SEV Biblia, Chapter 42:1

¶ Y viendo Jacob que en Egipto había alimentos, dijo a sus hijos: ¿Por qu os estis mirando?

Clarke's Bible Commentary - Genesis 42:1

Verse 1.
Jacob saw that there was corn] That is, Jacob heard from the report of others that there was plenty in Egypt. The operations of one sense, in Hebrew, are often put for those of another. Before agriculture was properly known and practiced, famines were frequent; Canaan seems to have been peculiarly vexed by them. There was one in this land in the time of Abraham, chap. xii. 10; another in the days of Isaac, Genesis xxvi. 1; and now a third in the time of Jacob. To this St. Stephen alludes, Acts vii. 11: there was great affliction, and our fathers found no sustenance.

Matthew Henry Commentary

Verses 1-6 -
Jacob saw the corn his neighbours had bought in Egypt, and brough home. It is a spur to exertion to see others supplied. Shall others ge food for their souls, and shall we starve while it is to be had? Havin discovered where help is to be had, we should apply for it withou delay, without shrinking from labour, or grudging expense, especiall as regards our never-dying souls. There is provision in Christ; but we must come to him, and seek it from him.
