Genesis 43:1-34

And the famine
<07458>
[was] sore
<03515>
in the land
<0776>_.
And it came to pass, when they had eaten up
<03615> (8765) <0398> (8800)
the corn
<07668>
which they had brought out
<0935> (8689)
of Egypt
<04714>_,
their father
<01>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto them, Go again
<07725> (8798)_,
buy
<07666> (8798)
us a little
<04592>
food
<0400>_.
And Judah
<03063>
spake
<0559> (8799)
unto him, saying
<0559> (8800)_,
The man
<0376>
did solemnly
<05749> (8687)
protest
<05749> (8689)
unto us, saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Ye shall not see
<07200> (8799)
my face
<06440>_,
except
<01115>
your brother
<0251>
[be] with you. {did...: Heb. protesting protested}
If thou wilt
<03426>
send
<07971> (8764)
our brother
<0251>
with us, we will go down
<03381> (8799)
and buy
<07666> (8799)
thee food
<0400>_:
But if thou wilt not send
<07971> (8764)
[him], we will not go down
<03381> (8799)_:
for the man
<0376>
said
<0559> (8804)
unto us, Ye shall not see
<07200> (8799)
my face
<06440>_,
except your brother
<0251>
[be] with you.
And Israel
<03478>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
Wherefore dealt ye [so] ill
<07489> (8689)
with me, [as] to tell
<05046> (8687)
the man
<0376>
whether ye had yet a brother
<0251>_?
And they said
<0559> (8799)_,
The man
<0376>
asked
<07592> (8804)
us straitly
<07592> (8800)
of our state, and of our kindred
<04138>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
[Is] your father
<01>
yet alive
<02416>_?
have ye
<03426>
[another] brother
<0251>_?
and we told
<05046> (8686)
him according
<05921>
to the tenor
<06310>
of these words
<01697>_:
could we certainly
<03045> (8800)
know
<03045> (8799)
that he would say
<0559> (8799)_,
Bring
<03381> (0)
your brother
<0251>
down
<03381> (8685)_?
{asked...: Heb. asking asked us} {tenor: Heb. mouth} {could...: Heb. knowing could we know}
And Judah
<03063>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Israel
<03478>
his father
<01>_,
Send
<07971> (8798)
the lad
<05288>
with me, and we will arise
<06965> (8799)
and go
<03212> (8799)_;
that we may live
<02421> (8799)_,
and not die
<04191> (8799)_,
both we, and thou, [and] also our little ones
<02945>_.
I will be surety
<06148> (8799)
for him; of my hand
<03027>
shalt thou require
<01245> (8762)
him: if
<0518> (0)
I bring
<0935> (8689)
him not
<0518>
unto thee, and set
<03322> (8689)
him before thee
<06440>_,
then let me bear the blame
<02398> (8804)
for ever
<03117>_:
For except
<03884>
we had lingered
<04102> (8701)_,
surely now we had returned
<07725> (8804)
this second time
<06471>_.
{this: or, twice by this}
And their father
<01>
Israel
<03478>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto them, If [it must be] so now
<0645>_,
do
<06213> (8798)
this; take
<03947> (8798)
of the best fruits
<02173>
in the land
<0776>
in your vessels
<03627>_,
and carry down
<03381> (8685)
the man
<0376>
a present
<04503>_,
a little
<04592>
balm
<06875>_,
and a little
<04592>
honey
<01706>_,
spices
<05219>_,
and myrrh
<03910>_,
nuts
<0992>_,
and almonds
<08247>_:
And take
<03947> (8798)
double
<04932>
money
<03701>
in your hand
<03027>_;
and the money
<03701>
that was brought again
<07725> (8716)
in the mouth
<06310>
of your sacks
<0572>_,
carry [it] again
<07725> (8686)
in your hand
<03027>_;
peradventure it [was] an oversight
<04870>_:
Take
<03947> (8798)
also your brother
<0251>_,
and arise
<06965> (8798)_,
go again
<07725> (8798)
unto the man
<0376>_:
And God
<0410>
Almighty
<07706>
give
<05414> (8799)
you mercy
<07356>
before
<06440>
the man
<0376>_,
that he may send away
<07971> (8765)
your other
<0312>
brother
<0251>_,
and Benjamin
<01144>_.
If
<0834>
I be bereaved
<07921> (8804)
[of my children], I am bereaved
<07921> (8804)_.
{If...: or, And I, as I have been, etc.}
And the men
<0582>
took
<03947> (8799)
that
<02063>
present
<04503>_,
and they took
<03947> (8804)
double
<04932>
money
<03701>
in their hand
<03027>_,
and Benjamin
<01144>_;
and rose up
<06965> (8799)_,
and went down
<03381> (8799)
to Egypt
<04714>_,
and stood
<05975> (8799)
before
<06440>
Joseph
<03130>_.
And when Joseph
<03130>
saw
<07200> (8799)
Benjamin
<01144>
with
<0854>
them, he said
<0559> (8799)
to the ruler of his house
<01004>_,
Bring
<0935> (8685)
[these] men
<0582>
home
<01004>_,
and slay
<02873> (8800) <02874>_,
and make ready
<03559> (8685)_;
for [these] men
<0582>
shall dine
<0398> (8799)
with me at noon
<06672>_.
{slay: Heb. kill a killing} {dine: Heb. eat}
And the man
<0376>
did
<06213> (8799)
as Joseph
<03130>
bade
<0559> (8804)_;
and the man
<0376>
brought
<0935> (8686)
the men
<0582>
into Joseph's
<03130>
house
<01004>_.
