Genesis 47:22

χωρὶς τῆς γῆς τῶν ἱερέων μόνον· οὐκ ἐκτήσατο ταύτην Ἰωσήφ, ἐν δόσει γὰρ ἔδωκεν δόμα τοῖς ἱερεῦσιν Φαραώ, καὶ ἤσθιον τὴν δόσιν, ἣν ἔδωκεν αὐτοῖς Φαραώ· διὰ τοῦτο οὐκ ἀπέδοντο τὴν γῆν αὐτῶν.

except only the land of the priests; Ioseph did not acquire this, for Pharao gave a gift to the priests, and they ate their portion which Pharao gave them; because of this they did not sell their land.

רק אדמת הכהנים לא קנה כי חק לכהנים מאת פרעה ואכלו את־חקם אשׁר נתן להם פרעה על־כן לא מכרו את־אדמתם׃
