  • 英汉 创47:1 约瑟进去告诉法老说,我的父亲和我的弟兄带着羊群牛群,并一切所有的,从迦南地来了,如今在歌珊地。
    Joseph went and told Pharaoh, "My father and brothers, with their flocks and herds and everything they own, have come from the land of Canaan and are now in Goshen."
  • 英汉 创47:2 约瑟从他弟兄中挑出五个人来,引他们去见法老。
    He chose five of his brothers and presented them before Pharaoh.
  • 英汉 创47:3 法老问约瑟的弟兄说,你们以可事为业,他们对法老说,你仆人是牧羊的,连我们的祖宗也是牧羊的。
    Pharaoh asked the brothers, "What is your occupation?" "Your servants are shepherds," they replied to Pharaoh, "just as our fathers were."
  • 英汉 创47:4 他们又对法老说,迦南地的饥荒甚大,仆人的羊群没有草吃,所以我们来到这地寄居。现在求你容仆人住在歌珊地。
    They also said to him, "We have come to live here awhile, because the famine is severe in Canaan and your servants' flocks have no pasture. So now, please let your servants settle in Goshen."
  • 英汉 创47:5 法老对约瑟说,你父亲和你弟兄到你这里来了,
    Pharaoh said to Joseph, "Your father and your brothers have come to you,
  • 英汉 创47:6 埃及地都在你面前,只管叫你父亲和你弟兄住在国中最好的地。他们可以住在歌珊地。你若知道他们中间有什么能人,就派他们看管我的牲畜。
    and the land of Egypt is before you; settle your father and your brothers in the best part of the land. Let them live in Goshen. And if you know of any among them with special ability, put them in charge of my own livestock."
  • 英汉 创47:7 约瑟领他父亲雅各进到法老面前,雅各就给法老祝福。
    Then Joseph brought his father Jacob in and presented him before Pharaoh. After Jacob blessed Pharaoh,
  • 英汉 创47:8 法老问雅各说,你平生的年日是多少呢?
    Pharaoh asked him, "How old are you?"
  • 英汉 创47:9 雅各对法老说,我寄居在世的年日是一百三十岁,我平生的年日又少又苦,不及我列祖早在世寄居的年日。
    And Jacob said to Pharaoh, "The years of my pilgrimage are a hundred and thirty. My years have been few and difficult, and they do not equal the years of the pilgrimage of my fathers."
  • 英汉 创47:10 雅各又给法老祝福,就从法老面前出去了。
    Then Jacob blessed Pharaoh and went out from his presence.
  • 英汉 创47:11 约瑟遵着法老的命,把埃及国最好的地,就是兰塞境内的地,给他父亲和弟兄居住,作为产业。
    So Joseph settled his father and his brothers in Egypt and gave them property in the best part of the land, the district of Rameses, as Pharaoh directed.
  • 英汉 创47:12 约瑟用粮食奉养他父亲和他弟兄,并他父亲全家的眷属,都是照各家的人口奉养他们。
    Joseph also provided his father and his brothers and all his father's household with food, according to the number of their children.
  • 英汉 创47:13 饥荒甚大,全地都绝了粮,甚至埃及地和迦南地的人因那饥荒的缘故都饿昏了。
    There was no food, however, in the whole region because the famine was severe; both Egypt and Canaan wasted away because of the famine.
  • 英汉 创47:14 约瑟收聚了埃及地和迦南地所有的银子,就是众人籴粮的银子,约瑟就把那银子带到法老的宫里。
    Joseph collected all the money that was to be found in Egypt and Canaan in payment for the grain they were buying, and he brought it to Pharaoh's palace.
  • 英汉 创47:15 埃及地和迦南地的银子都花尽了,埃及众人都来见约瑟,说,我们的银子都用尽了,求你给我们粮食,我们为什么死在你面前呢?
    When the money of the people of Egypt and Canaan was gone, all Egypt came to Joseph and said, "Give us food. Why should we die before your eyes? Our money is used up."
  • 英汉 创47:16 约瑟说,若是银子用尽了,可以把你们的牲畜给我,我就为你们的牲畜给你们粮食。
    "Then bring your livestock," said Joseph. "I will sell you food in exchange for your livestock, since your money is gone."
  • 英汉 创47:17 于是他们把牲畜赶到约瑟那里,约瑟就拿粮食换了他们的牛,羊,驴,马。那一年因换他们一切的牲畜,就用粮食养活他们。
    So they brought their livestock to Joseph, and he gave them food in exchange for their horses, their sheep and goats, their cattle and donkeys. And he brought them through that year with food in exchange for all their livestock.
