Gen 40:15

“I was stolen, yes, stolen.” Joseph repeats the verb “stolen” twice for emphasis, using different forms of the verb (an infinitive and then a perfect tense). This is the figure of speech polyptoton, and it greatly emphasizes Joseph’s assertion that he was in prison unjustly. [For more on the figure polyptoton, and the way it is translated, see commentary on Gen. 2:16].
