Genesis 15:15

15:15 But as for you, you will go to your ancestors in peace and be buried at a good old age.

Genesis 47:30

47:30 but when I rest with my fathers, carry me out of Egypt and bury me in their burial place.” Joseph said, “I will do as you say.”


tn The vav with the pronoun before the verb calls special attention to the subject in contrast to the preceding subject.

sn You will go to your ancestors. This is a euphemistic expression for death.

tn Heb “in a good old age.”

tn Heb “lie down.” Here the expression “lie down” refers to death.

tn Heb “he”; the referent (Joseph) has been specified in the translation for clarity.
