Genesis 45:1-28
1. Joseph could no longer control himself in the presence of all his attendants, so he cried out, "Have everyone withdraw from me!" Thus no one else was about when he made himself known to his brothers.
2. But his sobs were so loud that the Egyptians heard him, and so the news reached Pharaoh's palace.
3. "I am Joseph," he said to his brothers. "Is my father still in good health?" But his brothers could give him no answer, so dumbfounded were they at him.
4. "Come closer to me," he told his brothers. When they had done so, he said: "I am your brother Joseph, whom you once sold into Egypt.
5. But now do not be distressed, and do not reproach yourselves for having sold me here. It was really for the sake of saving lives that God sent me here ahead of you.
6. For two years now the famine has been in the land, and for five more years tillage will yield no harvest.
7. God, therefore, sent me on ahead of you to ensure for you a remnant on earth and to save your lives in an extraordinary deliverance.
8. So it was not really you but God who had me come here; and he has made of me a father to Pharaoh, lord of all his household, and ruler over the whole land of Egypt.
9. "Hurry back, then, to my father and tell him: 'Thus says your son Joseph: God has made me lord of all Egypt; come to me without delay.
10. You will settle in the region of Goshen, where you will be near me-- you and your children and grandchildren, your flocks and herds, and everything that you own.
11. Since five years of famine still lie ahead, I will provide for you there, so that you and your family and all that are yours may not suffer want.'
12. Surely, you can see for yourselves, and Benjamin can see for himself, that it is I, Joseph, who am speaking to you.
13. Tell my father all about my high position in Egypt and what you have seen. But hurry and bring my father down here."
14. Thereupon he flung himself on the neck of his brother Benjamin and wept, and Benjamin wept in his arms.
15. Joseph then kissed all his brothers, crying over each of them; and only then were his brothers able to talk with him.
16. When the news reached Pharaoh's palace that Joseph's brothers had come, Pharaoh and his courtiers were pleased.
17. So Pharaoh told Joseph: "Say to your brothers: 'This is what you shall do: Load up your animals and go without delay to the land of Canaan.
18. There get your father and your families, and then come back here to me; I will assign you the best land in Egypt, where you will live off the fat of the land.'
19. Instruct them further: 'Do this. Take wagons from the land of Egypt for your children and your wives and to transport your father on your way back here.
20. Do not be concerned about your belongings, for the best in the whole land of Egypt shall be yours.'"
21. The sons of Israel acted accordingly. Joseph gave them the wagons, as Pharaoh had ordered, and he supplied them with provisions for the journey.
22. He also gave to each of them fresh clothing, but to Benjamin he gave three hundred shekels of silver and five sets of garments.
23. Moreover, what he sent to his father was ten jackasses loaded with the finest products of Egypt and ten jennies loaded with grain and bread and other provisions for his journey.
24. As he sent his brothers on their way, he told them, "Let there be no recriminations on the way."
25. So they left Egypt and made their way to their father Jacob in the land of Canaan.
26. When they told him, "Joseph is still alive-- in fact, it is he who is ruler of all the land of Egypt," he was dumbfounded; he could not believe them.
27. But when they recounted to him all that Joseph had told them, and when he saw the wagons that Joseph had sent for his transport, the spirit of their father Jacob revived.
28. "It is enough," said Israel. "My son Joseph is still alive! I must go and see him before I die."

