Text Commentary

1And after this the seven years of plenty came to an end, and the seven years of famine began. 2And when Jacob heard about his son 1 his son: Slav. om. Joseph, he came into Egypt, with all his family, in the second month, on the twenty-first day of the month; and he settled in the land of Goshen. 2 So BA Slav.: D ‘Egypt’. 3And Aseneth said to Joseph, I 3 So BEFGA Slav.: D ‘we’. will go and see your father, because your father Israel is my father; and Joseph said to her, Let us go together. 4And Joseph and Aseneth came into the land of Goshen, and Joseph's brothers met them 4 into … them = BA Slav.: D ‘and Joseph's brothers’; B adds ‘in the land of Goshen’. and made obeisance to them upon the ground. 5And they came to Jacob and he blessed them and kissed them; 5 and kissed them = B Slav.: D om. and Aseneth hung upon his father 6 his father: D om. Jacob's neck and kissed him. 6And after this they ate and drank. 7And Joseph and Aseneth went to their house, and Simeon and Levi escorted them, to protect them: 7 Lit. ‘escorted them because their enemies were envious of them’. Levi was on Aseneth's right hand and Simeon 8 So B: DFA Slav. ‘Joseph’. on the left. 8And Aseneth took Levi's hand because she loved him as a man who was a prophet and a worshipper of God and a man who feared the Lord. And he used to see letters written in the heavens, and he would read them and interpret them 9 So B (lit. ‘he would reveal them’): D ‘he would reveal all things’. to Aseneth privately; and Levi saw the place of her rest in the highest heaven.
