18 And spent is that year. And coming are they to him in the second year, and saying to him, "Not suppress will we from my lord that spent is the money, and the cattle and the beasts belong to my lord, then nothing remains before my lord, barring our bodies and our ground. 19 Why shall we die before your eyes and our ground be desolate? Buy us and our ground with bread, and we and our ground will become servants of Pharaoh. And give seed for sowing and we shall live and not die, and the ground will not be desolate. 20 And buying is Joseph all the ground of Egypt for Pharaoh, for the Egyptians sell to Pharaoh each man his field, seeing that a fast hold has the famine over them. And coming is the land to be Pharaoh's. 21 And the people are made to serve him as servants from one end of Egypt's boundary unto its other end. 22 But the ground of the priests alone, this Joseph does not buy, for there is a statutory dole for the priests from Pharaoh, and they eat the statutory dole which Pharaoh gives to them. Therefore they did not sell their ground. 23 And saying is Joseph to all the Egyptians, "Behold! Buy do I you today, with your ground, for Pharaoh. Lo! for you there is seed, and sow shall you the ground. 24 And it comes, of the incomes, you give the fifth handful to Pharaoh, and four handfuls shall become yours, for seed for the field, and for your food, and for all who are in your household, and for food for your tots. 25 And saying are they, "Preserving are you our lives. Finding are we grace in the eyes of my lord, and we become Pharaoh's servants. 26 And Joseph is constituting it for a statute over the ground of Egypt till this day--to Pharaoh a fifth. But the ground of the priests, theirs alone does not become Pharaoh's.

And the forbidden idols of Egypt are swayed by His presence, and the heart of Egypt is melting within it." 2 And I tangle Egypt with Egypt, and they will fight, each man against his brother, and each man against his associate. And city shall rouse against city, kingdom against kingdom." 3 And void is the spirit of Egypt within it, and I will swallow up its counsel. And they inquire of the forbidden idols, and of the ventriloquists, and of the mediums and of the wizards." 4 And I hold the Egyptians in check by the hand of obstinate lords, and a strong king shall rule among them,averring is the Lord, Yahweh of hosts." 5 And absorbed are the waters from the upper sea, and the stream shall be drained and be dry." 6 And the streams evaporate, and are impoverished, and the waterways of lower Egypt drain. The reeds and the weeds are withered." 7 Naked places are on the waterway, at the mouth of the waterway, and all that sown by the waterway is drying, and it is whisked away, and is not." 8 And the fishers complain, and mourn do all flingers of fishhooks into the waterway, and the spreaders of a dragnet on the surface of the waters are enfeebled." 9 And ashamed are the cultivators of yellow flax, and the weavers of pale cotton." 10 And its settlers become crushed. All workers for hire are marshy of soul. 11 Yea! Foolish are the chiefs of Zoan, the wise counselors of Pharaoh give brutish counsel. How will you say to Pharaoh, "I am a son of the wise, a son of former kings"? 12 Whereat, indeed, are your wise? And, pray, will they tell to you, and will they know what Yahweh of hosts counsels over Egypt? 13 Foolish are the chiefs of Zoan! Lured away are the chiefs of Noph! They lead Egypt astray, the corner stone of its tribes." 14 Yahweh blends within it a depraved spirit. They lead Egypt astray in its every deed, as a drunkard strays in his vomit." 15 And not coming to Egypt is work, which head or tail, frond or rush shall do." 16 In that day Egypt shall become as wives, and tremble, and be afraid in view of the wave of the hand of Yahweh of hosts, which He will wave over it." 17 And it comes that the ground of Judah is to Egypt for giddiness. Everyone to whom they shall mention it will be afraid, in view of the counsel of Yahweh of hosts, which He shall counsel against them." 18 In that day, five cities in the land of Egypt shall come to speak the lip of Canaan, and swear to Yahweh of hosts. "A devoted city,will be said of one." 19 In that day there shall be an altar to Yahweh in the midst of the land of Egypt, and a monument beside its boundary to Yahweh." 20 And it comes to be for a sign for the eon, and for a testimony to Yahweh of hosts in the land of Egypt.
