Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Genesis 41:34

_ _ and let him appoint officers over the land — overseers, equivalent to the beys of modern Egypt.

_ _ take up the fifth part of the land — that is, of the land’s produce, to be purchased and stored by the government, instead of being sold to foreign corn merchants.

Matthew Henry's Commentary
