1 Then it came░ about after░ these░ things░, athe cupbearer░ and the baker░ for the king░ of Egypt░ offended░ their lord░, the king░ of Egypt░. 2 Pharaoh░ was afurious░ with his two░ officials░, the chief░ cupbearer░ and the chief░ baker░. 3 So he put░ them in confinement░ in the house░ of the acaptain░ of the bodyguard░, in the jail░░, the [same] place░ where░░ Joseph░ was imprisoned░. 4 The captain░ of the bodyguard░ put░ Joseph░ in charge░ of them, and he Itook░ care░ of them; and they were in confinement░ for IIsome░ time░. 5 Then the cupbearer░ and the baker░ for the king░ of Egypt░, who░ were confined░ in jail░░, both░ had░ a dream░ the same░ night░, each░ man░ with his [own] dream░ [and] each░ dream░ with its [own] interpretation░. 6 IWhen Joseph░ came░ to them in the morning░ and observed░ them, IIbehold░, they were dejected░. 7 He asked░ Pharaoh’s░ officials░ who░ were with him in confinement░ in his master’s░ house░, “IaWhy░ are your faces░ so sad░ today░?” 8 Then they said░ to him, “aWe have Ihad░ a dream░ and there░ is no░ one░ to interpret░ it.” Then Joseph░ said░ to them, “bDo not interpretations░ belong to God░? Tell░ [it] to me, please░.”

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░; 17 and in the top░ basket░ [there were] some░ of all░ Isorts of baked░ food░ for Pharaoh░, and the birds░ were eating░ them out of the basket░ on my head░.” 18 Then Joseph░ answered░ and said░, “This░ is its interpretation░: the three░ baskets░ are three░ days░; 19 within three░ more░ days░ Pharaoh░ will lift░ up your head░ from you and will hang░ you on a tree░, and the birds░ will eat░ your flesh░ off░░ you.”
20 ¶ Thus it came░ about on the third░ day░, [which was] aPharaoh’s░ birthday░░, that he made░ a feast░ for all░ his servants░; band he lifted░ up the head░ of the chief░ cupbearer░ and the head░ of the chief░ baker░ among░ his servants░. 21 He restored░ the chief░ cupbearer░ to his Ioffice░, and ahe put░ the cup░ into Pharaoh’s░ IIhand░; 22 but ahe hanged░ the chief░ baker░, just░ as Joseph░ had interpreted░ to them. 23 Yet the chief░ cupbearer░ did not remember░ Joseph░, but aforgot░ him.

5 ¶ And 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 Egypt,║ which▓ [were] bound║¬ in the prison.║║ 6 And Joseph║ came in║¬ unto▓ them in the morning,║ and looked╣¬ upon▓ them, and, behold,▓ they [were] sad.║¬ 7 And he asked║¬▓ Pharaoh's║ officers║ that▓ [were] with▓ him in the ward║ of his lord's║ house,║ saying,║¬ Wherefore▓ look║ ye [so] sadly║ to day?║ 8 And they said║¬ unto▓ him, We have dreamed║¬ a dream,║ and [there is] no▓ interpreter║¬ of it. And Joseph║ said║¬ unto▓ them, [Do] not▓ interpretations║ [belong] to God?║ tell▓ me╣¬ [them], I pray you.▓ 9 And the chief║ butler╣¬▓ told║¬▓ his dream║ to Joseph,║ and said║¬ to him, In my dream,║ behold,▓ a vine║ [was] before▓ me;╣ 10 And 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:║ 11 And 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.║ 12 And Joseph║ said║¬ unto him, This▓ [is] the interpretation║ of it: The three║ branches║ [are] three║ days:║ 13 Yet║ within three║ days║ shall Pharaoh║ lift up║¬▓ thine head,║ and restore║¬ thee unto▓ thy place:║ and thou shalt deliver║¬ Pharaoh's║ cup║ into his hand,║ after the former║ manner║ when▓ thou wast▓ his butler.╣¬▓ 14 But▓▓ think╣¬ on▓ me when▓ it shall be well║¬ with thee, and shew║¬ kindness,║ I pray thee,▓ unto▓ me, and make mention║¬ of me unto▓ Pharaoh,║ and bring me╣¬ out▓ of▓ this▓ house:║ 15 For▓ 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.║ 16 When the chief║ baker║¬ saw║¬ that▓ the interpretation║¬ was good,║ he said║¬ unto▓ Joseph,║ I▓ also║ [was] in my dream,║ and, behold,▓ [I had] three║ white║ baskets║ on▓ my head:║ 17 And in the uppermost║ basket║ [there was] of all manner╣▓▓ of bakemeats║║¬▓ for Pharaoh;║ and the birds║ did eat║¬ them out of▓ the basket║ upon║▓ my head.║ 18 And Joseph║ answered║¬ and said,║¬ This▓ [is] the interpretation║ thereof: The three║ baskets║ [are] three║ days:║ 19 Yet▓ within three║ days║ shall Pharaoh║ lift up║¬▓ thy head║ from off▓▓ thee, and shall hang║¬ thee on▓ a tree;║ and the birds║ shall eat║¬▓ thy flesh║ from off▓▓ thee.
