Genesis 40:2

Genesis 40:2

And Pharaoh was wroth against two [of] his officers
The same above mentioned: against the chief of the butlers, and against the chief of the bakers;
for as there were several butlers and bakers that belonged unto him, who were employed in providing wine and food for him, there was one of each who was over the rest; and as their business was to see that those under them did their work well, when they were faulty the principal officers were answerable for it: wherefore, if in this case they had not been guilty of anything criminal themselves personally, yet they might have neglected to look after those that were under them, and so were culpable, and drew upon them the wrath and resentment of their lord and sovereign.
