Genesis 42

  1 H3290 Now when Jacob H7200 [H8799] saw H3426 that there was H7668 grain H4714 in Egypt H3290 , Jacob H559 [H8799] said H1121 to his sons H7200 [H8691] , Why do ye look one upon another?
  2 H559 [H8799] And he said H8085 [H8804] , Behold, I have heard H3426 that there is H7668 grain H4714 in Egypt H3381 [H8798] : go down H7666 [H8798] there, and buy H2421 [H8799] for us from there; that we may live H4191 [H8799] , and not die.
  3 H3130 And Joseph's H6235 ten H251 brethren H3381 [H8799] went down H7666 [H8800] to buy H1250 grain H4714 in Egypt.
  4 H1144 But Benjamin H3130 , Joseph's H251 brother H3290 , Jacob H7971 [H8804] sent H251 not with his brethren H559 [H8804] ; for he said H6435 , Lest perhaps H611 harm H7122 [H8799] shall befall him.
  5 H1121 And the sons H3478 of Israel H935 [H8799] came H7666 [H8800] to buy H8432 grain among H935 [H8802] those that came H7458 : for the famine H776 was in the land H3667 of Canaan.
  6 H3130 And Joseph H7989 was the governor H776 over the land H7666 [H8688] , and he it was that sold H5971 to all the people H776 of the land H3130 : and Joseph's H251 brethren H935 [H8799] came H7812 [H8691] , and bowed H639 themselves before him with their faces H776 to the earth.
  7 H3130 And Joseph H7200 [H8799] saw H251 his brethren H5234 [H8686] , and he knew H5234 [H8691] them, but made himself strange H1696 [H8762] to them, and spoke H7186 roughly H559 [H8799] to them; and he said H370 to them, Where H935 [H8804] do you come H559 [H8799] from? And they said H776 , From the land H3667 of Canaan H7666 [H8800] to buy H400 food.
  8 H3130 And Joseph H5234 [H8686] knew H251 his brethren H5234 [H8689] , but they knew not him.
  9 H3130 And Joseph H2142 [H8799] remembered H2472 the dreams H2492 [H8804] which he dreamed H559 [H8799] of them, and said H7270 [H8764] to them, Ye are spies H7200 [H8800] ; to see H6172 the nakedness H776 of the land H935 [H8804] have ye come.
  10 H559 [H8799] And they said H113 to him, No, my lord H7666 [H8800] , but to buy H400 food H5650 have thy servants H935 [H8804] come.
  11 H5168 We H259 are all one H376 man's H1121 sons H3651 ; we are honest H5650 men, thy servants H7270 [H8764] are no spies.
  12 H559 [H8799] And he said H7200 [H8800] to them, No, but to see H6172 the nakedness H776 of the land H935 [H8804] have ye come.
  13 H559 [H8799] And they said H5650 , Thy servants H8147 H6240 are twelve H251 brethren H1121 , the sons H259 of one H376 man H776 in the land H3667 of Canaan H6996 ; and, behold, the youngest H3117 is this day H1 with our father H259 , and one is not.
  14 H3130 And Joseph H559 [H8799] said H1696 [H8765] to them, That is what I spoke H559 [H8800] to you, saying H7270 [H8764] , Ye are spies:
  15 H2063 By this H974 [H8735] ye shall be proved H2416 : By the life H6547 of Pharaoh H3318 [H8799] ye shall not go forth H6996 from here, except your youngest H251 brother H935 [H8800] shall come here.
  16 H7971 [H8798] Send H259 one H3947 [H8799] of you, and let him bring H251 your brother H631 [H8734] , and ye shall be kept in prison H1697 , that your words H974 [H8735] may be proved H571 , whether there is any truth H854 in H3808 you: or else H2416 by the life H6547 of Pharaoh H7270 [H8764] surely ye are spies.
  17 H622 [H8799] And he put them all together H4929 into prison H7969 three H3117 days.
  18 H3130 And Joseph H559 [H8799] said H7992 to them the third H3117 day H6213 [H8798] , This do H2421 [H8798] , and live H3373 ; for I fear H430 God:
  19 H3651 If ye are honest H259 men, let one H251 of your brethren H631 [H8735] be bound H1004 in the house H4929 of your prison H3212 [H8798] : go H935 [H8685] ye, carry H7668 grain H7459 for the famine H1004 of your houses:
  20 H935 [H8686] But bring H6996 your youngest H251 brother H1697 to me; so shall your words H539 [H8735] be verified H4191 [H8799] , and ye shall not die H6213 [H8799] . And they did so.
