Genesis 40:4  (King James Version)
And the captain of the guard charged Joseph with them, and he served them: and they continued a season in ward.

the captain
37:36 Genesis 39:1 Genesis 39:21-23 Psalms 37:5

a season
{Yamim,} literally days; how long is uncertain, though the word may signify, as many suppose, a complete year (see Genesis 4:3 ; 24:55 ); and as Pharaoh called them to an account on his
birthday, (ver. 20,) Calmet supposes they had offended on the preceding birthday, and thus had been one whole year in prison.
