What does the Great Commission have to do with mobile devices? More than you might think.
46:34 Tell him, ‘Your servants have taken care of cattle27 from our youth until now, both we and our fathers,’ so that you may live in the land of Goshen,28 for everyone who takes care of sheep is disgusting29 to the Egyptians.”
tn Heb “your servants are men of cattle.”
sn So that you may live in the land of Goshen. Joseph is apparently trying to stress to Pharaoh that his family is self-sufficient, that they will not be a drain on the economy of Egypt. But they will need land for their animals and so Goshen, located on the edge of Egypt, would be a suitable place for them to live. The settled Egyptians were uneasy with nomadic people, but if Jacob and his family settled in Goshen they would represent no threat.
