41:3
aliae quoque septem emergebant de flumine foedaeconfectaeque macie et pascebantur in ipsa amnis ripa in locisvirentibus

41:4
devoraveruntque eas quarum mira species et habitudocorporum erat expergefactus Pharao

41:5
rursum dormivit et vidit alterum somnium septem spicaepullulabant in culmo uno plenae atque formonsae

41:6
aliae quoque totidem spicae tenues et percussae uredineoriebantur

41:7
devorantes omnem priorum pulchritudinem evigilans postquietem

41:8
et facto mane pavore perterritus misit ad coniectoresAegypti cunctosque sapientes et accersitis narravit somnium necerat qui interpretaretur

41:9
tunc demum reminiscens pincernarum magister ait confiteorpeccatum meum

41:10
iratus rex servis suis me et magistrum pistorum retrudiiussit in carcerem principis militum

41:11
ubi una nocte uterque vidimus somnium praesagum futurorum

41:12
erat ibi puer hebraeus eiusdem ducis militum famulus cuinarrantes somnia

41:13
audivimus quicquid postea rei probavit eventus ego enimredditus sum officio meo et ille suspensus est in cruce

41:14
protinus ad regis imperium eductum de carcere Iosephtotonderunt ac veste mutata obtulerunt ei

41:15
cui ille ait vidi somnia nec est qui edisserat quae audivite prudentissime conicere

41:16
respondit Ioseph absque me Deus respondebit prosperaPharaoni

41:17
narravit ergo ille quod viderat putabam me stare superripam fluminis

41:18
et septem boves de amne conscendere pulchras nimis etobesis carnibus quae in pastu paludis virecta carpebant

41:19
et ecce has sequebantur aliae septem boves in tantumdeformes et macilentae ut numquam tales in terra Aegyptividerim

41:20
quae devoratis et consumptis prioribus

41:21
nullum saturitatis dedere vestigium sed simili macie etsqualore torpebant evigilans rursum sopore depressus

41:22
vidi somnium septem spicae pullulabant in culmo uno plenaeatque pulcherrimae

41:23
aliae quoque septem tenues et percussae uredine oriebanturstipula

41:24
quae priorum pulchritudinem devorarunt narraviconiectoribus somnium et nemo est qui edisserat

41:25
respondit Ioseph somnium regis unum est quae facturus estDeus ostendit Pharaoni

41:26
septem boves pulchrae et septem spicae plenae septemubertatis anni sunt eandemque vim somnii conprehendunt

41:27
septem quoque boves tenues atque macilentae quaeascenderunt post eas et septem spicae tenues et vento urentepercussae septem anni sunt venturae famis

41:28
qui hoc ordine conplebuntur

41:29
ecce septem anni venient fertilitatis magnae in universaterra Aegypti

41:30
quos sequentur septem anni alii tantae sterilitatis utoblivioni tradatur cuncta retro abundantia consumptura est enimfames omnem terram

41:31
et ubertatis magnitudinem perditura inopiae magnitudo

41:32
quod autem vidisti secundo ad eandem rem pertinens somniumfirmitatis indicium est eo quod fiat sermo Dei et velociusimpleatur

41:33
nunc ergo provideat rex virum sapientem et industrium etpraeficiat eum terrae Aegypti

41:36
et paretur futurae septem annorum fami quae pressura estAegyptum et non consumetur terra inopia

placuit Pharaoni consilium et cunctis ministris eius

41:38
locutusque est ad eos num invenire poterimus talem virumqui spiritu Dei plenus sit

41:39
dixit ergo ad Ioseph quia ostendit Deus tibi omnia quaelocutus es numquid sapientiorem et similem tui invenire potero

41:40
tu eris super domum meam et ad tui oris imperium cunctuspopulus oboediet uno tantum regni solio te praecedam

41:41
dicens quoque rursum Pharao ad Ioseph ecce constitui tesuper universam terram Aegypti

41:42
tulit anulum de manu sua et dedit in manu eius vestivitqueeum stola byssina et collo torquem auream circumposuit

41:43

41:44
dixit quoque rex ad Ioseph ego sum Pharao absque tuoimperio non movebit quisquam manum aut pedem in omni terraAegypti

041:001
And it came to pass at the end of two full years, that Pharaoh dreamed: and, behold, he stood by the river.

041:002
And, behold, there came up out of the river seven well favored kine and fatfleshed; and they fed in a meadow.

041:003
And, behold, seven other kine came up after them out of the river, ill favored and leanfleshed; and stood by the other kine upon the brink of the river.

041:004
And the ill favored and leanfleshed kine did eat up the seven well favored and fat kine. So Pharaoh awoke.

041:005
And he slept and dreamed the second time: and, behold, seven ears of corn came up upon one stalk, rank and good.

041:006
And, behold, seven thin ears and blasted with the east wind sprung up after them.

041:007
And the seven thin ears devoured the seven rank and full ears. And Pharaoh awoke, and, behold, it was a dream.

