And the famineH7458 was soreH3515 in the land.H776
And it cameH1961 to pass, whenH834 they had eatenH398 up the cornH7668 whichH834 they had broughtH935 out of Egypt,H4714 their fatherH1 saidH559 to them, GoH7725 again,H7725 buyH7666 us a littleH4592 food.H400
And JudahH3063 spokeH559 to him, saying,H559 The manH376 did solemnlyH5749 protestH5749 to us, saying,H559 You shall not seeH7200 my face,H6440 exceptH1115 your brotherH251 be with you.
IfH518 you will sendH7971 our brotherH251 with us, we will goH3381 downH3381 and buyH7666 you food:H400
But ifH518 you will not sendH7971 him, we will not goH3381 down:H3381 for the manH376 saidH559 to us, You shall not seeH7200 my face,H6440 exceptH1115 your brotherH251 be with you.
And IsraelH3478 said,H559 WhyH4100 dealt you so illH7489 with me, as to tellH5046 the manH376 whetherH5750 you had yetH5750 a brother?H251
And they said,H559 The manH376 askedH7592 us straightly of our state, and of our kindred,H4138 saying,H559 Is your fatherH1 yet alive?H2416 haveH3426 you another brother?H251 and we toldH5046 him accordingH5921 to the tenorH6310 of theseH428 words:H1697 could we certainly knowH3045 that he would say,H559 BringH3381 your brotherH251 down?H3381
And JudahH3063 saidH559 to IsraelH3478 his father,H1 SendH7971 the ladH5288 with me, and we will ariseH6965 and go;H3212 that we may live,H2421 and not die,H4191 bothH1571 we, and you, and alsoH1571 our littleH2945 ones.
I will be suretyH6148 for him; of my handH3027 shall you requireH1245 him: ifH518 I bringH935 him not to you, and setH3322 him beforeH6440 you, then let me bearH2398 the blameH2398 for ever:H3605
For exceptH3884 we had lingered,H4102 surelyH3588 nowH6258 we had returnedH7725 thisH2088 second time.H6471
And their fatherH1 IsraelH3478 saidH559 to them, IfH518 it must be soH3651 now,H645 doH6213 this;H2063 takeH3947 of the bestH2173 fruitsH2173 in the landH776 in your vessels,H3627 and carryH3381 downH3381 the manH376 a present,H4503 a littleH4592 balm,H6875 and a littleH4592 honey,H1706 spices,H5219 and myrrh,H3910 nuts,H992 and almonds:H8247
And takeH3947 doubleH4932 moneyH3701 in your hand;H3027 and the moneyH3701 that was broughtH7725 againH7725 in the mouthH6310 of your sacks,H572 carryH7725 it againH7725 in your hand;H3027 peradventureH194 it was an oversight:H4870
TakeH3947 also your brother,H251 and arise,H6965 goH7725 againH7725 to the man:H376
And GodH410 AlmightyH7706 giveH5414 you mercyH7356 beforeH6440 the man,H376 that he may sendH7971 away your otherH312 brother,H251 and Benjamin.H1144 IfH834 I be bereavedH7921 of my children, I am bereaved.H7921
And the menH582 tookH3947 that present,H4503 and they tookH3947 doubleH4932 moneyH3701 in their hand H3027and Benjamin;H1144 and roseH6965 up, and wentH3381 downH3381 to Egypt,H4714 and stoodH5975 beforeH6440 Joseph.H3130
And when JosephH3130 sawH7200 BenjaminH1144 with them, he saidH559 to the rulerH834 H5921 of his house,H1004 BringH935 these menH582 home,H1004 and slay,H2874 and make ready;H3559 for these menH582 shall dineH398 with me at noon.H6672
And the manH376 didH6213 as JosephH3130 bade;H559 and the manH376 broughtH935 the menH582 into Joseph'sH3130 house.H1004
