Unchecked Copy BoxGen 44:17 - But he said, “Far be it from me to do this. The man in whose [fn]possession the cup has been found, he shall be my slave; but as for you, go up in peace to your father.”

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 44:20 - “We said to my lord, ‘We have an old father and a little child of his old age. Now his brother is dead, so he alone is left of his mother, and his father loves him.’

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 44:28 - and the one went out from me, and I said, “Surely he is torn in pieces,” and I have not seen him since.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 44:29 - ‘If you take this one also from [fn]me, and harm befalls him, you will bring my gray hair down to Sheol in [fn]sorrow.’
