He named the second son Ephraim [Blessed Twice With Children], because God gave him children in the land where he had suffered.
The seven years when there was plenty of food in Egypt came to an end.
Then the seven years of famine began as Joseph had said they would. All the other countries were experiencing famine. Yet, there was food in Egypt.
When everyone in Egypt began to feel the effects of the famine, the people cried to Pharaoh for food. But Pharaoh said to all the Egyptians, "Go to Joseph! Do what he tells you!"
When the famine had spread all over the country, Joseph opened all the storehouses and sold grain to the Egyptians. He did this because the famine was severe in Egypt.
The whole world came to Joseph in Egypt to buy grain, since the famine was so severe all over the world.
