Yosef said to him, "This is the interpretation of it: the three branches are three days.
Within three more days, Par`oh will lift up your head, and restore you to your office. You will give Par`oh's cup into his hand, the way you did when you were his butler.
But remember me when it will be well with you, and show kindness, please, to me, and make mention of me to Par`oh, and bring me out of this house.
For indeed, I was stolen away out of the land of the Hebrews, and here also have I done nothing that they should put me into the dungeon."
When the chief baker saw that the interpretation was good, he said to Yosef, "I also was in my dream, and, behold, three baskets of white bread were on my head.
In the uppermost basket there was of all kinds of baked food for Par`oh, and the birds ate them out of the basket on my head."
Yosef answered, "This is the interpretation of it. The three baskets are three days.
Within three more days, Par`oh will lift up your head from off you, and will hang you on a tree; and the birds will eat your flesh from off you."
It happened the third day, which was Par`oh's birthday, that he made a feast for all his servants, and he lifted up the head of the chief butler and the head of the chief baker among his servants.
He restored the chief butler to his butlership again, and he gave the cup into Par`oh's hand;
but he hanged the chief baker, as Yosef had interpreted to them.
