17.8. וַיָּבֹא עֲמָלֵק וַיִּלָּחֶם עִם־יִשְׂרָאֵל בִּרְפִידִם׃ 17.9. וַיֹּאמֶר מֹשֶׁה אֶל־יְהוֹשֻׁעַ בְּחַר־לָנוּ אֲנָשִׁים וְצֵא הִלָּחֵם בַּעֲמָלֵק מָחָר אָנֹכִי נִצָּב עַל־רֹאשׁ הַגִּבְעָה וּמַטֵּה הָאֱלֹהִים בְּיָדִי׃ 17.11. וְהָיָה כַּאֲשֶׁר יָרִים מֹשֶׁה יָדוֹ וְגָבַר יִשְׂרָאֵל וְכַאֲשֶׁר יָנִיחַ יָדוֹ וְגָבַר עֲמָלֵק׃ 17.12. וִידֵי מֹשֶׁה כְּבֵדִים וַיִּקְחוּ־אֶבֶן וַיָּשִׂימוּ תַחְתָּיו וַיֵּשֶׁב עָלֶיהָ וְאַהֲרֹן וְחוּר תָּמְכוּ בְיָדָיו מִזֶּה אֶחָד וּמִזֶּה אֶחָד וַיְהִי יָדָיו אֱמוּנָה עַד־בֹּא הַשָּׁמֶשׁ׃ 17.13. וַיַּחֲלֹשׁ יְהוֹשֻׁעַ אֶת־עֲמָלֵק וְאֶת־עַמּוֹ לְפִי־חָרֶב׃ 17.8. Then came Amalek, and fought with Israel in Rephidim." 17.9. And Moses said unto Joshua: ‘Choose us out men, and go out, fight with Amalek; tomorrow I will stand on the top of the hill with the rod of God in my hand.’" 17.10. So Joshua did as Moses had said to him, and fought with Amalek; and Moses, Aaron, and Hur went up to the top of the hill." 17.11. And it came to pass, when Moses held up his hand, that Israel prevailed; and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed." 17.12. But Moses’hands were heavy; and they took a stone, and put it under him, and he sat thereon; and Aaron and Hur stayed up his hands, the one on the one side, and the other on the other side; and his hands were steady until the going down of the sun." 17.13. And Joshua discomfited Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword."

And the children of Heth answered Abraham, saying unto him:" 23.6. ’Hear us, my lord: thou art a mighty prince among us; in the choice of our sepulchres bury thy dead; none of us shall withhold from thee his sepulchre, but that thou mayest bury thy dead.’" 23.7. And Abraham rose up, and bowed down to the people of the land, even to the children of Heth." 23.8. And he spoke with them, saying: ‘If it be your mind that I should bury my dead out of my sight, hear me, and entreat for me to Ephron the son of Zohar," 23.9. that he may give me the cave of Machpelah, which he hath, which is in the end of his field; for the full price let him give it to me in the midst of you for a possession of a burying-place.’" 23.10. Now Ephron was sitting in the midst of the children of Heth; and Ephron the Hittite answered Abraham in the hearing of the children of Heth, even of all that went in at the gate of his city, saying:" 23.11. ’Nay, my lord, hear me: the field give I thee, and the cave that is therein, I give it thee; in the presence of the sons of my people give I it thee; bury thy dead.’" 23.12. And Abraham bowed down before the people of the land." 23.13. And he spoke unto Ephron in the hearing of the people of the land, saying: ‘But if thou wilt, I pray thee, hear me: I will give the price of the field; take it of me, and I will bury my dead there.’" 23.14. And Ephron answered Abraham, saying unto him:" 23.15. ’My lord, hearken unto me: a piece of land worth four hundred shekels of silver, what is that betwixt me and thee? bury therefore thy dead.’" 23.16. And Abraham hearkened unto Ephron; and Abraham weighed to Ephron the silver, which he had named in the hearing of the children of Heth, four hundred shekels of silver, current money with the merchant." 23.17. So the field of Ephron, which was in Machpelah, which was before Mamre, the field, and the cave which was therein, and all the trees that were in the field, that were in all the border thereof round about, were made sure" 23.18. unto Abraham for a possession in the presence of the children of Heth, before all that went in at the gate of his city." 23.19. And after this, Abraham buried Sarah his wife in the cave of the field of Machpelah before Mamre—the same is Hebron—in the land of Canaan." 23.20. And the field, and the cave that is therein, were made sure unto Abraham for a possession of a burying-place by the children of Heth." 24.67. And Isaac brought her into his mother Sarah’s tent, and took Rebekah, and she became his wife; and he loved her. And Isaac was comforted for his mother." 