47:6 The land of Egypt is before you; settle your father and your brothers in the best region of the land. They may live in the land of Goshen. If you know of any highly capable men 2 among them, put them in charge 3 of my livestock.”
1 tn Heb “In the [place that is] good in your eyes live!”
2 tn Heb “men of skill.”
