← Genesis 44   Genesis 46 →

1 And Joseph could not hold·​·himself·​·back before all who were standing by him; and he called, Cause every man to go·​·out from by me! And there stood not a man with him while Joseph made· himself ·known to his brothers.

2 And he gave·​·over his voice in weeping; and the Egyptians heard, and the house of Pharaoh heard.

3 And Joseph said to his brothers, I am Joseph; does my father yet live? And his brothers could not answer him; for they were vexed before him.

4 And Joseph said to his brothers, Approach me, I pray. And they approached. And he said, I am Joseph your brother, whom you sold into Egypt.

5 And now be· not ·grieved, neither be·​·incensed in your eyes, that you sold me hither; for God sent me before you for keeping·​·alive.

6 For this two·​·years the famine is in the midst of the land; and there are still five years wherein there will be no plowing and harvest.

7 And God sent me before you to set for you a residue in the land, and to make· you ·live for a great deliverance.

8 And now it is not you who have sent me hither, but God; and He set me for a father to Pharaoh, and for a lord to all his house, and I rule in all the land of Egypt.

9 Hasten ye and go·​·up to my father, and say to him, Thus has said thy son Joseph, God has set me for lord to all Egypt; come·​·down to me, stand not back;

10 and thou shalt dwell in the land of Goshen, and thou shalt be near to me, thou, and thy sons, and thy sons’ sons, and thy flocks, and thy herds, and all that thou hast;

11 and I will sustain thee there; for there are still five years of famine; lest thou be dispossessed, thou, and thy house, and all that thou hast.

12 And behold, your eyes see, and the eyes of my brother Benjamin, that with my mouth I am speaking to you.

13 And you shall tell my father all my glory in Egypt, and all that you have seen; and hasten ye and bring·​·down my father hither.

14 And he fell upon his brother Benjamin’s necks and wept; and Benjamin wept upon his necks.*

15 And he kissed all his brothers, and wept upon them; and afterwards his brothers spoke with him.

16 And the voice was heard in the house of Pharaoh, saying, The brothers of Joseph have come; and it was·​·good in the eyes of Pharaoh, and in the eyes of his servants.

17 And Pharaoh said to Joseph, Say to thy brothers, This do ye; pack your beasts, and go, go·​·into the land of Canaan;

18 and take your father, and your houses*, and come to me; and I will give you the goodness of the land of Egypt, and you shall eat the fat of the land.

19 And now commanded, this do; take for yourselves from the land of Egypt carts for your infants, and for your women, and take·​·up your father, and come.

20 And let not your eye be sparing upon your vessels; for the goodness of the all the land of Egypt, it is for you.

21 And the sons of Israel did so; and Joseph gave them carts, by the mouth of Pharaoh, and gave them provision for the way.

22 And to all of them he gave to a man changes of raiment; and to Benjamin he gave three hundred pieces of silver, and five changes of raiment.

23 And to his father he sent according·​·to this manner: ten donkeys bearing what was from the goodness of Egypt, and ten she·​·donkeys bearing grain and bread and nourishment for his father for the way.

24 And he sent his brothers, and they went; and he said to them, Contend not in the way.

25 And they went·​·up out·​·of Egypt, and came·​·into the land of Canaan to Jacob their father.

26 And they told him, saying, Joseph is yet alive, and he is ruler in all the land of Egypt. And his heart failed, because he believed them not.

27 And they spoke to him all the words of Joseph, which he spoke to them; and he saw the carts which Joseph had sent to bear him, and the spirit of Jacob their father lived;

28 and Israel said, It is much; Joseph my son is yet alive; I will go and see him before I die.
