Genesis 44

  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 sovereign 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 sovereign 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 earth, 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 earth.
  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 sovereign? H1696 [H8762] what shall we speak? H6663 [H8691] or how shall we clear ourselves? H430 God H4672 [H8804] hath found out H5771 the perversity 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 sovereign, 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 sovereign 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 sovereign, 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 sovereign, 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 sovereign.
  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 sovereign; H5288 and let the lad H5927 [H8799] return H251 with his brethren.
  34 H349 For how H5927 [H8799] shall I return H1 to my father, H5288 and the lad H7200 [H8799] be not with me? lest perhaps I see H7451 the evil H4672 [H8799] that shall come on H1 my father.
