Now it happened at the end of two fullyears that Pharaohhad a dream, and behold, he was standing by the Nile.
And lo, from the Nile there came up sevencows, sleek and afat; and they grazed in the 1marshgrass.
Then behold, sevenothercowscame up after them from the Nile, ugly and bgaunt , and they stood by the other cows on the bank of the Nile.
The ugly and cgauntcowsate up the sevensleek and fatcows. Then Pharaohawoke.
He fellasleep and dreamed a secondtime; and behold, sevenears of graincame up on a singlestalk, plump and good.
Then behold, sevenears, thin and scorched by the eastwind, sprouted up after them.
The thinearsswallowed up the sevenplump and fullears. Then Pharaohawoke, and behold, it was a dream.
Now in the morning2his spirit was troubled, so he sent and called for all the d3magicians of Egypt, and all its 4wisemen. And Pharaohtold them his edreams, but 5there was noone who could interpret them to Pharaoh.
Then the chiefcupbearerspoke to Pharaoh, saying, "I would make mentiontoday of 6my own foffenses.
10"Pharaoh was 7furious with his servants, and 8he put me in confinement in the house of the captain of the bodyguard, both me and the chiefbaker.
"9We had a dreamgon the samenight, hhe and I; each of us dreamed according to the interpretation of his own dream.
"Now a Hebrewyouth was with us there, a 10servant of the captain of the bodyguard, and we related them to him, and 11he interpreted our dreams for us. To eachone he interpreted according to his own dream.
"And just12as he interpreted for us, so it happened; he restored me in my ioffice, but he hanged him."
