Joseph Interprets a Dream

1 Then it came about after these things, the R1145 cupbearer and the baker for the king of Egypt offended their lord, the king of Egypt. 2 Pharaoh was furious R1146 with his two officials, the chief cupbearer and the chief baker. 3 So he put them in confinement in the house of the captain R1147 of the bodyguard, in the jail, the same place where Joseph was imprisoned. 4 The captain of the bodyguard put Joseph in charge of them, and he took F784 care of them; and they were in confinement for some F785 time. 5 Then the cupbearer and the baker for the king of Egypt, who were confined in jail, both had a dream the same night, each man with his own dream and each dream with its own interpretation. 6 When F786 Joseph came to them in the morning and observed them, behold, F787 they were dejected. 7 He asked Pharaoh's officials who were with him in confinement in his master's house, "Why R1148 F788 are your faces so sad today?" 8 Then they said to him, "We R1149 have had F789 a dream and there is no one to interpret it." Then Joseph said to them, "Do R1150 not interpretations belong to God? Tell it to me, please."

9 So the chief cupbearer told his dream to Joseph, and said to him, "In my dream, behold, F790 there was a vine in front of me; 10 and on the vine were three branches. And as it was budding, its blossoms came out, and its clusters produced ripe grapes. 11 "Now Pharaoh's cup was in my hand; so I took the grapes and squeezed them into Pharaoh's cup, and I put the cup into Pharaoh's hand." F791 12 Then Joseph said to him, "This is the interpretation R1151 of it: the three branches are three days; 13 within three more days Pharaoh will lift F792 up your head and restore you to your office; F793 and you will put Pharaoh's cup into his hand according to your former custom when you were his cupbearer. 14 "Only keep F794 me in mind when it goes well with you, and please do R1152 me a kindness by F795 mentioning me to Pharaoh and get me out of this house. 15 "For I R1153 was in fact kidnapped from the land of the Hebrews, and even here I have done nothing that they should have put me into the dungeon." F796

16 When the chief baker saw that he had interpreted favorably, he said to Joseph, "I also saw in my dream, and behold, there were three baskets of white bread on my head; 17 and in the top basket there were some of all sorts F797 of baked food for Pharaoh, and the birds were eating them out of the basket on my head." 18 Then Joseph answered and said, "This is its interpretation: the three baskets are three days; 19 within three more days Pharaoh will lift up your head from you and will hang you on a tree, and the birds will eat your flesh off you."

20 Thus it came about on the third day, which was Pharaoh's R1154 birthday, that he made a feast for all his servants; and R1155 he lifted up the head of the chief cupbearer and the head of the chief baker among his servants. 21 He restored the chief cupbearer to his office, F798 and he R1156 put the cup into Pharaoh's hand; F799 22 but he R1157 hanged the chief baker, just as Joseph had interpreted to them. 23 Yet the chief cupbearer did not remember Joseph, but forgot R1158 him.
