Genesis 45

Verses 1-28

Genesis 45:5

'The case of Themistocles was almost like that of Joseph; on being banished into Egypt he also grew in favour with the king, and told his wife "he had been undone, unless he had been undone". For God esteems it one of His glories that He brings good out of evil; and therefore it were but reason we should trust God to goven His own world as He pleases; and that we should patiently wait till the change cometh, or the reason be discovered.'

Jeremy Taylor, Holy Living.
