Jacob resisted sending his sons back to Egypt even though he knew that Simeon had been detained there. He tried to avert action because he did not want to lose Benjamin, but the severity of the famine forced his hand. At this point, Judah assured him that he would be responsible for Benjamin’s welfare.
Once again Joseph’s brothers prostrated themselves before him in fulfillment of the dreams he had been given. It was an emotional moment for Joseph to see his full brother Benjamin, and he sought to control himself during the serving of the meal.
Reading of Genesis 43
