What does Genesis 46:14 mean? [⇑ See verse text ⇑]

As Jacob and all his descendants leave behind the Promised Land of Canaan to enter Egypt, their names are listed in this passage.

Jacob's sixth son, Zebulun, was the last male child born to him by his wife Leah (Genesis 30:20). Zebulun's sons include Sered, Elon, and Jahleel. Though the meaning of the name Sered is unknown, Elon means "oak," and Jahleel likely means "may God be kind."
