THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

Genesis (Author Moses)

39:2And the LORD was with Joseph, and he was a prosperous man; and he was in the house of his master the Egyptian.

39:3And his master saw that the LORD was with him, and that the LORD made all that he did to prosper in his hand.

39:4And Joseph found grace in his sight, and he served him: and he made him overseer over his house, and all that he had he put into his hand.

39:5And it came to pass from the time that he had made him overseer in his house, and over all that he had, that the LORD blessed the Egyptian's house for Joseph's sake; and the blessing of the LORD was upon all that he had in the house, and in the field.

39:6And he left all that he had in Joseph's hand; and he knew not ought he had, save the bread which he did eat. And Joseph was a goodly person, and well favoured.

39:7And it came to pass after these things, that his master's wife cast her eyes upon Joseph; and she said, Lie with me.

39:8But he refused, and said unto his master's wife, Behold, my master wotteth not what is with me in the house, and he hath committed all that he hath to my hand;

39:9There is none greater in this house than I; neither hath he kept back any thing from me but thee, because thou art his wife: how then can I do this great wickedness, and sin against God?

39:10And it came to pass, as she spake to Joseph day by day, that he hearkened not unto her, to lie by her, or to be with her.

39:11And it came to pass about this time, that Joseph went into the house to do his business; and there was none of the men of the house there within.

39:12And she caught him by his garment, saying, Lie with me: and he left his garment in her hand, and fled, and got him out.

39:13And it came to pass, when she saw that he had left his garment in her hand, and was fled forth,

39:14That she called unto the men of her house, and spake unto them, saying, See, he hath brought in an Hebrew unto us to mock us; he came in unto me to lie with me, and I cried with a loud voice:

39:15And it came to pass, when he heard that I lifted up my voice and cried, that he left his garment with me, and fled, and got him out.

39:16And she laid up his garment by her, until his lord came home.

39:17And she spake unto him according to these words, saying, The Hebrew servant, which thou hast brought unto us, came in unto me to mock me:

39:18And it came to pass, as I lifted up my voice and cried, that he left his garment with me, and fled out.

39:19And it came to pass, when his master heard the words of his wife, which she spake unto him, saying, After this manner did thy servant to me; that his wrath was kindled.

39:20And Joseph's master took him, and put him into the prison, a place where the king's prisoners were bound: and he was there in the prison.

41:9Then spake the chief butler unto Pharaoh, saying, I do remember my faults this day:

41:10Pharaoh was wroth with his servants, and put me in ward in the captain of the guard's house, both me and the chief baker:

41:11And we dreamed a dream in one night, I and he; we dreamed each man according to the interpretation of his dream.

41:12And there was there with us a young man, an Hebrew, servant to the captain of the guard; and we told him, and he interpreted to us our dreams; to each man according to his dream he did interpret.

41:13And it came to pass, as he interpreted to us, so it was; me he restored unto mine office, and him he hanged.

41:14Then Pharaoh sent and called Joseph, and they brought him hastily out of the dungeon: and he shaved himself, and changed his raiment, and came in unto Pharaoh.

41:15And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, I have dreamed a dream, and there is none that can interpret it: and I have heard say of thee, that thou canst understand a dream to interpret it.

41:16And Joseph answered Pharaoh, saying, It is not in me: God shall give Pharaoh an answer of peace.

41:17And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, In my dream, behold, I stood upon the bank of the river:

41:18And, behold, there came up out of the river seven kine, fatfleshed and well favoured; and they fed in a meadow:

41:19And, behold, seven other kine came up after them, poor and very ill favoured and leanfleshed, such as I never saw in all the land of Egypt for badness:

41:20And the lean and the ill favoured kine did eat up the first seven fat kine:

41:21And when they had eaten them up, it could not be known that they had eaten them; but they were still ill favoured, as at the beginning. So I awoke.

41:22And I saw in my dream, and, behold, seven ears came up in one stalk, full and good:

41:23And, behold, seven ears, withered, thin, and blasted with the east wind, sprung up after them:

41:24And the thin ears devoured the seven good ears: and I told this unto the magicians; but there was none that could declare it to me.

