So then Joseph went in, and told Pharaoh, and said - My father and my brethren, and their flocks and their herds and all that they have, are come in from the land of Canaan, - and, here they are, in the land of Goshen. Moreover out of the whole number of his brethren, he took with him five men, - and set them before Pharaoh. And Pharaoh said unto the brethren of Joseph - What is your occupation? And they said unto Pharaoh - Feeders of flocks, are thy servants, both we and our fathers. read more.
And they said unto Pharaoh - To sojourn in the land, are we come in, for there is no pasture for the flocks which pertain to thy servants, for, severe, is the famine in the land of Canaan. Now, therefore, let thy servants dwell we pray thee in the land of Goshen. Then spake Pharaoh unto Joseph saying, - Thy father and thy brethren, are come in unto thee. The land of Egypt, is, before thee, in the best of the land, cause thou thy father and thy brethren to dwell, - let them dwell in the land of Goshen, And if thou knowest that there are among them men of ability, then shalt thou set them as chieftains of cattle over mine. So Joseph brought in Jacob his father, and caused him to stand before Pharaoh, - and Jacob blessed Pharaoh. And Pharaoh said unto Jacob: About how many, have been the days of the years of thy life? And Jacob said unto Pharaoh, The days of the years of my sojournings, have been a hundred and thirty years, - Few and evil, have been the days of the years of my life, neither have they attained unto the days of the years of the lives of my fathers, in the days of their sojournings. And Jacob blessed Pharaoh, - and came forth from the presence of Pharaoh. So then Joseph fixed the dwelling of 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. And Joseph nourished his father and his brethren, and all his father's house, - with bread, according to the need of their little ones.


Then sent Pharaoh and summoned Joseph, and they hastened him out of the dungeon, - so he shaved himself and changed his garments, and came in unto Pharaoh. And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, A dream, have I dreamed, but none can interpreted it, - but, I, have heard say concerning thee, that on hearing a dream, thou canst interpret it. And Joseph answered Pharaoh saying, Not to me, doth it pertain! May, God grant in answer, the prosperity of Pharaoh! read more.
Then spake Pharaoh unto Joseph, - In my dream, there was I, standing on the lip of the river; When lo! out of the river, were coming up seven heifers, fat in flesh and comely in form, - and they fed among the rushes. And lo! seven other heifers, coming up after them, poor and very uncomely in form and lean in flesh, - I had never seen such in all the land of Egypt, for uncomeliness. Then did the lean and uncomely heifers eat up the first seven fat heifers; and they passed into their stomach yet could it not be known that they had passed into them, their appearance, being uncomely, as at the beginning. So I awoke. Then looked I in my dream, - And lo! seven ears, coming up on one stalk, full and good; And lo! seven ears, withered lean shrivelled by an east wind growing up after them. Then did the lean ears swallow up, the seven good ears. So I told these things unto the sacred scribes, but there was none that could explain them to me. Then said Joseph unto Pharaoh, The dream of Pharaoh, is, one. What God is about to do hath he announced to Pharaoh. The seven good heifers, are, seven years, and, the seven good ears are, seven years, - the dream, is, one. And the seven lean and uncomely heifers that were coming up after them, are seven years, and the seven lean ears, shrivelled by an east wind, will turn out to be - seven years of famine. The very word that I spake unto Pharaoh, what, God, is about to do, hath he showed unto Pharaoh. Lo! seven years, coming in, - of great plenty, in all the land of Egypt. Then shall arise seven years of famine, after them, so shall be forgotten all the plenty in the land of Egypt, - and the famine shall consume the land; neither shall the plenty in the land be discernible, because of that famine coming after, - for it shall be livery severe. And for that there was a repeating of the dream unto Pharaoh, twice, it is because the thing, is established, from God, and God is hastening to do it. Now, therefore, let Pharaoh look out a man discreet and wise, - and set him over the land of Egypt. Let Pharaoh do this, that he may appoint overseers over the land, - so shall he take up a fifth of the land of Egypt, during the seven years of plenty. And let them gather up all the food of these seven good years that are coming in, - and let them heap up corn under the hand of Pharaoh as food in cities so shall they keep it. So shall the food become a store for the land, for the seven years of famine which shall come about in the land of Egypt, - and the land shall not be cut off in the famine. And the thing was good in the eyes of Pharaoh, - and in the eyes of all his servants; and Pharaoh said unto his servants, - Can we find such a one, a man in whom is the Spirit of God? So Pharaoh said unto Joseph, After God hath made known unto thee all this, there is no one discreet and wise like thee. Thou, shalt be over my house, and on thy mouth, shall all my people kiss, - only as to the throne, will I be greater than thou. And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, - See, I have set thee over all the land of Egypt. So Pharaoh took his ring from off his hands and put it upon Joseph's hand, - and clothed him in garments of fine linen, and put the chain of gold upon his neck; and made him ride in the second chariot which belonged to him, and they cried out before him. Bow the knee! thus setting him over all the land of Egypt. And Pharaoh said unto Joseph. I, am Pharaoh, Without thee, therefore shah no man raise his hand or his foot in all the land of Egypt. And Pharaoh called Joseph's name Zaphenath-paneah, and gave him Asenath daughter of Poti-phera priest of On, to wife, - and Joseph went forth over the land of Egypt. Now, Joseph, was thirty years old, when he took his station, before Pharaoh king of Egypt. So Joseph went forth from before Pharaoh, and passed along through all the land of Egypt.


