38 Then Pharaoh said to his servants, “Can we find a man like this, ain whom is a divine spirit?”
39 So Pharaoh said to Joseph, “Since God has informed you of all this, there is no one so adiscerning and wise as you are.
41 Pharaoh said to Joseph, “See, I have set you aover all the land of Egypt.”
47 During the seven years of plenty the land brought forth 1abundantly.
51 Joseph named the firstborn 1Manasseh, “For,” he said, “God has made me forget all my trouble and all my father’s household.”
54 and athe seven years of famine began to come, just as Joseph had said, then there was famine in all the lands, but in all the land of Egypt there was bread.
55 So when all the land of Egypt was famished, the people cried out to Pharaoh for bread; and Pharaoh said to all the Egyptians, “Go to Joseph; awhatever he says to you, you shall do.”
56 When the famine was spread over all the face of the earth, then Joseph opened all 1the storehouses, and sold to the Egyptians; and the famine was severe in the land of Egypt.
57 The people of all the earth came to Egypt to buy grain from Joseph, because athe famine was severe in all the earth.
1 Now aJacob saw that there was grain in Egypt, and Jacob said to his sons, “Why are you staring at one another?”
5 So the sons of Israel came to buy grain among those who were coming, afor the famine was in the land of Canaan also.
7 When Joseph saw his brothers he recognized them, but he disguised himself to them and aspoke to them harshly. And he said to them, “Where have you come from?” And they said, “From the land of Canaan, to buy food.”
8 But Joseph had recognized his brothers, although athey did not recognize him.
10 Then they said to him, “No, amy lord, but your servants have come to buy food.
11 “We are all sons of one man; we are ahonest men, your servants are not spies.”
12 Yet he said to them, “No, but you have come to look at the 1undefended parts of our land!”
14 Joseph said to them, “It is as I said 1to you, you are spies;
15 by this you will be tested: aby the life of Pharaoh, you shall not go from this place unless your youngest brother comes here!
16 “Send one of you that he may get your brother, while you remain confined, that your words may be tested, whether there is atruth in you. But if not, by the life of Pharaoh, surely you are spies.”
17 So he put them all together in aprison for three days.
