Yosef remains Yosef


The Torah states, at the start of Shemot and after a list of the sons of Yaakov: "And Yosef was in Egypt."

Rashi: "What does this come to teach us? Don't we know that he was in Egypt? It comes to instruct you about Yosef's righteousness. He was Yosef who herded his father's sheep, he was Yosef who was in Egypt and became king and remained righteous."

(Rashi to Shemot 1:5)

Have a great day,
