Acts 7:9-18

9“The patriarchs, jealous of Joseph, sold him into Egypt; but God was with him,10and rescued him from all his afflictions, and enabled him to win favor and to show wisdom when he stood before Pharaoh, king of Egypt, who appointed him ruler over Egypt and over all his household.11Now there came a famine throughout Egypt and Canaan, and great suffering, and our ancestors could find no food.12But when Jacob heard that there was grain in Egypt, he sent our ancestors there on their first visit.13On the second visit Joseph made himself known to his brothers, and Joseph's family became known to Pharaoh.14Then Joseph sent and invited his father Jacob and all his relatives to come to him, seventy-five in all;15so Jacob went down to Egypt. He himself died there as well as our ancestors,16and their bodies were brought back to Shechem and laid in the tomb that Abraham had bought for a sum of silver from the sons of Hamor in Shechem.17“But as the time drew near for the fulfillment of the promise that God had made to Abraham, our people in Egypt increased and multiplied18until another king who had not known Joseph ruled over Egypt.
