43.1–34 : Joseph's brothers’ second journey to Egypt.

1–2 :

Simeon, left as a hostage in Egypt (vv. 14,23 ), is apparently forgotten, for the brothers return only when more grain is needed.

3–7 :

Cf. 42.29–34 .

8–10 :

Again (see 37.26–27 ) Judah is depicted as the hero; see 44.18–34n.

14 :

God Almighty, see 17.1n.

23 :

The Egyptian steward anticipates the emphasis of the story on divine providence ( 44.16; 45.5–8; 50.20 ).

26 :

With all eleven brothers now bowing down (cf. v. 15 ), they unknowingly fulfill the first dream in 37.5–8 (see 50.18n. ).

29–30 :

Joseph was overcome with affection for Benjamin, his only full brother through Rachel.

34 :

Just as Benjamin ( 42.4,38; 43.6–14 ) and before him Joseph ( 37.3–4 ) was favored by Jacob, so here—through Joseph's actions—the brothers watch a son of Rachel enjoy special privilege in the Egyptian court.
