14 Only remember me when things are going well with you again - tell Pharaoh about me and get me out of this place.
15 I was kidnapped from the land of the Hebrews. And since I've been here, I've done nothing to deserve being put in this hole."
16 When the head baker saw how well Joseph's interpretation turned out, he spoke up: "My dream went like this: I saw three wicker baskets on my head;
17 the top basket had assorted pastries from the bakery and birds were picking at them from the basket on my head."
18 Joseph said, "This is the interpretation: The three baskets are three days;
19 within three days Pharaoh will take off your head, impale you on a post, and the birds will pick your bones clean."
20 And sure enough, on the third day it was Pharaoh's birthday and he threw a feast for all his servants. He set the head cupbearer and the head baker in places of honor in the presence of all the guests.
21 Then he restored the head cupbearer to his cupbearing post; he handed Pharaoh his cup just as before.
22 And then he impaled the head baker on a post, following Joseph's interpretations exactly.
23 But the head cupbearer never gave Joseph another thought; he forgot all about him.
