Bible: Genesis 46:31-34

46:31 Then Joseph said to his brothers and his father’s household, “I will go up and tell Pharaoh, 1 My brothers and my father’s household who were in the land of Canaan have come to me. 46:32 The men are shepherds; 2  they take care of livestock. 3  They have brought their flocks and their herds and all that they have.’ 46:33 Pharaoh will summon you and say, ‘What is your occupation?’ 46:34 Tell him, ‘Your servants have taken care of cattle 4  from our youth until now, both we and our fathers,’ so that you may live in the land of Goshen, 5  for everyone who takes care of sheep is disgusting 6  to the Egyptians.”