25.1. And Abraham took another wife, and her name was Keturah." 25.2. And she bore him Zimran, and Jokshan, and Medan, and Midian, and Ishbak, and Shuah." 25.7. And these are the days of the years of Abraham’s life which he lived, a hundred threescore and fifteen years." 25.8. And Abraham expired, and died in a good old age, an old man, and full of years; and was gathered to his people." 25.9. And Isaac and Ishmael his sons buried him in the cave of Machpelah, in the field of Ephron the son of Zohar the Hittite, which is before Mamre;" 25.10. the field which Abraham purchased of the children of Heth; there was Abraham buried, and Sarah his wife." 25.11. And it came to pass after the death of Abraham, that God blessed Isaac his son; and Isaac dwelt by Beer-lahai-roi." 25.17. And these are the years of the life of Ishmael, a hundred and thirty and seven years; and he expired and died; and was gathered unto his people." 25.18. And they dwelt from Havilah unto Shur that is before Egypt, as thou goest toward Asshur: over against all his brethren he did settle." 25.26. And after that came forth his brother, and his hand had hold on Esau’s heel; and his name was called Jacob. And Isaac was threescore years old when she bore them." 26.4. and I will multiply thy seed as the stars of heaven, and will give unto thy seed all these lands; and by thy seed shall all the nations of the earth bless themselves;" 26.5. because that Abraham hearkened to My voice, and kept My charge, My commandments, My statutes, and My laws.’" 26.19. And Isaac’s servants digged in the valley, and found there a well of living water." 28.4. and give thee the blessing of Abraham, to thee, and to thy seed with thee; that thou mayest inherit the land of thy sojournings, which God gave unto Abraham.’" 32.3. And Jacob said when he saw them: ‘This is God’s camp.’ And he called the name of that place Mahanaim." 32.22. So the present passed over before him; and he himself lodged that night in the camp." 32.23. And he rose up that night, and took his two wives, and his two handmaids, and his eleven children, and passed over the ford of the Jabbok." 32.25. And Jacob was left alone; and there wrestled a man with him until the breaking of the day." 32.31. And Jacob called the name of the place Peniel: ‘for I have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved.’" 33.17. And Jacob journeyed to Succoth, and built him a house, and made booths for his cattle. Therefore the name of the place is called Succoth." 35.1. And God said unto Jacob: ‘Arise, go up to Beth-el, and dwell there; and make there an altar unto God, who appeared unto thee when thou didst flee from the face of Esau thy brother.’" 35.2. Then Jacob said unto his household, and to all that were with him: ‘Put away the strange gods that are among you, and purify yourselves, and change your garments;" 35.3. and let us arise, and go up to Beth-el; and I will make there an altar unto God, who answered me in the day of my distress, and was with me in the way which I went.’" 35.4. And they gave unto Jacob all the foreign gods which were in their hand, and the rings which were in their ears; and Jacob hid them under the terebinth which was by Shechem." 35.5. And they journeyed; and a terror of God was upon the cities that were round about them, and they did not pursue after the sons of Jacob." 35.6. So Jacob came to Luz, which is in the land of Canaan—the same is Beth-el—he and all the people that were with him." 35.8. And Deborah Rebekah’s nurse died, and she was buried below Beth-el under the oak; and the name of it was called Allon-bacuth." 35.16. And they journeyed from Beth-el; and there was still some way to come to Ephrath; and Rachel travailed, and she had hard labour." 35.17. And it came to pass, when she was in hard labour, that the mid-wife said unto her: ‘Fear not; for this also is a son for thee.’" 35.18. And it came to pass, as her soul was in departing—for she died—that she called his name Ben-oni; but his father called him Benjamin." 