    - saw.  i.e, heard, from the report of others, that there was
      plenty in Egypt.
      The operations of one sense are frequently put for those of
      another in Hebrew; (see the Parallel Passages.)

      {Shallit,} an intendant, protector, ruler, from {shalat,} to
      be over or a protector, to rule:  hence the Arabic {salita,}
      to obtain and exercise dominion, rule; and {sultÉn,} ruler,
      lord, prince, and king.
    
       * Ge 41:40,41; 45:8,26 Ps 105:16-21 Ac 7:10
    - he it was.
       * Ge 41:55,56
    - bowed.
       * Ge 18:2; 19:1; 37:7,9; 44:14 Re 3:9
    
    
    VERSE 7

       * :9-12,14-17,19,20 Mt 15:23-26

       * Lu 24:16 Joh 20:14; 21:4
    
    
    VERSE 9 
     - remembered.
       * Ge 37:5-9
    - Ye are spies.
      Persons who, under the pretence of wishing to buy corn,
      desire only to find out whether the land be so defenceless
      that the tribes to which you belong may attack it
      successfully, drive out the inhabitants, and settle
      themselves in it; or, having plundered it, retire into their
      deserts.  This is a frequent custom among the Arabs to the
      present day.
    
       * :9,16,30,31,34 Nu 13:2,16-20 Jos 2:1; 6:23 Jud 1:24 1Sa 26:4

    VERSE 11 
     - We are, etc.
      We do not belong to different tribes; and it is not likely
      that one family would make a hostile attempt upon a whole
      kingdom; nor, if any serious design had been intended, that
      one man would have sent his sons on so hazardous an
      expedition.
    
    - true men.
       * :19,33,34 Joh 7:18 2Co 6:4

       * Isa 24:22 Ac 5:18

       * Jer 34:17 Mt 7:2 1Jo 1:9 Jas 13 2:13

    VERSE 22 
     - Spake I.
       * Ge 37:21,22,29,30 Lu 23:41 Ro 2:15

       * Ac 28:4 Re 13:10; 16:9
    
    
    VERSE 23 
     - he spake unto them by a interpreter.  Heb. an interpreter was
      between them.
      The {mailitz} does not seem to have been an interpreter in
      our sense of the term; as we have many evidences in this book
      that the Egyptians, Hebrews, Canaanites, and Syrians, could
      understand each other in a general way; and it appears from
      several passages in this very chapter, (particularly ver.
      24,) that Joseph and his brethren understood each others'
      language, as his brethren and Joseph's steward also did (ch.
      19 43:19, etc; compare ch. 39; 49.)  It seems to denote an
      officer who is called in Abyssinia, according to Mr. Bruce,
      {Kal Hatzā,} "the voice or word of the king," who always
      stands at the side of a lattice window of a balcony, within
      which the king sits; who is never seen, but who speaks
      through a hole in the side of it, covered in the inside with
      a curtain, to this officer, by whom he speaks to the persons
      present.
    
       * Joh 16:13,14 2Co 5:20
    
    
    VERSE 24 
     - wept.
       * Ge 43:30 Isa 63:9 Lu 19:41 Ro 12:15 1Co 12:26 Heb 4:15
    - Simeon.
       * Ge 34:25; 49:5-7 Jude 1:22,23
    
    
    VERSE 25 
     - commanded.
       * Ge 44:1,2 Isa 55:1
    - to give them.
       * Ge 45:21 Mt 6:33
    - and thus.
       * Mt 5:44 Ro 12:17-21 1Pe 3:9
    
    
    VERSE 26 
     - laded their asses.
       * Ge 12:16; 24:35; 30:43; 32:5,15; 34:28; 44:3,13; 45:17,23 1Sa 25:18
       * 2Sa 16:2 1Ch 12:40 2Ch 28:15 Ne 13:15 Job 1:3 Isa 30:6
    
    
    VERSE 27 
     - the inn.
       * Ge 43:21; 44:11 Ex 4:24 Lu 2:7; 10:34
    - inn.
      {Malon,} from {loon,} to stay, abide, lodge, denotes any
      place to stay and lodge in, particularly a place where
      travellers usually stop to lodge, which is generally near a
      well, where they fill their {girbehs,} or leathern bottles,
      with fresh water, and having unladen and clogged their
      camels, asses, etc., permit them to crop any little verdure
      there may be in the place, keeping watch over them by turns.
      Our word inn here gives us a false idea, there were no such
      places of entertainment in the desert which Joseph's brethren
      had to pass; nor are there any at the present day.  The only
      accommodation such a place affords is either a well, or a
      {khan,} or {caravanserai,} which is generally no more than
      four bare walls, perfectly exposed, the place being open at
      the top, and furnishing a wretched lodging:  and even these,
      it is probable, were not in use at this early period.
    
    
    VERSE 28 
     - their heart.
       * :36; 27:33 Le 26:36 De 28:65 1Ki 10:5 Ps 61:2 So 5:6
       * Lu 21:26
    - failed them.  Heb. went forth.
      This refers to the spasmodic affection which is felt in the
      breast at any sudden alarm or fright.
    
    - What is.
       * Isa 45:7 La 2:17; 3:37 Am 3:6
    
    
    VERSE 29 
     - Caanan.
       * :5,13; 37:1; 45:17
    - told.
       * Ge 44:24
    
    
    VERSE 30 
     - roughly to us.  Heb. with us hard things.
       * :7-20
    
    
    VERSE 31 
     - true.
       * :11
    
    
    VERSE 32 
     - twelve brethren.

       * Ge 34:10,21 1Ki 10:15 Eze 17:4

     - every man's.
       * :27,28; 43:21
    
    
    VERSE 36 
     - Me have ye.
       * Ge 37:20-35; 43:14
    - all these things are against me.
      {Alay hayoo cullanah,} literally, "upon me are all these
      things:"  rendered by the Vulgate, {in me h'c omnia mala
      reciderunt,} "all these evils fall back upon me;" they lie
      upon me as heavy loads, hastening my death:  they are more
      than I can bear.
    
       * Ge 45:28; 47:12 1Sa 27:1 Job 7:7 Ps 34:19 Ec 7:8 Isa 27:9; 38:10
