4 And Joseph said to his brothers, “Please come near to me.” So they came near. Then he said: “I am Joseph your brother, dwhom you sold into Egypt. 5 But now, do not therefore be grieved or angry with yourselves because you sold me here; efor God sent me before you to preserve life. 6 For these two years the ffamine has been in the land, and there are still five years in which there will be neither plowing nor harvesting. 7 And God gsent me before you to preserve a 1posterity for you in the earth, and to save your lives by a great deliverance. 8 So now it was not you who sent me here, but hGod; and He has made me ia father to Pharaoh, and lord of all his house, and a jruler throughout all the land of Egypt.
