after these things, the cupbearer and the baker of the king of Egypt offended their lord, the king of Egypt.
Pharaoh was angry with his two officials, the chief of the cupbearers and the chief of the bakers.
he put them in custody at the house of the acaptain
of the guard, in the prison, the place where Joseph was bconfined
the captain of the guard put Joseph in charge of them, and he ministered to them; and they were in custody for some time.
the cupbearer and the baker of the king of Egypt, who were confined in the prison, both of them had a dream, each man with his own dream in one night, and
each dream with its own interpretation.
Joseph came to them in the morning and looked at them, and they were troubled.
he asked Pharaoh’s officials, who were with him in custody in his master’s house, saying, Why are your faces so sad today?
they said to him, We have had a adream
, and there is no one to interpret it. And Joseph said to them, 1Do
not interpretations belong to bGod
? Please tell it
the chief of the cupbearers told his dream to Joseph and said to him, In my dream there was a vine before me,
on the vine were three branches. And as soon as it budded, its blossoms came out, and
its clusters ripened into grapes.
Pharaoh’s cup was in my hand, and I took the grapes and squeezed them into Pharaoh’s cup, and I put the cup in Pharaoh’s hand.
Joseph said to him, This is its ainterpretation
: The three branches are three days.
three more days Pharaoh will alift
up your head and restore you to your office, and you will put Pharaoh’s cup into his hand according to your former custom when you were his cupbearer.
remember my being with you when it is well with you, and please do me a kindness and make mention of me to Pharaoh and so
have me brought out of this house.
I was actually akidnapped
out of the land of the Hebrews, and here also I have not done anything that they should put me into the bdungeon
when the chief of the bakers saw that the interpretation was good, he said to Joseph, I also saw this
in my dream: There were three baskets of white bread on my head.
in the uppermost basket there were all sorts of baked food for Pharaoh, and the birds were eating them out of the basket on my head.
Joseph answered and said, This is its ainterpretation
: The three baskets are bthree
three more days Pharaoh will lift up your head from you and will ahang
you on a tree, and the birds will eat your flesh from you.
on the third day, which was Pharaoh’s birthday, he made a feast for all his servants; and he alifted
up the head of the chief of the cupbearers and the head of the chief of the bakers among his servants.
the chief of the cupbearers to his cupbearing, and he put the cup into Pharaoh’s hand;
the chief of the bakers he ahanged
, just as Joseph had interpreted to them.
the chief of the cupbearers did not aremember
Joseph, but forgot him.
