The Lord appeared to him and said: “Do not go down to Egypt. Stay in the land that I shall say to you. Sojourn in this land so that I may be with you and bless you….”
— Genesis 26.2-3
Isaac is the only patriarch who does not leave the Land of Israel. Abraham and Jacob both go to Egypt, but when famine strikes in his lifetime, God says to stay put.
