JOSEPH PRESENTS HIS FATHER AND BRETHREN TO PHARAOH.

(1) Behold, they are in the land of Goshen.--Though Joseph had all along wished this to be the dwelling-place of his brethren, yet it was necessary to obtain Pharaoh's permission; and at present Joseph only mentions that they had halted there. In Genesis 47:4 they ask for the necessary consent.

Verse 1. - Then Joseph came - literally, and Joseph went, up to the royal presence, as he had proposed (Genesis 46:31) - and told Pharaoh, and said, My father and my brethren, and their flocks, and their herds, and all that they have, are come cut of the land of Canaan; - as thou didst desire (Genesis 45:17, 18) - and, behold, they are in the land of Goshen (vide Genesis 45:10).
