It happened at the end of two full years, that Pharaoh dreamed: and, behold, he stood by the river.
Behold, there came up out of the river seven cattle, well-favored and fat-fleshed, and they fed in the reed-grass.
Behold, seven other cattle came up after them out of the river, ill-favored and lean-fleshed, and stood by the other cattle on the brink of the river.
The ill-favored and lean-fleshed cattle ate up the seven well-favored and fat cattle. So Pharaoh awoke.
He slept and dreamed a second time: and, behold, seven ears of grain came up on one stalk, rank and good.
Behold, seven ears, thin and blasted with the east wind, sprung up after them.
