Now the famine was severe in the land.
There was a famine in the land, so Abram went down to Egypt
In time of famine
You will laugh at destruction and famine
by saving their lives from death
They will not be ashamed when hard times come;
Be certain of this,
There was a famine in the land, subsequent to the earlier famine that occurred
But seven years of famine will occur
This food should be held in storage for the land in preparation for the seven years of famine that will occur throughout the land of Egypt. In this way the land will survive the famine.”
While the famine was over all the earth,
But there was no food in all the land because the famine was very severe; the land of Egypt and the land of Canaan wasted away
I will shoot against them deadly,
Our skin is hot as an oven due to a fever from hunger.
The previous abundance of the land will not be remembered
Then the seven years of famine began,
The sword is outside; pestilence and famine are inside the house. Whoever is in the open field will die by the sword, and famine and pestilence will consume everyone in the city.
He called down a famine upon the earth; he cut off all the food supply.
By the ninth day of the fourth month
For nation will rise up in arms
