Jacob

+ 242 When you look at a city, it's like reading the hopes, aspirations and pride of everyone who built it. Hugh Newell Jacobsen


+ 260 On the other hand, I don't understand the enthusiasm for everything in the antique shop that Grandma threw out. There, the sense of quality has declined; otherwise Grandma wouldn't have thrown it out. Arne Jacobsen


+ 274 Anthropologist Simon Dein has noted: "Lubavitchers held that the Rebbe was more powerful in the spiritual realm without the hindrance of a physical body. However some have now claimed that he never died again a concept not unfounded as we see the commentaries includin and as late as the Rebbe himself mention to verse such as the one relating to Jacobs burial. Several even state that the Rebbe is God meaning to say completely nullifife to G-ds existence. This is a significant finding. It is known in the history of Judaism to hold that the religious leader is "God"[liness] and to this extent the group is unique. A more famous quote of reference is "righteous ones are similar to their creator". At first glance it may seem there are certain Christian elements which were apparently apparently inform the messianic ideas of this group. The concept of a leader of the generation as he is called and G-dliness is indeed a more often misunderstood concept"


+ 299 Animals are the lower intelligent of creatures, yet God illustrates man as one of them. Why? To demonstrate to us how careless, how thoughtless, and sometimes how cruel and low-life we can be without him. Without God, we go through a hard, disappointing, and dreadful life. We are like fearful, untrained, and bitter children that have played all day and are afraid to go to sleep at night, thinking we are going to miss out or be left out of things.

A sailor out on a stormy sea needs a strong sail and anchor for the days and a lighthouse for the nights to survive. This is a good illustration of witnessing. We draw from one anotherís strength for the day and mediate on it in the nights in accordance with Godís Word.

God has faded out of the mind of this generation, we like immature children, believe that the Toyland of material wealth is a sufficient world. Yet houses, cars, and money really do not fulfill.

Abraham begot Isaac, and Isaac begot Jacob Ė a generation of God-fearing men. But in the next generation, God was not the God of Isaac. He had faded and became second place in their lives. Even in the motherís womb, there was a struggle for honor and success. Jacob stole his brotherís birthright. Morals were decaying, rottenness appeared. The same things have happened with us. Our whole nation is reaping the results of a fading faith and trust, which is producing decaying morals and a decaying country. We are morally out of control. Unless we, like Jacob, who when frightened for his life desired a moral renewal, acknowledge that we are wrong and find God in the process.

We must seek God with our whole hearts. The future of this world is in the hands of the believers. God has left everything in the hands of the church. Therefore, we must witness. An evangelical team must go out and bring the people back to the Garden of Eden as God had originally planned. Grace is always available!

+ 150 And afterwards, his brother emerged, and his hand was grasping Esau's heel, and he named him Jacob. Now Isaac was sixty years old when she gave birth to them. Bereshit 25:26


+ 145 And the youths grew up, and Esau was a man who understood hunting, a man of the field, whereas Jacob was an innocent man, dwelling in tents. Bereshit 25:27


+ 168 And Isaac loved Esau because his game was in his mouth, but Rebecca loved Jacob. Bereshit 25:28


+ 157 Now Jacob cooked a pottage, and Esau came from the field, and he was faint. Bereshit 25:29


+ 161 And Esau said to Jacob, Pour into me some of this red, red pottage, for I am faint; he was therefore named Edom. Bereshit 25:30


+ 128 And Jacob said, Sell me as of this day your birthright. Bereshit 25:31


+ 150 And Jacob said, Swear to me as of this day; so he swore to him, and he sold his birthright to Jacob. Bereshit 25:33


+ 136 And Jacob gave Esau bread and a pottage of lentils, and he ate and drank and arose and left, and Esau despised the birthright. Bereshit 25:34


+ 159 And Rebecca said to Jacob her son, saying, Behold I have heard your father speaking to Esau your brother, saying, Bereshit 27:6


+ 137 And Jacob said to Rebecca his mother, Behold, my brother Esau is a hairy man, whereas I am a smooth man. Bereshit 27:11


+ 146 And Rebecca took the costly garments of Esau, her elder son, which were with her in the house, and she dressed Jacob, her younger son. Bereshit 27:15


+ 130 And she gave the tasty foods and the bread that she had made, into the hand of Jacob her son. Bereshit 27:17


+ 155 And Jacob said to his father, I am Esau your firstborn. I have done as you have spoken to me. Please rise, sit down and eat of my game, so that your soul will bless me. Bereshit 27:19


