During this period Joseph is betrayed by his own people and sold into slavery for 20 pieces of silver.
The Pharaoh brings him to his house and treats him kindly and makes him ruler over all of Egypt.
(Gen 37:3 KJV) Now Israel loved Joseph more than all his
children, because he was the son of his old age: and he made him a coat of many colours.

The Biblical translation in the Holy Bible the term "kill"
Was mistranslated. The true translation
~~~~In my view
"Thy Shall Not Murder"
you agree and/or not agree-?
(Gen 37:23 KJV)
And it came to pass, when Joseph was come unto his brethren, that they stripped Joseph out of his coat, his coat of
many colours that was on him;
(Gen 37:24 KJV) And they took him, and cast him into a pit: and the pit was empty, there was no
water in it.
they "Murder" him they get a better idea and decide to sell him as a slave to the Midianites
(Gen 37:25 KJV)
And they sat down to eat bread: and they lifted up their eyes and looked, and, behold, a company of Ishmeelites came
from Gilead with their camels bearing spicery and balm and myrrh, going to carry it down to Egypt.
(Gen 37:27 KJV) Come,
and let us sell him to the Ishmeelites, and let not our hand be upon him; for he is our brother and our flesh. And his brethren
37:28 KJV) Then there passed by Midianites merchantmen; and they drew and lifted up Joseph out of the pit,
and sold Joseph to the Ishmeelites for twenty pieces of silver: and they brought Joseph into Egypt.
The Midianites in turn sell Joseph to a Egyptian
(Gen 37:36 KJV) And the
Midianites sold him into Egypt unto Potiphar, an officer of Pharaoh's, and captain of the guard.
Joseph’s master believes that Joseph
was trying to seduce his wife and casts him into a prison
(Gen 39:20 KJV) And Joseph's master took him,
and put him into the prison, a place where the king's prisoners were bound: and he was there in the prison.
(Gen 39:22 KJV) And the keeper of the prison
committed to Joseph's hand all the prisoners that were in the prison; and whatsoever they did there, he was the doer of it.
Joseph interprets some dreams and
his interpretations come true. The Pharaoh gets word of this and brings Joseph out of the prison to stay in the Pharaoh’s
41:39 KJV) And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, Forasmuch as God hath showed thee all this, there is none so discreet
and wise as thou art:
41:40 KJV) Thou shalt be over my house, and according unto thy word shall all my people be ruled: only
in the throne will I be greater than thou.
41:41 KJV) And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, See, I have set thee over all the land of Egypt.
(Gen 41:42 KJV) And Pharaoh
took off his ring from his hand, and put it upon Joseph's hand, and arrayed him in vestures of fine linen, and put a gold
chain about his neck;
41:43 KJV) And he made him to ride in the second chariot which he had; and they cried before him, Bow the
knee: and he made him ruler over all the land of Egypt.
(Gen 41:44 KJV) And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, I am Pharaoh, and without thee shall no man lift
up his hand or foot in all the land of Egypt.
(Gen 41:46 KJV) And Joseph was thirty years old when he stood before Pharaoh king of Egypt. And
Joseph went out from the presence of Pharaoh, and went throughout all the land of Egypt.
Clearly Joseph was no slave but instead was revered
by the Egyptian people
