Genesis 45:17-25 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
17 Pharaoh said to Joseph, "Tell your brothers, 'Do this: Load your animals1 and return to the land of Canaan,2 18 and bring your father and your families back to me. I will give you the best of the land of Egypt3 and you can enjoy the fat of the land.'4 19 "You are also directed to tell them, 'Do this: Take some carts5 from Egypt for your children and your wives, and get your father and come. 20 Never mind about your belongings,6 because the best of all Egypt7 will be yours.' " 21 So the sons of Israel did this. Joseph gave them carts,8 as Pharaoh had commanded, and he also gave them provisions for their journey.9 22 To each of them he gave new clothing,10 but to Benjamin he gave three hundred shekelsa of silver and five sets of clothes.11 23 And this is what he sent to his father: ten donkeys12 loaded with the best things13 of Egypt, and ten female donkeys loaded with grain and bread and other provisions for his journey.14 24 Then he sent his brothers away, and as they were leaving he said to them, "Don't quarrel on the way!"15 25 So they went up out of Egypt16 and came to their father Jacob in the land of Canaan.17
