42:1 Now when Jacob [H3290] saw [H7200] that there was [H3426] corn [H7668] in Egypt [H4714] , Jacob [H3290] said [H559] unto his sons [H1121] , Why do ye look [H7200] one upon another?

42:2 And he said [H559] , Behold, I have heard [H8085] that there is [H3426] corn [H7668] in Egypt [H4714] : get you down [H3381] thither, and buy [H7666] for us from thence; that we may live [H2421] , and not die [H4191] .

42:3 And Joseph's [H3130] ten [H6235] brethren [H251] went down [H3381] to buy [H7666] corn [H1250] in Egypt [H4714] .

42:4 But Benjamin [H1144] , Joseph's [H3130] brother [H251] , Jacob [H3290] sent [H7971] not with his brethren [H251] ; for he said [H559] , Lest peradventure [H6435] mischief [H611] befall him [H7122] .

42:5 And the sons [H1121] of Israel [H3478] came [H935] to buy [H7666] [corn] among [H8432] those that came [H935] : for the famine [H7458] was in the land [H776] of Canaan [H3667] .

42:6 And Joseph [H3130] [was] the governor [H7989] over the land [H776] , [and] he [it was] that sold [H7666] to all the people [H5971] of the land [H776] : and Joseph's [H3130] brethren [H251] came [H935] , and bowed down [H7812] themselves before him [with] their faces [H639] to the earth [H776] .

42:7 And Joseph [H3130] saw [H7200] his brethren [H251] , and he knew [H5234] them, but made himself strange [H5234] unto them, and spake [H1696] roughly [H7186] unto them; and he said [H559] unto them, Whence [H370] come [H935] ye? And they said [H559] , From the land [H776] of Canaan [H3667] to buy [H7666] food [H400] .(roughly: Heb. hard things with them)

42:8 And Joseph [H3130] knew [H5234] his brethren [H251] , but they knew [H5234] not him.

42:9 And Joseph [H3130] remembered [H2142] the dreams [H2472] which he dreamed [H2492] of them, and said [H559] unto them, Ye [are] spies [H7270] ; to see [H7200] the nakedness [H6172] of the land [H776] ye are come [H935] .

42:10 And they said [H559] unto him, Nay, my lord [H113] , but to buy [H7666] food [H400] are thy servants [H5650] come [H935] .

42:11 We [H5168] [are] all one [H259] man's [H376] sons [H1121] ; we [are] true [H3651] [men], thy servants [H5650] are no spies [H7270] .

42:12 And he said [H559] unto them, Nay, but to see [H7200] the nakedness [H6172] of the land [H776] ye are come [H935] .

42:13 And they said [H559] , Thy servants [H5650] [are] twelve [H8147] [H6240] brethren [H251] , the sons [H1121] of one [H259] man [H376] in the land [H776] of Canaan [H3667] ; and, behold, the youngest [H6996] [is] this day [H3117] with our father [H1] , and one [H259] [is] not.

42:14 And Joseph [H3130] said [H559] unto them, That [is it] that I spake [H1696] unto you, saying [H559] , Ye [are] spies [H7270] :

42:15 Hereby [H2063] ye shall be proved [H974] : By the life [H2416] of Pharaoh [H6547] ye shall not go forth [H3318] hence, except your youngest [H6996] brother [H251] come [H935] hither.

42:16 Send [H7971] one [H259] of you, and let him fetch [H3947] your brother [H251] , and ye shall be kept in prison [H631] , that your words [H1697] may be proved [H974] , whether [there be any] truth [H571] in [H854] you: or else [H3808] by the life [H2416] of Pharaoh [H6547] surely ye [are] spies [H7270] .(kept: Heb. bound)

42:17 And he put them all together [H622] into ward [H4929] three [H7969] days [H3117] .(put: Heb. gathered)

42:18 And Joseph [H3130] said [H559] unto them the third [H7992] day [H3117] , This do [H6213] , and live [H2421] ; [for] I fear [H3373] God [H430] :

42:19 If ye [be] true [H3651] [men], let one [H259] of your brethren [H251] be bound [H631] in the house [H1004] of your prison [H4929] : go [H3212] ye, carry [H935] corn [H7668] for the famine [H7459] of your houses [H1004] :

42:20 But bring [H935] your youngest [H6996] brother [H251] unto me; so shall your words [H1697] be verified [H539] , and ye shall not die [H4191] . And they did [H6213] so.

