While Joseph was in prison, the king’s Chief Cupbearer incurred the displeasure of the king and was put into prison, assigned to Joseph. After some time had passed, one morning Joseph noticed that the Chief Cupbearer was unusually sad. Joseph learned the reason was due to a dream. Joseph explained that interpretation of dreams belongs to God.
When the Chief Cupbearer shared the details of the dream, God revealed to Joseph that the meaning of the dream foretold that in three days the Chief Cupbearer would be restored to his position with the king. Joseph asked that the Chief Cupbearer remember him and speak a kind word about him, to the king, in order that he could be released from prison.
