“Father,” the brothers told Jacob, “The man who is lord over Egypt spoke harshly to us. He accused us of spying on the land. We told him we are not spies, we are simply a family of twelve brothers, one of whom is no more and the other is with his father in Canaan.
He didn’t believe us and put us in prison for three days. Finally, he said he would keep Simeon in prison until we return with Benjamin.” [Reflection based on the Bible Reference – Genesis 42:29-34]
