Genesis 40:19

Genesis 40:19

Yet within three days shall Pharaoh lift up thine head from
off thee
Order thee to be beheaded; so the Targum of Jonathan and Ben Melech interpret it,

``Pharaoh shall remove thy head from thy body with a sword:''
and shall hang thee on a tree;
his body after his head was severed from it, this should be hung upon a gallows or gibbet, and there continue: and the birds shall eat the flesh from off thee;
as they usually do when bodies are thus hung up, see ( 2 Samuel 21:9 2 Samuel 21:10 ) ; this was signified by the birds eating the bakemeats out of the uppermost basket when upon his head, as it seemed to him in his dream.
