17 Thus shall ye speak to Joseph: Oh forgive, I pray thee, the transgression of thy brethren, and their sin! for they did evil to thee. And now, we pray thee, forgive the transgression of the servants of the God of thy father. And Joseph wept when they spoke to him.
18 And his brethren also went and fell down before his face, and said, Behold, we are thy bondmen.
19 And Joseph said to them, Fear not: am I then in the place of God?
20 Ye indeed meant evil against me: God meant it for good, in order that he might do as [it is] this day, to save a great people alive.
21 And now, fear not: I will maintain you and your little ones. And he comforted them, and spoke consolingly to them.