35.19. And Rachel died, and was buried in the way to Ephrath—the same is Beth-lehem." 35.20. And Jacob set up a pillar upon her grave; the same is the pillar of Rachel’s grave unto this day." 35.28. And the days of Isaac were a hundred and fourscore years." 35.29. And Isaac expired, and died, and was gathered unto his people, old and full of days; and Esau and Jacob his sons buried him." 46.31. And Joseph said unto his brethren, and unto his father’s house: ‘I will go up, and tell Pharaoh, and will say unto him: My brethren, and my father’s house, who were in the land of Canaan, are come unto me;" 46.32. and the men are shepherds, for they have been keepers of cattle; and they have brought their flocks, and their herds, and all that they have." 46.33. And it shall come to pass, when Pharaoh shall call you, and shall say: What is your occupation?" 46.34. that ye shall say: Thy servants have been keepers of cattle from our youth even until now, both we, and our fathers; that ye may dwell in the land of Goshen; for every shepherd is an abomination unto the Egyptians.’" 49.29. And be charged them, and said unto them: ‘I am to be gathered unto my people; bury me with my fathers in the cave that is in the field of Ephron the Hittite," 49.30. in the cave that is in the field of Machpelah, which is before Mamre, in the land of Canaan, which Abraham bought with the field from Ephron the Hittite for a possession of a burying-place." 49.31. There they buried Abraham and Sarah his wife; there they buried Isaac and Rebekah his wife; and there I buried Leah." 50.22. And Joseph dwelt in Egypt, he, and his father’s house; and Joseph lived a hundred and ten years." 50.23. And Joseph saw Ephraim’s children of the third generation; the children also of Machir the son of Manasseh were born upon Joseph’s knees." 50.24. And Joseph said unto his brethren: ‘I die; but God will surely remember you, and bring you up out of this land unto the land which He swore to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob.’" 50.25. And Joseph took an oath of the children of Israel, saying: ‘God will surely remember you, and ye shall carry up my bones from hence.’" 50.26. So Joseph died, being a hundred and ten years old. And they embalmed him, and he was put in a coffin in Egypt."

And once Moses was born, the entire house was filled with light. Her father arose and kissed her on her head. He said to her: My daughter, your prophecy has been fulfilled. And once they put him into the river, her father arose and hit her on her head. He said to her: My daughter, where is your prophecy? And this is as it is written: “And his sister stood afar off, to know what would be done to him”(Exodus 2:4), i.e., bto know what will be the ultimateresolution bof her prophecy. /b,§ The mishna teaches: bJoseph meritedto bury his father, resulting in a display of great honor to his father. The Gemara begins its discussion of the burial of Jacob by asking: bWhat is different initially that it is written: “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” (Genesis 50:7), band afterwardit says in the following verse: b“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 Goshen” (Genesis 50:8), indicating that the brothers of Joseph were second in importance to the Egyptians? bAnd what is different at the end that it is written: “And Joseph returned into Egypt, he, and his brethren,” and afterwardit states: b“And all that went up with him to bury his father,after he had buried his father” (Genesis 50:14), placing the brothers before the Egyptians?, bRabbi Yoḥa says: Initially, beforethe Egyptians bsaw the honor of the Jewish people,as the Gemara will soon explain, bthey did not treat themwith bhonor,so the brothers were behind the servants of Pharaoh. bAnd in the end, when they saw their honor, they treatedthe brothers with bhonor. /b,The Gemara explains what honor was accorded to the family of Jacob: bAs it is written: “And