      In the East, there is an ancient tradition, that there was a
      Cup which possessed the strange property of representing in
      it the whole world, and all the things which were then doing.
      The cup is called {Jami Jemsheed,} "the cup of Jemsheed," a
      very ancient king of Persia; and they say that it was
      discovered, filled with the elixir of immortality, when
      digging to lay the foundations of Persepolis.  The Persian
      poets are full of allusions to this cup, which they style
      {Jem jehan nima,} the cup shewing the universe; and to it
      they ascribe all the prosperity of their ancient monarchs.
      Many of the Mahometan princes and governors affect still to
      have information by means of a cup.  Now, though it cannot be
      admitted that Joseph practised divination, yet, according to
      the superstition of those times, supernatural influence might
      be attributed to HIS CUP.

      "No paraphrase," says Dr. A. Clarke, "can heighten the effect
      of Judah's address to Joseph.  To add, would be to diminish
      its excellence; to attempt to explain, would be to obscure
      its beauties; to clothe the ideas in other language than that
      of Judah, and his translators in our Bible, would ruin its
      energy, and destroy its influence.  It is perhaps one of the
      most tender, affecting pieces of natural oratory ever spoken
      or penned:  and we need not wonder to find that, when Joseph
      heard it, he could not refrain himself, but wept aloud.  His
      soul must have been insensible beyond what is common to human
      nature, had he not immediately yielded to a speech so
      delicately tender, and so powerfully impressive."
    
    - let thy.
       * Ge 18:30,32 2Sa 14:12 Job 33:31 Ac 2:29
    - anger.
       * Ex 32:22 Es 1:12 Ps 79:5
    - as Pharaoh.
       * Ge 41:40,44 Pr 19:12 Da 3:15,19-23; 5:19 Joh 5:22
    
    VERSE 19
        * Ge 42:7-10; 43:7,29
    
    
    VERSE 20 
     - we said.
      Every word in this verse is simplicity and pathos itself.  No
      man of the least sensibility can read it without great
      emotion.  Indeed the whole speech is exquisitely beautiful,
      and perhaps the most complete pattern of genuine natural
      eloquence extant in any language.  When we read this generous
      speech, we forgive Judah all the past, and cannot refuse to
      say, "Thou art he whom thy brethren shall praise."

        * Ge 43:8,9,16

     - therefore.
      What must Benjamin have felt when he heard his brother
      conclude his speech by a proposal which could never have been
      thought of if it had not been actually made!  Perhaps the
      annals of the whole world do not produce an instance of so
      heroic and disinterested affection in any mere man.
    
    - I pray thee.
