After two whole years, Pharaoh dreamed that he was standing by the Nile,
and there came up out of the Nile seven sleek and fat cows, and they grazed in the reed grass.
Then seven other cows, ugly and thin, came up out of the Nile after them, and stood by the other cows on the bank of the Nile.
The ugly and thin cows ate up the seven sleek and fat cows. And Pharaoh awoke.
Then he fell asleep and dreamed a second time; seven ears of grain, plump and good, were growing on one stalk.
Then seven ears, thin and blighted by the east wind, sprouted after them.
