Genesis 40

1And it came to pass after these things, that the chief cupbearer of the king of Egypt and the chief baker trespassed against their lord, the king of Egypt. 2And Pharaoh was angry with his two eunuchs, with his chief cupbearer, and with his chief baker. 3So he put them in custody, into the prison, into the place where Joseph was confined. 4And the chief keeper of the prison committed them to Joseph, and he served them; and they were some days in the prison. 5And they both had a dream in one night; and the vision of the dream of the chief cupbearer and chief baker, who belonged to the king of Egypt, who were in the prison, was this: 6Joseph went in to them in the morning, and saw them, and they had been troubled. 7So he asked the eunuchs of Pharaoh who were with him in the prison with his master, saying, Why is it that you look so sad today? 8And they said to him, We have seen a dream, and there is no interpreter of it. And Joseph said to them, Is not the interpretation of them with God? Therefore tell them to me. 9And the chief cupbearer related his dream to Joseph, and said, In my dream a vine was before me. 10And in the vine were three stems; and its budding shot forth blossoms; the clusters of grapes were ripe. 11And the cup of Pharaoh was in my hand; and I took the bunch of grapes, and squeezed it into the cup, and gave the cup into Pharaoh's hand. 12And Joseph said to him, This is the interpretation of it. The three stems are three days. 13Yet three days and Pharaoh shall remember your position, and he shall restore you to your place of chief cupbearer, and you shall give Pharaoh's cup into his hand, according to your former high place, as you were his cupbearer. 14But remember me when it is well with you, and you shall deal mercifully with me, and you shall make mention of me to Pharaoh, and you shall bring me forth out of this dungeon. 15For surely I was stolen away out of the land of the Hebrews, and here I have done nothing, but they have cast me into this pit. 16And the chief baker saw that he interpreted correctly; and he said to Joseph, I also saw a dream, and in it I took up on my head three baskets of bread. 17And in the upper basket there was the work of the baker of every kind of bread which Pharaoh eats; and the birds of the air ate them out of the basket that was on my head. 18And Joseph answered and said to him, This is the interpretation of it; The three baskets are three days. 19Yet three days, and Pharaoh shall lift up your head from off you, and shall hang you from a tree, and the birds of the sky shall eat your flesh from off of you. 20And it came to pass on the third day that it was Pharaoh's birthday, and he made a banquet for all his servants, and he remembered the office of the cupbearer and the office of the baker in the midst of his servants. 21And he restored the chief cupbearer to his office, and he gave the cup into Pharaoh's hand. 22And he hanged the chief baker, as Joseph interpreted to them. 23Yet the chief cupbearer did not remember Joseph, but forgot him.
