40 You shall be over my household, and according to your word all my people shall be ruled; only in the throne will I be greater than you.
41 Then Pharaoh said to Joseph, See, I have set you over all the land of Egypt.
42 And Pharaoh took off his signet ring from his hand and put it upon Joseph’s hand, and clothed him in garments of fine linen, and put a gold chain around his neck.
43 And he made him ride in the chariot of his second-in-command, and they cried out before him, Bow the knee! And he set him over all the land of Egypt.
44 And Pharaoh said to Joseph, I am Pharaoh, yet without your consent no man will lift up his hand or his foot in all the land of Egypt.
45 And Pharaoh called Joseph’s name Zaphenath-paneah, and he gave him Asenath, the daughter of Potiphera priest of On, as his wife. And Joseph went out over the land of Egypt.
46 Now Joseph was thirty years old when he stood before Pharaoh, the king of Egypt. And Joseph went out from the presence of Pharaoh and passed through all the land of Egypt.
47 And in the seven years of abundance the earth produced copiously.
48 And he gathered up all the food of the seven years which came upon the land of Egypt and put the food in the cities; he placed the food from the surrounding fields within each city.
49 And Joseph stored grain in great abundance like the sand of the sea until he stopped measuring it; for it was beyond measure.
50 And before the year of famine came, two sons were born to Joseph, whom Asenath, the daughter of Potiphera priest of On, bore to him.
51 And Joseph called the name of the firstborn Manasseh, for, he said, God has made me forget all my trouble and all my father’s house.
52 And he called the name of the second Ephraim, for, he said, God has made me fruitful in the land of my affliction.
53 And the seven years of plenty that came upon the land of Egypt came to an end.
54 And the seven years of famine began to come, as Joseph had said. And there was famine in all lands, but in all the land of Egypt there was bread.
55 So when all the land of Egypt became hungry, the people cried out to Pharaoh for bread. And Pharaoh said to all the Egyptians, Go to Joseph; whatever he says to you, you shall do.
56 And when the famine was over all the face of the earth, Joseph opened all the storehouses of grain and sold grain to the Egyptians; and the famine became severe in the land of Egypt.
57 And all the earth came to Joseph in Egypt to buy grain, because the famine was severe in all the earth.
