Unchecked Copy BoxGen 43:6 - And Israel said, “Why did you deal so wrongfully with me as to tell the man whether you had still another brother?”

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 43:7 - But they said, “The man asked us pointedly about ourselves and our family, saying, ‘Is your father still alive? Have you another brother?’ And we told him according to these words. Could we possibly have known that he would say, ‘Bring your brother down’?”

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 43:8 - Then Judah said to Israel his father, “Send the lad with me, and we will arise and go, that we may live and not die, both we and you and also our little ones.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 43:10 - “For if we had not lingered, surely by now we would have returned this second time.”

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 43:11 - And their father Israel said to them, “If it must be so, then do this: Take some of the best fruits of the land in your vessels and carry down a present for the man—a little balm and a little honey, spices and myrrh, pistachio nuts and almonds.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 43:12 - “Take double money in your hand, and take back in your hand the money that was returned in the mouth of your sacks; perhaps it was an oversight.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 43:13 - “Take your brother also, and arise, go back to the man.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 43:14 - “And may God Almighty give you mercy before the man, that he may release your other brother and Benjamin. If I am bereaved, I am bereaved!”

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 43:15 - So the men took that present and Benjamin, and they took double money in their hand, and arose and went down to Egypt; and they stood before Joseph.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 43:16 - When Joseph saw Benjamin with them, he said to the steward of his house, “Take these men to my home, and slaughter an animal and make ready; for these men will dine with me at noon.”

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 43:17 - Then the man did as Joseph ordered, and the man brought the men into Joseph’s house.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 43:18 - Now the men were afraid because they were brought into Joseph’s house; and they said, “It is because of the money, which was returned in our sacks the first time, that we are brought in, so that he may make a case against us and seize us, to take us as slaves with our donkeys.”

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 43:19 - When they drew near to the steward of Joseph’s house, they talked with him at the door of the house,

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 43:20 - and said, “O sir, we indeed came down the first time to buy food;

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 43:21 - “but it happened, when we came to the encampment, that we opened our sacks, and there, each man’s money was in the mouth of his sack, our money in full weight; so we have brought it back in our hand.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 43:22 - “And we have brought down other money in our hands to buy food. We do not know who put our money in our sacks.”

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 43:23 - But he said, “Peace be with you, do not be afraid. Your God and the God of your father has given you treasure in your sacks; I had your money.” Then he brought Simeon out to them.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 43:24 - So the man brought the men into Joseph’s house and gave them water, and they washed their feet; and he gave their donkeys feed.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 43:25 - Then they made the present ready for Joseph’s coming at noon, for they heard that they would eat bread there.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 43:26 - And when Joseph came home, they brought him the present which was in their hand into the house, and bowed down before him to the earth.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 43:27 - Then he asked them about their well-being, and said, “Is your father well, the old man of whom you spoke? Is he still alive?”

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 43:28 - And they answered, “Your servant our father is in good health; he is still alive.” And they bowed their heads down and prostrated themselves.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 43:29 - Then he lifted his eyes and saw his brother Benjamin, his mother’s son, and said, “Is this your younger brother of whom you spoke to me?” And he said, “God be gracious to you, my son.”

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 43:31 - Then he washed his face and came out; and he restrained himself, and said, “Serve the bread.”

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 43:32 - So they set him a place by himself, and them by themselves, and the Egyptians who ate with him by themselves; because the Egyptians could not eat food with the Hebrews, for that is an abomination to the Egyptians.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 43:33 - And they sat before him, the firstborn according to his birthright and the youngest according to his youth; and the men looked in astonishment at one another.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 43:34 - Then he took servings to them from before him, but Benjamin’s serving was five times as much as any of theirs. So they drank and were merry with him.
