40:1And it chaunced after this, that the chefe butlar of the kyng of Egypte and hys chefe baker had offended their Lorde the kynge of Egipte.
40:2And Pharao was angrye wt them and put them inwarde in hys chefe marshals house:
40:3euen in the preson where Ioseph was bound.
40:4And the chefe marshall gaue Ioseph a charge wyth them, and he serued them. And they contynued a season inwarde.
40:5And they dreamed ether of them in one nyghte: both the butlar and the baker of the kynge of Egypte whych were bounde in the preson house, ether of them hys dreame, and eche mannes dreame of a sondrye interpretacion.
40:6When Ioseph came in vnto them in the mornyng, & loked vpon them: beholde, they were sadd. And he asked them saying:
40:7wherfore loke ye so sadly to day?
40:8They answered him, we haue dreamed a dreame, & haue no man to declare it. And Ioseph sayd vnto them. Interpretynge belongeth to God but tell me yet.
40:9And the chefe butlar tolde his dreame to Ioseph and sayde vnto hym. In my dreame me thought there stode a vyne before me,
40:10& in the vyne were .iij. braunches, and it was as though it budded, and her blossoms shott forth: & the grapes there of waxed rype.
40:11And I had Pharaos cuppe in my hand, and toke of the grapes & wronge them into Pharaos cuppe, & delyuered Pharaos cuppe in to hys hande.
40:12And Ioseph sayd vnto him, this is the interpretacion of it.
40:13The .iij. braunches are thre dayes: for wythin thre dayes shall Pharao lyft vp thyne heade, & restore the vnto thyne offyce agayne, and thou shalt delyuer Pharaos cuppe in to his hande, after the old maner, euen as thou dydest when thou wast his butlar.
40:14But thynke on me wyth the, when thou art in good case, and shewe mercy vnto me. And make mencion of me to Pharao, & helpe to brynge me oute of thys house:
40:15for I was stollen out of the lande of the Hebrues, & here also haue I done nothing at all wherfore they should haue put me in to thys dongeon.
40:16When the chefe baker sawe that he had well interpretate it, 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 of all maner bakemeates for Pharao. And the byrdes ate them out of the basket vpon my head.
40:18Ioseph answered and sayde: thys is the interpretacion therof. The .iij. baskettes are .iij. dayes,
40:19for thys daye .iij. 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 day which 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 his seruauntes.
40:21And restored the chefe buttelar vnto hys buttelarshippe agayne, and he reched the cuppe in to Pharaos hande,
40:22and hanged the chefe baker euen as Ioseph had interpretated vnto them.
40:23Notwythstandyng the chefe buttelar remembred not Ioseph, but forgat hym.

Matthew's Bible 1537

The Matthew Bible, also known as Matthew's Version, was first published in 1537 by John Rogers, under the pseudonym "Thomas Matthew". It combined the New Testament of William Tyndale, and as much of the Old Testament as he had been able to translate before being captured and put to death, with the translations of Myles Coverdale as to the balance of the Old Testament and the Apocrypha, except the Apocryphal Prayer of Manasses. It is thus a vital link in the main sequence of English Bible translations.
