After Yosef revealed himself to his brothers, did the brothers ever ask for Yosef's forgiveness for having sold him into slavery? And did Yosef ever formally forgive them? I'm looking for chapter and verse that uses the term "forgive."
Brothers Ask For Forgiveness: Bereshit 50:16-18
Yosef does not explicitly forgive them. Instead he tells them it was all G-d's plan: Bereshit 50:19-21
Rabbeinu Bechaye says that because Yosef never forgave the brothers the 10 Martyrs were killed.
