Genesis 45 (WEBP)

[1] Then Joseph couldn’t control himself before all those who stood before him, and he called out, “Cause everyone to go out from me!” No one else stood with him, while Joseph made himself known to his brothers.
[2] He wept aloud. The Egyptians heard, and the house of Pharaoh heard.
[3] Joseph said to his brothers, “I am Joseph! Does my father still live?” His brothers couldn’t answer him; for they were terrified at his presence.
[4] Joseph said to his brothers, “Come near to me, please.” They came near. He said, “I am Joseph, your brother, whom you sold into Egypt.
[5] Now don’t be grieved, nor angry with yourselves, that you sold me here, for God sent me before you to preserve life.
[6] For these two years the famine has been in the land, and there are yet five years, in which there will be no plowing and no harvest.
[7] God sent me before you to preserve for you a remnant in the earth, and to save you alive by a great deliverance.
[8] So now it wasn’t you who sent me here, but God, and he has made me a father to Pharaoh, lord of all his house, and ruler over all the land of Egypt.
[9] Hurry, and go up to my father, and tell him, ‘This is what your son Joseph says, “God has made me lord of all Egypt. Come down to me. Don’t wait.
[10] You shall dwell in the land of Goshen, and you will be near to me, you, your children, your children’s children, your flocks, your herds, and all that you have.
[11] There I will provide for you; for there are yet five years of famine; lest you come to poverty, you, and your household, and all that you have.” ’
[12] Behold, your eyes see, and the eyes of my brother Benjamin, that it is my mouth that speaks to you.
[13] You shall tell my father of all my glory in Egypt, and of all that you have seen. You shall hurry and bring my father down here.”
[14] He fell on his brother Benjamin’s neck and wept, and Benjamin wept on his neck.
[15] He kissed all his brothers, and wept on them. After that his brothers talked with him.
[16] The report of it was heard in Pharaoh’s house, saying, “Joseph’s brothers have come.” It pleased Pharaoh well, and his servants.
[17] Pharaoh said to Joseph, “Tell your brothers, ‘Do this: Load your animals, and go, travel to the land of Canaan.
[18] Take your father and your households, and come to me, and I will give you the good of the land of Egypt, and you will eat the fat of the land.’
[19] Now you are commanded to do this: Take wagons out of the land of Egypt for your little ones, and for your wives, and bring your father, and come.
[20] Also, don’t concern yourselves about your belongings, for the good of all the land of Egypt is yours.”
[21] The sons of Israel did so. Joseph gave them wagons, according to the commandment of Pharaoh, and gave them provision for the way.
[22] He gave each one of them changes of clothing, but to Benjamin he gave three hundred pieces of silver and five changes of clothing.
[23] He sent the following to his father: ten donkeys loaded with the good things of Egypt, and ten female donkeys loaded with grain and bread and provision for his father by the way.
[24] So he sent his brothers away, and they departed. He said to them, “See that you don’t quarrel on the way.”
[25] They went up out of Egypt, and came into the land of Canaan, to Jacob their father.
[26] They told him, saying, “Joseph is still alive, and he is ruler over all the land of Egypt.” His heart fainted, for he didn’t believe them.
[27] They told him all the words of Joseph, which he had said to them. When he saw the wagons which Joseph had sent to carry him, the spirit of Jacob, their father, revived.
[28] Israel said, “It is enough. Joseph my son is still alive. I will go and see him before I die.”

