Genesis 50:19 (King James Version)
And Joseph said unto them, Fear not: for am I in the place of God?
- fear not
- 45:5 Matthew 14:27 ; Luke 24:37 Luke 24:38
- for am I
- It belongs to God to execute vengeance, and Joseph did not intend to usurp his prerogative. Thus he instructed his brethren not to fear him, but to fear God; to humble themselves before God, and to seek his forgiveness.
