Unchecked Copy BoxGen 40:1 - After these things happened, the cupbearer to the king of Egypt and the royal baker offended their master, the king of Egypt.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 40:2 - Pharaoh was enraged with his two officials, the cupbearer and the baker,

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 40:3 - so he imprisoned them in the house of the captain of the guard in the same facility where Joseph was confined.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 40:4 - The captain of the guard appointed Joseph to be their attendant, and he served them. They spent some time in custody.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 40:5 - Both of them, the cupbearer and the baker of the king of Egypt, who were confined in the prison, had a dream the same night. Each man's dream had its own meaning.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 40:6 - When Joseph came to them in the morning, he saw that they were looking depressed.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 40:7 - So he asked Pharaoh's officials, who were with him in custody in his master's house, "Why do you look so sad today?"

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 40:8 - They told him, "We both had dreams, but there is no one to interpret them." Joseph responded, "Don't interpretations belong to God? Tell them to me."

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 40:9 - So the chief cupbearer told his dream to Joseph: "In my dream, there was a vine in front of me.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 40:10 - On the vine there were three branches. As it budded, its blossoms opened and its clusters ripened into grapes.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 40:11 - Now Pharaoh's cup was in my hand, so I took the grapes, squeezed them into his cup, and put the cup in Pharaoh's hand."

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 40:12 - "This is its meaning," Joseph said to him. "The three branches represent three days.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 40:13 - In three more days Pharaoh will reinstate you and restore you to your office. You will put Pharaoh's cup in his hand, just as you did before when you were cupbearer.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 40:14 - But remember me when it goes well for you, and show me kindness. Make mention of me to Pharaoh and bring me out of this prison,

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 40:15 - for I really was kidnapped from the land of the Hebrews and I have done nothing wrong here for which they should put me in a dungeon."

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 40:16 - When the chief baker saw that the interpretation of the first dream was favorable, he said to Joseph, "I also appeared in my dream and there were three baskets of white bread on my head.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 40:17 - In the top basket there were baked goods of every kind for Pharaoh, but the birds were eating them from the basket that was on my head."

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 40:18 - Joseph replied, "This is its meaning: The three baskets represent three days.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 40:19 - In three more days Pharaoh will decapitate you and impale you on a pole. Then the birds will eat your flesh from you."

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 40:20 - On the third day it was Pharaoh's birthday, so he gave a feast for all his servants. He "lifted up" the head of the chief cupbearer and the head of the chief baker in the midst of his servants.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 40:21 - He restored the chief cupbearer to his former position so that he placed the cup in Pharaoh's hand,

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 40:22 - but the chief baker he impaled, just as Joseph had predicted.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 40:23 - But the chief cupbearer did not remember Joseph - he forgot him.
