Genesis 49-50

After finishing chapter 49, it seems evident that Jacob knows his sons pretty well. You’d think, after having 12 boys (and however many girls), that he might lose touch with some of the kids. Not so, based on this chapter. In fact, Jacob knows his sons well, perhaps better than they know themselves. He announces some blessings, some curses, and some general comments no their character, then he passes.

Joseph and all the family promise to bury him in his homeland, and that they do. Then in chapter 50, Joseph dies and is embalmed, but not before the famous phrase,

“You meant evil against me, but God intended it for good.”