+ 168 And Isaac said to Jacob, Please come closer, so that I may feel you, my son, whether you are really my son Esau or not. Bereshit 27:21


+ 160 So Jacob drew near to Isaac his father, and he felt him, and he said, The voice is the voice of Jacob, but the hands are the hands of Esau. Bereshit 27:22


+ 157 And it came to pass, when Isaac had finished blessing Jacob, and it came to pass Jacob had just left his father Isaac's presence, that his brother Esau came from his hunt. Bereshit 27:30


+ 162 And he said, Is it for this reason that he was named Jacob? For he has deceived me twice; he took my birthright, and behold, now he has taken my blessing. And he said, Have you not reserved a blessing for me? Bereshit 27:36


+ 166 And Esau hated Jacob because of the blessing that his father had blessed him, and Esau said to himself, Let the days of mourning for my father draw near, I will then kill my brother Jacob. Bereshit 27:41


+ 146 And Rebecca was told of the words of Esau, her elder son, and she sent and called Jacob, her younger son, and she said to him, "Behold, your brother Esau regrets his relationship to you and wishes to kill you. Bereshit 27:42


+ 159 And Rebecca said to Isaac, I am disgusted with my life because of the daughters of Heth. If Jacob takes a wife of the daughters of Heth like these, from the daughters of the land, of what use is life to me? Bereshit 27:46


+ 159 And Isaac called Jacob and blessed him, and he commanded him and said to him, You shall not take a wife of the daughters of Canaan. Bereshit 28:1


+ 156 And Isaac sent Jacob, and he went to Padan aram, to Laban the son of Bethuel the Aramean, the brother of Rebecca, the mother of Jacob and Esau. Bereshit 28:5


+ 187 And Esau saw that Isaac had blessed Jacob and sent him away to Padan aram, to take himself a wife from there, and that when he blessed him, he commanded him, saying, You shall not take a wife of the daughters of Canaan. Bereshit 28:6


+ 132 And Jacob listened to his father and his mother, and he went to Padan aram. Bereshit 28:7


+ 144 And Jacob left Beer sheba, and he went to Haran. Bereshit 28:10


+ 148 And Jacob awakened from his sleep, and he said, Indeed, the Lord is in this place, and I did not know it. Bereshit 28:16


+ 158 And Jacob arose early in the morning, and he took the stone that he had placed at his head, and he set it up as a monument, and he poured oil on top of it. Bereshit 28:18


+ 139 And Jacob uttered a vow, saying, If God will be with me, and He will guard me on this way, upon which I am going, and He will give me bread to eat and a garment to wear; Bereshit 28:20


+ 142 Now Jacob lifted his feet and went to the land of the people of the East. Bereshit 29:01


+ 128 And Jacob said to them, My brothers, where are you from? And they said, We are from Haran. 29:4


+ 165 And it came to pass, when Jacob saw Rachel, the daughter of Laban, his mother's brother and the sheep of Laban, his mother's brother, that Jacob drew near and rolled the rock off the mouth of the well, and he watered the sheep of Laban, his mother's brother. Bereshit 29:10


+ 154 And Jacob kissed Rachel, and he raised his voice and wept. Bereshit 29:11


+ 141 And Jacob told Rachel that he was her father's kinsman and that he was Rebecca's son, and she ran and told her father. Bereshit 29:12


+ 150 Now it came to pass when Laban heard the report of Jacob, his sister's son, that he ran towards him, and he embraced him, and he kissed him, and he brought him into his house. He told Laban all these happenings. Bereshit 29:13


+ 161 And Laban said to Jacob, Because you are my kinsman, should you work for me gratis? Tell me what your wages shall be. Bereshit 29:15


+ 169 And Jacob loved Rachel, and he said, I will work for you seven years for Rachel, your younger daughter. Bereshit 29:19


+ 160 So Jacob worked for Rachel seven years, but they appeared to him like a few days because of his love for her. Bereshit 29:20


+ 144 And Jacob said to Laban, Give me my wife, for my days are completed, that I may come to her. Bereshit 29:21


+ 147 And Jacob did so, and he completed the week of this one, and he gave his daughter Rachel to him as a wife. Bereshit 29:28


+ 152 And Rachel saw that she had not borne any children to Jacob, and Rachel envied her sister, and she said to Jacob, Give me children, and if not, I am dead. Bereshit 30:1


