Joseph maketh himself known to his brethren.
Genesis 45:1 And Joseph hath not been able to refrain himself before all those standing by him, and he calleth, 'Put out every man from me;' and no man hath stood with him when Joseph maketh himself known unto his brethren, Genesis 45:2 and he giveth forth his voice in weeping, and the Egyptians hear, and the house of Pharaoh heareth. Genesis 45:3 And Joseph saith unto his brethren, 'I [am] Joseph, is my father yet alive?' and his brethren have not been able to answer him, for they have been troubled at his presence. Genesis 45:4 And Joseph saith unto his brethren, 'Come nigh unto me, I pray you,' and they come nigh; and he saith, 'I [am] Joseph, your brother, whom ye sold into Egypt;
He comforteth them in God's providence.
Genesis 45:5 and now, be not grieved, nor let it be displeasing in your eyes that ye sold me hither, for to preserve life hath God sent me before you. Genesis 45:6 'Because these two years the famine [is] in the heart of the land, and yet [are] five years, [in] which there is neither ploughing nor harvest; Genesis 45:7 and God sendeth me before you, to place of you a remnant in the land, and to give life to you by a great escape; Genesis 45:8 and now, yeye have not sent me hither, but God, and He doth set me for a father to Pharaoh, and for lord to all his house, and ruler over all the land of Egypt.
He sendeth for his father.
Genesis 45:9 'Haste, and go up unto my father, then ye have said to him, Thus said Joseph thy son, God hath set me for lord to all Egypt; come down unto me, stay not, Genesis 45:10 and thou hast dwelt in the land of Goshen, and been near unto me, thou and thy sons, and thy son's sons, and thy flock, and thy herd, and all that thou hast, Genesis 45:11 and I have nourished thee therefor yet [are] five years of faminelest thou become poor, thou and thy household, and all that thou hast. Genesis 45:12 'And lo, your eyes are seeing, and the eyes of my brother Benjamin, that [it is] my mouth which is speaking unto you; Genesis 45:13 and ye have declared to my father all my honour in Egypt, and all that ye have seen, and ye have hasted, and have brought down my father hither.' Genesis 45:14 And he falleth on the neck of Benjamin his brother, and weepeth, and Benjamin hath wept on his neck; Genesis 45:15 and he kisseth all his brethren, and weepeth over them; and afterwards have his brethren spoken with him.
Pharaoh confirmeth it.
Genesis 45:16 And the sound hath been heard in the house of Pharaoh, saying, 'Come have the brethren of Joseph;' and it is good in the eyes of Pharaoh, and in the eyes of his servants, Genesis 45:17 and Pharaoh saith unto Joseph, 'Say unto thy brethren, This do ye: lade your beasts, and go, enter ye the land of Canaan, Genesis 45:18 and take your father, and your households, and come unto me, and I give to you the good of the land of Egypt, and eat ye the fat of the land. Genesis 45:19 'Yea, thouthou hast been commanded: this do ye, take for yourselves out of the land of Egypt, waggons for your infants, and for your wives, and ye have brought your father, and come; Genesis 45:20 and your eye hath no pity on your vessels, for the good of all the land of Egypt [is] yours.'
Joseph furnisheth them for their journey, and exhorteth them to concord.
Genesis 45:21 And the sons of Israel do so, and Joseph giveth waggons to them by the command of Pharaoh, and he giveth to them provision for the way; Genesis 45:22 to all of them hath he givento each changes of garments, and to Benjamin he hath given three hundred silverlings, and five changes of garments; Genesis 45:23 and to his father he hath sent thus: ten asses bearing of the good things of Egypt, and ten she-asses bearing corn and bread, even food for his father for the way. Genesis 45:24 And he sendeth his brethren away, and they go; and he saith unto them, 'Be not angry in the way.'
Jacob is revived with the news.
Genesis 45:25 And they go up out of Egypt, and come in to the land of Canaan, unto Jacob their father, Genesis 45:26 and they declare to him, saying, 'Joseph [is] yet alive,' and that he [is] ruler over all the land of Egypt; and his heart ceaseth, for he hath not given credence to them. Genesis 45:27 And they speak unto him all the words of Joseph, which he hath spoken unto them, and he seeth the waggons which Joseph hath sent to bear him away, and live doth the spirit of Jacob their father; Genesis 45:28 and Israel saith, 'Enough! Joseph my son [is] yet alive; I go and see him before I die.'
