  1. God spoke to Israel in a vision that night and said, “Jacob, Jacob!” “Here I am,” he answered. “I am God, the God of your father,” he said. “Don’t be afraid to go to Egypt, because I will make you a great nation there. I will go with you to Egypt, and I will make sure you come back again. Joseph will close your eyes ⌞when you die⌟.”
    Genesis 46:2‭-‬4 GW

  2. Now, when Pharaoh calls for you and asks, ‘What kind of work do you do?’ you must answer, ‘We have taken care of herds all our lives, as our ancestors have done.’ ⌞You must say this⌟ so that you may live in the region of Goshen, because all shepherds are disgusting to Egyptians.”
    Genesis 46:33‭-‬34 GW

  3. All of Egypt is available to you. Have your father and your brothers live in the best part of the land. Let them live in Goshen. If they are qualified, put them in charge of my livestock.”
    Genesis 47:6 GW

  4. Then Jacob blessed Pharaoh and left.
    Genesis 47:10 GW

  5. Joseph bought all the land in Egypt for Pharaoh. Every Egyptian sold his fields because the famine was so severe. The land became Pharaoh’s.
    Genesis 47:20 GW

  6. All over Egypt Joseph moved the people to the cities. But he didn’t buy the priests’ land because the priests received an income from Pharaoh, and they lived on that income. That’s why they didn’t sell their land.
    Genesis 47:21‭-‬22 GW

  7. Every time you harvest, give one-fifth of the produce to Pharaoh. Four-fifths will be yours to use as seed for your fields and as food for your households.” Joseph made a law concerning the land in Egypt which is still in force today: One-fifth ⌞of the produce⌟ belongs to Pharaoh. Only the land of the priests didn’t belong to Pharaoh.
    Genesis 47:24‭, ‬26 GW

  8. So the Israelites settled in Egypt in the region of Goshen. They acquired property there and had many children.
