Text Commentary

1And Pharaoh's son lifted himself up from the ground and sat up; and he spat blood from his mouth, because his blood was running from his temple into 1 Lit. ‘in’. his mouth. 2And Benjamin advanced upon him 2 upon him = BFA: D om. and took hold of his sword 3 D adds ‘to strike him’. and drew it from its scabbard (for Benjamin had no sword of his own with him). 3And as he was about to strike Pharaoh's son, Levi rushed up and seized him by the hand and said, No brother, you must not do this, for we are men who worship God, and it is not right for a man who worships God to repay evil for evil, or to trample upon a man who has already fallen, or to harry his enemy to death. 4But come: let us bind up 4 Lit. ‘let us heal him from’. his wound; and if he lives, he will be our friend, and his father Pharaoh will be our father. 5And Levi raised Pharaoh's son up and washed the blood off his face and bound a bandage round his wound; and he set him on his horse and took him to his father. 6,7And Levi told him everything that had happened. And Pharaoh got up 5 So BFGA: D ‘And when Pharaoh heard he got up’. from his throne and made obeisance to Levi upon the ground. 6 B adds ‘and he blessed him.’ 8And on the third day Pharaoh's son died from the wound of Benjamin's stone. 7 So BFG: D ‘his wound which Benjamin gave him’. 9And Pharaoh mourned for his eldest son, 8 for … son = BA: D ‘and all the council of the palace’. and he was worn out with grief. 10And Pharaoh 9 So B Slav.: D ‘he’. died at 10 D adds ‘about’. the age of one hundred and nine; and he left his crown 11 So BEGA: F ‘the crown of his kingdom’; D ‘his dominion and his crown’. to Joseph. 11And Joseph was king in Egypt for 10 D adds ‘about’. forty-eight years. 12And after this Joseph gave the crown to Pharaoh's grandson; and Joseph was like a father to him in Egypt.