  • 英汉 创47:18 那一年过去,第二年他们又来见约瑟,说,我们不瞒我主,我们的银子都花尽了,牲畜也都归了我主。我们在我主眼前,除了我们的身体和田地之外,一无所剩。
    When that year was over, they came to him the following year and said, "We cannot hide from our lord the fact that since our money is gone and our livestock belongs to you, there is nothing left for our lord except our bodies and our land.
  • 英汉 创47:19 你何忍见我们人死地荒呢?求你用粮食买我们的我们的地,我们和我们的地就要给法老效力。又求你给我们种子,使我们得以存活,不至死亡,地土也不至荒凉。
    Why should we perish before your eyes--we and our land as well? Buy us and our land in exchange for food, and we with our land will be in bondage to Pharaoh. Give us seed so that we may live and not die, and that the land may not become desolate."
  • 英汉 创47:20 于是,约瑟为法老买了埃及所有的地,埃及人因被饥荒所迫,各都卖了自己的田地。那地就都归了法老。
    So Joseph bought all the land in Egypt for Pharaoh. The Egyptians, one and all, sold their fields, because the famine was too severe for them. The land became Pharaoh's,
  • 英汉 创47:21 至于百姓,约瑟叫他们,从埃及这边直到埃及那边,都各归各城。
    and Joseph reduced the people to servitude, from one end of Egypt to the other.
  • 英汉 创47:22 惟有祭司的地,约瑟没有买,因为祭司有从法老所得的常俸。他们吃法老所给的常俸,所以他们不卖自己的地。
    However, he did not buy the land of the priests, because they received a regular allotment from Pharaoh and had food enough from the allotment Pharaoh gave them. That is why they did not sell their land.
  • 英汉 创47:23 约瑟对百姓说,我今日为法老买了你们和你们的地,看哪,这里有种子给你们,你们可以种地。
    Joseph said to the people, "Now that I have bought you and your land today for Pharaoh, here is seed for you so you can plant the ground.
  • 英汉 创47:24 后来打粮食的时候,你们要把五分之一纳给法老,四分可以归你们作地里的种子,也作你们和你们家口孩童的食物。
    But when the crop comes in, give a fifth of it to Pharaoh. The other four-fifths you may keep as seed for the fields and as food for yourselves and your households and your children."
  • 英汉 创47:25 他们说,你救了我们的性命。但愿我们在我主眼前蒙恩,我们就作法老的仆人。
    "You have saved our lives," they said. "May we find favor in the eyes of our lord; we will be in bondage to Pharaoh."
  • 英汉 创47:26 于是约瑟为埃及地定下常例,直到今日,法老必得五分之一,惟独祭司的地不归法老。
    So Joseph established it as a law concerning land in Egypt--still in force today--that a fifth of the produce belongs to Pharaoh. It was only the land of the priests that did not become Pharaoh's.
  • 英汉 创47:27 以色列人住在埃及的歌珊地。他们在那里置了产业,并且生育甚多。
    Now the Israelites settled in Egypt in the region of Goshen. They acquired property there and were fruitful and increased greatly in number.
  • 英汉 创47:28 雅各住在埃及地十七年,雅各平生的年日是一百四十七岁。
    Jacob lived in Egypt seventeen years, and the years of his life were a hundred and forty-seven.
  • 英汉 创47:29 以色列的死期临近了,他就叫了他儿子约瑟来,说,我若在你眼前蒙恩,请你把手放在我大腿底下,用慈爱和诚实待我,请你不要将我葬在埃及。
    When the time drew near for Israel to die, he called for his son Joseph and said to him, "If I have found favor in your eyes, put your hand under my thigh and promise that you will show me kindness and faithfulness. Do not bury me in Egypt,
  • 英汉 创47:30 我与我祖我父同睡的时候,你要将我带出埃及,葬在他们所葬的地方。约瑟说,我必遵着你的命而行。
    but when I rest with my fathers, carry me out of Egypt and bury me where they are buried." "I will do as you say," he said.
  • 英汉 创47:31 雅各说,你要向我起誓。约瑟就向他起了誓,于是以色列在床头上(或作扶着杖头)敬拜神。
    "Swear to me," he said. Then Joseph swore to him, and Israel worshiped as he leaned on the top of his staff.
