Genesis 41:9-14

Context
41:9 Then the chief cupbearer said to Pharaoh, “Today I recall my failures. 1  41:10 Pharaoh was enraged with his servants, and he put me in prison in the house of the captain of the guards – me and the chief baker. 41:11 We each had a dream one night; each of us had a dream with its own meaning. 2  41:12 Now a young man, a Hebrew, a servant 3  of the captain of the guards, 4  was with us there. We told him our dreams, 5  and he interpreted the meaning of each of our respective dreams for us. 6  41:13 It happened just as he had said 7  to us – Pharaoh 8  restored me to my office, but he impaled the baker.” 9 

41:14 Then Pharaoh summoned 10  Joseph. So they brought him quickly out of the dungeon; he shaved himself, changed his clothes, and came before Pharaoh.
