Genesis 47:29-30

29-30When the time came for Israel to die, he called his son Joseph and said, "Do me this favor. Put your hand under my thigh, a sign that you're loyal and true to me to the end. Don't bury me in Egypt. When I lie down with my fathers, carry me out of Egypt and bury me alongside them."

"I will," he said. "I'll do what you've asked."

31Israel said, "Promise me." Joseph promised.

Israel bowed his head in submission and gratitude from his bed.
