Lived 147 yrs. His children were all born during the second seven years of servitude to Laban except for Benjamin. He had twelve sons, and one daughter. Jacob's age when his children were born is figured from his age when he entered Egypt. He was 130 when Joseph was 39 (at 30 he took power, 7 years of lean, 2 years of drought).
