Genesis 47 Text (WEB)
  1. Then Joseph went in and told Pharaoh, and said, "My father and my brothers, with their flocks, their herds, and all that they own, have come out of the land of Canaan; and behold, they are in the land of Goshen."
  2. From among his brothers he took five men, and presented them to Pharaoh.
  3. Pharaoh said to his brothers, "What is your occupation?" They said to Pharaoh, "Your servants are shepherds, both we, and our fathers."
  4. They said to Pharaoh, "We have come to live as foreigners in the land, for there is no pasture for your servants' flocks. For the famine is severe in the land of Canaan. Now therefore, please let your servants dwell in the land of Goshen."
  5. Pharaoh spoke to Joseph, saying, "Your father and your brothers have come to you.
  6. The land of Egypt is before you. Make your father and your brothers dwell in the best of the land. Let them dwell in the land of Goshen. If you know any able men among them, then put them in charge of my livestock."
  7. Joseph brought in Jacob, his father, and set him before Pharaoh, and Jacob blessed Pharaoh.
  8. Pharaoh said to Jacob, "How many are the days of the years of your life?"
  9. Jacob said to Pharaoh, "The days of the years of my pilgrimage are one hundred thirty years. Few and evil have been the days of the years of my life, and they have not attained to the days of the years of the life of my fathers in the days of their pilgrimage."
  10. Jacob blessed Pharaoh, and went out from the presence of Pharaoh.
  11. Joseph placed 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 Rameses, as Pharaoh had commanded.
  12. Joseph nourished his father, his brothers, and all of his father's household, with bread, according to their families.
  13. There was no bread 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.
  14. Joseph gathered up all the money that was found in the land of Egypt, and in the land of Canaan, for the grain which they bought: and Joseph brought the money into Pharaoh's house.
  15. When the money was all spent in the land of Egypt, and in the land of Canaan, all the Egyptians came to Joseph, and said, "Give us bread, for why should we die in your presence? For our money fails."
  16. Joseph said, "Give me your livestock; and I will give you food for your livestock, if your money is gone."
  17. They brought their livestock to Joseph, and Joseph gave them bread in exchange for the horses, and for the flocks, and for the herds, and for the donkeys: and he fed them with bread in exchange for all their livestock for that year.
  18. When that year was ended, they came to him the second year, and said to him, "We will not hide from my lord how our money is all spent, and the herds of livestock are my lord's. 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 to Pharaoh. Give us seed, that we may live, and not die, and that the land won't be desolate."
  20. So Joseph bought all the land of Egypt for Pharaoh, for every man of the Egyptians sold his field, because the famine was severe on them, and the land became Pharaoh's.
  21. As for the people, he moved them to the cities from one end of the border of Egypt even to the other end of it.
  22. Only he didn't buy the land of the priests, for the priests had a portion from Pharaoh, and ate their portion which Pharaoh gave them. That is why they didn't sell their land.
  23. Then Joseph said to the people, "Behold, I have bought you and your land today for Pharaoh. Behold, here is seed for you, and you shall sow the land.
  24. It will happen at the harvests, that you shall give a fifth to Pharaoh, and four parts will be your own, for seed of the field, for your food, for them of your households, and for food for your little ones."
  25. They said, "You have saved our lives! Let us find favor in the sight of my lord, and we will be Pharaoh's servants."
  26. Joseph made it a statute concerning the land of Egypt to this day, that Pharaoh should have the fifth. Only the land of the priests alone didn't become Pharaoh's.
  27. Israel lived in the land of Egypt, in the land of Goshen; and they got themselves possessions therein, and were fruitful, and multiplied exceedingly.
  28. Jacob lived in the land of Egypt seventeen years. So the days of Jacob, the years of his life, were one hundred forty-seven years.
  29. The time drew near that Israel must die, and he called his son Joseph, and said to him, "If now I have found favor in your sight, please put your hand under my thigh, and deal kindly and truly with me. Please don't bury me in Egypt,
  30. but when I sleep with my fathers, you shall carry me out of Egypt, and bury me in their burying place." He said, "I will do as you have said."
