Genesis 45
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1And Yoseph was not able to keep himself back from all who were standing before him, and he said, “Send everyone out from my presence”, and no man stayed with him when Yoseph was revealed to his brothers. 2And he lifted his voice with weeping and the Egyptians heard, and it was heard in the house of Pharaoh. 3And Yoseph said to his brothers, “I am Yoseph, your brother. Is my father still living?”, and his brothers were not able to give to him an answer, because they were afraid in his presence.

4And Yoseph said to his brothers, “Come near to me”, and they approached him and he said to them, “I am Yoseph your brother whom you sold to the Egyptians. 5And now you will not sorrow for yourselves and do not let it be evil in your eyes that you sold me here, because for sustenance God has sent me before you. 6Because now there would have been two years of famine within the land, and again there would be five years when there is no one sowing or reaping. 7And God sent me before you to establish you as a remnant and to save life for you with a great salvation in the earth. 8And now, it was not you who sent me here, but God made me a father to Pharaoh and Lord over all his house and Ruler in all the land of Egypt.

9Quickly go up to my father and say to him, “Thus says your son, Yoseph, ‘God has made me the Lord over all Egypt; come down to me and do not tarry: 10And settle in the land of Geshan, and be near to me, you and your children, and the children of your house, and your flocks, and your cattle and everything that you have. 11And I shall support you there, because the famine remains five years more, lest you and your household be destroyed, and everything that you have. 12And behold, your eyes see and the eyes of my brother Benyamin, that my mouth is speaking with you. 13And show my father all my glory that is in Egypt, and all that you see, and hurry, bring my father down here.’” 14And he fell on the neck of Benyamin, his brother, and wept, and Benjamin wept on his neck. 15And he kissed all his brothers and wept upon them, and after that his brothers spoke with him.

16And a voice was heard in the house of Pharaoh, that said, “The brothers of Yoseph have come”, and the report was pleasing in the eyes of Pharaoh and in the eyes of his Servants. 17And Pharaoh said to Yoseph, “Say to your brothers thus: ‘Load your animals with grain and go bring it to the land of Canaan; 18And take your father and the people of your house and bring them to me, and I shall give you the good of the land of Egypt, and eat the fat of the land.’ 19And you now are authorized to say so to your brothers: ‘Take for yourselves wagons from the land of Egypt for your wives and for your little ones and take your father and come. 20And do let not your eyes gaze on your property, because the blessing of all the land of Egypt is yours.’”

21And the sons of Israel did so, and Yoseph gave wagons to them by the word of the mouth of Pharaoh, and he gave provisions for the road to all of them. 22And he gave every man a pair of garments, and to Benyamin he gave three hundred silver coins and five pairs of garments. 23And thus he sent to his father, and ten donkeys loaded with the good of the land of Egypt, and ten she donkeys loaded with grain and wine and provisions for his father on the road.

24And he sent them and they went and he said to them, “Do not argue on the road.”

25And they came up from Egypt and they came to the land of Canaan to Yaquuv their father. 26And they told him and they said to him, “Yoseph is still alive and he is Ruler in all the land of Egypt”, and he turned away in his heart because he did not believe them. 27And they told him all the words that Yoseph had said to them, and Yaquuv saw the wagons that Yoseph sent to take him, and the spirit of Yaquuv their father was comforted: 28And he said, “This is great to me, that Yoseph my son is still alive; I shall go see him before I die.”
