And when Joseph's brethren saw that their father was dead, they said, "It may be that Joseph will hate us, and will requite us all the evil which we did unto him." And they sent a message unto Joseph, saying, "Your father did command before he died, saying, 'So shall you say unto Joseph, "Forgive, I pray, the transgression of your brethren, and their sin, for they did unto you evil:" and now, we pray, forgive [our transgression].'" And Joseph wept when they spoke unto him. And his brethren also went and fell down before his face; and they said, "Behold, we are your servants." And Joseph said unto them, "Fear not: for am I in the place of God? And as for you, you meant evil against me; but God meant it for good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive." -- Genesis 50:15-20
