(Joseph) said: "Set me over the store-houses of the land: I will indeed guard them, as one that knows (their importance)."

Tafsir

He, Joseph, said, 'Place me in charge of the storehouses of the land, the land of Egypt. I am indeed a skilled custodian', one worthy of custodianship thereof, and knowledgeable in such affairs - it is also said [that he meant]: [I am indeed] a [competent] scribe and accountant.
