And, behold, there came up out of the river seven well favoured kine and fatfleshed; and they fed in a meadow.
And the ill favoured and leanfleshed kine did eat up the seven well favoured and fat kine. So Pharaoh awoke.
And, behold, there came up out of the river seven kine, fatfleshed and well favoured; and they fed in a meadow:
And the lean and the ill favoured kine did eat up the first seven fat kine:
Ye eat the fat, and ye clothe you with the wool, ye kill them that are fed: but ye feed not the flock.
Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD unto them; Behold, I, even I, will judge between the fat cattle and between the lean cattle.
I will seek that which was lost, and bring again that which was driven away, and will bind up that which was broken, and will strengthen that which was sick: but I will destroy the fat and the strong; I will feed them with judgment.
For, lo, I will raise up a shepherd in the land, which shall not visit those that be cut off, neither shall seek the young one, nor heal that that is broken, nor feed that that standeth still: but he shall eat the flesh of the fat, and tear their claws in pieces.
And bring hither the fatted calf, and kill it; and let us eat, and be merry:
And he said unto him, Thy brother is come; and thy father hath killed the fatted calf, because he hath received him safe and sound.
But as soon as this thy son was come, which hath devoured thy living with harlots, thou hast killed for him the fatted calf.
