What does Genesis 46:6 mean? [⇑ See verse text ⇑]

The large family built by Jacob is traveling from the Promised Land of Canaan to Egypt (Genesis 46:1–5). There they will settle in a fertile region provided by Pharaoh, who greatly favors Jacob's son Joseph (Genesis 45:16–20). Jacob and the women and children are traveling by wagon. In addition to the people, the expedition includes everything they own. Jacob is quite a wealthy man, so the number of livestock and the amount of goods must be significant. God has indeed richly blessed Jacob and his sons during their lives in the land of Canaan.

Finally, Jacob and all his offspring arrive in Egypt.
