Γένεσις 46:1-7

᾽Απάρας δὲ ᾿Ισραήλ, αὐτὸς καὶ πάντα τὰ αὐτοῦ, ἦλθεν ἐπὶ τὸ φρέαρ τοῦ ὅρκου καὶ ἔθυσε θυσίαν τῷ Θεῷ τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ ᾿Ισαάκ. εἶπε δὲ ὁ Θεὸς τῷ ᾿Ισραὴλ ἐν ὁράματι τῆς νυκτός, εἰπών· ᾿Ιακώβ, ᾿Ιακώβ, ὁ δὲ εἶπε· τί ἐστιν; ὁ δὲ λέγει αὐτῷ· ἐγώ εἰμι ὁ Θεὸς τῶν πατέρων σου· μὴ φοβοῦ καταβῆναι εἰς Αἴγυπτον· εἰς γὰρ ἔθνος μέγα ποιήσω σε ἐκεῖ, καὶ ἐγὼ καταβήσομαι μετὰ σοῦ εἰς Αἴγυπτον, καὶ ἐγὼ ἀναβιβάσω σε εἰς τέλος, καὶ ᾿Ιωσὴφ ἐπιβαλεῖ τὰς χεῖρας αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ τοὺς ὀφθαλμούς σου. ἀνέστη δὲ ᾿Ιακὼβ ἀπὸ τοῦ φρέατος τοῦ ὅρκου, καὶ ἀνέλαβον οἱ υἱοὶ ᾿Ισραὴλ τὸν πατέρα αὐτῶν καὶ τὴν ἀποσκευὴν καὶ τὰς γυναῖκας αὐτῶν ἐπὶ τὰς ἁμάξας ἃς ἀπέστειλεν ᾿Ιωσὴφ ἆραι αὐτόν, καὶ ἀναλαβόντες τὰ ὑπάρχοντα αὐτῶν καὶ πᾶσαν τὴν κτῆσιν, ἣν ἐκτήσαντο ἐν γῇ Χαναάν, εἰσῆλθον εἰς Αἴγυπτον, ᾿Ιακὼβ καὶ πᾶν τὸ σπέρμα αὐτοῦ μετ᾿ αὐτοῦ, υἱοὶ καὶ υἱοὶ τῶν υἱῶν αὐτοῦ μετ᾿ αὐτοῦ, θυγατέρες καὶ θυγατέρες τῶν θυγατέρων αὐτοῦ· καὶ πᾶν τὸ σπέρμα αὐτοῦ ἤγαγεν εἰς Αἴγυπτον.
