New King James Version (NKJV) New International Version (NIV)
1 Then it came to pass, at the end of two full years, that Pharaoh had a dream; 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 Suddenly there came up out of the river seven cows, fine looking and fat; and they fed in the meadow. 2 when out of the river there came up seven cows, sleek and fat, and they grazed among the reeds.
3 Then behold, seven other cows came up after them out of the river, ugly and gaunt, and stood by the other cows on the bank 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 ugly and gaunt cows ate up the seven fine looking and fat cows. So Pharaoh awoke. 4 And the cows that were ugly and gaunt ate up the seven sleek, fat cows. Then Pharaoh woke up.
5 He slept and dreamed a second time; and suddenly seven heads of grain came up on one stalk, plump 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 Then behold, seven thin heads, blighted by the east wind, sprang up after them. 6 After them, seven other heads of grain sprouted--thin and scorched by the east wind.
