Bible: Gen. 45:4-8
45:4 Joseph said to his brothers, “Come closer to me,” so they came near. Then he said, “I am Joseph your brother, whom you sold into Egypt. 45:5 Now, do not be upset and do not be angry with yourselves because you sold me here, 1 for God sent me 2 ahead of you to preserve life! 45:6 For these past two years there has been famine in 3 the land and for five more years there will be neither plowing nor harvesting. 45:7 God sent me 4 ahead of you to preserve you 5 on the earth and to save your lives 6 by a great deliverance. 45:8 So now, it is not you who sent me here, but God. He has made me an adviser 7 to Pharaoh, lord over all his household, and ruler over all the land of Egypt.
