Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Genesis 41:38

_ _ Pharaoh said unto his servants — The kings of ancient Egypt were assisted in the management of state affairs by the advice of the most distinguished members of the priestly order; and, accordingly, before admitting Joseph to the new and extraordinary office that was to be created, those ministers were consulted as to the expediency and propriety of the appointment.

_ _ a man in whom the Spirit of God is — An acknowledgment of the being and power of the true God, though faint and feeble, continued to linger amongst the higher classes long after idolatry had come to prevail.

Matthew Henry's Commentary
