And he said unto him, I will go with him, and fear thou not; we shall go safe and return safe unto thee, because the way is secure. 17(16) And he said unto him, Blessing befall thee, brother!

And God which is in heaven preserve you there and restore you to me in safety and his angel accompany you with deliverance, child.
