45:1 Then Joseph couldn`t control himself before all those who stood before him, and he cried, "Cause every man to go out from me!" There stood no man with him, while Joseph made himself known to his brothers.
45:2 He wept aloud. The Egyptians heard, and the house of Pharaoh heard.
45:3 Joseph said to his brothers, "I am Joseph! Does my father still live?" His brothers couldn`t answer him; for they were terrified at his presence.
45:4 Joseph said to his brothers, "Come near to me, please." They came near. "He said, I am Joseph, your brother, whom you sold into Egypt.
45:6 For these two years has the famine been in the land, and there are yet five years, in which there will be neither plowing nor harvest.
45:7 God sent me before you to preserve you a remnant in the earth, and to save you alive by a great deliverance.
45:9 Hurry, and go up to my father, and tell him, `This is what your son Joseph says, "God has made me lord of all Egypt. Come down to me. Don`t wait.
45:11 There I will nourish you; for there are yet five years of famine; lest you come to poverty, you, and your household, and all that you have."`

45:15 He kissed all his brothers, and wept on them. After that his brothers talked with him.

45:21 The sons of Israel did so. Joseph gave them wagons, according to the commandment of Pharaoh, and gave them provision for the way.
45:23 To his father, he sent after this manner: ten donkeys laden with the good things of Egypt, and ten she-asses laden with grain and bread and provision for his father by the way.
45:24 So he sent his brothers away, and they departed. He said to them, "See that you don`t quarrel on the way."
45:25 They went up out of Egypt, and came into the land of Canaan, to Jacob their father.
45:28 Israel said, "It is enough. Joseph my son is still alive. I will go and see him before I die.
