Here's answer to week's question

(From page 2)

After the arrival of his family into Egypt, Joseph "took some of his brethren, even five men, and presented them unto Pharaoh.

"And Pharaoh said unto his brethren, What is your occupation?"

The brothers replied that they were shepherds, and Pharaoh proceeded to offer them the "best of the land" in Egypt.

Joseph then brought in Jacob to meet Pharaoh, and "Jacob blessed Pharaoh."

"And Pharaoh said unto Jacob, How old art thou?"

Jacob replied that he was "an hundred and thirty years."
