discovered by the aid of it that he who was sitting upon the
throne before him was his brother Joseph. Noticing Benjamin's
amazement, Joseph asked him, "What hast thou
seen, and why art thou astonished?" Benjamin said, "I
can see by this that Joseph my brother sitteth here before
me upon the throne." And Joseph said: "I am Joseph thy
brother! Reveal not the thing unto our brethren. I will
send thee with them when they go away, and I will command
them to be brought back again into the city, and I will
take thee away from them. If they risk their lives and fight
for thee, then shall I know that they have repented of what
they did unto me, and I will make myself known unto them.
But if they forsake thee, I will keep thee, that thou shouldst
remain with me. They shall go away, and I will not make
myself known unto them."[252]
