Joseph Interprets Dreams

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 40:1 - Then it came about after these things, that the cupbearer and the baker for the king of Egypt offended their lord, the king of Egypt.
Unchecked Copy BoxGen 40:2 - And Pharaoh was furious with his two officials, the chief cupbearer and the chief baker.
Unchecked Copy BoxGen 40:3 - So he put them in confinement in the house of the captain of the bodyguard, in the prison, the same place where Joseph was imprisoned.
Unchecked Copy BoxGen 40:4 - And the captain of the bodyguard put Joseph in charge of them, and he [fn]took care of them; and they were in confinement for [fn]some time.
Unchecked Copy BoxGen 40:5 - Then 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.
Unchecked Copy BoxGen 40:6 - [fn]When Joseph came to them in the morning and saw them, [fn]behold, they were dejected.
Unchecked Copy BoxGen 40:7 - So he asked Pharaoh’s officials who were with him in confinement in his master’s house, “[fn]Why are your faces so sad today?”
Unchecked Copy BoxGen 40:8 - And they said to him, “We have [fn]had 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.”
Unchecked Copy BoxGen 40:9 - So the chief cupbearer told his dream to Joseph, [fn]saying to him, “In my dream, [fn]behold, there was a vine in front of me;
Unchecked Copy BoxGen 40:10 - and on the vine were three branches. And as it was budding, its blossoms came out, and its clusters produced ripe grapes.
Unchecked Copy BoxGen 40:11 - “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 [fn]hand.”
Unchecked Copy BoxGen 40:12 - Then Joseph said to him, “This is the interpretation of it: the three branches are three days;
Unchecked Copy BoxGen 40:13 - within three more days Pharaoh will [fn]lift 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.
Unchecked Copy BoxGen 40:14 - “Only [fn]keep me in mind when it goes well for you, and please do me a kindness [fn]by mentioning me to Pharaoh, and get me out of this [fn]prison.
Unchecked Copy BoxGen 40:15 - “For 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 [fn]dungeon.”
Unchecked Copy BoxGen 40:16 - 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;
Unchecked Copy BoxGen 40:17 - and in the top basket there were some of all [fn]kinds of baked food for Pharaoh, and the birds were eating them out of the basket on my head.”
Unchecked Copy BoxGen 40:18 - Then Joseph answered and said, “This is its interpretation: the three baskets are three days;
Unchecked Copy BoxGen 40:19 - within 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.”
Unchecked Copy BoxGen 40:20 - So 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.
Unchecked Copy BoxGen 40:21 - He restored the chief cupbearer to his [fn]office, and he put the cup into Pharaoh’s [fn]hand;
Unchecked Copy BoxGen 40:22 - but he hanged the chief baker, just as Joseph had interpreted to them.
Unchecked Copy BoxGen 40:23 - Yet the chief cupbearer did not remember Joseph, but forgot him.
