32 ‘And the men are ashepherds, for their occupation has been to feed livestock; and they have brought their flocks, their herds, and all that they have.’
33 “So it shall be, when Pharaoh calls you and says, a‘What is your occupation?’
34 “that you shall say, ‘Your servants’ aoccupation has been with livestock bfrom our youth even till now, both we and also our fathers,’ that you may dwell in the land of Goshen; for every shepherd is can1 abomination to the Egyptians.
1 Then Joseph awent and told Pharaoh, and said, “My father and my brothers, their flocks and their herds and all that they possess, have come from the land of
2 And he took five men from among his brothers and apresented them to Pharaoh.
3 Then Pharaoh said to his brothers, a“What is your occupation?” And they said to Pharaoh, b“Your servants are shepherds, both we and also our fathers.”
4 And they said to Pharaoh, a“We have come to dwell in the land, because your servants have no pasture for their flocks, bfor the famine is severe in the land of . Now therefore, please let your servants cdwell in the land of Goshen.”
5 Then Pharaoh spoke to Joseph, saying, “Your father and your brothers have come to you.
6 a“The land of Egypt is before you. Have your father and brothers dwell in the best of the land; let them dwell bin the land of Goshen. And if you know any competent men among them, then make them chief herdsmen over my livestock.”
7 Then Joseph brought in his father Jacob and set him before Pharaoh; and Jacob ablessed Pharaoh.
8 Pharaoh said to Jacob, “How old are you?”
9 And Jacob said to Pharaoh, a“The days of the years of my 1pilgrimage are bone hundred and thirty years; cfew and evil have been the days of the years of my life, and dthey have not attained to the days of the years of the life of my fathers in the days of their pilgrimage.”
10 So Jacob ablessed Pharaoh, and went out from before Pharaoh.
11 And Joseph situated his father and his brothers, and gave them a possession in the land of Egypt, in the best of the land, in the land of aRameses, bas Pharaoh had commanded.
12 Then Joseph provided ahis father, his brothers, and all his father’s
household with bread, according to
the number in their families.
Joseph Deals with the Famine
13 Now there was no bread in all the land; for the famine was very severe, aso that the land of Egypt and the land of
14 aAnd Joseph gathered up all the money that was found in the land of Egypt and in the land of , for the grain which they bought; and Joseph brought the money into Pharaoh’s house.
15 So when the money failed in the land of Egypt and in the land of , all the Egyptians came to Joseph and said, “Give us bread, for awhy should we die in your presence? For the money has failed.”
16 Then Joseph said, “Give your livestock, and I will give you bread for your livestock, if the money is gone.”
17 So they brought their livestock to Joseph, and Joseph gave them bread in exchange for the horses, the flocks, the cattle of the herds, and for the donkeys. Thus he 1fed them with bread in exchange for all their livestock that year.
18 When that year had ended, they came to him the next year and said to him, “We will not hide from my lord that our money is gone; my lord also has our herds of livestock. There is nothing left in the sight of my lord but our bodies and our lands.
19 “Why should we die before your eyes, both we and our land? Buy us and our land for bread, and we and our land will be servants of Pharaoh; give us seed, that we may alive and not die, that the land may not be desolate.”
20 Then Joseph abought all the land of Egypt for Pharaoh; for every man of the Egyptians sold his field, because the famine was severe upon them. So the land became Pharaoh’s.
21 And as for the people, he 1moved them into the cities, from one end of the borders of Egypt to the other end.
22 aOnly the land of the bpriests he did not buy; for the priests had rations allotted to them by Pharaoh, and they ate their rations which Pharaoh gave them; therefore they did not sell their lands.
23 Then Joseph said to the people, “Indeed I have bought you and your land this day for Pharaoh. Look, here is seed for you, and you shall sow the land.
24 “And it shall come to pass in the harvest that you shall give one-fifth to Pharaoh. Four-fifths shall be your own, as seed for the field and for your

25 So they said, “You have saved aour lives; let us find favor in the sight of my lord, and we will be Pharaoh’s servants.”
26 And Joseph made it a law over the land of Egypt to this day, that Pharaoh should have one-fifth, aexcept for the land of the priests only, which did not become Pharaoh’s.
Joseph’s Vow to Jacob
27 So Israel adwelt in the land of Egypt, in the country of Goshen; and they had possessions there and bgrew and multiplied exceedingly.
28 And Jacob lived in the land of Egypt seventeen years. So the length of Jacob’s life was one hundred and forty-seven years.
29 When the time adrew near that Israel must die, he called his son Joseph and said to him, “Now if I have found favor in your sight, please bput your hand under my thigh, and cdeal kindly and truly with me. dPlease do not bury me in Egypt,
30 “but alet me lie with my fathers; you shall carry me out of Egypt and bbury me in their burial place.” And he said, “I will do as you have said.”
31 Then he said, “Swear to me.” And he swore to him. So aIsrael bowed himself on the head of the bed.
