Then the king said to Joseph, "Look! I have put you in charge of all the land of Egypt."
Then the king took off from his own finger his ring with the royal seal on it, and he put it on Joseph's finger. He gave Joseph fine linen clothes to wear, and he put a gold chain around Joseph's neck.
The king had Joseph ride in the second royal chariot, and people walked ahead of his chariot calling, "Bow down!" By doing these things, the king put Joseph in charge of all of Egypt.
The king said to him, "I am the king, and I say that no one in all the land of Egypt may lift a hand or a foot without your permission."
The king gave Joseph the name Zaphenath-Paneah. He also gave Joseph a wife named Asenath, who was the daughter of Potiphera, priest of On. So Joseph traveled through all the land of Egypt.
Joseph was thirty years old when he began serving the king of Egypt. And he left the king's court and traveled through all the land of Egypt.
During the seven good years, the crops in the land grew well.
And Joseph gathered all the food which was produced in Egypt during those seven years of good crops and stored the food in the cities. In every city he stored grain that had been grown in the fields around that city.
Joseph stored much grain, as much as the sand of the seashore -- so much that he could not measure it.
Joseph's wife was Asenath daughter of Potiphera, the priest of On. Before the years of hunger came, Joseph and Asenath had two sons.
Joseph named the first son Manassehn and said, "God has made me forget all the troubles I have had and all my father's family."
