Genesis 41

YLT 1 And it cometh to pass, at the end of two years of days that Pharaoh is dreaming, and lo, he is standing by the River, NIV 1 When two full years had passed, Pharaoh had a dream: He was standing by the Nile, YLT 2 and lo, from the River coming up are seven kine, of fair appearance, and fat [in] flesh, and they feed among the reeds; NIV 2 when out of the river there came up seven cows, sleek and fat, and they grazed among the reeds. YLT 3 and lo, seven other kine are coming up after them out of the River, of bad appearance, and lean [in] flesh, and they stand near the kine on the edge of the River, NIV 3 After them, seven other cows, ugly and gaunt, came up out of the Nile and stood beside those on the riverbank. YLT 4 and the kine of bad appearance and lean [in] flesh eat up the seven kine of fair appearance, and fat -- and Pharaoh awaketh. NIV 4 And the cows that were ugly and gaunt ate up the seven sleek, fat cows. Then Pharaoh woke up. YLT 5 And he sleepeth, and dreameth a second time, and lo, seven ears are coming up on one stalk, fat and good, NIV 5 He fell asleep again and had a second dream: Seven heads of grain, healthy and good, were growing on a single stalk. YLT 6 and lo, seven ears, thin, and blasted with an east wind, are springing up after them; NIV 6 After them, seven other heads of grain sprouted--thin and scorched by the east wind. YLT 7 and the thin ears swallow the seven fat and full ears -- and Pharaoh awaketh, and lo, a dream. NIV 7 The thin heads of grain swallowed up the seven healthy, full heads. Then Pharaoh woke up; it had been a dream. YLT 8 And it cometh to pass in the morning, that his spirit is moved, and he sendeth and calleth all the scribes of Egypt, and all its wise men, and Pharaoh recounteth to them his dream, and there is no interpreter of them to Pharaoh. NIV 8 In the morning his mind was troubled, so he sent for all the magicians and wise men of Egypt. Pharaoh told them his dreams, but no one could interpret them for him. YLT 9 And the chief of the butlers speaketh with Pharaoh, saying, `My sin I mention this day: NIV 9 Then the chief cupbearer said to Pharaoh, "Today I am reminded of my shortcomings. YLT 10 Pharaoh hath been wroth against his servants, and giveth me into charge in the house of the chief of the executioners, me and the chief of the bakers; NIV 10 Pharaoh was once angry with his servants, and he imprisoned me and the chief baker in the house of the captain of the guard. YLT 11 and we dream a dream in one night, I and he, each according to the interpretation of his dream we have dreamed. NIV 11 Each of us had a dream the same night, and each dream had a meaning of its own. YLT 12 And there [is] with us a youth, a Hebrew, servant to the chief of the executioners, and we recount to him, and he interpreteth to us our dreams, [to] each according to his dream hath he interpreted, NIV 12 Now a young Hebrew was there with us, a servant of the captain of the guard. We told him our dreams, and he interpreted them for us, giving each man the interpretation of his dream. YLT 13 and it cometh to pass, as he hath interpreted to us so it hath been, me he put back on my station, and him he hanged.' NIV 13 And things turned out exactly as he interpreted them to us: I was restored to my position, and the other man was hanged." YLT 14 And Pharaoh sendeth and calleth Joseph, and they cause him to run out of the pit, and he shaveth, and changeth his garments, and cometh in unto Pharaoh. NIV 14 So Pharaoh sent for Joseph, and he was quickly brought from the dungeon. When he had shaved and changed his clothes, he came before Pharaoh. YLT 15 And Pharaoh saith unto Joseph, `A dream I have dreamed, and there is no interpreter of it, and I -- I have heard concerning thee, saying, Thou understandest a dream to interpret it,' NIV 15 Pharaoh said to Joseph, "I had a dream, and no one can interpret it. But I have heard it said of you that when you hear a dream you can interpret it." YLT 16 and Joseph answereth Pharaoh, saying, `Without me -- God doth answer Pharaoh with peace.' NIV 16 "I cannot do it," Joseph replied to Pharaoh, "but God will give Pharaoh the answer he desires." YLT 17 And Pharaoh speaketh unto Joseph: `In my dream, lo, I am standing by the edge of the River, NIV 17 Then Pharaoh said to Joseph, "In my dream I was standing on the bank of the Nile, YLT 18 and lo, out of the River coming up are seven kine, fat [in] flesh, and of fair form, and they feed among the reeds; NIV 18 when out of the river there came up seven cows, fat and sleek, and they grazed among the reeds. YLT 19 and lo, seven other kine are coming up after them, thin, and of very bad form, and lean [in] flesh; I have not seen like these in all the land of Egypt for badness. NIV 19 After them, seven other cows came up--scrawny and very ugly and lean. I had never seen such ugly cows in all the land of Egypt. YLT 20 `And the lean and the bad