So Pharaoh asked them, "Can we find anyone like this man, one in whom is the spirit of God?"
King James Bible
And Pharaoh said unto his servants, Can we find such a one as this is, a man in whom the Spirit of God is?
American Standard Version
And Pharaoh said unto his servants, Can we find such a one as this, a man in whom the spirit of God is?
Young's Literal Translation
and Pharaoh saith unto his servants, 'Do we find like this, a man in whom the spirit of God is?'
Genesis 41:38 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
In whom the Spirit of God is? - רוח אלהים ruach Elohim, the identical words used Genesis 1:2; and certainly to be understood here as in the preceding place. If the Egyptians were idolaters, they acknowledged Joseph's God; and it is not to be supposed that they only became acquainted with him on this occasion. The knowledge of the true God was in Egypt long before; but it is very likely that though they acknowledged his influence with respect to Joseph, as they saw most clearly that he acted under an influence far beyond that of their magicians, for he interpreted dreams which they could not; yet they might, notwithstanding, have their gods many and their lords many at this time, for we know that in religious matters they were exceedingly corrupt afterwards.
