How did Pharaoh know that the wizard’s interpretations were not accurate?
וַיְהִ֤י בַבֹּ֙קֶר֙ וַתִּפָּ֣עֶם רוּח֔וֹ וַיִּשְׁלַ֗ח וַיִּקְרָ֛א אֶת־כָּל־חַרְטֻמֵּ֥י מִצְרַ֖יִם וְאֶת־כָּל־חֲכָמֶ֑יהָ וַיְסַפֵּ֨ר פַּרְעֹ֤ה לָהֶם֙ אֶת־חֲלֹמ֔וֹ וְאֵין־פּוֹתֵ֥ר אוֹתָ֖ם לְפַרְעֹֽה׃
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 actually dreamt the interpretation of his dreams as well.
Although he couldn’t remember the exact interpretations, he knew for certain that the interpretations of 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)
