ዘፍጥረት 40:1-23

የመጠጥ አሳላፊውና የእንጀራ ቤቱ

1ከዚህም በኋላ የግብፅ ንጉሥ የመጠጥ አሳላፊና እንጀራ ቤቱ ጌታቸውን የግብፅን ንጉሥ በደሉት። 2ፈርዖንም በመጠጥ አሳላፊዎቹ አለቃና በእንጀራ ቤቱ አዛዥ፣ በሁለቱም ሹማምቱ ላይ ክፉኛ ተቈጣ፤ 3በዘበኞቹ አለቃ ቤት ወዳለው ዮሴፍ ወደ ተጋዘበትም እስር ቤት አስገባቸው።

4የዘበኞቹም አለቃ እስረኞቹን ለዮሴፍ አስረከባቸው፤ ዮሴፍም በሚያስፈልጋቸው ይረዳቸው ነበር።

እስር ቤት ገብተው ጥቂት እንደ ቈዩም፣ 5ታስረው የነበሩት የግብፅ የንጉሥ የመጠጥ አሳላፊዎች አለቃና የእንጀራ ቤቱ አዛዥ፣ በአንድ ሌሊት የየራሳቸውን ሕልም አዩ፤ የሁለቱም ሕልም ለየራሱ የተለየ ፍቺ ነበረው።

6በማግስቱ ጧት ዮሴፍ ወደ እነርሱ ሲገባ ተክዘው አገኛቸው። 7ስለዚህም፣ “ምነው ዛሬስ ፊታችሁ ላይ ሐዘን ይነበባል?” በማለት አብረውት በጌታው ግቢ የታሰሩትን የፈርዖን ሹማምት ጠየቃቸው።

8እነርሱም “ሁለታችንም ሕልም አየን፤ ነገር ግን የሚተረጒምልን ሰው አጣን” ሲሉ መለሱለት።

ዮሴፍም፣ “ሁልጊዜስ ቢሆን የሕልም ትርጓሜ ከእግዚአብሔር (ኤሎሂም) የሚገኝ አይደለምን? እስቲ ያያችሁትን ሕልም ንገሩኝ” አላቸው።

9ስለዚህ የመጠጥ አሳላፊዎቹ አለቃ እዲህ ሲል ሕልሙን ለዮሴፍ ነገረው፤ ከፊት ለፊቴ አንዲት የወይን ተክል አየሁ፤ 10ተክሏም ሦስት ሐረጎች ነበሯት፤ ወዲያው አቈቊጣ አበበች፤ ዘለላዎቿም ተንዠርግገው በሰሉ። 11የፈርዖንንም ጽዋ ይዤ ነበረ፤ የወይኑን ፍሬ ለቅሜ በጽዋው ውስጥ ጨምቄ ጽዋውን በእጁ ሰጠሁት።”

12ዮሴፍም እንዲህ አለው፤ “እንግዲህ የሕልሙ ትርጓሜ ይህ ነው፤ ሦስቱ ሐረግ ሦስት ቀን ነው፤ 13በሦስት ቀን ውስጥ ፈርዖን ከእስር ቤት ያወጣሃል፣ ወደ ቀድሞ ሹመትህም ይመልስሃል፤ በፊት የመጠጥ አሳላፊ በነበርህበት ጊዜ ታደርግ እንደነረው ሁሉ የፈርዖንን ጽዋ በእጁ ትሰጠለህ። 14እንግዲህ፣ በጎ ነገር በገጠመህ ጊዜ፣ እኔን አስበህ ቸርነት አድርግልኝ፤ ስለ እኔም ለፈርዖን ንገርልኝ፤ ከዚህም እስር ቤት አስወጣኝ፤ 15ከዕብራውያን ምድር ወደዚህ የመጣሁት በአፈና ነው፤ አሁንም ቢሆን እዚህ እስር ቤት የተጣልሁት አንዳች ጥፋት ኖሮብኝ አይደለም።”

16የእንጀራ ቤት አዛዡም፣ ለመጠጥ አላፊዎቹ አለቃ ሕልም፣ የተሰጠው ፍቺ ደስ የሚያሰኝ መሆኑን ሲሰማ፣ የራሱን ሕልም ለዮሴፍ እንዲህ ሲል ነገረው፤ “እኔም ደግሞ ሕልም አይቻለሁ፤ ሦስት መሶቦች40፥16 ወይም ሦስት የሸንበቆ ቅርጫቶች በራሴ ላይ ተሸክሜ ነበር፤ 17በላይኛው መሶብ ውስጥ ለፈርዖን የተዘጋጀ የተለያየ ምግብ ነበረበት፤ ወፎችም ራሴ ላይ ካለው መሶብ ይበሉ ነበር።”

