Pharaoh's Dream

1 Now it happened at the end of two full years that Pharaoh had a dream, and behold, he was standing by the Nile. 2 And lo, from the Nile there came up seven cows, sleek and afat; and they grazed in the 1marsh grass. 3 Then behold, seven other cows came up after them from the Nile, ugly and bgaunt , and they stood by the other cows on the bank of the Nile. 4 The ugly and cgaunt cows ate up the seven sleek and fat cows. Then Pharaoh awoke. 5 He fell asleep and dreamed a second time; and behold, seven ears of grain came up on a single stalk, plump and good. 6 Then behold, seven ears, thin and scorched by the east wind, sprouted up after them. 7 The thin ears swallowed up the seven plump and full ears. Then Pharaoh awoke, and behold, it was a dream. 8 Now in the morning 2his spirit was troubled, so he sent and called for all the d3magicians of Egypt, and all its 4wise men. And Pharaoh told them his edreams, but 5there was no one who could interpret them to Pharaoh. 9 Then the chief cupbearer spoke to Pharaoh, saying, "I would make mention today 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 chief baker. 11 "9We had a dream gon the same night, hhe and I; each of us dreamed according to the interpretation of his own dream. 12 "Now a Hebrew youth 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 each one he interpreted according to his own dream. 13 "And just 12as he interpreted for us, so it happened; he restored me in my ioffice, but he hanged him."
