43:1 And the famine [H7458] [was] sore [H3515] in the land [H776] .

43:2 And it came to pass, when they had eaten up [H3615] [H398] the corn [H7668] which they had brought out [H935] of Egypt [H4714] , their father [H1] said [H559] unto them, Go again [H7725] , buy [H7666] us a little [H4592] food [H400] .

43:3 And Judah [H3063] spake [H559] unto him, saying [H559] , The man [H376] did solemnly [H5749] protest [H5749] unto us, saying [H559] , Ye shall not see [H7200] my face [H6440] , except [H1115] your brother [H251] [be] with you.(did: Heb. protesting protested)

43:4 If thou wilt [H3426] send [H7971] our brother [H251] with us, we will go down [H3381] and buy [H7666] thee food [H400] :

43:5 But if thou wilt not send [H7971] [him], we will not go down [H3381] : for the man [H376] said [H559] unto us, Ye shall not see [H7200] my face [H6440] , except your brother [H251] [be] with you.

43:6 And Israel [H3478] said [H559] , Wherefore dealt ye [so] ill [H7489] with me, [as] to tell [H5046] the man [H376] whether ye had yet a brother [H251] ?

43:7 And they said [H559] , The man [H376] asked [H7592] us straitly [H7592] of our state, and of our kindred [H4138] , saying [H559] , [Is] your father [H1] yet alive [H2416] ? have ye [H3426] [another] brother [H251] ? and we told [H5046] him according [H5921] to the tenor [H6310] of these words [H1697] : could we certainly [H3045] know [H3045] that he would say [H559] , Bring [H3381] your brother [H251] down [H3381] ?(asked: Heb. asking asked us)(tenor: Heb. mouth)(could: Heb. knowing could we know)

43:8 And Judah [H3063] said [H559] unto Israel [H3478] his father [H1] , Send [H7971] the lad [H5288] with me, and we will arise [H6965] and go [H3212] ; that we may live [H2421] , and not die [H4191] , both we, and thou, [and] also our little ones [H2945] .

43:9 I will be surety [H6148] for him; of my hand [H3027] shalt thou require [H1245] him: if [H518] I bring [H935] him not [H518] unto thee, and set [H3322] him before thee [H6440] , then let me bear the blame [H2398] for ever [H3117] :

43:10 For except [H3884] we had lingered [H4102] , surely now we had returned [H7725] this second time [H6471] .(this: or, twice by this)

43:11 And their father [H1] Israel [H3478] said [H559] unto them, If [it must be] so now [H645] , do [H6213] this; take [H3947] of the best fruits [H2173] in the land [H776] in your vessels [H3627] , and carry down [H3381] the man [H376] a present [H4503] , a little [H4592] balm [H6875] , and a little [H4592] honey [H1706] , spices [H5219] , and myrrh [H3910] , nuts [H992] , and almonds [H8247] :

43:12 And take [H3947] double [H4932] money [H3701] in your hand [H3027] ; and the money [H3701] that was brought again [H7725] in the mouth [H6310] of your sacks [H572] , carry [it] again [H7725] in your hand [H3027] ; peradventure it [was] an oversight [H4870] :

43:13 Take [H3947] also your brother [H251] , and arise [H6965] , go again [H7725] unto the man [H376] :

43:14 And God [H410] Almighty [H7706] give [H5414] you mercy [H7356] before [H6440] the man [H376] , that he may send away [H7971] your other [H312] brother [H251] , and Benjamin [H1144] . If [H834] I be bereaved [H7921] [of my children], I am bereaved [H7921] .(If: or, And I, as I have been, etc.)

43:15 And the men [H582] took [H3947] that [H2063] present [H4503] , and they took [H3947] double [H4932] money [H3701] in their hand [H3027] , and Benjamin [H1144] ; and rose up [H6965] , and went down [H3381] to Egypt [H4714] , and stood [H5975] before [H6440] Joseph [H3130] .

43:16 And when Joseph [H3130] saw [H7200] Benjamin [H1144] with [H854] them, he said [H559] to the ruler of his house [H1004] , Bring [H935] [these] men [H582] home [H1004] , and slay [H2873] [H2874] , and make ready [H3559] ; for [these] men [H582] shall dine [H398] with me at noon [H6672] .(slay: Heb. kill a killing)(dine: Heb. eat)

43:17 And the man [H376] did [H6213] as Joseph [H3130] bade [H559] ; and the man [H376] brought [H935] the men [H582] into Joseph's [H3130] house [H1004] .

