He had him ride in the chariot of the second-in-command. Men ran ahead of him and shouted, "Make way!" Pharaoh put Joseph in charge of Egypt.
He also said to Joseph, "Even though I am Pharaoh, no one anywhere in Egypt will do anything without your permission."
Pharaoh named Joseph Zaphenathpaneah and gave him Asenath as his wife. She was the daughter of Potiphera, priest from the city of On. Joseph traveled around Egypt.
Joseph was 30 years old when he entered the service of Pharaoh (the king of Egypt). He left Pharaoh and traveled all around Egypt.
During the seven good years the land produced large harvests.
Joseph collected all the food grown in Egypt during those seven years and put this food in the cities. In each city he put the food from the fields around it.
Joseph stored up grain in huge quantities like the sand on the seashore. He had so much that he finally gave up keeping any records because he couldn't measure it all.
Before the years of famine came, Joseph had two sons by Asenath, daughter of Potiphera, priest from the city of On.
Joseph named his firstborn son Manasseh [He Helps Me Forget], because God helped him forget all his troubles and all about his father's family.
He named the second son Ephraim [Blessed Twice With Children], because God gave him children in the land where he had suffered.
The seven years when there was plenty of food in Egypt came to an end.
