Genesis 41:38-39

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

1 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.

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

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