Acts 7:1-21
1. Then said the chief priest: is it even so?
2. And he said: ye men, brethren, and fathers, hearken to. The God of glory appeared unto our father Abraham while he was yet in Mesopotamia, before he dwelt in Charran,
3. and said unto him: come out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and come into the land which I shall shew unto thee.
4. Then came he out of the land of Caldey,(Chaldey) and dwelt in Charran. And after that as soon as his father was dead, he brought him into this land, wherein(in which) ye now dwell,
5. and he gave him none inheritance in it, no not one foot of ground.(the breadth of a foot.) And(:but) promised that he would give it to him (to possess) and to his seed after him, when as yet he had no child.
6. God verily spake on this wise, thy(that this) seed shall(should) be a dweller(stranger) in a strange land, and (that) they shall put(should keep) them in bondage, and entreat them evil four hundred years.
7. And(But) the nation to whom they shall be in bondage, will I judge (said God) and after that shall they come forth, and serve me in this place.

10. and delivered him out of all his adversities,(troubles) and gave him favour and wisdom in the sight of Pharaoh king of Egypt; And Pharaoh(which) made him governor over Egypt, and over all his household.
11. Then came there a dearth over all the land of Egypt, and Canaan, and great affliction,(trouble) that our fathers found no sustenance.
12. (But) When Jacob heard that there was corn in Egypt, he sent our fathers first,
13. and when he had sent them the(at) second time, Joseph was known of his brethren, and Joseph's kindred was made known unto Pharaoh.
14. Then sent Joseph and caused his father to be brought and all his kin, three score and fifteen souls.
15. And Jacob descended into Egypt, and died both he and our fathers,
16. and were translated into(brought over unto) Sichem, and were put in the sepulchre that Abraham bought for money of the sons of Emor, at Sichem.
17. When the time of the promise drew nigh (which God had promised with an oath(sworn) to Abraham) the people grew and multiplied in Egypt
18. till another king arose which knew not of Joseph.
19. The same dealt subtly with our kindred, and evil intreated our fathers, and made them to cast out their(young) children, that they should not remain alive.
