40:1 And it came to pass after these things, that the butler of the king of Egypt and his baker offended their lord the king of Egypt.
40:1 Then it came about after these things the cupbearer and the baker for the king of Egypt offended their lord, the king of Egypt.

40:2 And Pharaoh was wroth against his two officers, against the chief of the butlers, and against the chief of the bakers.
40:2 And Pharaoh was furious with his two officials, the chief cupbearer and the chief baker.

40:3 And he put them in ward in the house of the captain of the guard, into the prison, the place where Joseph was bound.
40:3 So he put them in confinement in the house of the captain of the bodyguard, in the jail, the [same] place where Joseph was imprisoned.

40:4 And the captain of the guard charged Joseph with them, and he ministered unto them: and they continued a season in ward.
40:4 And the captain of the bodyguard put Joseph in charge of them, and he took care of them; and they were in confinement for some time.

40:5 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, who were bound in the prison.
40:5 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.

40:6 And Joseph came in unto them in the morning, and saw them, and, behold, they were sad.
40:6 When Joseph came to them in the morning and observed them, behold, they were dejected.

40:7 And he asked Pharaoh's officers that were with him in ward in his master's house, saying, Wherefore look ye so sad to-day?
40:7 And he asked Pharaoh's officials who were with him in confinement in his master's house, "Why are your faces so sad today?"

40:8 And they said unto him, We have dreamed a dream, and there is none that can interpret it. And Joseph said unto them, Do not interpretations belong to God? tell it me, I pray you.
40:8 Then they said to him, "We have had a dream and there is no one to interpret it." Then Joseph said to them, "Do not interpretations belong to God? Tell [it] to me, please."

40:9 And the chief butler told his dream to Joseph, and said to him, In my dream, behold, a vine was before me;
40:9 So the chief cupbearer told his dream to Joseph, and said to him, " In my dream, behold, [there was] a vine in front of me;

40:10 and in the vine were three branches: and it was as though it budded, (and) its blossoms shot forth; (and) the clusters thereof brought forth ripe grapes:
40:10 and on the vine [were] three branches. And as it was budding, its blossoms came out, [and] its clusters produced ripe grapes.

40:11 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.
40:11 "Now Pharaoh's cup was in my hand; so I took the grapes and squeezed them into Pharaoh's cup, and I put the cup into Pharaoh's hand."

40:12 And Joseph said unto him, This is the interpretation of it: the three branches are three days;
40:12 Then Joseph said to him, "This is the interpretation of it: the three branches are three days;

40:13 within yet three days shall Pharaoh lift up thy head, and restore thee unto thine office: and thou shalt give Pharaoh's cup into his hand, after the former manner when thou wast his butler.
40:13 within three more days Pharaoh will lift up your head and restore you to your office; and you will put Pharaoh's cup into his hand according to your former custom when you were his cupbearer.

40:14 But have me in thy remembrance when it shall be well with thee, and show kindness, I pray thee, unto me, and make mention of me unto Pharaoh, and bring me out of this house:
40:14 "Only keep me in mind when it goes well with you, and please do me a kindness by mentioning me to Pharaoh, and get me out of this house.

40:15 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.
40:15 "For I was in fact kidnapped from the land of the Hebrews, and even here I have done nothing that they should have put me into the dungeon."

40:16 When the chief baker saw that the interpretation was good, he said unto Joseph, I also was in my dream, and, behold, three baskets of white bread were on my head:
40:16 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;

40:17 and in the uppermost basket there was of all manner of baked food for Pharaoh; and the birds did eat them out of the basket upon my head.
40:17 and in the top basket [there were] some of all sorts of baked food for Pharaoh, and the birds were eating them out of the basket on my head. "

40:18 And Joseph answered and said, This is the interpretation thereof: the three baskets are three days;
40:18 Then Joseph answered and said, "This is its interpretation: the three baskets are three days;

40:19 within yet 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.
40:19 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. "

40:20 And it came to pass the third day, which was Pharaoh's birthday, that he made a feast unto all his servants: and he lifted up the head of the chief butler and the head of the chief baker among his servants.
40:20 Thus it came about 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 cupbearer and the head of the chief baker among his servants.

40:21 And he restored the chief butler unto his butlership again; and he gave the cup into Pharaoh's hand:
40:21 And he restored the chief cupbearer to his office, and he put the cup into Pharaoh's hand;

40:22 but he hanged the chief baker: as Joseph had interpreted to them.
40:22 but he hanged the chief baker, just as Joseph had interpreted to them.

40:23 Yet did not the chief butler remember Joseph, but forgat him.
40:23 Yet the chief cupbearer did not remember Joseph, but forgot him.
