Genesis 42:1-6 (GOD'S WORD Translation)

View In My Bible
1 When Jacob found out that grain was for sale in Egypt, he said to his sons, "Why do you keep looking at each other? 2 I've heard there's grain for sale in Egypt. Go there and buy some for us so that we won't starve to death." 3 Ten of Joseph's brothers went to buy grain in Egypt. 4 Jacob wouldn't send Joseph's brother Benjamin with the other brothers, because he was afraid that something would happen to him. 5 Israel's sons left with the others who were going to buy grain, because there was also famine in Canaan. 6 As governor of the country, Joseph was selling grain to everyone. So when Joseph's brothers arrived, they bowed in front of him with their faces touching the ground.
