that were in Mizraim, the city of Egypt, as well as those
from Goshen, Raamses, Zoan, and the whole country of
Egypt, and with them came the princes, officers, and servants
of the king from all the cities of the land.
To all these the king narrated his dreams, but none could
interpret them to his satisfaction. Some said that the seven
fat kine were the seven legitimate kings that would rule over
Egypt, and the seven lean kine betokened seven princes that
would rise up against these seven kings and exterminate
them. The seven good ears of corn were the seven superior
princes of Egypt that would engage in a war for their overlord,
and would be defeated by as many insignificant princes,
who were betokened by the seven blasted ears.
