Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Genesis 43:12

_ _ take double money — the first sum to be returned, and another sum for a new supply. The restored money in the sacks’ mouth was a perplexing circumstance. But it might have been done inadvertently by one of the servants — so Jacob persuaded himself — and happy it was for his own peace and the encouragement of the travellers that he took this view. Besides the duty of restoring it, honesty in their case was clearly the best, the safest policy.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Genesis 43:11-14.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Genesis 43:12

Take double money — As much again as they took the time before, upon supposition that the price of corn might be risen, or that, if it should be insisted upon, they might pay a ransom for Simeon. And he sent a present of such things as the land afforded, and were scarce in Egypt, the commodities that Canaan exported.
