The First Book of Moses, called Genesis
創世記 第40章

40-1 And it came to pass after these things, that the butler of the king of Egypt and his baker offended their lord the king of Egypt. これらの事の後、エジプト王の給仕役と料理役とがその主君エジプト王に罪を犯した。
40-2 And Pharaoh was wroth against his two officers, against the chief of the butlers, and against the chief of the bakers. パロはふたりの役人、すなわち給仕役の長と料理役の長に向かって憤り、
40-3 And he put them in ward in the house of the captain of the guard, into the prison, the place where Joseph was bound. 衛長の家の監禁所、すなわちヨセフがつながれている獄屋に入れた。
40-4 And the captain of the guard charged Joseph with them, and he ministered unto them: and they continued a season in ward. 侍衛長はヨセフに命じて彼らと共におらせたので、ヨセフは彼らに仕えた。こうして彼らは監禁所で幾日かを過ごした。
40-5 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, who were bound in the prison. さて獄屋につながれたエジプト王の給仕役と料理役のふたりは一夜のうちにそれぞれ意味のある夢を見た。
40-6 And Joseph came in unto them in the morning, and saw them, and, behold, they were sad. ヨセフが朝、彼らのところへ行って見ると、彼らは悲しみに沈んでいた。
40-7 And he asked Pharaoh’s officers that were with him in ward in his master’s house, saying, Wherefore look ye so sad to-day? そこでヨセフは自分と一緒に主人の家の監禁所にいるパロの役人たちに尋ねて言った、「どうして、きょう、あなたがたの顔色が悪いのですか」。
40-8 And they said unto him, We have dreamed a dream, and there is none that can interpret it. And Joseph said unto them, Do not interpretations belong to God? tell it me, I pray you. 彼らは言った、「わたしたちは夢を見ましたが、解いてくれる者がいません」。ヨセフは彼らに言った、「解くことは神によるのではありませんか。どうぞ、わたしに話してください」。
40-9 And the chief butler told his dream to Joseph, and said to him, In my dream, behold, a vine was before me; 給仕役の長はその夢をヨセフに話して言った、「わたしが見た夢で、わたしの前に一本のぶどうの木がありました。
40-10 and in the vine were three branches: and it was as though it budded, and its blossoms shot forth; and the clusters thereof brought forth ripe grapes: そのぶどうの木に三つの枝があって、芽を出し、花が咲き、ぶどうのふさが熟しました。
40-11 and 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. 時にわたしの手に、パロの杯があって、わたしはそのぶどうを取り、それをパロの杯にしぼり、その杯をパロの手にささげました」。
40-12 And Joseph said unto him, This is the interpretation of it: the three branches are three days; ヨセフは言った、「その解き明かしはこうです。三つの枝は三日です。
40-13 within yet three days shall Pharaoh lift up thy head, and restore thee unto thine office: and thou shalt give Pharaoh’s cup into his hand, after the former manner when thou wast his butler. 今から三日のうちにパロはあなたの頭を上げて、あなたを元の役目に返すでしょう。あなたはさきに給仕役だった時にされたように、パロの手に杯をささげられるでしょう。
40-14 But have me in thy remembrance when it shall be well with thee, and show kindness, I pray thee, unto me, and make mention of me unto Pharaoh, and bring me out of this house: それで、あなたがしあわせになられたら、わたしを覚えていて、どうかわたしに恵みを施し、わたしの事をパロに話して、この家からわたしを出してください。
40-15 for 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. わたしは、実はヘブルびとの地からさらわれてきた者です。またここでもわたしは地下の獄屋に入れられるような事はしなかったのです」。
40-16 When the chief baker saw that the interpretation was good, he said unto Joseph, I also was in my dream, and, behold, three baskets of white bread were on my head: 料理役の長はその解き明かしの良かったのを見て、ヨセフに言った、「わたしも夢を見たが、白いパンのかごが三つ、わたしの頭の上にあった。
40-17 and in the uppermost basket there was of all manner of baked food for Pharaoh; and the birds did eat them out of the basket upon my head. 一番上のかごには料理役がパロのために作ったさまざまの食物があったが、鳥がわたしの頭の上のかごからそれを食べていた」。
40-18 And Joseph answered and said, This is the interpretation thereof: the three baskets are three days; ヨセフは答えて言った、「その解き明かしはこうです。三つのかごは三日です。
40-19 within yet 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. 今から三日のうちにパロはあなたの頭を上げ離して、あなたを木に掛けるでしょう。そして鳥があなたの肉を食い取るでしょう」。
40-20 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 the head of the chief baker among his servants. さて三日目はパロの誕生日であったので、パロはすべての家来のためにふるまいを設け、家来のうちの給仕役の長の頭と、料理役の長の頭を上げた。
40-21 And he restored the chief butler unto his butlership again; and he gave the cup into Pharaoh’s hand: すなわちパロは給仕役の長を給仕役の職に返したので、彼はパロの手に杯をささげた。
40-22 but he hanged the chief baker: as Joseph had interpreted to them. しかしパロは料理役の長を木に掛けた。ヨセフが彼らに解き明かしたとおりである。
40-23 Yet did not the chief butler remember Joseph, but forgat him. ところが、給仕役の長はヨセフを思い出さず、忘れてしまった。
