    SEV Biblia, Chapter 47:20

    Entonces comprˇ JosÚ toda la tierra de Egipto para el Faraˇn; porque los egipcios vendieron cada uno sus tierras, porque se agravˇ el hambre sobre ellos; y la tierra vino a ser del Faraˇn.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 13-26 - Care being taken of
    Jacob and his family, which mercy was especiall designed by Providence in Joseph's advancement, an account is given of the saving the kingdom of Egypt from ruin. There was no bread, and the people were ready to die. See how we depend upon God's providence. All our wealth would not keep us from starving, if rain were withheld for two or three years. See how much we are at God's mercy, and let us kee ourselves always in his love. Also see how much we smart by our ow want of care. If all the Egyptians had laid up corn for themselves in the seven years of plenty, they had not been in these straits; but the regarded not the warning. Silver and gold would not feed them: the must have corn. All that a man hath will he give for his life. We cannot judge this matter by modern rules. It is plain that the Egyptians regarded Joseph as a public benefactor. The whole i consistent with Joseph's character, acting between Pharaoh and his subjects, in the fear of God. The Egyptians confessed concernin Joseph, Thou hast saved our lives. What multitudes will gratefully say to Jesus, at the last day, Thou hast saved our souls from the mos tremendous destruction, and in the season of uttermost distress! The Egyptians parted with all their property, and even their liberty, for the saving of their lives: can it then be too much for us to count all but loss, and part with all, at His command, and for His sake, who wil both save our souls, and give us an hundredfold, even here, in thi present world? Surely if saved by Christ, we shall be willing to becom his servants.
