Bible: Genesis 50:18-21

50:18 Then his brothers also came and threw themselves down before him; they said, “Here we are; we are your slaves.” 50:19 But Joseph answered them, “Don’t be afraid. Am 1  I in the place of God? 50:20 As for you, you meant to harm me, 2  but God intended it for a good purpose, so he could preserve the lives of many people, as you can see this day. 3  50:21 So now, don’t be afraid. I will provide for you and your little children.” Then he consoled them and spoke kindly 4  to them.
