Then Josephcame and toldPharaoh, 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 tooksome of his brethren, even fivemen, and presented them untoPharaoh.3
And Pharaohsaid 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 servantsdwell in the land of Goshen.5
And Pharaohspake unto Joseph,saying , Thy father and thy brethren are come unto thee:
The land of Egypt is before thee; in the best of the landmake 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 themrulers over my cattle.
