Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Genesis 48:21

_ _ Israel said unto Joseph, Behold, I die — The patriarch could speak of death with composure, but he wished to prepare Joseph and the rest of the family for the shock.

_ _ but God shall be with you — Jacob, in all probability, was not authorized to speak of their bondage — he dwelt only on the certainty of their restoration to Canaan.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Genesis 48:8-22.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Genesis 48:21

I die, but God shall be with you, and bring you again — This assurance was given them, and carefully preserved among them, that they might neither love Egypt too much when it favoured them, nor fear it too much when it frowned upon them. These words of Jacob furnish us with comfort in reference to the death of our friends: But God shall be with us, and his gracious presence is sufficient to make up the loss. They leave us, but he will never fail us. He will bring us to the land of our fathers, the heavenly Canaan, whither our godly fathers are gone before us. If God be with us while we stay behind in this world, and will receive us shortly to be with them that are gone before to a better world, we ought not to sorrow as those that have no hope.
