add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

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

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

20 And the lean and the ill favoured kine did eat up the first seven fat kine:

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

21 And when they had eaten them up, it could not be known that they had eaten them; but they were still ill favoured, as at the beginning. So I awoke.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

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

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

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

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

27 And the seven thin and ill favoured 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.

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

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

30 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;

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

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

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

32 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.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

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

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

34 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.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

35 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.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

36 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.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

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

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

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

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

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.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

42 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;

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

43 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.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

44 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.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

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.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

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

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

50 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.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

51 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.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

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

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

55 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.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

56 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.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

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