Your fathers went down to Egypt seventy persons in all, and now the Lord your God has made you as numerous as the stars of heaven.
And He took him outside and said, “Now look toward the heavens, and count the stars, if you are able to count them.” And He said to him, “ So shall your descendants be.”
and the sons of Joseph, who were born to him in Egypt were two; all the persons of the house of Jacob, who came to Egypt, were seventy.
The Lord your God has multiplied you, and behold, you are this day like the stars of heaven in number.
All the persons who came from the loins of Jacob were seventy in number, but Joseph was already in Egypt.

“You made their sons numerous as the stars of heaven, And You brought them into the land Which You had told their fathers to enter and possess.
Then Joseph sent word and invited Jacob his father and all his relatives to come to him, seventy-five persons in all.
These are those who were numbered of the sons of Israel, 601,730.
Those who were numbered of them were 23,000, every male from a month old and upward, for they were not numbered among the sons of Israel since no inheritance was given to them among the sons of Israel.
Therefore there was born even of one man, and him as good as dead at that, as many descendants as the stars of heaven in number, and innumerable as the sand which is by the seashore.
