1 H6680 [H8762] And he commanded H1004 the steward of his house H559 [H8800] , saying H4390 [H8761] , Fill H582 the men's H572 sacks H400 with food H834 , as much as H3201 [H8799] they can H5375 [H8800] carry H7760 [H8798] , and put H376 every man's H3701 money H572 in his sack's H6310 mouth.
2 H7760 [H8799] And put H1375 my cup H3701 , the silver H1375 cup H572 , in the sack's H6310 mouth H6996 of the youngest H7668 , and his grain H3701 money H6213 [H8799] . And he did H1697 according to the word H3130 that Joseph H1696 [H8765] had spoken.
3 H1242 As soon as the morning H215 [H8804] was light H582 , the men H7971 [H8795] were sent away H2543 , they and their donkeys.
4 H3318 [H8804] And when they had gone out H5892 of the city H7368 [H8689] , and were not yet far off H3130 , Joseph H559 [H8804] said H1004 to his steward H6965 [H8798] , Arise H7291 [H8798] , follow H310 after H582 the men H5381 [H8689] ; and when thou dost overtake H559 [H8804] them, say H7999 [H8765] to them, Why have ye rewarded H7451 evil H2896 for good?
5 H113 Is not this the cup in which my lord H8354 [H8799] drinketh H5172 [H8763] , and by which indeed H5172 [H8762] he divineth H7489 [H8689] ? ye have done evil H6213 [H8804] in so doing.
6 H5381 [H8686] And he overtook H1696 [H8762] them, and he spoke H428 to them these same H1697 words.
7 H559 [H8799] And they said H1696 [H8762] to him, Why saith H113 my lord H1697 these words H2486 ? Far be it from us H5650 that thy servants H6213 [H8800] should do H1697 according to this thing:
8 H3701 Behold, the money H4672 [H8804] , which we found H572 in our sacks H6310 ' mouths H7725 [H8689] , we brought again H776 to thee from the land H3667 of Canaan H1589 [H8799] : how then should we steal H113 from thy lord's H1004 house H3701 silver H2091 or gold?
9 H5650 With whomever of thy servants H4672 [H8735] it shall be found H4191 [H8804] , both let him die H113 , and we also will be my lord's H5650 slaves.
10 H559 [H8799] And he said H1697 , Now also let it be according to your words H3651 : H4672 [H8735] he with whom it shall be found H5650 shall be my servant H5355 ; and ye shall be blameless.
11 H4116 [H8762] Then they speedily H3381 [H8686] took down H376 every man H572 his sack H776 to the ground H6605 [H8799] , and opened H376 every man H572 his sack.
12 H2664 [H8762] And he searched H2490 [H8689] , and began H1419 at the eldest H3615 [H8765] , and stopped H6996 at the youngest H1375 : and the cup H4672 [H8735] was found H1144 in Benjamin's H572 sack.
13 H7167 [H8799] Then they tore H8071 their clothes H6006 [H8799] , and loaded H376 every man H2543 his donkey H7725 [H8799] , and returned H5892 to the city.
14 H3063 And Judah H251 and his brethren H935 [H8799] came H3130 to Joseph's H1004 house H5307 [H8799] ; for he was yet there: and they fell H6440 before him H776 on the ground.
15 H3130 And Joseph H559 [H8799] said H4639 to them, What deed H6213 [H8804] is this that ye have done H3045 [H8804] ? knew ye H376 not that such a man H5172 [H8763] as I can certainly H5172 [H8762] divine?
16 H3063 And Judah H559 [H8799] said H559 [H8799] , What shall we say H113 to my lord H1696 [H8762] ? what shall we speak H6663 [H8691] ? or how shall we clear ourselves H430 ? God H4672 [H8804] hath found out H5771 the iniquity H5650 of thy servants H113 : behold, we are my lord's H5650 servants H1571 , both we, and he also H834 H3027 with whom H1375 the cup H4672 [H8738] is found.
