Quote:
{12:58} And the brothers of Joseph came [seeking food], and they entered upon him; and he recognized them, but he was to them unknown.

I suggest,
{12:58} And the brothers of Joseph came and entered upon him; and he recognized them but they of him were incognizant.

Quote:
{12:59} And when he had furnished them with their supplies, he said, "Bring me a brother of yours from your father. Do not you see that I give full measure and that I am the best of accommodators?

I suggest,
{12:59} And when he had furnished them with their supplies, he said, "Bring me a brother of yours from your father. Do you not see that I give full measure and that I am the best of accommodators?"

I suggest for the last sentence "and he recognized them while they were of him incognizant"

Yes, that's better:
{12:58} And the brothers of Joseph came and entered upon him; and he recognized them while they were of him incognizant.
