Then Pharaoh said unto him, but what hast thou lacked with me,
&c.] Either of an equipage suitable to his birth and marriage, or of provisions for his household, or of honour and respect, or of any favour from him:
that, behold, thou seekest to go into thine own country?
as if not well used where he was, or would be better provided for there:
and he answered, nothing;
he wanted nothing at all, had all he could wish for:
howbeit, let me go in any wise:
he had such an extreme desire to go, that he begged it might not be denied him on any account; whether he acquainted Pharaoh with his view in this request is not said, but it is probable he did, and it is certain Pharaoh gave him leave to go, see ( 1 Kings 11:25 ) .
