41:2 And, behold, there came up out of the river seven kine, well-favored and fat-fleshed; and they fed in the reed-grass.
41:3 And, behold, seven other kine came up after them out of the river, ill-favored and lean-fleshed, and stood by the other kine upon the brink of the river.
41:4 And the ill-favored and lean-fleshed kine did eat up the seven well-favored and fat kine. So Pharaoh awoke.
41:6 And, behold, seven ears, thin and blasted with the east wind, sprung up after them.
41:7 And the thin ears swallowed up the seven rank and full ears. And Pharaoh awoke, and, behold, it was a dream.
41:8 And it came to pass in the morning that his spirit was troubled; and he sent and called for all the magicians of Egypt, and all the wise men thereof: and Pharaoh told them his dream; but there was none that could interpret them unto Pharaoh.
41:9 Then spake the chief butler unto Pharaoh, saying, I do remember my faults this day:
41:10 Pharaoh was wroth with his servants, and put me in ward in the house of the captain of the guard, me and the chief baker:
41:12 And there was with us there a young man, a Hebrew, servant to the captain of the guard; and we told him, and he interpreted to us our dreams; to each man according to his dream he did interpret.
41:14 Then Pharaoh sent and called Joseph, and they brought him hastily out of the dungeon: and he shaved himself, and changed his raiment, and came in unto Pharaoh.
41:15 And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, I have dreamed a dream, and there is none that can interpret it: and I have heard say of thee, that when thou hearest a dream thou canst interpret it.
41:16 And Joseph answered Pharaoh, saying, It is not in me: God will give Pharaoh an answer of peace.
41:17 And Pharaoh spake unto Joseph, In my dream, behold, I stood upon the brink of the river:
41:18 and, behold, there came up out of the river seven kine, fat-fleshed and well-favored: and they fed in the reed-grass:
41:19 and, behold, seven other kine came up after them, poor and very ill-favored and lean-fleshed, such as I never saw in all the land of Egypt for badness:
41:20 and the lean and ill-favored kine did eat up the first seven fat kine:
41:21 and when they had eaten them up, it could not be known that they had eaten them; but they were still ill-favored, as at the beginning. So I awoke.
41:22 And I saw in my dream, and, behold, seven ears came up upon one stalk, full and good:
41:23 and, behold, seven ears, withered, thin, [and] blasted with the east wind, sprung up after them:
41:24 and the thin ears swallowed up the seven good ears: and I told it unto the magicians; but there was none that could declare it to me.
41:25 And Joseph said unto Pharaoh, The dream of Pharaoh is one: what God is about to do he hath declared unto Pharaoh.
41:26 The seven good kine are seven years; and the seven good ears are seven years: the dream is one.
41:27 And the seven lean and ill-favored kine that came up after them are seven years, and also the seven empty ears blasted with the east wind; they shall be seven years of famine.
41:28 That is the thing which I spake unto Pharaoh: what God is about to do he hath showed unto Pharaoh.
41:29 Behold, there come seven years of great plenty throughout all the land of Egypt:
41:31 and the plenty shall not be known in the land by reason of that famine which followeth; for it shall be very grievous.
41:38 And Pharaoh said unto his servants, Can we find such a one as this, a man in whom the spirit of God is?
41:39 And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, Forasmuch as God hath showed thee all of this, there is none so discreet and wise as thou:
41:40 thou shalt be over my house, and according unto thy word shall all my people be ruled: only in the throne will I be greater than thou.
41:46 And Joseph was thirty years old when he stood before Pharaoh king of Egypt. And Joseph went out from the presence of Pharaoh, and went throughout all the land of Egypt.
41:47 And in the seven plenteous years the earth brought forth by handfuls.
41:48 And he gathered up all the food of the seven years which were in the land of Egypt, and laid up the food in the cities: the food of the field, which was round about every city, laid he up in the same.
41:50 And unto Joseph were born two sons before the year of famine came, whom Asenath, the daughter of Potiphera priest of On, bare unto him.
41:51 And Joseph called the name of the first-born Manasseh: For, [said he], God hath made me forget all my toil, and all my father`s house.
41:53 And the seven years of plenty, that was in the land of Egypt, came to an end.
41:57 And all countries came into Egypt to Joseph to buy grain, because the famine was sore in all the earth.
