Ge 46:1
46:1 And Israel took his journey with all that he had, and came
     to Beersheba, and {a} offered sacrifices unto the God of
     his father Isaac.

     (a) By this he signified both that he worshipped the true
         God, and that he kept in his heart the possession of
         that land from which need drove him at that time.

Ge 46:4
46:4 I will {b} go down with thee into Egypt; and I will also
     surely {c} bring thee up [again]: and Joseph shall {d} put
     his hand upon thine eyes.

     (b) Conducting you by my power.
     (c) In your posterity.
     (d) Shall shut your eyes when you die: which belongs to him
         that was most dear or chief of the kindred.

Ge 46:32
46:32 And the men [are] {e} shepherds, for their trade hath been
      to feed cattle; and they have brought their flocks, and
      their herds, and all that they have.

      (e) He was not ashamed of his father and kindred, though
          they were of base condition.

Ge 46:34
46:34 That ye shall say, Thy servants' trade hath been about
      cattle from our youth even until now, both we, [and] also
      our fathers: that ye may dwell in the land of Goshen; for
      every shepherd [is] an {f} abomination unto the Egyptians.

      (f) God permits the world to hate his own, so they will
          forsake the filth of the world, and cling to him.
