Now when Jacob saw that there was corn in Egypt, Jacob said unto his sons, Why do ye look one upon another?
And he said , Behold, I have heard that there is corn in Egypt: get you down thither, and buy for us from thence; that we may live , and not die .
And Joseph's ten brethren went down to buy corn in Egypt.
But Benjamin, Joseph's brother, Jacob sent not with his brethren; for he said , Lest peradventure mischief befall him .
And the sons of Israel came to buy corn among those that came : for the famine was in the land of Canaan.
And Joseph was the governor over the land, and he it was that sold to all the people of the land: and Joseph's brethren came , and bowed down themselves before him with their faces to the earth.
