10 And thou shalt dwell in the land of Gesem of Arabia; and thou shalt be near me, thou and thy sons, and thy sons' sons, thy sheep and thine oxen, and whatsoever things are thine. 11 And I will nourish thee there: for the famine is yet for five years; lest thou be consumed, and thy sons, and all thy possessions. 12 Behold, your eyes see, and the eyes of my brother Benjamin, that it is my mouth that speaks to you. 13 Report, therefore, to my father all my glory in Egypt, and all things that ye have seen, and make haste and bring down my father hither. 14 And he fell on his brother Benjamin's neck, and wept on him; and Benjamin wept on his neck. 15 And he kissed all his brethren, and wept on them; and after these things his brethren spoke to him. 16 And the report was carried into the house of Pharao, saying, Joseph's brethren are come; and Pharao was glad, and his household. 17 And Pharao said to Joseph, Say to thy brethren, Do this; fill your wagons, and depart into the land of Chanaan. 18 And take up your father, and your possessions, and come to me; and I will give you of all the goods of Egypt, and ye shall eat the marrow of the land. 19 And do thou charge them thus; that they should take for them wagons out of the land of Egypt, for your little ones, and for your wives; and take up your father, and come.

10 καὶ κατοικήσεις ἐν γῇ Γεσὲμ ᾿Αραβίας καὶ ἔσῃ ἐγγύς μου σὺ καὶ οἱ υἱοί σου καὶ οἱ υἱοὶ τῶν υἱῶν σου, τὰ πρόβατά σου καὶ οἱ βόες σου καὶ ὅσα σοι ἐστί, 11 καὶ ἐκθρέψω σε ἐκεῖ· ἔτι γὰρ πέντε ἔτη λιμός· ἵνα μὴ ἐκτριβῇς σὺ καὶ οἱ υἱοί σου καὶ πάντα τὰ ὑπάρχοντά σου. 12 ἰδοὺ οἱ ὀφθαλμοὶ ὑμῶν βλέπουσι καὶ οἱ ὀφθαλμοὶ Βενιαμὶν τοῦ ἀδελφοῦ μου, ὅτι τὸ στόμα μου τὸ λαλοῦν πρὸς ὑμᾶς. 13 ἀπαγγείλατε οὖν τῷ πατρί μου πᾶσαν τὴν δόξαν μου τὴν ἐν Αἰγύπτῳ καὶ ὅσα εἴδετε, καὶ ταχύναντες καταγάγετε τὸν πατέρα μου ὧδε. 14 καὶ ἐπιπεσὼν ἐπὶ τὸν τράχηλον Βενιαμὶν τοῦ ἀδελφοῦ αὐτοῦ ἔκλαυσεν ἐπ᾿ αὐτῷ, καὶ Βενιαμὶν ἔκλαυσεν ἐπὶ τῷ τραχήλῳ αὐτοῦ. 15 καὶ καταφιλήσας πάντας τοὺς ἀδελφοὺς αὐτοῦ ἔκλαυσεν ἐπ᾿ αὐτοῖς, καὶ μετὰ ταῦτα ἐλάλησαν οἱ ἀδελφοὶ αὐτοῦ πρὸς αὐτόν. 16 Καὶ διεβοήθη ἡ φωνὴ εἰς τὸν οἶκον Φαραὼ λέγοντες· ἥκασιν οἱ ἀδελφοὶ ᾿Ιωσήφ. ἐχάρη δὲ Φαραὼ καὶ ἡ θεραπεία αὐτοῦ. 17 εἶπε δὲ Φαραὼ πρὸς ᾿Ιωσήφ· εἰπὸν τοῖς ἀδελφοῖς σου, τοῦτο ποιήσατε· γεμίσατε τὰ φορεῖα ὑμῶν καὶ ἀπέλθετε εἰς γῆν Χαναὰν 18 καὶ ἀναλαβόντες τὸν πατέρα ὑμῶν καὶ τὰ ὑπάρχοντα ὑμῶν ἥκετε πρός με, καὶ δώσω ὑμῖν πάντων τῶν ἀγαθῶν Αἰγύπτου, καὶ φάγεσθε τὸν μυελὸν τῆς γῆς. 19 σὺ δὲ ἔντειλαι ταῦτα, λαβεῖν αὐτοῖς ἁμάξας ἐκ γῆς Αἰγύπτου τοῖς παιδίοις ὑμῶν καὶ ταῖς γυναιξὶν ὑμῶν. καὶ ἀναλαβόντες τὸν πατέρα ὑμῶν παραγίνεσθε·
