 47:31
47:30 Let me lie with my fathers. Carry me out of Egypt, and bury me in their grave.'

'I will do as you say,' replied [Joseph].
Veshachavti im-avotay unesatani mi-Mitsrayim ukvartani bikevuratam vayomer anochi e'eseh chidvarecha.

47:31 'Swear to me,' said [Jacob].

[Joseph] made an oath to him, and, from where he was on the bed, Israel bowed.
Vayomer hishave'ah li vayishava lo vayishtachu Yisra'el al-rosh hamitah.




Commentary:

from where he was on the bed...
  Or, 'he bowed, leaning on his staff' (Shmuel ben Chofni Gaon; Septuagint). See Genesis 37:10 (Lekach Tov).
