Genesis 40:22-23

40:22 but the chief baker he impaled, just as Joseph had predicted. 1  40:23 But the chief cupbearer did not remember Joseph – he forgot him. 2 

1 tn Heb “had interpreted for them.”

sn The dreams were fulfilled exactly as Joseph had predicted, down to the very detail. Here was confirmation that Joseph could interpret dreams and that his own dreams were still valid. It would have been a tremendous encouragement to his faith, but it would also have been a great disappointment to spend two more years in jail.

2 tn The wayyiqtol verbal form here has a reiterative or emphasizing function.
