Genesis 40-happy Birthday to Pharaoh

The first birthday in the bible appears in Genesis 40:20 as written:

” וַיְהִ֣י ׀ בַּיּ֣וֹם הַשְּׁלִישִׁ֗י י֚וֹם הֻלֶּ֣דֶת אֶת־פַּרְעֹ֔ה וַיַּ֥עַשׂ מִשְׁתֶּ֖ה לְכָל־עֲבָדָ֑יו וַיִּשָּׂ֞א אֶת־רֹ֣אשׁ ׀ שַׂ֣ר הַמַּשְׁקִ֗ים וְאֶת־רֹ֛אשׁ שַׂ֥ר הָאֹפִ֖ים בְּת֥וֹךְ עֲבָדָֽיו׃

On the third day—his birthday—Pharaoh made a banquet for all his officials, and he singled out his chief cupbearer and his chief baker from among his officials.

However, this is not just a day that you celebrate for the king, it’s also a day when the dreams of the baker and the butler came true-one would have more birthdays and the other just won’t have the chance to celebrate since he didn’t take care of his king, in reality and in his dreams!

May you all have good dreams and a great weekend!