  21 H559 [H8799] And they said H376 one H251 to another H61 , We are verily H818 guilty H251 concerning our brother H834 , in that H7200 [H8804] we saw H6869 the anguish H5315 of his soul H2603 [H8692] , when he besought H8085 [H8804] us, and we would not hear H6869 ; therefore is this distress H935 [H8804] come upon us.
  22 H7205 And Reuben H6030 [H8799] answered H559 [H8800] them, saying H559 [H8804] , Did I not speak H559 [H8800] to you, saying H2398 [H8799] , Do not sin H3206 against the young man H8085 [H8804] ; and ye would not hear H1818 ? therefore, behold, also his blood H1875 [H8738] is required.
  23 H3045 [H8804] And they knew H3130 not that Joseph H8085 [H8802] understood H3887 [H8688] them; for he spoke to them by an interpreter.
  24 H5437 [H8735] And he turned himself away H1058 [H8799] from them, and wept H7725 [H8799] ; and returned to them again H1696 [H8762] , and spoke H3947 [H8799] with them, and took H8095 from them Simeon H631 [H8799] , and bound H5869 him before their eyes.
  25 H3130 Then Joseph H6680 [H8762] commanded H4390 [H8762] to fill H3627 their sacks H1250 with grain H7725 [H8687] , and to restore H376 every man's H3701 money H8242 into his sack H5414 [H8800] , and to give H6720 them provision H1870 for the way H3651 : and thus H6213 [H8799] did he to them.
  26 H5375 [H8799] And they loaded H2543 their donkeys H7668 with the grain H3212 [H8799] , and departed from there.
  27 H259 And as one H6605 [H8799] of them opened H8242 his sack H5414 [H8800] to give H2543 his donkey H4554 feed H4411 at the inn H7200 [H8799] , he discovered H3701 his money H572 ; for, behold, it was in his sack's H6310 mouth.
  28 H559 [H8799] And he said H251 to his brethren H3701 , My money H7725 [H8717] is restored H2009 ; and, see H572 , it is even in my sack H3820 : and their heart H3318 [H8799] failed H2729 [H8799] them, and they were afraid H559 [H8800] , saying H376 one H251 to another H430 , What is this that God H6213 [H8804] hath done to us?
  29 H935 [H8799] And they came H3290 to Jacob H1 their father H776 to the land H3667 of Canaan H5046 [H8686] , and told H7136 [H8802] him all that befell H559 [H8800] them; saying,
  30 H376 The man H113 , who is the lord H776 of the land H1696 [H8765] , spoke H7186 roughly H5414 [H8799] to us, and took H7270 [H8764] us for spies H776 of the country.
  31 H559 [H8799] And we said H3651 to him, We are honest H7270 [H8764] men; we are no spies:
  32 H6240 H8147 We are twelve H251 brethren H1121 , sons H1 of our father H259 ; one H6996 is not, and the youngest H3117 is this day H1 with our father H776 in the land H3667 of Canaan.
  33 H376 And the man H113 , the lord H776 of the country H559 [H8799] , said H3045 [H8799] to us, By this shall I know H3651 that ye are honest H3240 [H8685] men; leave H259 one H251 of your brethren H3947 [H8798] here with me, and take H7459 food for the famine H1004 of your households H3212 [H8798] , and depart:
  34 H935 [H8685] And bring H6996 your youngest H251 brother H3045 [H8799] to me: then shall I know H7270 [H8764] that ye are no spies H3651 , but that ye are honest H5414 [H8799] men: then will I deliver H251 to you your brother H5503 [H8799] , and ye shall trade H776 in the land.
  35 H7324 [H8688] And it came to pass as they emptied H8242 their sacks H376 , that, behold, every man's H6872 bundle H3701 of money H8242 was in his sack H1 : and when they and their father H7200 [H8799] saw H6872 the bundles H3701 of money H3372 [H8799] , they were afraid.
  36 H3290 And Jacob H1 their father H559 [H8799] said H7921 [H8765] to them, Me have ye bereaved H3130 : Joseph H8095 is not, and Simeon H3947 [H8799] is not, and ye will take H1144 Benjamin away: all these things are against me.
  37 H7205 And Reuben H559 [H8799] spoke H1 to his father H559 [H8800] , saying H4191 [H8686] , Slay H8147 my two H1121 sons H935 [H8686] , if I bring H5414 [H8798] him not to thee: deliver H3027 him into my hand H7725 [H8686] , and I will bring him to thee again.
  38 H559 [H8799] And he said H1121 , My son H3381 [H8799] shall not go down H251 with you; for his brother H4191 [H8804] is dead H7604 [H8738] , and he is left H611 alone: if harm H7122 [H8804] shall befall H1870 him by the way H3212 [H8799] in which ye go H3381 [H8689] , then shall ye bring down H7872 my gray hairs H3015 with sorrow H7585 to the grave.
