Genesis 47:24-26 GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)

24 Every time you harvest, give one-fifth of the produce to Pharaoh. Four-fifths will be yours to use as seed for your fields and as food for your households.”

25 “You have saved our lives,” they said. “Please, sir, we are willing to be Pharaoh’s slaves.”

26 Joseph made a law concerning the land in Egypt which is still in force today: One-fifth of the produce belongs to Pharaoh. Only the land of the priests didn’t belong to Pharaoh.
