Genesis 47:31

Εἶπεν δέ· Ὄμοσόν μοι. καὶ ὤμοσεν αὐτῷ. καὶ προσεκύνησεν Ἰσραὴλ ἐπὶ τὸ ἄκρον τῆς ῥάβδου αὐτοῦ.

Then he said, “Swear to me.” And he swore to him. And Israel bowed down upon the top of his staff.

ויאמר השׁבעה לי וישׁבע לו וישׁתחו ישׂראל על־ראשׁ המטה׃


*   top OR head
*   staff OR walking-stick
*   Greek ῥάβδος = staff. See Hebrews 11:21  | Hebrew מטה = staff  (מַטֶה) and bed (מִטָה)
