Genesis 46, 28 – 31 „Israel had sent Judah ahead to Joseph, so that he might meet him in Goshen. On his arrival in the region of Goshen, 29Joseph prepared his chariot and went up to meet his father Israel in Goshen. As soon as Israel made his appearance, Joseph threw his arms around him and wept a long time on his shoulder. 30And Israel said to Joseph, At last I can die, now that I have seen for myself that you are still alive. 31Joseph then said to his brothers and his father’s household: I will go up and inform Pharaoh, telling him: My brothers and my father’s household, whose home is in the land of Canaan, have come to me”.
