8 In the morning Pharaoh, feeling disturbed, had all the magicians and wise men of Egypt summoned to him. Pharaoh told them his dream, but there was no one to interpret it for Pharaoh.
12 There was a young Hebrew with us, one of the slaves belonging to the commander of the guard. We told our dreams to him and he interpreted them for us, telling each of us what his dream meant.
13 It turned out exactly according to his interpretation: I was restored to my position, but the other man was hanged.'
14 Then Pharaoh had Joseph summoned, and they hurried him from the dungeon. He shaved and changed his clothes, and presented himself before Pharaoh.
25 Joseph said to Pharaoh, 'Pharaoh's dreams are one and the same: God has revealed to Pharaoh what he is going to do.
27 The seven gaunt and lean cows coming up behind them are seven years, as are the seven shrivelled ears of grain scorched by the east wind: there will be seven years of famine.
28 It is as I have told Pharaoh: God has revealed to Pharaoh what he is going to do.
34 Pharaoh should take action and appoint supervisors for the country, and impose a tax of one-fifth on Egypt during the seven years of plenty.
38 Then Pharaoh asked his ministers, 'Can we find anyone else endowed with the spirit of God, like him?'
40 You shall be my chancellor, and all my people shall respect your orders; only this throne shall set me above you.'
46 Joseph was thirty years old when he entered the service of Pharaoh king of Egypt. After leaving Pharaoh's presence, Joseph travelled throughout the length and breadth of Egypt.
49 Joseph gathered in grain like the sand of the sea, in such quantity that he gave up keeping count, since it was past accounting.
50 Before the year of famine came, two sons were born to Joseph: Asenath daughter of Potiphera, priest of On, bore him these.
51 Joseph named the first-born Manasseh, 'Because', he said, 'God has made me completely forget my hardships and my father's House.'
53 Then the seven years of plenty that there had been in Egypt came to an end,
56 There was famine all over the world. Then Joseph opened all the granaries and rationed out grain to the Egyptians, as the famine grew even worse in Egypt.
57 People came to Egypt from all over the world to get supplies from Joseph, for the famine had grown severe throughout the world.