  31. He said, "Swear to me," and he swore to him. Israel bowed himself on the bed's head.

  19. למה נמות לעיניך גם־אנחנו גם אדמתנו קנה־אתנו ואת־אדמתנו בלחם ונהיה אנחנו ואדמתנו עבדים לפרעה ותן־זרע ונחיה ולא נמות והאדמה לא תשם׃
  20. ויקן יוסף את־כל־אדמת מצרים לפרעה כי־מכרו מצרים איש שדהו כי־חזק עלהם הרעב ותהי הארץ לפרעה׃
  21. ואת־העם העביר אתו לערים מקצה גבול־מצרים ועד־קצהו׃

  23. ויאמר יוסף אל־העם הן קניתי אתכם היום ואת־אדמתכם לפרעה הא־לכם זרע וזרעתם את־האדמה׃
  24. והיה בתבואת ונתתם חמישית לפרעה וארבע הידת יהיה לכם לזרע השדה ולאכלכם ולאשר בבתיכם ולאכל לטפכם׃
  25. ויאמרו החיתנו נמצא־חן בעיני אדני והיינו עבדים לפרעה׃
  26. וישם אתה יוסף לחק עד־היום הזה על־אדמת מצרים לפרעה לחמש רק אדמת הכהנים לבדם לא היתה לפרעה׃
  27. וישב ישראל בארץ מצרים בארץ גשן ויאחזו בה ויפרו וירבו מאד׃

  30. ושכבתי עם־אבתי ונשאתני ממצרים וקברתני בקברתם ויאמר אנכי אעשה כדברך׃
  31. ויאמר השבעה לי וישבע לו וישתחו ישראל על־ראש המטה׃ ף
Genesis 47 Text (Greek)
  1. ελθων δε ιωσηφ απηγγειλεν τω φαραω λεγων ο πατηρ μου και οι αδελφοι μου και τα κτηνη και οι βοες αυτων και παντα τα αυτων ηλθον εκ γης χανααν και ιδου εισιν εν γη
  2. απο δε των αδελφων αυτου παρελαβεν πεντε ανδρας και εστησεν αυτους εναντιον
  3. και ειπεν φαραω τοις αδελφοις ιωσηφ τι το εργον υμων οι δε ειπαν τω φαραω ποιμενες προβατων οι παιδες σου και ημεις και οι πατερες
  4. ειπαν δε τω φαραω παροικειν εν τη γη ηκαμεν ου γαρ εστιν νομη τοις κτηνεσιν των παιδων σου ενισχυσεν γαρ ο λιμος εν γη χανααν νυν ουν κατοικησομεν οι παιδες σου εν γη
  5. ιδου η γη αιγυπτου εναντιον σου εστιν εν τη βελτιστη γη κατοικισον τον πατερα σου και τους αδελφους
  6. ιδου η γη αιγυπτου εναντιον σου εστιν εν τη βελτιστη γη κατοικισον τον πατερα σου και τους αδελφους
  7. εισηγαγεν δε ιωσηφ ιακωβ τον πατερα αυτου και εστησεν αυτον εναντιον φαραω και ευλογησεν ιακωβ τον
  8. ειπεν δε φαραω τω ιακωβ ποσα ετη ημερων της ζωης
  9. και ειπεν ιακωβ τω φαραω αι ημεραι των ετων της ζωης μου ας παροικω εκατον τριακοντα ετη μικραι και πονηραι γεγονασιν αι ημεραι των ετων της ζωης μου ουκ αφικοντο εις τας ημερας των ετων της ζωης των πατερων μου ας ημερας
  10. και ευλογησας ιακωβ τον φαραω εξηλθεν απ'
  11. και κατωκισεν ιωσηφ τον πατερα και τους αδελφους αυτου και εδωκεν αυτοις κατασχεσιν εν γη αιγυπτου εν τη βελτιστη γη εν γη ραμεσση καθα προσεταξεν
  12. και εσιτομετρει ιωσηφ τω πατρι και τοις αδελφοις αυτου και παντι τω οικω του πατρος αυτου σιτον κατα
  13. σιτος δε ουκ ην εν παση τη γη ενισχυσεν γαρ ο λιμος σφοδρα εξελιπεν δε η γη αιγυπτου και η γη χανααν απο του
  14. συνηγαγεν δε ιωσηφ παν το αργυριον το ευρεθεν εν γη αιγυπτου και εν γη χανααν του σιτου ου ηγοραζον και εσιτομετρει αυτοις και εισηνεγκεν ιωσηφ παν το αργυριον εις τον οικον
