    VERSE 1
    - fell.
       * Ge 46:4 De 6:7,8 Eph 6:4
    - wept.
       * Ge 23:2 2Ki 13:14 Mr 5:38,39 Joh 11:35-38 Ac 8:2 1Th 4:13
    
    
    VERSE 2 
     - the physicians.
      The Hebrew {ropheim,} from {rapha,} to heal, is literally the
      healers, those whose business it was to heal, or restore the
      body from sickness, by administering proper medicines; and
      when death took place, to heal or preserve it from
      decomposition by embalming.  The word {chanat,} to embalm, is
      also used in Arabic to express the reddening of leather;
      somewhat analogous to our tanning; which is probably the
      grand principal in embalming.
    
    - embalmed.
       * :26 2Ch 16:14 Mt 26:12 Mr 14:8; 16:1 Lu 24:1 Joh 12:7; 19:39,40
    
    
    VERSE 3 
     - forty days.
      We learn from the Greek historians, that the time of mourning
      was while the body remained with the embalmers, which
      Herodotus says was seventy days.  During this time the body
      lay in nitre, the use of which was to dry up all its
      superfluous and noxious moisture:  and when, in the space of
      30 days, this was sufficiently effected, the remaining forty,
      the time mentioned by Diodorus, were employed in anointing it
      with gums and spices to preserve it, which was properly the
      embalming.  This sufficiently explains the phraseology of the
      text.
    
    - mourned.  Heb. wept.  three-score.
       * Nu 20:29 De 21:13; 34:8

       * Ge 14:16

     - chariots.
       * Ge 41:43; 46:29 Ex 14:7,17,28 2Ki 18:24 So 1:9 Ac 8:2
    
    
    VERSE 10 
     - the threshingfloor.
      This place was situated, according to Jerome, between the
      Jordan and the city of Jericho, two miles from the former,
      and three from the latter, where Bethagla was afterwards
      built.  Procopius of Gaza states the same.  As {aataad}
      signifies thorns, the place might have been remarkable for
      their production; though all the versions except the Arabic
      consider it as a proper name.  As Moses wrote or revised his
      history on the east side of Jordan, the term beyond Jordan,
      in his five books, means westward of Jordan; but in other
      parts of Scripture it generally means eastward.
    
    - beyond.
       * :11 De 1:1
    - seven days.
       * :4 Nu 19:11 De 34:8 1Sa 31:13 2Sa 1:17 Job 2:13 Ac 8:2

    VERSE 15 
     - their father.
       * Ge 27:41,42

    VERSE 19 
     - fear not.
       * Ge 45:5 Mt 14:27 Lu 24:37,38
    - for am I.
      It belongs to God to execute vengeance, and Joseph did not
      intend to usurp his prerogative.  Thus he instructed his
      brethren not to fear him, but to fear God; to humble
      themselves before God, and to seek his forgiveness.
    
       * Ge 30:2 De 32:35 2Ki 5:7 Job 34:19-29 Ro 12:19 Heb 10:30

       * Ge 34:3 Isa 40:2 *marg:
    
    
    VERSE 22 
     - an hundred.
      Joseph's life was the shortest of all the patriarchs; for
      which Bp. Patrick gives this reason, he was the son of his
      father's old age.

                           CONCLUDING REMARKS.
    
    Thus terminates the Book of Genesis, the most ancient record in
    the world; including the History of two grand and stupendous
    subjects, Creation and Providence; of each of which it presents
    a summary, but astonishingly minute and detailed accounts.
    From this Book, almost all the ancient philosophers,
    astronomers, chronologists, and historians have taken their
    respective data; and all the modern improvements and accurate
    discoveries in different arts and sciences, have only served to
    confirm the facts detailed by Moses, and to shew, that all the
    ancient writers on these subjects have approached, or receded
    from, truth and the phenomena of Nature, in exactly the same
    proportion as they have followed or receded from, the Mosaic
    history.  The great fact of the deluge is fully confirmed by
    the fossilised remains in every quarter of the globe.  Add to
    this, that general traditions of the deluge have veen traced
    among the Egyptians, Chinese, Japanese, Hindoos, Burmans,
    ancient Goths and Druids, Mexicans, Peruvians, Brazilians,
    North American Indians, Greenlanders, Otaheiteans, Sandwich
    Islanders, and almost every nation under heaven; while the
    allegorical turgidity of these distorted traditions
    sufficiently distinguishes them from the unadorned simplicity
    of the Mosaic narrative.  In fine, without this history the
    world would be in comparative darkness, not knowing whence it
    came, nor whither it goeth.  In the first page, a child may
    learn more in an hour, than all the philosophers in the world
    learned without it in a thousand years.
      The title of this Book is derived from the Septuagint; in
     which it is called [        ,] "Exodus;" or, as it is in the
     Codex Alexandrinus, [                    ,] "the Exodus or
     departure from Egypt;" but it is called in Hebrew Bibles
     [        ,] {Weelleh Shemoth,} these are the names, or merely,
     [             ,] {Shemoth,} names, from the words with which
     it commences.
