Genesis 42 Summary - The Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges

Ch. 42 (E (J).) Joseph’s Brethren in Egypt

1 5. The descent into Egypt.

6 17. The first interview with Joseph.

18 26. The second interview.

27 38. The return to Canaan.

The whole of this chapter, except Gen 42:5-6 a, 27, 28, is probably from the E narrative. The dramatic interest of the story is admirably sustained. Joseph delays to disclose his identity, until by a succession of tests he has been convinced of his brethren’s honesty.
