Genesis 37:25 Additional TranslationsWesley's Notes on the Bible
37:25 They sat down to eat bread - They felt no remorse of conscience, which if they had, would have spoiled their stomach to their meat. A great force put upon conscience commonly stupifies it, and for the time deprives it both of sense and speech.
