"I'll tell you what it means," Joseph told him. "The three baskets mean three days.
Three days from now Pharaoh will cut off your head and impale your body on a pole. Then birds will come and peck away at your flesh."
Pharaoh's birthday came three days later, and he gave a banquet for all his officials and household staff. He sent for his chief cup-bearer and chief baker, and they were brought to him from the prison.
He then restored the chief cup-bearer to his former position,
but he sentenced the chief baker to be impaled on a pole, just as Joseph had predicted.
Pharaoh's cup-bearer, however, promptly forgot all about Joseph, never giving him another thought.
