Genesis 41:29-36New American Standard Bible (NASB)
29 Behold, seven years of great abundance are coming in all the land of Egypt;30 and after them seven years of famine will [a]come, and all the abundance will be forgotten in the land of Egypt, and the famine will [b]ravage the land.31 So the abundance will be unknown in the land because of that subsequent famine; for it will be very severe.32 Now as for the repeating of the dream to Pharaoh twice, it means that the matter is determined by God, and God will quickly bring it about.33 Now let Pharaoh look for a man discerning and wise, and set him over the land of Egypt.34 Let Pharaoh take action to appoint overseers [c]in charge of the land, and let him exact a fifth of the produce of the land of Egypt in the seven years of abundance.35 Then let them gather all the food of these good years that are coming, and store up the grain for food in the cities under Pharaoh’s authority, and let them guard it.36 Let the food become as a reserve for the land for the seven years of famine which will occur in the land of Egypt, so that the land will not perish during the famine.”
Matthew 14:15-21New American Standard Bible (NASB)
15 When it was evening, the disciples came to Him and said, “This place is desolate and the hour is already [a]late; so send the crowds away, that they may go into the villages and buy food for themselves.”16 But Jesus said to them, “They do not need to go away; you give them something to eat!”17 They *said to Him, “We have here only five loaves and two fish.”18 And He said, “Bring them here to Me.”19 Ordering the [b]people to [c]sit down on the grass, He took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up toward heaven, He blessed the food, and breaking the loaves He gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the crowds,20 and they all ate and were satisfied. They picked up what was left over of the broken pieces, twelve full baskets.21 There were about five thousand men who ate, besides women and children.
