41 And Pharaoh said to Joseph, “See, I have (A)set you over all the land of Egypt.”

42 Then Pharaoh (B)took his signet ring off his hand and put it on Joseph’s hand; and he (C)clothed him in garments of fine linen (D)and put a gold chain around his neck. 43 And he had him ride in the second (E)chariot which he had; (F)and they cried out before him, “Bow the knee!” So he set him (G)over all the land of Egypt. 44 Pharaoh also said to Joseph, “I am Pharaoh, and without your consent no man may lift his hand or foot in all the land of Egypt.” 45 And Pharaoh called Joseph’s name [a]Zaphnath-Paaneah. And he gave him as a wife (H)Asenath, the daughter of Poti-Pherah priest of On. So Joseph went out over all the land of Egypt.

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