So they sent in charge unto Joseph saying, - Thy father, gave command before he died saying: Thus, shall ye say to Joseph - Ah now! do forgive we pray thee the transgression of thy brethren and their sin in that with evil, they requited thee. Now, therefore grant forgiveness we pray thee, for the transgression of the servants of the God of thy father! And Joseph wept when they spake unto him. Then went his brethren also, and fell down before him, - and said, Behold us! thine for servants. read more.
And Joseph said unto them - Do not fear, - although in place of God, I am. Ye, indeed, planned against me, evil, - God, planned it, for good, for the sake of doing, as at this day, to save alive much people. Now, therefore do not fear! I will nourish you and your little ones. Thus he consoled them, and spake unto their heart.


So Pharaoh took his ring from off his hands and put it upon Joseph's hand, - and clothed him in garments of fine linen, and put the chain of gold upon his neck; and made him ride in the second chariot which belonged to him, and they cried out before him. Bow the knee! thus setting him over all the land of Egypt. And Pharaoh said unto Joseph. I, am Pharaoh, Without thee, therefore shah no man raise his hand or his foot in all the land of Egypt.


And Joseph answered Pharaoh saying, Not to me, doth it pertain! May, God grant in answer, the prosperity of Pharaoh!

So then God sent me before you, to plant for you a remainder in the earth, - and to save you alive, by a great deliverance, Now, therefore it was not ye, who sent me hither, but, God, himself, - who also appointed me to be a father to Pharaoh, and a lord to all his house, and a ruler over all the land of Egypt. Haste ye and go up unto my father, then shall ye say unto him - Thus saith thy son Joseph, God hath appointed me lord to all Egypt, - come down unto me do not delay;


And it came to pass after these things, that his lord's wife lifted up her eyes unto Joseph, - and she said - Come! lie with me. And he refused and said unto his lord's wife, Lo! my lord, taketh no note with me as to what is in the house, - but, all that pertaineth to him, hath he delivered into my hand: There is no one greater in this house than I, neither hath he withheld from me anything, save only thyself in that thou, art his wife, - how, then could I do this great wickedness, and sin against God? read more.
And it came to pass, that although she Spake unto Joseph day after day, yet hearkened he not unto her to lie beside her to be with her. And it came to pass, when, on a certain day, he went into the house to attend to his business, - and there was no man of the household, there in the house, that she caught him by his garment, saying - Come! lie with me. Then left he his garment in her hand, and fled and gut forth outside, And it came to pass when she saw that he had left his garment in her hand, - and fled forth outside,





And it came to pass that Yahweh, was with Joseph, so that he became a prosperous man, - and was in the house of his lord the Egyptian. And his lord saw, that, Yahweh, was with him - and that whatsoever, he was doing, Yahweh, was causing to prosper in his hand. So Joseph found favour in his eyes and waited upon him, - and he made him overseer over his house, and all that he had, gave he into his hand. read more.
And it came to pass from the time that he made him overseer in his house and over all that he had, that Yahweh blessed the house of the Egyptian, for Joseph's sake, - yea it came to pass, that the blessing of Yahweh, was with all that he had, in the house and in the field;

And it came to pass that, Yahweh, was with Joseph, and extended unto him lovingkindness, - and gave him his favour in the eyes of the chief of the prison.

