Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Genesis 45:24

_ _ so he sent his brethren away — In dismissing them on their homeward journey, he gave them this particular admonition:

_ _ See that ye fall not out by the way — a caution that would be greatly needed; for not only during the journey would they be occupied in recalling the parts they had respectively acted in the events that led to Joseph’s being sold into Egypt, but their wickedness would soon have to come to the knowledge of their venerable father.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Genesis 45:16-24.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Genesis 45:24

See that ye fall not out by the way — He knew they were but too apt to be quarrelsome; and what had lately passed, which revived the remembrance of what they had done formerly against their brother, might give them occasion to quarrel. Now Joseph having forgiven them all, lays this obligation upon them, not to upbraid one another. This charge our Lord Jesus has given to us, that we love one another, that we live in peace, that whatever occurs, or whatever former occurrences are remembered, we fall not out. For, We are brethren, we have all one father. We are his brethren; and we shame, our relation to him, who is our peace, if we fall out. We are all guilty, verily guilty, and instead of quarrelling with one another, have a great deal of reason to fall out with ourselves. We are forgiven of God, whom we have all offended, and therefore should be ready to forgive one another. We are by the way, a way that lies through the land of Egypt, where we have many eyes upon us, that seek occasion and advantage against us; a way that leads to Canaan, where we hope to be for ever in perfect peace.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Genesis 45:24

So he sent his brethren away, and they departed: and he said unto them, See that ye (g) fall not out by the way.

(g) Seeing he had remitted the fault done to him, he did not want them to accuse one another.
