Genesis 40:15  Genesis 41:13

15 For I was actually kidnapped out of the land of the Hebrews, and here also I have not done anything that they should put me into the dungeon.

16 Now when the chief of the bakers saw that the interpretation was good, he said to Joseph, I also saw this in my dream: There were three baskets of white bread on my head.

17 And in the uppermost basket there were all sorts of baked food for Pharaoh, but the birds were eating them out of the basket on my head.

18 And 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 from you.

20 And on the third day, which was Pharaoh’s birthday, he made a feast for all his servants; and he lifted up the head of the chief of the cupbearers and the head of the chief of the bakers among his servants.

21 And he restored the chief of the cupbearers to his cupbearing, and he put the cup into Pharaoh’s hand;

22 But the chief of the bakers he hanged, just as Joseph had interpreted to them.

23 Yet the chief of the cupbearers did not remember Joseph, but forgot him.



1 And at the end of two full years Pharaoh had a dream, and there he was, standing by the River.

2 And there came up out of the River seven cows, fine looking and fat fleshed; and they grazed in the reed grass.

3 Then there came up after them seven other cows out of the River, ugly looking and thin fleshed; and they stood beside the other cows on the bank of the River.

4 And the ugly looking and thin fleshed cows ate up the seven fine looking and fat cows. Then Pharaoh awoke.

5 And he slept and dreamed a second time. And there were seven ears of grain, coming up on one stalk, fat and good.

6 Then there were seven ears, thin and scorched by the east wind, that sprouted after them.

7 And the thin ears swallowed up the seven fat and full ears. Then Pharaoh awoke, and it was a dream.

8 And in the morning his spirit was troubled, so he sent and called for all the magicians of Egypt and all her wise men; and Pharaoh told them his dream, but there was no one who could interpret them to Pharaoh.

9 Then the chief cupbearer spoke to Pharaoh, saying, I do remember my sins today.

10 Pharaoh was angry with his servants, and he put me in custody at the house of the captain of the guard, both me and the chief baker.

11 And we both had a dream in one night, I and he; each of us had a dream with its own interpretation.

12 And a young Hebrew man was there with us, a servant of the captain of the guard. And we told him our dreams, and he interpreted them for us; to each one he interpreted according to his dream.

13 And as he interpreted to us, so it happened; Pharaoh restored me to my office, and he hanged the baker.
