Genesis 40


Joseph Interprets Dreams

1And it came to pass after these things, [6sinned 1the 2chief wine taster 3of the 4king 5of Egypt], and the chief baker against their master the king of Egypt. 2And Pharaoh was provoked to anger over [2two 3eunuchs 1his] -- over the chief wine taster and over the chief baker. 3And he put them under guard in the jail, into the place where Joseph had been taken away there. 4And [3combined 1the 2chief jailer] them to Joseph, and he stood beside them. And they were some days under guard. 5And [2saw 1both] a dream in one night. And the vision of the dream of the chief wine taster and the chief baker, the ones who were in service to the king of Egypt, the ones being in the jail, was this. 6[3entered 1And 4to 5them 2Joseph] in the morning, and he saw them, and they were disturbed. 7And he asked the eunuchs of Pharaoh, who were with him under guard, by his master, saying, Why is it that your faces are looking downcast today? 8 And they said to him, [2a dream 1We saw], and the interpreting it is not. [3said 1And 4to them 2Joseph], [2not 6through 7God 3the 4explanation 5of them 1Is]? Describe them then to me. 9And [3described 1the 2chief wine taster] his dream to Joseph. And he said, In my sleep there was a grapevine before me. 10And in the grapevine three lower branches; and it flourished offering [2buds 1mature] -- the clusters of the grape. 11And the cup of Pharaoh was in my hand, and I took the grape cluster and squeezed it into the cup, and gave the cup into the hand of Pharaoh. 12And [2said 3to him 1Joseph], This is the interpretation of it. The three lower branches [2three 3days 1are]. 13In yet three days and Pharaoh will remember your office, and restore you to your office of chief wine taster, and you will give the cup to Pharaoh, into his hand according to [3office 1your 2former], as you were of the wine servers. 14But remember me of yourself, whenever good happens to you, and you shall do with me an act of mercy. And you shall remind [2concerning 3me 1Pharaoh], and lead me from this fortress. 15For by stealth I was stolen from the land of the Hebrews, and here I did not do anything, but they put me into this pit. 16And [3saw 1the 2chief baker] that rightly he interpreted, and he said to Joseph, I also saw a dream, and I imagined three bins of groats, lifted upon my head. 17And in the bin above, items of all kinds of things of which Pharaoh eats -- the work of a baker. And the birds of the heaven ate them from the bin upon my head. 18And answering Joseph said to him, This is the interpretation of it. The three bins [2three 3days 1are]. 19Yet in three days and Pharaoh will remove your head from you, and hang you upon a timber, and [5will eat 1the 2birds 3of the 4heaven] the flesh from you. 20And it came to pass in the [2day 1third], [3day 2the birth 1that it was] of Pharaoh, and he made a banquet for all his servants, and he remembered concerning the chief wine taster, and the office of the chief baker in the midst of his servants. 21And he restored the chief wine taster to his office, and he gave the cup unto the hand of Pharaoh. 22And the chief baker he hung, as [2interpreted 3to them 1Joseph]. 23And [3remembered not 1the 2chief wine taster] Joseph, but forgot him.
