Genesis 41:36-46 (Wycliffe)

View In My Bible
36 and be it made ready to the hunger to coming of the seven years that shall oppress Egypt, and the land be not wasted by poverty. (and have it made ready for the seven years of famine to come that shall oppress Egypt, and so the land shall not be destroyed by neediness.) 37 The counsel of Joseph pleased Pharaoh, and all his servants, 38 and he spake to them, Whether we be able to find such a man which is full of God's spirit? (and Pharaoh said to them, Could we find any other man who is so full of God's spirit as this man is?) 39 Therefore Pharaoh said to Joseph, For God hath showed to thee all things which thou hast spoken, whether I may find a wiser man than thou, and like to thee? (And so Pharaoh said to Joseph, For God hath shown to thee all the things which thou hast spoken, I know that I cannot find a wiser man than thou, or anyone even like thee!) 40 Therefore thou shalt be over mine house(hold), and all the people shall obey to the behest of thy mouth; I shall pass thee only by one throne of the realm (only by my throne of the kingdom shall I be greater than thee). 41 And again Pharaoh said to Joseph, Lo! I have ordained thee on all the land of Egypt. (And so Pharaoh said to Joseph, Lo! I ordain thee on all the land of Egypt.) 42 And Pharaoh took (off) the ring from his hand, and gave it in the hand of Joseph (and put it on Joseph's finger), and he clothed Joseph with a stole of bis, or of white silk, and he put a golden wreath about his neck; 43 and Pharaoh made Joseph to go upon his second chariot (and Pharaoh had Joseph ride upon his second chariot), while a beadle cried, that all men should kneel before him, and should know that he was (the) sovereign of all the land of Egypt. 44 And the king said to Joseph, I am Pharaoh, (and) without thy behest no man shall stir hand either foot in all the land of Egypt. 45 And Pharaoh turned the name of Joseph, and called him by the Egyptian language, The Saviour of the World (And Pharaoh changed Joseph's name, and called him in the Egyptian language, Zaphnathpaaneah); and he gave to Joseph a wife, Asenath, the daughter of Potipherah, a priest of Heliopolis, that is, The City of the Sun. And so Joseph went out (in)to the land of Egypt. 46 Forsooth Joseph was of thirty years, when he stood in the sight of king Pharaoh, and compassed all the countries of Egypt. (And Joseph was thirty years old, when he stood before Pharaoh, the king of Egypt, and then went forth through all the countryside.)
