1 It happened some time later that the king of Egypt's cup-bearer and his baker offended their master the king of Egypt.
Gen 40:13 Esth 6:1 Gen 39:20-23 Neh 1:11-2
2 Pharaoh was angry with his two officials, the chief cup-bearer and the chief baker,
Prov 16:14 1Chr 27:27 Acts 12:20 Ps 76:10 Prov 19:12 Prov 19:19 Prov 27:4
3 and put them in custody in the house of the commander of the guard, in the gaol where Joseph was a prisoner.
Gen 39:20 Gen 39:23
4 The commander of the guard assigned Joseph to them to attend to their wants, and they remained in custody for some time.
Gen 37:36 Gen 39:1 Gen 39:21-23 Ps 37:5
5 Now both of them had dreams on the same night, each with its own meaning for the cup-bearer and the baker of the king of Egypt, who were prisoners in the gaol.
Gen 41:11 Dan 2:1-3 Dan 4:5 Dan 4:9 Dan 4:19 Dan 7:1-8 Esth 6:1
6 When Joseph came to them in the morning, he saw that they looked gloomy,
Dan 2:1-3 Dan 4:5 Dan 5:6 Dan 7:28 Dan 8:27 Gen 40:8 Gen 41:8
7 and he asked the two officials who were in custody with him in his master's house, 'Why these sad looks today?'
Neh 2:2 1Sam 1:8 2Sam 13:4 Judg 18:24 Luke 24:17
8 They replied, 'We have each had a dream, but there is no one to interpret it.' 'Are not interpretations God's business?' Joseph asked them. 'Tell me about them.'
Gen 41:15-16 Dan 2:47 Dan 2:28 1Cor 12:10-11 Amos 3:7 Dan 2:11 Dan 4:8
9 So the chief cup-bearer described his dream to Joseph, telling him, 'In my dream there was a vine in front of me.
Dan 2:31 Dan 4:8 Dan 4:10-18 Gen 37:5-10 Judg 7:13-15
10 On the vine were three branches; no sooner had it budded than it blossomed, and its clusters became ripe grapes.
11 I had Pharaoh's cup in my hand; I picked the grapes and squeezed them into Pharaoh's cup, and put the cup into Pharaoh's hand.'
1Kgs 10:5 2Chr 9:4 Gen 40:21 Neh 1:11-1 Gen 49:11 Lev 10:9 Prov 3:10
12 'This is what it means,' Joseph told him. 'The three branches are three days.
Gen 41:12 Judg 7:14 Gen 40:18 Gen 41:25-26 1Cor 10:4 Dan 2:36-45 Dan 4:19-33
13 In another three days Pharaoh will lift up your head by restoring you to your position. Then you will hand Pharaoh his cup, as you did before, when you were his cup-bearer.
2Kgs 25:27 Jer 52:31 Ps 3:3 Gen 7:4 Gen 40:19-22
14 But be sure to remember me when things go well with you, and keep faith with me by kindly reminding Pharaoh about me, to get me out of this house.
Josh 2:12 1Kgs 2:7 Luke 23:42 1Cor 7:21 1Sam 20:14-15 1Sam 25:31 2Sam 9:1
15 I was kidnapped from the land of the Hebrews in the first place, and even here I have done nothing to warrant being put in the dungeon.'
Gen 39:20 1Pet 3:17-18 1Sam 24:11 1Tim 1:10 Acts 24:12-21 Acts 25:10-11 Dan 6:22
16 The chief baker, seeing that the interpretation had been favourable, said to Joseph, 'I too had a dream; there were three wicker trays on my head.
17 In the top tray there were all kinds of pastries for Pharaoh, such as a baker might make, and the birds were eating them off the tray on my head.'
Gen 49:20 1Chr 12:20
18 Joseph replied as follows, 'This is what it means: the three trays are three days.
Gen 40:12 1Cor 10:4 1Cor 11:24 Gen 41:26
19 In another three days Pharaoh will lift up your head by hanging you on a gallows, and the birds will eat the flesh off your bones.'
Gen 40:22 1Sam 17:44 1Sam 17:46 2Sam 21:6 2Sam 21:10 Acts 20:27 Deut 21:22-23
20 And so it happened; the third day was Pharaoh's birthday and he gave a banquet for all his officials. Of his officials he lifted up the head of the chief cup-bearer and the chief baker,
Gen 40:13 Gen 40:19 Matt 14:6 Mark 6:21 2Kgs 25:27 Esth 1:3 Gen 21:8
21 the chief cup-bearer by restoring him to his cup-bearing, so that he again handed Pharaoh his cup;
Gen 40:13 Neh 2:1
22 and by hanging the chief baker, as Joseph had explained to them.
Gen 40:19 Acts 5:30 Dan 2:19-23 Dan 2:30 Dan 5:12 Gen 40:8 Gen 41:11-13
23 But the chief cup-bearer did not remember Joseph; he had forgotten him.
