haYashar Jasher 48


1 a:

In those days, after the death of Yits'chaq (3327), Y'hovah (3068) Elohim (430) commanded and caused a famine upon the whole earth.

2 b:

At that time Pharaoh one reigning of Mits'rayim (4714) was sitting upon his throne in the land of Mits'rayim (4714), and lay in his bed and dreamed dreams, and Pharaoh saw in his dream that he was standing by the side of the river of Mits'rayim (4714).

3 g:

And whilst he was standing he saw and behold seven fat fleshed and well favored kine came up out of the river.

4 d:

And seven other kine, lean fleshed and ill favored, came up after them, and the seven ill favored ones swallowed up the well favored ones, and still their appearance was ill as at first.

5 h:

And he awoke, and he slept again and he dreamed a second time, and he saw and behold seven ears of corn came up upon one stalk, rank and good, and seven thin ears blasted with the east wind sprang, up after them, and the thin ears swallowed up the full ones, and Pharaoh awoke out of his dream.

6 w:

And in the morning the one reigning remembered his dreams, and his spirit was sadly troubled on account of his dreams, and the one reigning hastened and sent and called for all the magicians of Mits'rayim (4714), and the wise men, and they came and stood before Pharaoh.

7 z:

And the one reigning said unto them, I have dreamed dreams, and there is none to interpret them; and they said unto the one reigning, relate thy dreams to thy servants and let us hear them.

8 x:

And the one reigning related his dreams to them, and they all answered and said with one voice to the one reigning, may the one reigning live forever; and this is the interpretation of thy dreams.

9 j:

The seven good kine which thou didst see denote seven daughters that will be born unto thee in the latter days, and the seven kine which thou sawest come up after them, and swallowed them up, are for a sign that the daughters which will be born unto thee will all die in the life-time of the one reigning.

10 y:

And that which thou didst see in the second dream of seven full good ears of corn coming up upon one stalk, this is their interpretation, that thou wilt build unto thyself in the latter days seven cities throughout the land of Mits'rayim (4714) ; and that which thou sawest of the seven blasted ears of corn springing up after them and swallowing them up whilst thou didst behold them with thine eyes, is for a sign that the cities which thou wilt build will all be destroyed in the latter days, in the life-time of the one reigning.

11 ay:

And when they spoke these words the one reigning did not incline his ear to their words, neither did he fix his heart upon them, for the one reigning knew in his wisdom that they did not give a proper interpretation of the dreams; and when they had finished speaking before the one reigning, the one reigning answered them, saying, What is this thing that you have spoken unto me? surely you have uttered falsehood and spoken lies; therefore now give the proper interpretation of my dreams, that you may not die.

12 by:

And the one reigning commanded after this, and he sent and called again for other wise men, and they came and stood before the one reigning, and the one reigning related his dreams to them, and they all answered him according to the first interpretation, and the one reigning's anger was kindled and he was very wroth, and the one reigning said unto them, Surely you speak lies and utter falsehood in what you have said.

13 gy:

And the one reigning commanded that a proclamation should be issued throughout the land of Mits'rayim (4714), saying, It is resolved by the one reigning and his great men, that any wise man who knoweth and understandeth the interpretation of dreams, and will not come this day before the one reigning, shall die.

14 dy:

And the man that will declare unto the one reigning the proper interpretation of his dreams, there shall be given unto him all that he will require from the one reigning. And all the wise men of the land of Mits'rayim (4714) came before the one reigning, together with all the magicians and sorcerers that were in Mits'rayim (4714) and in Goshen (1657), in Ra'm'ses (7406), in Tachpanches (8471), in Tso'ar (6820), and in all the places on the borders of Mits'rayim (4714), and they all stood before the one reigning.

15 hj:

And all the nobles and the princes, and the attendants belonging to the one reigning, came together from all the cities of Mits'rayim (4714), and they all sat before the one reigning, and the one reigning related his dreams before the wise men, and the princes, and all that sat before the one reigning were astonished at the vision.

16 wj:

And all the wise men who were before the one reigning were greatly divided in their interpretation of his dreams; some of them interpreted them to the one reigning, saying, The seven good kine are seven ones reigning, who from the issue of the one reigning will be raised over Mits'rayim (4714).

17 zy:

And the seven bad kine are seven princes, who will stand up against them in the latter days and destroy them; and the seven ears of corn are the seven great princes belonging to Mits'rayim (4714), who will fall in the hands of the seven less powerful princes of their enemies, in the wars of our lord the one reigning.

18 xy:

And some of them interpreted to the one reigning in this manner, saying, The seven good kine are the strong cities of Mits'rayim (4714), and the seven bad kine are the seven nations of the land of K'na'an (3667), who will come against the seven cities of Mits'rayim (4714) in the latter days and destroy them.