+ 151 And Jacob became angry with Rachel, and he said, Am I instead of God, Who has withheld from you the fruit of the womb? Bereshit 30:2


+ 128 So she gave him her maidservant Bilhah for a wife, and Jacob came to her. Bereshit 30:4


+ 140 And Bilhah conceived, and she bore Jacob a son. Bereshit 30:5


+ 151 And Bilhah, Rachel's maidservant, conceived again and bore Jacob a second son. Bereshit 30:7


+ 159 When Leah saw that she had stopped bearing children, she took her maidservant Zilpah, and gave her to Jacob for a wife. Bereshit 30:9


+ 137 And Zilpah, Leah's maidservant, bore Jacob a son. Bereshit 30:10


+ 143 And Zilpah, Leah's maidservant, bore Jacob a second son. Bereshit 30:12


+ 157 When Jacob came from the field in the evening, and Leah came forth toward him, and she said, You shall come to me, because I have hired you with my son's dudaim, and he slept with her on that night. Bereshit 30:16


+ 133 And God hearkened to Leah, and she conceived and bore Jacob a fifth son. Bereshit 30:17


+ 143 And Leah conceived again, and she bore Jacob a sixth son. Bereshit 30:19


+ 167 It came to pass when Rachel had borne Joseph, that Jacob said to Laban, Send me away, and I will go to my place and to my land. Bereshit 30:25


+ 144 And he said, What shall I give you? And Jacob said, You shall give me nothing; if you do this thing for me, I will return, I will pasture your flocks, and I will watch them. Bereshit 30:31


+ 159 And he set three days' journey between himself and Jacob, and Jacob tended Laban's remaining animals. Bereshit 30:36


+ 158 And Jacob took himself moist rods of trembling poplar and hazelnut, and chestnut, and he peeled white streaks upon them, baring the white that was on the rods. Bereshit 30:37


+ 170 And Jacob separated the sheep, and he turned the faces of the animals toward the ringed ones and every brown one among Laban's animals, and he made himself flocks by himself, and he did not place them with Laban's animals. Bereshit 30:40


+ 166 And it came to pass, that whenever the animals that were bearing their first would come into heat, Jacob would place the rods in the troughs, before the eyes of the animals, in order to bring them into heat by means of the rods. Bereshit 30:41


+ 168 But if the animals would delay, he would not place them, so that the ones that delayed were Laban's, and the ones that bore their first became Jacob's. Bereshit 30:42


+ 153 And he heard the words of Laban's sons, saying, Jacob has taken all that belonged to our father, and from what belonged to our father, he has amassed this entire fortune. Bereshit 31:1


+ 161 And Jacob saw Laban's countenance, that he was not disposed toward him as he had been yesterday and the day before. Bereshit 31:2


+ 144 And the Lord said to Jacob, Return to the land of your forefathers and to your birthplace, and I will be with you. Bereshit 31:3


+ 137 So Jacob sent and called Rachel and Leah to the field, to his flocks. Bereshit 31:4


+ 148 And the Lord said to Jacob, Return to the land of your forefathers and to your birthplace, and I will be with you. Bereshit 31:3


+ 146 So Jacob sent and called Rachel and Leah to the field, to his flocks. Bereshit 31:4


+ 142 And an angel of God said to me in a dream, Jacob! And I said, Here I am. Bereshit 31:11


+ 146 So Jacob rose, and he lifted up his sons and his wives upon the camels. Bereshit 31:17


+ 156 And Jacob concealed from Laban the Aramean by not telling him that he was fleeing. Bereshit 31:20


+ 133 On the third day, Laban was informed that Jacob had fled. Bereshit 31:22


+ 170 And God came to Laban the Aramean in a dream of the night, and He said to him, Beware lest you speak with Jacob either good or evil. Bereshit 31:24


+ 144 And Laban overtook Jacob, and Jacob pitched his tent on the mountain, and Laban pitched with his kinsmen on Mount Gilead. Bereshit 31:25


+ 160 And Laban said to Jacob, What have you done, that you concealed from me, and led away my daughters like prisoners of war? Bereshit 31:26


+ 157 I have the power to inflict harm upon you, but the God of your father spoke to me last night, saying, Beware of speaking with Jacob either good or bad. Bereshit 31:29


+ 140 And Jacob replied, and he said to Laban, Because I was afraid, because I said, Lest you steal your daughters from me. Bereshit 31:31


