The Israelites have come to Egypt. Joseph has promised provision for his family and they are given the best of the land to live in. God has richly blessed his chosen people and has brought them to a place where they can grow and become the nation he intends, separate from the nations around them.

"Then Joseph settled his father and his brothers and gave them a possession in the land of Egypt, in the best of the land, in the land of Rameses, as Pharaoh had commanded. And Joseph provided his father, his brothers, and all his father's household with food, according to the number of their dependents." Genesis 47:11-12
