Jacob bought the plot of land where he camped from the family of Hamor, the father of Shechem, for 100 pieces of silver.
And beyond what I have given your brothers, I am giving you an extra portion of the land that I took from the Amorites with my sword and bow."
"Soon I will die," Joseph told his brothers, "but God will surely come to help you and lead you out of this land of Egypt. He will bring you back to the land he solemnly promised to give to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob."
Then Joseph made the sons of Israel swear an oath, and he said, "When God comes to help you and lead you back, you must take my bones with you."
