    1 Joseph presents his father, and five of his brethren before Pharaoh. 11 He gives them habitation and maintenance. 13 He gets the Egyptians' money; 16 their cattle; 18 and their lands, except the priests', to Pharaoh. 23 He restores the land for a fifth. 28 Jacob's age. 29 He swears Joseph to bury him with his fathers.

This was the wisest measure that could be adopted, both for the preservation of the people and the cattle. As the people had not grain for their own sustenance, consequently they could have none for their cattle: hence they were in the most imminent danger of starving; and the people also were in equal danger; as they must have divided a portion of that bought for themselves with the cattle, which, for the sake of tillage, etc., they wished of course to preserve till the seven years' famine should end. * Da 6:5-7 Pr 12:17 1Co 10:32 Php 4:8 Col 4:5 VERSE 17 - for horses. * Ex 9:3 1Ki 10:28 Job 2:4 Isa 31:1 Mt 6:24 - fed them.

See on ver. * :23 VERSE 20 VERSE 21 - A.M. 2303. B.C. 1701. - And as. It is highly probable, that Joseph was influenced by no political motive in removing the people to the cities, but merely by motives of prudence and humanity; for, as the corn was laid up in the cities, it would be more eligible to bring then from distant towns and villages to places where they might be more conveniently supplied with food. - to cities. * Ge 41:48 VERSE 22 - of the priests. or, princes. * Ge 14:18; 41:45,50 *marg: * 2Sa 8:18 - for the priests. * De 12:19 Jos 21:1-45 Ezr 7:24 Ne 13:10 Mt 10:10 1Co 9:13 * Ga 6:6 2Th 3:10 1Ti 5:17 VERSE 23 - bought. * :19 - here is seed. * Ge 41:27; 45:6 Ps 41:1; 107:36,37; 112:5 Pr 11:26; 12:11; 13:23 * Ec 11:6 Isa 28:24,25; 55:10 Mt 24:45 2Co 9:10 VERSE 24 - the fifth part. * :25; 41:34 Le 27:32 1Sa 8:15-17 Ps 41:1; 112:5 VERSE 25 - Thou hast. * Ge 6:19; 41:45 *marg: * Ge 45:6-8; 50:20 Pr 11:26,27 - let us. * Ge 18:3; 33:15 Ru 2:13 VERSE 26 - made it a law. From this history, and from Diodorus Siculus (lib. i.), we learn that the land of Egypt was divided into three parts: one belonged to the Priests, (ver. 22, 26;) a second was the king's, (which appears to have been the land of Rameses, or Goshen, ver. 11;) the remainder was the subjects'. Now Joseph, having purchased the land of the people (ver. 19, 20), restored it, on the condition of their paying a fifth part of the produce to the king, beyond which he appears to have made no demand. - except. * :22 Eze 7:24 - priests. or, princes.

As {shachah,} which primarily signifies to bow, denotes also to worship; and as {mittah,} a bed, pronounced {matteh,} is a staff; the LXX. have taken the passage in the latter sense, and rendered it [ ,] "and Israel worshipped upon the top of his staff," which is literally copied by the apostle Paul, in his Epistle to the Hebrews. The present reading is, however, supported by the Masoretic pointing and the Targums; and is most probably correct, as it would appear that Jacob was confined to his bed. - See on ver. * :29; 24:26; 48:1,2 1Ki 1:47 Heb 11:21 GOTO NEXT CHAPTER - TREASURY OF SCRIPTURE KNOWLEDGE INDEX
