Genesis 50:2 Then Joseph commanded his servants, the physicians, to embalm his father,so the physicians embalmed Israel. Genesis 50:3 And they fulfilled for him forty days, for, so, are they wont to fulfill the days of the embalmed,and the Egyptians wept for him seventy days.
Joseph getteth leave of Pharaoh to go to bury him.
Genesis 50:4 And, when the days of weeping for him were passed, Joseph spake unto the house of Pharaoh, saying,If, I pray you, I have found favour in your eyes, speak ye, I pray you, in the ears of Pharaoh, saying: Genesis 50:5 My father, made me swear, saying,Lo! I, am about to die,in my grave which I digged for myself, in the land of Canaan, there, shalt thou bury me. Now, therefore, let me go up, I pray thee, and bury my father, and return. Genesis 50:6 And Pharaoh said,Go up, and bury thy father, according as he made thee swear.
Genesis 50:7 So Joseph went up, to bury his father,and there went up with him all the servants of Pharaoh, the elders of his house, and all the elders of the land of Egypt; Genesis 50:8 and all the house of Joseph, and his brethren, and the house of his father,only, their little ones and their flocks and their herds, left they, in the land of Goshen. Genesis 50:9 And there went up with him, both chariots, and horsemen,so it came to pass that, the company, was exceeding great. Genesis 50:10 And they came in, as far as the threshing-floor of the Buckthorn, which is beyond the Jordan, then wailed they therean exceeding great and grievous wailing,and he made for his father a mourning, of seven days. Genesis 50:11 And, when the dwellers in the landthe Canaanitessaw the mourning in the threshing-floor of the Buckthorn, they said,A grievous mourning, this! for the Egyptians. For this cause, was the name thereof called, Abel Mizraim, which is beyond the Jordan. Genesis 50:12 And his sons did for him thus, as he had commanded them; Genesis 50:13 so his sons carried him to the land of Canaan, and buried him in the cave of the field of Machpelah,which Abraham boughtwith the fieldfor a possession of a buryingplace, from Ephron the Hittite, over against Mamre.

Joseph comforteth his brethren, who craved his pardon.
Genesis 50:15 Now, when the brethren of Joseph saw that their father was dead, they saidOh! if Joseph should lie in wait for us,and, should return, to us, all the evil wherewith we requited him! Genesis 50:16 So they sent in charge unto Joseph, saying,Thy father, gave command, before he died, saying: Genesis 50:17 Thus, shall ye say to JosephAh now! do forgive, we pray thee, the transgression of thy brethren and their sin, in that, with evil, they requited thee. Now, therefore, grant forgiveness, we pray thee, for the transgression of the servants of the God of thy father! And Joseph wept, when they spake unto him. Genesis 50:18 Then went his brethren also, and fell down before him,and said, Behold us! Thine, for servants. Genesis 50:19 And Joseph said unto themDo not fear,although, in place of God, I am. Genesis 50:20 Ye, indeed, planned against me, evil,God, planned it, for good, for the sake of doing, as at this day, to save alive much people. Genesis 50:21 Now, therefore, do not fear! I, will nourish you, and your little ones. Thus he consoled them, and spake unto their heart.
