John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Genesis 41:16

(1.) He gives honour to God; It is not in me; God must give it. Great gifts then appear most graceful and illustrious, when those that have them use them humbly, and take not the praise of them to themselves, but give it to God, (2.) He shews respect to Pharaoh, and hearty good — will to him, supposing that the interpretation would be an answer of peace. Those that consult God's oracles may expect an answer of peace.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Genesis 41:16

And Joseph answered Pharaoh, saying, (g) [It is] not in me: God shall give Pharaoh an answer of peace.

(g) As though he would say if I interpret your dream it comes from God, and not from me.
