44:1 And he commanded [H6680] the steward of his house [H1004] , saying [H559] , Fill [H4390] the men's [H582] sacks [H572] [with] food [H400] , as much as [H834] they can [H3201] carry [H5375] , and put [H7760] every man's [H376] money [H3701] in his sack's [H572] mouth [H6310] .(the steward: Heb. him that was over his house)

44:2 And put [H7760] my cup [H1375] , the silver [H3701] cup [H1375] , in the sack's [H572] mouth [H6310] of the youngest [H6996] , and his corn [H7668] money [H3701] . And he did [H6213] according to the word [H1697] that Joseph [H3130] had spoken [H1696] .

44:3 As soon as the morning [H1242] was light [H215] , the men [H582] were sent away [H7971] , they and their asses [H2543] .

44:4 [And] when they were gone out [H3318] of the city [H5892] , [and] not [yet] far off [H7368] , Joseph [H3130] said [H559] unto his steward [H1004] , Up [H6965] , follow [H7291] after [H310] the men [H582] ; and when thou dost overtake [H5381] them, say [H559] unto them, Wherefore have ye rewarded [H7999] evil [H7451] for good [H2896] ?

44:5 [Is] not this [it] in which my lord [H113] drinketh [H8354] , and whereby indeed [H5172] he divineth [H5172] ? ye have done evil [H7489] in so doing [H6213] .(divineth: or, maketh trial?)

44:6 And he overtook [H5381] them, and he spake [H1696] unto them these same [H428] words [H1697] .

44:7 And they said [H559] unto him, Wherefore saith [H1696] my lord [H113] these words [H1697] ? God forbid [H2486] that thy servants [H5650] should do [H6213] according to this thing [H1697] :

44:8 Behold, the money [H3701] , which we found [H4672] in our sacks' [H572] mouths [H6310] , we brought again [H7725] unto thee out of the land [H776] of Canaan [H3667] : how then should we steal [H1589] out of thy lord's [H113] house [H1004] silver [H3701] or gold [H2091] ?

44:9 With whomsoever of thy servants [H5650] it be found [H4672] , both let him die [H4191] , and we also will be my lord's [H113] bondmen [H5650] .

44:10 And he said [H559] , Now also [let] it [be] according unto your words [H1697] : [H3651] he with whom it is found [H4672] shall be my servant [H5650] ; and ye shall be blameless [H5355] .

44:11 Then they speedily [H4116] took down [H3381] every man [H376] his sack [H572] to the ground [H776] , and opened [H6605] every man [H376] his sack [H572] .

44:12 And he searched [H2664] , [and] began [H2490] at the eldest [H1419] , and left [H3615] at the youngest [H6996] : and the cup [H1375] was found [H4672] in Benjamin's [H1144] sack [H572] .

44:13 Then they rent [H7167] their clothes [H8071] , and laded [H6006] every man [H376] his ass [H2543] , and returned [H7725] to the city [H5892] .

44:14 And Judah [H3063] and his brethren [H251] came [H935] to Joseph's [H3130] house [H1004] ; for he [was] yet there: and they fell [H5307] before him [H6440] on the ground [H776] .

44:15 And Joseph [H3130] said [H559] unto them, What deed [H4639] [is] this that ye have done [H6213] ? wot ye [H3045] not that such a man [H376] as I can certainly [H5172] divine [H5172] ?(divine: or, make trial?)

44:16 And Judah [H3063] said [H559] , What shall we say [H559] unto my lord [H113] ? what shall we speak [H1696] ? or how shall we clear ourselves [H6663] ? God [H430] hath found out [H4672] the iniquity [H5771] of thy servants [H5650] : behold, we [are] my lord's [H113] servants [H5650] , both we, and [he] also [H1571] with whom [H834] [H3027] the cup [H1375] is found [H4672] .

44:17 And he said [H559] , God forbid [H2486] that I should do [H6213] so [H2063] : [but] the man [H376] in whose hand [H3027] the cup [H1375] is found [H4672] , he shall be my servant [H5650] ; and as for you, get you up [H5927] in peace [H7965] unto your father [H1] .

