Bible: Genesis 40:9-15

40:9 So the chief cupbearer told his dream to Joseph: 1  “In my dream, there was a vine in front of me. 40:10 On the vine there were three branches. As it budded, its blossoms opened and its clusters ripened into grapes. 40:11 Now Pharaoh’s cup was in my hand, so I took the grapes, squeezed them into his 2  cup, and put the cup in Pharaoh’s hand.” 3 

40:12This is its meaning,” Joseph said to him. “The three branches represent 4  three days. 40:13 In three more days Pharaoh will reinstate you 5  and restore you to your office. You will put Pharaoh’s cup in his hand, just as you did before 6  when you were cupbearer. 40:14 But remember me 7  when it goes well for you, and show 8  me kindness. 9  Make mention 10  of me to Pharaoh and bring me out of this prison, 11  40:15 for I really was kidnapped 12  from the land of the Hebrews and I have done nothing wrong here for which they should put me in a dungeon.”
