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 noses 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 tightness H5315 of his breath, H2603 [H8692] when he asked for favour H8085 [H8804] from us, and we would not hear; H6869 therefore is this tightness 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 land.
  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 land, 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 give 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: give 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.
