45:1Ioseph coulde no longer refrayne before all the that stoode by hym, wherefore he cryed: cause euery man to auoyde. And there remayned no man with him, whyle Ioseph vttered hym selfe vnto his brethren
45:2And he wept aloude, and the Egyptians, and the house of Pharao heard
45:3And Ioseph sayde vnto his brethren: I am Ioseph, doth my father yet lyue? And his brethren could not aunswere him, they were so abashed at his presence
45:4And Ioseph sayde vnto his brethren, come neare to me I pray you. And they came neare. And he said, I am Ioseph your brother who ye solde into Egypt
45:5Nowe therefore be not greeued herewith, neither let it seeme a cruel thing in your eyes, that ye solde me hyther: for God did sende me before you to preserue lyfe

45:10And thou shalt dwell in the land of Gosen and be a neyghbour vnto me, thou, & thy chyldren, and thy chyldrens children, thy sheepe, and thy beastes, and all that thou hast
45:11And there wyll I prouide thee sustenaunce (for there remaine yet fiue yeres of dearth) lest thou and thy housholde, & all that thou hast come to pouertie
45:12And beholde your eyes do see, and the eyes also of my brother Beniamin, that mine own mouth speaketh vnto you
45:13Therfore tell my father of all my glorie in Egypt, and of all that you haue seene, and make hast, and bryng my father hyther
45:14And he fel on his brother Beniamins necke, and wept: and Beniamin wept on his necke
45:15Moreouer he kissed al his brethren, and wept vpon them: and after that, his brethren talked with him
45:16And the fame thereof was hearde in Pharaos house, so that they sayde: Iosephes brethre are come. And it pleased Pharao well, and all his seruauntes
45:17And Pharao spake vnto Ioseph: say vnto thy brethren, this do ye: lade your beastes, and go and returne vnto the lande of Chanaan
45:18Take your father, and your housesholdes, and come vnto me, and I wyll geue you the good of the land of Egypt, and ye shall eate the fat of the lande
45:19And thou also shalt comaunde them this do ye: take charets with you out of the lande of Egypt for your chyldren, and for your wyues, and bryng your father, and come
45:20Also regarde not your stuffe, for the good of all the lande of Egypt is yours
45:21And the children of Israel dyd euen so: and Ioseph gaue them charettes, accordyng to the commaundement of Pharao, and gaue them vitayle also to spende by the way
45:22And he gaue vnto eche of the chaunge of raiment: but vnto Beniamin he gaue three hundred peeces of siluer, and fiue chaunge of rayment
45:23And vnto his father he sent after the same maner ten asses laden with good out of Egypt, and ten she asses laden with corne, & bread, and meate, for his father by the way

45:27And they tolde hym all the wordes of Ioseph, whiche he had said vnto them: And when he sawe the charets whiche Ioseph had sent to cary him, the spirite of Iacob their father reuiued
45:28And Israel saide: I haue inough, that Ioseph my sonne is yet alyue: I will go, and see him, yer that I dye

Bishops Bible 1568

The Bishops' Bible was produced under the authority of the established Church of England in 1568. It was substantially revised in 1572, and the 1602 edition was prescribed as the base text for the King James Bible completed in 1611. The thorough Calvinism of the Geneva Bible offended the Church of England, to which almost all of its bishops subscribed. They associated Calvinism with Presbyterianism, which sought to replace government of the church by bishops with government by lay elders. However, they were aware that the Great Bible of 1539 , which was the only version then legally authorized for use in Anglican worship, was severely deficient, in that much of the Old Testament and Apocrypha was translated from the Latin Vulgate, rather than from the original Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek. In an attempt to replace the objectionable Geneva translation, they circulated one of their own, which became known as the Bishops' Bible.
