47:9 'My journey through life has lasted 130 years,' replied Jacob. 'The days of my life have been few and hard. I did not live as long as my fathers did during their pilgrimage through life.'
Vayomer Ya'akov el-Par'oh yemey shney meguray shloshim ume'at shanah me'at vera'im hayu yemey shney chayay velo hisigu et-yemey shney chayey avotay bimey megureyhem.
47:10 With that, Jacob blessed Pharaoh and left his presence.
Vayevarech Ya'akov et-Par'oh vayetse milifney Far'oh.