they came to the threshing floor of Atad,which is beyond the Jordan, and there they wailed with a very great and sore wailing; and he made a mourning for his father seven days” (Genesis 50:10). The word atad is the name of the boxthorn bush. bAnd does a boxthornbush bhave a threshing floor?Thorns are not collected and eaten. bRabbi Abbahu says:This bteaches that they surrounded the casket of Jacob with crowns, like this threshing floor that is surrounded with boxthorns, because the children of Esau and the children of Ishmael and the children of Keturahall bcameto the burial of Jacob.,A Sage btaught:Initially, bthey all came towage bwarwith the family of Jacob, but bonce they saw the crown of Joseph,the viceroy of Egypt, bhanging on the casket of Jacob, they all took their crowns and hung them on the casket of Jacob.A Sage btaught: Thirty-six crowns were hung on the casket of Jacob.This was the great honor accorded to the family of Jacob.,The Gemara continues its discussion of Jacob’s burial. The verse states: b“And there they wailed with a very great and sore wailing”(Genesis 50:10). It is btaught: Even horses and even donkeysparticipated in the mourning., bOnce they reached the Cave of Machpelah, Esau came and was preventing themfrom burying Jacob there. bHe said to them:It says: “And Jacob came unto Isaac his father to bMamre, to Kiryat Arba, the same is Hebron,where Abraham and Isaac sojourned” (Genesis 35:27). bAnd Rabbi Yitzḥak says:It is called bKiryat Arbabecause there bwere four couplesburied there: bAdam and Eve, Abraham and Sarah, Isaac and Rebecca, Jacob and Leah.Esau said: Jacob bburied Leah in hisspot, band thespot bthat is remaining is mine. /b,The children of Jacob bsaid toEsau: bYou soldyour rights btoJacob. Esau bsaid to them: Though I sold the birthright, did Ialso bsellmy rights to the burial site as ban ordinarybrother? The brothers bsaid to him: Yes,you also sold to Jacob those rights, bas it is writtenthat Joseph stated: “My father made me swear, saying: Behold, I die; bin my grave that I have dug [ ikariti /i] for mein the land of Canaan, there shall you bury me” (Genesis 50:5). bAnd Rabbi Yoḥa says in the name of Rabbi Shimon ben Yehotzadak:The word ikira /iin the verse bis nothing otherthan ba term of a sale [ imekhira /i]sharing a similar root, bbecause in the cities overseas they call a sale ikira /i. /b,Esau bsaid to them: Bring the billof sale bto me,i.e., you can’t prove your claims. bThey said to him: The billof sale bis in the land of Egypt.They said: bAnd who will goto bring it? bNaphtali will go, for he is as fast as a doe, as it is written: “Naphtali is a doe let loose, he gives goodly words”(Genesis 49:21). bRabbi Abbahu says: Do not readit as “ bgoodly words [ iimrei shafer /i]”; rather,read it as iimrei sefer /i,i.e., the words of the book, as he returned to Egypt to retrieve the bill of sale.,The Gemara relates: bHushim, the son of Dan, was there and his ears were heavy,i.e., he was hard of hearing. bHe said to them: Whatis bthisthat is delaying the burial? bAnd they said to him: This one,Esau, bis preventingus from burying Jacob buntil Naphtali comesback bfrom the land of Egyptwith the bill of sale. bHe said to them: And until Naphtali comesback bfrom the land of Egypt willour bfather’s father lie in degradation? He took a club [ ikulepa /i] and hitEsau bon the head,and Esau’s beyes fell out and they fell on the legs of Jacob. Jacob opened his eyes and smiled. And this is that which is written: “The righteous shall rejoice when he sees the vengeance; he shall wash his feet in the blood of the wicked”(Psalms 58:11)., bAt that moment the prophecy of Rebecca was fulfilled, as it is writtenthat Rebecca said of Jacob and Esau: b“Why should I be bereaved of you both in one day?”