Jacob's Family Settles in Goshen

1 Then 1Joseph went in and told Pharaoh, and said, "My father and my brothers and their flocks and their herds and all that they have, have come out of the land of Canaan; and behold, they are in the land of 2Goshen." 2 He took five men from among his brothers and 3presented them to Pharaoh. 3 Then Pharaoh said to his brothers, "4What is your occupation?" So they said to Pharaoh, "Your servants are 5shepherds, both we and our fathers." 4 They said to Pharaoh, "6We have come to sojourn in the land, for there is no pasture for your servants' flocks, for 7the famine is severe in the land of Canaan. Now, therefore, please let your servants a8live in the land of Goshen." 5 Then Pharaoh said to bJoseph, "Your father and your brothers have come to you. 6 "The land of Egypt is cat your disposal; dsettle your father and your brothers in 9the best of the land, let them elive in the land of Goshen; and if you know any 10capable men among them, then fput them in charge of my livestock."
