Genesis 47:24-26 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

24 And of the increase ye shall give the fifth part unto Pharaoh, and four parts shall be yours for seed of the field, and for your meat, and for them of your households, and for your children to eat.

25 Then they answered, Thou hast saved our lives: let us find grace in the sight of my lord, and we will be Pharaoh’s servants.

26 Then Joseph made it a law over the land of Egypt unto this day, that Pharaoh should have the fifth part, [a]except the land of the Priests only, which was not Pharaoh’s.


  1. Genesis 47:26 Pharaoh in providing for Idolatrous priests, shall be a condemnation to all them which neglect the true ministers of God’s word.