Genesis 45 (KJVS)

[1] Then Joseph H3130 could H3201 (8804) not refrain H662 (8692) himself before all them that stood H5324 (8737) by him; and he cried H7121 (8799), Cause H3318 every man H376 to go out H3318 (8685) from me. And there stood H5975 (8804) no man H376 with him, while Joseph H3130 made himself known H3045 (8692) unto his brethren H251.
[2] And he wept H6963 H1065 aloud H5414 (8799): and the Egyptians H4714 and the house H1004 of Pharaoh H6547 heard H8085 (8799) H8085 (8799).
[3] And Joseph H3130 said H559 (8799) unto his brethren H251, I [am] Joseph H3130; doth my father H1 yet live H2416? And his brethren H251 could H3201 (8804) not answer H6030 (8800) him; for they were troubled H926 (8738) at his presence H6440.
[4] And Joseph H3130 said H559 (8799) unto his brethren H251, Come near H5066 (8798) to me, I pray you. And they came near H5066 (8799). And he said H559 (8799), I [am] Joseph H3130 your brother H251, whom ye sold H4376 (8804) into Egypt H4714.
[5] Now therefore be not grieved H6087 (8735), nor angry H2734 (8799) with yourselves H5869, that ye sold H4376 (8804) me hither: for God H430 did send H7971 (8804) me before you H6440 to preserve life H4241.
[6] For these two years H8141 [hath] the famine H7458 [been] in H7130 the land H776: and yet [there are] five H2568 years H8141, in the which [there shall] neither H369 [be] earing H2758 nor harvest H7105.
[7] And God H430 sent H7971 (8799) me before you H6440 to preserve H7760 (8800) you a posterity H7611 in the earth H776, and to save your lives H2421 (8687) by a great H1419 deliverance H6413.
[8] So now [it was] not you [that] sent H7971 (8804) me hither, but God H430: and he hath made H7760 (8799) me a father H1 to Pharaoh H6547, and lord H113 of all his house H1004, and a ruler H4910 (8802) throughout all the land H776 of Egypt H4714.
[9] Haste H4116 (8761) ye, and go up H5927 (8798) to my father H1, and say H559 (8804) unto him, Thus saith H559 (8804) thy son H1121 Joseph H3130, God H430 hath made H7760 (8804) me lord H113 of all Egypt H4714: come down H3381 (8798) unto me, tarry H5975 (8799) not:
[10] And thou shalt dwell H3427 (8804) in the land H776 of Goshen H1657, and thou shalt be near H7138 unto me, thou, and thy children H1121, and thy children’s H1121 children H1121, and thy flocks H6629, and thy herds H1241, and all that thou hast:
[11] And there will I nourish H3557 (8773) thee; for yet [there are] five H2568 years H8141 of famine H7458; lest thou, and thy household H1004, and all that thou hast, come to poverty H3423 (8735).
[12] And, behold, your eyes H5869 see H7200 (8802), and the eyes H5869 of my brother H251 Benjamin H1144, that [it is] my mouth H6310 that speaketh H1696 (8764) unto you.
[13] And ye shall tell H5046 (8689) my father H1 of all my glory H3519 in Egypt H4714, and of all that ye have seen H7200 (8804); and ye shall haste H4116 (8765) and bring down H3381 (8689) my father H1 hither.
[14] And he fell H5307 (8799) upon his brother H251 Benjamin’s H1144 neck H6677, and wept H1058 (8799); and Benjamin H1144 wept H1058 (8804) upon his neck H6677.
[15] Moreover he kissed H5401 (8762) all his brethren H251, and wept H1058 (8799) upon them: and after H310 that his brethren H251 talked H1696 (8765) with him.
[16] And the fame H6963 thereof was heard H8085 (8738) in Pharaoh’s H6547 house H1004, saying H559 (8800), Joseph’s H3130 brethren H251 are come H935 (8804): and it pleased H3190 H5869 Pharaoh H6547 well H3190 (8799) H5869, and H5869 his servants H5650.
[17] And Pharaoh H6547 said H559 (8799) unto Joseph H3130, Say H559 (8798) unto thy brethren H251, This do H6213 (8798) ye; lade H2943 (8798) your beasts H1165, and go H3212 (8798), get H935 (8798) you unto the land H776 of Canaan H3667;
[18] And take H3947 (8798) your father H1 and your households H1004, and come H935 (8798) unto me: and I will give H5414 (8799) you the good H2898 of the land H776 of Egypt H4714, and ye shall eat H398 (8798) the fat H2459 of the land H776.
[19] Now thou art commanded H6680 (8795), this do H6213 (8798) ye; take H3947 (8798) you wagons H5699 out of the land H776 of Egypt H4714 for your little ones H2945, and for your wives H802, and bring H5375 (8804) your father H1, and come H935 (8804).
[20] Also H5869 regard H2347 (8799) not your stuff H3627; for the good H2898 of all the land H776 of Egypt H4714 [is] yours.
[21] And the children H1121 of Israel H3478 did H6213 (8799) so: and Joseph H3130 gave H5414 (8799) them wagons H5699, according to the commandment H6310 of Pharaoh H6547, and gave H5414 (8799) them provision H6720 for the way H1870.
[22] To all of them he gave H5414 (8804) each man H376 changes H2487 of raiment H8071; but to Benjamin H1144 he gave H5414 (8804) three H7969 hundred H3967 [pieces] of silver H3701, and five H2568 changes H2487 of raiment H8071.
[23] And to his father H1 he sent H7971 (8804) after this H2063 [manner]; ten H6235 asses H860 laden H5375 (8802) with the good things H2898 of Egypt H4714, and ten H6235 she asses H2543 laden H5375 (8802) with corn H1250 and bread H3899 and meat H4202 for his father H1 by the way H1870.
[24] So he sent H7971 his brethren H251 away H7971 (8762), and they departed H3212 (8799): and he said H559 (8799) unto them, See that ye fall not out H7264 (8799) by the way H1870.
[25] And they went up H5927 (8799) out of Egypt H4714, and came H935 (8799) into the land H776 of Canaan H3667 unto Jacob H3290 their father H1,
[26] And told H5046 (8686) him, saying H559 (8800), Joseph H3130 [is] yet alive H2416, and he [is] governor H4910 (8802) over all the land H776 of Egypt H4714. And Jacob’s heart H3820 fainted H6313 (8799), for he believed H539 (8689) them not.
[27] And they told H1696 (8762) him all the words H1697 of Joseph H3130, which he had said H1696 (8765) unto them: and when he saw H7200 (8799) the wagons H5699 which Joseph H3130 had sent H7971 (8804) to carry H5375 (8800) him, the spirit H7307 of Jacob H3290 their father H1 revived H2421 (8799):
[28] And Israel H3478 said H559 (8799), [It is] enough H7227; Joseph H3130 my son H1121 [is] yet alive H2416: I will go H3212 (8799) and see him H7200 (8799) before I die H4191 (8799).

