Bible: Genesis 47:9; 45:11; 41:26-27; 41:46; 30:22
47:9 Jacob said to Pharaoh, “All 1 the years of my travels 2 are 130. All 3 the years of my life have been few and painful; 4 the years of my travels are not as long as those of my ancestors.” 5
45:11 I will provide you with food 1 there because there will be five more years of famine. Otherwise you would become poor – you, your household, and everyone who belongs to you.”’
41:26 The seven good cows represent seven years, and the seven good heads of grain represent seven years. Both dreams have the same meaning. 1 41:27 The seven lean, bad-looking cows that came up after them represent seven years, as do the seven empty heads of grain burned with the east wind. They represent 2 seven years of famine.
