Then he called for a famine in the land and destroyed the supply of bread.
He sent a man before them, Joseph, who was sold as a slave.
They bruised his feet in fetters; his neck they put in an iron collar.
Until his prediction came to pass, the word of the Lord tested him.
The king sent and released him; the ruler of the peoples set him free.
He set him as a master over his household, as a ruler over all his possessions,
To instruct his princes according to his will and to teach his elders wisdom.