42:21 And they said [H559] one [H376] to another [H251] , We [are] verily [H61] guilty [H818] concerning our brother [H251] , in that [H834] we saw [H7200] the anguish [H6869] of his soul [H5315] , when he besought [H2603] us, and we would not hear [H8085] ; therefore is this distress [H6869] come [H935] upon us.

42:22 And Reuben [H7205] answered [H6030] them, saying [H559] , Spake I [H559] not unto you, saying [H559] , Do not sin [H2398] against the child [H3206] ; and ye would not hear [H8085] ? therefore, behold, also his blood [H1818] is required [H1875] .

42:23 And they knew [H3045] not that Joseph [H3130] understood [H8085] [them]; for he spake unto them by an interpreter [H3887] .(he spake: Heb. an interpreter was between them)

42:24 And he turned himself about [H5437] from them, and wept [H1058] ; and returned to them again [H7725] , and communed [H1696] with them, and took [H3947] from them Simeon [H8095] , and bound [H631] him before their eyes [H5869] .

42:25 Then Joseph [H3130] commanded [H6680] to fill [H4390] their sacks [H3627] with corn [H1250] , and to restore [H7725] every man's [H376] money [H3701] into his sack [H8242] , and to give [H5414] them provision [H6720] for the way [H1870] : and thus [H3651] did he [H6213] unto them.

42:26 And they laded [H5375] their asses [H2543] with the corn [H7668] , and departed [H3212] thence.

42:27 And as one [H259] of them opened [H6605] his sack [H8242] to give [H5414] his ass [H2543] provender [H4554] in the inn [H4411] , he espied [H7200] his money [H3701] ; for, behold, it [was] in his sack's [H572] mouth [H6310] .

42:28 And he said [H559] unto his brethren [H251] , My money [H3701] is restored [H7725] ; and, lo [H2009] , [it is] even in my sack [H572] : and their heart [H3820] failed [H3318] [them], and they were afraid [H2729] , saying [H559] one [H376] to another [H251] , What [is] this [that] God [H430] hath done [H6213] unto us?(failed: Heb. went forth)

42:29 And they came [H935] unto Jacob [H3290] their father [H1] unto the land [H776] of Canaan [H3667] , and told [H5046] him all that befell [H7136] unto them; saying [H559] ,

42:30 The man [H376] , [who is] the lord [H113] of the land [H776] , spake [H1696] roughly [H7186] to us, and took [H5414] us for spies [H7270] of the country [H776] .(roughly: Heb. with us hard things)

42:31 And we said [H559] unto him, We [are] true [H3651] [men]; we are no spies [H7270] :

42:32 We [be] twelve [H6240] [H8147] brethren [H251] , sons [H1121] of our father [H1] ; one [H259] [is] not, and the youngest [H6996] [is] this day [H3117] with our father [H1] in the land [H776] of Canaan [H3667] .

42:33 And the man [H376] , the lord [H113] of the country [H776] , said [H559] unto us, Hereby shall I know [H3045] that ye [are] true [H3651] [men]; leave [H3240] one [H259] of your brethren [H251] [here] with me, and take [H3947] [food for] the famine [H7459] of your households [H1004] , and be gone [H3212] :

42:34 And bring [H935] your youngest [H6996] brother [H251] unto me: then shall I know [H3045] that ye [are] no spies [H7270] , but [that] ye [are] true [H3651] [men: so] will I deliver [H5414] you your brother [H251] , and ye shall traffick [H5503] in the land [H776] .

42:35 And it came to pass as they emptied [H7324] their sacks [H8242] , that, behold, every man's [H376] bundle [H6872] of money [H3701] [was] in his sack [H8242] : and when [both] they and their father [H1] saw [H7200] the bundles [H6872] of money [H3701] , they were afraid [H3372] .

42:36 And Jacob [H3290] their father [H1] said [H559] unto them, Me have ye bereaved [H7921] [of my children]: Joseph [H3130] [is] not, and Simeon [H8095] [is] not, and ye will take [H3947] Benjamin [H1144] [away]: all these things are against me.

42:37 And Reuben [H7205] spake [H559] unto his father [H1] , saying [H559] , Slay [H4191] my two [H8147] sons [H1121] , if I bring [H935] him not to thee: deliver [H5414] him into my hand [H3027] , and I will bring him to thee again [H7725] .

42:38 And he said [H559] , My son [H1121] shall not go down [H3381] with you; for his brother [H251] is dead [H4191] , and he is left [H7604] alone: if mischief [H611] befall [H7122] him by the way [H1870] in the which ye go [H3212] , then shall ye bring down [H3381] my gray hairs [H7872] with sorrow [H3015] to the grave [H7585] .