After nothing, was the chief of the prison looking, of whatever was in his hand, - in that Yahweh, was with him, and whatsoever, he was doing, Yahweh, was causing to prosper.


And Joseph dreamed a dream, and told it to his brethren, and they went on yet more to hate him. And he said unto them, Hear ye I pray you, this dream which I have dreamed: Lo! then, we, were binding sheaves in the midst of the field, when lo my sheaf rose up, yea and took its stand, - and lo! round about came your sheaves, and bowed themselves down to my sheaf. read more.
And his brethren said to him, Shalt thou, reign, over us, shalt thou, have dominion over us? So they went on yet more to hate him, because of his dreams and because of his words. Then dreamed he, yet another, dream, and related it to his brethren, and said: - Lo! I have dreamed a dream, yet again, Lo! then, the sun and the moon, and eleven stars, were bowing themselves down to me.



of Symeon, of Judas, of Joseph, - of Jonam, of Eliakim:

of Matthat, of Levi, of Melchi, - of Jannai, of Joseph:

of Maath, of Mattathias, of Semein, - of Josech, of Joda:


Moreover, Joseph her husband, being, righteous, and yet unwilling to expose her, - intended, privately, to divorce her.


And, he, arising, took unto him the child and its mother, by night, and retired into Egypt;


And Joseph, awaking, from his sleep, did as the messenger of the Lord directed him, - and took unto him his wife;


But, bread, was there none in all the land, - for the famine was, very severe, - so that the land of Egypt and the land of Canaan fainted by reason of the famine, So Joseph gathered up all the silver that was found in the land of Egypt. and in the land of Canaan, for the corn which, they, were buying, - and Joseph brought the silver into the house of Pharaoh. And the silver was spent out of the land of Egypt and out of the land of Canaan, so all the Egyptians came in unto Joseph, saying - Do give us bread, for why should we die before thee, although, silver, hath failed? read more.
Then said Joseph: Give your cattle, and I will give you for your cattle, - if silver hath failed. So they brought in their cattle unto Joseph, and Joseph gave them bread in exchange for the horses and for the cattle of the flock and for the cattle of the herd, and for the asses, - and he provided them with bread for all their cattle, throughout that year. When that year was ended, then came they unto him in the second year and said to him - We will not hide from my lord, how that the silver and the herds of beasts for my lord are come to an end, - there is nothing left before my lord, save only our bodies and our ground: Wherefore should we die before thine eyes both we, and our ground? Buy thou us and our ground, for bread, - and we and our ground will become servants to Pharaoh, and give seed, that we may live, and not die, and the ground, not lie waste. So Joseph bought all the ground of the Egyptians for Pharaoh, for the Egyptians sold every man his field, because the famine had laid fast hold upon them, - so the land became Pharaohs. And as for the people, he brought them into bondage as servants, - from one end of the boundary of Egypt unto the other end thereof. Only, the ground of the priests, bought he not, - for the priests had a statutory-portion, from Pharaoh and they had been eating their statutory-portion, which Pharaoh had given them, for which cause, they had not sold their ground. And Joseph said unto the people, Lo! I have bought you this day, and your ground for Pharaoh, - see, here is seed for you, so shall ye sow the ground; and it shall come to pass that, of the yield, ye shall give a fifth to Pharaoh, - but the four parts, shall be your own - for seed for the field, and for your food and for them who are in your households and for food for your little ones. And they said - Thou hast saved our lives! let us find favour in the eyes of my lord, so will we become Pharaohs servants. And Joseph appointed it for a statute - until this day, regarding the ground of Egypt, that Pharaoh, should take a fifth, - only, the ground of the priests, was, theirs alone, it had not become Pharaohs.