+ 165 The one with whom you find your gods shall not live. In the presence of our brothers, recognize for yourself what is with me, and take it for yourself. For Jacob did not know that Rachel had stolen them. Bereshit 31:32


+ 146 So Laban entered Jacob's tent and Leah's tent and the tents of the two handmaids, but he did not find them; and he had come out of Leah's tent and entered Rachel's tent. Bereshit 31:33


+ 140 And Jacob was annoyed, and he quarreled with Laban, and he said to Laban, What is my transgression? What is my sin, that you have pursued me? Bereshit 31:36


+ 155 And Laban answered and said to Jacob, "The daughters are my daughters, and the sons are my sons, and the animals are my animals, and all that you see is mine. Now, what would I do to these daughters of mine today, or to their children, whom they have borne? Bereshit 31:43


+ 117 So Jacob took a stone and set it up as a monument. Bereshit 31:45


+ 129 And Jacob said to his kinsmen, Gather stones, and they took stones and made a pile, and they ate there by the pile. Bereshit 31:46


+ 121 And Laban called it Yegar Sahadutha, but Jacob called it Gal ed. Bereshit 31:47


+ 134 And Laban said to Jacob, Behold this pile and behold this monument, which I have cast between me and you. Bereshit 31:51


+ 147 May the God of Abraham and the god of Nahor judge between us, the god of their father. And Jacob swore by the Fear of his father Isaac. Bereshit 31:53


+ 146 And Jacob slaughtered a slaughtering on the mountain, and he invited his friends to eat a meal, and they ate bread and lodged on the mountain. Bereshit 31:54


+ 136 And Jacob went on his way, and angels of God met him. Bereshit 32:2


+ 137 And Jacob said when he saw them, This is the camp of God, and he named the place Mahanaim. Bereshit 32:3


+ 124 Jacob sent angels ahead of him to his brother Esau, to the land of Seir, the field of Edom. Bereshit 32:4


+ 120 And he commanded them, saying, So shall you say to my master to Esau, Thus said your servant Jacob, I have sojourned with Laban, and I have tarried until now. Bereshit 32:5


+ 125 The angels returned to Jacob, saying, We came to your brother, to Esau, and he is also coming toward you, and four hundred men are with him. Bereshit 32:7


+ 160 Jacob became very frightened and was distressed; so he divided the people who were with him and the flocks and the cattle and the camels into two camps. Bereshit 32:8


+ 155 And Jacob said, O God of my father Abraham and God of my father Isaac, the Lord, Who said to me, Return to your land and to your birthplace, and I will do good to you. Bereshit 32:10


+ 149 You shall say, I belong to your servant Jacob; it is a gift sent to my master, to Esau, and behold, he himself is behind us. Bereshit 32:19


+ 149 And you shall say, Also, behold, your servant Jacob is behind us. For he said, I will appease his anger with the gift that is going before me, and afterwards I will see his face, perhaps he will favor me. Bereshit 32:21


+ 117 And Jacob was left alone, and a man wrestled with him until the break of dawn. Bereshit 32:25


+ 163 When he saw that he could not prevail against him, he touched the socket of his hip, and the socket of Jacob's hip became dislocated as he wrestled with him. Bereshit 32:26


+ 130 And the angel said, Let me go, for dawn is breaking, but Jacob said, I will not let you go unless you have blessed me. Bereshit 32:27


+ 124 So he said to him, What is your name? and he said, Jacob. Bereshit 32:28


+ 154 And he said, Your name shall no longer be called Jacob, but Israel, because you have commanding power with an angel of God and with men, and you have prevailed. Bereshit 32:29


+ 153 And Jacob asked and said, Now tell me your name, and he said, Why is it that you ask for my name? And he blessed him there. Bereshit 32:30


+ 141 And Jacob named the place Peniel, for he said, I saw an angel face to face, and my soul was saved. Bereshit 32:31


+ 150 Therefore, the children of Israel may not eat the displaced tendon, which is on the socket of the hip, until this day, for he touched the socket of Jacob's hip, in the hip sinew. Bereshit 32:33


+ 149 Jacob lifted his eyes and saw, and behold, Esau was coming, and with him were four hundred men; so he divided the children with Leah and with Rachel and with the two maidservants. Bereshit 33:1


+ 149 Thereupon Jacob said, Please no! If indeed I have found favor in your eyes, then you shall take my gift from my hand, because I have seen your face, which is like seeing the face of an angel, and you have accepted me. Bereshit 33:10


