Now°, therefore, please° let your servants° Iclive° in the land° of Goshen°.” 5 Then Pharaoh° said° to IJoseph°, “Your father° and your brothers° have come° to you. 6 The land° of Egypt° is Iat your disposal°; IIsettle° your father° and your brothers° in athe best° of the land°, let them IIIlive° in the land° of Goshen°; and if° you know° any° bcapable° men° among them, then IVput° them in charge° of my livestock°.”

20 ¶ So Joseph° bought° all° the land° of Egypt° for Pharaoh°, for Ievery° Egyptian° sold° his field°, because° the famine° was severe° upon them.
