28 Then he sent Judah before him to Joseph, k to point out before him the way to Goshen. And they came l to the land of Goshen. 29 So Joseph made ready his m chariot and went up to Goshen to meet his father Israel; and he presented himself to him, and n fell on his neck and wept on his neck a good while. 30 And Israel said to Joseph, o "Now let me die, since I have seen your face, because you are still alive." 31 Then Joseph said to his brothers and to his father's household, p "I will go up and tell Pharaoh, and say to him, 'My brothers and those of my father's house, who were in the land of Canaan, have come to me. 32 'And the men are q shepherds, for their occupation has been to feed livestock; and they have brought their flocks, their herds, and all that they have.' 33 "So it shall be, when Pharaoh calls you and says, r 'What is your occupation?' 34 "that you shall say, 'Your servants' s occupation has been with livestock t from our youth even till now, both we and also our fathers,' that you may dwell in the land of Goshen; for every shepherd is u an 1 abomination to the Egyptians."New King James Version (NKJV) Copyright © 1982 by Thomas Nelson, Inc.