+ 136 And Jacob traveled to Succoth and built himself a house, and for his cattle he made booths; therefore he named the place Succoth. Bereshit 33:17


+ 143 And Jacob came safely to the city of Shechem, which is in the land of Canaan, when he came from Padan aram, and he encamped before the city. Bereshit 33:18


+ 123 Dinah, the daughter of Leah, whom she had borne to Jacob, went out to look about among the daughters of the land. Bereshit 34:1


+ 164 And his soul cleaved to Dinah the daughter of Jacob; he loved the girl and spoke to the girl's heart. Bereshit 34:3


+ 140 Jacob had heard that he had defiled his daughter Dinah, but his sons were with his livestock in the field, and Jacob kept silent until they came home. Bereshit 34:5


+ 125 And Hamor, the father of Shechem, went out to Jacob to speak with him. Bereshit 34:6


+ 151 And Jacob's sons had come from the field when they heard, and the men were grieved, and they burned fiercely, because he had committed a scandalous act in Israel, to lie with a daughter of Jacob, and such ought not to be done. Bereshit 34:7


+ 189 Thereupon, Jacob's sons answered Shechem and his father Hamor with cunning, and they spoke, because after all he had defiled their sister Dinah. Bereshit 34:13


+ 130 And the young man did not delay to do the thing because he desired Jacob's daughter, and he was the most honored in all his father's household. Bereshit 34:19


+ 188 Now it came to pass on the third day, when they were in pain, that Jacob's two sons, Simeon and Levi, Dinah's brothers, each took his sword, and they came upon the city with confidence, and they slew every male. Bereshit 34:25


+ 118 Jacob's sons came upon the slain and plundered the city that had defiled their sister. Bereshit 34:27


+ 167 Thereupon, Jacob said to Simeon and to Levi, You have troubled me, to discredit me among the inhabitants of the land, among the Canaanites and among the Perizzites, and I am few in number, and they will gather against me, and I and my household will be destroyed. Bereshit 34:30


+ 108 And God said to Jacob, Arise and go up to Beth el and abide there, and make there an altar to the God Who appeared to you when you fled from your brother Esau. Bereshit 35:1


+ 144 Thereupon Jacob said to his household and to all those who were with him, Remove the deities of the foreign nations, which are in your midst, purify yourselves and change your clothes. Bereshit 35:2


+ 145 And they gave Jacob all the deities of the nations that were in their possession and the earrings that were in their ears, and Jacob hid them under the terebinth that was near Shechem. Bereshit 35:4


+ 145 Then they traveled, and the fear of God was upon the cities that were around them, so that they did not pursue Jacob's sons. Bereshit 35:5


+ 120 And Jacob came to Luz, which is in the land of Canaan that is Beth el he and all the people who were with him. Bereshit 35:6


+ 140 And God appeared again to Jacob when he came from Padan aram, and He blessed him. Bereshit 35:9


+ 135 God said to him, Your name is Jacob. Your name shall no longer be called Jacob, but Israel shall be your name. And He named him Israel. Bereshit 35:10


+ 133 Now Jacob had erected a monument in the place where He had spoken with him, a stone monument, and he poured a libation upon it, and then he poured oil upon it. Bereshit 35:14


+ 119 Jacob named the place where God had spoken with him Beth el. Bereshit 35:15


+ 122 And Jacob erected a monument on her grave; that is the tombstone of Rachel until this day. Bereshit 35:20


+ 135 And it came to pass when Israel sojourned in that land, that Reuben went and lay with Bilhah, his father's concubine, and Israel heard of it, and so, the sons of Jacob were twelve. Bereshit 35:22


+ 124 The sons of Leah were Reuben, Jacob's firstborn, and Simeon, Levi, Judah, Issachar, and Zebulun. Bereshit 35:23


+ 129 The sons of Zilpah, Leah's maidservant: Gad and Asher. These are Jacob's sons who were born to him in Padan aram. Bereshit 35:26


+ 123 And Jacob came to his father Isaac, to Mamre, Kiriath arba, which is Hebron, where Abraham and Isaac dwelt. Bereshit 35:27


+ 133 And Isaac expired and died and was gathered in to his peoples, old and sated with days, and his sons, Esau and Jacob, buried him. Bereshit 35:29


+ 147 And Esau took his wives, his sons, and his daughters and all the people of his household, and his cattle and all his animals and all his property that he had acquired in the land of Canaan, and he went to a nother land, because of his brother Jacob. Bereshit 36:6


