Genesis 43:34

Context
43:34 He gave them portions of the food set before him, 1  but the portion for Benjamin was five times greater than the portions for any of the others. They drank with Joseph until they all became drunk. 2 

1 tn Heb “and he lifted up portions from before his face to them.”

2 tn Heb “and they drank and were intoxicated with him” (cf. NIV “drank freely with him”; NEB “grew merry”; NRSV “were merry”). The brothers were apparently relaxed and set at ease, despite Joseph’s obvious favoritism toward Benjamin.