kine eat up the first seven fat kine, NIV 20 The lean, ugly cows ate up the seven fat cows that came up first. YLT 21 and they come in unto their midst, and it hath not been known that they have come in unto their midst, and their appearance [is] bad as at the commencement; and I awake. NIV 21 But even after they ate them, no one could tell that they had done so; they looked just as ugly as before. Then I woke up. YLT 22 `And I see in my dream, and lo, seven ears are coming up on one stalk, full and good; NIV 22 "In my dreams I also saw seven heads of grain, full and good, growing on a single stalk. YLT 23 and lo, seven ears, withered, thin, blasted with an east wind, are springing up after them; NIV 23 After them, seven other heads sprouted--withered and thin and scorched by the east wind. YLT 24 and the thin ears swallow the seven good ears; and I tell unto the scribes, and there is none declaring to me.' NIV 24 The thin heads of grain swallowed up the seven good heads. I told this to the magicians, but none could explain it to me." YLT 25 And Joseph saith unto Pharaoh, `The dream of Pharaoh is one: that which God is doing he hath declared to Pharaoh; NIV 25 Then Joseph said to Pharaoh, "The dreams of Pharaoh are one and the same. God has revealed to Pharaoh what he is about to do. YLT 26 the seven good kine are seven years, and the seven good ears are seven years, the dream is one; NIV 26 The seven good cows are seven years, and the seven good heads of grain are seven years; it is one and the same dream. YLT 27 and the seven thin and bad kine which are coming up after them are seven years, and the seven empty ears, blasted with an east wind, are seven years of famine; NIV 27 The seven lean, ugly cows that came up afterward are seven years, and so are the seven worthless heads of grain scorched by the east wind: They are seven years of famine. YLT 28 this [is] the thing which I have spoken unto Pharaoh: That which God is doing, he hath shewn Pharaoh. NIV 28 "It is just as I said to Pharaoh: God has shown Pharaoh what he is about to do. YLT 29 `Lo, seven years are coming of great abundance in all the land of Egypt, NIV 29 Seven years of great abundance are coming throughout the land of Egypt, YLT 30 and seven years of famine have arisen after them, and all the plenty is forgotten in the land of Egypt, and the famine hath finished the land, NIV 30 but seven years of famine will follow them. Then all the abundance in Egypt will be forgotten, and the famine will ravage the land. YLT 31 and the plenty is not known in the land because of that famine afterwards, for it [is] very grievous. NIV 31 The abundance in the land will not be remembered, because the famine that follows it will be so severe. YLT 32 `And because of the repeating of the dream unto Pharaoh twice, surely the thing is established by God, and God is hastening to do it. NIV 32 The reason the dream was given to Pharaoh in two forms is that the matter has been firmly decided by God, and God will do it soon. YLT 33 `And now, let Pharaoh provide a man, intelligent and wise, and set him over the land of Egypt; NIV 33 "And now let Pharaoh look for a discerning and wise man and put him in charge of the land of Egypt. YLT 34 let Pharaoh make and appoint overseers over the land, and receive a fifth of the land of Egypt in the seven years of plenty, NIV 34 Let Pharaoh appoint commissioners over the land to take a fifth of the harvest of Egypt during the seven years of abundance. YLT 35 and they gather all the food of these good years that are coming, and heap up corn under the hand of Pharaoh -- food in the cities; and they have kept [it], NIV 35 They should collect all the food of these good years that are coming and store up the grain under the authority of Pharaoh, to be kept in the cities for food. YLT 36 and the food hath been for a store for the land, for the seven years of famine which are in the land of Egypt; and the land is cut off by the famine.' NIV 36 This food should be held in reserve for the country, to be used during the seven years of famine that will come upon Egypt, so that the country may not be ruined by the famine." YLT 37 And the thing is good in the eyes of Pharaoh, and in the eyes of all his servants, NIV 37 The plan seemed good to Pharaoh and to all his officials. YLT 38 and Pharaoh saith unto his servants, `Do we find like this, a man in whom the spirit of God [is]?' NIV 38 So Pharaoh asked them, "Can we find anyone like this man, one in whom is the spirit of God ?" YLT 39 and Pharaoh saith unto Joseph, `After God's causing thee to know all this, there is none intelligent and wise as thou; NIV 39 Then Pharaoh said to Joseph, "Since God has made all this known to you, there is no one so discerning and wise as you. YLT 40 thou -- thou art over my house, and at thy mouth do all my people kiss; only in the throne I am greater than thou.' NIV 40 You shall be in charge of my palace, and