Genesis 43

  1 H7458 And the famine H3515 was severe H776 in the land.
  2 H3615 H398 [H8765] And it came to pass, when they had consumed H7668 the grain H935 [H8689] which they had brought H4714 from Egypt, H1 their father H559 [H8799] said H7725 [H8798] to them, Go again, H7666 [H8798] buy H4592 us a little H400 food.
  3 H3063 And Judah H559 [H8799] spoke H559 [H8800] to him, saying, H376 The man H5749 [H8687] did solemnly H5749 [H8689] protest H559 [H8800] to us, saying, H7200 [H8799] Ye shall not see H6440 my face, H1115 except H251 your brother be with you.
  4 H3426 If thou wilt H7971 [H8764] send H251 our brother H3381 [H8799] with us, we will go down H7666 [H8799] and buy H400 thee food:
  5 H7971 [H8764] But if thou wilt not send H3381 [H8799] him, we will not go down: H376 for the man H559 [H8804] said H7200 [H8799] to us, Ye shall not see H6440 my face, H251 except your brother be with you.
  6 H3478 And Israel H559 [H8799] said, H7489 [H8689] Why dealt ye so ill H5046 [H8687] with me, as to tell H376 the man H251 whether ye had yet a brother?
  7 H559 [H8799] And they said, H376 The man H7592 [H8804] asked H7592 [H8800] us carefully H4138 concerning our state, and our kindred, H559 [H8800] saying, H1 Is your father H2416 yet alive? H3426 have ye H251 another brother? H5046 [H8686] and we told H5921 him according H6310 to the mouth H1697 of these words: H3045 [H8800] could we certainly H3045 [H8799] know H559 [H8799] that he would say, H3381 0 Bring H251 your brother H3381 [H8685] down?
  8 H3063 And Judah H559 [H8799] said H3478 to Israel H1 his father, H7971 [H8798] Send H5288 the lad H6965 [H8799] with me, and we will arise H3212 [H8799] and go; H2421 [H8799] that we may live, H4191 [H8799] and not die, H2945 both we, and thou, and also our little ones.
  9 H6148 [H8799] I will be surety H3027 for him; of my hand H1245 [H8762] shalt thou require H518 0 him: if H935 [H8689] I bring H518 him not H3322 [H8689] to thee, and set H6440 him before thee, H2398 [H8804] then let me bear the blame H3117 for ever:
  10 H3884 For except H4102 [H8701] we had delayed, H7725 [H8804] surely now we had returned H6471 this second time.
  11 H1 And their father H3478 Israel H559 [H8799] said H645 to them, If it must be so now, H6213 [H8798] do H3947 [H8798] this; take H2173 of the best fruits H776 in the land H3627 in your vessels, H3381 [H8685] and carry down H376 to the man H4503 a present, H4592 a little H6875 balm, H4592 and a little H1706 honey, H5219 spices, H3910 and myrrh, H992 nuts, H8247 and almonds:
  12 H3947 [H8798] And take H4932 double H3701 money H3027 in your hand; H3701 and the money H7725 [H8716] that was returned H6310 in the mouth H572 of your sacks, H7725 [H8686] carry it again H3027 in your hand; H4870 it may be it was an oversight:
  13 H3947 [H8798] Take H251 also your brother, H6965 [H8798] and arise, H7725 [H8798] go again H376 to the man:
  14 H410 And God H7706 Almighty H5414 [H8799] give H7356 you compassions H6440 at the face of H376 the man, H7971 [H8765] that he may send away H312 your other H251 brother, H1144 and Benjamin. H834 If H7921 [H8804] I be bereaved H7921 [H8804] of my children, I am bereaved.
  15 H582 And the men H3947 [H8799] took H2063 that H4503 present, H3947 [H8804] and they took H4932 double H3701 money H3027 in their hand, H1144 and Benjamin; H6965 [H8799] and arose, H3381 [H8799] and went down H4714 to Egypt, H5975 [H8799] and stood H6440 at the face of H3130 Joseph.
  16 H3130 And when Joseph H7200 [H8799] saw H1144 Benjamin H854 with H559 [H8799] them, he said H1004 to the ruler of his house, H935 [H8685] Bring H582 these men H1004 home, H2873 H2874 [H8800] and slaughter H3559 [H8685] a beast, and make ready; H582 for these men H398 [H8799] shall dine H6672 with me at noon.
  17 H376 And the man H6213 [H8799] did H3130 as Joseph H559 [H8804] commanded; H376 and the man H935 [H8686] brought H582 the men H3130 into Joseph's H1004 house.
