Treasury of Scripture

And Israel said to Joseph, Now let me die, since I have seen your face, because you are yet alive.

Genesis 45:28
And Israel said, It is enough; Joseph my son is yet alive: I will go and see him before I die.

Luke 2:29,30
Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, according to thy word: …









(30) Now let me die.--Heb., I would die this time (Genesis 2:23), after I have seen thy face, &c. Calmly will Jacob wait for death now that the great longing of his soul has been satisfied.

Verse 30. - And Israel (realizing something of the same holy satisfaction as he trembled in his son's embrace) said unto Joseph, Now let me die, since I have seen thy face, because thou art still alive - literally, I will die this time, after I have seen thy face, that (Keil, Kalisch), or since, thou art still alive; the meaning of the patriarch being that, since with his own eyes he was now assured of Joseph's happiness, he had nothing more to live for, the last earthly longing of his heart having been completely satisfied, and was perfectly prepared for the last scene of all - ready, whenever God willed, to be gathered to his fathers.
