Bible: Gen 45:5-11

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. 45:9 Now go up to my father quickly 8  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! 45:10 You will live 9  in the land of Goshen, and you will be near me – you, your children, your grandchildren, your flocks, your herds, and everything you have. 45:11 I will provide you with food 10  there because there will be five more years of famine. Otherwise you would become poor – you, your household, and everyone who belongs to you.”’
