Next morning, his spirit was agitated, and he sent for all the magicians of Egypt, and all its wise men; and Pharaoh told them his dreams, but none could interpret them for Pharaoh.
According to some commentators, Pharaoh had actually dreamt the interpretation of his dreams, as well. Although he couldn’t remember the interpretations he knew for sure that the interpretations given to him by his wizards were not accurate.
One commentator says that Pharaoh sentenced all his wizards to death due to their inability to interpret the dreams.
(Yafe Tohar p.483-484)
