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 Kena'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 Kena'an. (Therefore, they always placed themselves between the brothers and Eretz Yisrael Kena'an - PF.)
