Genesis 47:26

Καὶ ἔθετο αὐτοῖς Ἰωσὴφ εἰς πρόσταγμα ἕως τῆς ἡμέρας ταύτης ἐπὶ γῆν Αἰγύπτου τῷ Φαραὼ ἀποπεμπτοῦν, χωρὶς τῆς γῆς τῶν ἱερέων μόνον· οὐκ ἦν τῷ Φαραώ.

And Ioseph appointed to them as an ordinance until this day on the land of Egypt to give a fifth part to Pharao, except only the land of the priests; that was not Pharao’s.

וישׂם אתה יוסף לחק עד־היום הזה על־אדמת מצרים לפרעה לחמשׁ רק אדמת הכהנים לבדם לא היתה לפרעה׃
