Genesis 41:38-49

Joseph Is Made a Ruler of Egypt

38 Then Pharaoh said to his servants, "Can we find a man like this, 1in whom is a divine spirit?"
39 So Pharaoh said to Joseph, "Since God has informed you of all this, there is no one so 2discerning and wise as you are.
40 "3You shall be over my house, and according to your command all my people shall do homage; only in the throne I will be greater than you."
41 Pharaoh said to Joseph, "See, I have set you 4over all the land of Egypt."
42 Then Pharaoh 5took off his signet ring from his hand and put it on Joseph's hand, and clothed him in garments of fine linen and 6put the gold necklace around his neck.
43 He had him ride in his second chariot; and they proclaimed before him, "Bow the knee!" And he set him over all the land of Egypt.
44 Moreover, Pharaoh said to Joseph, "Though I am Pharaoh, yet 7without your permission no one shall raise his hand or foot in all the land of Egypt."
45 Then Pharaoh named * Joseph Zaphenath-paneah; and he gave him Asenath, the daughter of Potiphera priest of 8On, as his wife. And Joseph went forth over the land of Egypt.
46 Now Joseph was 9thirty years old when he stood before Pharaoh, king of Egypt. And Joseph went out from the presence of Pharaoh and went through all the land of Egypt.
47 During the seven years of plenty the land brought forth abundantly.
48 So he gathered all the food of these seven years which occurred in the land of Egypt and placed the food in the cities; he placed in every city the food from its own surrounding fields.
49 Thus Joseph stored up grain in great abundance like the sand of the sea, until * he stopped measuring it, for it was beyond measure.
