Genesis 50:1-2

Context
The Burials of Jacob and Joseph

50:1 Then Joseph hugged his father’s face. 1  He wept over him and kissed him. 50:2 Joseph instructed the physicians in his service 2  to embalm his father, so the physicians embalmed Israel.

1 tn Heb “fell on.” The expression describes Joseph’s unrestrained sorrow over Jacob’s death; he probably threw himself across the body and embraced his father.

2 tn Heb “his servants the physicians.”
