Joseph became a ruler in Egypt. Pharaoh was the only person in the land who
had more power. Joseph was given a wife and they had two sons. There were good
crops for 7 years and Joseph had the people to store the grain. Then it quit
raining and no crops would grow. The famine was over all the earth, and Egypt
was the only country with food. Jacob sent 10 of his sons to Egypt to buy
grain for food. The brothers bowed down before Joseph. He knew who they were,
but they didn't recognize him. He gave them food, kept one of the brothers in
prison, and told them that when they came again, they would have to bring
their youngest brother. (Benjamin was Joseph's own brother.) Jacob was afraid
to send Benjamin, but Benjamin went with the brothers when they returned to
Egypt to buy grain a second time. This time Joseph told them who he really
was. They were afraid because of the way they had treated him, but Joseph was
forgiving. He told them to go and get their father and move him and their
families to Egypt because the famine would not be over for a long time. Jacob
was so happy when they told him about Joseph. Jacob and all the family moved
to Egypt and he was able to see his son again. The famine lasted for 7 years.
The Egyptians spent all their money for grain. Then they traded their
livestock for food, and finally their land. They all became servants to
Pharaoh, but Joseph's family lived in the land of Goshen and had plenty of food.
