He then presented his brothers to the king.
The king asked them, "What is your occupation?" "We are shepherds, sir, just as our ancestors were," they answered.
"We have come to live in this country, because in the land of Canaan the famine is so severe that there is no pasture for our flocks. Please give us permission to live in the region of Goshen."
The king said to Joseph, "Now that your father and your brothers have arrived,
the land of Egypt is theirs. Let them settle in the region of Goshen, the best part of the land. And if there are any capable men among them, put them in charge of my own livestock."
Then Joseph brought his father Jacob and presented him to the king. Jacob gave the king his blessing,
and the king asked him, "How old are you?"
Jacob answered, "My life of wandering has lasted a hundred and thirty years. Those years have been few and difficult, unlike the long years of my ancestors in their wanderings."
Jacob gave the king a farewell blessing and left.
Then Joseph settled his father and his brothers in Egypt, giving them property in the best of the land near the city of Rameses, as the king had commanded.
Joseph provided food for his father, his brothers, and all the rest of his father's family, including the very youngest.
