Genesis 47:10-12 New English Translation (NET Bible)

10 Then Jacob blessed Pharaoh and went out from his presence.[a]

11 So Joseph settled his father and his brothers. He gave them territory[b] in the land of Egypt, in the best region of the land, the land of Rameses,[c] just as Pharaoh had commanded. 12 Joseph also provided food for his father, his brothers, and all his father’s household, according to the number of their little children.

Footnotes:

  1. Genesis 47:10 tn Heb “from before Pharaoh.”
  2. Genesis 47:11 tn Heb “a possession,” or “a holding.” Joseph gave them a plot of land with rights of ownership in the land of Goshen.
  3. Genesis 47:11 sn The land of Rameses is another designation for the region of Goshen. It is named Rameses because of a city in that region (Exod 1:11; 12:37). The use of this name may represent a modernization of the text for the understanding of the intended readers, substituting a later name for an earlier one. Alternatively, there may have been an earlier Rameses for which the region was named.