And the men
<0582>
were afraid
<03372> (8799)_,
because they were brought
<0935> (8717)
into Joseph's
<03130>
house
<01004>_;
and they said
<0559> (8799)_,
Because
<01697>
of the money
<03701>
that was returned
<07725> (8802)
in our sacks
<0572>
at the first time
<08462>
are we brought in
<0935> (8716)_;
that he may seek occasion
<01556> (8705)
against us, and fall
<05307> (8692)
upon us, and take
<03947> (8800)
us for bondmen
<05650>_,
and our asses
<02543>_.
{seek...: Heb. roll himself upon us}
And they came near
<05066> (8799)
to the steward
<0376>
of Joseph's
<03130>
house
<01004>_,
and they communed
<01696> (8762)
with him at the door
<06607>
of the house
<01004>_,
And said
<0559> (8799)_,
O
<0994>
sir
<0113>_,
we came indeed
<03381> (8800)
down
<03381> (8804)
at the first time
<08462>
to buy
<07666> (8800)
food
<0400>_:
{we...: Heb. coming down we came down}
And it came to pass, when we came
<0935> (8804)
to the inn
<04411>_,
that we opened
<06605> (8799)
our sacks
<0572>_,
and, behold, [every] man's
<0376>
money
<03701>
[was] in the mouth
<06310>
of his sack
<0572>_,
our money
<03701>
in full weight
<04948>_:
and we have brought it again
<07725> (8686)
in our hand
<03027>_.
And other
<0312>
money
<03701>
have we brought down
<03381> (8689)
in our hands
<03027>
to buy
<07666> (8800)
food
<0400>_:
we cannot tell
<03045> (8804)
who put
<07760> (8804)
our money
<03701>
in our sacks
<0572>_.
And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
Peace
<07965>
[be] to you, fear
<03372> (8799)
not: your God
<0430>_,
and the God
<0430>
of your father
<01>_,
hath given
<05414> (8804)
you treasure
<04301>
in your sacks
<0572>_:
I had
<0935> (8804)
your money
<03701>_.
And he brought
<03318> (8686)
Simeon
<08095>
out unto them. {I had...: Heb. your money came to me}
And the man
<0376>
brought
<0935> (8686)
the men
<0582>
into Joseph's
<03130>
house
<01004>_,
and gave
<05414> (8799)
[them] water
<04325>_,
and they washed
<07364> (8799)
their feet
<07272>_;
and he gave
<05414> (8799)
their asses
<02543>
provender
<04554>_.
And they made ready
<03559> (8686)
the present
<04503>
against
<05704>
Joseph
<03130>
came
<0935> (8800)
at noon
<06672>_:
for they heard
<08085> (8804)
that they should eat
<0398> (8799)
bread
<03899>
there.
And when Joseph
<03130>
came
<0935> (8799)
home
<01004>_,
they brought
<0935> (8686)
him the present
<04503>
which [was] in their hand
<03027>
into the house
<01004>_,
and bowed
<07812> (8691)
themselves to him to the earth
<0776>_.
And he asked
<07592> (8799)
them of [their] welfare
<07965>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
[Is] your father
<01>
well
<07965>_,
the old man
<02205>
of whom ye spake
<0559> (8804)_?
[Is] he yet alive
<02416>_?
{welfare: Heb. peace} {Is your...: Heb. Is there peace to your father?}
And they answered
<0559> (8799)_,
Thy servant
<05650>
our father
<01>
[is] in good health
<07965>_,
he [is] yet alive
<02416>_.
And they bowed down their heads
<06915> (8799)_,
and made obeisance
<07812> (8691)_.
And he lifted up
<05375> (8799)
his eyes
<05869>_,
and saw
<07200> (8799)
his brother
<0251>
Benjamin
<01144>_,
his mother's
<0517>
son
<01121>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
[Is] this your younger
<06996>
brother
<0251>_,
of whom ye spake
<0559> (8804)
unto me? And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
God
<0430>
be gracious
<02603> (8799)
unto thee, my son
<01121>_.
And Joseph
<03130>
made haste
<04116> (8762)_;
for his bowels
<07356>
did yearn
<03648> (8738)
upon his brother
<0251>_:
and he sought
<01245> (8762)
[where] to weep
<01058> (8800)_;
and he entered
<0935> (8799)
into [his] chamber
<02315>_,
and wept
<01058> (8799)
there.
And he washed
<07364> (8799)
his face
<06440>_,
and went out
<03318> (8799)_,
and refrained
<0662> (8691)
himself, and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Set on
<07760> (8798)
bread
<03899>_.
And they set on
<07760> (8799)
for him by himself, and for them by themselves, and for the Egyptians
<04713>_,
which did eat
<0398> (8802)
with him, by themselves: because the Egyptians
<04713>
might
<03201> (8799)
not eat
<0398> (8800)
bread
<03899>
with the Hebrews
<05680>_;
for that [is] an abomination
<08441>
unto the Egyptians
<04714>_.
And they sat
<03427> (8799)
before him
<06440>_,
the firstborn
<01060>
according to his birthright
<01062>_,
and the youngest
<06810>
according to his youth
<06812>_:
and the men
<0582>
marvelled
<08539> (8799)
one
<0376>
at another
<07453>_.
And he took
<05375> (8799)
[and sent] messes
<04864>
unto them from before him
<06440>_:
but Benjamin's
<01144>
mess
<04864>
was five
<02568>
times
<03027>
so much as
<07235> (8799)
any of theirs. And they drank
<08354> (8799)_,
and were merry
<07937> (8799)
with him. {were...: Heb. drank largely}
