CSB 28 Now Jacob had sent Judah ahead of him to Joseph to prepare for his arrival at Goshen. When they came to the land of Goshen, NIV 28 Now Jacob sent Judah ahead of him to Joseph to get directions to Goshen. When they arrived in the region of Goshen, CSB 29 Joseph hitched [the horses to] his chariot and went up to Goshen to meet his father Israel. Joseph presented himself to him, threw his arms around him, and wept for a long time. NIV 29 Joseph had his chariot made ready and went to Goshen to meet his father Israel. As soon as Joseph appeared before him, he threw his arms around his father and wept for a long time. CSB 30 Then Israel said to Joseph, "At last I can die, now that I have seen your face [and know] you are still alive!" NIV 30 Israel said to Joseph, “Now I am ready to die, since I have seen for myself that you are still alive.” CSB 31 Joseph said to his brothers and to his father's household, "I will go up and inform Pharaoh, telling him: My brothers and my father's household, who were in the land of Canaan, have come to me. NIV 31 Then Joseph said to his brothers and to his father’s household, “I will go up and speak to Pharaoh and will say to him, ‘My brothers and my father’s household, who were living in the land of Canaan, have come to me. CSB 32 The men are shepherds; indeed they raise livestock. They have brought their sheep and cattle and all that they have. NIV 32 The men are shepherds; they tend livestock, and they have brought along their flocks and herds and everything they own.’ CSB 33 When Pharaoh addresses you and asks, 'What is your occupation?' NIV 33 When Pharaoh calls you in and asks, ‘What is your occupation?’ CSB 34 you are to say, 'Your servants, both we and our fathers, have raised livestock from our youth until now.' Then you will be allowed to settle in the land of Goshen, since all shepherds are abhorrent to Egyptians." NIV 34 you should answer, ‘Your servants have tended livestock from our boyhood on, just as our fathers did.’ Then you will be allowed to settle in the region of Goshen, for all shepherds are detestable to the Egyptians.”
