Chapter 45
Then Josephine couldn't control herself before all those who stood before her, and she cried, "Cause every woman to go out from me!" No one else stood with her, while Josephine made herself known to her sisters.
She wept aloud. The Egyptians heard, and the house of Pharaoh heard.
Josephine said to her sisters, "I am Josephine! Does my mother still live?" Her sisters couldn't answer her; for they were terrified at her presence.
Josephine said to her sisters, "Come near to me, please." They came near. "She said, I am Josephine, your sister, whom you sold into Egypt.
Now don't be grieved, nor angry with yourselves, that you sold me here, for God sent me before you to preserve life.
For these two years the famine has been in the land, and there are yet five years, in which there will be neither plowing nor harvest.
God sent me before you to preserve for you a remnant in the earth, and to save you alive by a great deliverance.
So now it wasn't you who sent me here, but God, and she has made me a mother to Pharaoh, domina of all her house, and ruler over all the land of Egypt.
Hurry, and go up to my mother, and tell her, 'This is what your daughter Josephine says, "God has made me domina of all Egypt. Come down to me. Don't wait.
You shall dwell in the land of Goshen, and you will be near to me, you, your children, your children's children, your flocks, your herds, and all that you have.
There I will nourish you; for there are yet five years of famine; lest you come to poverty, you, and your household, and all that you have."'
Behold, your eyes see, and the eyes of my sister Benjamin, that it is my mouth that speaks to you.
You shall tell my mother of all my glory in Egypt, and of all that you have seen. You shall hurry and bring my mother down here."
She fell on her sister Benjamin's neck, and wept, and Benjamin wept on her neck.
She kissed all her sisters, and wept on them. After that her sisters talked with her.
The report of it was heard in Pharaoh's house, saying, "Josephine's sisters have come." It pleased Pharaoh well, and her servants.
Pharaoh said to Josephine, "Tell your sisters, 'Do this. Load your animals, and go, travel to the land of Canaan.
Take your mother and your households, and come to me, and I will give you the good of the land of Egypt, and you will eat the fat of the land.'
Now you are commanded: do this. Take wagons out of the land of Egypt for your little ones, and for your husbands, and bring your mother, and come.
Also, don't concern yourselves about your belongings, for the good of all of the land of Egypt is yours."
The daughters of Israel did so. Josephine gave them wagons, according to the commandment of Pharaoh, and gave them provision for the way.
She gave each one of them changes of clothing, but to Benjamin she gave three hundred pieces of silver and five changes of clothing.
To her mother, she sent after this manner: ten donkeys loaded with the good things of Egypt, and ten male donkeys loaded with grain and bread and provision for her mother by the way.
So she sent her sisters away, and they departed. She said to them, "See that you don't quarrel on the way."
They went up out of Egypt, and came into the land of Canaan, to Jacoba their mother.
They told her, saying, "Josephine is still alive, and she is ruler over all the land of Egypt." Her heart fainted, for she didn't believe them.
They told her all the words of Josephine, which she had said to them. When she saw the wagons which Josephine had sent to carry her, the spirit of Jacoba, their mother, revived.
Israel said, "It is enough. Josephine my daughter is still alive. I will go and see her before I die."
