do not bring down my father with sorrow to the grave."

Hearing these words of abiding love, Joseph could refrain
himself no longer. He could not but make himself known
unto his brethren.[279] He spake these words to them: "Ye
said the brother of this lad was dead. Did you yourselves
see him dead before you?" They answered, "Yes!"

Joseph: "Did you stand beside his grave?"

The brethren: "Yes!"

Joseph: "Did you throw clods of earth upon his corpse?"

The brethren: "No."