And Reuben returned unto the pit, and lo Joseph was not in the pit, so he rent his clothes; and returned unto his brethren, and said, - The, lad, is not! And, I, oh where can I, go? And they took Joseph's tunic, - and slaughtered a buck of the goats, and dipped the tunic in the blood; read more.
and sent the long tunic and brought it in unto their father, and said This, have we found! Examine, we pray thee, whether it is the tunic of thy son, or not! So he examined it, and said - The tunic of my son! A cruel beast hath devoured him, - torn in pieces - torn in pieces, is Joseph! And Jacob rent his garments, and put sackcloth upon his loins, - and mourned over his son many days. And all his sons and all his daughters rose up to console him but he refused to be consoled, and said - Surely I will go down unto my son mourning to hades! And his father wept for him.


Now, Joseph, was thirty years old, when he took his station, before Pharaoh king of Egypt. So Joseph went forth from before Pharaoh, and passed along through all the land of Egypt. And the land produced, in the seven years of plenty, by handfuls, And he gathered up all the food of the seven years in which there was plenty in the land of Egypt, and laid up food in cities - the food of the fields of the city. which were round about it, laid he up within it. read more.

And Joseph called the name of the firstborn Manasseh, - For God hath made me forget all my trouble, and all the house of my father. And, the name of the second, called he Ephraim, For God hath made me fruitful in the land of my humiliation. Then came to an end the seven years of the plenty, - which was in the land of Egypt; and the seven years of famine began to come in, according as Joseph had said, - and it came to pass that there was a famine in all the lands, but in all the land of Egypt, there was bread. Yet was famine felt in all the land of Egypt, and the people made outcry; unto Pharaoh for bread, - and Pharaoh said to all Egypt, - Go ye unto Joseph, that which he saith to you, shall ye do. Now, the famine, was over all the face of the land, - so Joseph opened all places wherein it was and sold corn to the Egyptians, and the famine laid fast hold of the land of Egypt. All the earth also, came in to Egypt to buy corn, unto Joseph, - because the famine had laid fast hold on an the earth.


Only, the ground of the priests, bought he not, - for the priests had a statutory-portion, from Pharaoh and they had been eating their statutory-portion, which Pharaoh had given them, for which cause, they had not sold their ground.

And Joseph appointed it for a statute - until this day, regarding the ground of Egypt, that Pharaoh, should take a fifth, - only, the ground of the priests, was, theirs alone, it had not become Pharaohs.


And of Joseph, he said, Blessed of Yahweh, be his land, - With the precious things of the heavens with the dew, And with the abyss, couching beneath; And with the precious fruits of the sun, - And with the precious yield of the moons; And with the chief of the ancient mountains, - And with the precious things of the age-abiding hills; read more.
And with the precious things of the earth and its fulness, And with the goodwill of One who dwelt in a thorn-bush. - Let it come on the head of Joseph, And on the crown of the head of him who was consecrated among his brethren.

And the horns of a buffalo, be his horns, With them, let him thrust, peoples, All at once, to the ends of the earth, - Yea, with these, the myriads of Ephraim, And, with those, the thousands of Manasseh.


Come and let us sell him to the Ishmaelites; but let not, out own hand, be upon him, for our own brother, our own flesh, is he And his brethren hearkened. And there passed by certain Midianites travelling merchants, so they drew forth and uplifted Joseph out of the pit, and sold Joseph to the Ishmaelites, for twenty pieces of silver, - and they brought Joseph into Egypt.


Now to Joseph, were born two sons, ere yet came in the year of famine, - whom Asenath daughter of Poti-phera priest of On, bare to him.

And, the name of the second, called he Ephraim, For God hath made me fruitful in the land of my humiliation.


