Vayomer Par'oh el-Yosef chalom chalamti ufoter eyn oto va'ani shamati aleycha lemor tishma chalom liftor oto.

Commentary:

haircut
  (Targum). Literally, 'he shaved.'

It is not by my own power...
  (Rashi). Or, 'No matter how I [interpret it], let God make it come out good for you' (Ibn Ezra); or 'I cannot do it by myself, but God will tell you what it means' (Rashbam).