19 jy:

And that which thou sawest in the second dream, of seven good and bad ears of corn, is a sign that the government of Mits'rayim (4714) will again return to thy seed as at first.

20 k:

And in his reign the people of the cities of Mits'rayim (4714) will turn against the seven cities of K'na'an (3667) who are stronger than they are, and will destroy them, and the government of Mits'rayim (4714) will return to thy seed.

21 ak:

And some of them said unto the one reigning, This is the interpretation of thy dreams; the seven good kine are seven queens, whom thou wilt take for wives in the latter days, and the seven bad kine denote that those women will all die in the lifetime of the one reigning.

22 bk:

And the seven good and bad ears of corn which thou didst see in the second dream are fourteen children, and it will be in the latter days that they will stand up and fight amongst themselves, and seven of them will smite the seven that are more powerful.

23 gk:

And some of them said these words unto the one reigning, saying, The seven good kine denote that seven children will be born to thee, and they will slay seven of thy children's children in the latter days; and the seven good ears of corn which thou didst see in the second dream, are those princes against whom seven other less powerful princes will fight and destroy them in the latter days, and avenge thy children's cause, and the government will again return to thy seed.

24 dk:

And the one reigning heard all the words of the wise men of Mits'rayim (4714) and their interpretation of his dreams, and none of them pleased the one reigning.

25 hk:

And the one reigning knew in his wisdom that they did not altogether speak correctly in all these words, for this was from Y'hovah (3068) Elohim (430) to frustrate the words of the wise men of Mits'rayim (4714), in order that Yoseph (3130) might go forth from the house of confinement, and in order that he should become great in Mits'rayim (4714).

26 wk:

And the one reigning saw that none amongst all the wise men and magicians of Mits'rayim (4714) spoke correctly to him, and the wrath of the one reigning was kindled, and his anger burned within him.

27 zk:

And the one reigning commanded that all the wise men and magicians should go out from before him, and they all went out from before the one reigning with shame and disgrace.

28 xk:

And the one reigning commanded that a proclamation be sent throughout Mits'rayim (4714) to slay all the magicians that were in Mits'rayim (4714), and not one of them should be suffered to live.

29 jk:

And the captains of the guards belonging to the one reigning rose up, and each man drew his sword, and they began to smite the magicians of Mits'rayim (4714), and the wise men.

30 l:

And after this Merod, chief butler to the one reigning, came and bowed down before the one reigning and sat before him.

31 al:

And the butler said unto the one reigning, May the one reigning live forever, and his government be exalted in the land.

32 bl:

Thou wast angry with thy servant in those days, now two years past, and didst place me in the ward, and I was for some time in the ward, I and the chief of the bakers.

33 gl:

And there was with us a Hebrew servant belonging to the captain of the guard, his name was Yoseph (3130), for his master had been angry with him and placed him in the house of confinement, and he attended us there.

34 dl:

And in some time after when we were in the ward, we dreamed dreams in one night, I and the chief of the bakers; we dreamed, each man according to the interpretation of his dream.

35 hl:

And we came in the morning and told them to that servant, and he interpreted to us our dreams, to each man according to his dream, did he correctly interpret.

36 wl:

And it came to pass as he interpreted to us, so was the event; there fell not to the ground any of his words.

37 zl:

And now therefore my lord and one reigning do not slay the people of Mits'rayim (4714) for naught; behold that slave is still confined in the house by the captain of the guard his master, in the house of confinement.

38 xl:

If it pleases the one reigning let him send for him that he may come before thee and he will make known to thee, the correct interpretation of the dream which thou didst dream.

39 jl:

And the one reigning heard the words of the chief butler, and the one reigning ordered that the wise men of Mits'rayim (4714) should not be slain.

40 m:

And the one reigning ordered his servants to bring Yoseph (3130) before him, and the one reigning said unto them, Go to him and do not terrify him lest he be confused and will not know to speak properly.

41 am:

And the servants of the one reigning went to Yoseph (3130), and they brought him hastily out of the dungeon, and the servants of the one reigning shaved him, and he changed his prison garment and he came before the one reigning.

42 bm:

And the one reigning was sitting upon his royal throne in a princely dress girt around with a golden ephod, and the fine gold which was upon it sparkled, and the carbuncle and the ruby and the emerald, together with all the precious stones that were upon the one reigning's head, dazzled the eye, and Yoseph (3130) wondered greatly at the one reigning.

43 gm:

And the throne upon which the one reigning sat was covered with gold and silver, and with onyx stones, and it had seventy steps.

44 dm:

And it was their custom throughout the land of Mits'rayim (4714), that every man who came to speak to the one reigning, if he was a prince or one that was estimable in the sight of the one reigning, he ascended to the one reigning's throne as far as the thirty-first step, and the one reigning would descend to the thirty-sixth step, and speak with him.