(Genesis 27:45), as Rebecca foresaw that the future bereavement for both her sons would be on the same day. The Gemara comments: bAnd although their deaths were not on the same day, in any event their burials were on the same day,as Esau was killed and buried on the same day that Jacob was buried.,The Gemara returns to discuss the involvement of Joseph and his brothers in the burial of their father: bAnd if Joseph would not have dealt withthe burial of Jacob, bwould his brothers not have dealt with it? But isn’t it written: “For his sons carried him into the land of Canaan,and buried him in the cave of the field of Machpelah” (Genesis 50:13)? Since it is evident that the brothers were involved in the burial, why did they not deal with Jacob’s burial needs from the outset? The Gemara answers: bThey said: AllowJoseph to take care of it, because there is bmore honorfor our father to be prepared for burial bby royalty than by commonpeople b[ ihedyotot /i]. /b,§ It states further in the mishna: bWho, to us,had ba greaterburial bthan Joseph,as it was none other than Moses who involved himself in transporting his coffin. bThe Sages taughtin the iTosefta(4:6–7): bCome and see how beloved mitzvot are to Moses our teacher. As,at the time of the Exodus, ball the Jewish people were involved intaking bthe plunderfrom Egypt, band he was involved inthe performance of bmitzvot, as it is stated: “The wise in heart will take mitzvot”(Proverbs 10:8).,The Gemara asks: bAnd from where did Moses our teacher know where Joseph was buried?The Sages bsaid: Serah, the daughter of Asher, remained from that generationthat initially descended to Egypt with Jacob. bMoses went to herand bsaid to her: Do you know anythingabout bwhere Joseph is buried? She said to him: The Egyptians fashioned a metal casket for him and set it in the Nile [ iNilus /i] Riveras an augury bso that its water would be blessed. Moses went and stood on the bank of the Nile.He bsaid toJoseph: bJoseph, Joseph, the time has arrivedabout bwhich the Holy One, Blessed be He, took an oathsaying bthat I,i.e., God, bwill redeem you. Andthe time for fulfillment of bthe oath that you administered to the Jewish peoplethat they will bury you in Eretz Yisrael bhas arrived. If you show yourself,it is bgood,but bif not, we are clear from your oath. Immediately, the casket of Joseph floatedto the top of the water., bAnd do not wonder how ironcan bfloat, as it is writtenin the verses describing how Elisha was able to cause iron to float: b“But as one was felling a beam, the ax head fell into the water;and he cried, and said: bAlas, my master! For it was borrowed. And the man of God said: Where did it fall? And he showed him the place. And he cut down a stick, and cast it in there, and the iron floated up”(II Kings 6:5–6). bAnd arethese bmatters notinferred ia fortiori /i: And just as Elisha,who was a mere bstudent of Elijah, and Elijahwas a mere bstudent of Moses,as Elijah studied the Torah of Moses, was able to cause the bironto bfloat before him, all the more sowould it float bbefore Moses our teacherhimself.,The Gemara now presents a different version of where Joseph was buried. bRabbi Natan says:Joseph bwas buried in the crypt [ ikabbarnit /i] of kings. Moses went and stood by the crypt of kingsand bsaid: Joseph, the time has arrivedabout bwhich the Holy One, Blessed be He, took an oathsaying bthat: I will redeem you. Andthe time for fulfillment of bthe oath that you administered to the Jewish peoplethat they will bury you in Eretz Yisrael bhas arrived. If you show yourself,it is bgood, but if not, we are clear from your oath. At that moment, the casket of Joseph shookamong the caskets. bMoses took it and brought itover bto himself. /b, bAnd all those years that the Jewish people were in the wilderness, these two arks, onea casket bof a dead man,Joseph, band onethe Ark bof the Divine Presence,i.e., the Ark of the Covet, bwere traveling together, and passersby would say: What is the nature of these two arks? They saidto them: bOneis bof a dead person and oneis bof the Divine Presence.The passersby would ask: bAndin bwhatway is it bthe manner of a dead person to travel with the Divine Presence? They saidin response:
