The second word in Parshas Vayigash seems to be superfluous. The context had already been set in the previous psukim. All following this drama understand what is transpiring at the moment; Yehudah is approaching Yosef. Why does the pasuk use the extra word to him? Rav Dovid of Kotzk zt"l suggests that although Yehudah did not say anything to Yosef at this point that he had not previously said, repeating his words helped him to be more passionate about the content of his words. It is a good reminder for us to focus on our own clarity of thought and presentation when trying to prove a point to others.
