47:3
quos ille interrogavit quid habetis operis responderuntpastores ovium sumus servi tui et nos et patres nostri

47:4
ad peregrinandum in terra tua venimus quoniam non est herbagregibus servorum tuorum ingravescente fame in regione Chanaanpetimusque ut esse nos iubeas servos tuos in terra Gessen

47:5
dixit itaque rex ad Ioseph pater tuus et fratres tuivenerunt ad te

47:6
terra Aegypti in conspectu tuo est in optimo loco fachabitare eos et trade eis terram Gessen quod si nosti esse ineis viros industrios constitue illos magistros pecorum meorum

47:7
post haec introduxit Ioseph patrem suum ad regem et statuiteum coram eo qui benedicens illi

47:8
et interrogatus ab eo quot sunt dies annorum vitae tuae

47:9
respondit dies peregrinationis vitae meae centum trigintaannorum sunt parvi et mali et non pervenerunt usque ad diespatrum meorum quibus peregrinati sunt

47:10
et benedicto rege egressus est foras

47:11
Ioseph vero patri et fratribus suis dedit possessionem inAegypto in optimo loco terrae solo Ramesses ut praeceperatPharao

47:12
et alebat eos omnemque domum patris sui praebens cibariasingulis

47:13

cumque defecisset emptoris pretium venit cuncta Aegyptusad Ioseph dicens da nobis panes quare morimur coram tedeficiente pecunia

47:16

47:21

47:29
cumque adpropinquare cerneret mortis diem vocavit filiumsuum Ioseph et dixit ad eum si inveni gratiam in conspectu tuopone manum sub femore meo et facies mihi misericordiam etveritatem ut non sepelias me in Aegypto

47:30
sed dormiam cum patribus meis et auferas me de hac terracondasque in sepulchro maiorum cui respondit Ioseph ego faciamquod iussisti

047:001
Then Joseph came and told Pharaoh, and said, My father and my brethren, and their flocks, and their herds, and all that they have, are come out of the land of Canaan; and, behold, they are in the land of Goshen.

047:002
And he took some of his brethren, even five men, and presented them unto Pharaoh.

047:003
And Pharaoh said unto his brethren, What is your occupation? And they said unto Pharaoh, Thy servants are shepherds, both we, and also our fathers.

047:004
They said moreover unto Pharaoh, For to sojourn in the land are we come; for thy servants have no pasture for their flocks; for the famine is sore in the land of Canaan: now therefore, we pray thee, let thy servants dwell in the land of Goshen.

047:005
And Pharaoh spake unto Joseph, saying, Thy father and thy brethren are come unto thee:

047:006
The land of Egypt is before thee; in the best of the land make thy father and brethren to dwell; in the land of Goshen let them dwell: and if thou knowest any men of activity among them, then make them rulers over my cattle.

047:007
And Joseph brought in Jacob his father, and set him before Pharaoh: and Jacob blessed Pharaoh.

047:008
And Pharaoh said unto Jacob, How old art thou?

047:009
And Jacob said unto Pharaoh, The days of the years of my pilgrimage are an hundred and thirty years: few and evil have the days of the years of my life been, and have not attained unto the days of the years of the life of my fathers in the days of their pilgrimage.

047:010
And Jacob blessed Pharaoh, and went out from before Pharaoh.

047:011
And Joseph placed his father and his brethren, and gave them a possession in the land of Egypt, in the best of the land, in the land of Rameses, as Pharaoh had commanded.

047:012
And Joseph nourished his father, and his brethren, and all his father's household, with bread, according to their families.

047:013
And there was no bread in all the land; for the famine was very sore, so that the land of Egypt and all the land of Canaan fainted by reason of the famine.

047:014
And Joseph gathered up all the money that was found in the land of Egypt, and in the land of Canaan, for the corn which they bought: and Joseph brought the money into Pharaoh's house.

047:015
And when money failed in the land of Egypt, and in the land of Canaan, all the Egyptians came unto Joseph, and said, Give us bread: for why should we die in thy presence? for the money faileth.

047:016
And Joseph said, Give your cattle; and I will give you for your cattle, if money fail.

047:017
And they brought their cattle unto Joseph: and Joseph gave them bread in exchange for horses, and for the flocks, and for the cattle of the herds, and for the asses: and he fed them with bread for all their cattle for that year.

047:018
When that year was ended, they came unto him the second year, and said unto him, We will not hide it from my lord, how that our money is spent; my lord also hath our herds of cattle; there is not ought left in the sight of my lord, but our bodies, and our lands:

047:019
Wherefore shall we die before thine eyes, both we and our land? buy us and our land for bread, and we and our land will be servants unto Pharaoh: and give us seed, that we may live, and not die, that the land be not desolate.

047:020
And Joseph bought all the land of Egypt for Pharaoh; for the Egyptians sold every man his field, because the famine prevailed over them: so the land became Pharaoh's.

047:021
And as for the people, he removed them to cities from one end of the borders of Egypt even to the other end thereof.

047:022
Only the land of the priests bought he not; for the priests had a portion assigned them of Pharaoh, and did eat their portion which Pharaoh gave them: wherefore they sold not their lands.

047:023
Then Joseph said unto the people, Behold, I have bought you this day and your land for Pharaoh: lo, here is seed for you, and ye shall sow the land.

047:024
And it shall come to pass in the increase, that ye shall give the fifth part unto Pharaoh, and four parts shall be your own, for seed of the field, and for your food, and for them of your households, and for food for your little ones.

047:025
And they said, Thou hast saved our lives: let us find grace in the sight of my lord, and we will be Pharaoh's servants.

047:026
And Joseph made it a law over the land of Egypt unto this day, that Pharaoh should have the fifth part, except the land of the priests only, which became not Pharaoh's.

047:027
And Israel dwelt in the land of Egypt, in the country of Goshen; and they had possessions therein, and grew, and multiplied exceedingly.

047:028
And Jacob lived in the land of Egypt seventeen years: so the whole age of Jacob was an hundred forty and seven years.

047:029
And the time drew nigh that Israel must die: and he called his son Joseph, and said unto him, If now I have found grace in thy sight, put, I pray thee, thy hand under my thigh, and deal kindly and truly with me; bury me not, I pray thee, in Egypt:

047:030
But I will lie with my fathers, and thou shalt carry me out of Egypt, and bury me in their buryingplace. And he said, I will do as thou hast said.

047:031
And he said, Swear unto me. And he sware unto him. And Israel bowed himself upon the bed's head.
