Bible: Genesis 41:37-45

41:37 This advice made sense to Pharaoh and all his officials. 1  41:38 So Pharaoh asked his officials, “Can we find a man like Joseph, 2  one in whom the Spirit of God is present? 3  41:39 So Pharaoh said to Joseph, “Because God has enabled you to know all this, there is no one as wise and discerning 4  as you are! 41:40 You will oversee my household, and all my people will submit to your commands. 5  Only I, the king, will be greater than you. 6 

41:41See here,” Pharaoh said to Joseph, “I place 7  you in authority over all the land of Egypt.” 8  41:42 Then Pharaoh took his signet ring from his own hand and put it on Joseph’s. He clothed him with fine linen 9  clothes and put a gold chain around his neck. 41:43 Pharaoh 10  had him ride in the chariot used by his second-in-command, 11  and they cried out before him, “Kneel down!” 12  So he placed him over all the land of Egypt. 41:44 Pharaoh also said to Joseph, “I am Pharaoh, but without your permission 13  no one 14  will move his hand or his foot 15  in all the land of Egypt.” 41:45 Pharaoh gave Joseph the name Zaphenath-Paneah. 16  He also gave him Asenath 17  daughter of Potiphera, priest of On, 18  to be his wife. So Joseph took charge of 19  all the land of Egypt.
