Joseph Reveals Himself to His Brothers

Then Joseph could not refrain himself before all them that stood by him; and he cried, "Cause every man to go out from me."  And there stood no man with him, while Joseph made himself known unto his brethern...And he said, "I am Joseph your brother, whom ye sold into Egypt.  Now therefore be not greived, nor angry with yourselves, that ye sold me hither: for God did send me before you to preserve life."
