Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 And it cometh to pass, after these things -- the butler of the king of Egypt and the baker have sinned against their lord, against the king of Egypt; 1 Some time later, the cupbearer and the baker of the king of Egypt offended their master, the king of Egypt.
2 and Pharaoh is wroth against his two eunuchs, against the chief of the butlers, and against the chief of the bakers, 2 Pharaoh was angry with his two officials, the chief cupbearer and the chief baker,
3 and giveth them in charge in the house of the chief of the executioners, unto the round-house, the place where Joseph [is] a prisoner, 3 and put them in custody in the house of the captain of the guard, in the same prison where Joseph was confined.
4 and the chief of the executioners chargeth Joseph with them, and he serveth them; and they are days in charge. 4 The captain of the guard assigned them to Joseph, and he attended them. After they had been in custody for some time,
5 And they dream a dream both of them, each his dream in one night, each according to the interpretation of his dream, the butler and the baker whom the king of Egypt hath, who [are] prisoners in the round-house. 5 each of the two men--the cupbearer and the baker of the king of Egypt, who were being held in prison--had a dream the same night, and each dream had a meaning of its own.
6 And Joseph cometh in unto them in the morning, and seeth them, and lo, they [are] morose; 6 When Joseph came to them the next morning, he saw that they were dejected.
7 and he asketh Pharaoh's eunuchs who [are] with him in charge in the house of his lord, saying, `Wherefore [are] your faces sad to-day?' 7 So he asked Pharaoh's officials who were in custody with him in his master's house, "Why are your faces so sad today?"
8 And they say unto him, `A dream we have dreamed, and there is no interpreter of it;' and Joseph saith unto them, `Are not interpretations with God? recount, I pray you, to me.' 8 "We both had dreams," they answered, "but there is no one to interpret them." Then Joseph said to them, "Do not interpretations belong to God? Tell me your dreams."
9 And the chief of the butlers recounteth his dream to Joseph, and saith to him, `In my dream, then lo, a vine [is] before me! 9 So the chief cupbearer told Joseph his dream. He said to him, "In my dream I saw a vine in front of me,
10 and in the vine [are] three branches, and it [is] as it were flourishing; gone up hath its blossom, its clusters have ripened grapes; 10 and on the vine were three branches. As soon as it budded, it blossomed, and its clusters ripened into grapes.
11 and Pharaoh's cup [is] in my hand, and I take the grapes and press them into the cup of Pharaoh, and I give the cup into the hand of Pharaoh.' 11 Pharaoh's cup was in my hand, and I took the grapes, squeezed them into Pharaoh's cup and put the cup in his hand."
12 And Joseph saith to him, `This [is] its interpretation: the three branches are three days; 12 "This is what it means," Joseph said to him. "The three branches are three days.
13 yet, within three days doth Pharaoh lift up thy head, and hath put thee back on thy station, and thou hast given the cup of Pharaoh into his hand, according to the former custom when thou wast his butler. 13 Within three days Pharaoh will lift up your head and restore you to your position, and you will put Pharaoh's cup in his hand, just as you used to do when you were his cupbearer.
14 `Surely if thou hast remembered me with thee, when it is well with thee, and hast done (I pray thee) kindness with me, and hast made mention of me unto Pharaoh, then hast thou brought me out from this house, 14 But when all goes well with you, remember me and show me kindness; mention me to Pharaoh and get me out of this prison.
15 for I was really stolen from the land of the Hebrews; and here also have I done nothing that they have put me in the pit.' 15 For I was forcibly carried off from the land of the Hebrews, and even here I have done nothing to deserve being put in a dungeon."
16 And the chief of the bakers seeth that he hath interpreted good, and he saith unto Joseph, `I also [am] in a dream, and lo, three baskets of white bread [are] on my head, 16 When the chief baker saw that Joseph had given a favorable interpretation, he said to Joseph, "I too had a dream: On my head were three baskets of bread.
17 and in the uppermost basket [are] of all [kinds] of Pharaoh's food, work of a baker; and the birds are eating them out of the basket, from off my head.' 17 In the top basket were all kinds of baked goods for Pharaoh, but the birds were eating them out of the basket on my head."
18 And Joseph answereth and saith, `This [is] its interpretation: the three baskets are three days; 18 "This is what it means," Joseph said. "The three baskets are three days.
19 yet, within three days doth Pharaoh lift up thy head from off thee, and hath hanged thee on a tree, and the birds have eaten thy flesh from off thee.' 19 Within three days Pharaoh will lift off your head and hang you on a tree. And the birds will eat away your flesh."
20 And it cometh to pass, on the third day, Pharaoh's birthday, that he maketh a banquet to all his servants, and lifteth up the head of the chief of the butlers, and the head of the chief of the bakers among his servants, 20 Now the third day was Pharaoh's birthday, and he gave a feast for all his officials. He lifted up the heads of the chief cupbearer and the chief baker in the presence of his officials:
21 and he putteth back the chief of the butlers to his butlership, and he giveth the cup into the hand of Pharaoh; 21 He restored the chief cupbearer to his position, so that he once again put the cup into Pharaoh's hand,
22 and the chief of the bakers he hath hanged, as Joseph hath interpreted to them; 22 but he hanged the chief baker, just as Joseph had said to them in his interpretation.
23 and the chief of the butlers hath not remembered Joseph, but forgetteth him. 23 The chief cupbearer, however, did not remember Joseph; he forgot him.
