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