Genesis 46:1-34
1. Israel set out with all that was his. When he arrived at Beer-sheba, he offered sacrifices to the God of his father Isaac.
2. There God, speaking to Israel in a vision by night, called, "Jacob! Jacob!" "Here I am," he answered.
3. Then he said: "I am God, the God of your father. Do not be afraid to go down to Egypt, for there I will make you a great nation.
4. Not only will I go down to Egypt with you; I will also bring you back here, after Joseph has closed your eyes."
5. So Jacob departed from Beer-sheba, and the sons of Israel put their father and their wives and children on the wagons that Pharaoh had sent for his transport.
6. They took with them their livestock and the possessions they had acquired in the land of Canaan. Thus Jacob and all his descendants migrated to Egypt.
7. His sons and his grandsons, his daughters and his granddaughters-- all his descendants-- he took with him to Egypt.
8. These are the names of the Israelites, Jacob and his descendants, who migrated to Egypt. Reuben, Jacob's first-born,
9. and the sons of Reuben: Hanoch, Pallu, Hezron, and Carmi.
10. The sons of Simeon: Nemuel, Jamin, Ohad, Jachin, Zohar, and Shaul, son of a Canaanite woman.
11. The sons of Levi: Gershon, Kohath, and Merari.
12. The sons of Judah: Er, Onan, Shelah, Perez, and Zerah-- but Er and Onan had died in the land of Canaan; and the sons of Perez were Hezron and Hamul.
13. The sons of Issachar: Tola, Puah, Jashub, and Shimron.
14. The sons of Zebulun: Sered, Elon, and Jahleel.
15. These were the sons whom Leah bore to Jacob in Paddan-aram, along with his daughter Dinah-- thirty-three persons in all, male and female.
16. The sons of Gad: Zephon, Haggi, Shuni, Ezbon, Eri, Arod, and Areli.
17. The sons of Asher: Imnah, Ishvah, Ishvi, and Beriah, with their sister Serah; and the sons of Beriah: Heber and Malchiel.
18. These were the descendants of Zilpah, whom Laban had given to his daughter Leah; these she bore to Jacob-- sixteen persons in all.
19. The sons of Jacob's wife Rachel: Joseph and Benjamin.
20. In the land of Egypt Joseph became the father of Manasseh and Ephraim, whom Asenath, daughter of Potiphera, priest of Heliopolis, bore to him.
21. The sons of Benjamin: Bela, Becher, Ashbel, Gera, Naaman, Ahiram, Shupham, Hupham, and Ard.
22. These were the sons whom Rachel bore to Jacob-- fourteen persons in all.
23. The sons of Dan: Hushim.
24. The sons of Naphtali: Jahzeel, Guni, Jezer, and Shillem.
25. These were the sons of Bilhah, whom Laban had given to his daughter Rachel; these she bore to Jacob-- seven persons in all.
26. Jacob's people who migrated to Egypt-- his direct descendants, not counting the wives of Jacob's sons-- numbered sixty-six persons in all.
27. Together with Joseph's sons who were born to him in Egypt-- two persons-- all the people comprising Jacob's family who had come to Egypt amounted to seventy persons in all.
28. Israel had sent Judah ahead to Joseph, so that he might meet him in Goshen. On his arrival in the region of Goshen,
29. Joseph hitched the horses to his chariot and rode to meet his father Israel in Goshen. As soon as he saw him, he flung himself on his neck and wept a long time in his arms.
30. And Israel said to Joseph, "At last I can die, now that I have seen for myself that Joseph is still alive."
31. Joseph then said to his brothers and his father's household: "I will go and inform Pharaoh, telling him: 'My brothers and my father's household, whose home is in the land of Canaan, have come to me.
32. The men are shepherds, having long been keepers of livestock; and they have brought with them their flocks and herds, as well as everything else they own.'
33. So when Pharaoh summons you and asks what your occupation is,
34. you must answer, 'We your servants, like our ancestors, have been keepers of livestock from the beginning until now,' in order that you may stay in the region of Goshen, since all shepherds are abhorrent to the Egyptians."

Psalms 12:1-8
1. For the leader; "upon the eighth." A psalm of David.
2. Help, LORD, for no one loyal remains; the faithful have vanished from the human race
3. Those who tell lies to one another speak with deceiving lips and a double heart.
4. May the LORD cut off all deceiving lips, and every boastful tongue,
5. Those who say, "By our tongues we prevail; when our lips speak, who can lord it over us?"
6. "Because they rob the weak, and the needy groan, I will now arise," says the LORD; "I will grant safety to whoever longs for it."
7. The promises of the LORD are sure, silver refined in a crucible, silver purified seven times.
8. LORD, protect us always; preserve us from this generation.

Proverbs 4:14-17
14. The path of the wicked enter not, walk not on the way of evil men;
15. Shun it, cross it not, turn aside from it, and pass on.
16. For they cannot rest unless they have done evil; to have made no one stumble steals away their sleep.
17. For they eat the bread of wickedness and drink the wine of violence.

Matthew 15:1-20
1. Then Pharisees and scribes came to Jesus from Jerusalem and said,
2. "Why do your disciples break the tradition of the elders? They do not wash (their) hands when they eat a meal."
3. He said to them in reply, "And why do you break the commandment of God for the sake of your tradition?
4. For God said, 'Honor your father and your mother,' and 'Whoever curses father or mother shall die.'
5. But you say, 'Whoever says to father or mother, "Any support you might have had from me is dedicated to God,"
6. need not honor his father.' You have nullified the word of God for the sake of your tradition.
7. Hypocrites, well did Isaiah prophesy about you when he said:
8. 'This people honors me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me;
9. in vain do they worship me, teaching as doctrines human precepts.'"
10. He summoned the crowd and said to them, "Hear and understand.
11. It is not what enters one's mouth that defiles that person; but what comes out of the mouth is what defiles one."
12. Then his disciples approached and said to him, "Do you know that the Pharisees took offense when they heard what you said?"
13. He said in reply, "Every plant that my heavenly Father has not planted will be uprooted.
14. Let them alone; they are blind guides (of the blind). If a blind person leads a blind person, both will fall into a pit."
15. Then Peter said to him in reply, "Explain (this) parable to us."
16. He said to them, "Are even you still without understanding?
17. Do you not realize that everything that enters the mouth passes into the stomach and is expelled into the latrine?
18. But the things that come out of the mouth come from the heart, and they defile.
19. For from the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, unchastity, theft, false witness, blasphemy.
20. These are what defile a person, but to eat with unwashed hands does not defile."
