Genesis 40

40
1And after these things, the butler of the King of Egypt and his baker offended their lorde the King of Egypt. 2And Pharaoh was angrie against his two officers, against the chiefe butler, and against the chiefe baker. 3Therefore he put them in ward in his chiefe stewardes house, in the prison and place where Ioseph was bound. 4And the chiefe steward gaue Ioseph charge ouer them, and he serued them: and they continued a season in warde. 5And they both dreamed a dreame, eyther of them his dreame in one night, eche one according to the interpretation of his dreame, both the butler and the baker of the King of Egypt, which were bounde in the prison. 6And when Ioseph came in vnto them in the morning, and looked vpon them, beholde, they were sad. 7And he asked Pharaohs officers, that were with him in his masters warde, saying, Wherefore looke ye so sadly to day? 8Who answered him, We haue dreamed, eche one a dreame, and there is none to interprete the same. Then Ioseph saide vnto them, Are not interpretations of God? tell them me nowe. 9So the chiefe butler tolde his dreame to Ioseph, and said vnto him, In my dreame, behold, a vine was before me, 10And in the vine were three branches, and as it budded, her flowre came foorth: and the clusters of grapes waxed ripe. 11And I had Pharaohs cup in mine hande, and I tooke the grapes, and wrung the into Pharaohs cup, and I gaue the cup into Pharaohs hand. 12Then Ioseph sayde vnto him, This is the interpretation of it: The three braunches are three dayes. 13Within three dayes shall Pharaoh lift vp thine head, and restore thee vnto thine office, and thou shalt giue Pharaohs cup into his hand after the olde maner, when thou wast his butler. 14But haue me in remembrance with thee, when thou art in good case, and shew mercie, I pray thee, vnto me, and make mention of me to Pharaoh, that thou mayest bring me out of this house. 15For I was stollen away by theft out of the land of the Ebrewes, and here also haue I done nothing, wherefore they should put mee in the dungeon. 16And when the chiefe baker sawe that the interpretation was good, hee saide vnto Ioseph, Also mee thought in my dreame that I had three white baskets on mine head. 17And in the vppermost basket there was of all maner baken meates for Pharaoh: and the birdes did eate them out of the basket vpon mine head. 18Then Ioseph answered, and saide, This is the interpretation thereof: The three baskets are three dayes: 19Within three dayes shall Pharaoh take thine head from thee, and shall hang thee on a tree, and the birdes shall eate thy flesh from off thee. 20And so the third day, which was Pharaohs birthday, hee made a feast vnto all his seruants: and hee lifted vp the head of the chiefe butler, and the head of the chiefe baker among his seruants. 21And he restored the chiefe butler vnto his butlershippe, who gaue the cup into Pharaohs hande, 22But he hanged the chiefe baker, as Ioseph had interpreted vnto them. 23Yet the chiefe butler did not remember Ioseph, but forgate him.

1And it cometh to pass, after these things — the butler of the king of Egypt and the baker have sinned against their lord, against the king of Egypt;
2and Pharaoh is wroth against his two eunuchs, against the chief of the butlers, and against the chief of the bakers,
3and giveth them in charge in the house of the chief of the executioners, unto the round-house, the place where Joseph [is] a prisoner,
4and the chief of the executioners chargeth Joseph with them, and he serveth them; and they are days in charge.
5And they dream a dream both of them, each his dream in one night, each according to the interpretation of his dream, the butler and the baker whom the king of Egypt hath, who [are] prisoners in the round-house.
6And Joseph cometh in unto them in the morning, and seeth them, and lo, they [are] morose;
7and he asketh Pharaoh's eunuchs who [are] with him in charge in the house of his lord, saying, ‘Wherefore [are] your faces sad to-day?’
8And they say unto him, ‘A dream we have dreamed, and there is no interpreter of it;’ and Joseph saith unto them, ‘Are not interpretations with God? recount, I pray you, to me.’
9And the chief of the butlers recounteth his dream to Joseph, and saith to him, ‘In my dream, then lo, a vine [is] before me!
10and in the vine [are] three branches, and it [is] as it were flourishing; gone up hath its blossom, its clusters have ripened grapes;
11and Pharaoh's cup [is] in my hand, and I take the grapes and press them into the cup of Pharaoh, and I give the cup into the hand of Pharaoh.’
12And Joseph saith to him, ‘This [is] its interpretation: the three branches are three days;
13yet, within three days doth Pharaoh lift up thy head, and hath put thee back on thy station, and thou hast given the cup of Pharaoh into his hand, according to the former custom when thou wast his butler.
14‘Surely if thou hast remembered me with thee, when it is well with thee, and hast done (I pray thee) kindness with me, and hast made mention of me unto Pharaoh, then hast thou brought me out from this house,
15for I was really stolen from the land of the Hebrews; and here also have I done nothing that they have put me in the pit.’
16And the chief of the bakers seeth that he hath interpreted good, and he saith unto Joseph, ‘I also [am] in a dream, and lo, three baskets of white bread [are] on my head,
17and in the uppermost basket [are] of all [kinds] of Pharaoh's food, work of a baker; and the birds are eating them out of the basket, from off my head.’
18And Joseph answereth and saith, ‘This [is] its interpretation: the three baskets are three days;
19yet, within three days doth Pharaoh lift up thy head from off thee, and hath hanged thee on a tree, and the birds have eaten thy flesh from off thee.’
20And it cometh to pass, on the third day, Pharaoh's birthday, that he maketh a banquet to all his servants, and lifteth up the head of the chief of the butlers, and the head of the chief of the bakers among his servants,
21and he putteth back the chief of the butlers to his butlership, and he giveth the cup into the hand of Pharaoh;
22and the chief of the bakers he hath hanged, as Joseph hath interpreted to them;
23and the chief of the butlers hath not remembered Joseph, but forgetteth him.
