we dreamed on the same night, he and I, each having a dream with its own meaning.

and seven cows, fat and sleek, came up out of the Nile and fed in the reed grass;

Tools specific to Gen 41:19

and seven other cows came up after them, poor and very gaunt and thin, such as I had never seen in all the land of Egypt.

Unchecked Copy Box Gen 41:20

And the thin and gaunt cows ate up the first seven fat cows,

Tools specific to Gen 41:21

but when they had eaten them no one would have known that they had eaten them, for they were still as gaunt as at the beginning. Then I awoke.

I also saw in my dream seven ears growing on one stalk, full and good;

Tools specific to Gen 41:23

and seven ears, withered, thin, and blighted by the east wind, sprouted after them,

Tools specific to Gen 41:24

Unchecked Copy Box Gen 41:26

The seven good cows are seven years, and the seven good ears are seven years; the dream is one.

Unchecked Copy Box Gen 41:28

It is as I told Pharaoh, God has shown to Pharaoh what he is about to do.

Unchecked Copy Box Gen 41:29

There will come seven years of great plenty throughout all the land of Egypt,

Tools specific to Gen 41:30

Unchecked Copy Box Gen 41:30

but after them there will arise seven years of famine, and all the plenty will be forgotten in the land of Egypt; the famine will consume the land,

Tools specific to Gen 41:31

Unchecked Copy Box Gen 41:31

and the plenty will be unknown in the land by reason of that famine which will follow, for it will be very grievous.

Tools specific to Gen 41:32

Unchecked Copy Box Gen 41:32

And the doubling of Pharaoh's dream means that the thing is fixed by God, and God will shortly bring it to pass.

Now therefore let Pharaoh select a man discreet and wise, and set him over the land of Egypt.

Let Pharaoh proceed to appoint overseers over the land, and take the fifth part of the produce of the land of Egypt during the seven plenteous years.

Tools specific to Gen 41:35

Unchecked Copy Box Gen 41:35

And let them gather all the food of these good years that are coming, and lay up grain under the authority of Pharaoh for food in the cities, and let them keep it.

Tools specific to Gen 41:36

Unchecked Copy Box Gen 41:36

That food shall be a reserve for the land against the seven years of famine which are to befall the land of Egypt, so that the land may not perish through the famine."

Tools specific to Gen 41:37

Unchecked Copy Box Gen 41:37

This proposal seemed good to Pharaoh and to all his servants.

Tools specific to Gen 41:38

Unchecked Copy Box Gen 41:38

And Pharaoh said to his servants, "Can we find such a man as this, in whom is the Spirit of God?"

Tools specific to Gen 41:39

Unchecked Copy Box Gen 41:39

So Pharaoh said to Joseph, "Since God has shown you all this, there is none so discreet and wise as you are;

Tools specific to Gen 41:40

Unchecked Copy Box Gen 41:40

you shall be over my house, and all my people shall order themselves as you command; only as regards the throne will I be greater than you."

Tools specific to Gen 41:41

Unchecked Copy Box Gen 41:41

And Pharaoh said to Joseph, "Behold, I have set you over all the land of Egypt."

Tools specific to Gen 41:42

Unchecked Copy Box Gen 41:42

Then Pharaoh took his signet ring from his hand and put it on Joseph's hand, and arrayed him in garments of fine linen, and put a gold chain about his neck;

Tools specific to Gen 41:43

Unchecked Copy Box Gen 41:43

and he made him to ride in his second chariot; and they cried before him, "Bow the knee!" Thus he set him over all the land of Egypt.

Tools specific to Gen 41:44

Unchecked Copy Box Gen 41:44

Moreover Pharaoh said to Joseph, "I am Pharaoh, and without your consent no man shall lift up hand or foot in all the land of Egypt."

Tools specific to Gen 41:45

Unchecked Copy Box Gen 41:45

And Pharaoh called Joseph's name Zaph'enath-pane'ah; and he gave him in marriage As'enath, the daughter of Poti'phera priest of On. So Joseph went out over the land of Egypt.

Tools specific to Gen 41:46

Unchecked Copy Box Gen 41:46

Joseph was thirty years old when he entered the service of Pharaoh king of Egypt. And Joseph went out from the presence of Pharaoh, and went through all the land of Egypt.

Tools specific to Gen 41:47

Unchecked Copy Box Gen 41:47

During the seven plenteous years the earth brought forth abundantly,

Tools specific to Gen 41:48

Unchecked Copy Box Gen 41:48

and he gathered up all the food of the seven years when there was plenty in the land of Egypt, and stored up food in the cities; he stored up in every city the food from the fields around it.

Tools specific to Gen 41:49

Unchecked Copy Box Gen 41:49

And Joseph stored up grain in great abundance, like the sand of the sea, until he ceased to measure it, for it could not be measured.

Tools specific to Gen 41:50

Unchecked Copy Box Gen 41:50

Before the year of famine came, Joseph had two sons, whom As'enath, the daughter of Poti'phera priest of On, bore to him.

Tools specific to Gen 41:51

Unchecked Copy Box Gen 41:51

Joseph called the name of the first-born Manas'seh, "For," he said, "God has made me forget all my hardship and all my father's house."

Tools specific to Gen 41:52

Unchecked Copy Box Gen 41:52

The name of the second he called E'phraim, "For God has made me fruitful in the land of my affliction."

Tools specific to Gen 41:53

Unchecked Copy Box Gen 41:53

The seven years of plenty that prevailed in the land of Egypt came to an end;

Tools specific to Gen 41:54

Unchecked Copy Box Gen 41:54

and the seven years of famine began to come, as Joseph had said. There was famine in all lands; but in all the land of Egypt there was bread.

Tools specific to Gen 41:55

Unchecked Copy Box Gen 41:55

When all the land of Egypt was famished, the people cried to Pharaoh for bread; and Pharaoh said to all the Egyptians, "Go to Joseph; what he says to you, do."

Tools specific to Gen 41:56

Unchecked Copy Box Gen 41:56

So when the famine had spread over all the land, Joseph opened all the storehouses, and sold to the Egyptians, for the famine was severe in the land of Egypt.

Tools specific to Gen 41:57

Unchecked Copy Box Gen 41:57

Moreover, all the earth came to Egypt to Joseph to buy grain, because the famine was severe over all the earth.