43:18 And the men [H582] were afraid [H3372] , because they were brought [H935] into Joseph's [H3130] house [H1004] ; and they said [H559] , Because [H1697] of the money [H3701] that was returned [H7725] in our sacks [H572] at the first time [H8462] are we brought in [H935] ; that he may seek occasion [H1556] against us, and fall [H5307] upon us, and take [H3947] us for bondmen [H5650] , and our asses [H2543] .(seek: Heb. roll himself upon us)

43:19 And they came near [H5066] to the steward [H376] of Joseph's [H3130] house [H1004] , and they communed [H1696] with him at the door [H6607] of the house [H1004] ,

43:20 And said [H559] , O [H994] sir [H113] , we came indeed [H3381] down [H3381] at the first time [H8462] to buy [H7666] food [H400] :(we: Heb. coming down we came down)

43:21 And it came to pass, when we came [H935] to the inn [H4411] , that we opened [H6605] our sacks [H572] , and, behold, [every] man's [H376] money [H3701] [was] in the mouth [H6310] of his sack [H572] , our money [H3701] in full weight [H4948] : and we have brought it again [H7725] in our hand [H3027] .

43:22 And other [H312] money [H3701] have we brought down [H3381] in our hands [H3027] to buy [H7666] food [H400] : we cannot tell [H3045] who put [H7760] our money [H3701] in our sacks [H572] .

43:23 And he said [H559] , Peace [H7965] [be] to you, fear [H3372] not: your God [H430] , and the God [H430] of your father [H1] , hath given [H5414] you treasure [H4301] in your sacks [H572] : I had [H935] your money [H3701] . And he brought [H3318] Simeon [H8095] out unto them.(I had: Heb. your money came to me)

43:24 And the man [H376] brought [H935] the men [H582] into Joseph's [H3130] house [H1004] , and gave [H5414] [them] water [H4325] , and they washed [H7364] their feet [H7272] ; and he gave [H5414] their asses [H2543] provender [H4554] .

43:25 And they made ready [H3559] the present [H4503] against [H5704] Joseph [H3130] came [H935] at noon [H6672] : for they heard [H8085] that they should eat [H398] bread [H3899] there.

43:26 And when Joseph [H3130] came [H935] home [H1004] , they brought [H935] him the present [H4503] which [was] in their hand [H3027] into the house [H1004] , and bowed [H7812] themselves to him to the earth [H776] .

43:27 And he asked [H7592] them of [their] welfare [H7965] , and said [H559] , [Is] your father [H1] well [H7965] , the old man [H2205] of whom ye spake [H559] ? [Is] he yet alive [H2416] ?(welfare: Heb. peace)(Is your: Heb. Is there peace to your father?)

43:28 And they answered [H559] , Thy servant [H5650] our father [H1] [is] in good health [H7965] , he [is] yet alive [H2416] . And they bowed down their heads [H6915] , and made obeisance [H7812] .

43:29 And he lifted up [H5375] his eyes [H5869] , and saw [H7200] his brother [H251] Benjamin [H1144] , his mother's [H517] son [H1121] , and said [H559] , [Is] this your younger [H6996] brother [H251] , of whom ye spake [H559] unto me? And he said [H559] , God [H430] be gracious [H2603] unto thee, my son [H1121] .

43:30 And Joseph [H3130] made haste [H4116] ; for his bowels [H7356] did yearn [H3648] upon his brother [H251] : and he sought [H1245] [where] to weep [H1058] ; and he entered [H935] into [his] chamber [H2315] , and wept [H1058] there.

43:31 And he washed [H7364] his face [H6440] , and went out [H3318] , and refrained [H662] himself, and said [H559] , Set on [H7760] bread [H3899] .

43:32 And they set on [H7760] for him by himself, and for them by themselves, and for the Egyptians [H4713] , which did eat [H398] with him, by themselves: because the Egyptians [H4713] might [H3201] not eat [H398] bread [H3899] with the Hebrews [H5680] ; for that [is] an abomination [H8441] unto the Egyptians [H4714] .

43:33 And they sat [H3427] before him [H6440] , the firstborn [H1060] according to his birthright [H1062] , and the youngest [H6810] according to his youth [H6812] : and the men [H582] marvelled [H8539] one [H376] at another [H7453] .

43:34 And he took [H5375] [and sent] messes [H4864] unto them from before him [H6440] : but Benjamin's [H1144] mess [H4864] was five [H2568] times [H3027] so much as [H7235] any of theirs. And they drank [H8354] , and were merry [H7937] with him.(were: Heb. drank largely)
