King James Version (KJV) New International Version (NIV)
1 And it came to pass at the end of two full years, that Pharaoh dreamed : and, behold, he stood by the river. 1 When two full years had passed, Pharaoh had a dream: He was standing by the Nile,
2 And, behold, there came up out of the river seven well favoured kine and fatfleshed ; and they fed in a meadow. 2 when out of the river there came up seven cows, sleek and fat, and they grazed among the reeds.
3 And, behold, seven other kine came up after them out of the river, ill favoured and leanfleshed ; and stood by the other kine upon the brink of the river. 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 ill favoured and leanfleshed kine did eat up the seven well favoured and fat kine. So Pharaoh awoke . 4 And the cows that were ugly and gaunt ate up the seven sleek, fat cows. Then Pharaoh woke up.
5 And he slept and dreamed the second time: and, behold, seven ears of corn came up upon one stalk, rank and good. 5 He fell asleep again and had a second dream: Seven heads of grain, healthy and good, were growing on a single stalk.
6 And, behold, seven thin ears and blasted with the east wind sprung up after them. 6 After them, seven other heads of grain sprouted--thin and scorched by the east wind.
