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 And sure enough, on the third day it was Pharaoh's birthday and he threw a feast for all his servants. He set the head cupbearer and the head baker in places of honor in the presence of all the guests.
21 Then he restored the head cupbearer to his cupbearing post; he handed Pharaoh his cup just as before.
22 And then he impaled the head baker on a post, following Joseph's interpretations exactly.
23 But the head cupbearer never gave Joseph another thought; he forgot all about him.
