Now there was no
food in all the land, because the famine was very severe, so that the land of Egypt and the land of Canaan languished because of the famine.
and after them
seven years of famine will come, and all the abundance will be forgotten in the land of Egypt, and the famine will ravage the land.
So he gathered all the food of these seven years which occurred in the land of Egypt and placed the food in the cities; he placed in every city the food from its own surrounding fields.
