Genesis 47

  1 H3130 Then Joseph H935 came [H8799]   H5046 and told [H8686]   H6547 Pharaoh H559 , and said [H8799]   H1 , My father H251 and my brethren H6629 , and their flocks H1241 , and their herds H935 , and all that they have, are come out [H8804]   H776 of the land H3667 of Canaan H776 ; and, behold, they are in the land H1657 of Goshen.
  2 H3947 And he took [H8804]   H7097 some H251 of his brethren H2568 , even five H582 men H3322 , and presented [H8686]   H6440 them unto H6547 Pharaoh.
  3 H6547 And Pharaoh H559 said [H8799]   H251 unto his brethren H4639 , What is your occupation H559 ? And they said [H8799]   H6547 unto Pharaoh H5650 , Thy servants H7462 are shepherds [H8802]   H6629   H1 , both we, and also our fathers.
  4 H559 They said [H8799]   H6547 moreover unto Pharaoh H1481 , For to sojourn [H8800]   H776 in the land H935 are we come [H8804]   H5650 ; for thy servants H4829 have no pasture H6629 for their flocks H7458 ; for the famine H3515 is sore H776 in the land H3667 of Canaan H5650 : now therefore, we pray thee, let thy servants H3427 dwell [H8799]   H776 in the land H1657 of Goshen.
  5 H6547 And Pharaoh H559 spake [H8799]   H3130 unto Joseph H559 , saying [H8800]   H1 , Thy father H251 and thy brethren H935 are come [H8804]   unto thee:
  6 H776 The land H4714 of Egypt H6440 is before thee H4315 ; in the best H776 of the land H3427 make H1 thy father H251 and brethren H3427 to dwell [H8685]   H776 ; in the land H1657 of Goshen H3427 let them dwell [H8799]   H3045 : and if thou knowest [H8804]   H3426   H582 any men H2428 of activity H7760 among them, then make them [H8804]   H8269 rulers H4735 over my cattle.
  7 H3130 And Joseph H935 brought in [H8686]   H3290 Jacob H1 his father H5975 , and set him [H8686]   H6440 before H6547 Pharaoh H3290 : and Jacob H1288 blessed [H8762]   H6547 Pharaoh.
  8 H6547 And Pharaoh H559 said [H8799]   H3290 unto Jacob H4100 , How H2416 old H3117   H8141   art thou?
  9 H3290 And Jacob H559 said [H8799]   H6547 unto Pharaoh H3117 , The days H8141 of the years H4033 of my pilgrimage H3967 are an hundred H7970 and thirty H8141 years H4592 : few H7451 and evil H3117 have the days H8141 of the years H2416 of my life H5381 been, and have not attained [H8689]   H3117 unto the days H8141 of the years H2416 of the life H1 of my fathers H3117 in the days H4033 of their pilgrimage.
  10 H3290 And Jacob H1288 blessed [H8762]   H6547 Pharaoh H3318 , and went out [H8799]   H6440 from before H6547 Pharaoh.
  11 H3130 And Joseph H3427 placed [H8686]   H1 his father H251 and his brethren H5414 , and gave [H8799]   H272 them a possession H776 in the land H4714 of Egypt H4315 , in the best H776 of the land H776 , in the land H7486 of Rameses H6547 , as Pharaoh H6680 had commanded [H8765]  .
  12 H3130 And Joseph H3557 nourished [H8770]   H1 his father H251 , and his brethren H1 , and all his father's H1004 household H3899 , with bread H6310 , according H2945 to their families.
  13 H3899 And there was no bread H776 in all the land H7458 ; for the famine H3966 was very H3515 sore H776 , so that the land H4714 of Egypt H776 and all the land H3667 of Canaan H3856 fainted [H8799]   H6440 by reason H7458 of the famine.
  14 H3130 And Joseph H3950 gathered up [H8762]   H3701 all the money H4672 that was found [H8737]   H776 in the land H4714 of Egypt H776 , and in the land H3667 of Canaan H7668 , for the corn H7666 which they bought [H8802]   H3130 : and Joseph H935 brought [H8686]   H3701 the money H6547 into Pharaoh's H1004 house.
  15 H3701 And when money H8552 failed [H8799]   H776 in the land H4714 of Egypt H776 , and in the land H3667 of Canaan H4714 , all the Egyptians H935 came [H8799]   H3130 unto Joseph H559 , and said [H8800]   H3051 , Give [H8798]   H3899 us bread H4191 : for why should we die [H8799]   H3701 in thy presence? for the money H656 faileth [H8804]  .
  16 H3130 And Joseph H559 said [H8799]   H3051 , Give [H8798]   H4735 your cattle H5414 ; and I will give [H8799]   H4735 you for your cattle H3701 , if money H656 fail [H8804]  .
