Genesis 45:16-28New American Standard Bible (NASB)
16 Now when the [a]news was heard in Pharaoh’s house [b]that Joseph’s brothers had come, it [c]pleased Pharaoh and his servants.17 Then Pharaoh said to Joseph, “Say to your brothers, ‘Do this: load your beasts and [d]go to the land of Canaan,18 and take your father and your households and come to me, and I will give you the [e]best of the land of Egypt and you will eat the fat of the land.’19 Now you are ordered, ‘Do this: [f]take wagons from the land of Egypt for your little ones and for your wives, and bring your father and come.20 Do not [g]concern yourselves with your goods, for the [h]best of all the land of Egypt is yours.’”
21 Then the sons of Israel did so; and Joseph gave them wagons according to the [i]command of Pharaoh, and gave them provisions for the journey.22 To [j]each of them he gave changes of garments, but to Benjamin he gave three hundred pieces of silver and five changes of garments.23 To his father he sent [k]as follows: ten donkeys loaded with the [l]best things of Egypt, and ten female donkeys loaded with grain and bread and sustenance for his father [m]on the journey.
24 So he sent his brothers away, and [n]as they departed, he said to them, “Do not [o]quarrel on the journey.”25 Then they went up from Egypt, and came to the land of Canaan to their father Jacob.26 They told him, saying, “Joseph is still alive, and indeed he is ruler over all the land of Egypt.” But [p]he was stunned, for he did not believe them.27 When they told him all the words of Joseph that he had spoken to them, and when he saw the wagons that Joseph had sent to carry him, the spirit of their father Jacob revived.28 Then Israel said, “It is enough; my son Joseph is still alive. I will go and see him before I die.”
