CEB 33 "Now Pharaoh should find an intelligent, wise man and give him authority over the land of Egypt. NIV 33 "And now let Pharaoh look for a discerning and wise man and put him in charge of the land of Egypt. CEB 34 Then Pharaoh should appoint administrators over the land and take one-fifth of all the produce of the land of Egypt during the seven years of abundance. NIV 34 Let Pharaoh appoint commissioners over the land to take a fifth of the harvest of Egypt during the seven years of abundance. CEB 35 During the good years that are coming, they should collect all such food and store the grain under Pharaoh's control, protecting the food in the cities. NIV 35 They should collect all the food of these good years that are coming and store up the grain under the authority of Pharaoh, to be kept in the cities for food. CEB 36 This food will be reserved for the seven years of famine to follow in the land of Egypt so that the land won't be ravaged by the famine." NIV 36 This food should be held in reserve for the country, to be used during the seven years of famine that will come upon Egypt, so that the country may not be ruined by the famine." CEB 37 This advice seemed wise to Pharaoh and all his servants, NIV 37 The plan seemed good to Pharaoh and to all his officials.

NIV 40 You shall be in charge of my palace, and all my people are to submit to your orders. Only with respect to the throne will I be greater than you." CEB 41 Pharaoh said to Joseph, "Know this: I've given you authority over the entire land of Egypt." NIV 41 So Pharaoh said to Joseph, "I hereby put you in charge of the whole land of Egypt." CEB 42 Pharaoh took his signet ring from his hand and put it on Joseph's hand, he dressed him in linen clothes, and he put a gold necklace around his neck. NIV 42 Then Pharaoh took his signet ring from his finger and put it on Joseph's finger. He dressed him in robes of fine linen and put a gold chain around his neck. CEB 43 He put Joseph on the chariot of his second-in-command, and everyone in front of him cried out, "Attention!" So Pharaoh installed him over the entire land of Egypt. NIV 43 He had him ride in a chariot as his second-in-command, and men shouted before him, "Make way !" Thus he put him in charge of the whole land of Egypt. CEB 44 Pharaoh said to Joseph, "I am Pharaoh; no one will do anything or go anywhere in all the land of Egypt without your permission."

CEB 50 Before the years of famine arrived, Asenath the daughter of Potiphera, priest of Heliopolis, gave birth to two sons for Joseph. NIV 50 Before the years of famine came, two sons were born to Joseph by Asenath daughter of Potiphera, priest of On. CEB 51 Joseph named the oldest son Manasseh,"because," he said, "God has helped me forget all of my troubles and everyone in my father's household."

CEB 52 He named the second Ephraim,"because," he said, "God has given me children in the land where I've been treated harshly."

CEB 57 Every country came to Egypt to buy grain from Joseph, because in every country the famine had also become more severe. NIV 57 And all the countries came to Egypt to buy grain from Joseph, because the famine was severe in all the world.
