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.

Chapter 40
Joseph tells two people what their dreams mean
1Some time later, two of the king's officers made him angry. One of them was the king's cupbearer. #40:1 The cupbearer had authority in the king's house. He would make sure that the king's wine was safe for the king to drink. The other was the king's baker.
2 Pharaoh was angry with his two officers, both the cupbearer and the baker. 3Pharaoh put them in the same prison that Joseph was in. That was in the house of the captain of the king's guards. 4They were in the prison for a long time. The captain of the guards made Joseph their servant, to help them. 5One night, both of the king's officers had a dream. Each dream had its own meaning.
6When Joseph came to them the next morning, he saw that they were upset. 7So Joseph asked the two officers, ‘What are you sad about?’ 8They replied, ‘We both had dreams last night, but there is nobody to tell us what they mean.’ Joseph said, ‘Only God can tell you the meaning of dreams. Tell your dreams to me.’
9So the king's cupbearer told Joseph his dream. He said, ‘In my dream I saw a vine in front of me. 10There were three branches on it. New leaves came on the branches, and then flowers came. After that, there were grapes which became ripe. 11Pharaoh's cup was in my hand. I took the grapes and I squeezed them. Then I put the juice into the cup and I gave the cup to Pharaoh.’
12Joseph said, ‘This is what your dream means. The three branches tell us about three days. 13In three days, Pharaoh will lift up your head and he will make you his officer again. #40:13 lift up your head means ‘you will be important again’. You will put Pharaoh's cup into his hand, as you did before. 14But when these good things happen to you, remember to be kind to me. Tell Pharaoh about me so that I will get out of this prison. 15Men took me hold of me in the land of the Hebrews and they brought me here. Even here, I have not done anything wrong. I should not be in this prison.’
16The king's baker heard what Joseph had said to the cupbearer. He realized that the meaning of the cupbearer's dream was good. So he said to Joseph, ‘This was my dream: I had three baskets of bread on my head. 17The top basket contained many different kinds of bread for Pharaoh. But birds were eating them out of the basket on my head.’
18Joseph said, ‘This is what your dream means. The three baskets tell us about three days. 19In three days, Pharaoh will lift off your head. He will hang you on a tree. Then birds will eat the meat off your body.’
20Three days later, it was Pharaoh's birthday. He gave a feast for all his officers. He lifted up the head of the cupbearer and he lifted off the head of the baker! He brought them both out of the prison so that all his officers could see.
21Pharaoh caused the cupbearer to be his own cupbearer again. As a result, the cupbearer put Pharaoh's cup into his hand again, as he did before. 22But Pharaoh hanged the baker to kill him.
So it all happened in the way that Joseph said it would happen. 23But the cupbearer did not think about Joseph at all. He completely forgot about him.
