* Give your cattle.
This was the wisest measure that could be adopted, both for
the preservation of the people and the cattle. As the people
had not grain for their own sustenance, consequently they
could have none for their cattle: hence they were in the
most imminent danger of starving; and the people also were in
equal danger; as they must have divided a portion of that
bought for themselves with the cattle, which, for the sake of
tillage, etc., they wished of course to preserve till the
seven years' famine should end.
