Genesis 45:1 Parallel
CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
45:1 Judah and his brethren were waiting for an answer, and could not but be amazed to discover, instead of the gravity of a judge, the natural affection of a father or brother. [1.] Cause every man to go out - The private conversations of friends are the most free. When Joseph would put on love, he puts off state, which it was not fit his servants should be witnesses of. Thus Christ graciously manifests himself and his loving kindness to his people, out of the sight and hearing of the world. [2.] V.
The second time they went, Joseph revealed his identity to his brothers, and they were introduced to Pharaoh.
After washing his face, he came back out, keeping himself under control. Then he ordered, "Bring out the food!"
For how can I return to my father if the boy is not with me? I couldn't bear to see the anguish this would cause my father!"
2 Samuel 13:9
But when she set the serving tray before him, he refused to eat. "Everyone get out of here," Amnon told his servants. So they all left.
