CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
43:12 Take double money - As much again as they took the time before, upon supposition that the price of corn might be risen, or that, if it should be insisted upon, they might pay a ransom for Simeon. And he sent a present of such things as the land afforded, and were scarce in Egypt, the commodities that Canaan exported.
Joseph then ordered his servants to fill the men's sacks with grain, but he also gave secret instructions to return each brother's payment at the top of his sack. He also gave them supplies for their journey home.
As they emptied out their sacks, there in each man's sack was the bag of money he had paid for the grain! The brothers and their father were terrified when they saw the bags of money.
Then take your brother, and go back to the man.
But as we were returning home, we stopped for the night and opened our sacks. Then we discovered that each man's money--the exact amount paid--was in the top of his sack! Here it is; we have brought it back with us.
We also have additional money to buy more food. We have no idea who put our money in our sacks."
