Genesis 41:29-30

Context
41:29 Seven years of great abundance are coming throughout the whole land of Egypt. 41:30 But seven years of famine will occur 1  after them, and all the abundance will be forgotten in the land of Egypt. The famine will devastate 2  the land.

1 tn The perfect with the vav consecutive continues the time frame of the preceding participle, which has an imminent future nuance here.

2 tn The Hebrew verb כָּלָה (kalah) in the Piel stem means “to finish, to destroy, to bring an end to.” The severity of the famine will ruin the land of Egypt.
