And they said unto him, We have dreamed a dream, and there is no interpreter of it. And Joseph said unto them, Do not interpretations belong to God? tell me them, I pray you.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

40:8 interpretations belong to God. Joseph’s own dreams, the meaning of which God had revealed to him (Genesis 37:5-10), had prepared him for his crucial ministry in Egypt. First he interpreted the dreams of the butler and baker, then eventually of Pharaoh himself. In all these, Joseph realized that God had given both the dream and the interpretation, all in order to accomplish His own purposes.
