Genesis 41:29 Meaning and Commentary

Genesis 41:29

Behold, there come seven years of great plenty throughout all
the land of Egypt.
] Not only a sufficiency but an abundance, even to luxury, as when the Nile rose to sixteen cubits, as Pliny observes F13; which, though a natural cause, was owing to God, and that it should thus overflow for seven years successively, and cause such a continued plenty, can be ascribed to no other.
