7. And he asked Pharaoh’s courtministers that were with him in the custody of his lord‘s house, saying, Wherefore are your faces evil today?
8. And they said unto him, We have dreamed a dream and there is no interpreter of it. And Joseph said unto them, Do not interpretations belong to God? tell it me, I pray.
9. And the prince of the butlers told his dream to Joseph, and said to him, In my dream behold a vine was before me.
10. And in the vine were three shoots, and it was as though it budded, its blossom went up, and the clusters thereof ripened grapes.
11. And Pharaoh’s cup was in my hand, and I took the grapes and pressed them into Pharaoh‘s cup, and I gave the cup upon the palm of Pharaoh.
12. And Joseph said to him, This is the interpretation of it; the three shoots three days are these.
