PRISONER WHO BECAME A MIGHTY RULER


Two years later Pharaoh had a dream: as he stood by the river Nile, he saw coming up from
the water seven cows, well fed and fat, for they had been feeding in the river grass. Then
seven other[30] cows came up after them out of the Nile, poorly fed and thin, and they stood
by the other cows on the bank of the Nile. The poorly fed, lean cows ate up the seven
well-fed, fat cows. Then Pharaoh awoke.
Afterward he slept and had a second dream and saw seven ears, plump and good, growing
up on one stalk. Also seven ears, thin and withered by the east wind, grew up after them.
The thin ears swallowed up the seven plump, full ears. Then Pharaoh awoke, and knew that
it was only a dream.
In the morning Pharaoh was worried. So he sent for all the magicians and wise men of
Egypt and told them his dreams; but no one could tell him what they meant.
Then the chief butler said to Pharaoh, "I now remember my sins: Pharaoh was very angry
with his servants and put me and the chief baker in prison in the house of the captain of the
guard. We both had dreams the same night, each with a different meaning. There was also
with us a young Hebrew, a servant of the captain of the guard. We told him our dreams and
he told each of us what our dreams meant. And our dreams came true just as he said they
would: I was restored to my office, but the chief baker was hanged."
Then Pharaoh sent for Joseph, and they quickly brought him out of the dungeon; and he
shaved his face, changed his clothes, and came to Pharaoh. Pharaoh said to Joseph, "I
have had a dream, and there is no one who can tell what it means. Now I have heard that
when you hear a dream, you can tell what it means." Joseph answered Pharaoh, "Not I;
God alone can give Pharaoh a true answer."
Then Pharaoh said to Joseph, "In my dream as I stood on the bank of the Nile, I saw seven
cows, fat and well fed, which had been feeding in the river grass. There came up after them
seven more cows, poorly fed and thin, worse than I ever saw in all the land of Egypt; and
the lean and poorly fed cows ate up the first seven fat cows. When they had eaten them up,
one could not tell that they had eaten them, for they were still as thin as at the beginning.
Then I awoke.
"Again I dreamed and saw seven ears, plump and good, grow up on one stalk; then seven
thin ears, withered with the east wind, sprang up after them; and the thin ears swallowed up
the seven good ears. I have told the dream to the magicians, but there is no one who can
tell me what it means."[31]
Then Joseph said to Pharaoh, "Pharaoh's two dreams mean the same thing; God has made
known to Pharaoh what he is about to do. The seven good cows are seven years, and the
seven good ears are seven years. It is one dream. The seven lean and poorly fed cows that
came up after them are seven years, and the seven empty ears withered with the east wind
mean seven years of famine. That is why I said to Pharaoh, 'God has shown to Pharaoh
what he is about to do.' Seven years of great plenty all through the land of Egypt are
coming. They shall be followed by seven years of famine, so that all the plenty will be
forgotten in the land of Egypt. The famine will use up all that the land produces; and plenty
will not be known in the land because of that famine which follows, for it will be very severe.

"The dream came twice to Pharaoh to show that the famine will surely come, and that God
will soon make the dream come true. Now therefore let Pharaoh pick out a man who is
sensible and wise and place him in charge of the land of Egypt. Let Pharaoh act quickly and
put overseers over the land and collect one-fifth of all that grows in the land of Egypt in the
seven years of plenty. Let them gather all the food of these good years that are coming and
store up grain under the authority of Pharaoh, and let them hold it in the cities for food. The
food will supply the land during the seven years of famine which shall be in the land of
Egypt, so that the people of the land may not die because of the famine."
The plan pleased Pharaoh and all his people; and he said to his people, "Can we find one
like this, a man in whom is the spirit of God?" So Pharaoh said to Joseph, "As God has
shown you all this, there is no one so sensible and wise as you. You shall be at the head of
my country, and all my people shall be ruled as you command. Only on the throne I will be
above you."
So Pharaoh said to Joseph, "See, I have placed you over all the land of Egypt." And
Pharaoh took off his signet-ring from his finger and put it upon Joseph's finger and clothed
him in garments of fine linen and put a golden collar about his neck. He also made him ride
in the second chariot which he had; and they cried before him, "Attention!" So he placed
him over all the land of Egypt. Pharaoh also said to Joseph, "I am Pharaoh, but without your
consent no man shall lift up his hand or his foot in all the land of Egypt." Pharaoh gave him
as a wife Asenath, the daughter of[32] Potiphera. And Joseph was thirty years old when he
was made the ruler of the land of Egypt.
In the seven years of plenty there were large harvests, and Joseph gathered up all the food
of the seven years of plenty, which were in the land of Egypt, and stored the food in the
cities, putting in each city the food that grew in the fields about it. Joseph stored up grain as
the sand of the sea, in great quantities, until he no longer kept account, because it could not
be measured.
When the seven years of plenty in the land of Egypt were over, the seven years of famine
began, as Joseph had said. There was famine in all lands, but all through the land of Egypt
there was food, for when all the land of Egypt was hungry, the people cried to Pharaoh for
bread, and Pharaoh said to all the Egyptians, "Go to Joseph and do what he tells you." So
when the famine was over all the country, Joseph opened all the storehouses and sold food
to the Egyptians: but the famine was severe in the land of Egypt. The peoples of all lands
came to Joseph in Egypt to buy grain, for everywhere the famine was severe.

Please ignore and avoid this drug-addled loser, g000dbuddy. His only outlets are bong hits and this floundering site, where he's spent literally years driving decent people, Christians no less, off and away from it.

Just keep posting the way you do, 666 is a jealous old Nelly because you're getting views. What a petty girly man he is, indeed.

God bless you for bring the Word to this site. You are needed.
