the best of the land of Egypt

“God will be with you, and bring you back to the land of your fathers.” -genesis 48:21

“and do not concern yourselves with goods, for the best of all the land of Egypt is yours.” -genesis 45:20

in these weeks of downsizing and sorting, selling and packing, this is a blessed comfort.  in another translation’s phrasing — “do not let your eye look with regret upon your vessels.”

my eyes must be fastened on Him, “the God who has been my shepherd all my life to this day.” -genesis 48:15b
