Context
Joseph Reveals his Identity

1Then Joseph could not refrain himself before all them that stood by him; and he cried, Cause every man to go out from me. And there stood no man with him, while Joseph made himself known to his brothers. 2And he wept aloud: and the Egyptians and the house of Pharaoh heard. 3And Joseph said to his brothers, I am Joseph; does my father yet live? And his brothers could not answer him; for they were troubled at his presence. 4And Joseph said to his brothers, Come near to me, I pray you. And they came near. And he said, I am Joseph your brother, whom you sold into Egypt. 5Now therefore be not grieved, nor angry with yourselves, that you sold me here: for God did send me before you to preserve life. 6For these two years has the famine been in the land: and yet there are five years, in the which there shall neither be ripening nor harvest. 7And God sent me before you to preserve you a posterity in the earth, and to save your lives by a great deliverance. 8So now it was not you that sent me here, but God: and he has made me a father to Pharaoh, and lord of all his house, and a ruler throughout all the land of Egypt.
