Now go sow the land. 24 When harvest season arrives, you are to provide a fifth of the harvest to Pharaoh. The remaining four fifths are to be for your use, for seed, and to feed you, your households, and your little ones." 25 "You've saved our lives," they replied. "If it pleases you, your Excellency, we'll be Pharaoh's slaves."
