Genesis 41:54-57*

Taken broadly from R E Longacre, Joseph a story of divine providence, 2nd edition, Eisenbrauns, Indiana, 2003.

A. 54 And the seven years of dearth began to come, according as Joseph had said:and the dearth was in all lands;  but in all the land of Egypt there was bread.

B. 55 And when all the land of Egypt was famished, the people cried to Pharaoh for bread:

C. and Pharaoh said unto all the Egyptians,

D. Go unto Joseph; what he saith to you, do.

E. 56 And the famine was over all the face of the earth:

D’. And Joseph opened all the storehouses,

C’. and sold unto the Egyptians;

B’. and the famine waxed sore in the land of Egypt.

A’. 57 And all countries came into Egypt to Joseph for to buy corn; because that the famine was so sore in all lands.
