Day 3

Written on 12/31/2019


Genesis 45:8-18

So it was not you who sent me here, but God; and he has made me a father to Pharaoh, lord of all his household and ruler over the whole land of Egypt. 

Hurry, go up to my father, and tell him, ‘Here is what your son Yosef says: “God has made me lord of all Egypt! Come down to me, don’t delay! 

10 You will live in the land of Goshen and be near me — you, your children, your grandchildren, flocks, herds, everything you own. 

11 I will provide for you there, so that you won’t become poverty-stricken, you, your household and all that you have; because five years of famine are yet to come.”’ 

12 Here! Your own eyes see, and the eyes of my brother Binyamin, that it is my own mouth speaking to you. 

13 Tell my father how honored I am in Egypt and everything you have seen, and quickly bring my father down here!” 

14 Then he embraced his brother Binyamin and wept, and Binyamin wept on his neck, 

15 and he kissed all his brothers and wept on them. After that, his brothers talked with him.

16 The report of this reached Pharaoh’s house: “Yosef’s brothers have come”; and Pharaoh and his servants were pleased. 

17 Pharaoh said to Yosef, “Tell your brothers, ‘Here is what you are to do. Load up your animals, go to the land of Kena‘an, 

18 take your father and your families, and come back to me. I will give you good property in Egypt, and you will eat the fat of the land.

 

Acts 7:13-15

13 The second time, Yosef revealed his identity to his brothers, and Yosef’s family became known to Pharaoh. 

14 Yosef then sent for his father Ya‘akov and all his relatives, seventy-five people. 

1And Ya‘akov went down to Egypt; there he died, as did our other ancestors.
