Bible Commentary for Genesis 40:5

Wesley's Notes for Genesis 40:5


40:4 The captain of the guard, which was Potiphar, charged Joseph with them - Which intimates that he began now to be reconciled to him.

40:6 They were sad - It was not the prison that made them sad; they were pretty well used to that, but the dream. God has more ways than one to sadden the spirits of those that are to be made sad. Those sinners that are hardy enough under outward trouble, yet God can find a way to trouble them, and take off their wheels, by wounding their spirits, and laying a load upon them.
