As time went on, it happened that the cupbearer and the baker of the king of Egypt crossed their master, the king of Egypt.
Pharaoh was furious with his two officials, the head cupbearer and the head baker,
and put them in custody under the captain of the guard; it was the same jail where Joseph was held.
The captain of the guard assigned Joseph to see to their needs.
the king's cupbearer and baker, while being held in the jail, both had a dream on the same night, each dream having its own meaning.
When Joseph arrived in the morning, he noticed that they were feeling low.
