Jacob asked to see all his sons.
He blessed each one of them.
He told them they would each have big families.
Jacob told them where he wanted to be buried.
It was the field where Abraham and Sarah were buried.
Isaac and Rebekah and Leah were buried there.
Jacob died. Joseph cried.
Joseph and his brothers took their father home.
They buried him in the field as they promised.
Then they all went back to Egypt.
Joseph’s brothers were afraid.
They told Joseph they were sorry for what they did to him.
Joseph told them not to be afraid.
He was kind to them.
