A41 Joseph's Brothers Return To Canaan
Joseph ordered to load corn bags,
With their money inside the sacks,
On the back of their donkeys:
But they weren't aware of this.
On their way back,
One man opened his sack,
To feed his donkey,
And found his money.
When they went back
And opened all their sacks,
They saw their money inside-
Whatever they all had paid.
Jacob refused to send Benjamin
Just to bring back Simeon,
But Reuben pledged his sons,
And Judah, his life even.
He said, 'I can't send my son.
Now he's the only one,
As my other son is dead,
To lose this son, I can't afford.'