Now, therefore, let Pharaoh look out a man discreet and wise, - and set him over the land of Egypt. Let Pharaoh do this, that he may appoint overseers over the land, - so shall he take up a fifth of the land of Egypt, during the seven years of plenty. And let them gather up all the food of these seven good years that are coming in, - and let them heap up corn under the hand of Pharaoh as food in cities so shall they keep it. read more.
So shall the food become a store for the land, for the seven years of famine which shall come about in the land of Egypt, - and the land shall not be cut off in the famine. And the thing was good in the eyes of Pharaoh, - and in the eyes of all his servants; and Pharaoh said unto his servants, - Can we find such a one, a man in whom is the Spirit of God? So Pharaoh said unto Joseph, After God hath made known unto thee all this, there is no one discreet and wise like thee. Thou, shalt be over my house, and on thy mouth, shall all my people kiss, - only as to the throne, will I be greater than thou. And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, - See, I have set thee over all the land of Egypt. So Pharaoh took his ring from off his hands and put it upon Joseph's hand, - and clothed him in garments of fine linen, and put the chain of gold upon his neck; and made him ride in the second chariot which belonged to him, and they cried out before him. Bow the knee! thus setting him over all the land of Egypt. And Pharaoh said unto Joseph. I, am Pharaoh, Without thee, therefore shah no man raise his hand or his foot in all the land of Egypt. And Pharaoh called Joseph's name Zaphenath-paneah, and gave him Asenath daughter of Poti-phera priest of On, to wife, - and Joseph went forth over the land of Egypt. Now, Joseph, was thirty years old, when he took his station, before Pharaoh king of Egypt. So Joseph went forth from before Pharaoh, and passed along through all the land of Egypt. And the land produced, in the seven years of plenty, by handfuls, And he gathered up all the food of the seven years in which there was plenty in the land of Egypt, and laid up food in cities - the food of the fields of the city. which were round about it, laid he up within it.

And Joseph abode in Egypt, he, and his fathers house, - and Joseph lived a hundred and ten years. And Joseph saw Ephraim's, sons of three generations - moreover the sons of Machir, son of Manasseh, were born upon Joseph's knees. Then said Joseph unto his brethren, I, am about to die, - but God will surely concern, himself for you, so will he take you up out of this land, into the land which he sware to Abraham to Isaac and to Jacob. read more.
Then Joseph made the sons of Israel swear saying, - God will, surely concern, himself for you, So shall ye carry up my bones, from hence. So Joseph died, being a hundred and ten years old, - and they embalmed him, and put him in a coffin in Egypt.

Now, when they had retired, lo! a messenger of the Lord, appeareth by dream unto Joseph, saying, Arise, take unto thee the child and its mother, and flee into Egypt, and be there, until I tell thee, - for Herod is about to seek the child, to destroy it.

Moreover, Joseph her husband, being, righteous, and yet unwilling to expose her, - intended, privately, to divorce her. But, when, these things, he had pondered, lo! a messenger of the Lord, by dream, appeared to him, saying, - Joseph, son of David! do not fear to take unto thee Mary thy wife, for, that which, in her, hath been begotten, is of the , Holy, Spirit.

Then shall arise seven years of famine, after them, so shall be forgotten all the plenty in the land of Egypt, - and the famine shall consume the land; neither shall the plenty in the land be discernible, because of that famine coming after, - for it shall be livery severe.

And it came to pass, when his lord heard the words of his wife which she spake unto him saying, According to these words, hath thy servant done to me, Then was kindled his anger. So Joseph's lord took him and delivered him up to the prison,: the place where, the prisoners of the king, were imprisoned, - so he was there, in the prison.

