15 When Joseph's brothers saw that their father was dead, they said, "1What if Joseph bears a grudge against us and pays us back in full for all the wrong which we did to him!" 16 So they asent a message to Joseph, saying, "Your father charged before he died, saying, 17 'Thus you shall say to Joseph, "Please forgive, I beg you, the transgression of your brothers and their sin, for they did you wrong."' And now, please forgive the transgression of the servants of the God of your father." And Joseph wept when they spoke to him. 18 Then his brothers also came and 2fell down before him and said, "Behold, we are your servants." 19 But Joseph said to them, "Do not be afraid, for am I in God's place? 20 "As for you, 3you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good in order to bring about bthis present result, to preserve many people alive. 21 "So therefore, do not be afraid; 4I will provide for you and your little ones." So he comforted them and spoke ckindly to them.
