Unchecked Copy BoxGen 50:11 - The local residents, the Canaanites, watched them mourning at the threshing floor of Atad. Then they renamed that place (which is near the Jordan) Abel-mizraim,[fn] for they said, “This is a place of deep mourning for these Egyptians.”

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 50:17 - to say to you: ‘Please forgive your brothers for the great wrong they did to you—for their sin in treating you so cruelly.’ So we, the servants of the God of your father, beg you to forgive our sin.” When Joseph received the message, he broke down and wept.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 50:18 - Then his brothers came and threw themselves down before Joseph. “Look, we are your slaves!” they said.