17 H559 [H8799] And he said H2486 , Far be it from me H6213 [H8800] that I should do H2063 so H376 : the man H3027 in whose hand H1375 the cup H4672 [H8738] is found H5650 , he shall be my servant H5927 [H8798] ; and as for you, go H7965 in peace H1 to your father.
18 H3063 Then Judah H5066 [H8799] came near H559 [H8799] to him, and said H994 , O H113 my lord H5650 , let thy servant H1696 [H8762] , I pray thee, speak H1697 a word H113 in my lord's H241 ears H639 , and let not thy anger H2734 [H8799] burn H5650 against thy servant H6547 : for thou art even as Pharaoh.
19 H113 My lord H7592 [H8804] asked H5650 his servants H559 [H8800] , saying H3426 , Have H1 ye a father H251 , or a brother?
20 H559 [H8799] And we said H113 to 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 [H8804] is dead H3498 [H8735] , and he alone is left H517 of his mother H1 , and his father H157 [H8804] loveth him.
21 H559 [H8799] And thou saidst H5650 to thy servants H3381 [H8685] , Bring him down H7760 [H8799] to me, that I may set H5869 my eyes upon him.
22 H559 [H8799] And we said H113 to my lord H5288 , The lad H3201 [H8799] cannot H5800 [H8800] leave H1 his father H5800 [H8804] : for if he should leave H1 his father H4191 [H8804] , his father would die.
23 H559 [H8799] And thou saidst H5650 to thy servants H3808 , Except H6996 your youngest H251 brother H3381 [H8799] shall come down H7200 0 H3254 0 with you, ye shall see H6440 my face H7200 H3254 [H8800] no more.
24 H5927 [H8804] And it came to pass when we came H5650 to thy servant H1 my father H5046 [H8686] , we told H1697 him the words H113 of my lord.
25 H1 And our father H559 [H8799] said H7725 [H8798] , Go again H7666 [H8798] , buy H4592 us a little H400 food.
26 H559 [H8799] And we said H3201 [H8799] , We cannot H3381 [H8800] go down H6996 : if our youngest H251 brother H3426 shall be H3381 [H8804] with us, then will we go down H3201 [H8799] : for we may H7200 [H8800] not see H376 the man's H6440 face H369 , except H6996 our youngest H251 brother shall be with us.
27 H5650 And thy servant H1 my father H559 [H8799] said H3045 [H8804] to us, Ye know H802 that my wife H3205 [H8804] bore H8147 me two sons:
28 H259 And the one H3318 [H8799] went out H559 [H8799] from me, and I said H2963 [H8800] , Surely H2963 [H8776] he is torn in pieces H7200 [H8804] ; and I have not seen him H2008 since:
29 H3947 [H8804] And if ye take H5973 this also from H6440 me H611 , and harm H7136 [H8804] shall befall him H3381 [H8689] , ye shall bring down H7872 my gray hairs H7451 with sorrow H7585 to the grave.
30 H935 [H8800] Now therefore when I come H5650 to thy servant H1 my father H5288 , and the lad H5315 is not with us; seeing that his life H7194 [H8803] is bound up H5315 in the lad's life;
31 H7200 [H8800] It shall come to pass, when he seeth H5288 that the lad H4191 [H8804] is not with us, that he will die H5650 : and thy servants H3381 [H8689] shall bring down H7872 the gray hairs H5650 of thy servant H1 our father H3015 with sorrow H7585 to the grave.
32 H5650 For thy servant H6148 [H8804] became surety H5288 for the lad H5973 to H1 my father H559 [H8800] , saying H935 [H8686] , If I bring H2398 [H8804] him not to thee, then I shall bear the blame H1 to my father H3117 for ever.
33 H5650 Now therefore, I pray thee, let thy servant H3427 [H8799] abide H5288 instead of the lad H5650 a slave H113 to my lord H5288 ; and let the lad H5927 [H8799] return H251 with his brethren.
