Then Judah went up to him and said, “Please, my lord, let your servant appeal to my lord, and do not be impatient with your servant, you who are the equal of Pharaoh.”
Angels came down from heaven to listen in on the exchange between Yosef and Yehudah.
Yehuda was the only one willing to risk his life to save Binyamin. He even threw himself at Yosef to beg for his release.
Yehudah threatened to take out his sword. Yosef responded by giving a signal to his son Menashe, who then stomped so strongly that the whole palace shook, as if an earthquake took place.
Yehudah then let out a war cry with so much [spiritual] energy that Dan’s son, Chushim, sensed it all the way in Canaan and came instantly to be with the brothers. Yehuda and Chushim then let out a another war cry that caused 300 Egyptian aristocrats to fall to the ground in terror. This look of terror remained with them for the rest of their lives. The scream also caused the cities of Pithom and Ramses to be totally destroyed.
All the brothers then began stomping on the floor as well and the whole earth trembled. It even caused Pharaoh to fall off his throne.
Yehudah was so angry that he had blood streaming down his right eye (some say both of his eyes). So too, a hair in the middle of his chest stood straight up and pierced all 5 garments that he was wearing. His chest became covered with pieces of copper that he would pluck off and chew with his teeth.
Yehudah tried to draw out his sword while everyone was trembling but he was unable to do so. This made him realize that the man in front of him was righteous.
