15:13 Then the
Lord said to Abram, “Know for certain 1 that your descendants will be strangers 2 in a foreign country. 3 They will be enslaved and oppressed 4 for four hundred years. 15:14 But I will execute judgment on the nation that they will serve. 5 Afterward they will come out with many possessions. 15:15 But as for you, 6 you will go to your ancestors 7 in peace and be buried at a good old age. 8 15:16 In the fourth generation 9 your descendants 10 will return here, for the sin of the Amorites has not yet reached its limit.” 11
45:7 God sent me 1 ahead of you to preserve you 2 on the earth and to save your lives 3 by a great deliverance. 45:8 So now, it is not you who sent me here, but God. He has made me an adviser 4 to Pharaoh, lord over all his household, and ruler over all the land of Egypt. 45:9 Now go up to my father quickly 5 and tell him, ‘This is what your son Joseph says: “God has made me lord of all Egypt. Come down to me; do not delay!
