And [there was] there with us a young man
Who was in the prison with them, had the care of them, and waited upon them; he was then about twenty eight years of age; for it was two years ago he speaks of, and Joseph was thirty when he stood before Pharaoh, ( Genesis 41:46 ) : an Hebrew servant to the captain of the guard;
he first describes him by his age, a young man, then by his descent, an Hebrew, and by his state and condition, a servant; neither of them tended much to recommend him to the king: and we told him;
that is, their dreams: and he interpreted to us our dream, to each man according to his dream
did he interpret;
told them what their dreams presignified, what the events would be they portended; the interpretation was different according to their dreams.
