 40:15
 40:16
40:16 The chief baker saw that [Joseph] was able to give a good interpretation. He said to Joseph, 'I also saw myself in my dream. There were three baskets of fine white bread on my head.
Vayar sar-ha'ofim ki tov patar vayomer el-Yosef af-ani bachalomi vehineh shloshah saley chori al-roshi.



Commentary:

saw myself...
  (Hirsch).

fine white bread
  (Targum Yonathan; Yerushalmi, Betza 2:6; Rambam on Eduyoth 3:10; Ibn Ezra; Ramban; cf. Septuagint; Josephus 2:5:3). Chori in Hebrew, probably something white. Others interpret it as 'baskets of biscuits' (Radak, Sherashim); 'baskets of twigs' (Rashi); 'white baskets' (Ibn Janach); or 'perforated baskets' (Rashbam). In ancient Egyptian, khara means woven.
