Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Genesis 47:23-28

_ _ Joseph said, Behold, etc. — The lands being sold to the government (Genesis 47:19, Genesis 47:20), seed would be distributed for the first crop after the famine; and the people would occupy them as tenants-at-will on the payment of a produce rent, almost the same rule as obtains in Egypt in the present day.

Matthew Henry's Commentary
