7 And Ioseph saw his brethren, and he knew them, but made himselfe strange vnto them, and spake roughly vnto them; and hee saide vnto them, Whence come ye? And they said, From the land of Canaan, to buy food.
16 Send one of you, and let him fetch your brother, and ye shalbe kept in prison, that your wordes may be proued, whether there be any trueth in you: or els by the life of Pharaoh surely ye are spies.
21 ¶ And they said one to another, We are verily guiltie concerning our brother, in that we saw the anguish of his soule, when he besought vs, and we would not heare: therefore is this distresse come vpon vs.
28 And he said vnto his brethren, My money is restored, and loe, it is euen in my sacke: and their heart failed them, and they were afraid, saying one to an other, What is this that God hath done vnto vs?
38 And he said, My sonne shall not goe downe with you, for his brother is dead, and he is left alone: if mischiefe befall him by the way in the which yee goe, then shall ye bring downe my gray haires with sorrow to the graue.

Wow! What a wonderful transformation in Joseph's life. Only the Lord can do it. Genesis 42:8: And Joseph knew his brethren, but they knew not him. One wonders why his brethren could not recognize him. After all, he has lived with them for seventeen years before he was sold to slavery. They ate, played and were even with the sons of Bilhah and Zilpah his father's wives most of the time. If we endure and pass through the fiery furnace of trials and affliction by the time we are out, we will shine forth as gold at the end. Psalm 40:2: He brought me up out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock and established my goings.

“And I will give to you and to your descendants after you, the land of your temporary residence, all the land of Canaan as an eternal possession and I will be a God to them.” (Genesis 17:8) God wanted Abraham and his descendants to possess the land of Canaan eternally. It was the most fertile land chosen for his people by the God. It is like second to the Garden of Eden which had everything for man but the devil's craftiness and the man's greed made him lose the Garden of Eden. Jacob and his family were in the land of Canaan (the Promised Land) but Jacob failed to stick on the covenant of God, rather he is falling time and again. He looted his brother's rights, spoke lie to his father, married two wives and his children also falling into the trap. They master planned to kill Joseph, slew the man who wanted to marry their sister and so on. As a result the blessings of Canaan seem to be taken away. Canaan the land of honey and milk fails to produce enough even for the family of Jacob. Egypt which is barren and infertile has the blessings of God. From here what we can learn is that God can make opposite of the things. He can make nothing everything and everything nothing. That's why the word of God forewarns us that we need to be watchful all the time. That devil is not happy with what we have achieved. Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour (1 Peter 5:8).

God is now using Joseph to discipline his brothers for the sin they have done, and also allowing the dream of Joseph to come true. This demonstrates the love that God has for us, in that while we were sinners Christ died for us. Joseph wept for his brothers, just as Jesus wept over Israel. Jacob has suffered much because of his sons, and he does not want his gray hairs to go down to the grave in sorrow because of what they have done. Be not deceived God is not mocked, for what so ever a man sows, that shall he also reap. We are told to speak the truth in love, and let every man have his own wife. The trouble in Jacob's family can be traced to being with more than one wife, and loving one more than the other, and the children of that one more than the other children. The things that happened to them are examples for us, so that we will not repeat the mistakes that they made. This is why God does not approve of multiple marriages.

I can relate to Joseph's Pain and weeping.

This chapter was very clear. My one observation is the use of "MISCHIEF". It kinda of make you think that JACOB knew his sons did something with JOSEPH and did not want it to happen to BENJAMIN. "JUST A THOUGHT"
