50:14נ׳:י״ד
1 א

הוא ואחיו וכל העלים אתו. בַּחֲזָרָתָן הִקְדִּים אֶחָיו לַמִּצְרִים הָעוֹלִים אִתּוֹ, וּבַהֲלִיכָתָן הִקְדִּים מִצְרַיִם לְאֶחָיו, שֶׁנֶּאֱמַר וַיַּעֲלוּ אִתּוֹ כָּל עַבְדֵי פַרְעֹה וְגוֹ', וְאַחַר כָּךְ כָּל בֵּית יוֹסֵף וְאֶחָיו, אֶלָּא לְפִי שֶׁרָאוּ כָבוֹד שֶׁעָשׂוּ מַלְכֵי כְנַעַן שֶׁתָּלוּ כִתְרֵיהֶם בַאֲרוֹנוֹ שֶׁל יַעֲקֹב נָהֲגוּ בָהֶם כָּבוֹד:

הוא ואחיו וכל העלים אתו HE AND HIS BRETHREN AND ALL THAT WENT UP WITH HIM — here, speaking of their return to Egypt, it mentions his brothers before the Egyptians who went with him whereas when speaking of their journey to Canaan to bury their father it mentions the Egyptians before his brothers, as it is said, (Genesis 50:7) “and with him went up all the servants of Pharaoh …” and afterwards it states (Genesis 50:8) “and all the house of Joseph and his brothers”. But the explanation is: because they (the Egyptians) saw how much respect the kings of Canaan paid to Jacob by hanging their crowns on his coffin they now treated them (the sons) with much respect and gave them precedence on the return journey (Sotah 13a).
