He sent his father ten male donkeys carrying Egypt's best products and ten female donkeys carrying grain, bread, and food for his father's trip.
So Joseph sent his brothers on their way. As they were leaving, he said to them, "Don't quarrel on your way back!"
So they left Egypt and came to their father Jacob in Canaan.

"You have convinced me!" Israel said. "My son Joseph is still alive. I will go and see him before I die."
