Genesis 50:21-26

21 So don’t be afraid — I will provide for you and your little ones.” In this way he comforted them, speaking kindly to them.

22 Yosef continued living in Egypt, he and his father’s household. Yosef lived 110 years. 

23 Yosef lived to see Efrayim’s great-grandchildren, and the children of M’nasheh’s son Makhir were born on Yosef’s knees.

24 Yosef said to his brothers, “I am dying. But God will surely remember you and bring you up out of this land to the land which he swore to Avraham, Yitz’chak and Ya‘akov.” 

25 Then Yosef took an oath from the sons of Isra’el: “God will surely remember you, and you are to carry my bones up from here.” 

26 So Yosef died at the age of 110, and they embalmed him and put him in a coffin in Egypt.

 

1 Peter 2:11-17

11 Dear friends, I urge you as aliens and temporary residents not to give in to the desires of your old nature, which keep warring against you; 

12 but to live such good lives among the pagans that even though they now speak against you as evil-doers, they will, as a result of seeing your good actions, give glory to God on the Day of his coming. 

13 For the sake of the Lord, submit yourselves to every human authority — whether to the emperor as being supreme, 

14 or to governors as being sent by him to punish wrongdoers and praise those who do what is good. 

15 For it is God’s will that your doing good should silence the ignorant talk of foolish people. 

16 Submit as people who are free, but not letting your freedom serve as an excuse for evil; rather, submit as God’s slaves. 

17 Be respectful to all — keep loving the brotherhood, fearing God and honoring the emperor.
