Yet when they had devoured them, it could not be detected that they had devoured them; for they were just as ugly as before….I saw also in my dream seven ears, full and good, came up on a single stalk; and lo, seven ears, withered, thin, and scorched by the east wind, sprouted up after them; and the thin ears swallowed the seven good ears.”