+ 117 Jacob dwelt in the land of his father's sojournings, in the land of Canaan. Bereshit 37:1


+ 163 These are the generations of Jacob: when Joseph was seventeen years old, being a shepherd, he was with his brothers with the flocks, and he was a lad, and was with the sons of Bilhah and with the sons of Zilpah, his father's wives; and Joseph brought evil tales about them to their father. Bereshit 37:2


+ 145 And Jacob rent his garments, and he put sackcloth on his loins, and he mourned for his son many days. Bereshit 37:34


+ 127 Jacob saw that there was grain being sold in Egypt; so Jacob said to his sons, "Why do you appear satiated?" Bereshit 42:1


+ 149 But Joseph's brother, Benjamin, Jacob did not send with his brothers, because, he said, Lest misfortune befall him. Bereshit 42:4


+ 130 And they came to Jacob their father, to the land of Canaan, and they told him all that had befallen them, saying, Bereshit 42:29


+ 136 And their father Jacob said to them, You have bereaved me-Joseph is gone, and Simeon is gone, and you want to take Benjamin! All these troubles have come upon me. Bereshit 42:36


+ 133 But he Jacob said, My son shall not go down with you, because his brother is dead, and he alone is left, and if misfortune befalls him on the way you are going, you will bring down my gray head in sorrow to the grave. Bereshit 42:38


+ 115 So they went up from Egypt, and they came to the land of Canaan, to their father, Jacob. Bereshit 45:25


+ 126 And they told him all of Joseph's words that he had said to them, and he saw the wagons that Joseph had sent to carry him, and the spirit of their father Jacob was revived. Bereshit 45:27


+ 118 And God said to Israel in visions of the night, and He said, "Jacob, Jacob!" And he said, "Here I am." Bereshit 46:2


+ 152 And Jacob arose from Beer sheba, and the sons of Israel carried their father Jacob and their young children and their wives, in the wagons Pharaoh had sent to carry him. Bereshit 46:5


+ 145 And they took their livestock and their possessions that they had acquired in the land of Canaan, and they came to Egypt, Jacob and all his descendants with him. Bereshit 46:6


+ 138 And these are the names of the children of Israel who were coming to Egypt: Jacob and his sons Jacob's firstborn was Reuben. Bereshit 46:8


+ 130 These are the sons of Leah, that she bore to Jacob in Padan Aram, and Dinah his daughter. All the souls of his sons and daughters were thirty three. Bereshit 46:15


+ 167 These are the sons of Zilpah, whom Laban gave to his daughter Leah, and she bore these to Jacob, sixteen souls. Bereshit 46:18


+ 115 The sons of Rachel, Jacob's wife, were Joseph and Benjamin. Bereshit 46:19


+ 100 These the sons of Rachel, who were born to Jacob: all the souls were fourteen. Bereshit 46:22


+ 146 These are the sons of Bilhah, whom Laban had given to his daughter Rachel, and she bore these to Jacob, all the souls were seven. Bereshit 46:25


+ 135 All the souls coming to Egypt with Jacob, those descended from him, excluding the wives of Jacob's sons, all the souls were sixty six. Bereshit 46:26


+ 120 And Joseph's sons, who were born to him in Egypt, two souls; all the souls of the house of Jacob who came to Egypt were seventy. Bereshit 46:27


+ 128 So Joseph brought his father Jacob and stood him before Pharaoh, and Jacob greeted Pharaoh. Bereshit 47:7


+ 123 And Pharaoh said to Jacob, How many are the days of the years of your life? Bereshit 47:8


+ 135 And Jacob said to Pharaoh, The days of the years of my sojournings are one hundred thirty years. The days of the years of my life have been few and miserable, and they have not reached the days of the years of the lives of my forefathers in the days of their sojournings. Bereshit 47:9


+ 114 So Jacob blessed Pharaoh and left Pharaoh's presence. Bereshit 47:10


+ 153 And Jacob lived in the land of Egypt for seventeen years, and Jacob's days, the years of his life, were a hundred and forty seven years. Bereshit 47:28


+ 125 And someone told Jacob and said, Behold, your son Joseph is coming to you. And Israel summoned his strength and sat up on the bed. Bereshit 48:2


+ 147 And Jacob said to Joseph, "Almighty God appeared to me in Luz, in the land of Canaan, and He blessed me. Bereshit 48:3


+ 124 And Joseph took them out from upon his Jacob's knees, and he prostrated himself to the ground. Bereshit 48:12
