33 is the number of “all the souls of [Jacob’s] sons and his daughters” “which [Leah] bare unto Jacob in Padanaram,” which was earlier than when they came into Egypt (Genesis 46:15). 66 is the number that came into Egypt minus Jacob and his four sons’ wives, as Genesis 46:26-27 clearly states. 70 includes the four wives. 75 includes Jacob himself, Er, Onan, Ephraim, and Mannaseh (“all [Joseph’s] kindred”). 1
