Genesis 41:26 Meaning and Commentary

Genesis 41:26

The seven good kine [are] seven years
Signify seven years, and these years of plenty, as appears from the antithesis in ( Genesis 41:26 ) : and the seven good ears [are] seven years;
signify the same: the dream [is] one;
for though the seven good kine were seen in one dream, the seven good ears in another, yet both dreams were one as to signification.
