Joseph's Brothers Go To Egypt For Food

4 but, Benjamin, Joseph's own brother, Jacob sent not with his brethren, - for he said, Lest there befall him any mischief. 5 Thus came in the sons of Israel, to buy corn in the midst of them that came - for the famine was in the land of Canaan. 6 Now, Joseph - he, it was, that was in power over the land, he, it was that was selling corn to all the people of the land, - so Joseph's brethren came in, and bowed themselves down to him, with their faces to the earth.
