Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Genesis 42:17-24

_ _ put them ... into ward three days — Their confinement had been designed to bring them to salutary reflection. And this object was attained, for they looked upon the retributive justice of God as now pursuing them in that foreign land. The drift of their conversation is one of the most striking instances on record of the power of conscience [Genesis 42:21, Genesis 42:22].
