Why, on the way back to Egypt, does the Pasuk mention Yosef's brothers before the Egyptians who accompanied him, whereas on the way out, it mentions the Egyptians first?


Rashi: Because when the latter saw the great Kavod that the kings of Cana'an gave Ya'akov, 1 they treated them with respect.


Tosfos ha'Shalem (2, citing Riva), Hadar Zekenim: The Mitzriyim did so amidst fear lest the brothers return to Eretz Cana'an. (Therefore, they placed themselves between the brothers and Eretz Yisrael Cana'an - PF.) 2


Refer to 50:10:1:2.


See Oznayim la'Torah, who asks that their children were still in Egypt?

Sotah, 13a: When it came to the actual burial, the brotherss said 'It is more Kavod for our father to be buried by a king than by ordinary people
