Genesis 41:33

Context

41:33 “So now Pharaoh should look 1  for a wise and discerning man 2  and give him authority 3  over all the land of Egypt.

Genesis 41:38

Context
41:38 So Pharaoh asked his officials, “Can we find a man like Joseph, 4  one in whom the Spirit of God is present?” 5 

1 tn Heb “let Pharaoh look.” The jussive form expresses Joseph’s advice to Pharaoh.

2 tn Heb “a man discerning and wise.” The order of the terms is rearranged in the translation for stylistic reasons.

3 tn Heb “and let him set him.”

4 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.

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