Joseph Interprets Pharaoh's Dreams
25At this, Joseph said to Pharaoh, “The dreams of Pharaoh are one and the same.

The dreams have the same meaning. 27Moreover, the seven thin, ugly cows that came up after them are seven years, and so are the seven worthless heads of grain scorched by the east wind—they are seven years of famine.…

Verses 26-32. - Proceeding with the interpretation of the dream, Joseph explains to Pharaoh that the seven good kine and the seven full ears point to a succession of seven years of great plenty throughout all the land of Egypt which were already coming (ver. 29), after which there should arise seven years of famine, in which all the plenty should be forgotten in the land, and the famine should consume, or make an end of, the land (ver. 30), and the plenty should not be known in the land by reason of (literally, from the face of, used of the efficient cause of anything, hence on account of) that famine following - literally, the famine, that one, after (things have happened) so; adding (ver. 32), And for that the dream was doubled unto Pharaoh twice (literally, and as for the doubling of the dream to Pharaoh twice); it is because the thing is established by God, - literally, the word(or thing spoken of) is firmly fixed, i.e. certainly decreed, by the Elohim - and God will shortly bring it to pass - literally, and hastening (is) the Elohim to do it.
