Genesis 42:1-6 (The Message)

View In My Bible
1 When Jacob learned that there was food in Egypt, he said to his sons, "Why do you sit around here and look at one another? 2 I've heard that there is food in Egypt. Go down there and buy some so that we can survive and not starve to death." 3 Ten of Joseph's brothers went down to Egypt to get food. 4 Jacob didn't send Joseph's brother Benjamin with them; he was afraid that something bad might happen to him. 5 So Israel's sons joined everyone else that was going to Egypt to buy food, for Canaan, too, was hit hard by the famine. 6 Joseph was running the country; he was the one who gave out rations to all the people. When Joseph's brothers arrived, they treated him with honor, bowing to him.
