What does Genesis 46:13 mean?

The sons and grandsons of Jacob, also called Israel, are listed in this part of Genesis, at the moment the family enters Egypt to survive the famine in the land (Genesis 45:9–11).

Jacob's fifth son Issachar was also born to his wife Leah (Genesis 30:18). Isaachar's sons included Tola, Puvah, Yob, and Shimron. Issachar's descendants would be involved in the trade of dying cloth. It's possible that Tola means "worm" and Puvah means "madder." Yob may be a prayer for another son with the meaning "may God return." Shimron is likely a place name, possibly corresponding to "Samaria."
