33  And when Jacob made an end of charging his sons, he gathered up his feet into the bed, and expired, and was gathered unto his people.

33  And Jacob ceased giving charges to his sons; and having lifted up his feet on the bed, he died, and was gathered to his people.

33  And having finished these commands by which he instructed his sons, he drew his feet onto the bed, and he passed away. And he was gathered to his people.
