31 So the plenty will not be known in the land because of the famine following, for it will be very severe. 32 And the dream was repeated to Pharaoh twice because the cthing is established by God, and God will shortly bring it to pass.
33 “Now therefore, let Pharaoh select a discerning and wise man, and set him over the land of Egypt. 34 Let Pharaoh do this, and let him appoint 3officers over the land, dto collect one-fifth of the produce of the land of Egypt in the seven plentiful years. 35 And elet them gather all the food of those good years that are coming, and store up grain under the 4authority of Pharaoh, and let them keep food in the cities. 36 Then that food shall be as a 5reserve for the land for the seven years of famine which shall be in the land of Egypt, that the land fmay not 6perish during the famine.”
39 Then Pharaoh said to Joseph, “Inasmuch as God has shown you all this, there is no one as discerning and wise as you. 40 iYou shall be 7over my house, and all my people shall be ruled according to your word; only in regard to the throne will I be greater than you.” 41 And Pharaoh said to Joseph, “See, I have jset you over all the land of Egypt.”
42 Then Pharaoh ktook his signet ring off his hand and put it on Joseph’s hand; and he lclothed him in garments of fine linen mand put a gold chain around his neck. 43 And he had him ride in the second nchariot which he had; oand they cried out before him, “Bow the knee!” So he set him pover all the land of Egypt. 44 Pharaoh also said to Joseph, “I am Pharaoh, and without your consent no man may lift his hand or foot in all the land of Egypt.”
