Joseph now becomes the chief banker and controls the money supply in all the land.
And while under his control the banking system crashes and this becomes the first recorded banking “crash” leading
into a great depression akin to the depression in the US during the late 20’s. Before the crash Joseph controlled the
agricultural lands in Egypt but not the livestock that grazed upon it. Now because of this crash he convinces the Israelites
to sell their livestock and the land in which they lived in Canaan to the Pharaoh. In exchange they were to pay a percentage
of what they produced to the Pharaoh.
(Gen 47:14 KJV) And
Joseph gathered up all the money that was found in the land of Egypt, and in the land of Canaan, for the corn which they bought:
and Joseph brought the money into Pharaoh's house.
(Gen 47:15 KJV) And
when money failed in the land of Egypt, and in the land of Canaan, all the Egyptians came unto Joseph, and said, Give us bread:
for why should we die in thy presence? for the money faileth.
(Gen 47:16 KJV) And
Joseph said, Give your cattle; and I will give you for your cattle, if money fail.
47:17 KJV) And they brought their cattle unto Joseph: and Joseph gave them bread in exchange for horses, and for the
flocks, and for the cattle of the herds, and for the asses: and he fed them with bread for all their cattle for that year.
(Gen 47:18 KJV) When that year was ended, they came unto him the second year, and said
unto him, We will not hide it from my lord, how that our money is spent; my lord also hath our herds of cattle; there is not
ought left in the sight of my lord, but our bodies, and our lands:
47:19 KJV) Wherefore shall we die before thine eyes, both we and our land? buy us and our land for bread, and we and
our land will be servants unto Pharaoh: and give us seed, that we may live, and not die, that the land be not desolate.
(Gen 47:20 KJV) And Joseph bought all the land of Egypt for Pharaoh; for the Egyptians
sold every man his field, because the famine prevailed over them: so the land became Pharaoh's.
(Gen 47:21 KJV) And
as for the people, he removed them to cities from one end of the borders of Egypt even to the other end thereof.
(Gen 47:22 KJV) Only the land of the priests bought he not; for the priests had a portion
assigned them of Pharaoh, and did eat their portion which Pharaoh gave them: wherefore they sold not their lands.
(Gen 47:23 KJV) Then Joseph said unto the people, Behold, I have bought you this day and
your land for Pharaoh: lo, here is seed for you, and ye shall sow the land.
(Gen 47:25 KJV) And they said, Thou hast saved our lives: let
us find grace in the sight of my lord, and we will be Pharaoh's servants.
47:26 KJV) And Joseph made it a law over the land of Egypt unto this day, that Pharaoh should have the fifth part; except
the land of the priests only, which became not Pharaoh's.
(Gen 47:27 KJV) And Israel dwelt in the land of Egypt, in the
country of Goshen; and they had possessions therein, and grew, and multiplied exceedingly.
(Gen 47:28 KJV) And Jacob lived in the land of Egypt seventeen years: so the whole age
of Jacob was an hundred forty and seven years.
(Gen 50:22 KJV) And Joseph dwelt in Egypt, he, and his father's house: and
Joseph lived an hundred and ten years.
(Gen 50:26 KJV) So Joseph died, being an hundred and ten years old: and they
embalmed him, and he was put in a coffin in Egypt.
(Exo 1:6 KJV) And Joseph died, and all his brethren, and all that generation.
(Exo 1:7 KJV)
And the children of Israel were fruitful, and increased abundantly, and multiplied, and waxed exceeding mighty; and
the land was filled with them
And it came to pass in those days, when Moses was grown, that he went out to
his brothers, and looked on their burdens: and he spied an Egyptian smiting an Hebrew, one of his brothers.
And he looked this way and that way, and when he saw that there was no man, he slew the Egyptian, and hid
him in the sand. And when he went out the second day, behold, two men of the Hebrews strove together: and he said to him that
did the wrong, Why smite you your fellow?
Now when Pharaoh heard this thing, he sought to slay Moses.
But Moses fled from the face of Pharaoh, and dwelled in the land of Midian: and he sat down by a well.
