Genesis 43:22 Meaning and Commentary

Genesis 43:22

And other money have we brought down in our hands to buy
food
Double money for a double quantity, or because the price of corn was now doubled; and their bringing this besides the other showed their honest and upright intentions: we cannot tell who put our money in our sacks;
we are quite ignorant of it, and can by no means account for it, and therefore hope no blame will be laid on us.
