||his ita gestis accidit ut peccarent duo eunuchi pincerna regis Aegypti et pistor domino suo
After this, it came to pass, that two eunuchs, the butler and the baker of the king of Egypt, offended their lord.
||iratusque Pharao contra eos nam alter pincernis praeerat alter pistoribus
And Pharao being angry with them, (now the one was chief butler, the other chief baker,)
||misit eos in carcerem principis militum in quo erat vinctus et Ioseph
He sent them to the prison of the commander of the soldiers, in which Joseph also was prisoner.
||at custos carceris tradidit eos Ioseph qui et ministrabat eis aliquantum temporis fluxerat et illi in custodia tenebantur
But the keeper of the prison delivered them to Joseph, and he served them. Some little time passed, and they were kept in custody.
||videruntque ambo somnium nocte una iuxta interpretationem congruam sibi
And they both dreamed a dream the same night, according to the interpretation agreeing to themselves:
||ad quos cum introisset Ioseph mane et vidisset eos tristes
And when Joseph was come into them in the morning, and saw them sad,
||sciscitatus est dicens cur tristior est hodie solito facies vestra
He asked them, saying: Why is your countenance sadder today than usual?
||qui responderunt somnium vidimus et non est qui interpretetur nobis dixitque ad eos Ioseph numquid non Dei est interpretatio referte mihi quid videritis
They answered: We have dreamed a dream, and there is nobody to interpret it to us. And Joseph said to them: Doth not interpretation belong to God? Tell me what you have dreamed:
||narravit prior praepositus pincernarum somnium videbam coram me vitem
The chief butler first told his dream: I saw before me a vine,
||in qua erant tres propagines crescere paulatim gemmas et post flores uvas maturescere
On which were three branches, which by little and little sent out buds, and after the blossoms brought forth ripe grapes:
||calicemque Pharaonis in manu mea tuli ergo uvas et expressi in calicem quem tenebam et tradidi poculum Pharaoni
And the cup of Pharao was in my hand: and I took the grapes, and pressed them into the cup which I held, and I gave the cup to Pharao.
||respondit Ioseph haec est interpretatio somnii tres propagines tres adhuc dies sunt
Joseph answered: This is the interpretation of the dream: The three branches, are yet three days:
||post quos recordabitur Pharao magisterii tui et restituet te in gradum pristinum dabisque ei calicem iuxta officium tuum sicut facere ante consueveras
After which Pharao will remember thy service, and will restore thee to thy former place: and thou shalt present him the cup according to thy office, as before thou was wont to do.
||tantum memento mei cum tibi bene fuerit et facies mecum misericordiam ut suggeras Pharaoni et educat me de isto carcere
Only remember me when it shall be well with thee, and do me this kindness: to put Pharao in mind to take me out of this prison:
||quia furto sublatus sum de terra Hebraeorum et hic innocens in lacum missus sum
For I was stolen away out of the land of the Hebrews, and here without any fault was cast into the dungeon.
||videns pistorum magister quod prudenter somnium dissolvisset ait et ego vidi somnium quod haberem tria canistra farinae super caput meum
The chief baker seeing that he had wisely interpreted the dream, said: I also dreamed a dream, That I had three baskets of meal upon my head:
||et in uno canistro quod erat excelsius portare me omnes cibos qui fiunt arte pistoria avesque comedere ex eo
And that in one basket which was uppermost, I carried all meats that are made by the art of baking, and that the birds ate out of it.
||respondit Ioseph haec est interpretatio somnii tria canistra tres adhuc dies sunt
Joseph answered: This is the interpretation of the dream: The three baskets, are yet three days:
||post quos auferet Pharao caput tuum ac suspendet te in cruce et lacerabunt volucres carnes tuas
After which Pharao will take thy head from thee, and hang thee on a cross, and the birds shall tear thy flesh.
||exin dies tertius natalicius Pharaonis erat qui faciens grande convivium pueris suis recordatus est inter epulas magistri pincernarum et pistorum principis
The third day after this was the birthday of Pharao: and he made a great feast for his servants, and at the banquet remembered the chief butler, and the chief baker.
||restituitque alterum in locum suum ut porrigeret regi poculum
And he restored the one to his place, to present him the cup:
||alterum suspendit in patibulo ut coniectoris veritas probaretur
The other he hanged on a gibbet, that the truth of the interpreter might be shewn.
||et tamen succedentibus prosperis praepositus pincernarum oblitus est interpretis sui
But the chief butler, when things prospered with him, forgot his interpreter.
