* Genesis 41 tells the story in TheBible of the Pharoah's dream, famously interpreted by the Hebrew Joseph, concerning seven fat and seven thin cows:
-->Two years later the king[a] of Egypt dreamed he was standing beside the Nile River. 2 Suddenly, seven fat, healthy cows came up from the river and started eating grass along the bank. 3 Then seven ugly, skinny cows came up out of the river and 4 ate the fat, healthy cows. When this happened, the king woke up.