Young’s Literal Translation

Genesis 45 (YLT)

[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,
[2] and he giveth forth his voice in weeping, and the Egyptians hear, and the house of Pharaoh heareth.
[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.
[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;
[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.
[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;
[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;
[8] and now, ye-ye 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.
[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,
[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,
[11] and I have nourished thee there-for yet are five years of famine-lest thou become poor, thou and thy household, and all that thou hast.
[12] ‘And lo, your eyes are seeing, and the eyes of my brother Benjamin, that it is my mouth which is speaking unto you;
[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.’
[14] And he falleth on the neck of Benjamin his brother, and weepeth, and Benjamin hath wept on his neck;
[15] and he kisseth all his brethren, and weepeth over them; and afterwards have his brethren spoken with him.
[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,
[17] and Pharaoh saith unto Joseph, ‘Say unto thy brethren, This do ye: lade your beasts, and go, enter ye the land of Canaan,
[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.
[19] ‘Yea, thou-thou 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;
[20] and your eye hath no pity on your vessels, for the good of all the land of Egypt is yours.’
[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;
[22] to all of them hath he given-to each changes of garments, and to Benjamin he hath given three hundred silverlings, and five changes of garments;
[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.
[24] And he sendeth his brethren away, and they go; and he saith unto them, ‘Be not angry in the way.’
[25] And they go up out of Egypt, and come in to the land of Canaan, unto Jacob their father,
[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.
[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;
[28] and Israel saith, ‘Enough! Joseph my son is yet alive; I go and see him before I die.’
