Good News Translation (GNT) New International Version (NIV)
1 After two years had passed, the king of Egypt dreamed that he was standing by the Nile River, 1 When two full years had passed, Pharaoh had a dream: He was standing by the Nile,
2 when seven cows, fat and sleek, came up out of the river and began to feed on the grass. 2 when out of the river there came up seven cows, sleek and fat, and they grazed among the reeds.
3 Then seven other cows came up; they were thin and bony. They came and stood by the other cows on the riverbank, 3 After them, seven other cows, ugly and gaunt, came up out of the Nile and stood beside those on the riverbank.
4 and the thin cows ate up the fat cows. Then the king woke up. 4 And the cows that were ugly and gaunt ate up the seven sleek, fat cows. Then Pharaoh woke up.
5 He fell asleep again and had another dream. Seven heads of grain, full and ripe, were growing on one stalk. 5 He fell asleep again and had a second dream: Seven heads of grain, healthy and good, were growing on a single stalk.
6 Then seven other heads of grain sprouted, thin and scorched by the desert wind, 6 After them, seven other heads of grain sprouted--thin and scorched by the east wind.