Then spake the chief of the butlers with Pharaoh saying, My faults, would mention this day. Pharaoh, was wroth with his servants, - and put them in the ward of the house of the chief of the royal executioners, me, and the chief of the bakers. Then must we needs dream, a dream in one night, I and he, - each man, according to the interpretation of his dream, did we dream. read more.
And, there with us, was a young man, a Hebrew servant to the chief of the royal executioners, and we related to him, and he interpreted to us our dreams, - to each man - according to his dream, did he interpret, And it came to pass as he interpreted to us, so, it happened, - me, he restored to mine office but him, he hanged. Then sent Pharaoh and summoned Joseph, and they hastened him out of the dungeon, - so he shaved himself and changed his garments, and came in unto Pharaoh. And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, A dream, have I dreamed, but none can interpreted it, - but, I, have heard say concerning thee, that on hearing a dream, thou canst interpret it. And Joseph answered Pharaoh saying, Not to me, doth it pertain! May, God grant in answer, the prosperity of Pharaoh! Then spake Pharaoh unto Joseph, - In my dream, there was I, standing on the lip of the river; When lo! out of the river, were coming up seven heifers, fat in flesh and comely in form, - and they fed among the rushes. And lo! seven other heifers, coming up after them, poor and very uncomely in form and lean in flesh, - I had never seen such in all the land of Egypt, for uncomeliness. Then did the lean and uncomely heifers eat up the first seven fat heifers; and they passed into their stomach yet could it not be known that they had passed into them, their appearance, being uncomely, as at the beginning. So I awoke. Then looked I in my dream, - And lo! seven ears, coming up on one stalk, full and good; And lo! seven ears, withered lean shrivelled by an east wind growing up after them. Then did the lean ears swallow up, the seven good ears. So I told these things unto the sacred scribes, but there was none that could explain them to me. Then said Joseph unto Pharaoh, The dream of Pharaoh, is, one. What God is about to do hath he announced to Pharaoh. The seven good heifers, are, seven years, and, the seven good ears are, seven years, - the dream, is, one. And the seven lean and uncomely heifers that were coming up after them, are seven years, and the seven lean ears, shrivelled by an east wind, will turn out to be - seven years of famine. The very word that I spake unto Pharaoh, what, God, is about to do, hath he showed unto Pharaoh. Lo! seven years, coming in, - of great plenty, in all the land of Egypt. Then shall arise seven years of famine, after them, so shall be forgotten all the plenty in the land of Egypt, - and the famine shall consume the land; neither shall the plenty in the land be discernible, because of that famine coming after, - for it shall be livery severe. And for that there was a repeating of the dream unto Pharaoh, twice, it is because the thing, is established, from God, and God is hastening to do it. Now, therefore, let Pharaoh look out a man discreet and wise, - and set him over the land of Egypt. Let Pharaoh do this, that he may appoint overseers over the land, - so shall he take up a fifth of the land of Egypt, during the seven years of plenty. And let them gather up all the food of these seven good years that are coming in, - and let them heap up corn under the hand of Pharaoh as food in cities so shall they keep it. So shall the food become a store for the land, for the seven years of famine which shall come about in the land of Egypt, - and the land shall not be cut off in the famine. And the thing was good in the eyes of Pharaoh, - and in the eyes of all his servants; and Pharaoh said unto his servants, - Can we find such a one, a man in whom is the Spirit of God? So Pharaoh said unto Joseph, After God hath made known unto thee all this, there is no one discreet and wise like thee. Thou, shalt be over my house, and on thy mouth, shall all my people kiss, - only as to the throne, will I be greater than thou. And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, - See, I have set thee over all the land of Egypt. So Pharaoh took his ring from off his hands and put it upon Joseph's hand, - and clothed him in garments of fine linen, and put the chain of gold upon his neck; and made him ride in the second chariot which belonged to him, and they cried out before him. Bow the knee! thus setting him over all the land of Egypt. And Pharaoh said unto Joseph. I, am Pharaoh, Without thee, therefore shah no man raise his hand or his foot in all the land of Egypt. And Pharaoh called Joseph's name Zaphenath-paneah, and gave him Asenath daughter of Poti-phera priest of On, to wife, - and Joseph went forth over the land of Egypt. Now, Joseph, was thirty years old, when he took his station, before Pharaoh king of Egypt. So Joseph went forth from before Pharaoh, and passed along through all the land of Egypt. And the land produced, in the seven years of plenty, by handfuls, And he gathered up all the food of the seven years in which there was plenty in the land of Egypt, and laid up food in cities - the food of the fields of the city. which were round about it, laid he up within it. Thus did Joseph heap up corn like the sand of the sea making it exceeding abundant, - until one hath left off reckoning, because it cannot be reckoned. Now to Joseph, were born two sons, ere yet came in the year of famine, - whom Asenath daughter of Poti-phera priest of On, bare to him. And Joseph called the name of the firstborn Manasseh, - For God hath made me forget all my trouble, and all the house of my father. And, the name of the second, called he Ephraim, For God hath made me fruitful in the land of my humiliation. Then came to an end the seven years of the plenty, - which was in the land of Egypt; and the seven years of famine began to come in, according as Joseph had said, - and it came to pass that there was a famine in all the lands, but in all the land of Egypt, there was bread. Yet was famine felt in all the land of Egypt, and the people made outcry; unto Pharaoh for bread, - and Pharaoh said to all Egypt, - Go ye unto Joseph, that which he saith to you, shall ye do. Now, the famine, was over all the face of the land, - so Joseph opened all places wherein it was and sold corn to the Egyptians, and the famine laid fast hold of the land of Egypt. All the earth also, came in to Egypt to buy corn, unto Joseph, - because the famine had laid fast hold on an the earth.

