Johann Hermann Schein: "Da Jakob vollendet hatte"

Genesis 49:33 & 50:1

Da Jakob vollendet hatte die Gebot an seine Kinder,
tät er seine Füße zusammen aufs Bette
und verschied; und ward versammlet zu seinem Volk.
Da fiel Joseph auf seines Vaters Angesicht
und weinet über ihn und küsset ihn.

When Jacob had finished the instructions to his children, he drew up his feet into the bed and died;
and was gathered to his people.
Then Joseph fell upon his father's face
and wept over him, and kissed him.
