12 And Joseph said to him, This is the interpretation of it. The three stems are three days. 13 Yet three days and Pharao shall remember thy office, and he shall restore thee to thy place of chief cupbearer, and thou shalt give the cup of Pharao into his hand, according to thy former high place, as thou wast wont to be cupbearer. 14 But remember me of thyself, when it shall be well with thee, and thou shalt deal mercifully with me, and thou shalt make mention of me to Pharao, and thou shalt bring me forth out of this dungeon. 15 For surely I was stolen away out of the land of the Hebrews, and here I have done nothing, but they have cast me into this pit. 16 And the chief baker saw that he interpreted aright; and he said to Joseph, I also saw a dream, and methought I took up on my head three baskets of mealy food. 17 And in the upper basket there was the work of the baker of every kind which Pharao eats; and the fowls of the air ate them out of the basket that was on my head. 18 And Joseph answered and said to him, This is the interpretation of it; The three baskets are three days. 19 Yet three days, and Pharao shall take away thy head from off thee, and shall hang thee on a tree, and the birds of the sky shall eat thy flesh from off thee. 20 And it came to pass on the third day that it was Pharao's birth-day, and he made a banquet for all his servants, and he remembered the office of the cupbearer and the office of the baker in the midst of his servants. 21 And he restored the chief cupbearer to his office, and he gave the cup into Pharao's hand. 22 And he hanged the chief baker, as Joseph, interpreted to them. 23 Yet did not the chief cupbearer remember Joseph, but forgot him.

12 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ ᾿Ιωσήφ· τοῦτο ἡ σύγκρισις αὐτοῦ· οἱ τρεῖς πυθμένες τρεῖς ἡμέραι εἰσίν· 13 ἔτι τρεῖς ἡμέραι καὶ μνησθήσεται Φαραὼ τῆς ἀρχῆς σου καὶ ἀποκαταστήσει σε ἐπί τὴν ἀρχιοινοχοΐαν σου, καὶ δώσεις τὸ ποτήριον Φαραὼ εἰς τὴν χεῖρα αὐτοῦ κατὰ τὴν ἀρχήν σου τὴν προτέραν, ὡς ἦσθα οἰνοχοῶν. 14 ἀλλὰ μνήσθητί μου διὰ σεαυτοῦ, ὅταν εὖ γένηταί σοι, καὶ ποιήσεις ἐν ἐμοὶ ἔλεος καὶ μνησθήσει περὶ ἐμοῦ πρὸς Φαραὼ καὶ ἐξάξεις με ἐκ τοῦ ὀχυρώματος τούτου· 15 ὅτι κλοπῇ ἐκλάπην ἐκ γῆς ῾Εβραίων καὶ ὧδε οὐκ ἐποίησα οὐδέν, ἀλλ᾿ ἐνέβαλόν με εἰς τὸν λάκκον τοῦτον. 16 καὶ εἶδεν ὁ ἀρχισιτοποιός, ὅτι ὀρθῶς συνέκρινε, καὶ εἶπε τῷ ᾿Ιωσήφ· κἀγὼ εἶδον ἐνύπνιον καὶ ᾤμην τρία κανᾶ χονδριτῶν αἴρειν ἐπὶ τῆς κεφαλῆς μου· 17 ἐν δὲ κανῷ τῷ ἐπάνω ἀπὸ πάντων τῶν γενῶν, ὧν Φαραὼ ἐσθίει ἔργον σιτοποιοῦ, καὶ τὰ πετεινὰ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ κατήσθιεν αὐτὰ ἀπὸ τοῦ κανοῦ τοῦ ἐπάνω τῆς κεφαλῆς μου. 18 ἀποκριθεὶς δὲ ᾿Ιωσὴφ εἶπεν αὐτῷ· αὕτη ἡ σύγκρισις αὐτοῦ· τὰ τρία κανᾶ τρεῖς ἡμέραι εἰσίν· 19 ἔτι τριῶν ἡμερῶν καὶ ἀφελεῖ Φαραὼ τὴν κεφαλήν σου ἀπὸ σοῦ καὶ κρεμάσει σε ἐπὶ ξύλου, καὶ φάγεται τὰ ὄρνεα τοῦ οὐρανοῦ τὰς σάρκας σου ἀπὸ σοῦ. 20 ἐγένετο δὲ ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ τῇ τρίτῃ, ἡμέρα γενέσεως ἦν Φαραώ, καὶ ἐποίει πότον πᾶσι τοῖς παισὶν αὐτοῦ. καὶ ἐμνήσθη τῆς ἀρχῆς τοῦ οἰνοχόου καὶ τῆς ἀρχῆς τοῦ σιτοποιοῦ ἐν μέσῳ τῶν παίδων αὐτοῦ, 21 καὶ ἀποκατέστησε τὸν ἀρχιοινοχόον ἐπὶ τὴν ἀρχὴν αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἔδωκε τὸ ποτήριον εἰς τὴν χεῖρα Φαραώ, 22 τὸν δὲ ἀρχισιτοποιὸν ἐκρέμασε, καθὰ συνέκρινεν αὐτοῖς ᾿Ιωσήφ. 23 καὶ οὐκ ἐμνήσθη ὁ ἀρχιοινοχόος τοῦ ᾿Ιωσήφ, ἀλλ᾿ ἐπελάθετο αὐτοῦ.
