Jacob Goes To Egypt

1So Israel set out with all that was his, and when he reached Beersheba, he offered sacrifices to the God of his father Isaac.
2And God spoke to Israel in a vision at night and said, “Jacob! “Here I am,” he replied.
3“I am God, the God of your father,” he said. “Do not be afraid to go down to Egypt, for I will make you into a great nation there.
4I will go down to Egypt with you, and I will surely bring youback again. And Joseph’s own hand will close your eyes.”
5Then Jacob left Beersheba, and Israel’s sons took their father
Jacob and their children and their wives in the carts that Pharaoh had sent to transport him.
6So Jacob and all his offspring went to Egypt, taking with them
their livestock and the possessions they had acquired in Canaan.
7Jacob brought with him to Egypt his sons and grandsons and
his daughters and granddaughters—all his offspring.
