When the chief baker saw that Joseph had given the first dream such a positive interpretation, he said to Joseph, “I had a dream, too. In my dream there were three baskets of white pastries stacked on my head.
The top basket contained all kinds of pastries for Pharaoh, but the birds came and ate them from the basket on my head.”
“This is what the dream means,” Joseph told him. “The three baskets also represent three days.
Three days from now Pharaoh will lift you up 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 prepared a banquet for all his officials and staff. He summoned his chief cup-bearer and chief baker to join the other officials.

He then restored the chief cup-bearer to his former position, so he could again hand Pharaoh his cup.
But Pharaoh impaled the chief baker, just as Joseph had predicted when he interpreted his dream.
Pharaoh’s chief cup-bearer, however, forgot all about Joseph, never giving him another thought.
