Genesis 40


40:1 And it came to pass after these things, [that] the butler
 of the king of Egypt and [his] baker had offended their lord
 the king of Egypt.
40:2 And Pharaoh was wroth with two [of] his officers, with the
 chief of the butlers, and with the chief of the bakers.
40:3 And he put them in custody in the house of the captain of
 the guard, into the prison, the place where Joseph [was] bound.
40:4 And the captain of the guard charged Joseph with them, and
 he served them; and they continued a season in custody.
40:5 And they dreamed a dream both of them, each man his dream
 in one night, each man according to the interpretation of his
 dream; the butler and the baker of the king of Egypt, who
 [were] bound in the prison.
40:6 And Joseph came to them in the morning, and looked upon
 them, and behold, they [were] sad.
40:7 And he asked Pharaoh's officers that [were] with him in the
 ward of his lord's house, saying, Why look ye [so] sad to-day?
40:8 And they said to him, We have dreamed a dream, and [there
 is] no interpreter of it. And Joseph said to them, [Do] not
 interpretations [belong] to God? tell me [them], I pray you.
40:9 And the chief butler told his dream to Joseph, and said to
 him, In my dream, behold, a vine [was] before me;
40:10 And on the vine [were] three branches: and it [was] as
 though it budded, [and] its blossoms shot forth; and its
 clusters brought forth ripe grapes:
40:11 And Pharaoh's cup [was] in my hand: and I took the grapes,
 and pressed them into Pharaoh's cup, and I gave the cup into
 Pharaoh's hand.
40:12 And Joseph said to him, This [is] the interpretation of
 it: The three branches [are] three days;
40:13 Yet within three days shall Pharaoh lift up thy head, and
 restore thee to thy place: and thou shalt deliver Pharaoh's cup
 into his hand, after the former manner when thou wast his
 butler.
40:14 But think on me when it shall be well with thee, and show
 kindness to me, I pray thee, and make mention of me to Pharaoh,
 and bring me out of this house:
40:15 For indeed I was stolen away from the land of the Hebrews:
 and here also have I done nothing that they should put me into
 the dungeon.
40:16 When the chief baker saw that the interpretation was good,
 he said to Joseph, I also [was] in my dream, and behold, [I
 had] three white baskets on my head:
40:17 And in the uppermost basket [there was] of all manner of
 bake-meats for Pharaoh; and the birds ate them out of the
 basket upon my head.
40:18 And Joseph answered, and said, This [is] the
 interpretation of it: The three baskets [are] three days:
40:19 Yet within three days shall Pharaoh lift up thy head from
 off thee, and shall hang thee on a tree; and the birds shall
 eat thy flesh from off thee.
40:20 And it came to pass the third day, [which was] Pharaoh's
 birth-day, that he made a feast to all his servants: and he
 lifted up the head of the chief butler and of the chief baker
 among his servants.
40:21 And he restored the chief butler to his butlership again;
 and he gave the cup into Pharaoh's hand:
40:22 But he hanged the chief baker: as Joseph had interpreted
 to them.
40:23 Yet the chief butler did not remember Joseph, but forgot
 him.