  15. και εξελιπεν παν το αργυριον εκ γης αιγυπτου και εκ γης χανααν ηλθον δε παντες οι αιγυπτιοι προς ιωσηφ λεγοντες δος ημιν αρτους και ινα τι αποθνησκομεν εναντιον σου εκλελοιπεν γαρ το αργυριον
  16. ειπεν δε αυτοις ιωσηφ φερετε τα κτηνη υμων και δωσω υμιν αρτους αντι των κτηνων υμων ει εκλελοιπεν το
  17. ηγαγον δε τα κτηνη προς ιωσηφ και εδωκεν αυτοις ιωσηφ αρτους αντι των ιππων και αντι των προβατων και αντι των βοων και αντι των ονων και εξεθρεψεν αυτους εν αρτοις αντι παντων των κτηνων αυτων εν τω ενιαυτω
  18. εξηλθεν δε το ετος εκεινο και ηλθον προς αυτον εν τω ετει τω δευτερω και ειπαν αυτω μηποτε εκτριβωμεν απο του κυριου ημων ει γαρ εκλελοιπεν το αργυριον και τα υπαρχοντα και τα κτηνη προς σε τον κυριον και ουχ υπολειπεται ημιν εναντιον του κυριου ημων αλλ' η το ιδιον σωμα και η γη
  19. ινα ουν μη αποθανωμεν εναντιον σου και η γη ερημωθη κτησαι ημας και την γην ημων αντι αρτων και εσομεθα ημεις και η γη ημων παιδες φαραω δος σπερμα ινα σπειρωμεν και ζωμεν και μη αποθανωμεν και η γη ουκ
  20. και εκτησατο ιωσηφ πασαν την γην των αιγυπτιων τω φαραω απεδοντο γαρ οι αιγυπτιοι την γην αυτων τω φαραω επεκρατησεν γαρ αυτων ο λιμος και εγενετο η γη
  21. και τον λαον κατεδουλωσατο αυτω εις παιδας απ' ακρων οριων αιγυπτου εως των
  22. χωρις της γης των ιερεων μονον ουκ εκτησατο ταυτην ιωσηφ εν δοσει γαρ εδωκεν δομα τοις ιερευσιν φαραω και ησθιον την δοσιν ην εδωκεν αυτοις φαραω δια τουτο ουκ απεδοντο την γην
  23. ειπεν δε ιωσηφ πασι τοις αιγυπτιοις ιδου κεκτημαι υμας και την γην υμων σημερον τω φαραω λαβετε εαυτοις σπερμα και σπειρατε την
  24. και εσται τα γενηματα αυτης δωσετε το πεμπτον μερος τω φαραω τα δε τεσσαρα μερη εσται υμιν αυτοις εις σπερμα τη γη και εις βρωσιν υμιν και πασιν τοις εν τοις οικοις
  25. και ειπαν σεσωκας ημας ευρομεν χαριν εναντιον του κυριου ημων και εσομεθα παιδες
  26. και εθετο αυτοις ιωσηφ εις προσταγμα εως της ημερας ταυτης επι γην αιγυπτου τω φαραω αποπεμπτουν χωρις της γης των ιερεων μονον ουκ ην τω
  27. κατωκησεν δε ισραηλ εν γη αιγυπτω επι της γης γεσεμ και εκληρονομησαν επ' αυτης και ηυξηθησαν και επληθυνθησαν
  28. επεζησεν δε ιακωβ εν γη αιγυπτω δεκα επτα ετη εγενοντο δε αι ημεραι ιακωβ ενιαυτων της ζωης αυτου εκατον τεσσαρακοντα επτα
  29. ηγγισαν δε αι ημεραι ισραηλ του αποθανειν και εκαλεσεν τον υιον αυτου ιωσηφ και ειπεν αυτω ει ευρηκα χαριν εναντιον σου υποθες την χειρα σου υπο τον μηρον μου και ποιησεις επ' εμε ελεημοσυνην και αληθειαν του μη με θαψαι εν
  30. αλλα κοιμηθησομαι μετα των πατερων μου και αρεις με εξ αιγυπτου και θαψεις με εν τω ταφω αυτων ο δε ειπεν εγω ποιησω κατα το ρημα
  31. ειπεν δε ομοσον μοι και ωμοσεν αυτω και προσεκυνησεν ισραηλ επι το ακρον της ραβδου
Genesis 47 Text (Latin)
  1. Ingressus ergo Joseph nuntiavit Pharaoni, dicens : Pater meus et fratres, oves eorum et armenta, et cuncta quæ possident, venerunt de terra Chanaan : et ecce consistunt in terra Gessen.
