 47:20
 47:21
47:20 Joseph [thus] bought up all the farm land in Egypt for Pharaoh. Every man in Egypt had sold his field, for the famine was too much for them, and the land became Pharaoh's property.
Vayiken Yosef et-kol-admat Mitsrayim le-Far'oh ki-machru Mitsrayim ish sadehu ki-chazak alehem hara'av vatehi ha'arets le-Far'oh.
47:21 [Joseph] moved the people to the cities in all Egypt's borders, from one end to the other.
Ve'et-ha'am he'evir oto le'arim miktseh gvul-Mitsrayim ve'ad-katsehu.



Commentary:

moved the people...
  Since they no longer owned the land.
