Two years later the king dreamed he was standing on the bank of the Nile River.
He saw seven fat and beautiful cows come up out of the river, and they stood there, eating the grass.
Then seven more cows came up out of the river, but they were thin and ugly. They stood beside the seven beautiful cows on the bank of the Nile.
The seven thin and ugly cows ate the seven beautiful fat cows. Then the king woke up.
The king slept again and dreamed a second time. In his dream he saw seven full and good heads of grain growing on one stalk.
After that, seven more heads of grain sprang up, but they were thin and burned by the hot east wind.