41:25And Joseph said unto Pharaoh, The dream of Pharaoh is one: God hath shewed Pharaoh what he is about to do.

41:26The seven good kine are seven years; and the seven good ears are seven years: the dream is one.

41:27And the seven thin and ill favoured kine that came up after them are seven years; and the seven empty ears blasted with the east wind shall be seven years of famine.

41:28This is the thing which I have spoken unto Pharaoh: What God is about to do he sheweth unto Pharaoh.

41:29Behold, there come seven years of great plenty throughout all the land of Egypt:

41:30And there shall arise after them seven years of famine; and all the plenty shall be forgotten in the land of Egypt; and the famine shall consume the land;

41:31And the plenty shall not be known in the land by reason of that famine following; for it shall be very grievous.

41:32And for that the dream was doubled unto Pharaoh twice; it is because the thing is established by God, and God will shortly bring it to pass.

41:33Now therefore let Pharaoh look out a man discreet and wise, and set him over the land of Egypt.

41:34Let Pharaoh do this, and let him appoint officers over the land, and take up the fifth part of the land of Egypt in the seven plenteous years.

41:35And let them gather all the food of those good years that come, and lay up corn under the hand of Pharaoh, and let them keep food in the cities.

41:36And that food shall be for store to the land against the seven years of famine, which shall be in the land of Egypt; that the land perish not through the famine.

41:37And the thing was good in the eyes of Pharaoh, and in the eyes of all his servants.

41:38And Pharaoh said unto his servants, Can we find such a one as this is, a man in whom the Spirit of God is?

41:39And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, Forasmuch as God hath shewed thee all this, there is none so discreet and wise as thou art:

41:40Thou shalt be over my house, and according unto thy word shall all my people be ruled: only in the throne will I be greater than thou.

41:41And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, See, I have set thee over all the land of Egypt.

41:42And Pharaoh took off his ring from his hand, and put it upon Joseph's hand, and arrayed him in vestures of fine linen, and put a gold chain about his neck;

41:43And he made him to ride in the second chariot which he had; and they cried before him, Bow the knee: and he made him ruler over all the land of Egypt.

41:44And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, I am Pharaoh, and without thee shall no man lift up his hand or foot in all the land of Egypt.

41:45And Pharaoh called Joseph's name Zaphnathpaaneah; and he gave him to wife Asenath the daughter of Potipherah priest of On. And Joseph went out over all the land of Egypt.

41:46And Joseph was thirty years old when he stood before Pharaoh king of Egypt. And Joseph went out from the presence of Pharaoh, and went throughout all the land of Egypt.

41:47And in the seven plenteous years the earth brought forth by handfuls.

41:48And he gathered up all the food of the seven years, which were in the land of Egypt, and laid up the food in the cities: the food of the field, which was round about every city, laid he up in the same.

41:49And Joseph gathered corn as the sand of the sea, very much, until he left numbering; for it was without number.

41:50And unto Joseph were born two sons before the years of famine came, which Asenath the daughter of Potipherah priest of On bare unto him.

41:51And Joseph called the name of the firstborn Manasseh: For God, said he, hath made me forget all my toil, and all my father's house.

41:52And the name of the second called he Ephraim: For God hath caused me to be fruitful in the land of my affliction.

41:53And the seven years of plenteousness, that was in the land of Egypt, were ended.

41:54And the seven years of dearth began to come, according as Joseph had said: and the dearth was in all lands; but in all the land of Egypt there was bread.

41:55And when all the land of Egypt was famished, the people cried to Pharaoh for bread: and Pharaoh said unto all the Egyptians, Go unto Joseph; what he saith to you, do.

41:56And the famine was over all the face of the earth: And Joseph opened all the storehouses, and sold unto the Egyptians; and the famine waxed sore in the land of Egypt.

41:57And all countries came into Egypt to Joseph for to buy corn; because that the famine was so sore in all lands.

Acts (Author Luke)

7:10And delivered him out of all his afflictions, and gave him favour and wisdom in the sight of Pharaoh king of Egypt; and he made him governor over Egypt and all his house.