44:18 Then Judah [H3063] came near [H5066] unto him, and said [H559] , Oh [H994] my lord [H113] , let thy servant [H5650] , I pray thee, speak [H1696] a word [H1697] in my lord's [H113] ears [H241] , and let not thine anger [H639] burn [H2734] against thy servant [H5650] : for thou [art] even as Pharaoh [H6547] .

44:19 My lord [H113] asked [H7592] his servants [H5650] , saying [H559] , Have [H3426] ye a father [H1] , or a brother [H251] ?

44:20 And we said [H559] unto my lord [H113] , We have [H3426] a father [H1] , an old man [H2205] , and a child [H3206] of his old age [H2208] , a little one [H6996] ; and his brother [H251] is dead [H4191] , and he alone is left [H3498] of his mother [H517] , and his father [H1] loveth [H157] him.

44:21 And thou saidst [H559] unto thy servants [H5650] , Bring him down [H3381] unto me, that I may set [H7760] mine eyes [H5869] upon him.

44:22 And we said [H559] unto my lord [H113] , The lad [H5288] cannot [H3201] leave [H5800] his father [H1] : for [if] he should leave [H5800] his father [H1] , [his father] would die [H4191] .

44:23 And thou saidst [H559] unto thy servants [H5650] , Except [H3808] your youngest [H6996] brother [H251] come down [H3381] with you, ye shall see [H7200] [H3254] my face [H6440] no more [H7200] [H3254] .

44:24 And it came to pass when we came up [H5927] unto thy servant [H5650] my father [H1] , we told [H5046] him the words [H1697] of my lord [H113] .

44:25 And our father [H1] said [H559] , Go again [H7725] , [and] buy [H7666] us a little [H4592] food [H400] .

44:26 And we said [H559] , We cannot [H3201] go down [H3381] : if our youngest [H6996] brother [H251] be [H3426] with us, then will we go down [H3381] : for we may [H3201] not see [H7200] the man's [H376] face [H6440] , except [H369] our youngest [H6996] brother [H251] [be] with us.

44:27 And thy servant [H5650] my father [H1] said [H559] unto us, Ye know [H3045] that my wife [H802] bare [H3205] me two [H8147] [sons]:

44:28 And the one [H259] went out [H3318] from me, and I said [H559] , Surely [H2963] he is torn in pieces [H2963] ; and I saw him [H7200] not since [H2008] :

44:29 And if ye take [H3947] this also from [H5973] me [H6440] , and mischief [H611] befall him [H7136] , ye shall bring down [H3381] my gray hairs [H7872] with sorrow [H7451] to the grave [H7585] .

44:30 Now therefore when I come [H935] to thy servant [H5650] my father [H1] , and the lad [H5288] [be] not with us; seeing that his life [H5315] is bound up [H7194] in the lad's life [H5315] ;

44:31 It shall come to pass, when he seeth [H7200] that the lad [H5288] [is] not [with us], that he will die [H4191] : and thy servants [H5650] shall bring down [H3381] the gray hairs [H7872] of thy servant [H5650] our father [H1] with sorrow [H3015] to the grave [H7585] .

44:32 For thy servant [H5650] became surety [H6148] for the lad [H5288] unto [H5973] my father [H1] , saying [H559] , If I bring [H935] him not unto thee, then I shall bear the blame [H2398] to my father [H1] for ever [H3117] .

44:33 Now therefore, I pray thee, let thy servant [H5650] abide [H3427] instead of the lad [H5288] a bondman [H5650] to my lord [H113] ; and let the lad [H5288] go up [H5927] with his brethren [H251] .

44:34 For how [H349] shall I go up [H5927] to my father [H1] , and the lad [H5288] [be] not with me? lest peradventure I see [H7200] the evil [H7451] that shall come on [H4672] my father [H1] .(come: Heb. find my father)