And rescued him out of all his tribulations, and gave him favour and wisdom before Pharaoh king of Egypt; and he appointed him governor over Egypt and all his house.


Now, the Midianites, sold him into Egypt, - to Potiphar courtier of Pharaoh, chief of the royal executioners.

So Judah said unto his brethren, - What profit that we slay our brother, and conceal his blood? Come and let us sell him to the Ishmaelites; but let not, out own hand, be upon him, for our own brother, our own flesh, is he And his brethren hearkened. And there passed by certain Midianites travelling merchants, so they drew forth and uplifted Joseph out of the pit, and sold Joseph to the Ishmaelites, for twenty pieces of silver, - and they brought Joseph into Egypt.


And the silver was spent out of the land of Egypt and out of the land of Canaan, so all the Egyptians came in unto Joseph, saying - Do give us bread, for why should we die before thee, although, silver, hath failed? Then said Joseph: Give your cattle, and I will give you for your cattle, - if silver hath failed. So they brought in their cattle unto Joseph, and Joseph gave them bread in exchange for the horses and for the cattle of the flock and for the cattle of the herd, and for the asses, - and he provided them with bread for all their cattle, throughout that year. read more.
When that year was ended, then came they unto him in the second year and said to him - We will not hide from my lord, how that the silver and the herds of beasts for my lord are come to an end, - there is nothing left before my lord, save only our bodies and our ground: Wherefore should we die before thine eyes both we, and our ground? Buy thou us and our ground, for bread, - and we and our ground will become servants to Pharaoh, and give seed, that we may live, and not die, and the ground, not lie waste. So Joseph bought all the ground of the Egyptians for Pharaoh, for the Egyptians sold every man his field, because the famine had laid fast hold upon them, - so the land became Pharaohs. And as for the people, he brought them into bondage as servants, - from one end of the boundary of Egypt unto the other end thereof. Only, the ground of the priests, bought he not, - for the priests had a statutory-portion, from Pharaoh and they had been eating their statutory-portion, which Pharaoh had given them, for which cause, they had not sold their ground. And Joseph said unto the people, Lo! I have bought you this day, and your ground for Pharaoh, - see, here is seed for you, so shall ye sow the ground; and it shall come to pass that, of the yield, ye shall give a fifth to Pharaoh, - but the four parts, shall be your own - for seed for the field, and for your food and for them who are in your households and for food for your little ones. And they said - Thou hast saved our lives! let us find favour in the eyes of my lord, so will we become Pharaohs servants. And Joseph appointed it for a statute - until this day, regarding the ground of Egypt, that Pharaoh, should take a fifth, - only, the ground of the priests, was, theirs alone, it had not become Pharaohs.


These, are the generations of Jacob - Joseph, when seventeen years old, was shepherding with his brethren among the flocks, and, he, being a youth, was with the sons of Bilhah and with the sons of Zilpah wives of his father, - so then Joseph brought in the talk about them - something bad, unto their father.


And it came to pass after these things, that his lord's wife lifted up her eyes unto Joseph, - and she said - Come! lie with me.


And Joseph said unto them - Do not fear, - although in place of God, I am. Ye, indeed, planned against me, evil, - God, planned it, for good, for the sake of doing, as at this day, to save alive much people.


Now, therefore do not fear! I will nourish you and your little ones. Thus he consoled them, and spake unto their heart.


Moreover, Joseph her husband, being, righteous, and yet unwilling to expose her, - intended, privately, to divorce her.
