Genesis 40:22 Meaning and Commentary

Genesis 40:22

But he hanged the chief baker
The is, he ordered him to be hanged; because, as the same Targum says, he consulted to kill him (Pharaoh): as Joseph had interpreted to them;
the events as to both answered to the interpretation Joseph had given of their several dreams.

Genesis 40:22 In-Context

20 On the third day, which was Pharaoh's birthday, he gave a feast for all his servants. He lifted up the heads of the chief cupbearer and the chief baker:
21 he restored the chief cupbearer to his position as cupbearer, and he placed the cup in Pharaoh's hand;
22 but he hanged the chief baker, just as Joseph had explained to them.
23 Yet the chief cupbearer did not remember Joseph; he forgot him.
