Note

*That Jacob was 77 years old at this time seems evident in a study of several passages. It is necessary to take into account the age of his Son Joseph at the time he (Jacob) went down into Egypt with his family and figure back to this time. From Gen. 41:46-54; 45: 5-9 we learn that Joseph was 30 are old ‘when he stood before Pharaoh at the beginning of 7 plenteous years. After those 7 years and 2 more years of famine when Joseph was 39, his brothers and their families and their father Jacob came down to be with him in Egypt. Jacob was then 130 years old (47: 9). This meant that Jacob was 91 years old when Joseph was born in Haran. It was then that Jacob wanted to return from Haran to his own people in Canaan but Laban persuaded him to remain 6 more years (30:25-28: 31:38-41). Since the entire stay in Haran was 20 years of which 6 were spent after Joseph’s birth, then we know that Joseph was born in the 14th year of Jacob in Haran. Counting back 14 years from his age of 91 at Joseph’s birth time we find him about 77 when he first came to Haran looking for a wife. He was perhaps 78 years old when his first son was born and 97 years old when he finally returned to Isaac and Esau after the 20 years with Laban
