Genesis 40

40
1And it came to pass after these things, [that] the butler of the king of Mitzrayim [Egypt] (Double Distress or Double Stronghold, Black Land) and [his] baker had offended their lord the king of Mitzrayim [Egypt]
2And Pharaoh (Great House) was exceedingly angry against two [of] his officers, against the chief of the butlers, and against the chief of the bakers.
3And he put them in ward (in custody, with a guard; prison) in the house of the captain of the guard, into the prison, the place where Yosef (Increaser; May God the Powerful One add [Yah]) [was] bound.
4And the captain of the guard charged Yosef with them, and he served them: and they continued a season in ward (in custody, with a guard; prison).
5And 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 Mitzrayim [Egypt], which [were] bound in the prison.
6And Yosef came in unto them in the morning, and looked upon them, and, behold, they [were] sad.
7And he asked Pharaoh’s officers that [were] with him in the ward (in custody, with a guard; prison) of his lord’s house, saying, For what reason look youf [so] sadly to day?
8And they said unto him, We have dreamed a dream, and [there is] no interpreter of it. And Yosef said unto them, [Do] not interpretations [belong] to God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered]? tell me [them], I pray you.
9And the chief butler told his dream to Yosef, and said to him, In my dream, behold, a vine [was] before me;
10And in the vine [were] three branches: and it [was] as though it budded, [and] her blossoms shot forth; and the clusters thereof brought forth ripe grapes:
11And 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.
12And Yosef said unto him, This [is] the interpretation of it: The three branches [are] three days:
13Yet within three days shall Pharaoh lift up youri head, and restore youi unto youri place: and youi shall deliver Pharaoh’s cup into his hand, after the former manner when youi were his butler.
14But think on me when it shall be well with youi, and show kindness, I pray youi, unto me, and make mention of me unto Pharaoh (Great House), and bring me out of this house:
15For indeed I was stolen away out of the land of the Hebrews: and here also have I done nothing that they should put me into the dungeon.
16When the chief baker saw that the interpretation was good, he said unto Yosef, I also [was] in my dream, and, behold, [I had] three white baskets on my head:
17And in the uppermost basket [there was] of all manner of bakemeats [works of the baker, such as biscuits and cakes] for Pharaoh; and the birds did eat them out of the basket upon my head.
18And Yosef answered and said, This [is] the interpretation thereof: The three baskets [are] three days:
19Yet within three days shall Pharaoh lift up youri head from off youi, and shall hang youi on a tree; and the birds shall eat youri flesh from off youi.
20And it came to pass the third day, [which was] Pharaoh’s birthday, that he made a feast unto all his servants: and he lifted up the head of the chief butler and of the chief baker among his servants.
21And he restored the chief butler unto his butlership again; and he gave the cup into Pharaoh’s hand:
22But he hanged the chief baker: as Yosef had interpreted to them.
23Yet did not the chief butler remember Yosef, but forgot him.

Joseph Interprets Dreams
1Then it came about after these things, that the cupbearer and the baker for the king of Egypt offended their lord, the king of Egypt. 2And Pharaoh was furious with his two officials, the chief cupbearer and the chief baker. 3So he put them in confinement in the house of the captain of the bodyguard, in the prison, the same place where Joseph was imprisoned. 4And the captain of the bodyguard put Joseph in charge of them, and he #Lit ministered totook care of them; and they were in confinement for #Lit dayssome time. 5Then the cupbearer and the baker for the king of Egypt, who were confined in the prison, both had a dream the same night, each man with his own dream and each dream with its own interpretation. 6#Or AndWhen Joseph came to them in the morning and saw them, #Lit and beholdbehold, they were dejected. 7So he asked Pharaoh’s officials who were with him in confinement in his master’s house, “#Lit saying, WhyWhy are your faces so sad today?” 8And they said to him, “We have #Lit dreamedhad a dream, and there is no one to interpret it.” Then Joseph said to them, “Do interpretations not belong to God? Tell it to me, please.”
9So the chief cupbearer told his dream to Joseph, #Lit and saidsaying to him, “In my dream, #Lit and beholdbehold, there was a vine in front of me; 10and on the vine were three branches. And as it was budding, its blossoms came out, and its clusters produced ripe grapes. 11Now 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 #Lit palmhand.” 12Then Joseph said to him, “This is the interpretation of it: the three branches are three days; 13within three more days Pharaoh will #I.e., a royal gesture of forgivenesslift up your head and restore you to your office; and you will put Pharaoh’s cup into his hand as in your former practice when you were his cupbearer. 14Only #Lit remember me with yourselfkeep me in mind when it goes well for you, and please do me a kindness #Lit and mentionby mentioning me to Pharaoh, and get me out of this #Lit houseprison. 15For I 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 #Or pitdungeon.”
16When 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; 17and in the top basket there were some of all #Lit food for Pharaoh made by a bakerkinds of baked food for Pharaoh, and the birds were eating them out of the basket on my head.” 18Then Joseph answered and said, “This is its interpretation: the three baskets are three days; 19within three more days Pharaoh will lift up your head from you and will hang you on a wooden post, and the birds will eat your flesh off you.”
20So it came about on the third day, which was Pharaoh’s birthday, that he held a feast for all his servants; and he lifted up the head of the chief cupbearer and the head of the chief baker among his servants. 21He restored the chief cupbearer to his #Lit wine-pouringoffice, and he put the cup into Pharaoh’s #Lit palmhand; 22but he hanged the chief baker, just as Joseph had interpreted to them. 23Yet the chief cupbearer did not remember Joseph, but forgot him.
