Genesis 41:4

Καὶ κατέφαγον αἱ ἑπτὰ βόες αἱ αἰσχραὶ καὶ λεπταὶ ταῖς σαρξὶν τὰς ἑπτὰ βόας τὰς καλὰς τῷ εἴδει καὶ τὰς ἐκλεκτάς . ἠγέρθη δὲ Φαραώ.

And the seven cows that are ugly and thin in the flesh devoured the seven cows that are beautiful in the form and the choice. Then Pharao awoke.

ותאכלנה הפרות רעות המראה ודקת הבשׂר את שׁבע הפרות יפת המראה והבריאת וייקץ פרעה׃
