Bible: Genesis 41:33-36

41:33So now Pharaoh should look 1  for a wise and discerning man 2  and give him authority 3  over all the land of Egypt. 41:34 Pharaoh should do 4  this – he should appoint 5  officials 6  throughout the land to collect one-fifth of the produce of the land of Egypt 7  during the seven years of abundance. 41:35 They should gather all the excess food 8  during these good years that are coming. By Pharaoh’s authority 9  they should store up grain so the cities will have food, 10  and they should preserve it. 11  41:36 This food should be held in storage for the land in preparation for the seven years of famine that will occur throughout the land of Egypt. In this way the land will survive the famine.” 12
