1It happened some time later that the king of Egypt's cup-bearer and his baker offended their masterthe king of Egypt. 2Pharaoh was angry with his two officials, the chief cup-bearer and the chief baker, 3and put them in custody in the house of the commander of the guard, in the gaol where Joseph was aprisoner. 4The commander of the guard assigned Joseph to them to attend to their wants, and they remained incustody for some time. 5Now both of them had dreams on the same night, each with its own meaning for the cup-bearer andthe baker of the king of Egypt, who were prisoners in the gaol. 6When Joseph came to them in the morning, he saw that they looked gloomy, 7and he asked the two officials who were in custody with him in his master's house, 'Why these sadlooks today?' 8They replied, 'We have each had a dream, but there is no one to interpret it.' 'Are not interpretationsGod's business?' Joseph asked them. 'Tel me about them.' 9So the chief cup-bearer described his dream to Joseph, tel ing him, 'In my dream there was a vine infront of me. 10On the vine were three branches; no sooner had it budded than it blossomed, and its clustersbecame ripe grapes. 11I had Pharaoh's cup in my hand; I picked the grapes and squeezed them into Pharaoh's cup, and putthe cup into Pharaoh's hand.' 12'This is what it means,' Joseph told him. 'The three branches are three days. 13In another three days Pharaoh wil lift up your head by restoring you to your position. Then you wilhand Pharaoh his cup, as you did before, when you were his cup-bearer. 14But be sure to remember me when things go wel with you, and keep faith with me by kindlyreminding Pharaoh about me, to get me out of this house. 15I was kidnapped from the land of the Hebrews in the first place, and even here I have done nothingto warrant being put in the dungeon.' 16The chief baker, seeing that the interpretation had been favourable, said to Joseph, 'I too had adream; there were three wicker trays on my head. 17In the top tray there were al kinds of pastries for Pharaoh, such as a baker might make, and thebirds were eating them off the tray on my head.' 18Joseph replied as fol ows, 'This is what it means: the three trays are three days. 19In another three days Pharaoh wil lift up your head by hanging you on a gallows, and the birds willeat the flesh off your bones.' 20And so it happened; the third day was Pharaoh's birthday and he gave a banquet for al his officials.Of his officials he lifted up the head of the chief cup-bearer and the chief baker, 21the chief cup-bearer by restoring him to his cup-bearing, so that he again handed Pharaoh his cup; 22and by hanging the chief baker, as Joseph had explained to them. 23But the chief cup-bearer did not remember Joseph; he had forgotten him.
