Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Genesis 43:14

_ _ God Almighty give you mercy before the man — Jacob is here committing them all to the care of God and, resigned to what appears a heavy trial, prays that it may be overruled for good.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Genesis 43:11-14.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Genesis 43:14

God almighty give you mercy before the man! — Jacob had formerly turned an angry brother into a kind one with a present and a prayer, and here he betakes himself to the same tried method. Those that would find mercy with men must seek it of God. He concludes all with this, if I be bereaved of my children, I am bereaved — If I must part with them thus one after another, I acquiesce and say, The will of the Lord be done.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Genesis 43:14

And (c) God Almighty give you mercy before the man, that he may send away your other brother, and Benjamin. If I be (d) bereaved [of my children], I am bereaved.

(c) Our main trust should be in God, not in worldly means.

(d) He speaks these words not so much in despair, but to make his sons more careful to return with their brother.