  2. Extremos quoque fratrum suorum quinque viros constituit coram rege :
  3. quos ille interrogavit : Quid habetis operis ? Responderunt : Pastores ovium sumus servi tui, et nos et patres nostri.
  4. Ad peregrinandum in terra tua venimus : quoniam non est herba gregibus servorum tuorum, ingravescente fame in terra Chanaan : petimusque ut esse nos jubeas servos tuos in terra Gessen.
  5. Dixit itaque rex ad Joseph : Pater tuus et fratres tui venerunt ad te.
  6. Terra Ægypti in conspectu tuo est : in optimo loco fac eos habitare, et trade eis terram Gessen. Quod si nosti in eis esse viros industrios, constitue illos magistros pecorum meorum.
  7. Post hæc introduxit Joseph patrem suum ad regem, et statuit eum coram eo : qui benedicens illi,
  8. et interrogatus ab eo : Quot sunt dies annorum vitæ tuæ ?
  9. respondit : Dies peregrinationis meæ centum triginta annorum sunt, parvi et mali, et non pervenerunt usque ad dies patrum meorum quibus peregrinati sunt.
  10. Et benedicto rege, egressus est foras.
  11. Joseph vero patri et fratribus suis dedit possessionem in Ægypto in optimo terræ loco, Ramesses, ut præceperat Pharao.
  12. Et alebat eos, omnemque domum patris sui, præbens cibaria singulis.
  13. In toto enim orbe panis deerat, et oppresserat fames terram, maxime Ægypti et Chanaan.
  14. E quibus omnem pecuniam congregavit pro venditione frumenti, et intulit eam in ærarium regis.
  15. Cumque defecisset emptoribus pretium, venit cuncta Ægyptus ad Joseph, dicens : Da nobis panes : quare morimur coram te, deficiente pecunia ?
  16. Quibus ille respondit : Adducite pecora vestra, et dabo vobis pro eis cibos, si pretium non habetis.
  17. Quæ cum adduxissent, dedit eis alimenta pro equis, et ovibus, et bobus, et asinis : sustentavitque eos illo anno pro commutatione pecorum.
  18. Venerunt quoque anno secundo, et dixerunt ei : Non celabimus dominum nostrum quod deficiente pecunia, pecora simul defecerunt : nec clam te est, quod absque corporibus et terra nihil habeamus.
  19. Cur ergo moriemur te vidente ? et nos et terra nostra tui erimus : eme nos in servitutem regiam, et præbe semina, ne pereunte cultore redigatur terra in solitudinem.
  20. Emit igitur Joseph omnem terram Ægypti, vendentibus singulis possessiones suas præ magnitudine famis. Subjecitque eam Pharaoni,
  21. et cunctos populos ejus a novissimis terminis Ægypti usque ad extremos fines ejus,
  22. præter terram sacerdotum, quæ a rege tradita fuerat eis : quibus et statuta cibaria ex horreis publicis præbebantur, et idcirco non sunt compulsi vendere possessiones suas.
  23. Dixit ergo Joseph ad populos : En ut cernitis, et vos et terram vestram Pharao possidet : accipite semina, et serite agros,
  24. ut fruges habere possitis. Quintam partem regi dabitis : quatuor reliquas permitto vobis in sementem, et in cibum familiis et liberis vestris.
  25. Qui responderunt : Salus nostra in manu tua est : respiciat nos tantum dominus noster, et læti serviemus regi.
  26. Ex eo tempore usque in præsentem diem, in universa terra Ægypti regibus quinta pars solvitur, et factum est quasi in legem, absque terra sacerdotali, quæ libera ab hac conditione fuit.
  27. Habitavit ergo Israël in Ægypto, id est, in terra Gessen, et possedit eam : auctusque est, et multiplicatus nimis.
  28. Et vixit in ea decem et septem annis : factique sunt omnes dies vitæ illius, centum quadraginta septem annorum.
  29. Cumque appropinquare cerneret diem mortis suæ, vocavit filium suum Joseph, et dixit ad eum : Si inveni gratiam in conspectu tuo, pone manum tuam sub femore meo : et facies mihi misericordiam et veritatem, ut non sepelias me in Ægypto :
  30. sed dormiam cum patribus meis, et auferas me de terra hac, condasque in sepulchro majorum meorum. Cui respondit Joseph : Ego faciam quod jussisti.
