Israel also came into Egypt
That is, Jacob, as afterwards expressed, who had the name of Israel, from his wrestling with God and prevailing. He came into Egypt, being invited by Pharaoh, and having heard of his son Joseph being alive, and of his exaltation.
And Jacob sojourned in the land of Ham:
the same with Egypt; Mizraim, from whence Egypt has its name, being the son of Ham, ( Genesis 10:6 ) . Hence Egypt is called by Plutarch F11 Chemia; and Diodorus Siculus F12 speaks of a city in Thebais, or Upper Egypt, which was called by the inhabitants Chemmis, interpreted by them the city of Pan; and Plutarch
F11 De Iside.
