When does Lashon Hakodesh (throughout Tanach) use "ויחלם" (and he dreamed") by itself and when is "ויחלם חלום" ("and he dreamed a dream") used?
It seems that most of the time in Tanach, the double usage is found, and if so, why? (This is essentially part of the above question.)
Some examples of the first case:
- Bereishis 28:12
- Bereishis 41:5
Some examples of the second case:
- Bereishis 40:5
- Devarim 13:2
- Shoftim 7:13
- Daniel 2:1
