So they sent word to Joseph, saying:
Your father left these instructions before he died:
This is what you are to say to Joseph:
I ask you to forgive your brothers
the sins and the wrongs they committed
in treating you so badly.
Now please forgive the sins
of the servants of the GOD of your Father.
When their message came to him, Joseph wept.
His brothers then came
and threw themselves down before him.
"We are your slaves," they said.
~ Genesis 50
