Bible Commentary for Genesis 41:11

Wesley's Notes for Genesis 41:11


41:9 I remember my faults this day - in forgetting Joseph. Some think he means his faults against Pharaoh, for which he was imprisoned, and then he would insinuate, that through Pharaoh had forgiven him, he had not forgiven himself. God's time for the enlargement of his people will appear, at last, to be the fittest time. If the chief butler had at first used his interest for Joseph's enlargement, and had obtained, it is probable, he would have gone back to the land of the Hebrews, and then he had neither been so blessed himself, nor such a blessing to his family. But staying two years longer, and coming out upon this occasion to interpret the king's dreams, way was made for his preferment. The king can scarce allow him time, but that decency required it, to shave himself, and to change his raiment, #Ge 41:14|. It is done with all possible expedition, and Joseph is brought in perhaps almost as much surprised as Peter was, #Acts 12:9|, so suddenly is his captivity brought back, that he is as one that dreams, #Psa 126:1|. Pharaoh immediately, without enquiring who or whence he was tells him his business, that he expected he should interpret his dream.
