Genesis 40:12-19

12Then Joseph said to him, aThis is its interpretation: bthe three branches are three days. 13In three days Pharaoh will clift up your head and restore you to your office, and you shall place Pharaoh’s cup in his hand as formerly, when you were his cupbearer. 14Only remember me, when it is well with you, and please do me the kindness to mention me to Pharaoh, and so get me out of this house. 15For dI was indeed stolen out of the land of the Hebrews, and ehere also I have done nothing that they should put me into the pit.”

16When the chief baker saw that the interpretation was favorable, he said to Joseph, “I also had a dream: there were three cake baskets on my head, 17and in the uppermost basket there were all sorts of baked food for Pharaoh, but the birds were eating it out of the basket on my head.” 18And Joseph answered and said, fThis is its interpretation: the three baskets are three days. 19 gIn three days Pharaoh will lift up your headfrom you!—and hhang you on a tree. And the birds will eat the flesh from you.”
