46:4 I will go to Egypt with you, and I will also bring you back again. Joseph will place his hands on your eyes.'
Anochi ered imcha Mitsraymah ve'anochi a'alcha gam-aloh veYosef yashit yado al-eyneycha.



Commentary:

Joseph will place...
  When a man dies, it was the custom for the son to close his eyes (Zohar 226a; Ibn Ezra; Lekach Tov; cf. Shabbath 77a). Or, 'Joseph will take care of your concerns' (Rashbam; Sforno; cf. Job 9:33).
