1 H6680 And he commanded [H8762] H1004 the steward of his house H559 , saying [H8800] H4390 , Fill [H8761] H582 the men's H572 sacks H400 with food H834 , as much as H3201 they can [H8799] H5375 carry [H8800] H7760 , and put [H8798] H376 every man's H3701 money H572 in his sack's H6310 mouth.
2 H7760 And put [H8799] H1375 my cup H3701 , the silver H1375 cup H572 , in the sack's H6310 mouth H6996 of the youngest H7668 , and his corn H3701 money H6213 . And he did [H8799] H1697 according to the word H3130 that Joseph H1696 had spoken [H8765] .
3 H1242 As soon as the morning H215 was light [H8804] H582 , the men H7971 were sent away [H8795] H2543 , they and their asses.
4 H3318 And when they were gone out [H8804] H5892 of the city H7368 , and not yet far off [H8689] H3130 , Joseph H559 said [H8804] H1004 unto his steward H6965 , Up [H8798] H7291 , follow [H8798] H310 after H582 the men H5381 ; and when thou dost overtake [H8689] H559 them, say [H8804] H7999 unto them, Wherefore have ye rewarded [H8765] H7451 evil H2896 for good?
5 H113 Is not this it in which my lord H8354 drinketh [H8799] H5172 , and whereby indeed [H8763] H5172 he divineth [H8762] H7489 ? ye have done evil [H8689] H6213 in so doing [H8804] .
6 H5381 And he overtook [H8686] H1696 them, and he spake [H8762] H428 unto them these same H1697 words.
7 H559 And they said [H8799] H1696 unto him, Wherefore saith [H8762] H113 my lord H1697 these words H2486 ? God forbid H5650 that thy servants H6213 should do [H8800] H1697 according to this thing:
8 H3701 Behold, the money H4672 , which we found [H8804] H572 in our sacks H6310 ' mouths H7725 , we brought again [H8689] H776 unto thee out of the land H3667 of Canaan H1589 : how then should we steal [H8799] H113 out of thy lord's H1004 house H3701 silver H2091 or gold?
9 H5650 With whomsoever of thy servants H4672 it be found [H8735] H4191 , both let him die [H8804] H113 , and we also will be my lord's H5650 bondmen.
10 H559 And he said [H8799] H1697 , Now also let it be according unto your words H3651 : H4672 he with whom it is found [H8735] H5650 shall be my servant H5355 ; and ye shall be blameless.
11 H4116 Then they speedily [H8762] H3381 took down [H8686] H376 every man H572 his sack H776 to the ground H6605 , and opened [H8799] H376 every man H572 his sack.
12 H2664 And he searched [H8762] H2490 , and began [H8689] H1419 at the eldest H3615 , and left [H8765] H6996 at the youngest H1375 : and the cup H4672 was found [H8735] H1144 in Benjamin's H572 sack.
13 H7167 Then they rent [H8799] H8071 their clothes H6006 , and laded [H8799] H376 every man H2543 his ass H7725 , and returned [H8799] H5892 to the city.
14 H3063 And Judah H251 and his brethren H935 came [H8799] H3130 to Joseph's H1004 house H5307 ; for he was yet there: and they fell [H8799] H6440 before him H776 on the ground.
15 H3130 And Joseph H559 said [H8799] H4639 unto them, What deed H6213 is this that ye have done [H8804] H3045 ? wot ye [H8804] H376 not that such a man H5172 as I can certainly [H8763] H5172 divine [H8762] ?
16 H3063 And Judah H559 said [H8799] H559 , What shall we say [H8799] H113 unto my lord H1696 ? what shall we speak [H8762] H6663 ? or how shall we clear ourselves [H8691] H430 ? God H4672 hath found out [H8804] H5771 the iniquity H5650 of thy servants H113 : behold, we are my lord's H5650 servants H1571 , both we, and he also H834 with whom H3027 H1375 the cup H4672 is found [H8738] .
