Genesis 45 (Hebrew Names Version)

View In My Bible
1 Then Yosef couldn't control himself before all those who stood before him, and he cried, "Cause every man to go out from me!" There stood no man with him, while Yosef made himself known to his brothers. 2 He wept aloud. The Mitzrim heard, and the house of Par`oh heard. 3 Yosef said to his brothers, "I am Yosef! Does my father still live?" His brothers couldn't answer him; for they were terrified at his presence. 4 Yosef said to his brothers, "Come near to me, please." They came near. "He said, I am Yosef, your brother, whom you sold into Mitzrayim. 5 Now don't be grieved, nor angry with yourselves, that you sold me here, for God sent me before you to preserve life. 6 For these two years has the famine been in the land, and there are yet five years, in which there will be neither plowing nor harvest. 7 God sent me before you to preserve you a remnant in the eretz, and to save you alive by a great deliverance. 8 So now it wasn't you who sent me here, but God, and he has made me a father to Par`oh, lord of all his house, and ruler over all the land of Mitzrayim. 9 Hurry, and go up to my father, and tell him, 'This is what your son Yosef says, "God has made me lord of all Mitzrayim. Come down to me. Don't wait. 10 You shall dwell in the land of Goshen, and you will be near to me, you, your children, your children's children, your flocks, your herds, and all that you have. 11 There I will nourish you; for there are yet five years of famine; lest you come to poverty, you, and your household, and all that you have."' 12 Behold, your eyes see, and the eyes of my brother Binyamin, that it is my mouth that speaks to you. 13 You shall tell my father of all my glory in Mitzrayim, and of all that you have seen. You shall hurry and bring my father down here." 14 He fell on his brother Binyamin's neck, and wept, and Binyamin wept on his neck. 15 He kissed all his brothers, and wept on them. After that his brothers talked with him. 16 The report of it was heard in Par`oh's house, saying, "Yosef's brothers have come." It pleased Par`oh well, and his servants. 17 Par`oh said to Yosef, "Tell your brothers, 'Do this. Load your animals, and go, travel to the land of Kana`an. 18 Take your father and your households, and come to me, and I will give you the good of the land of Mitzrayim, and you will eat the fat of the land.' 19 Now you are commanded: do this. Take wagons out of the land of Mitzrayim for your little ones, and for your wives, and bring your father, and come. 20 Also, don't concern yourselves about your belongings, for the good of all of the land of Mitzrayim is yours." 21 The sons of Yisra'el did so. Yosef gave them wagons, according to the mitzvah of Par`oh, and gave them provision for the way. 22 To all of them he gave each man changes of clothing, but to Binyamin he gave three hundred pieces of silver and five changes of clothing. 23 To his father, he sent after this manner: ten donkeys laden with the good things of Mitzrayim, and ten she-asses laden with grain and bread and provision for his father by the way. 24 So he sent his brothers away, and they departed. He said to them, "See that you don't quarrel on the way." 25 They went up out of Mitzrayim, and came into the land of Kana`an, to Ya`akov their father. 26 They told him, saying, "Yosef is still alive, and he is ruler over all the land of Mitzrayim." His heart fainted, for he didn't believe them. 27 They told him all the words of Yosef, which he had said to them. When he saw the wagons which Yosef had sent to carry him, the spirit of Ya`akov, their father, revived. 28 Yisra'el said, "It is enough. Yosef my son is still alive. I will go and see him before I die."
