Unchecked Copy BoxGen 40:1 - It came to pass after these things that the butler and the baker of the king of Egypt offended their lord, the king of Egypt.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 40:2 - And Pharaoh was angry with his two officers, the chief butler and the chief baker.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 40:3 - So he put them in custody in the house of the captain of the guard, in the prison, the place where Joseph was confined.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 40:4 - And the captain of the guard charged Joseph with them, and he served them; so they were in custody for a while.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 40:5 - Then the butler and the baker of the king of Egypt, who were confined in the prison, had a dream, both of them, each man’s dream in one night and each man’s dream with its own interpretation.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 40:6 - And Joseph came in to them in the morning and looked at them, and saw that they were sad.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 40:7 - So he asked Pharaoh’s officers who were with him in the custody of his lord’s house, saying, “Why do you look so sad today?”

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 40:8 - And they said to him, “We each have had a dream, and there is no interpreter of it.” So Joseph said to them, “Do not interpretations belong to God? Tell them to me, please.”

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 40:9 - Then the chief butler told his dream to Joseph, and said to him, “Behold, in my dream a vine was before me,

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 40:10 - “and in the vine were three branches; it was as though it budded, its blossoms shot forth, and its clusters brought forth ripe grapes.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 40:11 - “Then Pharaoh’s cup was in my hand; and I took the grapes and pressed them into Pharaoh’s cup, and placed the cup in Pharaoh’s hand.”

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 40:12 - And Joseph said to him, “This is the interpretation of it: The three branches are three days.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 40:13 - “Now within three days Pharaoh will lift up your head and restore you to your place, and you will put Pharaoh’s cup in his hand according to the former manner, when you were his butler.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 40:14 - “But remember me when it is well with you, and please show kindness to me; make mention of me to Pharaoh, and get me out of this house.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 40:15 - “For indeed I was stolen away from the land of the Hebrews; and also I have done nothing here that they should put me into the dungeon.”

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

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 40:17 - “In the uppermost basket were all kinds of baked goods for Pharaoh, and the birds ate them out of the basket on my head.”

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 40:18 - So Joseph answered and said, “This is the interpretation of it: The three baskets are three days.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 40:19 - “Within three days Pharaoh will lift off your head from you and hang you on a tree; and the birds will eat your flesh from you.”

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 40:20 - Now it came to pass on the third day, which was Pharaoh’s birthday, that he made a feast for all his servants; and he lifted up the head of the chief butler and of the chief baker among his servants.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 40:21 - Then he restored the chief butler to his butlership again, and he placed the cup in Pharaoh’s hand.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 40:22 - But he hanged the chief baker, as Joseph had interpreted to them.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 40:23 - Yet the chief butler did not remember Joseph, but forgot him.
