Verse 12. Was corn in Egypt. The word corn here rather denotes wheat. See Barnes "Mt 12:1".

 

Our fathers. His ten sons; all his sons except Joseph and Benjamin, Ge 42:2. Stephen here refers only to the history, without entering into details. By this general reference he sufficiently showed that he believed what Moses had spoken, and did not intend to show him disrespect.

{k} "But when Jacob heard" Ge 13:1,2 {+} "sent out our fathers first" "The first time"
