Unchecked Copy BoxGen 41:6 - Then behold, seven thin heads, blighted by the east wind, sprang up after them.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 41:7 - And the seven thin heads devoured the seven plump and full heads. So Pharaoh awoke, and indeed, it was a dream.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 41:8 - Now it came to pass in the morning that his spirit was troubled, and he sent and called for all the magicians of Egypt and all its wise men. And Pharaoh told them his dreams, but there was no one who could interpret them for Pharaoh.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 41:48 - So he gathered up all the food of the seven years which were in the land of Egypt, and laid up the food in the cities; he laid up in every city the food of the fields which surrounded them.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 41:49 - Joseph gathered very much grain, as the sand of the sea, until he stopped counting, for it was immeasurable.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 41:52 - And the name of the second he called Ephraim:[fn] “For God has caused me to be fruitful in the land of my affliction.”

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 41:53 - Then the seven years of plenty which were in the land of Egypt ended,

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 41:54 - and the seven years of famine began to come, as Joseph had said. The famine was in all lands, but in all the land of Egypt there was bread.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 41:55 - So when all the land of Egypt was famished, the people cried to Pharaoh for bread. Then Pharaoh said to all the Egyptians, “Go to Joseph; whatever he says to you, do.”