041:008
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.

041:009
Then spake the chief butler unto Pharaoh, saying, I do remember my faults this day:

041:010
Pharaoh was wroth with his servants, and put me in ward in the captain of the guard's house, both me and the chief baker:

041:011
And we dreamed a dream in one night, I and he; we dreamed each man according to the interpretation of his dream.

041:012
And there was there with us a young man, an 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.

041:013
And it came to pass, as he interpreted to us, so it was; me he restored unto mine office, and him he hanged.

041:014
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.

041:015
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 thou canst understand a dream to interpret it.

041:016
And Joseph answered Pharaoh, saying, It is not in me: God shall give Pharaoh an answer of peace.

041:017
And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, In my dream, behold, I stood upon the bank of the river:

041:018
And, behold, there came up out of the river seven kine, fatfleshed and well favored; and they fed in a meadow:

041:019
And, behold, seven other kine came up after them, poor and very ill favored and leanfleshed, such as I never saw in all the land of Egypt for badness:

041:020
And the lean and the ill favored kine did eat up the first seven fat kine:

041:021
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.

041:022
And I saw in my dream, and, behold, seven ears came up in one stalk, full and good:

041:023
And, behold, seven ears, withered, thin, and blasted with the east wind, sprung up after them:

041:024
And the thin ears devoured the seven good ears: and I told this unto the magicians; but there was none that could declare it to me.

041:025
And Joseph said unto Pharaoh, The dream of Pharaoh is one: God hath showed Pharaoh what he is about to do.

041:026
The seven good kine are seven years; and the seven good ears are seven years: the dream is one.

041:027
And the seven thin and ill favored kine that came up after them are seven years; and the seven empty ears blasted with the east wind shall be seven years of famine.

041:028
This is the thing which I have spoken unto Pharaoh: What God is about to do he showeth unto Pharaoh.

041:029
Behold, there come seven years of great plenty throughout all the land of Egypt:

041:030
And there shall arise after them seven years of famine; and all the plenty shall be forgotten in the land of Egypt; and the famine shall consume the land;

041:031
And the plenty shall not be known in the land by reason of that famine following; for it shall be very grievous.

041:032
And for that the dream was doubled unto Pharaoh twice; it is because the thing is established by God, and God will shortly bring it to pass.

041:033
Now therefore let Pharaoh look out a man discreet and wise, and set him over the land of Egypt.

041:034
Let Pharaoh do this, and let him appoint officers over the land, and take up the fifth part of the land of Egypt in the seven plenteous years.

041:035
And let them gather all the food of those good years that come, and lay up corn under the hand of Pharaoh, and let them keep food in the cities.

041:036
And that food shall be for store to the land against the seven years of famine, which shall be in the land of Egypt; that the land perish not through the famine.

041:037
And the thing was good in the eyes of Pharaoh, and in the eyes of all his servants.

041:038
And Pharaoh said unto his servants, Can we find such a one as this is, a man in whom the Spirit of God is?

041:039
And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, Forasmuch as God hath showed thee all this, there is none so discreet and wise as thou art:

041:040
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.

041:041
And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, See, I have set thee over all the land of Egypt.

041:042
And Pharaoh took off his ring from his hand, and put it upon Joseph's hand, and arrayed him in vestures of fine linen, and put a gold chain about his neck;

041:043
And he made him to ride in the second chariot which he had; and they cried before him, Bow the knee: and he made him ruler over all the land of Egypt.

041:044
And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, I am Pharaoh, and without thee shall no man lift up his hand or foot in all the land of Egypt.

041:045
And Pharaoh called Joseph's name Zaphnathpaaneah; and he gave him to wife Asenath the daughter of Potipherah priest of On. And Joseph went out over all the land of Egypt.

041:046
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.

041:047
And in the seven plenteous years the earth brought forth by handfuls.

041:048
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.

041:049
And Joseph gathered corn as the sand of the sea, very much, until he left numbering; for it was without number.

041:050
And unto Joseph were born two sons before the years of famine came, which Asenath the daughter of Potipherah priest of On bare unto him.

041:051
And Joseph called the name of the firstborn Manasseh: For God, said he, hath made me forget all my toil, and all my father's house.

041:052
And the name of the second called he Ephraim: For God hath caused me to be fruitful in the land of my affliction.

041:053
And the seven years of plenteousness, that was in the land of Egypt, were ended.

041:054
And the seven years of dearth began to come, according as Joseph had said: and the dearth was in all lands; but in all the land of Egypt there was bread.

041:055
And when all the land of Egypt was famished, the people cried to Pharaoh for bread: and Pharaoh said unto all the Egyptians, Go unto Joseph; what he saith to you, do.

041:056
And the famine was over all the face of the earth: and Joseph opened all the storehouses, and sold unto the Egyptians; and the famine waxed sore in the land of Egypt.

041:057
And all countries came into Egypt to Joseph for to buy corn; because that the famine was so sore in all lands.
