And Joseph came and told Pharaoh, and said, My father and my brothers, and their flocks, and their herds, and all that they have, have come out··of the land of Canaan; and behold they are in the land of Goshen.
And they said to▵ Pharaoh, To sojourn in the land have we come; for there is no pasture for the flock which belongs to thy servants; for the famine is heavy in the land of Canaan; and now, we pray◦, let thy servants dwell in the land of Goshen.
the land of Egypt, it◦ is before thee; in the best of the land make thy father and thy brothers dwell; let them dwell in the land of Goshen; and if thou knowest, and there··be among◦ them, men◦ of force, then set them as princes over the livestock that belong to me.
And Jacob said to▵ Pharaoh, The days of the years of my sojournings are thirty and a hundred years; few and evil have been the days of the years of my life, and they have not attained to the days of the years of the life of my fathers in the days of their sojournings.
And the silver was finished from the land of Egypt, and from the land of Canaan, and all Egypt came to▵ Joseph, saying, Give▵ us bread, for why should we die in··front··of thee for the silver is··gone◦?
And they brought their livestock to▵ Joseph; and Joseph gave them bread in exchange for the horses, and for the livestock of the flock, and for the livestock of the herd, and for the donkeys; and he provided* them with bread in exchange for all their livestock in this◦ year.
And when this◦ year finished, they came to▵ him in the second year, and said to him, We will not conceal◦ from my lord that the silver is finished; and the livestock of the beast is to▵ my lord; nothing is··left before my lord except▵ our body and our ground.
Why should· we ·die before thine eyes, both◦ we◦ and our ground? buy us and our ground with bread, and we shall be, and our ground, servants to Pharaoh; and give seed, that we◦ may live, and not die, and the ground be· not ·desolate.
Only the ground of the priests bought he not; for a stated portion was for the priests from Pharaoh, and they ate their stated portion which Pharaoh had given to them; Therefore they sold not their ground.
And it shall be in the increase and you shall give a fifth to Pharaoh, and four parts* shall be for you, for seed of the field, and for your food, and for those in your houses, and for food for your infants.
And the days of Israel came··near to die; and he called his son Joseph, and said to him, If, I pray◦, I have found grace in thine eyes, set, I pray◦, thy hand under my thigh, and do mercy and truth with··me; bury me not, I pray◦, in Egypt.
