{Genesis 40:4} And the captain 8269 of the guard 2876 charged 6485 z8799 x853 Joseph 3130 with x854 them, and he served 8334 z8762 them: and they continued x1961 a season 3117 in ward. 4929
the captain:
"And the Midianites sold him into Egypt unto Potiphar, an officer of Pharaoh's, [and] captain of the guard." {Gen 37:36} + "And Joseph was brought down to Egypt; and Potiphar, an officer of Pharaoh, captain of the guard, an Egyptian, bought him of the hands of the Ishmeelites, which had brought him down thither." {Gen 39:1} + "But the LORD was with Joseph, and shewed him mercy, and gave him favour in the sight of the keeper of the prison. ... The keeper of the prison looked not to any thing [that was] under his hand; because the LORD was with him, and [that] which he did, the LORD made [it] to prosper." {Gen 39:21-23} + "Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring [it] to pass." {Psa 37:5}
a season:
Yamim, literally days; how long is uncertain, though the word may signify, as many suppose, a complete year (see note on "And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the LORD." {Gen 4:3} and see note on "And her brother and her mother said, Let the damsel abide with us [a few] days, at the least ten; after that she shall go." {Gen 24:55}); and as Pharaoh called them to an account on his birthday ("And it came to pass the third day, [which was] Pharaoh's birthday, that he made a feast unto all his servants: and he lifted up the head of the chief butler and of the chief baker among his servants." {Gen 40:20}), Calmet supposes they had offended on the preceding birthday, and thus had been one whole year in prison.