  17 H935 And they brought [H8686]   H4735 their cattle H3130 unto Joseph H3130 : and Joseph H5414 gave [H8799]   H3899 them bread H5483 in exchange for horses H6629 , and for the flocks H4735 , and for the cattle H1241 of the herds H2543 , and for the asses H5095 : and he fed [H8762]   H3899 them with bread H4735 for all their cattle H8141 for that year.
  18 H8141 When that year H8552 was ended [H8799]   H935 , they came [H8799]   H8145 unto him the second H8141 year H559 , and said [H8799]   H3582 unto him, We will not hide [H8762]   H113 it from my lord H3701 , how that our money H8552 is spent [H8804]   H113 ; my lord H413 also hath H4735 our herds H929 of cattle H7604 ; there is not ought left [H8738]   H6440 in the sight H113 of my lord H1472 , but our bodies H127 , and our lands:
  19 H4191 Wherefore shall we die [H8799]   H5869 before thine eyes H127 , both we and our land H7069 ? buy [H8798]   H127 us and our land H3899 for bread H127 , and we and our land H5650 will be servants H6547 unto Pharaoh H5414 : and give [H8798]   H2233 us seed H2421 , that we may live [H8799]   H4191 , and not die [H8799]   H127 , that the land H3456 be not desolate [H8799]  .
  20 H3130 And Joseph H7069 bought [H8799]   H127 all the land H4714 of Egypt H6547 for Pharaoh H4714 ; for the Egyptians H4376 sold [H8804]   H376 every man H7704 his field H7458 , because the famine H2388 prevailed [H8804]   H776 over them: so the land H6547 became Pharaoh's.
  21 H5971 And as for the people H5674 , he removed [H8689]   H5892 them to cities H7097 from one end H1366 of the borders H4714 of Egypt H7097 even to the other end thereof.
  22 H127 Only the land H3548 of the priests H7069 bought he [H8804]   H3548 not; for the priests H2706 had a portion H6547 assigned them of Pharaoh H398 , and did eat [H8804]   H2706 their portion H6547 which Pharaoh H5414 gave [H8804]   H4376 them: wherefore they sold [H8804]   H127 not their lands.
  23 H3130 Then Joseph H559 said [H8799]   H5971 unto the people H7069 , Behold, I have bought [H8804]   H853   H3117 you this day H127 and your land H6547 for Pharaoh H1887 : lo H2233 , here is seed H2232 for you, and ye shall sow [H8804]   H127 the land.
  24 H8393 And it shall come to pass in the increase H5414 , that ye shall give [H8804]   H2549 the fifth H6547 part unto Pharaoh H702 , and four H3027 parts H2233 shall be your own, for seed H7704 of the field H400 , and for your food H1004 , and for them of your households H398 , and for food [H8800]   H2945 for your little ones.
  25 H559 And they said [H8799]   H2421 , Thou hast saved our lives [H8689]   H4672 : let us find [H8799]   H2580 grace H5869 in the sight H113 of my lord H6547 , and we will be Pharaoh's H5650 servants.
  26 H3130 And Joseph H7760 made [H8799]   H2706 it a law H127 over the land H4714 of Egypt H3117 unto this day H6547 , that Pharaoh H2569 should have the fifth H7535 part; except H127 the land H3548 of the priests H6547 only, which became not Pharaoh's.
  27 H3478 And Israel H3427 dwelt [H8799]   H776 in the land H4714 of Egypt H776 , in the country H1657 of Goshen H270 ; and they had possessions [H8735]   H6509 therein, and grew [H8799]   H7235 , and multiplied [H8799]   H3966 exceedingly.
  28 H3290 And Jacob H2421 lived [H8799]   H776 in the land H4714 of Egypt H6240 seventeen H7651   H8141 years H2416 : so the whole age H3117   H3290 of Jacob H3967 was an hundred H705 forty H8141   H7651 and seven H8141 years.
  29 H3117 And the time H7126 drew nigh [H8799]   H3478 that Israel H4191 must die [H8800]   H7121 : and he called [H8799]   H1121 his son H3130 Joseph H559 , and said [H8799]   H4672 unto him, If now I have found [H8804]   H2580 grace H5869 in thy sight H7760 , put [H8798]   H3027 , I pray thee, thy hand H3409 under my thigh H6213 , and deal [H8804]   H2617 kindly H571 and truly H6912 with me; bury [H8799]   H4714 me not, I pray thee, in Egypt:
  30 H7901 But I will lie [H8804]   H1 with my fathers H5375 , and thou shalt carry [H8804]   H4714 me out of Egypt H6912 , and bury [H8804]   H6900 me in their buryingplace H559 . And he said [H8799]   H6213 , I will do [H8799]   H1697 as thou hast said.
  31 H559 And he said [H8799]   H7650 , Swear [H8734]   H7650 unto me. And he sware [H8735]   H3478 unto him. And Israel H7812 bowed [H8691]   H4296 himself upon the bed's H7218 head.