18ዮሴፍም እንዲህ ሲል መለሰለት፤ “የሕልሙ ፍቺ ይህ ነው፤ ሦስቱ መሶብ ሦስት ቀን ነው፤ 19በሦስት ቀን ውስጥ ፈርዖን ከእስር ቤት ያወጣሃል፤ በዕንጨትም ላይ ይሰቅልሃል፤40፥19 ወይም በእንጨትም ላይ ይወጋሃል ወፎችም ሥጋህን ይበሉታል።”

20በሦስተኛውም ቀን የፈርዖን የልደት በዓል ነበረ፤ ለሹማምቱም ሁሉ ግብር አበላ። በዚያኑ ዕለትም የመጠጥ አሳላፊዎችን አለቃና የእንጀራ ቤት አዛዡን ሹማምቱ ካሉበት ከእስር ቤት አወጣቸው።

21የመጠጥ አሳላፊዎቹን አለቃ ወደ ቀድሞ ሹመቱ መለሰው፤ እርሱም እንደ ቀድሞው ጽዋውን ለፈርዖን በእጁ ይሰጠው ጀመር፤ 22የእንጀራ ቤት አዛዡን ግን ልክ ዮሴፍ እንደ ተረጐመላቸው ሰቀለው።40፥22 ወይም ወጋው

23የሆነው ሆኖ፣ የመጠጥ አሳላፊዎቹ አለቃ ዮሴፍን አላስታወሰውም፤ ረሳው።

King James Version

Genesis 40:1-23

1And it came to pass after these things, that the butler of the king of Egypt and his baker had offended their lord the king of Egypt. 2And Pharaoh was wroth against two of his officers, against the chief of the butlers, and against the chief of the bakers. 3And he put them in ward in the house of the captain of the guard, into the prison, the place where Joseph was bound. 4And the captain of the guard charged Joseph with them, and he served them: and they continued a season in ward.

5¶ And they dreamed a dream both of them, each man his dream in one night, each man according to the interpretation of his dream, the butler and the baker of the king of Egypt, which were bound in the prison. 6And Joseph came in unto them in the morning, and looked upon them, and, behold, they were sad. 7And he asked Pharaoh’s officers that were with him in the ward of his lord’s house, saying, Wherefore look ye so sadly to day?40.7 look…: Heb. are your faces evil? 8And 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 me them, I pray you. 9And the chief butler told his dream to Joseph, and said to him, In my dream, behold, a vine was before me; 10And in the vine were three branches: and it was as though it budded, and her blossoms shot forth; and the clusters thereof brought forth ripe grapes: 11And Pharaoh’s cup was in my hand: and I took the grapes, and pressed them into Pharaoh’s cup, and I gave the cup into Pharaoh’s hand. 12And Joseph said unto him, This is the interpretation of it: The three branches are three days: 13Yet within three days shall Pharaoh lift up thine head, and restore thee unto thy place: and thou shalt deliver Pharaoh’s cup into his hand, after the former manner when thou wast his butler.40.13 lift…: or, reckon 14But think on me when it shall be well with thee, and shew kindness, I pray thee, unto me, and make mention of me unto Pharaoh, and bring me out of this house:40.14 think…: Heb. remember me with thee 15For indeed I was stolen away out of the land of the Hebrews: and here also have I done nothing that they should put me into the dungeon. 16When the chief baker saw that the interpretation was good, he said unto Joseph, I also was in my dream, and, behold, I had three white baskets on my head:40.16 white: or, full of holes 17And in the uppermost basket there was of all manner of bakemeats for Pharaoh; and the birds did eat them out of the basket upon my head.40.17 bakemeats…: Heb. meat of Pharaoh, the work of a baker, or, cook 18And Joseph answered and said, This is the interpretation thereof: The three baskets are three days: 19Yet within three days shall Pharaoh lift up thy head from off thee, and shall hang thee on a tree; and the birds shall eat thy flesh from off thee.40.19 lift…: or, reckon thee, and take thy office from thee

20¶ And it came to pass the third day, which was Pharaoh’s birthday, that he made a feast unto all his servants: and he lifted up the head of the chief butler and of the chief baker among his servants.40.20 lifted…: or, reckoned 21And he restored the chief butler unto his butlership again; and he gave the cup into Pharaoh’s hand: 22But he hanged the chief baker: as Joseph had interpreted to them. 23Yet did not the chief butler remember Joseph, but forgat him.
