Genesis 47:20

Καὶ ἐκτήσατο Ἰωσὴφ πᾶσαν τὴν γῆν τῶν Αἰγυπτίων τῷ Φαραώ· ἀπέδοντο γὰρ οἱ Αἰγύπτιοι τὴν γῆν αὐτῶν τῷ Φαραώ, ἐπεκράτησεν γὰρ αὐτῶν ὁ λιμός· καὶ ἐγένετο ἡ γῆ Φαραώ.

And Ioseph acquired all the land of the Egyptians for Pharao; for the Egyptians sold their land to Pharao, for the famine prevailed against them; and the land became Pharao’s.

ויקן יוסף את־כל־אדמת מצרים לפרעה כי־מכרו מצרים אישׁ שׂדהו כי־חזק עלהם הרעב ותהי הארץ לפרעה׃
