to me, Truly, I will make you fertile and give you increase and will make of you a great family of nations: and I will give this land to your seed after you to be their heritage for ever.
5
And now your two sons who came to birth in Egypt before I came to you here, are mine Ephraim and Manasseh will be mine, in the same way as Reuben and Simeon are.
6
And any other offspring which you have after them, will be yours, and will be named after their brothers in their heritage.
7
And as for me, when I came from Paddan, death overtook Rachel on the way, when we were still some distance from Ephrath and I put her to rest there on the road to Ephrath, which is Beth-lehem.
8
Then Israel, looking at Joseph's sons, said, Who are these?
9
And Joseph said to his father, They are my sons, whom God has given me in this land. And he said, Let them come near me, and I will give them a blessing.
10
Now because Israel was old, his eyes were no longer clear, and he was not able to see. So he made them come near to him, and he gave them a kiss, folding them in his arms.
11
And Israel said to Joseph, I had no hope of seeing your face again, but God in his mercy has let me see you and your children.
12
Then Joseph took them from between his knees, and went down on his face to the earth.
13
Then taking Ephraim with his right hand, Joseph put him at Israel's left side, and with his left hand he put Manasseh at Israel's right side, placing them near him.
14
And Israel, stretching out his right hand, put it on the head of Ephraim, the younger, and his left hand on the head of Manasseh, crossing his hands on purpose, for Manasseh was the older.
15
And he gave Joseph a blessing, saying, May the God to whom my fathers, Abraham and Isaac, gave worship, the God who has taken care of me all my life till this day,
16
The angel who has been my saviour from all evil, send his blessing on these children: and let my name and the name of my fathers, Abraham and Isaac, be given to them and let them become a great nation in the earth.
17
Now when Joseph saw that his father had put his right hand on the head of Ephraim, it did not seem right to him and lifting his father's hand he would have put it on the head of Manasseh.
18
And Joseph said to his father, Not so, my father, for this is the older put your right hand on his head.
19
But his father would not, saying, I am doing it on purpose, my son he will certainly become a nation and a great one but his younger brother will be greater than he, and his seed will become a great family of nations.
20
So he gave them his blessing that day, saying, You will be the sign of blessing in Israel, for they will say, May God make you like Ephraim and Manasseh and he put Ephraim before Manasseh.
21
Then Israel said to Joseph, Now my death is near but God will be with you, guiding you back to the land of your fathers.
22
And I have given you more than your brothers, even Shechem as your heritage, which I took from the Amorites with my sword and my bow.

Matthew 13

44-58
44
The kingdom of heaven is like a secret store of wealth in a field, which a man came across and put back again and in his joy he goes and gives all he has, to get that field.
45
Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a trader searching for beautiful jewels.
46
And having come across one jewel of great price, he went and gave all he had in exchange for it.
47
Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a net, which was put into the sea and took in every sort of fish:
48
When it was full, they took it up on the sands and seated there they put the good into vessels, but the bad they put away.
49
So will it be in the end of the world: the angels will come and take out the bad from the good,
50
And will put them into the fire: there will be weeping and cries of sorrow.
51
Are all these things now clear to you? They say to him, Yes.
52
And he said to them, For this reason every scribe who has become a disciple of the kingdom of heaven is like the owner of a house, who gives out from his store things new and old.
53
And when Jesus had come to the end of these stories he went away from there.
54
And coming into his country, he gave them teaching in their Synagogue, so that they were greatly surprised and said, Where did this man get this wisdom and these works of power?
55
Is not this the woodworker's son? is not his mother named Mary? and his brothers James and Joseph and Simon and Judas?
56
And his sisters, are they not all with us? from where, then, has he all these things?
57
And they were bitter against him. But Jesus said to them, A prophet is nowhere without honour but in his country and among his family.
58
And the works of power which he did there were small in number because they had no faith.

Matthew 14

1-12
1
At that time news of Jesus came to Herod the king
2
And he said to his servants, This is John the Baptist he has come back from the dead, and so these powers are working in him.
3
For Herod had taken John and put him in prison because of Herodias, his brother Philip's wife.
4
Because John had said to him, It is not right for you to have her.
5
And he would have put him to death, but for his fear of the people, because in their eyes John was a prophet.
6
But when Herod's birthday came, the daughter of Herodias was dancing before them, and Herod was pleased with her.
7
So he gave her his word with an oath to let her have whatever she might make request for.
8
And she, at her mother's suggestion, said, Give me here on a plate the head of John the Baptist.
9
And the king was sad but because of his oaths and because of his guests, he gave the order for it to be given to her
10
And he sent and had John's head cut off in the prison.
11
And his head was put on a plate and given to the girl and she took it to her mother.
12
And his disciples came, and took up his body and put it in the earth and they went and gave Jesus news of what had taken place.
