Jacob and his family journeyed to Egypt as Joseph had told them.
There were seventy person in all that moved to Egypt.
On the way, Israel stopped in Beersheba to worship God. God told
him in a night vision not to be afraid to go to Egypt because he
would be with him.
Jacob sent Judah ahead of them to prepare for their entrance into
Goshen. Joseph got in his chariot and went to Goshen to meet his
father. When Joseph arrived in Goshen, he fell on his father's neck
and wept a long time.
Joseph told his family what he would tell Pharaoh. Then he told
them what they should say to Pharaoh when they met him.
Joseph took five of his brothers in to meet Pharaoh. They told
Pharaoh what Joseph had told them to say then asked if they could
live in Goshen. Pharaoh told Joseph to let them live in Goshen.
Then Joseph took his father in to meet Pharaoh. Jacob blessed Pharaoh
and then they talked. When they were finished, Jacob blessed Pharaoh
again and departed.
Then Joseph placed his family in the land of Ramses, which is in
Goshen, as Pharaoh had commanded. And he provided them with bread
during the famine.
