we will pay homage to the King of the heavens."

After Benjamin had made an end of speaking thus, he
said: "I command you, my children, to carry my bones up
out of Egypt and bury me near my fathers."

And when he had made an end of saying these things, he
fell asleep at a good old age, and they put his body into a
coffin, and in the ninety-first year of their sojourning in
Egypt, his sons and the sons of his brethren brought up the
bones of their father, in secret, and buried them in Hebron,
at the feet of their fathers. Then they returned from the
land of Canaan, and they dwelt in Egypt until the day of the
exodus from the land.[18]
