V. 1 Jacob worshipped God before be left the land.
V. 2 God answers, and assures him that his family would become a great nation! And He assures him of His presence. But best of all, He assures him that He will bring him up again (John 13:33Jesus knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he was come from God, and went to God; (John 13:3)).
V. 5-26 The great family of 66 souls travels to Egypt. Not one is missing. Were they all fine, upright, true men? Hardly, but they were a humbled people. And that is what counts with God.
V. 28 This is interesting. Judah again; (Zech. 10:66And I will strengthen the house of Judah, and I will save the house of Joseph, and I will bring them again to place them; for I have mercy upon them: and they shall be as though I had not cast them off: for I am the Lord their God, and will hear them. (Zechariah 10:6)), he is chosen to go ahead, and meet Joseph. Thy tribe of Judah is today back in the land of Israel. They are going to be the first to welcome the Lord Jesus when He comes back to reign over earth.
V. 29 Joseph himself goes to meet them all in a chariot (Isa. 66;15).
V. 30 We have read of the hands of Joseph, his tears his face, his blood, and is words. Now if you want to have some sweet thoughts and meditations, think of these same five things of the Lord Jesus.