45 hm:

If he was one of the common people, he ascended to the third step, and the one reigning would descend to the fourth and speak to him, and their custom was, moreover, that any man who understood to speak in all the seventy languages, he ascended the seventy steps, and went up and spoke till he reached the one reigning.

46 wm:

And any man who could not complete the seventy, he ascended as many steps as the languages which he knew to speak in.

47 zm:

And it was customary in those days in Mits'rayim (4714) that no one should reign over them, but who understood to speak in the seventy languages.

48 xm:

And when Yoseph (3130) came before the one reigning he bowed down to the ground before the one reigning, and he ascended to the third step, and the one reigning sat upon the fourth step and spoke with Yoseph (3130).

49 jm:

And the one reigning said unto Yoseph (3130), I dreamed a dream, and there is no interpreter to interpret it properly, and I commanded this day that all the magicians of Mits'rayim (4714) and the wise men thereof, should come before me, and I related my dreams to them, and no one has properly interpreted them to me.

50 n:

And after this I this day heard concerning thee, that thou art a wise man, and canst correctly interpret every dream that thou hearest.

51 an:

And Yoseph (3130) answered Pharaoh, saying, Let Pharaoh relate his dreams that he dreamed; surely the interpretations belong to Elohim (430); and Pharaoh related his dreams to Yoseph (3130), the dream of the kine, and the dream of the ears of corn, and the one reigning left off speaking.

52 bn:

And Yoseph (3130) was then clothed with the spirit of Elohim (430) before the one reigning, and he knew all the things that would befall the one reigning from that day forward, and he knew the proper interpretation of the dream of the one reigning, and he spoke before the one reigning.

53 gn:

And Yoseph (3130) found favor in the sight of the one reigning, and the one reigning inclined his ears and his heart, and he heard all the words of Yoseph (3130). And Yoseph (3130) said unto the one reigning, Do not imagine that they are two dreams, for it is only one dream, for that which Elohim (430) has chosen to do throughout the land he has shown to the one reigning in his dream, and this is the proper interpretation of thy dream:

54 dn:

The seven good kine and ears of corn are seven years, and the seven bad kine and ears of corn are also seven years; it is one dream.

55 hn:

Behold the seven years that are coming there will be a great plenty throughout the land, and after that the seven years of famine will follow them, a very grievous famine; and all the plenty will be forgotten from the land, and the famine will consume the inhabitants of the land.

56 wn:

The one reigning dreamed one dream, and the dream was therefore repeated unto Pharaoh because the thing is established by Elohim (430), and Elohim (430) will shortly bring it to pass.

57 zn:

Now therefore I will give thee counsel and deliver thy soul and the souls of the inhabitants of the land from the evil of the famine, that thou seek throughout thy kingdom for a man very discreet and wise, who knoweth all the affairs of government, and appoint him to superintend over the land of Mits'rayim (4714).

58 xn:

And let the man whom thou placest over Mits'rayim (4714) appoint officers under him, that they gather in all the food of the good years that are coming, and let them lay up corn and deposit it in thy appointed stores.

59 jn:

And let them keep that food for the seven years of famine, that it may be found for thee and thy people and thy whole land, and that thou and thy land be not cut off by the famine.

60 s:

Let all the inhabitants of the land be also ordered that they gather in, every man the produce of his field, of all sorts of food, during the seven good years, and that they place it in their stores, that it may be found for them in the days of the famine and that they may live upon it.

61 as:

This is the proper interpretation of thy dream, and this is the counsel given to save thy soul and the souls of all thy subjects.

62 bs:

And the one reigning answered and said unto Yoseph (3130), Who sayeth and who knoweth that thy words are correct? And he said unto the one reigning, This shall be a sign for thee respecting all my words, that they are true and that my advice is good for thee.

63 gs:

Behold thy wife sitteth this day upon the stool of delivery, and she will bear thee a son and thou wilt rejoice with him; when thy child shall have gone forth from his mother's womb, thy first born son that has been born these two years back shall die, and thou wilt be comforted in the child that will be born unto thee this day.

64 ds:

And Yoseph (3130) finished speaking these words to the one reigning, and he bowed down to the one reigning and he went out, and when Yoseph (3130) had gone out from the one reigning's presence, those signs which Yoseph (3130) had spoken unto the one reigning came to pass on that day.

65 hs:

And the queen bare a son on that day and the one reigning heard the glad tidings about his son, and he rejoiced, and when the reporter had gone forth from the presence of the one reigning, the servants of the one reigning found the first born son of the one reigning fallen dead upon the ground.

66 ws:

And there was great lamentation and noise in the house of the one reigning, and the one reigning heard it, and he said, What is the noise and lamentation that I have heard in the house? and they told the one reigning that his first born son had died; then the one reigning knew that all the words of Yoseph (3130) that he had spoken were correct, and the one reigning was consoled for his son by the child that was born to him on that day as Yoseph (3130) had spoken.
