40:1And it chaunced after this, that the butteler of the kynge of Egypte and hys baker had offended their Lorde the kynge of Egypte.
40:2And Pharao was angrye agaynst his two offycers: agaynst the chefe butler & the chefe baker: and put them in warde in hys chefe stewardes house:
40:3euen in the preson and place where Ioseph was bounde.
40:4And the chefe Stewarde gaue Ioseph a charge with them, & he serued them. And they contynued a season in warde.
40:5And they dreamed ether of them in one nyght: both the butteler and the baker of the kynge of Egypte which were bounde in the preson house, ether of them his dreame, and eache mannes dreame of a sondrye interpretacyon.
40:6When Ioseph came in vnto them in the mornynge, and loked vpon them: beholde, they were sadd. And he asked Pharaos offycers that were with hym in hys masters warde sayinge:
40:7Wherfore loke ye so sadly to daye?
40:8They answered hym: we haue dreamed a dreame, and haue no man to declare it. And Ioseph sayde vnto them: Do not interpretynges belonge to God: yet tell me?
40:9And the chefe butlar tolde his dreame to Ioseph, and sayde vnto him: In my dreame me thought there stode a vyne before me,
40:10and in the vyne were .iij. braunches, and it was as though it budded, and her blossoms shott forth: and the grapes there of waxed type.
40:11And I had Pharaos cuppe in my hande and toke of the grapes and wronge them in to Pharaos cuppe, and delyuered Pharaos cuppe in to hys hande.
40:12And Ioseph sayde vnto hym: thys is the intrepretacion of it.
40:13The thre braunches ar thre dayes: for wythin thre dayes shall Pharao lyft vp thyne heade and restore the vnto thyne offyce agayne, and thou shalt delyuer Pharaos cuppe in to hys hande, after the old maner wherin thou wast wont to geue hym drynke.
40:14But yf thou thynke on me wyth the, when thou art in good case, shewe mercye (I praye the) vnto me. And make mencion of me to Pharao, and brynge me out of thys house:
40:15for I was stollen out of the lande of the Hebrues, and here also haue I done nothynge at all, wherfore they shulde haue put me in to thys dongeon.
40:16When the chefe baker sawe that the interpretacyon was good, he sayde vnto Ioseph: me thought also in my dreame, that I had .iij. wyker baskettes on my heade.
40:17And in the vppermost basket there was of all maner bakemeates for Pharao. And the byrdes dyd eate them out of the basket that was vpon my head.
40:18And Ioseph answered and sayde: thys is the interpretacyon therof. The thre baskettes are thre dayes,
40:19for thys daye thre dayes shall Pharao take thy heade from the, and shall hange the on a tree, and the byrdes shall eate thy fleshe from of the.
40:20And it came to passe the thyrde daye whych was Pharaos byrth daye that he made a feast vnto all hys seruauntes. And he lyfted vp the head of the chefe buttelar and of the chefe baker amonge hys seruauntes.
40:21And restored the chefe buttelar vnto hys buttelarshyppe agayne: whych also reched the cuppe into Pharaos hande,
40:22but he hanged the chefe baker: euen as Ioseph had interpreted vnto them.
40:23Neyther dyd the chefe buttelar remembre Ioseph, but forgat hym.

The Great Bible 1539

The Great Bible of 1539 was the first authorized edition of the Bible in English, authorized by King Henry VIII of England to be read aloud in the church services of the Church of England. The Great Bible was prepared by Myles Coverdale, working under commission of Thomas, Lord Cromwell, Secretary to Henry VIII and Vicar General. In 1538, Cromwell directed the clergy to provide "one book of the bible of the largest volume in English, and the same set up in some convenient place within the said church that ye have care of, whereas your parishioners may most commodiously resort to the same and read it."
