Genesis 41:37-39

Context

41:37 This advice made sense to Pharaoh and all his officials. 1  41:38 So Pharaoh asked his officials, “Can we find a man like Joseph, 2  one in whom the Spirit of God is present?” 3  41:39 So Pharaoh said to Joseph, “Because God has enabled you to know all this, there is no one as wise and discerning 4  as you are!

1 tn Heb “and the matter was good in the eyes of Pharaoh and in the eyes of all his servants.”

2 tn Heb “like this,” but the referent could be misunderstood to be a man like that described by Joseph in v. 33, rather than Joseph himself. For this reason the proper name “Joseph” has been supplied in the translation.

3 tn The rhetorical question expects the answer “No, of course not!”

4 tn Heb “as discerning and wise.” The order has been rearranged in the translation for stylistic reasons.