And the menH582 were afraid,H3372 becauseH3588 they were broughtH935 into Joseph'sH3130 house;H1004 and they said,H559 BecauseH5921 H1697 of the moneyH3701 that was returnedH7725 in our sacksH572 at the firstH8462 timeH8462 are we broughtH935 in; that he may seekH1556 occasionH1556 againstH5921 us, and fallH5307 on us, and takeH3947 us for slaves,H5650 and our asses.H2543
And they cameH5066 nearH5066 to the stewardH376 of Joseph'sH3130 house,H1004 and they communedH1696 with him at the doorH6607 of the house,H1004
And said,H559 O sir,H113 we cameH3381 indeed downH3381 at the firstH8462 timeH8462 to buyH7666 food:H400
And it cameH1961 to pass, whenH3588 we cameH935 to the inn,H4411 that we openedH6605 our sacks,H572 and, behold,H2009 every man'sH376 moneyH3701 was in the mouthH6310 of his sack,H572 our moneyH3701 in full weight:H4948 and we have broughtH7725 it againH7725 in our hand.H3027
And otherH312 moneyH3701 have we broughtH3381 downH3381 in our handsH3027 to buyH7666 food:H400 we cannotH3808 tellH3045 whoH4310 putH7760 our moneyH3701 in our sacks.H572
And he said,H559 PeaceH7965 be to you, fearH3372 not: your God,H430 and the GodH430 of your father,H1 has givenH5414 you treasureH4301 in your sacks:H572 I hadH935 your money.H3701 And he broughtH3318 SimeonH8095 out to them.
And the manH376 broughtH935 the menH582 into Joseph'sH3130 house,H1004 and gaveH5414 them water,H4325 and they washedH7364 their feet;H7272 and he gaveH5414 their assesH2543 provender.H4554
And they made readyH3559 the presentH4503 againstH5704 JosephH3130 cameH935 at noon:H6672 for they heardH8085 that they should eatH398 breadH3899 there.H8033
And when JosephH3130 cameH935 home,H1004 they broughtH935 him the presentH4503 whichH834 was in their handH3027 into the house,H1004 and bowedH7812 themselves to him to the earth.H776
And he askedH7592 them of their welfare,H7965 and said,H559 Is your fatherH1 well,H7965 the oldH2205 man of whomH834 you spoke?H559 Is he yetH5750 alive?H2416
And they answered,H559 Your servantH5650 our fatherH1 is in goodH7965 health,H7965 he is yetH5750 alive.H2416 And they bowedH6915 downH6915 their heads, and made obeisance.H7812
And he liftedH5375 up his eyes,H5869 and sawH7200 his brotherH251 Benjamin,H1144 his mother'sH517 son,H1121 and said,H559 Is thisH2088 your youngerH6996 brother,H251 of whomH834 you spokeH559 to me? And he said,H559 GodH430 be graciousH2603 to you, my son.H1121
And JosephH3130 made haste;H4116 for his bowelsH7356 did yearnH3648 on his brother:H251 and he soughtH1245 where to weep;H1058 and he enteredH935 into his chamber,H2315 and weptH1058 there.H8033
And he washedH7364 his face,H6440 and wentH3318 out, and refrainedH662 himself, and said,H559 SetH7760 on bread.H3899
And they setH7760 on for him by himself, and for them by themselves,H905 and for the Egyptians,H4713 which did eatH398 with him, by themselves:H905 becauseH3588 the EgyptiansH4713 mightH3201 not eatH398 breadH3899 with the Hebrews;H5680 for that is an abominationH8441 to the Egyptians.H4714
And they satH3427 beforeH6440 him, the firstbornH1060 according to his birthright,H1062 and the youngestH6810 according to his youth:H6812 and the menH582 marveledH8539 oneH376 atH413 another.H7453
And he tookH5375 and sentH7971 messesH4864 to them from beforeH6440 him: but Benjamin'sH1144 messH4864 was fiveH2568 timesH3027 so muchH7235 as anyH3605 of their's. And they drank,H8354 and were merryH7937 with him.
