1 After this, the cupbearer of the king of Egypt and the baker were guilty before their master, the king of Egypt.
2 And Pharaoh was angry with his two courtiers, the chief butler and the chief baker,
3 and placed them in custody in the house of the chief of the bodyguards, in prison, in the place where Joseph was imprisoned.
4 The chief of the bodyguards assigned Joseph to them, and he served them. And they spent some time in custody.

5 Once, the cupbearer and baker of the king of Egypt, imprisoned in a dungeon, had dreams, each with his own dream, both with one night, each with a dream of special significance.
6 And Joseph came to them in the morning, saw them, and, behold, they were embarrassed.
7 And he asked the courtiers of the pharaohs, who were in custody with him in the house of his master, saying: Why do you have sad faces today?
eight They told him: we had dreams; and there’s no one to interpret them. Joseph said to them: Is not interpretation from God? tell me.
nine And the chief cupbearer told Joseph his dream and said to him: I dreamed, behold a vine before me;
ten there are three branches on the vine; it has developed, color has appeared on it, berries have grown and ripened on it;
eleven and the pharaoh’s cup in my hand; I took the berries, squeezed them into the bowl of the pharaoh and put the bowl in the hand of the pharaoh.
12 And Joseph said to him: This is his interpretation: three branches are three days;
13 in three days the pharaoh will exalt your head and bring you back to your place, and you will give the pharaoh’s cup to his hand, as usual, when you were his cupbearer;
fourteen Remember me, when it will be good for you, and do me good deeds, and mention me to Pharaoh, and lead me out of this house,
fifteen for I am stolen from the land of the Jews; and also here he did nothing, for which he would leave me in prison.
16 The chief baker saw that he had interpreted well, and said to Joseph: I also dreamed: there were three trellised baskets on my head;
17 in the upper basket all Pharaoh’s food, a baker’s product, and birds pecked it from the basket on my head.
18 And Joseph answered and said: This is his interpretation: three baskets are three days;
19 in three days the pharaoh will take off your head from you and hang you on a tree, and the birds will peck your flesh from you.

20 On the third day, the birthday of Pharaoh, he made a feast for all his servants and remembered the chief butler and chief baker among his servants;
21 and he returned the chief butler to his former place, and he gave the cup to Pharaoh’s hand,
22 and he hung the chief baker, as Joseph had interpreted to them.
23 And the chief cupbearer did not remember Joseph, but forgot him.
