Selected verses…

“And Israel dwelt in the land of Egypt, in the country of Goshen; and they had possessions therein, and grew, and multiplied exceedingly. And Jacob lived in the land of Egypt seventeen years: so the whole age of Jacob was an hundred forty and seven years.  And the time drew nigh that Israel must die: and he called his son Joseph, and said unto him, ‘If now I have found grace in thy sight, put, I pray thee, thy hand under my thigh, and deal kindly and truly with me; bury me not, I pray thee, in Egypt: but I will lie with my fathers, and thou shalt carry me out of Egypt, and bury me in their buryingplace.’ And he said, ‘I will do as thou hast said.’  And he said, ‘Swear unto me.’  And he sware unto him. And Israel bowed himself upon the bed’s head.”  Genesis 47:27-31 (KJV)
