Large Dutch Delft dish decorated with an Old Testament Scene, circa 1850

All those who went to Egypt with Jacob, those who were his direct descendants, not counting his sons’ wives, numbered sixty-six persons.  With the two sons who had been born to Joseph in Egypt, the members of Jacob’s family, which went to Egypt, were seventy in all. Now Jacob sent Judah ahead of him to Joseph to get directions to Goshen. When they arrived in the region of Goshen,  Joseph had his chariot made ready and went to Goshen to meet his father Israel. As soon as Joseph appeared before him, he threw his arms around his father  and wept for a long time.
