Genesis 1, 2,

Genesis 50:1 And Joseph fell upon his father's face, and wept upon him, and
2 And Joseph commanded his servants the physicians to embalm his father: and the
physicians embalmed Israel.
3 And forty days were fulfilled for him; for so are fulfilled the days of those
which are embalmed: and the Egyptians mourned for him threescore and ten days.
4 And when the days of his mourning were past, Joseph spake unto the house of
Pharaoh, saying, If now I have found grace in your eyes, speak, I pray you, in
the ears of Pharaoh, saying,
5 My father made me swear, saying, Lo, I die: in my grave which I have digged
for me in the land of Canaan, there shalt thou bury me. Now therefore let me go
up, I pray thee, and bury my father, and I will come again.
6 And Pharaoh said, Go up, and bury thy father, according as he made thee swear.
7 And Joseph went up to bury his father: and with him went up all the servants
of Pharaoh, the elders of his house, and all the elders of the land of Egypt,
8 And all the house of Joseph, and his brethren, and his father's house: only
their little ones, and their flocks, and their herds, they left in the land of
9 And there went up with him both chariots and horsemen: and it was a very great
10 And they came to the threshing floor of Atad, which is beyond Jordan, and
there they mourned with a great and very sore lamentation: and he made a
mourning for his father seven days.
11 And when the inhabitants of the land, the Canaanites, saw the mourning in the
floor of Atad, they said, This is a grievous mourning to the Egyptians:
wherefore the name of it was called Abel-mizraim, which is beyond Jordan.
12 And his sons did unto him according as he commanded them:
Abel-mizraim means the mouring of the Egyptians
13 For his sons carried him into the land of Canaan, and buried him in the cave
of the field of Machpelah, which Abraham bought with the field for a possession
of a buryingplace of Ephron the Hittite, before Mamre.
14 And Joseph returned into Egypt, he, and his brethren, and all that went up
with him to bury his father, after he had buried his father.
15 And when Joseph's brethren saw that their father was dead, they said, Joseph
will peradventure hate us, and will certainly requite us all the evil which we
did unto him.
16 And they sent a messenger unto Joseph, saying, Thy father did command before
he died, saying,
17 So shall ye say unto Joseph, Forgive, I pray thee now, the trespass of thy
brethren, and their sin; for they did unto thee evil: and now, we pray thee,
forgive the trespass of the servants of the God of thy father. And Joseph wept
when they spake unto him.
18 And his brethren also went and fell down before his face; and they said,
Behold, we be thy servants.
19 And Joseph said unto them, Fear not: for am I in the place of God?
20 But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to
bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive.
You can feel the love Joseph had for his
21 Now therefore fear ye not: I will nourish you, and your little ones. And he
comforted them, and spake kindly unto them.
It was God's plan that his brothers sold him.
Joseph knew it was God's plan, he loved his
22 And Joseph dwelt in Egypt, he, and his father's house: and Joseph lived an
hundred and ten years.
Joseph loved his brothers and gave them kindly
23 And Joseph saw Ephraim's children of the third generation: the children also
of Machir the son of Manasseh were brought up upon Joseph's knees.
Joseph died at the age of 110
100 means the children of the promise
10 means the
perfection of Divine order, commencing "to begin
or start" , as it does, altogether new series of
24 And Joseph said unto his brethren, I die: and God will surely visit you, and
bring you out of this land unto the land which he sware to Abraham, to Isaac,
and to Jacob.
25 And Joseph took an oath of the children of Israel, saying, God will surely
visit you, and ye shall carry up my bones from hence.
26 So Joseph died, being an hundred and ten years old: and they embalmed him,
and he was put in a coffin in Egypt.
• Exactly 2520 years from the exile
of Benjamin, Iceland became an independent nation.
The first tribe to be
conquered by the Assyrians was Manasseh,
in 745 B.C. Exactly 2520 years later America became a nation on July 4, 1776.
(Leviticus. 26: 28-46) God warned Israel that if they persisted in continually
breaking His Laws, not only would curses come upon them.
He would punish them for seven times, (a time being 360 years, seven times would
be 2520 years) and would banish them from the land of Palestine and scatter them
among the heathens (like lost sheep)
