Or was repeated to him under different figures and images:
[it is] because the thing [is] established by
by a firm decree of his, and is sure, and will most certainly be

him of it was the repetition of the dream made: and God
will shortly bring it to pass:
or "make haste to do it" F15, that is, would soon begin to
accomplish these events; for, as Bishop Usher F16
observes, from the harvest of this (the then present) year, the
seven years of plenty are reckoned.
