Genesis 46:1-6

Context
The Family of Jacob goes to Egypt

46:1 So Israel began his journey, taking with him all that he had. 9  When he came to Beer Sheba 10  he offered sacrifices to the God of his father Isaac. 46:2 God spoke to Israel in a vision during the night 11  and said, “Jacob, Jacob!” He replied, “Here I am!” 46:3 He said, “I am God, 12  the God of your father. Do not be afraid to go down to Egypt, for I will make you into a great nation there. 46:4 I will go down with you to Egypt and I myself will certainly bring you back from there. 13  Joseph will close your eyes.” 14 

46:5 Then Jacob started out 15  from Beer Sheba, and the sons of Israel carried their father Jacob, their little children, and their wives in the wagons that Pharaoh had sent along to transport him. 46:6 Jacob and all his descendants took their livestock and the possessions they had acquired in the land of Canaan, and they went to Egypt. 16 

1 tn The Hebrew verb נָסַע (nasa’) means “to journey”; more specifically it means to pull up the tent and move to another place. The construction here uses the preterite of this verb with its infinitive absolute to stress the activity of traveling. But it also adds the infinitive absolute of הָלַךְ (halakh) to stress that the traveling was continually going on. Thus “Abram journeyed, going and journeying” becomes “Abram continually journeyed by stages.”

2 tn Or “the South [country].”

sn Negev is the name for the southern desert region in the land of Canaan.

3 tn Or “the South [country]” (also in v. 3).

sn Negev is the name for the southern desert region in the land of Canaan.

4 tn Heb “And Abram went up from Egypt, he and his wife and all which was his, and Lot with him, to the Negev.”

5 tn Heb “on his journeys”; the verb and noun combination means to pick up the tents and move from camp to camp.

6 map For location see Map4 G4; Map5 C1; Map6 E3; Map7 D1; Map8 G3.

7 tn The words “he returned” are supplied in the translation for stylistic reasons.

8 tn Heb “where his tent had been.”

9 tn Heb “and Israel journeyed, and all that was his.”

10 sn Beer Sheba. See Gen 21:31; 28:10.

11 tn Heb “in visions of the night.” The plural form has the singular meaning, probably as a plural of intensity.

12 tn Heb “the God.”

13 tn Heb “and I, I will bring you up, also bringing up.” The independent personal pronoun before the first person imperfect verbal form draws attention to the speaker/subject, while the infinitive absolute after the imperfect strongly emphasizes the statement: “I myself will certainly bring you up.”

14 tn Heb “and Joseph will put his hand upon your eyes.” This is a promise of peaceful death in Egypt with Joseph present to close his eyes.

15 tn Heb “arose.”

16 tn Heb “and they took their livestock and their possessions which they had acquired in the land of Canaan and they went to Egypt, Jacob and all his offspring with him.” The order of the clauses has been rearranged in the translation for stylistic reasons.
