Genesis 40:12–20

12 And Joseph said to him, h“This is the interpretation of it: The three branches iare three days. 13 Now within three days Pharaoh will jlift up your head and restore you to your 2place, and you will put Pharaoh’s cup in his hand according to the former manner, when you were his butler. 14 But kremember me when it is well with you, and lplease show kindness to me; make mention of me to Pharaoh, and get me out of this house. 15 For indeed I was mstolen away from the land of the Hebrews; nand also I have done nothing here that they should put me into the dungeon.”

16 When the chief baker saw that the interpretation was good, he said to Joseph, “I also was in my dream, and there were three 3white baskets on my head. 17 In the uppermost basket were all kinds of baked goods for Pharaoh, and the birds ate them out of the basket on my head.”

18 So Joseph answered and said, o“This is the interpretation of it: The three baskets are three days. 19 pWithin three days Pharaoh will lift 4off your head from you and qhang you on a tree; and the birds will eat your flesh from you.”

20 Now it came to pass on the third day, which was Pharaoh’s rbirthday, that he smade a feast for all his servants; and he tlifted up the head of the chief butler and of the chief baker among his servants.