  18 H582 And the men H3372 [H8799] were afraid, H935 [H8717] because they were brought H3130 into Joseph's H1004 house; H559 [H8799] and they said, H1697 Because H3701 of the money H7725 [H8802] that was returned H572 in our sacks H8462 at the first time H935 [H8716] are we brought in; H1556 [H8705] that he may seek occasion H5307 [H8692] against us, and fall H3947 [H8800] upon us, and take H5650 us for slaves, H2543 and our donkeys.
  19 H5066 [H8799] And they came near H376 to the steward H3130 of Joseph's H1004 house, H1696 [H8762] and they spoke H6607 with him at the door H1004 of the house,
  20 H559 [H8799] And said, H994 O H113 sir, H3381 [H8804] we came down H3381 [H8800] indeed H8462 at the first time H7666 [H8800] to buy H400 food:
  21 H935 [H8804] And it came to pass, when we came H4411 to the inn, H6605 [H8799] that we opened H572 our sacks, H376 and, behold, every man's H3701 money H6310 was in the mouth H572 of his sack, H3701 our money H4948 in full weight: H7725 [H8686] and we have brought it again H3027 in our hand.
  22 H312 And other H3701 money H3381 [H8689] have we brought down H3027 in our hands H7666 [H8800] to buy H400 food: H3045 [H8804] we cannot tell H7760 [H8804] who put H3701 our money H572 in our sacks.
  23 H559 [H8799] And he said, H7965 Peace H3372 [H8799] be to you, fear H430 not: your God, H430 and the God H1 of your father, H5414 [H8804] hath given H4301 you treasure H572 in your sacks: H935 [H8804] I had H3701 your money. H3318 [H8686] And he brought H8095 Simeon out to them.
  24 H376 And the man H935 [H8686] brought H582 the men H3130 into Joseph's H1004 house, H5414 [H8799] and gave H4325 them water, H7364 [H8799] and they washed H7272 their feet; H5414 [H8799] and he gave H2543 their donkeys H4554 feed.
  25 H3559 [H8686] And they made ready H4503 the present H5704 for H3130 Joseph's H935 [H8800] coming H6672 at noon: H8085 [H8804] for they heard H398 [H8799] that they should eat H3899 bread there.
  26 H3130 And when Joseph H935 [H8799] came H1004 home, H935 [H8686] they brought H4503 him the present H3027 which was in their hand H1004 into the house, H7812 [H8691] and bowed H776 themselves to him to the earth.
  27 H7592 [H8799] And he asked H7965 them of their welfare, H559 [H8799] and said, H1 Is your father H7965 well, H2205 the old man H559 [H8804] of whom ye spoke? H2416 Is he yet alive?
  28 H559 [H8799] And they answered, H5650 Thy servant H1 our father H7965 is in good health, H2416 he is yet alive. H6915 [H8799] And they bowed their heads, H7812 [H8691] and bowed down.
  29 H5375 [H8799] And he lifted up H5869 his eyes, H7200 [H8799] and saw H251 his brother H1144 Benjamin, H517 his mother's H1121 son, H559 [H8799] and said, H6996 Is this your younger H251 brother, H559 [H8804] of whom ye spoke H559 [H8799] to me? And he said, H430 God H2603 [H8799] be gracious H1121 to thee, my son.
  30 H3130 And Joseph H4116 [H8762] made haste; H7356 for his compassions H3648 [H8738] yearned H251 toward his brother: H1245 [H8762] and he sought H1058 [H8800] where to weep; H935 [H8799] and he entered H2315 into his chamber, H1058 [H8799] and wept there.
  31 H7364 [H8799] And he washed H6440 his face, H3318 [H8799] and went out, H662 [H8691] and controlled H559 [H8799] himself, and said, H7760 [H8798] Set on H3899 bread.
  32 H7760 [H8799] And they set on H4713 for him by himself, and for them by themselves, and for the Egyptians, H398 [H8802] who ate H4713 with him, by themselves: because the Egyptians H3201 [H8799] might H398 [H8800] not eat H3899 bread H5680 with the Hebrews; H8441 for that is an abomination H4714 to the Egyptians.
  33 H3427 [H8799] And they sat H6440 before him, H1060 the firstborn H1062 according to his birthright, H6810 and the youngest H6812 according to his youth: H582 and the men H8539 [H8799] wondered H376 one H7453 at another.
  34 H5375 [H8799] And he took H4864 and sent messes H6440 to them from before him: H1144 but Benjamin's H4864 mess H2568 was five H3027 times H7235 [H8799] so much as H8354 [H8799] any of theirs. And they drank, H7937 [H8799] and were merry with him.