  31. Et ille : Jura ergo, inquit, mihi. Quo jurante, adoravit Israël Deum, conversus ad lectuli caput.
Genesis 47 Text (KJV)
  1. Then Joseph came and told Pharaoh, and said, My father and my brethren, and their flocks, and their herds, and all that they have, are come out of the land of Canaan; and, behold, they are in the land of Goshen.
  2. And he took some of his brethren, even five men, and presented them unto Pharaoh.
  3. And Pharaoh said unto his brethren, What is your occupation? And they said unto Pharaoh, Thy servants are shepherds, both we, and also our fathers.
  4. They said moreover unto Pharaoh, For to sojourn in the land are we come; for thy servants have no pasture for their flocks; for the famine is sore in the land of Canaan: now therefore, we pray thee, let thy servants dwell in the land of Goshen.
  5. And Pharaoh spake unto Joseph, saying, Thy father and thy brethren are come unto thee:
  6. The land of Egypt is before thee; in the best of the land make thy father and brethren to dwell; in the land of Goshen let them dwell: and if thou knowest any men of activity among them, then make them rulers over my cattle.
  7. And Joseph brought in Jacob his father, and set him before Pharaoh: and Jacob blessed Pharaoh.
  8. And Pharaoh said unto Jacob, How old art thou?
  9. And Jacob said unto Pharaoh, The days of the years of my pilgrimage are an hundred and thirty years: few and evil have the days of the years of my life been, and have not attained unto the days of the years of the life of my fathers in the days of their pilgrimage.
  10. And Jacob blessed Pharaoh, and went out from before Pharaoh.
  11. And Joseph placed 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.
  12. And Joseph nourished his father, and his brethren, and all his father's household, with bread, according to their families.
  13. And there was no bread in all the land; for the famine was very sore, so that the land of Egypt and all the land of Canaan fainted by reason of the famine.
  14. And Joseph gathered up all the money that was found in the land of Egypt, and in the land of Canaan, for the corn which they bought: and Joseph brought the money into Pharaoh's house.
  15. And when money failed in the land of Egypt, and in the land of Canaan, all the Egyptians came unto Joseph, and said, Give us bread: for why should we die in thy presence? for the money faileth.
  16. And Joseph said, Give your cattle; and I will give you for your cattle, if money fail.
  17. And they brought their cattle unto Joseph: and Joseph gave them bread in exchange for horses, and for the flocks, and for the cattle of the herds, and for the asses: and he fed them with bread for all their cattle for that year.
  18. When that year was ended, they came unto him the second year, and said unto him, We will not hide it from my lord, how that our money is spent; my lord also hath our herds of cattle; there is not ought left in the sight of my lord, but our bodies, and our lands:
  19. Wherefore shall we die before thine eyes, both we and our land? buy us and our land for bread, and we and our land will be servants unto Pharaoh: and give us seed, that we may live, and not die, that the land be not desolate.
  20. And Joseph bought all the land of Egypt for Pharaoh; for the Egyptians sold every man his field, because the famine prevailed over them: so the land became Pharaoh's.
  21. And as for the people, he removed them to cities from one end of the borders of Egypt even to the other end thereof.
  22. Only the land of the priests bought he not; for the priests had a portion assigned them of Pharaoh, and did eat their portion which Pharaoh gave them: wherefore they sold not their lands.
  23. Then Joseph said unto the people, Behold, I have bought you this day and your land for Pharaoh: lo, here is seed for you, and ye shall sow the land.
  24. And it shall come to pass in the increase, that ye shall give the fifth part unto Pharaoh, and four parts shall be your own, for seed of the field, and for your food, and for them of your households, and for food for your little ones.
  25. And they said, Thou hast saved our lives: let us find grace 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 unto this day, that Pharaoh should have the fifth part; except the land of the priests only, which became not Pharaoh's.
  27. And Israel dwelt in the land of Egypt, in the country of Goshen; and they had possessions therein, and grew, and multiplied exceedingly.
  28. And Jacob lived in the land of Egypt seventeen years: so the whole age of Jacob was an hundred forty and seven years.
  29. And the time drew nigh that Israel must die: and he called his son Joseph, and said unto him, If now I have found grace in thy sight, put, I pray thee, thy hand under my thigh, and deal kindly and truly with me; bury me not, I pray thee, in Egypt:
  30. But I will lie with my fathers, and thou shalt carry me out of Egypt, and bury me in their buryingplace. And he said, I will do as thou hast said.
  31. And he said, Swear unto me. And he sware unto him. And Israel bowed himself upon the bed's head.