all my people are to submit to your orders. Only with respect to the throne will I be greater than you." YLT 41 And Pharaoh saith unto Joseph, `See, I have put thee over all the land of Egypt.' NIV 41 So Pharaoh said to Joseph, "I hereby put you in charge of the whole land of Egypt." YLT 42 And Pharaoh turneth aside his seal-ring from off his hand, and putteth it on the hand of Joseph, and clotheth him [with] garments of fine linen, and placeth a chain of gold on his neck, NIV 42 Then Pharaoh took his signet ring from his finger and put it on Joseph's finger. He dressed him in robes of fine linen and put a gold chain around his neck. YLT 43 and causeth him to ride in the second chariot which he hath, and they proclaim before him, `Bow the knee!' and -- to put him over all the land of Egypt. NIV 43 He had him ride in a chariot as his second-in-command, and men shouted before him, "Make way !" Thus he put him in charge of the whole land of Egypt. YLT 44 And Pharaoh saith unto Joseph, `I [am] Pharaoh, and without thee a man doth not lift up his hand and his foot in all the land of Egypt;' NIV 44 Then Pharaoh said to Joseph, "I am Pharaoh, but without your word no one will lift hand or foot in all Egypt." YLT 45 and Pharaoh calleth Joseph's name Zaphnath-Paaneah, and he giveth to him Asenath daughter of Poti-Pherah, priest of On, for a wife, and Joseph goeth out over the land of Egypt. NIV 45 Pharaoh gave Joseph the name Zaphenath-Paneah and gave him Asenath daughter of Potiphera, priest of On, to be his wife. And Joseph went throughout the land of Egypt. YLT 46 And Joseph [is] a son of thirty years in his standing before Pharaoh king of Egypt, and Joseph goeth out from the presence of Pharaoh, and passeth over through all the land of Egypt; NIV 46 Joseph was thirty years old when he entered the service of Pharaoh king of Egypt. And Joseph went out from Pharaoh's presence and traveled throughout Egypt. YLT 47 and the land maketh in the seven years of plenty by handfuls. NIV 47 During the seven years of abundance the land produced plentifully. YLT 48 And he gathereth all the food of the seven years which have been in the land of Egypt, and putteth food in the cities; the food of the field which [is] round about [each] city hath he put in its midst; NIV 48 Joseph collected all the food produced in those seven years of abundance in Egypt and stored it in the cities. In each city he put the food grown in the fields surrounding it. YLT 49 and Joseph gathereth corn as sand of the sea, multiplying exceedingly, until that he hath ceased to number, for there is no number. NIV 49 Joseph stored up huge quantities of grain, like the sand of the sea; it was so much that he stopped keeping records because it was beyond measure. YLT 50 And to Joseph were born two sons before the year of famine cometh, whom Asenath daughter of Poti-Pherah, priest of On, hath borne to him, NIV 50 Before the years of famine came, two sons were born to Joseph by Asenath daughter of Potiphera, priest of On. YLT 51 and Joseph calleth the name of the first-born Manasseh: `for, God hath made me to forget all my labour, and all the house of my father;' NIV 51 Joseph named his firstborn Manasseh and said, "It is because God has made me forget all my trouble and all my father's household." YLT 52 and the name of the second he hath called Ephraim: `for, God hath caused me to be fruitful in the land of mine affliction.' NIV 52 The second son he named Ephraim and said, "It is because God has made me fruitful in the land of my suffering." YLT 53 And the seven years of plenty are completed which have been in the land of Egypt, NIV 53 The seven years of abundance in Egypt came to an end, YLT 54 and the seven years of famine begin to come, as Joseph said, and famine is in all the lands, but in all the land of Egypt hath been bread; NIV 54 and the seven years of famine began, just as Joseph had said. There was famine in all the other lands, but in the whole land of Egypt there was food. YLT 55 and all the land of Egypt is famished, and the people crieth unto Pharaoh for bread, and Pharaoh saith to all the Egyptians, `Go unto Joseph; that which he saith to you -- do.' NIV 55 When all Egypt began to feel the famine, the people cried to Pharaoh for food. Then Pharaoh told all the Egyptians, "Go to Joseph and do what he tells you." YLT 56 And the famine has been over all the face of the land, and Joseph openeth all [places] which have [corn] in them, and selleth to the Egyptians; and the famine is severe in the land of Egypt, NIV 56 When the famine had spread over the whole country, Joseph opened the storehouses and sold grain to the Egyptians, for the famine was severe throughout Egypt. YLT 57 and all the earth hath come to Egypt, to buy, unto Joseph, for the famine was severe in all the earth. NIV 57 And all the countries came to Egypt to buy grain from Joseph, because the famine was severe in all the world.