17 H559 And he said [H8799] H2486 , God forbid H6213 that I should do [H8800] H2063 so H376 : but the man H3027 in whose hand H1375 the cup H4672 is found [H8738] H5650 , he shall be my servant H5927 ; and as for you, get you up [H8798] H7965 in peace H1 unto your father.
18 H3063 Then Judah H5066 came near [H8799] H559 unto him, and said [H8799] H994 , Oh H113 my lord H5650 , let thy servant H1696 , I pray thee, speak [H8762] H1697 a word H113 in my lord's H241 ears H639 , and let not thine anger H2734 burn [H8799] H5650 against thy servant H6547 : for thou art even as Pharaoh.
19 H113 My lord H7592 asked [H8804] H5650 his servants H559 , saying [H8800] H3426 , Have H1 ye a father H251 , or a brother?
20 H559 And we said [H8799] H113 unto my lord H3426 , We have H1 a father H2205 , an old man H3206 , and a child H2208 of his old age H6996 , a little one H251 ; and his brother H4191 is dead [H8804] H3498 , and he alone is left [H8735] H517 of his mother H1 , and his father H157 loveth [H8804] him.
21 H559 And thou saidst [H8799] H5650 unto thy servants H3381 , Bring him down [H8685] H7760 unto me, that I may set [H8799] H5869 mine eyes upon him.
22 H559 And we said [H8799] H113 unto my lord H5288 , The lad H3201 cannot [H8799] H5800 leave [H8800] H1 his father H5800 : for if he should leave [H8804] H1 his father H4191 , his father would die [H8804] .
23 H559 And thou saidst [H8799] H5650 unto thy servants H3808 , Except H6996 your youngest H251 brother H3381 come down [H8799] H7200 with you, ye shall see H3254 H6440 my face H7200 no more [H8800] H3254 [H8686] .
24 H5927 And it came to pass when we came up [H8804] H5650 unto thy servant H1 my father H5046 , we told [H8686] H1697 him the words H113 of my lord.
25 H1 And our father H559 said [H8799] H7725 , Go again [H8798] H7666 , and buy [H8798] H4592 us a little H400 food.
26 H559 And we said [H8799] H3201 , We cannot [H8799] H3381 go down [H8800] H6996 : if our youngest H251 brother H3426 be H3381 with us, then will we go down [H8804] H3201 : for we may [H8799] H7200 not see [H8800] H376 the man's H6440 face H369 , except H6996 our youngest H251 brother be with us.
27 H5650 And thy servant H1 my father H559 said [H8799] H3045 unto us, Ye know [H8804] H802 that my wife H3205 bare [H8804] H8147 me two sons :
28 H259 And the one H3318 went out [H8799] H559 from me, and I said [H8799] H2963 , Surely [H8800] H2963 he is torn in pieces [H8776] H7200 ; and I saw him [H8804] H2008 not since:
29 H3947 And if ye take [H8804] H5973 this also from H6440 me H611 , and mischief H7136 befall him [H8804] H3381 , ye shall bring down [H8689] H7872 my gray hairs H7451 with sorrow H7585 to the grave.
30 H935 Now therefore when I come [H8800] H5650 to thy servant H1 my father H5288 , and the lad H5315 be not with us; seeing that his life H7194 is bound up [H8803] H5315 in the lad's life;
31 H7200 It shall come to pass, when he seeth [H8800] H5288 that the lad H4191 is not with us, that he will die [H8804] H5650 : and thy servants H3381 shall bring down [H8689] H7872 the gray hairs H5650 of thy servant H1 our father H3015 with sorrow H7585 to the grave.
32 H5650 For thy servant H6148 became surety [H8804] H5288 for the lad H5973 unto H1 my father H559 , saying [H8800] H935 , If I bring [H8686] H2398 him not unto thee, then I shall bear the blame [H8804] H1 to my father H3117 for ever.
33 H5650 Now therefore, I pray thee, let thy servant H3427 abide [H8799] H5288 instead of the lad H5650 a bondman H113 to my lord H5288 ; and let the lad H5927 go up [H8799] H251 with his brethren.
