And Israel said unto Joseph, Now let me die, since I have seen thy face, because thou art yet alive.
46:28–47:31 Through Joseph’s wisdom God preserved Israel in Goshen, both physically, by providing food and land, and spiritually, by providing for their isolation from the pagan Egyptians until the Exodus. Under Jacob’s blessing on Pharaoh and Pharaoh’s honoring of Israel everyone prospered: Pharaoh gained control of all the property and people in Egypt, the Egyptians hailed Joseph as a savior, and Israel prospered even more than the Egyptians. This mutual blessing and prosperity contrasts with the situation four hundred years later when another pharaoh cursed Israel and was cursed.
